Celebrity Travel: Go away with Jake Horowitz

Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

Jake Horowitz’s latest role is as a carnival worker in the film “Bones and All.” While he won’t divulge too much about the character he plays, the actor gave us some insight when asked if he would readily travel with the carny. “He’s a thrill seeker – that friend who would encourage you to hop the fence into the abandoned building (and) to say yes to the stranger’s party invite,” the Manhattan resident said. “He’s a bit of a wild card and trouble maker. So, depending on your taste, he’d either be an excellent or horrifying travel mate. You might not make it back but, if you did, you’d have some stories to tell...”

Q: Where did you film “Bones and All”?

A: Cincinnati. I didn’t have too much time to explore, but we were staying close to the river, so I was able to take some long walks down by the river and through the parks along the water, which were beautiful and really nicely maintained. Also, (I ate) some amazing food. Had great Indian and Japanese meals, and I also went to this steakhouse called The Precinct, which was out of this world.

Q: Are you a warm or cold weather fan for vacations?

A: I’m a big beach lover. The ocean is a huge healing and happy place for me. I love San Diego for that reason – so many beautiful and varying beaches all up and down the coast there.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?


A: I cannot recommend Iceland enough. It just took me by surprise. It was wild and mesmerizing and otherworldly. The waterfalls and the hikes were unforgettable – specifically Glymur. Don’t miss that one if you go! And you have to go to the Blue Lagoon, the outdoor geothermal spa. It felt like swimming on the moon. A lot of the country feels otherworldly like that. When I was there, it was always light out. I want to go back in the winter for the Northern Lights when it’s dark all day long.

Q: What’s the last active trip you went on?

A: A few summers ago, my best friend and I biked from San Francisco to Los Angeles over eight days and it was so beautiful. The bike path is easy to follow and we did the trip pretty much without using Google maps at all – just a printed map that laid out the bike path. Biking Big Sur was one of the best days of my life. It was uphill for what seemed like hours. But the whole way up and down the cliffs and coastline are stunning. And along the way there are these farms with fresh fruit, the strawberries in particular. I mean, it was just the greatest. If you like biking, do it as soon as you can!

Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?
