For a hearty breakfast, stop by South Coast Roast Cafe. They open early in the morning and close the kitchen at 3 p.m. every day. The restaurant offers vegan and vegetarian options for customers to choose from, creating a welcoming environment. Many recommend the Bodia Bowl, filled with harissa-roasted carrots, pomegranate olives, fresh avocado, pumpkin seeds, mango salsa and a few other key ingredients. This will cost less than $15.

After breakfast, take a stroll through the Lower Gardens. It’s a beautiful natural oasis within walking distance from the city center. There are also the upper and center gardens, just as nice. The Lower Gardens stands out because it’s home to an aviary.

A little on the pricier side, Bates Restaurant is perfect to visit at lunchtime for reduced prices. Keep the price low by ordering a delicious menu item and splitting it among friends. A two-course lunch would only set you back around $20.

Concluding lunch, visitors should make the trip out to the Jurassic Coast and enjoy the sites. It was once a fossil hunter’s favorite place to find fossils, but now most were discovered and travelers are likely not to find any. While driving through make sure to stop at the Corfe Castle.

There are many great options for dinner in Bournemouth; however, Arbor is truly one of the best. It’s open all day to promote a relaxed dining setting. Even when Arbor is crowded, it still feels spacious. The prices are reasonable and if you dine between 5–6:30 p.m., three courses are only $30. Many previous customers have given the establishment high reviews.

Travel Clothing with Secret Pockets

The idea of secret pockets in travel gear was once about waist wallets lying flesh on your stomach and awkward inner pockets. The location not only made it impossible for pickpockets to get to but also travelers trying to access their passports and cash. Other travel clothes promise to deter pick-pocketers but are also difficult to manage the bulky inner pockets while exploring.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Relaxing Regulations on Traveling with Liquid and Laptops

The TSA's ever-changing rules of shoes on or off, liquids and more are confusing to even savvy travelers. The rule of thumb is to stay flexible to anything reasonable the TSA asks and avoid bringing anything obviously off-limits like sharp objects including nail clippers and nail files. However, the TSA is relaxing its hands-on stance on laptops and liquids with the help of new scanning machines.
