I have been to Philly a few times. I have explored the necessary monuments, eaten a cheese steak or two and even had a one night stand. Heading back there for a weekend I felt like I could explore more of the off the beaten path experiences and take more time.
People said I was crazy to spend a January weekend in Vermont. The possibility of the weather being hard to deal with was inevitable. If I didn’t go then when would I go?
My favorite states during the road trip were New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. The most beautiful landscapes would pass by as we drove. We planned on hiking in Bryce Canyon and staying there for two nights in a Tipi.
In retrospect I could have just lived in Savannah. Not continued the trip , moved into a moss covered house and enjoyed Leopold’s ice cream every day. However it was a mere 24 hours I spent in this lovely city.
I already had the pleasure of spending time in Memphis about a decade ago and knew it was the kind of city I wanted to return to. However I was itching to get to Nashville. As a huge fan of country music I was excited to see all the places I had heard about.
Everyone raves about LA but San Diego is where it’s at. Although they told me the weather is perfect and while I was there it was colder than NY on some days, I still really enjoyed the laid back surfer attitude of San Diego. There are so many other reasons to go to SD besides…
Earlier this year I spent a month driving around the USA and besides realizing how glad I am that I live in New York I also realized how many great ice cream places there are!
Have you ever stayed in an HI Hostel? Until my time in Austin I had not. For some reason I was under the impression they were for really young travelers and had curfews. I could not have been more wrong about what they stand for and how wonderful they are.
Obviously the French Quarter is known for Bourbon Street. Besides Hurricane’s ( the drink that is) and heaps of multi colored beads there are lot of reason’s to head down to the famed area. These are my suggestions for exploring the French Quarter.
Denver is the biggest city in Colorado. It has a population of about 500k. I rolled into “The Mile High City” in the late afternoon on a Friday and had until Sunday morning to explore the city. How do you roll it all into barely 36 hours? I am here to help you.
I wish I would have taken a road trip down to Wilmington, North Carolina back when I graduated from high school. It would have been the “Dawson’s Creek” mecca I had always dreamed it would be. It is mostly devoted to “One Tree Hill” now but whispers of my favorite WB drama still exist if…
By the time I reached Austin, Texas we had been on the road for nearly two weeks. Spending a lot of time in a car getting from one destination to another we decided we would try to walk most days we were exploring cities. Turns out Austin is not so easy to see by foot….
