Music lovers flock to Austin for its sprawling festivals and barbecue enthusiasts go to compare and contrast the celebrated smoked meats of the region. In a city where the sun is usually shining and al fresco dining is par for the course, it’s easy to have a good time. But explore like a local to experience the details that truly define the quirky capital of Texas.
Baja California has been Mexico’s best-kept secret but is getting its moment in the sun, and we here at Salt & Wind couldn’t be more on board. If we had it our way, this would be our ultimate Baja itinerary, and we want to share it with you because secrets are more fun when shared.
Before you think, “Iceland, that’s far!!” hear us out: a three day weekend in Iceland is not only achievable, but 100% worth it. Here's how to get in time at the Blue Lagoon, lots of skyr cake, and great beer, all in 72 hours.
All due respect to Los Angeles’s San Gabriel Valley, Seattle’s White Center, and the Twin Cities’ Frogtown, but Richmond, British Columbia might just have the most diverse collection of Asian food in North America.

And if that distance just so happens to be between the two westernmost provinces in Canada, we’d not only suggest it, we’d encourage it. Because when a country has this much to offer, you’d be seriously missing out by flying.
We hate to see summer end. This year, instead of giving in, we’re on a mission to make it last.We’ve got our sights set on Bermuda because that island is an ideal weekend getaway. And, seeing as it’s less than a two-hour flight from the East Coast, Bermuda is the kind of place you can escape to at a moment’s notice.
Vermont is a place people (mostly) visit for two reasons: Fall foliage or skiing. But one of my favorite times to visit the Green Mountain State is summer. And, during the summer, Mad River Valley does local food so well, we think it warrants a whole weekend.
Krakow may not the first city on your European bucket list, but we think you might want to rethink that. Krakow has gorgeous architecture, a fascinating history, a chill vibe, kind people, and lots of fresh, cheap, interesting food. And it's small enough that in just a few days you can really get to know this gem of a city.
