I have a confession to make… I think about planning weekend getaways at least once a day. And on Fridays, this obsession is even greater as a weekend is upon us. And so today I thought I’d share my favorite travel guides and this week’s found item, Wildsam Field Guides, which The Wall Street Journal claims are “for the tireless seekers of the authentic.” Guess that’s me!

K and I bought our first Field Guide for our trip to Austin last fall and read it cover to cover {and sadly left in our rental car}. What I love about these guides is not only the design {perfect size to fit in your tote}, but the content includes a mix of prose and personalities, historical tidbits and local interviews. With each page, you feel like you are getting insider advice from a dear friend as these guides tell the true stories of a specific place.

Guides are currently available for Nashville, Austin, Detroit, San Francisco, New Orleans and Brooklyn. Word on the street is that a Charleston guide will be released later this fall. Planning a getaway to any of these fine locals, I highly recommend picking one of these up. Not only are they are wonderful resource, but the collection makes a beautiful little vignette on a bookshelf!

And wondering where the name WildSam came from? Go to your bookshelf and refer to Steinbeck’s East of Eden. The world was peopled with wonders.

Enjoy this weekend, dear friends!
