Can we all agree on something? We travel for food first and foremost. Sure, the sites, resorts, beaches, and people are just as amazing but, if you’re like me, you travel to taste a place. I mean, that’s why you’re here on Salt & Wind, right? Because, like us, you’re always in search of the best meal a place has to offer and how to recreate it back home.
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. It's well worth the visit and here is where to eat, stay, and visit on a trip to the Azores.

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).

One of my all-time favorite road trips here in California? Taking a long weekend to drive up Highway 1 from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Here's my advice for how to do it, where to go, and what to eat.
