Want To Work Together?

I’m passionate about history, travel and the tourism industry. I get excited when I read about off-the-beaten-path sites or historical destinations that need some love.

With 40 years of writing experience as a journalist, award-winning author, and a blogger, I understand the importance and power of words when it comes to business.

As Past Lane Travels continues to grow, I am interested in forming strategic partnerships with businesses and organizations that help foster a love for history and travel.

More About Our Brand

The foundation of the Past Lane Travels brand is our values. We are here to encourage people to explore our nation’s history, to inspire them to travel the back roads to lesser known destinations, and to help them understand the traditions and culture of different regions and states.

Go Off The Beaten Path

There is so much more to discover than “the top 10 things to do” in any town. Past Lane Travels goes beyond the touristy areas to share the authentic side of destinations.

Experience The Local Culture

Cultural immersion is such an important part of any journey. The food, culture and traditions in Louisiana are very different from those in New York or California or Wyoming. The influence of the Dutch in Pennsylvania is very different from the influence of indigenous populations in New Mexico. It’s a treat to learn about different heritages and immerse oneself in the local culture.

Support The Local Economy

As travelers it is our duty when visiting a destination to support the locals who live there. Past Lane Travels encourages our readers to find activities and tours that help the local economy. Eat at local mom and pop restaurants instead of chains (they’re better anyway), and shop at local stores. Traveling should benefit the locals just as much as travelers.

I Love Old Things

If you know of a historic hotel, restaurant, museum or tavern you think Past Lane Travels readers would like to visit, please let me know. We would love to review it. We’re also interested in small town festivals that have become local traditions.
