The following travel destinations have been reviewed in our blog. Just click on the name of the destination to be taken directly to the post in order to learn more about the destination and exactly what it has to offer.
The list is first divided alphabetically by state and then by city. Destinations in another town but within 60 miles of a city or major metropolitan area will be listed under that city/area. This will let you know what can easily be visited while in that particular area. Anything farther than that will have its own listing.
Finally, to assist with planning, each listing has been categorized as follows: AMUSEMENT PARK / ANIMAL ADVENTURE / HIKING / HISTORICAL MARKER / MUSEUM / OUTDOOR ACTIVITY / SCENIC DRIVE / SHOPPING / SPORTS. At times a destination or venue may fall into more than one category.
