What’s My Favorite Thing About Planning a Vacation? THE FOOD!


Who else plans their vacation based on how many of their favorite eateries they can visit during the trip?? No one? Only me?

If you know me, you know that although I’m not the most adventurous with food, I LOVE a good meal. I love trying out new restaurants whenever I can- anything from fancy spots to popular fast food joints.

When I plan a trip, the first thing I do is think about what places are in the area and make a list of the ones I’d like to try and fit into my itinerary. This summer, I planned my annual trip to South Beach for my birthday. My friends made fun of me because two weeks before our trip, I had a list of about 5 places I had to visit for some newly discovered grub. I feel like a great meal can become such a lasting memory and add to the experience of a trip. Sometimes, it’s the best thing I remember about a particular vacation.

Here a few of my favorites:

MIAMI: The delicious Cuban food at my favorite restaurant Havana 1957.
