Since it’s summer, and I’m not in school – I’m dreaming of traveling somewhere far away. I haven’t been anywhere for this summer break… YET. Except Los Angeles, but that doesn’t count because I’m from there, and that’s where my family is! I am always visiting LA every few months.
Here are some of my top picks, of places I’m dying to visit at the moment. None of these will be out of the country because my boyfriend needs to renew his passport (and it’s taking him FOREVER TO DO- UGH!)
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA.
I’ve been DYING to visit Charleston for years and years. My grandmother is actually from South Carolina, but has lived in California for over 30 years. I’m most interested in seeing what the South has to offer: eating seafood & southern comfort food, seeing the historical sites, beautiful Southern homes with wrap-around-porches, and the amazing Spanish moss that grows on trees. I love the idea of sipping sweet tea, strolling the beautiful downtown area! Also, seeing my grandma’s home state would be amazing!
I already have a long list of places I want to see, eat, and visit. I hope to go here soon. Crossing my fingers.
Savannah! Also in the South, known for their food, beautiful scenery, and history! I have heard nothing but good things about this city. I have been dying to go here as well! If I ever get to Charleston, I’m making the drive to Savannah (it’s not that far). I am so interested in seeing the beautiful old plantation homes, and learning more about them.
BAR HARBOR & PORTLAND, MAINE.
I have never really explored the East Coast before. I have been wanting to go to Maine, for a long time. I actually want to go during the summer months and the Autumn months. Autumn is my favorite season, I’ve seen pictures of all the beautiful trees changing colors- SO stunning! But I can only imagine what it would look like in person. Not only am I going for the beautiful scenery (which is a huge part of it) but for the SEAFOOD! Eating a lobster roll from Maine is on my wishlist! I want delicious, fresh seafood all day! Another thing I’m looking forward to, is seeing some light houses. I just think it’s such a picturesque place, so I hope to visit soon.
CAPE COD, MASSACHUSETTS.
Another beautiful place by the sea. I’m drawn to water, it’s perfect for a relaxing vacation. It has quaint little shops and restaurants. Cape Cod is known for their cute cottages, which I’m in love with. I definitely want to explore this area! Cape Cod compromises of 15 towns (I didn’t know this!) Bourne, Sandwich, Falmouth, Mashpee, Barnstable, Yarmouth, Harwich, Dennis, Brewster, Chatham, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown. I’m sure there is A LOT to see and do in each town. I mean, just look at these pictures….
So these are my top places I want to visit. Of course I have tons and tons of other places, but these are the ones I want to go to within the next year! What are some of your places you want to see/visit? Have you been to any of the ones I’ve mentioned?- if so, how did you like it?
