8 Desirable U.S. Destinations
January is here - the heart of winter. Some of you are set on traveling to a warm winter getaway, while the rest of us are slowly preparing for a single digit temperature reading in the coming weeks. Best believe. As we gear up for the tomfoolery of winter, here is a nice list to keep you warm: 8 U.S. destinations to include on your bucket list. Why 8? Because I felt like it : ) Enjoy!
8) Honolulu, Hawaii
Expense will likely be the reason I couldn't make Honolulu my permanently home, but one of these days, I'll gladly announce that I was fortunate enough to place my feet in the sand for a week... or two.
7) Hilton Head Island, SC
Hilton Head Island makes the list simply because I overhead a high-level executive at a former company speak favorably of it. From the reviews read and images I've seen, I'm certainly intrigued.
6) Houston, TX
I was supposed to visit H-Town sometime in 2003, but unfortunately plans didn't surface. Aside from heavy traffic and the threat of hurricanes, Houston remains a favorable choice. The city is booming, homes are affordable, Texas is a tax-free state, and I've finally forgiven the Houston Rockets for beating the New York Knicks in the 1994 NBA Finals
5) Las Vegas, NV
You know what grinds my gears? I visited Vegas in 2017, walked to the iconic billboard (above) and promptly forgot to take out my cell phone. HOW CAN YOU GO TO VEGAS AND NOT TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS?! Do you know what else stinks? I accidentally damaged that very-same-phone a few months later, losing a sh*tload of pics. Meaning I have very little proof that I traveled to Sin City. I suppose I'll have to visit once more : )
4) Santa Monica, CA
What you're looking at is an image of the Santa Monica Pier in L.A. The imagery alone is enough for me to hop on the next flight out west.
3) San Francisco, CA
Four things I need to do once visiting San Francisco:
1) Take a trolley ride through the city
2) Visit AT&T Park (now known as Oracle Park); home of the San Francisco Giants
3) Take pics in front of the iconic house featured on Full House
4) Stand next to the Golden Gate Bridge and soak it all in.
2) Grand Canyon in Arizona
I understand temperatures regularly reach triple digits in the summer, but do you see this masterpiece?! I didn't quite hear you! If this image doesn't do it for you, I don't know what does. Grand Canyon - hope to see you soon... during the winter months, of course.
1) San Diego, CA
A lot of California bias going on here, I'll admit, but San Diego has been # 1 on my list for many years; it won't change now. What can I say? I'm a sucker for sunny skies, palm trees and beaches. If all bodes well, I hope to make this my next vacation spot.
