Muir Beach & Muir Beach Overlook, CA

If you’re on the West Coast (whether you’re visiting or you live there), I would recommend a day trip of driving along the coast. Now, this particular activity may not be the cheapest, especially if you’re a traveler who would need to rent a car, but there are ways to try and offset the cost of this. And, if you are a local or a traveler who brought their car, this should be a bit easier.

Free & Entertaining Colosseum Tours

Just because you would like to be a traveler who does less touristy things does not mean that you have to miss out on some of the most iconic attractions in the world.
