The chalks are up and the wheels are rolling. You’ve checked off your pre-trip checklists and you’re heading out to the open road. Putting in the hours and miles to reach your destination and get ready for some summertime fun. The getaway car is in tow, the kids are all nestled in for the journey looking at all of the sights as they pass by.
How many of those sights have you passed that may hold hidden treasure inside of them? History, little known facts about a place or small town, interesting people are all part of that locations appeal and charm. You never know what you’ll learn when you stop for a while and begin to sniff around and smell the roses.
So I decided to put in a few places for fun to help spark wisdom, begin to get the wheels turning for next year’s adventure, or even as a side detour if you are reading this before you make your departure.
Sure there are the great and famous places like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, The Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Walt Disney World, The Golden Gate Bridge, Disneyland, The statue of Liberty, Times Square and many other historic icons for adventurers and travel enthusiasts.
There are so many places to see in the USA that I could write an entire novel from the paces I just mentioned and you could spend an entire year on the road and still not uncover all of the history in all of these places. To make your next planning adventure a bit more exciting here is a list of some of the top destinations by city in the USA. Just look from California to New York and every where in between.
Destinations like Chicago, Orlando, Seattle just to name a few are tourist friendly and leave you with nothing short of fun and excitement. Seattle’s Space Needle
Niagara Falls is another great and famous destination
if you are looking for a little less tourist travel destinations try a unique destination like Cabazon, CA where the biggest dinosaur gift store exists. My wife and I have been there a couple of times and it’s small for sure but the memories are awesome. Where else can you actually crawl up the belly of a dinosaur?
Now for the weirdness of our country. From white albino squirrels to Carhenge and all points in between. What about the Desert of Maine as a weird tourist attraction or the Oregon Vortex? These are surely places that will leave a lasting impression on your memory box collection or the Darwin Twine Ball exhibit.
