What would you do with that time? *(despite the fact that 'Portland, OR, USA' is used as *the* example in the Travel Location prompt...if I have just somehow missed earlier questions, please let me know!!!!)

Tell me about Brooklyn

Thanks to everyone who replied to my last question, where I was feeling a bit "meh" about my entire trip to New York City. I'm feeling more excited about it now and I've done more planning, so yay! I'm back looking for ideas! I'm staying in Brooklyn (East Williamsburg) during my trip and I *think* I want to spend the first two days of my trip (July 30&31) in Brooklyn and take it easy. What should I not miss during these two days? [more inside]

A case of vacation buyers remorse

About a month ago I booked a solo 2 week vacation to New York City during the first two weeks of August and for the past few weeks I really haven't been excited about it.

4th of July: San Francisco Edition

I booked a room at the Grand Hyatt in SF for the 4th of July weekend. I live in San Jose area, so I am somewhat familiar with San Francisco. What are some off the beaten path places to visit or see? Food/bars? Night life? Are there fireworks that weekend or just on the 4th? We have plans to visit Hot Italian in Emeryville, but otherwise we are just looking to enjoy the city instead of our typical single objective-oriented travel.
