Summer to us means balancing the nostalgia of childhood memories—like ice cream trucks and dashing through sprinklers—with a craving for new adventures, from travel to trying new recipes. We think you’ll agree these pages offer plenty of both! As our annual travel issue, this edition is filled with great destinations from the quirky capital of Texas to a bed-and-breakfast hideaway in Savannah to one of Old Florida’s best-kept secret beach towns, Apalachicola, and even more sunny getaways. But remember, some of the best summer escapes lie right outside the doors of your home.
