Romancing 24 hours in Austin, Texas

Austin, Texas, is a veritable playground for eating, drinking and just having fun. If you have 24 hours with your partner, here's how to make the most of your visit-

Morning

Start with breakfast at Veracruz All Natural, a taco truck on the east side of town. Go for the authentic migas taco: scrambled eggs with tortilla chips, tomatoes, onion, jalapeño and cheese in a house-made corn tortilla. And don't miss the aguas frescas — drinks that blend fruits like watermelon and mango with sugar and water. Next head over to Wright Bros. Brew & Brew, a coffee shop that's great for people watching.

 Lunch

By lunchtime you'll have worked up a Texas-size appetite. Skip the epic lines at places like Franklin Barbecue and head to Freedmen's in the West Campus neighborhood for succulent brisket, ribs and sausage. Don't forget sides like the horseradish potato salad, and save room for the smoked banana pudding for dessert. A few blocks over to South First Street, another hot spot for vintage shopping and cool restaurants and stores. Be sure to check out New BROhemia for killer men's and unisex vintage clothes and Métier Cook's Supply for the finest kitchenware 

Dinner

Next door to Métier, chefs Todd Duplechan and Jessica Maher run Lenoir, a restaurant know for its creative blend of dishes with influences from India, Southeast Asia and the southern United States. The refurbished house with shabby chic décor and a romantic backyard patio are pretty sweet.

 The Oregon Coast, Oregon

For one of the most awe-inspiring road trips in America, follow U.S. Route 101 and the western edge of the continent from north to south. Begin at the northern outpost of Astoria, the richly historic city where the Columbia River flows into the Pacific. At Cannon Beach, northern Oregon’s most beautiful seaside village, sandy beaches stretch for miles, interrupted by massive basalt sea stacks such as the iconic 235-foot Haystack Rock. Route 101 stays close to the coast, traversing river valleys and climbing up over the flanks of mountains that reach down to the Pacific. The view from Neahkahnie Mountain, where the road edges around 700-foot cliffs that drop into the surging Pacific, is of wide-open seascape—on a clear day, you can see for 50 miles.

Drive off into the sunset, as Route 101’s final stretch in Oregon keeps getting more and more beautiful. Just six miles above the California border, Brookings basks in Oregon’s ‘banana belt’: mild winter temperatures enable palm trees to grow in this pleasant harbour city, and wild azaleas bloom every year in late May. But this is also home to the northernmost range of the West’s giant coast redwoods, more commonly associated with northern California.

 Dining, Shopping and More in Monroe, Louisiana

Small-Town Shopping Charm

If you like antiques, you will love Antique Alley in the Cotton Port historic district of West Monroe.

Most of these diverse shops are open Tuesday through Saturday and are located on Trenton Street, so it’s perfectly walk able, too.

Wine and Cuisine

One will be blown away by Restaurant Cotton. Chef Cory Bahr, winner of the television show “Chopped” on Food Network, really does elevate Southern cooking at this trendy spot which also features a great bar. Here you can have an inventive artisanal drinks and Southern favorites with a twist, like the smoked Old Fashioned. The food is just WOW!! The pimento cheese beignets were the definition of comfort food, the shrimp so fresh and the grits delightfully creamy, and the salads were all works of art.The next stop could be the beautiful Landry Vineyards. What wonderful wine Louisiana has to offer! Here you can enjoy the finest wine with some outdoor concerts in the evening.

Nature Time

And if you’re looking to round off your vacation with a little time in the bayou, Monroe and West Monroe has a lot to offer with its beautiful interpretive center, where adults will love taking a stroll on the tranquil boardwalk. You can also rent canoes and fish here.If you can’t decide what you want to do for your next vacation – shop or dine, explore nature or museums – come to Monroe and West Monroe where you don’t have to choose and can do it all.
