North Dakota’s Devils Lake, has unparalleled hiking, fishing, and shopping. It is a community with over 500 businesses offering outstanding shopping, medical facilities, schools, a park system dedicated to maintaining good roads, quality water, and a safe and secure environment for citizens and visitors.

With the help of a local licensed guide, pull up a jumbo perch, walleye, or a northern pike. All you have to do is show up. They supply the boat/transportation, the tackle, and the techniques to help you find that trophy fish. The area is known for its breathtaking views, wildlife, wide-open land, salt-of-the-earth country charm, rich history, and variety of outdoor fun activities and opportunities. Ready for a road trip?

Even if you aren’t a player, the casino offers a stunning view nestled right along the lake and has a beautiful marina. After a long day, head out to Woodland Resort and stop in for dinner at Proz Lakeside At the Cove, located right on Creel Bay and sit outside along the lake for a view of a lifetime.
The Devils Lake Region is one of the best areas to take a hike. Sullys Hill offers wildlife, hiking trails and an overlook that has a breathless view of the hill and the lake. Graham’s Island State Park also offers walking trails with beautiful scenery.
Devils Lake derives its name from the Native American name Miniwaukan and Tribal tourism is a huge attraction in this area. Many of the wetlands, woodlands, grasslands, and associated wildlife are harbored in the area’s public lands such as The Basin and are comprised of the National Wildlife Refuge System, ND State Parks, ND Game and Fish lands and County Recreation areas. While you are in Devils Lake, check out the downtown area and don’t miss the opportunity to walk around the 14 buildings listed with the National Register of Historic Places. Several church buildings that stand in testament to the faith and heritage of pioneers including the beautiful Episcopal Church located on the corner of 6th St. and 5th Ave. NE, is made of locally gathered fieldstone, reminiscent of its English roots. In three square blocks, you’ll see turn-of-the-century architecture with 20 national register buildings built between 1885 and 1914.

In this day and age, being talented isn’t enough. In order to become successful, a musician needs to be business-savvy, have stage presence, and most importantly, have a strong sense of self. The music industry is full of rejection, so being able to rise above it and keep pushing is the key to longevity in this tough business.
The advantage that today’s musicians have, however, is technology. Aspiring musicians can now create their own music right from their computers, eliminating the need for professional studio time. Apps have also been making it easy for musicians to make and promote their music, something that wasn’t possible ten or so years ago. If you’re an up-and-coming musician finding it hard to break into the industry, here are a few apps to help make your life easier!
Imagine being able to manage your own career right from your smartphone. With the Special Guest app, you can! Special Guest is an entertainment booking app that lets talented people get paid to do what they love- perform! The app, founded by actor and comedian Damon Wayans Jr. and bestselling author and entrepreneur Kris Jones, works as a mutually beneficial platform that allows musicians to get booked for paid gigs, making it possible to manage your own career without an expensive talent agent. The app is free to sign up and performers get paid through the app, making Special Guest a must-have in any musician’s toolbox.
Any DIY musician call tell you how awesome GarageBand is! In fact, many now-famous musicians got their start by recording their own music on GarageBand, and musicians continue to use it as an alternative to paying for studio time. The GarageBand app offers many of the same features as the desktop version, making it a solid choice for the musician on the go. GarageBand allows users to make music using software instruments like drums, guitar, synthesizers, and a variety of other sound effects. GarageBand is a solid app that can take any musician’s career to the next level at the touch of a button!
Once you’ve recorded a track on GarageBand, head over to SoundCloud to share it! SoundCloud is a platform that allows musicians to upload and share their music with the world, broadening their audience and increasing their chances of being discovered. Some of your favorite rappers were once SoundCloud users, most notably Lil Pump, Lil Yachty, and Lil Uzi Vert. In addition to being able to share your own music, SoundCloud is also a great place to discover other artists that may not have achieved mainstream success. SoundCloud is essentially a social media platform for sharing and discovering new music, and something every up-and-coming musician should download ASAP!
When we start to write about a trip, the first thing we do is go back through the photos to jog our memories, relive the moments, and chose which photos to include. Typically, on a 4-5 day trip we have around 100 photos. This time, we had 547. Literally, hands-down, the most photogenic, instagrammable resort we have ever been to.
We are so excited about this resort because all of our favorite things came together. to curate the perfect vacation. Gourmet food, modern design and decor, top-shelf drinks, 5-star service, and a balance of tranquility and fun. Most importantly, a place we can bring our friends and family, over and over for a care-free getaway.
The room we chose was an Alcoba Ocean View King, which was spacious and offered unobstructed views of the ocean, an exterior double hydro spa tub and exterior lounging area where you can relax and enjoy the stunning panoramic view. All around the room are local touches of the culture and handcrafted pieces which are incorporated into the design elements, giving you a modern Mexico vibe.
The rooms are filled with snacks, drinks, bathroom amenities, and a Nespresso coffee machine. We knew if we needed anything from taking a cooking class, to advice on the best pool floats, we could ask our Local Host.

