The best part of travel is forgetting you're a tourist.
But when you're looking for off-the-beaten path destinations with natural wonders; independent arts, culture and food finds, and stand-out neighborhoods, it can be hard to know where to begin! That's where K.Co comes in. From small-town road trips to sharing interesting gems in larger cities, we make it easy to find, explore and support local communities and small businesses, whether you're on vacation, staycation, or just passing through.
Since 2016, K.Co has been a platform for writer Stephanie Khattak and photographer James Khattak to share inspiration, creative connections and unique experiences found in local businesses, culture and communities and off-the-path travel in Texas and elsewhere.
Our digital tools, such as travel guide itineraries and interactive maps, make our "creative adventures" and road trips more easily accessible, helping us help others to find their own inspiration in the destinations we love.
Of course the best experts on local communities are the locals themselves, so we definitely encourage you to connect with friendly, local CVB or other organizations in places that interest you. Most of them are on Instagram or other social platforms.
If you would like to work with us, license our photos, or let us know what's great in your own town, please get in touch! We are based in Dallas, Texas and are happy to work with creative collaborators nationwide.
K.Co Press: After five years of digital publishing, our first book, "Ten Texas Towns" will be available in 2022. This fine art travel book showcases local scenes from ten of the best Texas small towns we visited in 2021. (Other states - we'll get to you in book two, planned for September!)
Where to next? We're "geaux-ing" to check out Christmas in New Orleans via Natchitoches, Lafayette, Baton Rouge and anywhere else that looks like an interesting stop. If we will be near something great on this Louisiana road trip, let us know and maybe we will add it to the itinerary!
