Join ESSENCE editor D’Shonda Brown and travel enthusiast Ciara for a two-day, whirlwind trip to Austin, TX. As a Texas native, Ciara knows where all the hidden gems are, from Brown’s Bar-B-que food truck (you’ve got to try the peach cobbler) to rooftop yoga. She then invites D’Shonda to step out of her comfort zone by showing off this destination’s unique blend of blend of city and nature with paddle boarding trip followed by a little cultural immersion at the George Washington Carver Museum.

But, according to D’Shonda and Ciara, this trip wouldn’t be possible without American Airlines.
