13 Jan Bucket list 2017: Places to visit in the USA!
As I told you in this article last week, I don’t set any new year resolutions. However, I do like to make a lot of new travel plans. As I live in the USA, I made a list of the most amazing places in this country that I would love to visit in 2017. As always, my list is quite extensive (a girl can dream right) but I limited myself in this article to my top 6 of places to visit in the USA..! Which places are on your bucket list? And do you have any recommendation / additions to this list?
A little cliche, but every woman dreams of a tropical paradise. And besides beautiful beaches, good cocktails and breathtaking sunsets, this island is also rich to culture and adventure. Who wouldn’t want to go hiking up the Haleakala Crater, driving the back road to Hala or snorkelling at the Molokini Crater while you hear the winter wales singing. Maui has absolutely no shortage of scenic moments and is the epicentre of Hawaiian Regional cuisine. What else could a girl wish for?!

Charleston is rich to history and bursting with Southern charm. Someone told me that it almost feels like it’s suspended in time, thanks to its prewar architecture and surrounding plantation landscapes. The best way to explore is to grab a bike (loved by the Dutchies) through the historical boroughs. At night you can discover the local restaurants, nightlife and ghost tour (!!!). Ohhh, I can’t wait to play the tourist in this city in South Carolina.
Yellowstone National Park
My uncle told me that Yellowstone National Park was one of the most and unique places he had ever been! It isn’t very easy to get here, but once you enter this Park, it will be absolutely worth it. Besides watching the famous Old Faithfull Geyser erupting 135 feet every 92 minutes, you can also spot Yellowstone bears, jump into a hot spring, go rafting, fishing and hiking as well as immerse yourself in Native American Culture.
My husband and I love to go on city trips! And Chicago, which is the third-most populous city in the USA, is on top of our list. Not in the winter, but in summer time. Because that the best time to visit this metropool in the Mid-West. From what we understand is the food and drinks-culture alone worth a trip to this city. Moreover, it has the world’s best museums as well as architecture that awes. And did someone say shopping? The buzzing city with energy, offers it all!
Lake Tahoe in winter
We visited Lake Tahoe last summer, which was already very impressive and gorgeous. However, imagine a clear blue lake, surrounded by snow where ski-fanatics come down to enjoy their holidays. To me, it really can’t get any better, so I can’t wait to go here!
The Horse Shoe Bend is another Mother Nature’s little tricks in the beautiful world of National parks in the West of the USA. Just like the Grand Canyon, sandstone and slick rock resulted in some of the weirdest, and neatest formations. It is a horseshoe-shaped zigzag in the Colorado River, Arizona. Isn’t this the most beautiful sight ever?!
