48 Hours in Atlanta

It was a city I didn't know much about -- but when my mom was traveling for business, I took advantage of a free hotel room and set out to spend 48 hours in Atlanta. The city surprised me with all it had to offer - from some of the best ribs I've tasted to one…

72 Hours in… New Orleans

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the U.S., and last month marked my 4th visit there. I had been three times during college: twice to volunteer at an animal shelter that had been damaged (and overwhelmed with stray pups) following Hurricane Katrina, and once before departing for a spring break cruise. I was particularly…

48 Hours in Tulum, Mexico

Tulum: it’s a destination frequented by fashion editors, celebrities, the mega rich and… beach camping hippies. Known for yoga retreats, ubiquitous juice bars and trendy restaurants, Tulum was, at least for me, a much preferred alternative to nearby Cancun. It's easy: airlines like JetBlue, Delta, American and Aeromexico all offer direct flights from major U.S.…

Weekend Getaway: San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio definitely shares some hipster vibes with nearby Austin, but the south-central Texas city known for the Alamo and its River Walk has its own unique personality that's steeped in history, a craft cocktail culture and a whole lotta delicious Mexican food. With a highly walkable (or bikeable!) downtown area, it's easy to hit…

New Jersey Road Trip Stop: Frenchtown

Frenchtown, New Jersey is a picturesque town that makes for a great stop on road trips between NYC/NJ and  parts of Pennsylvania. Its name comes from the many french families that followed Paul Henri Mallet-Prevost, a Swiss refugee from the French Revolution, who moved there in 1794. photo: flickr4jazz/Flickr Located on the Delaware River, Frenchtown…
