Go away with ... Gregg Daniel

“My wife and I have taken frequent road trips in order to ensure our sanity during this tumultuous time,” said actor Gregg Daniel (“True Blood,” “Insecure,” “For Life”). “In all our trips, we wore masks and maintained social distancing. There are several places heading due north we love visiting, especially the coastal communities – Ventura, Ojai, Summerland, Montecito and Santa Barbara.

Fans may stay in touch with the actor on Twitter (https://twitter.com/RealGreggDaniel), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ActorGreggDaniel) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/officialgreggdaniel/).
