Get away to Dallas–Fort Worth

Stereotypes cling to Dallas and Fort Worth more tenaciously than pits to early-season peaches. Dallas, according to popular thought, exists in a perpetual purgatory of big-haired women and J.R. Ewing–like men who sport Stetsons and call everyone “darlin’.”

Get away to Knoxville

It’s been more than thirty years since Knoxville hosted the World’s Fair, and there’s only been one such expo in the United States since (New Orleans in 1984). Yet after its fifteen minutes of international fame, “Knoxpatch” settled back into its easygoing, unpretentious ways.

Get away to Washington, D.C.

While driving through downtown Greenville, South Carolina, after a recent visit to my parents’ house nearby, my husband—who has called New York and L.A. home —turned...

Dine in Charleston, SC

Through wild swings of fortune, Charleston has always reveled in its Southern uniqueness—in the fertile lands around its peninsula, in the idiosyncratic beauty of its architecture, and certainly in the foods produced with the local bounty.

Dine in New Orleans, LA

It took only one average dinner at a rather expensive cottage bistro that opened in the Crescent City last year to remind me: New Orleans isn’t New York, where restaurants open at such a fevered pace that serious eaters race between the latest luminaries for bragging rights.
