Slurp N' Sip: A Bay Area Oyster Crawl

Coastal breezes, salty air and crisp oysters. You might think these nautical vibe only exist in Maine, but just 30 miles north of San Francisco the air is cool and there are big bowls of creamy clam chowder that feel more East than West. Close enough for a day trip, but far enough that it feels like an escape, Tomales Bay is a weekend getaway favorite for Bay Area locals.

Weekend Away: Head to Healdsburg While It's More Martha Than Wintour

Healdsburg isn't jokingly known to insiders as "Beverly Healdsburg" for nothing. Equal parts rustic and chic, the town of has risen quickly, despite the looming shadow of Napa. But like most-younger children, Healdsburg is scrappier and savvier; with less to prove and more to gain. Brimming with fabulous restaurants, biodynamic vineyards, and a town square like Mayberry; it’s not hard to find the appeal.

What To Eat In Zurich (And Where To Eat It)!

Zurich totally surprised me (in a great way) when it came to food. Obviously, I expected lots of cheeses, chocolate, and wine but I didn’t really think much beyond that. After almost a week in this gorgeous city by the lake, I had no problem determining my favorite foods. These are foods you have to try when you visit Zurich.

The Portuguese Islands You've Likely Never Heard Of

The Azores may just be Portugal’s best-kept secret. So secret in fact, that you can’t even spot it on Google maps unless you’re seriously zoomed in. Two hours west of mainland Portugal, scattered amidst the Atlantic Ocean, sits a cluster of nine volcanic islands, each with their own charm, scenery, and local activities.

Your Guide To Uncovering Cartagena

Colombia was off limits. As in totally off limits. Growing up in South Florida in the 90s, well, to put it lightly, Colombia had a bad reputation. I never dreamed of traveling there, but times have changed and with it, along with some encouragement from close friends, I took a chance on Cartegna, Colombia.

The Dawn of Copenhagen's Street Food Scene

Danes themselves are quick to admit that, until just a few years back, Copenhagen didn’t really have much of a street food scene. But these days, you'd have no idea as there's everything from halls to stalls to street vendors across the City of Bikes. On our recent visit to the city of bicycles, smørrebrød and minimalist cool, we searched out another new Nordic scene: Copenhagen’s street food fare.

The Road Trip That's Shorter Than Your Commute: Day Trip To Boulder

Living in Manhattan for almost a decade, I was used to having everything at my fingertips. Well, everything except nature. But after relocating to Denver, getting outdoors is my norm, with one my favorites being the road trip to Boulder. And, as the weather thaws, Boulder is a pretty perfect day trip because it has something for everyone — hiking or biking; shopping; and lots of great dining. I tend to do all three: head on a hike, stock up on produce at the Farmers Market, and finish the afternoon with a bite (or two).

A Perfect Day Of Eating In Tel Aviv

I swear there’s something about the food in Israel. It's as if the tomatoes are sweeter, eggplant meatier, and watermelons crisper. Maybe it’s the sunshine, maybe it’s the soil, or maybe the history, but the bottom line is that the food is good. I travel to Israel on the regular to visit family and as soon as we land in Tel Aviv, our tastebuds are ready to explore.
