Favorite U.S. Cities
If you are new to this blog then one thing you should know about me is that I absolutely love to travel! I will look for any excuse to explore a new city and see what all they have to offer, but there are five cities in the U.S. that I don’t mind going back to again and again. So, I wanted to take a few weeks and share those cities with you.
Today I’ll give you a little bit of an overview and then for the next five weeks I have some great guest posts lined up from bloggers who are lucky enough to live in these five cities. These bloggers are going to share where to eat, what to do, things you can’t miss…and all from a local’s perspective! Y’all are not going to want to miss this series!
And now on to my favorite cities…if you click on the name of the city you can take a tour of that city! In no particular order, I love…
San Diego – I live in Southern California so I don’t really have any weather complaints, but San Diego takes perfect weather to a whole new level! I feel very fortunate that I can be in San Diego in less than 90 minutes!
Nashville – Not only is Nashville home to country music (which I LOVE!), but it is also home to so many of my favorite authors and inspirational people…it truly is a city teeming with talent!
Chicago – From a green river on St. Patrick’s Day, to strolling down Michigan Ave, to Navy Pier, I just absolutely love the vibe Chicago offers.
Denver – I know I said there was no particular order, but Denver has really stolen my heart! If you love food, Denver has a lot to offer. And don’t forget about that little mountain range just outside of the city where you can get your hearts fill of outdoor activities!
Philadelphia – This one might not make it to the top of everyone’s favorite cities list, but my seven years living in Philadelphia after college, left me in love with the City of Brotherly Love. Not only does Philly have a lot to offer on it’s own, but it’s prime location on the East Coast makes so many other cities really accessible from Philly.
This year I am trying to get to all five! I’ve already been to Nashville, San Diego and Denver, and I’m working on scheduling trips to Chicago and Philadelphia…any year where I can get to all five is a successful year in my book!
Don’t forget to come back next Thursday for a fabulous post on all things San Diego!
What are your favorite cities to visit in the U.S.?
I have 2 favorite cities, Pittsburgh, PA and Savannah/Tybee Island, GA. I grew up just outside of Pittsburgh and everything about the Steel City is home. Savannah is where my husband and I basically proposed to each other/decided to get married 🙂 Both are just so full of culture that you can always find more to explore…I think I need to take a trip…
Savannah is on my list of places I’d absolutely love to visit and you make me want to go sooner rather than later! I lived in Philadelphia for 7 years and never took the opportunity to explore Pittsburgh, I’ll need to do that soon!
These are actually some of my fav cities too! I also love Seattle, and of course my city – Richmond!
Seattle is also really great! I’ve only been to Richmond once or twice and only for a couple of hours…I need to add it to my list of places to check out!
I love going to Nashville. There is just so much to see. It never gets old to me either. As for these other places I’m scared to fly alone,haha. So I haven’t been too many places, I like to drive. I hope your having a great Thursday.
I’m all about a good road trip! My recent trip to Denver was a road trip…despite being about 1000 miles each way!
I grew up just outside Pittsburgh, too — in W.Va. And live near Savannah now. If you haven’t visited Charleston, S.C., you need to add it to your list of places to visit. It was ranked #1 city this year, and it’s the gtreatest!
Now my list of cities to visit is growing even longer! If y’all can tell me about cupcake shops in the area then I’m definitely coming!

If you make it to Chicago, let me know so we can meet up! Some of my favorite cities are Seattle, Charleston SC, San Diego and believe it or not, when I moved from Seattle to Chicago we drove and there was like 10 places I wanted to stop and see while I was in South Dakota; due to time constraints and driving a U-haul with my car being towed to the back, I didn’t get to stop.
I will definitely let you know if the Chicago trip gets booked!

Philly baby! Since I hail from Wilmington, DE, the Philadelphia area will always be home.
