Seven Places I Want To Visit In The US

I’ve been lucky enough to go to the US on five separate occasions but I feel like I’ve only just scratched the surface with what the country has to offer. Two of my trips have been solely to New York, one included New York, Washington, Philadelphia and Niagara then the other two were longer trips. I’ve done the same four previously alongside Eastern Canada and then an extensive two and a half weeks in California (and Las Vegas). I keep looking at amazing trips through Trek America and wishing I could do every last one of them but here’s my narrowed down US bucket list.


I want to go to Disney World so much it hurts as I am a massive child and want to meet all the Disney characters and go on all the rides. There’s so much to do there and I’d love in an ideal world to go over Halloween cause of the Nightmare Before Christmas stuff. Alongside all the traditional Disney stuff I’d also love to go to the Kennedy Space Centre as everything about space fascinates me.

Los Angeles

I’ve been to LA once before but we literally got about a day and a half in the city and I don’t feel it was anywhere near enough to explore. I didn’t see many of the Hollywood stars which I’d love to do and I’d totally do one of those touristy trips to see all the famous peoples’ houses. Close by to LA you have so many amazing beaches including Santa Monica and Muscle Beach so I’d definitely factor in some relaxation time too.

Nashville and Memphis

Nashville is known as ‘Music City’ and while country might not be my preference of tunes the town looks like it’s steeped in musical history. I’d love to head to the Country Music Hall of Fame which houses the largest collection of country memorabilia. In contrast, Memphis is the birthplace of rock and roll and the home of Elvis Presley in Graceland. My parents have been to both these places and loved it and knowing a lot of the acts that made their first records here (Johnny Cash/ BB King etc) I know I’d love the area. I think if I went here I’d probably do a Trek America tour to take it all in.

Now if I want a more relaxing holiday then Miami is the place I’d pick. There isn’t a whole list of places I’d want to explore and reasons I’d get up at 6am in the morning to cram more into my day. Miami is one of the few places in America to offer subtropical climates and sunshine year round so I’d love to head here during England’s winter and come back relaxed and tanned. With over 150 ethnicities residing in the area there’s such a diversity of dining and food is always one of the top things on my mind when on holiday, actually that’s a lie anytime food;s always on my mind.


Texas might not be the first place people think of when it comes to US holidays but it’s definitely on my bucket list. It’s nickname of ‘The Lone Star State’ comes as a reminder of their struggle for independence from Mexico meaning there’s a lot of history in the area. This also translates into food with lots of meaty BBQ flavours which is enough to tempt me. Houston’s space centre is located here and you can see astronauts training for real and touch a real moon rock, come on this basically makes me an astronaut myself.

San Diego

The main reason for San Diego is because it’s where the largest comic con is located and I’d love love love to go here one year. I’d go every single day, dress up and spend so much money I’d need another suitcase to come home. There’s also loads of beaches and the largest urban park in America so plenty of time to relax after the fun of comic con.

New York

I could harp on about New York until I am blue in the face but I will never get sick of the city. It’s one of the few places I’d happily jet off to completely on my own as I know the area, feel comfortable there and know there would be enough to do that I wouldn’t get bored. I definitely want to head back but who knows when my next trip might be, perhaps for New Year sometime?!

Where would you love to visit in the US?

    I love your list and have been lucky enough to visit most of these places except for New York and Texas. California is amazing, I would go back tomorrow. You must do a pacific coast highway tour if you do. San Diego was lovely, I preferred it to San Francisco. New Orleans is fabulous too, and also Key West. I would love to go to New York and Boston with Cape Cod one day and also Texas.

    Such a fun list! Memphis would be somewhere on my list too if I was taking my parents as my Dad too is a big Elvis fan 🙂
    The main places I’d visit if I went to the US (I won’t because I refuse to fly ever again haha) would more likely be attractions rather than states/cities. I’d want to go to Walt Disney’s childhood town of Marceline, the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon and Mt Rushmore! haha Just a small list 😉

    I wouldn’t have thought of a few of those places. The US isn’t really on my wish list. I prefer Asia or South America, but my boyfriend really wants to go to the US.
