Las Vegas, NV

My summer travels started back in July when I went to Las Vegas. I was there for a few days and tried out one new restaurant at The Wynn called Allegro, but pretty much stuck to my tried and true favorites. I have a more comprehensive blog post from a few years back about some of the great vegan spots in Vegas. My two favorite restaurants in Vegas are Wazuzu at The Wynn (every restaurant in The Wynn has a vegan menu/options), and Vegenation which is an all vegan restaurant.

Des Moines, IA, Omaha, NE, & A Few Other Mid West Spots

In July, I visited my boyfriend Brandon on tour for a week. First stop was one of my favorite cities, Des Moines. I have a video showcasing some of my favorite Des Moines spots as well as a comprehensive blog post about all the delicious vegan food there. I was able to meet up with my online friend who is now my real life friend Lindsey aka as Mad Girl’s Vintage for a fun day of antiquing!

While in Omaha I visited an all vegan restaurant called Modern Love. It was delicious, even Brandon’s non vegan parents loved it! We shared a few appetizers, the brussels sprouts and fired mozzarella (pictured below) were my favorites! Brandon and I also visited a cute tiki bar called Laka Lono Rum Club.

Portland, OR and Seattle, WA

My Portland/Seattle trip was probably one of my favorites of the whole summer. The amount of delicious things I ate and great vintage stores I visited was unreal! Homegrown Smoker in Portland was probably a highlight of the trip, but watch my video to see all the other amazing places I visited!

Palm Springs, CA

My final trip of the summer was Palm Springs for my mom’s birthday. We went thrifting, stayed at The Saguaro (which had a few vegan options on their pool menu), and went to a Tiki Bar called The Reef Palm Springs. We were there for a very short amount of time so I can’t wait to check out more of their vegan options next time I’m in town!
