Kim Foley MacKinnon is a Boston-based editor, journalist and travel writer. Her work has appeared in the Boston Globe, AAA Horizons, Travel + Leisure and USA Today, among others. Travel is her passion, with food a close second. She is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers (currently serving as the Eastern Chapter first vice-chair, 2014-16) and has several guidebooks to her credit.

In 2014, her travels abroad include Mexico, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Dubai, Germany, and Iceland. In the U.S., assignments took her all over New England and to Florida, Virginia (Old Town and VA Beach), Detroit, Atlantic City, and a road trip to the Grand Canyon, among others. She’s only got three states left to complete the whole set (looking at you Idaho, Minnesota and North Dakota!) and has visited almost 50 countries so far.

Travels scheduled in 2015 include Norway, New Orleans, France, Portsmouth, VA, Newfoundland, and Las Vegas.
