City & Travel Guides

Living Gracefully: A lifestyle blog focusing on fitness, fashion, and philanthropy. Simple ways to inspire your every day.

Through my curated travel guides, my favorite cities will come alive, so you can enjoy the trip of a lifetime!


Spending countless hours researching, coming web sites, reading guide books, asking friends…it can all feel so overwhelming when you are trying to plan the perfect vacation.

  • You want to maximize your time…
  • You want to spend your money wisely…
  • And you want to enjoy yourself once there!


The Curious Cowgirl Travel Guides are deeply researched, well-organized, and thoughtfully curated.

Over 12 years ago, I embarked on a travel journey, changing my life forever. An experience that brought me clarity, joy, freedom, and a deeply planted love for travel.

Today, as an Empty Nester who enjoys luxury travel, with practicality in mind, I travel relentlessly, and fall even more deeply in love with these cities with each visit.

And friends…I want to take you with me, every step of the way!

Each and every recommendation has been personally researched and vetted by me, with YOU in mind!
