Welcome to White Sands National Monument. Located in the more Southern part of New Mexico, this far out destination is a hidden gem waiting to be explored. So kick off your shoes, grab a sand board, and head to the dunes!
Road trips. Not only are they just a down right blast, they also lead us to many paths less traveled. I love the absolute freedom you have behind a wheel - and especially if they are your home on wheels! Last year we lived out of my parents mini van for 5 days exploring the great Enchanted State, and boy did we have fun! It is hard to choose a favorite adventure from the trip, but this museum defiantly takes place in the top 3…

Oh Connecticut. A beautiful slice of southern New England. I recently got the chance to explore the quaint town of New Haven and got to check out some real beautiful spots.

Let’s face it - New York is full of magical experiences and adventures that make you feel like you are on a movie set, or just living a double life! Walking the High Line to see Hudson Yards is a little bit of both!! Not only is the high line it’s self a must see and do while in the City, it now leads you to one of the coolest structures out East. So if exploring Chelsea, the high line, art galleries, and Hudson Yards wasn’t on your New York list before… it will be now!
When you think of New York - a few symbols might pop into your head. The Empire State, Central Park, a slice of Pizza, and of course the Statue of Liberty! On my last two trips to the city, seeing Lady Liberty has felt like a far out dream. For one, we always come in March and it is FREEZING. So anything by the water just sounds like a nightmare. And two, we are very frugal travelers. Paying $25+ each is just not in the New York budget right now! In doing my free research - I stumbled upon the Staten Island Ferry!
If I know anything about New York - it is that you will never go hungry! With Endless options for food and tasty treats on every corner, it is almost impossible not to spend the whole trip with a fork in hand! Check out Five Eats You Can’t Miss In New York!

So what are the things to do in Milwaukee? I’ll admit I felt my list is not as impressive as it should be, but the Milwaukee Public Market was surly at the top! I originally had it written down as just something to see, but after reading about it on their website my mouth was drooling and we were on our way fro lunch!
This probably is not the first image you had in mind when thinking of Wisconsin. Cheese? Snow? Beer? Maybe those are more reasonable, but a beach!? It was surely not what I expected, I mean it didn’t even show up in my things to do in Wisconsin search! But thank goodness our local friend Jon saved the day.
Growing up I feel truly blessed getting to travel as much as I did. My family loved going on trips together, I got to travel a bunch for swimming, and tagged along every now and then when my Dad had out of state meetings. When I was young I may not have taken each destination into appreciation like I should have or really had the opportunity to explore, so I officially added it to my bucket list to see all fifty states by the time I am fifty!
Welcome to Colorado's own Rocky Mountains National Park! This park ranks in at number 4 on National Geographic's most visited parks so you know I'm not lying when I say it's the beez kneez! The park is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year with hiking, camping, siting see and more all year long - it does not get much better than this.
Welcome to the 5th most popular park in our system! Zion National Park is home to some incredible experiences, so it's no wonder why 4.5 million people came to Zion last year!

Welcome to Red Rock Canyon, one of - if not the, most popular Park in Nevada! This beautiful slice of life sits on the Mojave Desert and is home to stunning hikes, views, climbs, and tortoises! [I know I know, the excitement is real].
Welcome to the iconic Vegas Sign! This landmark has so much history and is the icon of the Las Vegas strip. Sense 1959 people have been coming here to take there picture and throw up some peace signs. ✌🏽
Let's be honest, does one really go to Vegas without the iconic Seven Magic Mountain pic? I think not 😎. This art exhibit has been on my 'insta' bucketlist for a while. I convinced my mom to make a drive with me and let's just say... it's totally worth it.