General advice about local culture, food, and pretty much anything you can imagine!
There are no middle school cafeteria buffets found here. There are high-end restaurants serving up international cuisine, all headed up by Chef Xavier Pérez Stone. The inspiration for Chef Xavi’s dishes comes from his existing culinary knowledge, and implementing cultural flavors, scents and textures demonstrating the purity and soul of Mexican tradition.
Mi Carisa is a love letter to the romantic coastlines and flavors of the Mediterranean. UNICO 20°87°’s most elevated dining experience, Mi Carisa focuses on the traditions and practices of coastal Italian cuisine. That culinary heritage is most deeply honored in the form of a beautiful wood-burning oven, imparting a wonderful smoky flavor to everything that passes through it. The warm, intimate setting lets each bite convey a sincere affection for the coastal Italian kitchen.
Cueva Siete, named for the seven origin caves of Mayan mythos, brings inspiration from all that is Yucatecan. A regionally focused concept serves dishes deeply rooted in Mexican flavors and traditions.
Mura House draws flavors from throughout Asia, with a concentration on Japan, they aims to achieve a balance between tradition and uniqueness with three different styles of Japanese cuisine-teppanyaki, yakitori, and sushi.
Cafe Inez is UNICO 20°87°’s own take on European café culture: A way to refuel, rejuvenate and recharge. Fresh juices, coffee, tea and baked goods are served in the morning while the menu transitions to sandwiches, paninis and meal-sized salads for lunch and dinner.
20.87 is the hotel’s casual beachside venue. The dining experience shifts throughout the day: from a bountifully diverse morning buffet with fresh juices, eggs to order, and house-baked Mexican pastries—to a classic grill in the evenings, serving up choice cuts of steak and fish.
Thoughtfully crafted cocktails and a selection top-shelf spirits can be found throughout UNICO, and the energy shifts as the evening darkens to night with live performances and late-night snacks.
When Prohibition took hold, the thirsty took off. Many of the best bartenders left for Cuba and the vibrant lure of its nightlife, triggering a Cuban cocktail renaissance. There was glamour, plenty of local rum, and world-class cigars. Palmera Lounge picks up where this intoxicating storyline leaves off: a new take on the classic, high energy Cuban clubs of the 40s with expertly crafted cocktails, bright, inviting design, boisterous live entertainment, and a cigar bar.
Bar Balam is UNICO 20°87°’s day through night cocktail bar, radiating warmth, while calling to mind the mystique of hidden-door cocktail dens of yore. Balam (which translates to jaguar in Mayan) is a powerful spirit in the ancient Mayan tradition a divine symbol of strength and a protector of fields. This sense of strength and boldness infuses the drinks which present an insightful Mexican take on classic cocktail tradition.
To be honest, we mostly used the app to order room service, but the possibilities are endless. We ended up having too much fun at Mexican Cooking Class, or at the pool bar to remember to bring our phones.
We recently headed back to Los Angeles for the weekend (where we lived before we moved to Austin) to see family, and all the changes going on in the city.
If you aren’t familiar with L.A., Culver City and Playa Vista are considered the Westside, which is a hotspot for locals and visitors. Not only is this area less than 10 minutes from the airport, but also just a few miles from the beach, shopping, and some of the best restaurants in L.A.
The hotel itself is near so many great food options, but you don’t actually have to even leave the hotel for a quick bite or drink, the lobby has a full bar, wine bar, and bistro called Share.
Share features small plate options, an enomatic Wine Serving System, with over 30 wines available by the glass. They also serve hand-crafted cocktails and a variety of beer selections, and a coffee barista service is available from 6:00 am – 2:00 pm.
After grabbing a much-needed glass of wine, we checked in at the front desk. We have a Hilton Honors Amex which we love to use, as we get 7x the points. If you stay at Hilton Hotels often, it is a must-have. We were also given lots of warm cookies (a Doubletree signature). The cookies are so good in fact, that multiple bakers have attempted to recreate the cookie and you can find copycat cookie recipe on blogs.
After settling in we received an amazing tray of goodies including cocktail mixes, fresh fruit, candy, and nuts to snack on. We also had a chance to enjoy the view from out room, and the gorgeous sunset.
As much as we loved the hotel as is, we were excited to hear that there are plans in the works for a $35 million renovation, which is set to begin in early 2019.
The hotel is located in such a great area, and one that is quickly transforming with the influx of technology companies like Facebook, Apple, and Google. An area nearby that was previously just a busy intersection, has been revamped as The Platform. Now, an epicenter for shopping at boutique shops, eating with local culinary talent, and pop-up shops run by creative entrepreneurs. We stopped there for breakfast at Blue Bottle Coffee, to walk around and check out the open-market style shops on the weekend.
The plans to renovate The DoubleTree LA – Westside, and eventually rebrand it, will give the destination new life inside and out. They are going to work on all public spaces, the exterior façade and landscaping, meeting space, all 375 guest room, and guest baths. Amenities such as the fitness center, pool, Share Bistro, Share Wine Lounge and more will also be upgraded.
We are excited to return when the renovations are complete to once again stay in the city we love so much!

