The Local View

The Local View is a series of articles from independent travel writers we know and respect. This is their opportunity to turn the lens towards the places they know the best and sound off on the undiscovered secrets of their hometowns. The places closest to us are the ones that are most often-overlooked, so they can dig deeper and share their insights.

This is a chance to get information beyond the guidebook. The Local View shares where a local would go, where they would eat and what they would do if they were showing their home to a visitor. Examples include exploring the university town of Leuven, Belgium on a quiet weekday or going deeper at La Jolla Cove in California. This is where to find information on the amazing local spots that haven’t been discovered or are under appreciated.
