What is your favorite place you have visited in the United States?
I had the pleasure of living in the state of Texas, for about one year, in 1984. At that time, I had visited a state park near Houston, Texas. The name of the park was "Los Brasos (the arms) State Park".
This was a state operated "park" ... but was actually a wild place. It was a bona-fide live swamp. The mist rose upward from the ground early in the morning to expose hanging moss from the trees. I had to stop my vehicle on the road several times to allow armadillo and deer heards cross the road. And as I entered the park, I was faced with a large redwood sign that boldly stated "BEWARE OF LIVE ROAMIING ALLIGATORS".
You could actually visit the park and never have to get out of your vehicle if you did not want to. Certainly not a place for the more faint of heart, but it was a definite "must" for the more adventurous individual. There was a charge of only a couple of dollars to get into the park, you could spend the entire day there, and it was an adventure of a life time.
In the United States.. hm.. Well. I'd have to say Pensacola beach.. Its a little island type place close to Florida. It's not commercial and its all pretty much national park reservations.. so the beaches are amazing. I went with my good mate Anna... and One night we were just sitting on this random beach.. I was just walking aimlessly.. The sun was beginning to set.. ( yes I know major cliche) You know the way the sunlight glints off the water, it was so pretty. American Girl by Tom Petty came on my I-pod.. hahaha. But it was all perfect. In that moment, I felt infinite. So that's why its my favourite place.
Take a pause from the tedious routine and break the monotony by travelling to Iceland, a place of soul-stirring natural beauty. It is necessary to have a break from your everyday schedule and eliminate stress from your life. Now is the time to fulfill your travel goals and Iceland is one such place that could be topmost in your list. A breathtaking country that needs to be explored at your own pace.
Puerto Rico!!! It's sooo beautiful and secluded. The jungles are amazing and the beaches are even better! And all the fruit stands and small vendors are the best, everything is sooo fresh. I didn't go in a walmart the whole month of being there! haha To me, that's a miracle! lol It's definitely somewhere I think everyone should visit at least once!
Waikiki Beach, Hawaii. Even though it's a part of the United States, I like how Hawaii is so removed from the consumer-based society of America, and still sticks to a lot of its culture.
Never been there =(
Based on what I know though, I kind of like Chicago. Cosmopolitan, rich history (parts of which are not so nice), extensive suburbs, brave continental weather
pheonix, arizona. the grand canyon was breathtaking...but non us would definatley be cuba or ireland. :)
hey the grand canyon isn't in Phoenix, Arizona...its like 2 hours north of Phoenix haha
Never been there..hahah I hope one day I will.. I really want to...
