[Bucket List] Five places in the US I want to visit

For this list, I tried to focus on places I have either never been or been through but never really spent much time visiting. There are a number of reasons for each, which I will detail below.

Many of these places I would love to visit but not live in, while others I could stay. But for now, I am set and happy to stay in Tennessee.

New Orleans LA The Big Easy has always been a place I wanted to visit. It just seems to be a city with a unique mix of French, Spanish and American influences that it must be very interesting to see. Plus, with the bayou nearby, I think it would be a place where there is so much to do that I would either have to live there for a while OR go there many, many times to get to do everything.

Hawaii I mean, do I really need to give any explanation? Is there anyone who does NOT have Hawaii on their list? I would love to go see the lava fields, the beaches, attend a luau, take a fishing expedition for large fish (tuna/ sharks/ anything). But also take one of those helicopter tours around the islands to see the lush vegetation. I'd like to so snorkeling in the water.

Philadelphia PA Philadelphia is a city I would like to see mostly for its colonial heritage and ancient structures. It just seems like an interesting city. Plus when there, I would have to have a REAL Philly cheesesteak. In Philly! I like them, but I've been told by more than one native that "It's not the same outside Philly" so I need to know what the hubbub is about.

Miami FL I have always wanted to go to Miami. It seems like a nice and fun town: from the beach to the nightlife, I think its Cuban flair is exotic and interesting. I'd like to do similar things to what I'd do in Hawaii, but add to that re-learning how to sail a boat and head off into the Carribeans, see the islands were pirates once hunted for Spanish gold and silver... Perhaps find such a ship myself... Yarrr! T'would'be fun. Yarrr!

Los Angeles CA LA is a city I would love to visit, but would not like to live in. I went there shortly back in 2011. I would love to do the tourist thing: visit the movie studios, see the beach front, oh and the "CHiPs"... I do have a number of friends there (shout-out to Robyn-N, Brian-D, and Bruce-H) and friends who lived or hail from there (shout-out to Everett-M and his family) that I would no doubt end up with a crazy-full schedule with awesome restaurants and out-of-the-way awesome things to see or do.

  1. Anytime you want to hit the road on a Friday after work and take a weekend trip to Philly, let us know. We love it there! And yes, cheese steaks are not the same outside of Philly, period.

    And I'd avoid Miami, its not as great as it sounds on paper. Plenty of better options in Florida :)
