Haven’t decided on a destination for your 2017 vacation yet? Well let me offer up four beautiful destinations right here in the US to consider this year. No matter the season these places offer a wide range of activities to explore and relax.
St George, Utah
The southwest is always a great area to explore in the US. The St. George, UT area boasts 4 star resorts where you can unwind and relax or beautiful camping grounds around Zion National Park, if you really want to unplug on your vacation. If you are looking for more of an adventure during your trip, then check out the hiking, ATVing and even skydiving thats available all in one unique place.
Asheville, North Carolina
Asheville is not a place people often think of as a vacation destination, but after staying overnight there in 2011, I feel I need to spread the word. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville boasts both beautiful views during outdoor activities while housing historical sites. Want to take a trip back to the Gilded Age? Take a tour of the remarkable Biltmore Estate.
There are many opportunities for foodie’s to get their fill and shoppers to find unique buys as well.
Big Sky, Montana
Blue Sky, Montana is still on my bucket list. It’s a great place to visit in both summer and winter (skiing anyone?!). In the warmer months it offers hiking, zip-lining, rock climbing and white water rafting. The scenery in both seasons looks amazing and it’s under an hour drive to Yellow Stone National Park, if you are looking to cross another one off your list. Anyone else want to get to as many national parks as possible?!
Most people think of Nashville when thinking of a southern city to visit but I’m here to make a case for Memphis! You didn’t think I forgot the foodies out there did you?!
One of my best girlfriends has lived in Memphis for over 5 years now and I’ve been so lucky to visit her twice. Both times were filled with great food, interesting places to see and extra friendliness I wasn’t expecting. Beale Street and Graceland have magic of their own, but I was partial to the food. From the oldest cafe in Memphis, Arcade Restaurant, to The Majestic Grille and Rendezvous, the food was amazing. If you are looking for a spot to explore some history, enjoy a night out on the town and eat all the tasty BBQ you can, then Memphis is your destination.
What destinations do you have planned for 2017?? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
Thinking about these four destinations today is seriously curing my wanderlust 🙂
