Hey, loves. I wanted to continue on with this travel kind of segment I’m doing. I decided to break up my travel suggestions to the United States and the rest of the world. Anywho, here are my recommendations of where to visit in the US.
Alright, if you’ve read my Montana post or anything about me, you’ll know that I absolutely love my home state. I know I’m a little bit biased as a born and raised Montanan, but if you just take quick peek at my other post, you’ll understand why I so high recommend visiting here.
If you are able to make it, my favorite destinations and cities are Livingston, Missoula, Yellowstone National Park, and Glacier National Park. All of is breathtakingly gorgeous, but these are all must sees.
Okay, so I know that this may seem obvious, but there’s a reason why Cali is so famous. There are so many beautiful scenes and towns all along the coast, and you’ll never be at a loss for something to do. I have family in the L.A. area, and I love visiting them for the beach and really good food.
If you’re heading there, check out Berkeley for great coffee shops and boutique shopping, Santa Cruz for the boardwalk and the beach, Lake Tahoe for either lake time or ski time, and of course, L.A.
While I do like most of Oregon, I especially love the Oregon Coast. No, you won’t be able to jump in the Pacific Ocean (I mean, you can if you really want to but it’ll be cold), but you will find beautiful agates and equally beautiful cuisine. You’ll probably begin to realize that I’m heavily guided by good food.
Anyway, my favorite Oregon coastal towns are Bandon and Newport. While you’re there, you should also stop by Portland for the famous Voodoo doughnuts and to see all the “weird” residents.
Like California, this may seem like a no brainer, but I can’t stress enough how much I love Hawaii. I’ve only been to Maui, but I hope to go back and explore the rest of the islands sometime soon. Hawaii is paradise, and like many other places, there’s so much to do. When I was there, we went hiking, snorkeling, surfing, shopping, etc.
This is weird one, and I can only really talk about Houston, Texas, but I promise, I have a good reason for putting it on this list. And that really great reason is the food. I’m not going to pretend that Houston is gorgeous and scenic. It’s not. It’s a giant, busy city. The only thing to do there is shop at massive malls and eat. There happens to be a thriving Vietnamese (and Asian in general) community in Houston which translates to amazing food. You can find an infinite amount of small, hole in the wall restaurants that will serve the best food you’ve ever had all for a reasonable price. It’s completely worth the visit.
I hope you enjoyed this brief list of where to visit in the US. I haven’t spent much time on the East Coast or the Mid West, so I can’t really give many recommendations there, but I know there are plenty more great places to explore.
Have you been to any of these places? Where would you add to this list?
