An online friend of mine is basically doing a "tour" of North America. Her mother passed away at home a few weeks ago from cancer. Since my friend was her mom's primary caregiver, she's taking a month off to visit friends across the country and recharge. Reading her emailed updates on where she is and who she is visiting got me thinking. Where are your favorite places to go or someplace you went to that you absolutely loved and why? This could be from your childhood or as an adult. For me, I think my two favorites have been New York City and Vancouver, BC. I've been to NY twice...once when I was about 11 and once when I was 18. When I was there as a child, I was with my mom and we visited my cousin. We did the touristy stuff......Statue of Liberty (LOTS of stairs! LOL), Bronx Zoo, rode the subway...stuff like that. When I was there at 18, I was visiting my college boyfriend during Christmas break. He lived in New Jersey, went home for break and I got to go out for a week. We covered a lot that week but my favorite were the days we spent in the city. We went to Trump Plaza, saw the "famous" outdoor skating rink, the big Christmas tree and took a carriage ride around that area. We also, courtesy of his dad, went to dinner and saw a show. The Vancouver trip was just last month and I had a ball! The town is wonderful with all sorts of things to do and see. Plus the friend that I went to see is fabulous! (Actually...that's where my traveling friend is right now and I'm jealous!!) So what about you? What has been your favorite destinations and what did you see and do?
