Travel

AGEIST travels take you out in the world to seek, see, participate, and experience with curiosity and a genuine sense of adventure. We aim for first dibs exclusives–experiences we get to before anyone else and stories that take you deeper into a place or get under its skin in a new way. We are about experiences more than hotels or shops, but that said, our contributors have exquisite taste. We promise to steer you well.

Dreaming up your next trip is almost as fun as traveling itself.It is where you cast your desires forward, follow a thread of curiosity, and sometimes project outwardly an inward version of yourself that may otherwise go ignored — how you want to feel, whose footsteps you want to...

Sea Ranch

We’re fans of the less-trodden areas of California: the Mojave Desert; the Esalen Institue at Big Sur and, recently, The Sea Ranch. First settled by hardy Germans in the mid 19th century, Sea Ranch was home to livestock ranchers and farmers for more than a century, with alternating owners from different...
When you're making your travel plans for 2019, make sure to add Hocking Hills, Ohio to your list.

Our home base is Los Angeles, and because there is so much air travel in our lives, when we need to take a break to recharge, sometimes it’s nice not to involve the TSA. Our favorite getaway is the Palm Springs Colony Palms Hotel, a lovely hotel that understands...
