I’m back with another highly subjective list! There are so many places we’ve been around the country, but also so many places we haven’t, and I can only choose places I’ve been so feel free to recommend future trips! The pics are mine 🙂
- New York City. Jason and I had visited a few times before we lived in midtown Manhattan from May – October 2000. We go back as much as we can, next trip June. I love the energy.
- Washington D.C. Jason and I met when we were both living in the DC area and lived there for 3 years (1995-1998). I’d move back in a heartbeat if the opportunity arose. So much history and so much to do.
- San Francisco, California. I’ve been there twice, once in my 20’s and once in my 30’s and loved the coastal city both times. Beautiful and charming.
- New Orleans, Louisiana. One visit in high school (1987) was all it took to appreciate the charm and culture shock of this city.
- Boston, Massachusetts. We visited a few years ago and I fell in love with the history and vibe of the city.
- Niagara Falls, New York. One of my favorite places is standing under the Bridal Falls on the US side of the Falls. After that I recommend heading across the border and spending the rest of your day on the Canadian side 🙂
- Santa Monica, California. Or somewhere around there. I lived in West LA in the summer of 1994 and loved the access to so many of the beach communities.
- Kelleys Island, Ohio. I love big cities, but we discovered a little 4 mile island on Lake Erie only an hour from Cleveland that enables us to disconnect and take a deep breath.
- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We’ve visited here a few times because it’s so close to home. Love the big city museums, the water, and the smaller city feel.
- A tie because I can’t make up my mind and I’m not wasting any more time one this 🙂 Burlington, Vermont, Denver, Colorado, or Houston, Texas. What’s your vote?
What are your favorite US cities?
