I cannot believe that 2019 is almost over, it seriously just flew by. Last year in 2018 I traveled so much and it was amazing, so of course I continued with my travels this year! This year, I was able to cross a new country off of my list and see more of the beautiful United States!
Every year, I take some time to reflect on how that year went; and this year I will continue the tradition of rounding up one photo per trip to hopefully inspire you to travel a little more! Enjoy!
I was in Tucson this last weekend and since we had a later check in to our hotel than usual, my boyfriend and I decided to explore Tucson and enjoy some of the murals I had heard so much about. I ran across this article that outlines 45 amazing Tucson murals and where to find them, chose my favorites, and we set off to find them! There is so much artistic talent in Tucson and I know I will be back to check out the rest of the murals. Let me know if my favorites align with your favorites!
When you think of Phoenix, the first type of food to come to mind is probably Mexican food which we do have a lot of (and it’s all delicious) but there are so many kinds of restaurants in my beautiful city. This post is part of The Ultimate Phoenix Bucket List series and has been a labor of love and includes places I’ve found on my own, via the Internet, and via friends! There is so much to eat in Phoenix, that I’ve had to break it down by category (in alphabetical order).
I’m STILL working on the Ultimate Arizona Bucket List, there is just so much to do here in Arizona…but you already know that I will be including plenty of hiking! One of my favorite mountains in my state is South Mountain, because of how close it is to my house and because of the diversity of the trails that this mountain offers! Check out 10 of my favorite photos to inspire you to hike this epic mountain!
While exploring Minnesota, I stayed at the Courtyard Roseville, the best location for tourists and locals alike. Langton Lake Park which is very close to the Courtyard Roseville was recommended to me by my friend Julie over at the Roseville Visitors Association.
Langton Lake Park is a beautiful, hidden gem and everyone needs to stop by for some peaceful views! There are several nature trails, picnic areas, and different fields for soccer and other sports. Check out six of my favorite photos to inspire you to visit!
Have you ever gone somewhere and been so overwhelmed by the amount of awesomeness radiating from within? That is exactly how I felt when I first stepped into Can Can Wonderland in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
I was told that I needed to add Can Can Wonderland to my bucket list because of the epic mini golf area but when I got there, I realized that there is so much more than golf here.
Can Can Wonderland is a warehouse-like building from 1889 that houses so many entertainment options. Their brochure reads The World’s Greatest Warehouse-Turned Artist-Designed Mini-Golf, Cereal-Malt Shop, Amusement Park, Art Gallery, Variety Show, Music Venue, Eatery, Arcade, Cocktail Bar, Gallery with Secret Pachyderm Speak Easy In The History Of Mankind. That mouthful tells you all that you can find within.
“What is happening here…?” is the question that kept running through my mind as I walked into what I have decided to proclaim The Most Interesting Restaurant/Bar in Minnesota!
What does a ferris wheel, mini golf, incredible cocktails, a gorilla statue, and delicious food have in common? If you ever find yourself in Minneapolis, you’ll realize that you can find all of this at Betty Dangers Country Club, the most interesting restaurant in Minnesota. Check out all of the reasons why this restaurant needs to be your go-to spot for date night, girls nights out, family time, friend reunions, and literally any and all occasions!
I had such a nice stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in beautiful Roseville, Minnesota and would return in a heartbeat. Their breakfast was amazing, the location is perfect for Minnesota State Fair attendees, and Langton Lake is a nice walk or quick run away. Check out my full review and let me know if you are convinced to book a room here next time you’re in Roseville!
Let’s break down all that you get with a stay here!
One of my favorite things about traveling to a new city is that there is always something exciting to do simply because it’s a new experience, and sometimes I am lucky enough to visit a place like Roseville, Minnesota that is perfectly positioned and only 10 minutes away from two major cities: Minneapolis and Saint Paul. This means that I have the opportunity to cross off bucket list items in three different cities instead of just one. I’ve created the Ultimate Minnesota Bucket List so that you can take advantage of all that this great state has to offer. Brace yourself because there is a lot goinghttps://www.visitroseville.com in this article, because Minnesota is that awesome! Enjoy and let me know if I need to add anything to this bucket list!
Ever since I could remember, I have always wanted to go scuba diving and snorkeling because that is what ‘cool’ people in the movies. Once I grew up and finally had the time and funds to cross off snorkeling from my bucket list, I was met with another obstacle: fear. Snorkeling can be pretty scary because humans are not meant to breathe underwater and the ocean is so vast which just multiplies this fear for me. Lucky for me (and for others who feel this way), there is a way to cross off this epic item from your bucket list and it all starts at SeaQuest in Roseville, Minnesota. I had the wonderful opportunity to cross off snorkeling in SeaQuest in a very safe and controlled environment! Check out my video to see my full experience and keep reading to learn how you can cross this item off of your own bucket list!
