Welcome to the Twenty-Something Traveler – the new travel podcast only on BTR! Hosted by DJ Jess, this podcast is entirely dedicated to helping twenty-somethings get out and travel. An array of guests from around the globe will teach you how to do it for cheap — including info on couchsurfing, work study, AirBnB, hitchhiking, walking, road trips, and all manner of ways to see the world you haven’t considered. Plus each week we’ll ask a local living in a popular destination to curate their best 24-hours there so you’ll get the most authentic experience possible from the minute you arrive!
This week’s topic is “Road Trips!” There’s no better way to take in a country then meandering it’s stretching highways, stopping in small towns along at the way, checking out oddities, hanging with locals, all at your own leisure. Tune in to hear TST’s best road trip apps, plus all sorts of road tripping tips from special guests —

Then we’ll get some local eyes on the best routes for East Coast fall leave viewing with BTR’s own Tanya Silverman! There’s no need for Google Maps, Tanya grew up in New York and will tell you the EXACT ROUTES to take, what towns to stop in, and what hikes to try to optimize your East Coast fall!
Highlights from Tanya Silverman’s East Coast Leaf Viewing
The park in Westchester is further south, so if you’re heading down from Peekskill towards the city it’s worth checking out. This particular part, called Rockwood, is super awesome for river/fall leaf views. It should also be an easy place to walk a dog, as it’s manicured, easy to navigate, and not that big.
One road that you can drive there, 117, was in the opening scene of Super Troopers — where the cops caught the guys smoking weed!
