As editors of a city lifestyle magazine with a travel section that covers locales far beyond our beloved Phoenix Valley, you can imagine that we get pitched A TON about new and exciting travel offers around the country. Of course, we can't fit everything into a 200-page monthly magazine that only allots five of those pages to regional travel. Sigh... 'tis the nature of publishing.

But it pains us too much to kill all of our darlings. So each month, we scrape a few travel tidbits off the cutting room floor and bring you Travel Bag Bites – bite-size travel-related goodies (special offers, activities and deals) to snack on while planning your next great escape.

Arizona’s unlikeliest boom town – strangely located not in Maricopa County, but in Pinal – incorporated as Arizona’s 88th city in 2000, with a population of 1,040. By 2002, its population soared to 15,934, and today it hovers around 48,602. Here’s what’s new in this swelling desert city, located about 35 miles south of Downtown Phoenix.

Knife & Fork Media Group president Susie Timm had her priorities straight for her second visit to Austin to see family this past Christmas. “Instead of seeing the ‘sights’ we mostly focused on eating as much barbecue, tacos and queso as possible,” Timm says. “The ratio of taco to human is near 1:1. There’s more than one taco place per strip center in some spots... It’s an excellent place to visit to enjoy Texas hospitality and truly amazing food.”

She walks us through her epicurean scavenger hunt.
