10 Dream (US) Destinations

Today my summer is officially over as new students start orientation today. Let’s take a second and say where did the summer go. Cliche, but true. Also how am I already starting my second year here?

So it seems appropriate to dream about vacations right when summer is dying down right?

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about different places I wanted to go around the world.

Here are some places I would love to visit right here in the United States. These are all places that I have never been to, because the place I want to go back to visit is Charleston, South Carolina. Every Day, All Day.

So where would I be going?

Montana Glacier National Park

I have read a lot about this place. One just look at it. Amazing. Two, this is probably a vacation I could get my husband on board with because of wilderness.

I think this would be a great early fall destination. I have never been to the Northeast really, and everything about Maine seems lovely. Also let’s talk about the food options.

So if I am going to be honest, there was a small portion of me that hoped Tom would have been stationed in Hawaii. I mean look at it. I would be so relaxed on that beach! I love the ocean and sun so much. I think I was born in the wrong part of the country sometimes.

I think most people want to go here, so I will jump on that American bandwagon. There is just something about this place that just leaves me in awe.

Yellowstone National Park

This is another place I could convince Tom to go with me. The untouched nature would just be interesting to experience.

San Francisco, California

This place just looks like a good time. There is just so much to see and do. It just seem like a happening place that also has some interesting flair to it that you won’t see elsewhere. This would be a great girlfriend trip someday.

Asheville, North Carolina

I am still kicking myself for not getting to Asheville while I lived in Clemson. Oh well. I would love to see the Biltmore, but Asheville has a really eclectic culture that I would like to experience. And I have heard some of the restaurants in the area are wonderful. You also can’t beat the scenery of this area!

Antelope Canyon, Arizona

This place just doesn’t seem real from the pictures. I would LOVE to see these in real life. So beautiful.

Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida

Doesn’t this place just look cool? There are just so many interesting things about this place. It is very unique. And beaches always get me going.

Albuquerque, New Mexico

I want to go here simply to see the hot air balloon festival. And maybe I could ride in one.

So there you have it. These are just some of the places I want to go stateside.

Have you been to any of these? Where would you go?

  1. The only two on your list I’ve been to are the Grand Canyon and Albuquerque! I loved both and would definitely go again! And Albuquerque is where we got engaged in a hot air balloon – too funny! 🙂

    Te #1 pace on my USA list is definitely Yellowstone. We meant to make it there when living in CO for so long, but it just never happened.

  2. Yellowstone and Glacier Parks are the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to!! Zach and I went there on our honeymoon and it’s still one of my favorite vacations! Now I definitely want to learn more about Asheville though–that house is gorgeous!

  3. These photos makeme want to try to visit all of these places! Well, except Hawaii, since we’re already here. Have you been to Savannah? I’ve never been to Charleston, but I’d go back to Savannah in a heartbeat!

I would love to hear your thoughts!
