I keep two different travel bucket lists at all times — the travel bucket list of my wildest dreams (Scotland, Italy, etc.) that I’ll slowly check off and my yearly bucket list that I’m hoping to accomplish that year.
I’m not entirely sure bucket list is the right term exactly for this year’s list because a lot of the places on my list for this year I’ve already been to… BUT so many of them have so much to offer that I’m really looking forward to going back.
I’m so excited to get to experience all these different places and I can’t wait to share.
2019 Travel Bucket List:
I’m going to be only an hour away from Chicago for my best friend’s bridal shower, so I plan on hopping over to Chicago for a few days! The last time I was in Chicago was when I was in elementary school, so I don’t really remember it.
South Bend, Indiana
My best friend lives in the area now so I’ll be visiting South Bend for her bridal shower, bachelorette party, and wedding. I was here for a week last year and there’s so many delicious places to eat and things to see around!
My friend’s bachelorette party is going to be in SW Michigan. I’m excited to explore the area more. Last year I spent a day in the area and it’s so gorgeous! Also, TONS of wineries… Pass the pinot grigio!
Toronto, Canada (and Niagara Falls, Canada & Buffalo, NY)
Toronto has been on my list for a couple years now. It’s only a couple hours drive away from where I live so I can’t believe I haven’t made my way there yet. My sister visited last year as part of her summer-before-college-
Washington, DC & NOVA
I used to live in NOVA (Northern Virginia), and I’ve been itching to go back. I’ve actually been begging my husband to agree to MOVE back there. I really love this area and can’t wait to visit all my old favorites. NOVA is only a metro ride away from DC so two birds with one stone, right?
My husband’s college roommates all live in Cleveland now, so we spend a couple weekends every year here. Cleveland is such a great city and has so much to offer so I really love getting to spend time here!
I went down the rabbit hole last year researching Nova Scotia, and I’ve been dying to travel here ever since! I’d actually love to do a New England road-trip that ends up in Nova Scotia. It looks like such a beautiful place!
New England Road Trip
Well if I’m going to Nova Scotia I’m probably road tripping my way through New England to get there! There are SO many cities in New England that I really can’t wait to see.
If you’ve been to any of these places, let me know what some must-see and do things are! Also, what is on your 2019 Travel Bucket List?
