LA Locals Love: Madame Tussauds Hollywood

Madame Tussauds Hollywood Review Spiderman

When my family was in town for my wedding, we spent a week being complete tourists of Los Angeles and it was so much fun! Of course when you’re being tourists in Los Angeles, Hollywood is a must. We walked up and down Hollywood Boulevard all afternoon and it reminded me of a very popular post by my contributor, Wendy wrote: 5 Things You Must Do In Hollywood. Take a read if you’re headed out here! 

Originally, we were interested in visiting Madame Tusseauds Hollywood but were turned off after seeing the high prices. It was meant to be though, because as we were walking around, some guy handed us buy 1 get 1 free coupons! Score! If you’re looking for things to do in Hollywood, Madame Tussauds should be on your list.

2018 Travel Plans & Personal Resolutions

2018 Travel Plans and New Year Resolutions - Life in Wanderlust

Happy New Year, friends!

2017 was one of the best years of my life if not *the* best. Personally and professionally, I almost have no complaints. Some of my highlights are:

  • I got married and had the most seamless wedding full of love and our favorite people.
  • I started a new job that I absolutely love.
  • Life in Wanderlust grew tremendously and worked with incredible brands like Toyota, Suja, United HealthCare, Carnival Cruises, Coca Cola & more!
  • I traveled to tons of new places and back to familiar spots.
  • We welcomed a Corgi puppy into our little family. 
  • One of the happiest years ever! 

Best Buffets in Las Vegas: The Buffet at ARIA

Best Buffets in Vegas - The Buffet at ARIA

In 2017, I visited Las Vegas 5 times which is a personal record! If you're not too familiar with Las Vegas, the buffet scene is a serious thing there. Every hotel big or small offers a buffet and you can often buy these ridiculous unlimited 24 hour passes to selected buffets. While I've never tried the 24 hour passes, I have tried quite a few of the buffets on The Strip. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier but I'll be introducing the best buffets in Vegas on this blog each time I return to Sin City.

The first buffet I'm sharing is The Buffet at ARIA. It was actually my first time giving it a try since it was so close to where we were staying, the Monte Carlo. I have to say, I was super impressed with Aria's buffet. Just the atmosphere, cleanliness, design and customer service bumped it up to my top 3 favorite Vegas buffets before even trying the food! Don't worry, the food quality and selection went above and beyond my expectations, too.

Exploring the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada

Neon Museum Las Vegas

After visiting Las Vegas more than I can count, I finally made it to The Neon Museum! I first found out about it thanks to Instagram and ever since that, I've been fascinated. Since the only reason I was in Vegas this particular trip was for a Lady Gaga concert, I knew I could squeeze in a Neon Museum visit.

I'm so glad I did because it's really nothing like anything you'll ever experience elsewhere. I like to think I've visited quite a few museums around the world including little known spots but I can't think of anything that gets even close. It's such a classic Las Vegas museum, if that makes sense. I absolutely loved visiting and I can't wait to go back to the Neon Museum again for a night tour!
