- Sexy, stylish honeymoon suites – AmyS_travel recently posted this over on the Bing Travel Blog:
I’m getting married in a few months, and while I’m certainly looking forward to my honeymoon, I must admit that the words “honeymoon suite” did not at first conjure up an appealing mental image. In my mind’s eye, a honeymoon suite was a lavish affair, true — but one oozing with frothy tulle, all manner of ruffles and lots and lots of white. Shudder.

- San Francisco: 5 best June values – JD Rinne recently posted this on This Just In… Newsweek's Travel Blog:
Few people know about the Tenderloin National Forest, an urban garden in Cohen Alley filled with murals, sculptures, and sparse but beautiful landscaping. Created and run by the Luggage Store art gallery, which is worth a visit in itself, the forest is both a work of art and a green oasis for city dwellers. It's open erratically—basically whenever the gardeners are working—but stop by on the 15 of every month, when the public is invited for an open house. June 15, noon-5 p.m., Cohen Alley, off Ellis Street between Leavenworth and Hyde Streets.
