Traveling can be a super fun and enriching experience if you know the right places to go.
If you’re feeling the urge to hop on a plane or take a road trip, you’re in the right place.
When traveling, having an idea of the city that could best match your needs. Is exactly what can make or break your trip.
So, what are some of the best cities to visit in the United States? Let’s find out!
1) Phoenix, Arizona
Short on traveling cash but still want to travel? Phoenix Arizona is the place for you!
Whether you love going out to nature, listening to your favorite podcast, and taking on the world. Or simply just perusing a museum of your liking. Phoenix can provide you with plenty of entertainment on a budget.
Hotel stays and plane tickets to Phoenix are cheaper than most cities. And the views? To die for.
2) Charlotte, North Carolina
If you’re looking to ease your way into the city experience, Charlotte, North Carolina is for you.
The beating heart of Charlotte’s main “city” portion has tons of fun things to do. One of those fun things being: the motorized scooters.
On just about every street corner, you can find a scooter to take you around the city. There are also really nice rooftop restaurants. And some nice, artsy areas just outside of the city.
Be sure to take the train to get the true Charlotte experience. You can even use the train as a way to take a break and de-stress.
3) New York City, New York
Visiting the “city that never sleeps” can have some major benefits. Not only can you go out and have fun shopping, eating, and observing during the day.
But, you also get the opportunity to go out and claim the city at night.
There are countless boutiques and art museums you can visit in New York City. It’s a rather progressive place that has plenty of vegan eateries among other things.
Not to mention the history that is in, and around NYC. The Statue of Liberty is obviously a huge part of New York’s, and America’s, history.
If you visit NYC, I highly recommend that you also save some time for exploring Upstate New York as well!
The mountain views and old towns, such as Woodstock, are very chic and worth taking the time to explore.
4) Virginia Beach, Virginia
Virginia Beach, Virginia (VB) is also a top place to visit if you ever get the chance. VB is a rather small city just on the coast of Virginia. It sits right on the North Carolina border.
Virginia Beach is the perfect place to go if you only want to experience a little bit of “city life”. In VB, you have the opportunity to go places like Town Center, Strawbridge, and the Oceanfront.
But, you also have nice parks and hiking trails to escape to if the city ever gets to be too much. And, don’t forget the beach! If you visit the Oceanfront, be sure to take a picture with King Neptune’s Statue!
5) Kitty Hawk, North Carolina
Speaking of the beach. If you are a self-diagnosed “beach bum” who wants to have a whole vacation to visit the water and walk on the sand, Kitty Hawk is the place for you!
Kitty Hawk is one of multiple towns that is located in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It’s home to many nice beach houses that you can rent.
Kitty Hawk also has a nice selection of restaurants. Ranging from seafood to just plain southern comfort food.
If you go at the right time of year, you may even find that you get a nice big section of the beach to yourself! Between tanning and swimming, your days can be filled with relaxation at Kitty Hawk.
6) Richmond, Virginia
Well, back to Virginia we go! Richmond, Virginia is an excellent place to peruse when you want a sort of fun, quirky experience. With lots of “hole in the wall” eateries and wall art, who wouldn’t be drawn to such a cute area?
Of course, Richmond isn’t all trains and city buildings. It also has some beautiful parks to explore. One of those in particular being Belle Isle.
Belle Isle really is a treat to visit. You can bring your animals and have a nice hiking day. If you go to Belle Isle when it’s warm outside, you can go wade in the park’s natural water feature.
What if you don’t feel like getting wet? Don’t worry! You can always practice your rock hopping skills by “jumping” from rock-to-rock over the water.
