Vacation please

I have the traveling bug...bad. All I want to do is get away for a week and go explore somewhere I've never been. And while I'd love to head off to Europe, here are some more realistic choices I've come up with.

When Mr. Bee and I started dating he always promised that he'd take me on a cross-country trip to Maine for lobster. I grew up in Connecticut and just love the East Coast. I'd love to go walk around the small towns, see the lighthouses and go to a clambake or two.

New Orleans
The amazing culture of New Orleans and the architecture has always been really appealing to me. I'd love to go to New Orleans for JazzFest. 21-year-old me would love Mardi Gras. 

I've always wanted to live in Portland. I don't think I've ever heard a bad thing about it. It looks like such a fun place to visit. Maybe it's the hipster atmosphere, the craft beer, the music, or the fact that every travel food show features Portland's "Voodoo Doughnuts" and I'm just craving a doughnut.

Where in the US have you always wanted to explore?


  1. South. I'd like to see North and South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I suppose Georgia too, since it isn't all Atlanta. Thanks for the inspiration. I can make up a driving trip, even if I never take it.

  2. I've always wanted to rent an RV and do a cross-country road trip and visit places like Yosemite and Mount Rushmore. I'm hoping gas prices come down soon and make that possible!

  3. My US cities are Charleston, San Francisco, San Diego and Boston. So many places to see, so little time (and money!).

  4. I have the traveling bug, too!!! My fiance and I get married in October and then we will go on our honeymoon. I'm hoping I can wait until then!!!

    Your blog is adorable!
