Hello From Louisville!

Thanks to all those of you who offered Plan My Trip suggestions for my visit to Louisville last weekend. I had a great time in River City, in part because I got to celebrate the wedding of my two friends (my seventh and final wedding this year — phew!) and in part because I was…

Plan My Trip: Louisville

I’m heading to Kentucky for the first time this coming weekend, and will be exploring the lovely city of Louisville. I’m already looking forward to checking out NuLu, Butchertown, and Frankfort Avenue, and will most likely find myself wandering along the Urban Bourbon Trail. The new KFC Yum! Foods athletic center will be opening downtown…

The latest in the ongoing series in which the editors of Traveler Magazine take travel suggestions from readers… Read more reader suggested itineraries here. This week, I’m taking my history-teacher boyfriend on a road trip around Kansas City, from Abilene, Kansas, to Independence, Missouri, and everything in between (for all you history buffs out there,…

Charleston Charms

Thanks to all those of you who offered up suggestions for my Labor Day trip down to Charleston, South Carolina. Here are some of the highlights from my visit: Cruising through Charleston with the dog in the front seat. That’s me in the mirror, taking the picture. There is perhaps no better way to see…

Plan My Trip: Charleston

Ok gang, it’s time again for another round of Plan My Trip. I’m doing the drive down to Charleston, South Carolina this weekend to see family, and it’s my first time visiting the fine city. Now, I have to admit I’ve been briefed by Andrew Nelson, our contributing writer, who wrote the Insider’s Charleston piece…

Plan My Trip: Victoria, B.C.

In just a few weeks I’m heading off to Victoria, B.C. for a much-needed weekend of R&R. It’s been over 10 years since I’ve been to Vancouver Island, and well over 15 since I’ve toured the elegant Butchart Gardens and ever-popular Royal British Columbia Museum. With hardly 36 hours in the city, I want to…

The allure of discount airfare, coupled with a reunion with high school friends, means I’m heading out this weekend on a jaunt to Puerto Rico, and I’m of course ready and willing to hear your tips. I’m looking forward to visiting the UNESCO site of Old San Juan, but am sure that you have suggestions…

Friend of IT Ally Burguieres is taking a road trip in Ireland this week, just as the country gears up for St. Patrick’s Day. She’s got a car, and wants to know where to go. In Traveler’s October issue, John Rosenthal asked the question, “Do You Really Want to Drive?” about the risks of driving…

Late this Sunday night, I’m going to leave for a week to travel – and blog – through Israel. It’s my first time visiting both the country and the region, so while I’m eagerly anticipating my arrival, I’m also cramming a bit for my stay. So I thought I’d open things up to the blogosphere.…

Plan My Trip: New Orleans

Mardi Gras is here! Okay well not exactly, but earlier this week, the city residents celebrated Twelfth Night, the celebration of the Epiphany and the Three Kings’ arrival, which is the day that officially kicks off the Carnival season. So I’m heading down to New Orleans tonight to do some reporting on how best to…

Ok readers, here comes a challenge. We at Traveler make a living telling people where to go and what to do when visiting new places. But we also know that the real essence of great travel is having knowledgeable locals tell you where to go. So I’m turning the tables a bit and asking you,…
