I found this Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews through Lydia and thought I'd give it a go! The prompts look interesting. You can check out the weekly prompts at the bottom of this post.
This week's topic is: 5 Best Places I've Visited
The very first place that comes to mind is DISNEY WORLD! I've been to Disney World twice in my 42 years. I live in Pennsylvania so it isn't right around the corner for me. It entails a 2 hours plane ride or a 16 hour drive! The first time I went was for my honeymoon in 2000 (we flew). The second time was to take our daughters in 2012 (we drove). The first was romantic, the second a bit stressful but both were amazing adventures!
The second place for me would be NIAGARA FALLS. We drove the six hour drive in our mini-van for our tenth anniversary in 2010. We took my parents along as well as the girls. We rented a little bungalow in Olcott, NY (about 30 minutes from Niagara Falls) and spent the week exploring the area. We had plenty to see and really enjoyed this trip!
Third for me would be DAYTONA BEACH. My Aunt Mary and her family live there so I've visited a handful of times even though, once again, it is quite a trek from Pennsylvania. We have gone to the races, the beach, and visited Ponce de Leon Lighthouse. Climbing to the top of the lighthouse is one of my favorite memories.
The fourth best place I've visited is GETTYSBURG, PA. The first time I visited was in the 5th grade with my class. It was the very first time I was on a charter bus :) I absolutely LOVE history so I was amazed by the battlefields and the museum. I've since visited maybe 3 or 4 more times and always learn something new.
I had to really think about a fifth place because for the most part we stick pretty close to home and love to camp and rent cabins in Pennsylvania State Parks. However, I'm going to go way back to 1996 and VIRGINIA BEACH, VA for my Senior Trip. It was really my first time away from home and my parents. I was a rebel and got my second ear piercing. (My first ear piercing was when I was 5 years old). We went to Water Country USA, Busch Gardens and the Boardwalk. It was only a 3 day trip but we had a blast!
So, what are the 5 best places you've visited? I'd love to know so I can put them on my bucket list :)
