Is there anything in life better than a road trip with the right partner in the passenger seat, a great playlist on the sound system, and wide-open days ahead of you? I can’t think of much. Okay, maybe throw having AAA on that list too. ‘Cause flat tires aren’t exactly the things great travel memories are made of, and I’ve had quite a few in my four-wheel journeys around the US. But road trips are dreamy — I think we can all agree on that, no?
The Luxury Collection and One Kings Lane have put together a set of drool-worthy videos that will make you want to grab your car keys, grab two friends, and hit the open road this instant. As I’m currently in the midst of planning a mini-weekend road trip with some girlfriends this spring (Palm Springs, here we come!) this series hit all the right notes.
This edition features three destinations over three days, experienced by three travel “tastemakers.” In Vermont, images of fall leaves sprinkle around the Equinox Hotel and the tastemakers go fly fishing. In Boston, The Liberty Hotel is the base for antiquing, bike riding, and fine dining around the city. In New York, The Chatwal Hotel is a respite after long day of theatre-going, strolling through Central Park, and sipping wine. As an East Coast girl myself I can’t help but feel a little pride in what a beautiful part of the world this is.
Even if a road trip isn’t in your near future, you can still get a taste of this trip sent directly to your door. One of you will win a One Kings Lane Aegean Fig scented soy wax candle, a Luxury Collection Hotel Stories coffee table book and a Luxury Collection Cocktail Collection recipe book featuring global-inspired cocktails, worth a total of $125. As someone who loves to daydream about travel, I would love to light this candle, stir up an indulgent cocktail, and spend a few hours flipping through a book filled with a lifetime of beautiful hotels and destinations.
