I don’t know about you but I am constantly making lists in my head all the time. I am so OCD it’s unreal, LOL!! I have lists of groceries, things I need to do, blog posts I want to write, and places I want to go! Oh the places I want to go… #DrSeuss
Today I wanted to share one of those lists with you…my top 10 US Cities I want to visit!! I have a goal to see every one of the 50 states and I have made pretty good progress but there are a few cities in states I want to visit that I never have and as you can see I have a lot of states left, but I think I’m about halfway there??
New Orleans. My family lives about 2 miles from the Louisiana state line so I have been to Louisiana about a million times but I have never been to the southern part of the state! I have always wanted to go to New Orleans but I think will be more of a fall trip?? I want to walk on Bourbon Street, eat beignets and drink cafe’ au lait at Café du Monde, I want to ride on a streetcar, and I want to visit a haunted cemetery.
Charleston. I have been obsessed with Charleston for about as long as I can remember. I have read a lot of books that were based there and I am almost ashamed to admit that I love the show Southern Charm. I think it is a city rich in southern history and fabulous architecture and I want to go soooo bad!!
Savannah. I have wanted to go to Savannah for as long as I can remember. It is also a city rich in southern history and charm and I heard it was haunted!! It is also close to Tybee Island, another city I want to go to!! I would love to go and eat at Lady and Sons and walk around the gorgeous parks. One day…
Chicago. I have been looking at taking a Chicago trip for a while now…it is actually not too far away by train and I have been dying to take a train trip!! I think I want to do Chicago in the summer and I want to see a show while I am there. I also want to see a Cubs game at Wrigley Field and see the Skydeck! I say see the sky deck because I think I would be too scared to actually step on it. LOL!
St. Louis. St. Louis actually isn’t too far from me!! I want to go see the arch and tour the Budweiser Brewery!! I would also love to go to the City Museum because I have heard it is amazing!!
Salt Lake City. I have always heard great things about SLC, doesn’t this pic just make it look magical??
Maui. I want to go to the beach!!! This would definitely be a winter destination since that is when I most need the beach and really I would love to go to any of the Hawaiian islands but I have always heard amazing things about Maui!
Orlando. I have been to Florida multiple times but have never been to Disney World. I am probably the biggest Disney fan who has never been to any Disney park. Ugh. I want to go sooooo bad!! One day! And let’s be real, I will probably go to Universal while I am in town and see Harry Potter too.
Seattle. I am about to go complete white girl on you and tell you one of the main reasons I want to go to Seattle is to go to Pike Place and see the very first Starbucks. I also want to see the Space Needle and let my inner Grey’s Anatomy fan girl nerd out. Just saying…
Los Angeles. LA…where dreams are made. Or something like that. I really just want to go and see movie stars!! HA!! But really though…
So that is my list of the top 10 US cities I want to see!!
How many US states have you been to??
What US cities are on your top 10 list to see??
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I was in Savannah for the first time last summer and LOVED it. I can’t wait to get back there someday.
We are saving to go to Maui this summer and I am hoping we can get the money together to do it! There are SO many places to check out that I don’t think one life time will get me everywhere I want to go.
Teresa Kunberger says
I so want to travel the world! This is amazing!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
I might be biased as a Georgia girl, but I think Savannah is the most beautiful city in the country. I’ve never found another city to match it.
I have always wanted to go to New Orleans! I think it looks like so much fun!
Liz Mays says
I’d really like to do more traveling in the NW United States. Seattle sounds like an awesome place. I’d definitely bring my daughter along!
Terri Ramsey Beavers says
I happen to agree with above about Savannah. I live in Georgia and when I go anywhere, it’s either Savannah or Helen. I love both equally but for different reasons.
Miles L. says
Wow! The United States is really filled with beautiful cities. I would really love any of these cities.
Chubskulit Rose says
Same here, my husband said it seems execcessive lol. It’s good to have a list though. My daughter’s wish is to visit all states before she turn 18.
I have heard a lot of great things about New Orleans. I would love to visit it one day.
You definitely need to make it out West. Phoenix is on your list, but if you come from November – April it is amazing here!
I have only been to Seattle and LA. I love Seattle, but I’m “meh” about LA. It’s not super fun if you’re not rich. lol I NEED to go to Savannah and Charleston.
Ann Bacciaglia says
These are all great places to visit. I have always wanted to go to New Orleans. I am hoping to get there in the new year.
I’ve only been to NYC but it was so wonderful. I would love to go anywhere in the West coast.
I would love to see the rest of the country as well. I grew up on the East coast but now live in the Midwest. I would love to take my daughter to see where I grew up!

I’ve always wanted to visit Chicago. It looks like a beautiful city to visit during the summer.
April Mims says
I just scheduled a long weekend trip to New Orleans. I’m not sure how I’ve never been there before but I can’t wait.
Ron Leyba says
Can’t miss LA. Love that place too! Too many attractions and destinations.
Charleston really is a lovely city. It’s an ideal vacation spot. My husband and I were talking about visiting next year.
Crystal Lopez says
Travel for me is such a dream. I can relate with you on a bunch of these to visit and put on my bucket list!
Janet H. says

Too funny, but except for Maui, those are the cities that I would love to visit too. And I would add New York. I definitely can’t wait to visit New York! :)
