Maybe you enjoy the beach. The sun's glow warming your skin and the sand between the toes is more relaxing than any other experience you've had. Perhaps the crisp, clean air during an early morning hike through dense pine trees is more to your liking. Whatever it is you like to do I'm sure that you have a location where you prefer to do your chosen activity more than anywhere else. Maybe you would call this place your favorite or at least one of your favorite places to visit. Of course if your like me you have multiple favorite places and it becomes difficult to choose where you want to spend your time or maybe your problem is that your favorite place and activity isn't the same as your spouse's favorite place (that can be a problem and your on your own on that one.) But there is something that you both agree upon about your favorite places or you wouldn't be going there (at least not together.)
Every place I travel there is something that I love about the trip and of course there is always something that I hate about it too. But we're not here to talk about the negative so let's talk about the fun stuff. As we are all getting to know each other during these early posts I think it would be good for me to throw out a few of our favorite locations to visit if nothing more than to help familiarize you with some of the places you will read about on our blog. Please note that this is just a few of the places that we enjoy and that the list will continue to grow as time goes on.
Yellowstone National Park
There isn't another place around that I've visited more than Moab. I learned to drive on the hundreds of miles of dirt roads surrounding the town and enjoyed it's spectacular red rock landscapes that were sculpted over millions of years of erosion. Here the Colorado River cuts it's way through the canyons traveling south to the Grand Canyon. If the drive into town isn't scenic enough then you need to visit Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Yup they have two parks on their doorstep.
Disneyland, Anaheim, CA
This one's for the kiddies (or the kid inside at least.) My wife and kids love Disneyland. I don't mind it either but standing in line isn't my strong suit. But as far as entertaining the masses no one does it better than Disney. From California Adventure's thrill rides to the easy going boat ride that is Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean there is a ride for everyone (and probably a t-shirt too.) It really is magical place if you let it be.
These are just a few of the places that we frequent. There are way to many to put into one blog post but if I did then this wouldn't be much of a travel blog would it? What are some of your favorite places to visit? Let us know in the comments or on social media. I'm always looking for a good place to go especially if they are off the beaten path.
Come back on Friday as I talk about how we prepare to travel to these places and what our favorite ways to get to a location.
