Top 5 Favorite Cities You've Ever Visited?

1. Bristol, England: My love for Bristol began when I first moved to this unfamiliar city back in 2013. I hadn't heard much about Bristol before moving, but the more I saw of this unique city the more I fell in love with it.

2. Castle Combe, England: This sleepy village is one of the most beautiful and untouched areas in all of England. Barely spanning one main road, the village of Castle Combe is home to a church, a graveyard, and a pub or two.

3. Bath, England: I know, another city in England. But England has so much to offer it's hard to limit down my favorites! Bath has so much to offer, from Roman ruins to a Jane Austen museum, a trip to Bath is always worth your while!

4. Edinburgh, Scotland: Despite the fact it's freezing most of the time, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Every corner holds historical significance. A trip to Edinburgh feels like you are stepping back in time.

5. San Antonio, Texas: Having lived in San Antonio during my freshman year of college, I grew to love and appreciate the cities unique and fun atmosphere. Whether your drinking a margarita in Market Square or taking a boat ride down the Riverwalk, San Antonio is always fun.

Top 5 Favorite Cities You've Ever Visited?

1) Los Angeles: California! Warmth! Beaches! Surfer boys! And it introduced me to frozen yogurt.

2) San Francisco: More California! I love the Golden Gate Bridge and the city itself is beautiful.

3) New Orleans: Amazing culture, food and music (and scary vampire stories).

4) Minneapolis: I know, random. I went to Minneapolis a few years ago for a blog conference and really loved the city! 

5) Ireland: I'm adding this to my list even though I'm not going until September of this year!

Top 5 Favorite Cities You've Ever Visited?

I'm one of those people who really hasn't traveled outside of my home state... I mean I would love to tell you that I have visited New York and had an Empire State of Mind, but I can't. Instead, I will tell you that I love Chicago, because I love how so many cultures can culminate into one city; that I love New Orleans, because, well duh, New Orleans; and I love Indianapolis, because it has so much to see and do.

Top 5 Favorite Cities You've Ever Visited?

I'm not huge on city travel ... but of the places I've been ...

1) Vienna, Austria. The history, the architecture, and the culture!

2) Dallas, Texas. Close to home, so much to see and do even when you live within an hour or two, it makes for a lot of daytrips!

3) Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Gateway to Grand Teton National Park (and the south end of Yellowstone National Park) + the scenic views from this (expensive) Old West town make me want to go back permanently if I could afford to live there.

4) Moab, Utah. Gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks as well as Dead Horse Point State Park. Small town feel and so so many scenic views!

5) Colorado Springs, Colorado. Of all the places I've traveled, this is on the very short list of places I'd up and move to if I ever leave Texas. Near Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods as well as an hour from Denver. Olympic Training Center + the Air Force Academy are here as well.
