Boston offers visitors a well-preserved peak into the nation’s beginnings on a journey along the Freedom Trail – a pathway through the city that highlights historic landmarks like Paul Revere’s house.

Lauren Elizondo

Autumn foliage, architectural decay, that feeling you get in your stomach when you speed over a dip in the road – these are just a few of Lauren Elizondo’s favorite things she’s had the chance to experience while traveling. When Lauren’s not writing about travel, she’s exploring … or at least daydreaming about her next journey. So far, she’s made some of her fondest memories on Lake Superior’s inspirational North Shore and while roadtripping through the Colorado Rockies.

Lauren’s Favorite Travel Tip: Don’t leave on your vacation without packing earplugs or a comfortable eye-mask – you’ll be so happy you did when you need them!
