Hi, I’m Kate!
Together with my husband Jeremy, our dog Ranger, and a team of local writers, I’m determined to document every corner of Texas here on Lone Star Travel Guide (eventually).
As a travel writer who has visited 50+ countries (I share those experiences over on Our Escape Clause), I have grown more passionate every year about sharing the beauty and charm that exists right here in Texas.
Non-Texans may tend to picture cowboys and deserts when thinking of our state, but we all know that Texans are more likely to tell you about bluebonnets, the beauty of the Hill Country, and the importance of barbecue and breakfast tacos.
My intention for this site is to create the ultimate online Texas travel guide, useful to both first-time visitors looking to get beyond cowboy stereotypes and to lifelong Texans looking for new weekend getaways, hikes, or fun attractions close to home.
While that is a years-long–or possibly lifelong–project, it’s an incredibly rewarding one, and I cherish every day that I spend learning a little bit more about the state that I have called home on and off since birth.
Whether I’m hiking in Austin, trying out a new-to-me barbecue joint, chasing waterfalls across the state, or growing enamored with even more small Texas towns, I’m consistently amazed by what the Lone Star State has to offer–and excited to share it with you!
Thank you so much for stopping by–we’re thrilled to have you here!
