There has been some crazy weather this winter all over America. Some people are snowed in, some are facing horrible driving conditions and some are wondering when winter is going to start!?! I'm sure there are plenty of people wanting a change of scenery, wherever they may live.
If getting out of town is just what the doctor ordered, take a look at my Top 5 List of US Vacation Destinations.
Puerto Rico is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful pieces of land in the world! We are so lucky for it to be part of our united country.
Much of Puerto Rico is bilingual, and from my experience, is very accommodating toward English speaking Americans. They have a very inexpensive public transportation system and the cost of goods is very comparable to how things would be priced here on the mainland. The only exception is the Bacardi Rum... get some it's cheap!
You can take your kids and play on the beach, or take you and your partner on a cultural experience.
You could even go alone, I'm sure there are plenty of hot Latin lovers that could occupy your time while you're visiting! Aquí Hay Gato Encerrado! ("there's something fishy going on!"... but literally translated as Puerto Rican for, "there's a trapped cat here!") Practice up on your PR slang!
This may be one of your most expensive vacations, but it is certainly something you should cross off of your "bucket-list".
"There is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless"- Simone De Beauvoir. It is truly a city that moving 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! There is something for everyone and always something to do!
From taking a stroll in Central Park to partying the night away at the world's swankiest clubs, you won't be bored in the Big Apple! While you are there, spend a day in Time Square and see a Broadway show that night! Also, have some pizza and take the NYC Subway.
This city is like nothing else in the world! After all, it is known as the "biggest collection of villages in the world"!
Skip Vegas people! New Orleans is the place to be! Whether you are going to party or to get a history lesson, it will surely be an American vacation worth taking!
Visiting the French Quarter is a must! While there, I would schedule a ghost hunting tour and hear stories on VooDoo and vampires!
Although this may not be the time of year you would want to visit (no sunlight), Alaska can be that outdoor adventure that you always wanted.
If you plan a trip, take a cruise up the West Coast! This will give you the opportunity to see the American North-West and Canada while making your way "North to the Future" (Alaska state slogan).
When you arrive, stay in a cabin with a beautiful view and a fireplace. Snuggle up and watch the snow fall or go on an outdoor adventure by snowshoeing, fishing or hunting. It will be a vacation that you won't soon forget!
Known as the "Athens of the South", Nashville Tennessee is better known for putting country music on the map. A city filled with musical culture, provides music fans of any genre an opportunity to see first-hand where stars are made.
A person vacationing in Nashville would, of course, want to visit Opryland. But I would also suggest going to different clubs/bars to see some unsigned talent, many who have uprooted their whole lives to move to Nashville and make it big!
In conclusion, GET OUT OF TOWN! Explore the US! Go somewhere warm (for those in the cold)... and go somewhere cold (for those in the warm)!
WEll done list of great destinations. I have yet to go to Alaska, but have been the others and agree they are wonderful. h5
I have been to three of the five. Loved Puerto Rico and Nashville. We were in New Orleans when the Packers were in the Super Bowl there. Nice list.
You've got Alaska and Puerto Rico here, which are two I haven't gotten to yet. Must go!
