My Top 25 USA & Mexico Travel Experiences at 25 (Photos)

Formerly, I was an exotic destination snob. I only wanted foreign cultures, anything and everything very different from myself. Then it happened. In 2015, I road tripped from Los Angeles, California to Vancouver, Canada – -through California, Arizona, Utah, Oregon, and Washington. I road tripped Georgia and Tennessee, and through Florida. I got my snow bunny on in Aspen, Colorado. I also did New York and Pennsylvania three times.

So when I look at my world travel bucket list, I can’t help but consider the incredible destinations in Uh-Meri-ca! I get not everyone can quit their job and travel overseas. If you’re looking for domestic alternatives to swapping the travel bug, check these out!

Again, I haven’t done everything in the USA & Mexico, however, I’ve done a lot and can recommend these experiences.

I have a lot more to see! Stay tuned on TravelBreak 🙂
