Now, there is no doubt that The Strip is the biggest draw to Las Vegas. It’s where you can see incredible shows and musical performances, eat at the restaurants of some of the best chefs in the world, and partake in (just a little bit of) gambling.

A Foodie’s Guide to Savannah

Foodies love to travel, and the one thing they might love more than traveling is finding amazing places to eat while they are traveling. The good news?

There’s cities all over this country that are hidden foodie paradises, maybe they are known for incredible barbecue, amazing dim sum, mouth watering burgers, or the freshest seafood you could imagine.

It’s a wonder, when traveling around the United States that we all don’t become foodies, in search of the next great meal. They are certainly out there!

Today, we’re going to look at Savannah, Georgia. Now, there are a number of great reasons to visit this city beyond just the food, it’s beautiful antebellum architecture and leisurely way of life are some. But, the city is getting lots of attention lately because of the food options.

Zoos to See Pandas

Zoos to See Pandas

Let’s face it, is there an animal that people love to see more than giant pandas?

They are cute, cuddly, roll-y poll-y, and hilariously stubborn. We’re so obsessed with seeing them at our zoo’s that many of them have created live streaming “Pandacam’s” just so we can watch them 24 hours a day.

Of course, no one is complaining. After all, it’s virtually impossible to watch a young panda cub playing around and not have a big smile on your face after a few minutes.

Since giant pandas are an endangered species, their care is very closely watched by the US Fish and Wildlife Service while they are on loan from China. That means only a handful of the top notch zoos in the country actually get to house and grow giant pandas for people to visit.

So, you’re probably in the mood to spend a little while with some pandas now, right?

We don’t blame you. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the only zoos across the country where you can actually see giant pandas in the habitat as you would in the wild.

But get yourself ready for a cute attack, don’t say we didn’t warn you!
