For me, Google Maps is a must-have travel tool. I use it to navigate when I’m on the road and I use Street View – the 360-degree photo setting – to get a sneak peek of what my hotel really looks like before I book. Now, I’ve got an even more fun way to use it. Today Legoland […]

On a recent visit, I found out there’s also a charming, walkable downtown full of cute shops, an awesome slice of Hollywood history meets hacienda, a museum dedicated to rocking out (debuting the first ever MOOG exhibit on Aug. 29) and a thriving, dare-I-say urban, theater scene.
