I thought today I would share with you some places in the US where I would love to visit at some point in my life. All of the places are places I would want to visit for various different reasons and I think there's quite a big difference between them all which is definitely a good thing. Me and my cousin were talking about places we want to visit in the US recently and we both realised that three of mine are not super close to each other but close enough for a road trip and it's made me realise that I would love to do some sort of road trip in America one day, it's definitely one for the bucket list! So here are my 5 places which I would love to travel to and explore in the US.

First up on my list is Hawaii. I think Hawaii is just the place to go for gorgeous views, water sports like surfing and kayaking and obviously, it's a hot spot for volcanoes too if you're interested in them. You can also rent out some stunning mansions in Hawaii if you're wanting a more luxurious, relaxed stay which is definitely more my cup of tea. If you are a thrill seeker then can visit Kilauea which is most active and apparently "approachable" volcano in the world. I personally don't know if I'm brave enough to visit an active volcano but it would definitely be an exciting once in a lifetime experience. I would also love to go snorkelling in Kealakekua Bay which is on the Kona coast and visit the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu because we all know I love shopping! Another interesting thing about the Ala Moana Center is that it's the 7th largest shopping mall in the US and is the largest open-air shopping centre in the world.

New York
As cliche as it sounds New York, is somewhere I've wanted to visit since I was a little girl, I've always been obsessed with everything New York. I'm actually hoping to visit New York within the next few years depending on where life takes me really. The main things I want to do whilst visiting include having a stroll around Central Park (and maybe visiting the small zoo there) and also visit the Empire State Building because the views from the top are incredible. Times Square is obviously another thing on my to-do list because it's basically the heart of New York. Also, I would love to go on a particular tour... The Gossip Girl tour!  I may be 23 now but I would also love to do the Gossip Girl tour because it's one of my favourite TV shows and I just think it just seems like fun and I think if I didn't do it, I probably would regret it. Obviously, I would have to see The Statue Of Liberty too!

Los Angeles
Next up is LA and yes, I want to visit LA for all of the touristy reasons. I would definitely say Disneyland is the top of my list if I visited. I think If I went to LA and didn't visit Disneyland I would definitely regret it, Disney is such a huge part of my childhood like most people and no matter what age I am if/when I do visit LA I would still go to Disneyland. Santa Monica Pier is another place I would love to visit, I would also love to take photos of it at night when all of the amusement park lights are on because I just think it looks so cool and aesthetically pleasing. I would also love to see and visit the Hollywood Sign just because it would be fun to see it in real life and another place I'd like to visit is the Griffith Observatory because it has such amazing views.

There isn't really any other reason why I want to visit Arizona apart from I really would love to go to the Grand Canyon and just see the sights. I *think* I would do the Grand Canyon Skywalk if I was feeling brave enough. I would also love to see Havasu Falls which is also located in the Grand Canyon because I find waterfalls really relaxing to look at and listen to. Another place that sounds like an interesting place to visit is the Desert Botanical Garden which is located close by too. I think Arizona would be a great place to start a road trip and go from Arizona to Las Vegas and then California. It would definitely be an exciting trip and each destination has a variety of things to do.

Las Vegas
Last on my list is Las Vegas and the reason why I would love to visit is that it's basically a 24-hour town so no matter what time you arrive or leave your hotel room, there's always something to do and somewhere to go. I also love that it's basically a fantasy town really and the lights just make everything look so mesmerising. The main priority on my places to see in Las Vegas would definitely The Strip. I think would be silly to go to Las Vegas and not visit the Strip so that would definitely be a must on my to-do list. I also love that it's within driving distance of Arizona and LA as I've mentioned above and I like that you can escape the madness if it gets a little too much and go for a scenic drive around Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
