A Boston native and Washington, DC, resident, Allee has been growing her bucket list since she began working as an Interactive Producer for TravelChannel.com. When not playing with her Frenchie named Pearl, Allee can be found inputting destinations into Kayak.com in the hopes of finding a deal on a flight to visit friends or family -- she’s lucky enough to have couches to crash on in Boston, New Orleans, Miami, New York and more. No matter how far she goes or what incredible trips she takes, her favorite place on Earth will always be a little island off the coast of Massachusetts: Nantucket.

Concerned about all the uber-lucky travelers headed to this year’s Olympics (ok, fine, maybe we’re just jealous), we checked in with our friends at weathertrends360 to see what all you spectators and athletes could expect from the notoriously-rainy city. According to the weathertrends360 meteorologists, London is expected to have the second-wettest weather in over 20 years during the opening weekend of the 2012 games. It might be a gloomy start weather-wise, but we’re predicting that a little rain won’t put a damper on the much-anticipated opening weekend. READ MORE

Last night, 4 of the most insane looping coasters in the country went head-to-head in a dizzying category called “Wrong Way Up”! With vertical loops as high as a 12-story building, all 4 of the competing coasters leave riders asking “which way is up??”

This May, viewers voted on whether Orlando’s Kraken, Pennsylvania’s Hydra the Revenge, Ohio’s Vortex or Tennessee’s Wild Eagle would be crowned the most insane Wrong Way Up coaster. So which coaster now holds the title of Lord of the Loops? READ MORE

If you’re anything like me and don’t have quite the athletic ability to make it to the Olympic Games as a competitor, then the closest you can get to the experience is as a cheering spectator in the stands. The good news is that being a spectator at the Olympics is an absolutely amazing experience, and the even better news is that it still isn’t too late to get tickets to events at the 2012 Olympic Games in London!

Olympic Tickets Still Available
