Tuesday Topics–7 American Cities

Life.Love.Lauren

I recently realized I have ten U.S. states left to visit in order to have visited all 50. I find that pretty amazing! So these cities are the next 7 cities I want to visit on my way to visiting all 50 states.

1. The Outer Banks, North Carolina

While not technically a city, there is something mystical about the Outer Banks. I would love to see the lighthouses, the wild horses, the beautiful beaches, and the Civil War Trail. I would also like to visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, and the settings described in books by Nicholas Sparks!

2. Hilton Head, South Carolina

I love lighthouses and doesn’t this one look so cute? I have heard Hilton Head is a great vacation spot!

3. Lincoln City, Oregon

Moving to the opposite coast, I think the beaches in Oregon sound beautiful! I came up with Lincoln City randomly – any city along the coast would be fine with me.

4. West or East Glacier, Montana

Glacier National Park looks amazing! I’ve always imagined Montana to be a beautiful state and would love to see it one day!

5. Bryce Canyon, Utah and Springdale, Utah

Another two National Parks I’d like to visit are Bryce Canyon and Zion!

6. Santa Fe, New Mexico

With so much history, Santa Fe sounds like a nice place to visit.

7. New Orleans, Louisiana

Full of culture, the French Quarter especially sounds interesting to me!

Have you visited any of these cities?

I heard the Outer Banks has a beach that has wild horses roaming on it. I would so be down to see that. I never had a desire to see Montana but the picture on your blog might change my mind.

Those are some beautiful places!! :) I want to make it to the OBX soon! Sad as I am only 4-5 hours away, lol. I used to live in Santa Fe! I have been to Bryce Canyon as well as Zion. My family hiked through it, but I wasn't feeling well so I stayed in the vehicle. :( I have been to Montana and into Canada and hiked on glaciers. Soo neat!! That is so great that you have been to so many states! I would love to do that! :)

I want to go to every single one of those! Minus Santa Fe because I have already been there a million times...

Hilton Head is nice! The beaches are beautiful!

I haven't been to any of those, and I haven't visited nearly as many states as you have, either! The pictures you got to illustrate the destinations sure make them look attractive, though!

I'm right there with you on visiting the Outer Banks and New Orleans. They're on the list of anniversary trips :-)

Maybe I'm a bit impartial, but I definitely think you need to pay a visit to New Orleans!
