Sweet Summertime Reads | Oh, the Places We Would Go (in NY + TX)…

Welcome back for this week’s Sweet Summertime Reads post! This week we’re discussing road trips. Yesterday Ginger shared her desire to road trip along the California Pacific Coast Highway. (Sidenote: Five years ago, Magan called San Diego home and Ginger’s post made her extremely nostalgic. Friends, if you ever have the chance to drive with […]

emery lord - I’ve been in NYC once a season for the past year…and I will take bitter cold over a city summer ANY DAY. I’m planning my first-ever trip to Austin in the fall. Can’t wait for that one!

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Estelle: Next time I go to NYC, take me to these places! It was recommended to me on the day before I left NYC to go to the High Line, but I didn’t want to go by myself since I didn’t understand the directions that were given to me but your picture is so neat! Honestly I’d go anywhere you’d take me. You’re a FANTASTIC host for your city and I love the way your love for it makes me love it. MEANS A LOT. xo Magan: Here’s a dorky secret. For about three or four years, I had a subscription to Southern Living magazine (it just ended, sad face) and they ALWAYS feature Texas, and most of the time it seems like they have fantastic Austin nightlife or places to visit in it. And I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go there. ALWAYS. Music, sights, food, all of that. One day, and you can be my tour guide. Seriously. I love this post.

Alexa Y. - Girls, this is a WONDERFUL post! I really, really want to go to all the places Magan mentioned in Austin (and seriously, I may just have to make it happen in the future). They look absolutely GORGEOUS, and that BBQ place sounds delicious indeed! As for NY, I’ve been to Serendipity multiple times and LOVED it, and the same goes for the High Line which is especially gorgeous when the sun sets! I have, however, not been to Coney Island and I really think that ought to be remedied…

Sarah B. - SALT LICK! YES! So, so, so good & totally worth the drive out of town for the original!

Amanda @ Hell-Bent to Read - Magan, I didn’t realize you lived in Austin! I have only been once (I live in Dallas), and I loved it, but I want to make it a thing to go down a couple times a year. Also, do you plan on going to the Austin Teen Book Festival in September?

Ah, Estelle. I have been to New York once, and it was only for a day. How sad! I really want to go back and spend a week or so there.

Cassie - OH MY GOODNESS. Magan, ummm those places are BEAUTIFUL! And Estelle, I now want to go to Coney Island! Wonderful and creative post, ladies!

PS- can we sneak me in the suitcase?? I’m little!

Katie - I love that you girls will be united shortly! You must be so excited 🙂 Hopefully I finally get to meet you Estelle! Oh, and I LOVE High Line!

Ginger @ GReads! - Love love love this post! I’ve actually been to both places (Austin too many times to count since it’s right in my backyard + only once to NYC!) Salt Lick is a must when visiting Austin. Mmm their BBQ is delicious. I tried to go to Serendipity when I was in NYC, but the wait was ridiculously long & we were on a time crunch. So I just checked out the gift shop & looked around the restaurant. Very cute.
