Kim Magaraci, Managing Editor

Kim Magaraci is the Managing Editor of ViaTravelers, and she's based in southern New Jersey. She's a minimalist traveler, hiker, and landscape photographer who spends tons of time exploring the wonders of the American West. She's been to 32 states, tracked down BBQ in 27 of them, and has skied in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Quebec. Her favorite cities are Philadelphia, Montreal, and Portland, Maine - but really, she spends most of her travels in small towns, national parks, and national forests. When she's not in the mountains, you'll find her at the barn with her horse Lyla, or running agility with her dog Wilco.
