It’s getting to be that time of year where the itch to travel starts setting in. The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and our Pinterest travel boards are rapidly growing. Need some travel inspo of your own? Here are some places to add to your travel hit list, according to our editors.

Desert Road Trip

Alyssa Clough, Associate Social Media Editor

“I have this road trip dreamed up where I start in Austin before moving onto Marfa, Texas, the White Sands in New Mexico, the Grand Canyon, and then finish at the Lower Antelope Canyon, which is absolutely stunning. There are so many cool destinations to visit outside the U.S., but lately I’ve been drawn to exploring more of the states, cities, and natural wonders located in our own country!”

Hvar, Croatia

Rachel Besser

“A lot of my travel is up in the air this year, but one place I know I’m headed to (finally) is Croatia. I’ve been wanting to hit up the Dalmatian coast for a long time, as it’s often compared to the French Riviera, except more chill.”

Cartagena, Colombia

Anna Kocharian, Digital Editor

“I’ve been dying to explore South America, and Cartagena is at the top of my list. It’s the most vividly colorful spot!”


Kristin Limoges

“I was just there last year in May and I’m already dying to go back immediately. Not only is it the most incredibly lush and exotic vacation spot, it’s a whole mindset and way of life – everyone visiting and living there is so chill and relaxed. It’s basically heaven.”

Zion National Park, Utah

Elana Delasos

“After hiking the Andes in Argentina last year, I realized I actually love outdoor adventure. So, for my first big trip in 2017, I’m booking it to Utah to hike through Zion National Park. It hadn’t quite dawned on me that the U.S. has so many amazing landscapes and after hearing about Zion, I made it a priority to see that first. Can’t wait to experience it! I’ve heard pictures just don’t do it justice.”

Oxford, England

Ariana Milligan, Digital Marketing Coordinator

“I’m going to Oxford in the UK. It’s such an inspiring city — whether you’re sitting in a repurposed Victorian Glasshouse for brunch, grabbing drinks in a converted church, or reading a book from the Albion Beatnik Bookstore. It’s a city filled with local gems and SO many books!”

Rhodes, Greece

Tracy Cho, Director of Marketing, Growth and Analytics

“I’ve never been to Greece so I started to do some research on Instagram and found this hotel in Rhodes, Greece. Poolside living? Yes, please. Great intersection of old city, modern. Olive and citrus groves? Yes, again. Hike Epta Piges/the Seven Springs. Last but not least, a hotel that has yoga overlooking the ocean is a no brainer.”

Venice, Italy

Emily Hamilton

“I am going to Venice at the end of April with my mom and I am so excited, because well.. it’s Venice. I have never been before and bonus points because my mom is an art guru and will indulge me in church wanderings.”

Napa, California

Natasha Wolff

“I can’t wait to visit the Carneros Resort and Spa this November in Napa during Harvest season. I’ll be traveling out West for a friend’s wedding and my husband and I will make it a longer trip in Wine Country. The Carneros Resort and Spa is a gorgeous property that features these well-appointed cottages, two pools and a luxurious spa. It will be a splurge but it’s worth it!”

Cross-Country Road Trip

Alex Redgrave, Executive Editor

“I’m headed on a cross-country road trip from L.A. to NY this May. Lots of camping in state parks, lots of pit-stops like the Integratron and Pioneer Town.”
