While nothing can replace actually visiting a destination itself to find unique souvenirs, sometimes we can travel closer to home. This section is geared towards my US readers who can’t jet off to another continent at a moment’s notice, but still want to explore a foreign destination.

We’ll explore ethnic enclaves around America, places where immigrants from all around the world have settled down and called home. Many of these areas have retained their traditional cultures., their cuisine and even some of their goods from their foreign homes. I love visiting these foreign respites for a dash of culture and as a bonus, I can often bring home edible souvenirs that might otherwise be too perishable for a fifteen hour flight. This section will be biased to New York City where I live, but will also explore great foreign pockets all over America.
