Spring Travel Guide: From Copenhagen And Cartagena To The Texas Hill Country

Spring, leading into summer, is a time to get the hell out of Dodge — be it by car, plane or train. Or maybe on the back of a Vespa, if you are living in parts of Southeast Asia. So allow us make some suggestions on where to best spend your time, and money. And by the simple fact that you've found Food Republic, we're going to target destinations with, simply put, some pretty badass food and drink. Because we know that is important to you. These spots include:

Copenhagen, Denmark: We found 10 places to eat and drink if you can't get a reservation at Noma. It's OK, that place can wait. The Danish capital simply cannot.

Austin, Texas: A guide to eating and drinking around Austin, as well as the best barbecue spots in Lockhart, Elgin and Luling.

Cartagena, Colombia: Where to eat and drink in South America's new culinary hotspot.

Los Angeles: America great (underexposed) food-travel destinations. The best Mexican and Korea restaurants. Plus, a booming downtown.

Italy: It's clear that you can find spectacular cuisine in Genoa and Rome, but we've found an outstanding beer scene too. Plus, aperitivo. Of course there is aperitivo.

Also, New Orleans and Paris. Happy travels!
