I love traveling. It’s one of the most rewarding activities I can engage in, but unfortunately, I don’t have all that much time left to devote to it. Instead of investing in physical things, I like investing in memories. Whether I go to a new place alone or with the rest of my family, I try to keep it real and visit as many locations as I possibly can. Today, I am going to tell you all about my favorite US destinations.
The Grand Canyon has to be on everyone’s top list of vacation places, and that’s because t is a natural wonder. It’s a massive site that gathers about four million visitors on a yearly basis.

The city is charming in spite of the fact that it might come off as being a bit too serious for the outdoorsy adventurer. The nation’s capital is exciting in itself, especially if you are a history buff. It’s the home of the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and last but not least, the incredible Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum.
New Orleans is another location to give some thought to. Even though the city was hit hard by Hurricane Katrina, both the locals, the officials, and loads of celebrities have worked hard on rebuilding it and making it as similar to the original as possible. New Orleans has anything from jazz, rock’n’roll, and other types of music to mysticism and delicious Creole cuisine. Besides, the locals are
