Two weeks ago we brought you our first installment of “Places to Visit: US Edition” in order to help you get started planning a spring break to remember. This week we’re back with the follow-up to that post and we’re bringing you another awesome list of places across the United States. From tropical travels in the Florida Keys to nature excursions in Yellowstone, you’ll be itching to pack your bags and get going!
Key West, FL – The spectacular thing about the Florida Keys, is the complete abundance of activities available in one spot. As the southernmost place in the continental United States, Key West has something for everyone, from eco-tourism and underwater adventures to relaxing beach days and shopping trips. There’s a reason the Beach Boys sang about this paradise!
New Orleans, LA – Perhaps the most interesting part of this southern city is the range of cultures from which it draws its influences – Caribbean, African, American and European. So whether you come to help rebuild in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to experience the music and jazz-filled nightlife, or take part in the wild Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday celebrations, you’ll be sure to remember your trip for years to come!
Yellowstone National Park – As the ultimate haven for any nature lover, Yellowstone sits in the pristine wilderness of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. Bicycling, boating, hiking – even llama-packing are possible activities for those who venture out. Don’t forget your camera, you won’t want to miss a shot of Old Faithful or any other exciting points of interest!
Columbus Zoo, Columbus OH – Rated the Top Zoo in America by the USA Travel Guide, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio features over 7,000 animals and has recently grown to include a water and amusement park and golf resort. With reasonable admission rates and tons to see and do, any animal lover will be more than satisfied with all the zoo has to offer!
Chicago, IL – The Windy City is home to some of the most exciting things to do in America! Release your inner shopper on the Magnificent Mile or check out some art and architecture in Millenium Park. From the Skydeck to Wrigley Field, TripAdvisor touts Chicago as “everyone’s kind of town.” Don’t miss it!
