Have you been to Catalina Island? It's "26 miles across the sea" from coastal Los Angeles and looks a lot like the Italian Riviera. Here's an insider's guide to #catalinaisland  http://tinyurl.com/jpwne48 including the very best places to stay and eat and things to do. Enjoy!

#sandiego  is a big city with lots of big hotels that are great for business travelers, but for a relaxing getaway, I recommend one of the family-owned places to stay on the beach in #LaJolla  . I'd stay there, but I live only a few blocks away :) You can read about them here: http://tinyurl.com/gvgllt7

Planning on spending some time on a #SanDiego  beach this summer? If you're in La Jolla Shores, you might want to grab a meal in one of our wonderful neighborhood restaurants. Here's the scoop: http://www.authenticluxurytravel.net/2016/06/restaurants-in-la-jolla-shores-part-2.html

The +Saratoga Arms is a wonderful boutique hotel in Upstate New York. Lots of people know about the famous Saratoga Springs Racecourse, but I was surprised to learn about the wonderful performing arts programs that happen all summer in #SaratogaSprings  http://tinyurl.com/zn4vs2p

This boutique hotel in #SaratogaSprings  is gorgeous inside and out. Plus the breakfast (included in the tariff) is wonderful. There's info here:

#Hilo  is the biggest city on the #BigIsland  of #Hawaii  and home to plenty of "corporate" places to stay and eat. BUT I was determined to find  #authentictravel  places. Check out this gem.
Learn why the oceanfront Palms Cliff House Inn near Hilo is the best B&B on the Big Island of Hawaii. "Perfection," is how one guest described it.

Story
Tagline
I love writing about ways that travelers can connect with local people and their cultures while they are visiting an unfamiliar destination.This might be a foreign country or a nearby city. In my articles, I provide readers with information they can use to wander off the beaten path instead of following the well-worn trail of tourist sites.
Introduction
I write two travel blogs:  "Authentic Luxury Travel" and "La Jolla (San Diego) Travel Information," and I am the Travel Editor of Ranch & Coast, San Diego's ultimate lifestyle magazine.

I also offer trip planning services for my readers who want a creative, customized itinerary, but don't have the time or experience to do the research and organization. My years as a guidebook author and world traveler enable me to plan great trips for others.
