Are you interested in planning a trip to the wild, wild, west?

If you’re a music or movie buff then you already know Rockford, Illinois is home to the famous American Rock Band, Cheap Trick. And that the Rockford Peaches; a 1940’s All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was the inspiration for the 1992 movie, A League of Their Own, starring Tom Hanks, Madonna, Geena Davis and Rosie O’Donnell.
But, do you know what other gems Rockford is hiding? If you are visiting the area, check out these things to do.
When visiting Washington State, there are things you just have to do. Like, visit a National Park. Hike a trail in the mountains. See the Space Needle. Take a picture by the gum wall in Pike Place. Buy a cup of coffee at the very first Starbucks. Whale watch in Puget Sound. And, you have to, have to, have to devote an entire day to hopping wineries.
Because- ranked as the second largest wine producing state in the U.S., it is safe to say Washington knows a thing or two about a fine, glass of wine. You won’t make it through all 300-some different wineries in a single day, but you can cross new ones off of your list each time you visit. Here are a few to get you started.

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.

Why, what were you thinking?
It’s true what they say about one man’s trash being another man’s treasure.
There’s a story that goes something like this:
Someone, somewhere, tossed out a bag of stale bagels that were…well, stale. Then someone else came along, looked at the same bag of discarded bagels and said to themselves, “I could salvage these and make a killer art piece.” So, they fished them out and hot glued them up. And that was the day the brilliant bagel display was born.
