Bucket List Things: Sharing My Must-See’s in the 50 States

When it comes to travel, I typically opt to go international. Although I live in the states, I’ve yet to explore much of it. Traveling around the United States is usually much more expensive, which deters me from doing so. Another reason? I love immersing myself in other cultures and attempting to get around in languages I’m unfamiliar with, which can’t be done here. I’m aware that each state offers something different, and the country is extremely culturally diverse. At least, that’s what I’ve heard. I anticipate seeing the differences in people, places, and regions myself. That being said, it’s a goal of mine to visit every U.S. state and territory. Although it isn’t too high on my travel priorities, my goal is to travel to every state within the next few years.

I intend to check at least two of these off of my bucket list this year (hopefully more), so I’ll update you once that comes to fruition. As you’ll notice, I love nature and the outdoors. I prefer to visit natural sites and national parks. Without further ado, here’s my must-see list, U.S. edition.
