East Coast Summer Vacation – Visiting New York, New Jersey, Washington DC & Virginia

The Lake in Central Park

I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for the past couple of years. Recently, I’ve decided that amidst all the hustle & bustle of life & the life situations we’re faced with, we deserve some “me” time. As parents, we often feel guilty if we somehow think of having fun when there’s just so much work to do. But seeing that my kids are now old enough to travel without needing too much accoutrement on the trip, I’ve immediately booked our first family vacation where we are not traveling to attend a convention. After seeing a promo of Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards program, I wanted to try it! The Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards program states that if I spend $2000 on my card on the first 3 months upon receiving my Rapid Rewards card, then I get 50,000 points that qualifies me for 2 free roundtrip tickets from Southwest Airlines. You can’t beat that! Luckily, I was approved.

Since we are also members of Hilton Honors program, we can stay at any Hilton hotels and we chose Hampton Inn. One thing I like about staying in Hampton Inn is that they offer free breakfast which is a huge plus when you have children. It’s a huge stress-reliever when you are traveling since if you’ve had brunch before leaving your hotel, you can go straight & travel to anywhere you want. We prefer our breakfast at the hotel since it’s more convenient to have a sit-down breakfast.

I’ve been to several buffet restaurants already in Los Angeles such as King Buffet, New Town Buffet and Vegas Seafood Buffet and Hokkaido Seafood Buffet. So far, the top three on my list would be King Buffet, New Town Buffet and Vegas Seafood Buffet. Since I am a fan of Chinese & Japanese food, their selection is enough to satisfy my hunger cravings. I am rating them according to price, location & ambiance. King Buffet is in the Hollywood area & accessible even to people without cars. And for the price, nothing beats The King! Soon, there will be a Target store beside it so I imagine there will be more people eating there & they might need to expand.

The address of these buffet restaurants are as follows:

KING BUFFET  1375 N Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027 Tel: (323) 468-9398

NEW TOWN BUFFET 1100 N. San Fernando Blvd Burbank, CA 91504 Tel: (818) 238-9398 Web: www.newtownsuperbuffet.com

VEGAS SEAFOOD BUFFET 7021 Hollywood Blvd Unit 110 Los Angeles, CA 90028 Tel: (323) 462-4300 Web: www.vbuffet.com
