My Top 5 Vacation Spots

Here are my Top 5 favorite places to vacation

  1. Daufuskie Island, South Carolina
  2. Karlsruhe, Germany
  3. Paris, France
  4. San Franciso, California
  5. Las Vegas, Nevada

Here’s why I love these places and think they are great to explore!

Number 1:

Daufuskie Island, South Carolina:Specifically referring to Haig Point, which is a private part of Daufuskie. If you leave the gated area of Haig Point, there are other communities on the island. Daufuskie is a hidden island located across from Harbour Town (Hilton Head Island). This island is very family-friendly. There is something for everyone to do and I can’t get over how beautiful it is! No cars allowed, golf carts only, which makes it so much more fun! There are beaches, pools, clubhouse, beach house, so many restaurants, etc. There is a community dock, which is a great place to watch the sunset. Two ways to get to the mainland — ferry to the Haig Point Embarkation and water taxi to Harbour Town. We absolutely love visiting the island. If you are looking for a new place to vacation, I would highly recommend Daufuskie Island!

Number 2:

Karlsruhe, Germany: If you are looking for an international trip to Germany, I would highly recommend visiting Karlsruhe. It is a smaller city, but so much to see! My fiance was born and raised there, so I go there at least once a year. It is also easy to get to different cities via the train. We like to visit Heidelberg while in Karlsruhe. The city center in Karlsruhe has recently completed construction, and it is beautiful! The castle is also a place to go see, it is very pretty. In the summer, they do a light show that is projected onto the castle! All in all, it is a beautiful city.

Number 3:

Paris, France: Paris has so many wonderful sights! The Eiffel Tower was amazing, although it was pouring rain once we got to the very top and the winds were so strong we got soaked! At night, the Eiffel Tower also gets lit up and is very beautiful! The Arc de Triomphe is beautiful, and I believe you can go to the top, but we did not. The castle of Versailles is also beautiful. We had to wait in a pretty long line in the rain to get in, but it was so worth it! The inside is beautiful and there’s nothing to compare it to. Paris is the city of love, and it was my first international city to go to with my special person! I would definitely recommend going.

Number 4:

San Francisco, California: San Francisco is your typical California city. The Golden Gate Bridge is beautiful and there are a couple of beaches and parks around it to ger great pictures! There is the Fisherman’s Wharf where you will see lots of seals lounging around on rocks and swimming. You may also even come across people swimming nude — yes I saw it and it was nothing that I expected! There are also some older boats that you can step into that have been turned into museums. Lombard Street is also a site to visit, although standing at the top, it is hard to see the shape, but everyone gathers around there. You will see people trying so hard to make the sharp turns. The Painted Ladies houses are across the street from a park that a lot of people go to and it is also a few blocks from the house that you see in the introduction to Full House! I love San Francisco and will always go back!

Number 5:

Las Vegas, Nevada: Las Vegas is a wonderful, amazing, crazy city! The Excalibur Hotel is shaped like a castle, has a casino, and an amazing pool area. I think there are 3 pools and a few bars in the ‘resort’. You won’t walk down the main street without seeing something bazaar, but it’s Vegas, what can you expect? The Bellagio does an amazing water show and MGM Hotel has lots of fun stores and sites to see. I don’t recommend taking a baby, as we did. There are too many people and trying to maneuver a stroller around the crowded sidewalks is difficult. It is a super fun city for adults!
