There are just so so many things to see here in the U.S! I have traveled abroad and enjoyed it thoroughly, and would like to see a lot more, but frankly, a lot of U.S. destinations are a lot higher on my list.
I am dying to visit my cousin who lives in Florence, Italy. And I can think of about 407 other foreign destinations I would love to go to. (I love to travel.) But if I had the time & the dough & the opportunity, I’d first go to
-And many other places I can’t think of at the moment.
Within the last 4 years, I’ve been to:
-San Francisco & Yosemite
-Grand Canyon & other parts of Arizona
-All over central Idaho
And among my favorite short-trip destinations:
-Washington D.C. (4 hour drive)
-New England Coast, especially Maine (4-10 hour drive)
-Western Massachusetts and Vermont (4-8 hour drive)
-The Hamptons (3 hour drive)
I guess my point is that many Americans, even those who are comfortable with foreign travel, who have the time, and who have the money (the Grand Canyon and Idaho trips were very expensive and time-consuming) prefer to visit U.S. destinations.
