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.


  1. Hoo-ray for you. I love it...I could have written the first part of this post myself. I love the same things. I've been to a few states...Colorado, California, and Maine south to Florida. I love New England, but I'd love to see more. My most recent trip was the first abroad...I had made a wish to see the Alps earlier this year and it came true! I look forward to all your upcoming travel photos with that new camera.

  2. The number 4 sounds cool. ANd the number 5 is the town of Gordon right? Thanks for sharing your top ten US Destinations

  3. Seattle is on my top places to see. My sister lives in North Carolina, she just loves it there. Your list looks pretty good to me.


  4. what a fantastic list! hope you make it to every one. if you come to Michigan be sure to visit the Great Lakes, the lake shore is so beautiful. and many beautiful water falls, I could go on and on.

  5. I like your list. Maybe that is something I can work on myself!
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I wanted to tell you that the ONLY hummingbird we get in our area is green! Wish we had some others, but they are still very pretty!
    I would also like to suggest another destination for you, that is my city, Chicago. It's a beautiful city with tons of things to see, do, and eat! Just don't come in the middle of winter!

  6. I have the travel bug too as you know - mostly for out of country experiences but there are still places domestically I'd love to visit too. I want to go to Boston, Washington DC, Seattle (I've been but it was years ago as a youngster), Miami, New Orleans - just to name a few.

  7. And I'll enjoy seeing every one of your photos when you do. A fine list of destinations. :)

  8. I have always wanted to visit Savannah, Georgia, too!! (and Charleston, and San Antonio, like you) Add Chicago and Austin, Tx. to my list....
