Ever since I was doing research for a project about the Boone Trace and Wilderness Road, I have wanted to see Cumberland Gap. It has recently begun the process of being restored to what it would've looked like in Daniel Boone's day. I think it would be so neat to see the "gateway" to the west from Virginia.
2. Mt. Rushmore
I have wanted to see Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills region ever since I was little. To me, it still has that Wild West appeal. We're actually thinking about taking a vacation here this summer!
3. Key West
Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite authors and he made Key West his home for a large part of his life. It's a tropical paradise that I would love to visit one day...but maybe as a cruise stop. Not sure how I feel about that super long bridge to get there!
I have wanted to go to Savannah for awhile now. The architecture is amazing!
Same thing with Charleston, it's doable on a trip to Savannah too!
We were going to go to Burlington, VT and take a day trip to Mount Washington to go to the summit on the cog train as our anniversary trip the last year we lived in PA. Unfortunately, that didn't happen due to a work conflict. I still really really want to go though!
I have wanted to visit Mackinac Island since I was a kid. Being from Northeast Indiana, everyone goes here at least once, yet I've never been. It was almost our vacation last summer.
Ever since learning about the giant redwoods in elementary school, I have wanted to see them in person. I mean, how cool would it be to drive through a tree!
9. New Orleans
Mardi Gras and Dixieland Jazz...nuff said :-)
