California or Florida: Which State has the Best Oranges?

tux-oranges.jpgIt is an argument that is as heated as taste great or less filling. We’re talking oranges, folks, those tasty pieces of fruit that will keep you from getting scurvy. As you probably know, both Florida and California grow a lot of oranges. But which ones taste the best?

The best way to find out is to visit both states, go to an orange tree, pick and orange, peel it and take a bite. With the airline deals that Hotwire has right now, you can take the California/Florida orange taste test, while also soaking up some sun while possibly enduring earthquakes and hurricanes.

Up to 40% off Minneapolis hotels for the Minnesota State Fair Aug 24 – Sept 4!

Up to 40% off Minneapolis hotels for the Minnesota State Fair Aug 24 – Sept 4!

We love Minnesota. Especially in the summertime, which is the three weeks of the year that it isn’t snowing.

No, that isn’t true. It’s probably four weeks.

Anyway, the thing that always let us kids snow that snow was on the way was the official end of summer the weekend before school started – the Minnesota State Fair.

We would go, wander the fair, and eat to our heart’s content, checking out the various activities and straining to hear what big-name band was playing in the grandstand.

In honor of this memory…or, possibly, the Fair (we like to think it’s in honor of us), Hotwire has located some great rooms for those that wish to live it up for the last days of summer. So head on out to the MN State Fair – or be hog-tied.
