La Provence: A Taste of France in Beaverton Oregon

I am one of those restaurant goers who likes to find something different, out of the way, not the usual fare. In order to find these “pearls” when traveling, I rely on various sources; locals who are willing to share their favorite eateries, hotel concierges, newspapers, internet (of course), and family members. On a recent trip to Portland, Oregon to visit family, my dear sister-in-law…

Kula Bistro: A Charming Pearl On Maui

Last week, my husband and I headed to Maui, Hawaii for the sole purpose of checking out the island cuisine. With an amazing variety of food on the island, we wanted to find and enjoy the pearls. But, not just any pearls. We wanted those out of the way places not on the tour maps and full of local flavor. Happily, we found Kula Bistro….

Locals Share Favorite Chattanooga Restaurants

We were in Chattanooga, Tennessee in May for Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga. It was a first time visit to the city for both of us. Admittedly, it was never on our wish list of cities to visit, but it should have been. Whether visiting for the first time or racing in the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, the city won’t disappoint. From tons of indoor and outdoor activities…

Have you ever heard anyone say anything negative about Santa Barbara? I certainly haven’t. The mere mention of the name conjures up pleasant memories of a visit or an idealized image of what Santa Barbara looks like. Whenever I say we’re visiting, the uniform response is “Oh, I love Santa Barbara”. In fact, we like the area so much we actually almost bought a house…

Favorite Montecito Santa Barbara Restaurants

My husband and I love the Santa Barbara area, especially Montecito. So much so that we almost bought a house there a few years back. While that didn’t happen, we still try to get there for a little escape whenever we can. And, when we do, our favorite things to do are shopping, eating, and wine tasting. This past visit, we were lucky to get…

5 Elements For The Perfect Quick Getaway

We would love to always be able to plan way ahead for our vacations, but all too often life intervenes and we aren’t allowed this luxury, so we head off for a quick getaway.  And, hey, sometimes travel spontaneity is really the way to go, especially if you’ve had the week from hell and really, really need to leave it all behind and unwind. When that…

Sarasota County Florida: Vacation Haven For The Sports Loving Family

Florida is one of our favorite places to visit, race, and train, especially the Gulf Coast. We have found that the beaches are amazing, the food clean and delicious, and that there’s plenty to do for the active sports’ family. Yes, there are the beaches and amazing cultural activities, but beyond that, Sherry WernickeSherry is one of the TriWivesClub’s founders. She is also a contributor…

Exploring Seattle And Beyond In 10 Days

Seattle is an amazing city. There’s the food, the museums, the shopping, and the beautiful sites, not to mention so many iconic places like Pike’s Place and Starbucks. But, you can’t visit Seattle unless you take time to visit these 3 places, too, in my opinion; Mount Rainier, Woodinville, and San Juan Island. Precious time to travel is at a premium for most people due…
