My 3 Favorite Summer Escapes

One of the best things about summer is the sense of freedom the sun brings. For me, summer weekends are for exploring and discovering! I always pack a journal, camera, and make a road trip mix filled with classics (think Steppenwolf) and new music (I love Fun!).

Here are a few of my favorite unexpected weekend getaways across the country to explore. Be carefree and get lost this summer... it's a chance to write a new page in the book of your life.

1. Watch Hill, RI
2. Sedona, AZ
3. Monterey/Big Sur/Carmel, CA
