Weekend Road Trip to Providence and Newport, Rhode Island

Summer is the perfect time to take a road trip in the northeast for the warmer weather in the region and to escape muggy weather in areas like New York city and further south. I recently partnered with Toyota for a road trip in New England, and went up to Rhode Island since was already making plans to visit Providence for a food story I was working on and to check out different areas in the city. Since I would be driving now instead of using the train to visit (which would’ve been easy and comfortable to do leaving from the Tri-State area), decided to also stop by Newport for the beach, biking and mansion exploring.

Texas Road Trip: Photo Diary

Personal and professional travels have brought me to various parts of the U.S. and over international waters, but Texas wasn’t in my travel goals this year. Then when Best Western invited me on a road trip through The Lone Star State to experience a few of their properties and attend the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Convention, I thought there would be no better way to experience Texas and got onboard.
