The Hidden Gems So Far…

It dawned on me the other day that my Hidden Gems series has hit a milestone! As of yesterday, my travel guide series has been going on for SIX months. I have a bunch more awesome places lined up for the rest of the year, but I thought I’d take today to do a little re-cap of where we’ve been so far.

During the last six months, 23 of my blogger friends have taken us to 26 cities around the world. We’ve been to three continents and 14 states. Each guide features original photos and a list of places to eat + drink, shop, explore and road trip at each spot. I’ve learned a lot about the places my friends want to show off: Some cities are well-known and full of hole-in-the-wall jewels, while other cities themselves are the hidden gems, places that might normally be overlooked.

Missed a few? Planning a trip? Catch up on the Hidden Gems travel guides by clicking on the gems below. (Plus, aren’t they just lovely all lined up like that?!)
