If you like beer you have to try this place out.
Just an hour-and-a-half north of Chicago on Lake Michigan, the city is best known for its old-school beer scene. It’s the home of Miller and you can still take a tour of the old brewery. (I don’t know about you, but beer is one of my best friends). It is pure kitsch meets day-drinking, so this is always a good idea!
The food is also one for the books as Milwaukee’s food scene is stellar. Imagine a mix of migrant-American fare combined with European comfort foods and a deep love of locally-grown and seasonal treats.
NOW DOESN’T THAT SOUND GOOD?!
Beautiful Seattle kind of has it all, it's beautiful, alive and so full of stunning scenery. It’s a bounty for nature lovers (so if you are a nature lover like me, then go go go, it's amazing ) — with access to National parks, inland seas, lakes, wilderness, and Alpine mountains. There is just so much beauty to see.
Also, it’s a music lover’s paradise with some of the best venues for rock in the country. Then there’s the wine. (You know that was coming!). It’s hard to beat Seattle when it comes to wine, thanks to the heavy agriculture on the eastern side of the state and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
Kansas City is a big city with a small-town feel. It’s also cheap enough to hook you into staying awhile. The bar, baseball, and meat-centric food scene all deserve a look. There’s a great burgeoning street art scene and… did I mention it’s inexpensive?
There is one spot you can not miss and that is Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque, according to my meat-loving friends. Kansas City barbecue it all about low-and-slow with a lot of smoke. The meat is rubbed with a dry mix of salts and spices and then served with a tomato-based barbecue sauce that’s usually tangy, sweet, and spicy.
Do you feel like going on a time travel with me? Well, Savannah feels like a place from a different time. The humidity in the air, the Spanish moss billowing in the breeze, and the surrounding marshy flats leading to the ocean are a transformative corner of America. There’s a beauty to the place — both cultural and natural — that draws you in and tempts you. It's a place you will never regret going too.
Have you been to any of these? Let us know what you think!
