My Top Ten Travel Destinations In The U. S.
I love to travel.
I especially like going to places I've never been.
For me, the fun is in exploring a new town and discovering all the little things that make that place great.
I love learning about the history,
and taking notice of architectural details on old buildings.
I get excited when I see something that is slightly different from my daily experiences in my own town.
I love seeking out restaurants to eat in
and meeting the towns people.
I like driving on the roads in and around town so I can look at all the houses,
and experience every little thing about the town.
I would like to travel abroad one day, but for now,
I have a list of places I want to visit in the United States.
These are my top ten:
1. Church Hill Downs (Kentucky Derby)
I've dreamed about the Kentucky Derby since I was a little girl.
2. Branson Missouri
I'm a country girl at heart so I would love touring the country music venue of Branson.
3. Yankee Stadium
I've been to New York and it was a fantastic vacation, however, I've always had the desire
to see the New York Yankees play live. I think this stems from watching old black and white movies about Lou Gherig and Babe Ruth when I was a child. Going to Yankee Stadium has been one of my dreams for as long as I can remember.
4. Savannah, Georgia
When I discovered Paula Deen on the food network, my desire to go to Savannah was born. It looks like such a pretty town and it's silly, but I want to go there just so I can say I ate at the Lady and Sons Restaurant. Well, that's not the only reason but it is high on the list. I also want to go on ghost tours.
5. St. Augustine, Florida.
One of the oldest cities in the U.S.
From a photographic perspective, this is a heavenly place.
6. Charleston, South Carolina
Another desire brought about by a TV show, Real Estate Pros
I actually want to go to Trademark Properties and meet some of the people that were on the show.
7. Anywhere in North Carolina
8. San Antonio, Texas
I'd like to see the famous River Walk Area
9. Seattle Washington
10. Santa Fe, New Mexico
I've heard that it is one of the prettiest cities in New Mexico. And of course,
I'd like to try some of their chiles.
My goal is to visit all 50 states before I die and explore tons of cities and towns within those states.
That is my most passionate desire.
And I will document every travel with photos!
What are your dream destinations? I'd love to hear about the places you'd like to visit or have already visited.
