Best Hidden Gems in U.S.

Maybe next year I should take time off on weekends and catch a quick flight to enjoy these beautiful small towns and natural landscapes. I don’t think we have entirely discovered the amazing hidden corners of this country. I always end up in L.A. or Miami or NYC, you know your typical big cities. But when I have more time to get out of the cities a bit, I find myself exploring much more intriguing destinations. Honestly, big city traveling is becoming boring and monotonous. Maybe it’s time to start backpacking to some of these local towns for a quick weekend getaway.

Lately I’ve been running into articles and posts geared towards U.S. traveling. One of those moments where you click on a link & very soon another recommendation pops up for you. And before you know it, you’re on a roll getting brain fed by all these ideas. Yep! That’s how I ran across some of these places and thought, hmmh why not share! You never know one of you might be heading close to some of these cities for your next business trip or an out-of-town family wedding. Wouldn’t hurt to rent a car and explore the surroundings!

Let me know if you have visited any of these places and what are your thoughts. Do you recommend? Where did you stay? How was your stay? What were the people like? Was the dining scene happening? I’m always curious! And never bored!
