Travel Expert, Nancy DePalma

Travel Expert,
Nancy DePalma

Nancy DePalma was bitten by the travel bug at an early age and found the joy and adventure in simple day trips from her childhood home in New Jersey. During college, she scraped together her pennies to travel abroad during winter and summer breaks. While the post-college years brought “real” jobs in publishing and public relations, she eventually found a way to marry her passion for travel with her love of the written word.

She has been telling people where to go, what to do, and where to eat or stay for almost a decade while writing extensively about travel and fine dining. She has authored or contributed to eight books, including Forbes(Mobil)Travel Guides, Michelin Red Guides to New York City, America’s Best Hotel & Resort Spas, and Where to Eat: Boston/Cape Cod, among others. Her writing has also been featured in a variety of magazines and websites. She writes about travel at her new website and blog, www.thedestinationmaven.com.

After living in New York City, Connecticut, and North Carolina, Nancy has returned to the Northeast again, where she lives with her husband and two children. She may be reached at nancy@nancydepalma.com.
