Today, I head to Miami for a long weekend for some fun in the sun. While I am super-excited to get away and head to the Sunshine State, I have my heart set on five destinations that I want to visit this year—all in the good old US of A.
Montana looks absolutely amazing. It’s outdoorsy, scenic and would be a memorable experience to take the kids. There’s wildlife, glamping at the luxe Resort at Paws Up, Glacier National Park and parts of Yellowstone National Park, and a variety of outdoorsy activies—fly fishing, hiking, skiing, horseback riding—anytime of the year.
Big Sur, which is the central coast of California between Carmel and San Simeon, is a place to chill out and enjoy the beauty—jagged cliffs along the Pacific Coast Highway, pristine water, hiking, hot springs and so much more.
Recently, two people were raving to me about Portland, Maine, and that it should be a on my to-do list, especially now that I’m living in New England. This coastal city has great shops, world-class restaurants, classic New England architecture, killer lobster, tons of outdoorsy activities and scenic water views. Once the weather gets a bit warmer, I’ll be heading there, and excited now to have this destination close by.
A few years ago, a well-traveled friend came back from Marfa, Texas (in the western part of the state) and that it was super-cool and unique. It was when the buzz on Marfa was just starting to brew, and now it is one of the best places to see contemporary art in the US. It has funky hotels like this one, real cowboys and a unique simplicity.
Every year, I’ve been meaning to get to the Los Angeles area, but for some reason I just can’t get it together. One place that I’d really like to visit is Venice. The past few years it has gone through a resurgence with amazing restaurants, cool shops and a laid-back edgy vibe.
