The stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas! As a San Antonio native I have spent many, many hours stargazing at some pretty amazing spots throughout this state. Now I want to pay that forward and share some of my favorite places to go stargazing in San Antonio. This is Texas though, so be ready to drive. Ya’ll know how that goes, if you’ve lived very long in the Lone Star State. Start planning your stargazing road trip now.

More and more adults are buying Lego sets for themselves and having an awesome time building them. Feeling left out? We’ve got you (or your parents) covered.
Lego has made some truly fantastic sets in recent years, complex sets that contain thousands of pieces. These are the real must-haves for any adult Lego fan.
It was a quiet night in San Antonio when I saw my first UFO. I’ve been hooked ever since, spending my nights alone looking up at the night sky. But whether you’re tracking flying saucers on the down low like me or instagramming every satellite you see, you’ll need a great set of UFO spotting night-vision goggles. We’ve got you covered. I’ve been testing night-vision googles day and night (well OK just at night) and now I’m ready to tell you what the best ones were like.
Stargazing is something I love to do with my two kids and when it comes to the best ways to lay and look up at the skies, I’m an expert. So here I am to tell you which tent is the best one for laying on your back and looking up at the stars.
From mesh roof tents to all other kinds of tents, my kids and I have tried them all. Over the last few weeks of summer, my trio and I narrowed it down and tried out the three specific tents we thought were the best. This is how those tents matched up to me and my kids. Look up and share the wonder we’ve seen.
One of the biggest problems for the space-brained adult manchild has to be that sometimes you will see something you absolutely love, but unfortunately it’s only made for children. Thankfully, ThinkGeek has taken this into account and is now releasing that super-awesome inflatable Star Trek Captain’s Chair in a handy adult size. Trekkies rejoice!
As a kid, The Blob scared the hell out of me like few other films. Side note: it also may have been the first Steve McQueen movie I ever saw. Hell, I even adore the 1988 remake, it’s awesome. Back in January, it was announced that Simon West, the man behind Con-Air (another movie I love dearly), is going to give the franchise another facelift. He recently spoke about the project, and part of his plan includes giving the amorphous, gelatinous glob a true Hollywood makeover, which apparently includes a new backstory.
