Five on Friday: my travel bucket list!

Friday, March 27, 2015

I feel very fortunate to have traveled a decent amount in my lifetime, but there are MANY places I have yet to see. All of our family trips were outside the country to tropical places, so there are so many
places in the U.S. that are on my bucket list. It's hard for us to travel with me being in school still, both financially and due to not being able to miss class/rotations. However, I am hoping to start traveling a little more after graduation! Here are the top 5 spots in our country that I hope to travel to in the near future:


Napa Valley, California. Beautiful scenery and endless amounts of wine? Yes please. I have always wanted to go to Napa and I think it would be a super romantic getaway for hubs and I.


Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This has been on my list for as long as I can remember. G and I love doing anything outdoors and have the best "quality time" together when we are outdoors. One of my high school friends moved there and every time he posts a picture, this spot moves further up to the top of my list. Jackson Hole has so many breathtaking outdoor activities depending on the season. Skiing, dog sledding, whitewater rafting, hiking, fly fishing, and much more. The hardest part would be deciding whether to go in the spring/summer or fall/winter! 


Hawaii. Need I say more?


Savannah, GA. My sister and her husband went last year and loved it. I've heard it's similar to Charleston, my very favorite city. Savannah is full of good food and southern charm. Definitely a must!


Washington, DC. I'm ashamed to say I have never been to our country's capital. I'm not a huge history buff so I don't think I would have appreciated this city when I was younger, but I am eager to visit and do all the touristy things now. I love museums and I hear there is great shopping ;) My husband's whole family went last summer to watch our cousin Rob play against the Nationals but of course PA school kept me from going. I hope to visit DC in the near future!

Have you been to any of these spots? Which cities in our country are a must-see? 


  1. I've never seen Jackson Hole, but oh my gosh it is amazing! Sometimes I forget all the amazing places to visit right here in the states!

  2. I would love to go to DC - and Napa Valley too.

    Man - I just want to take a vacation!

  3. Jackson Hole and Napa are on my list once I hit some places on the east coast first. OMG, when you go to D.C., I've got some recommendations for you. I ADORE D.C. and Georgetown. Also, you will LOVE Savannah. There is no open container policy which makes for awesome day time adventures. Seriously, it's amazing. xo

  4. DC is a must-see...absolutely. You've got a great list and found some great pics too!

  5. Napa, DC and Savannah are some of my favorite places within the US! You won't be disappointed with any of them! Xo, Stephanie

  6. I haven't been to DC since I was 10 so I would definitely want to visit again. And Jackson Hole looks absolutely beautiful.. I'm so ready to have a job, make $$ and travel more as well!! Only a few more months girl :)
