Looking to travel more with less? How about slowing down and experiencing more on your travel adventures?

I’m glad you’re here.

Hi, I’m Elle. I love exploring this beautiful thing called Planet Earth.

My goal is to help busy people like you plan affordable yet memorable adventures jam-packed with epic views, good food, and memorable cultural experiences.

Travels With Elle is a California-based travel blog that provides helpful travel guides on California, the West Coast, and beyond. Because I can’t help but write about ALL the other places I love around the world!

Follow me as I experience new cultures, try new foods, discover local businesses, and roam new streets. While you’re here, you can find all kinds of off-the-beaten-path travel tips, road trip itineraries, on-the-road life hacking ideas, and adventure guides to get you going on your next trip!

My mission is to make traveling as easy and accessible for you as possible. And in my world, it’s less about checking off a list and more about experiencing things and places where the crowds aren’t.

Learn from my mistakes, discover the best-kept secrets in a city, steal my trip-planning tricks, and go experience the world for yourself!

All you need to do is find a new destination, follow my travel guides, and prepare yourself to make new memories!
