Charming, quaint, delightful: these are the words that come to mind when you find yourself describing the historic, little city of Charleston, South Carolina. We already love Charleston, whether just for 24 hours, a girls' getaway, or a weekend away, but here are 7 ways we fell in love with the city even more on our latest trip.
Healdsburg isn't jokingly known to insiders as "Beverly Healdsburg" for nothing. Equal parts rustic and chic, brimming with fabulous restaurants, biodynamic vineyards, and a town square like Mayberry; it’s not hard to find the appeal. Here are our picks for what to do in Healdsburg:
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.
Switzerland is as sweet as its chocolate—a total charmer. Crisscrossing the country, from the ice blue lakes and jagged mountains to cows everywhere, the place can seem Photoshopped. What I didn’t know? Zurich is equally amazing.
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.
When it comes to beaches, Italy’s got a lot of options, but I feel most at home in the Tuscan beach town of Forte Dei Marmi. This beach town is less than an hour from Florence but feels like another world free of tourists and full of locals.
If you're planning a trip to Morocco, people will tell you to spend a majority of your time between Marrakech and Casablanca. But, we'd recommend a different plan. Instead? Instead, we'd suggest (er, insist) you spend some time wandering off the beaten path.
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).
