This may surprise some, but Boston doesn’t get nearly enough credit for the level of travel-worthiness that it brings to the table. A city that has been so influential in so many ways, it is often taken for granted because NYC is a lot “bigger”. Whether you are interested in the history of the jazz, punk, hip hop, or rock music scene or you have a penchant for Boston’s notorious seafood platter, here is a city you can fall in-love very easily before your vacation is over.
Texas is a true melting pot, once you get past all the country stereotypes, and Austin is the perfect example if you ever go visit. The city is synonymous with music, it hosts so many major events, the most famous of them being South By Southwest Festival. Of course, you can’t say you’ve been to Austin unless you’ve gorged yourself on their famous barbeque and Tex-Mex cuisine.
Not experiencing “The Big Easy” as an American is like neglecting to visit Rio De Janeiro as a Brazilian. The combination of history, culture, and the arts is as good as it gets in New Orleans. The people have faced so much adversity and yet you will never hear a word about it unless you ask them. They know the key to living life is smiling and spreading the love through all that they have to give. Be sure to visit and give a little back to them.
Colorado, in general, has always been a beautiful place to visit in America. It just so happens that they are also home to the best forms of self-medication in the form of beer, wine, and recreational marijuana. Don’t let the grown-up pleasures overshadow the fact that they have some of the best parks, museums, and outdoor fun for the family in the country.
Oregon might not be the state you think of when you’re considering your summer vacation, however, if you’re looking for a place to go where the partygoers are few and the pace is easygoing, Eugene is the perfect place to be. There are a lot of simple joys to be had in Eugene, without having to forfeit your modern amenities like most small towns. We also love the fact that everything is very affordable here, in contrast to its bigger brother in Portland.
