The Travel Diaries: Escaping to Park City with Utopian Luxury Vacation Homes

Sunday, March 18, 2018

I grew up with parents who had very different opinions on how they wanted to spend vacations, thanks to their split differences we spent winters on the ski slopes and summers at the beach. While I grew up going to Colorado, I started skiing in Utah when I was at Sundance a few years ago and finally understood what the hype was about. I’ve been back a few times but this recent trip took my appreciation ...

Travel Guide: Why Connecticut is the new must do weekend escape

Monday, February 19, 2018

A few weeks ago I decided I needed an escape from the brutal, blistering cold of NYC’s concrete winter jungle. Sure I had made a seemingly attainable goal for 2018 to stay put in NYC for the month of January for a few reasons but I simply couldn’t bare it any longer. I craved a getaway. That’s my vice. Traveling, trips, exploring. Upstate seemed too far, the Northfork in January? No thank you, not this ...

I used ...

Weekend Escape: Newport, RI

Monday, August 28, 2017

A few summers ago I found myself up in Newport, RI seeking an escape from the city. It was far more relaxed and laid back than expected, a welcome change without a doubt. I haven’t been back since so when I was scratching at the walls to get out of hot, steamy NYC a trip up to cooler Newport was just what I needed. A calm, relaxing escape. The stay was only three days but ...

The End of Summer Escape: Hamptons

Friday, August 18, 2017

For New Yorker’s heading to the Hamptons on the weekends is the equivalent to going to the lake for my Southern friends. It’s the easy escape out of the city, the closest body of water and the beach (but definitely not the nicest) and will inevitably end with a beautiful sunset closing out a wonderful weekend with friends. I’ve done Hampton’s guides before but as new places have opened, old ones closed and a few ...
