McCool Travel Tips: 5 Minutes With Pauline Frommer

McCool Travel is excited to present tips from travel experts in our 5 Minutes interview series featuring travel industry giants, super frequent travelers, and adventurous persons.
For the 14th profile, I am honored to present Pauline Frommer. Recognize the name? Her father is Arthur Frommer, a true travel industry giant. Pauline Frommer is blazing her own trail as the creator of the award-winning Pauline Frommer Guidebooks, radio talk show host, and travel blogger. She calls New York City home but is an insatiable wanderer. I was fortunate to talk travel with Pauline Frommer at the Washington D.C. Travel and Adventure Show last month.
