June 23, 2017

Here it is! The ultimate (okay, probably not the ultimate, but a pretty great one) guide to finding the best murals in New York City. Some of these I’ve found by stumbling upon them, and others I’ve used some guides, like this one (Jennifer has way more murals on hers and includes the artists information so definitely check her’s out – she also has guides to Chicago and LA), to scope them out.

There’s just something about New York, isn’t there? I could go on and on about how much I love it there, but that would get old pretty fast.

So when I had the chance to check into Life Hotel for three nights, I was so excited. Checking Into Life Hotel Located on 31st between 5th and…

I was born and raised in New York. And while many “New Yorkers” will call me bridge and tunnel because I lived in Westchester, I still consider myself a local. I spent most of my life going back and forth into New York City with my family and I even considered moving there after I graduated college. But, I ultimately decided that city life was not for me. Now I try to head back there about twice a year to…

  When VISIT FLORIDA challenged me to travel to an “off the beaten path” location in Florida, I immediately thought of Vero Beach, a town where one of my friends has a home. I’ve been living in Florida for about two years now and I can’t believe it took me this long to get there. Vero still retains the charm to make you feel like a local. Needless to say, I fell in love with it. I think the tiny…

And I won’t lie, I thought that I would be partying the entire…

Travel Photographers And Their Favorite Travel Gear

May 26, 2017
