50 States Bucket List

50 States Bucket List

Recently over the past few years I’ve done a ton of traveling.  One might say I’ve even caught the travel bug because I love visiting different cities, and finding out what makes them similar and what makes them unique.  There’s something exciting and thrilling about exploring a new city from trying out local cuisine and learning about a city’s history or famous people who lived there, to hearing peoples’ accents and learning about the way they live.  After I realized how many states I’d been to in a short amount of time, I decided to set a goal to visit all 50 states by the time I’m 30.  I’m not sure how realistic the goal is considering some states are a little more difficult to get to but we will see! So far I have visited the following:

1.     Birmingham & Montgomery | Alabama

2.     Grand Canyon | Arizona

3.     San Francisco & Los Angeles | California

4.     Denver | Colorado

5.     Fairfield | Connecticut

6.     Newark & Wilmington | Delaware