We recently upgraded our living room with a LG 77″ OLED ThinQ TV. We wanted to enjoy a cinematic, home theater experience with this new, big screen. It allows us to immerse ourselves into everything we watch, and the larger screen brings us a more immersive experience. We love to watch 4K movies and TV shows in gorgeous Ultra HD level picture quality.
All these TVs have the Google Assistant built in, and this means you can control compatible smart home devices using just your voice. Finding shows to watch? It’s easy! Just say “play”. Create a center for your smart home, as this TV works with Amazon Alexa devices. We can conveniently control our TV with voice commands to change picture settings, change the volume of tv, search for shows and movies, control compatible connect home devices.
Each of the 8.3 million individually lit pixels of the LG OLED TV with AI ThinQ can brighten, dim or power off completely, achieving perfect black. Displaying a level of picture detail impossible with any other television technology, the perfect black canvas and expanded color gamut of the LG OLED TV with AI ThinQ intensify the color and vibrancy, which in turn, recreates the cinematic experience as intended by filmmakers.
Power & Picture
LG’s most powerful processor, α9 (Alpha9) providing superb picture quality, and is an award-winning processor. LG’s most powerful processor ever provides true-to-life images with incredibly rich colors, sharpness and depth to deliver the ultimate picture quality. We ended up with an amazing picture quality that seems lifelike and real.
As a result of the perfect black and intense color of the LG OLED display, movies, sports, games come to life. LG OLED TV with AI ThinQ uses the latest panels, with brighter, self-illuminating pixels that truly deliver superb picture quality. Fun fact: All existing OLED TVs come from LG, and we love the credibility knowing LG OLED TV is the leader in this category.
LG OLED TV with AI ThinQ® features comprehensive support of major high dynamic range formats, both with LG’s advanced tone-mapping technology that provides scene-by-scene optimization.
Our new TV has a head-turning design that elevates the room’s aesthetics. AKA: We look fancy!. Its sleek, incredibly slim form factor is ready for unobtrusive wall-mounting or tabletop placement.
Dolby Atmos transports you with moving audio. Crickets chirping all around, a monster roaring from behind, or a plane soaring overhead. Dolby Atmos content creates a more detailed sound experience that appears to come from everywhere for a wonderfully realistic, immersive experience that puts you inside the story.
Travelling is exciting, but when we become too busy discovering what the world has to offer, we can sometimes forget to look after our health. More importantly, we can miss exercising to keep the body happy and healthy. So with that in mind here are five activities to keep you for a while traveling.
Dance classes can be a great way of getting exercise especially as it’s also an opportunity to meet new people while traveling. Whether you consider yourself a dancer or not, there’s usually plenty of different class types that will appeal to a variety of people. Zumba is a great way of getting sweaty but not so much about getting to moves right. As long as you’re working hard and putting in the energy, you can do what you want. Adult dance classes are great if you want to craft your dance skills and you can learn anything from Latin to ballroom!
A simple activity and it will actually save you money. Opt for walking where possible while traveling. It’s a great way to save money, but it’s even better for your health to be outside, getting fresh air. Not only that but it means you can see more of the city or town you’ve traveled to, with walking, instead of standing on a bus or being underground or on a train.
Swimming is something that’s a bit more accessible when staying at in a hotel as many of them will have them available for guests. However, there will be plenty of local swimming pools nearby and don’t forget you can always take a free dip in the sea if you find yourself near the coast. Swimming is a flexible all-year-round activity that you can do, so whether you prefer the indoors or the outdoors, it’s a great way of keeping your fitness levels up and doesn’t feel like hard work at all.
Try App- Based Workouts
There many are occasions where most of the above aren’t available, or you don’t have the additional funds to do it. Therefore apps can be great to workout in the comfort of your own room or any outside space you see fit. With so many apps available, there’s one for everyone. Whether you enjoy yoga, weight training or dancing, most apps can offer you a personal workout session without the need to go anywhere.
Join A Sport
We all like to work out differently, and sports can be a great way of interacting with the locals and other travelers. Ask around to see if any sports team are offering training sessions that anyone can be involved in. Sports may vary where you travel, and you might even come across ones that you’ve never heard of or seen before, so it’s a great way of experiencing more of the culture.
Keeping fit is important while traveling so you can be at your healthiest for seeing the sights. Try out some of these activities on your next trip!
