Places that I Want To Visit In 2018

Happy belated 2018!! I can not believe that it’s a new year, which means that new blog posts are coming. One thing that I immensely enjoy about starting a new year is creating a list of places you want to visit during that year and then at the end of the year, you are able to look back to see where you went and identify if you visited where you planned on traveling to.

All righty! Let’s start this new year off.

1. Corpus Christi, TX

The top places to visit in Corpus Christi according to Trip Advisor are The U.S.S. Lexington, The Texas State Aquarium, and Padre National Seashore. I’ve been to two of the top three places to explore in Corpus, but hopefully this year, I can visit The U.S.S. Lexington. The best time to visit Corpus Christi is from November 1- April 1.

2. Padre National Seashore

Oh, how do I began to talk about this unique off the beaten path beach! This 70 mile stretch of white sand, warm ocean waves, and towering sand dunes is the perfect place to spend your weekend. You can tent camp on the beach itself. Plus, it’s only a 15-minute drive from Corpus Christi, so you won’t be too far away from civilization.

3. Houston, TX

A leading cultural and culinary city in the American South, this Texas city boasts over 11,000 restaurants with a wide variety of cuisines. Make sure when you visit Houston, check out the Johnson Space Center. This museum holds over 400 space artifacts and has the original mission command from the 1969 Apollo 13 space mission.

4. Oklahoma City, OK

Oh, Susannah, don’t you cry for me. I’m going to Oklahoma with a banjo on my knee. Okay, my lyrics to that oh so historic song may not be entirely accurate, but hey, why not use this non-fictional song to talk about Oklahoma? Oklahoma City has over 50 legendary cowboy attractions including the National Cowboy and Western Museum, plus shopping, eating, and cheering on the OKC Thunder won’t be far away. Don’t forget to visit the historic Bricktown, which is the former site of Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show.

5. Arkansas

Now, I don’t really know why I chose the state of Arkansas besides that it was the first place that popped into my mind.

“The Natural State” had over 9,000 miles of lakes and rivers, three national parks, plus the Ozark and Quachtia mountains.From ancient mountains to land flattened by the Mississippi River, this state has it all. Great eats, great entertainment, and great exploration.

Hopefully, I’m able to visit all of these places and many more.
