While not technically a desert, the more than 400 acres of sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in North Carolina’s Outer Banks inspire awe. Nestled a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and just next to the Roanoke Sound in Nags Head, these are the tallest living sand dunes on the eastern coast. But there is more to Jockey’s Ridge than just sand that makes it an important Outer Banks attraction. With multiple ecosystems, it is a fascinating exploration of nature that many don’t frequently experience that’s an Outer Banks adventure.

A visit during autumn can be a great way to experience the City of Brotherly Love and get a feel for what the city (and the region) is all about!

If there is one thing that I have learned over the last couple of years it is that Waldlaufer makes great boots. Sure, they make nice sneakers, too, and no matter what the style it’s comfortable and well-made in a way that’s difficult to find these days. But for the perfect winter travel boots, Waldlaufer is my go-to. The German shoe brand sent me a pair of their Jordy Hadessa and, quite frankly, I don’t want to take them off. These Waldlaufer boots are the most versatile for winter travel.
