Destinations / North America

Ocean City is filled with great breakfast hot spots. If you are looking for something small ,head to Dot’s Pastry Shop for a dozen donuts; the cream is the best. They usually go for $12 per dozen.


If you are looking for something a little more filling, Augie’s Omelette and Waffle House is the place to go. They have plenty of options and, if you can’t decide between eggs and waffles, don’t worry, they have an option with both. Meals vary, depending on what you get, but you won’t spend more than $15.


Once you are filled with breakfast, it’s time to hit the beach. Unfortunately, in Ocean City you have to pay to spend the day on the beach and each person in your group needs a pass. Day passes cost $5 and weekly passes cost $10.


If you are spending the whole day on the beach, pack your own lunch from home or head to the boardwalk for some delicious food. They have plenty of dining options ranging from pizza to seafood. The best spot for pizza is Manco & Manco Pizza, less crowded during the day. Slices range $2.50–4.


Once you are showered after the day at the beach, it’s time to start thinking about dinner. My favorite dinner restaurant is Piccini’s; its crab pizza is to die for. They also offer pasta dinners and seafood. No matter what you get you will love it. A dish from Piccini’s ranges $15–25.


After dinner, head back to the boardwalk to window shop, play games and catch great views of the ocean at night. If you still have room in your stomach, stop by Polish Water Ice or Kohr Bros. for a little treat.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum. Nestled in an enclave of greenery along the city's famed Colorado Boulevard, this museum offers a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city outside for connoisseurs to experience the work of some of the world's most famous artists.
