Let's hit the road, Jack!

Top 2 Tuesday: Top 2 Favorite US Cities

I was really excited when I saw this topic because I love to travel and have been to lots of cities. I soon realized it's very tough to pick 2 favorites!! But, I've managed to narrow it down...

#1  Charleston, SC

I'm from the South so this was a given! I've been visiting Charleston since I was born and just love it! It's the best city for so many reasons...

The beach

The gorgeous scenery & architecture

the historic homes


& the #1 reason why I love Charleston-

Hyman's Seafood Restaurant serves THE BEST key lime pie ever. Hands down. It's AH.MA.ZING.

*photo credit goes to my husband for the landscape pics of Charleston. He's pretty good huh? 

#2  San Francisco, CA

I've been to San Fran once and would love to go back! I went in high school for a school trip and then stayed an extra week with my uncle who lived there at the time. He showed me the sights and we walked to the middle of the Golden Gate Bridge.  I also saw the curviest street in America - Lombard Street. So cool to see! And of course I rode a trolley car! One thing I wish I could have seen was the house where Full House was filmed. :( I was so sad and still am. But I'll see it one day!

My uncle also took me to this little town right outside of San Fran called Sausalito. It's a waterfront town with lots of little unique shops. I consider this part of San Fran because you have to go through San Fran to get there, or at least I did!

Sorry I don't have any "personal" pics to share. My visit was a bit before the digital camera era.

I'm so jealous of all the places you've been!! I haven't been ANYWHERE (other than Alaska...I skipped lots of states to get there!). Take me with you next time you travel the US! haha.

I Love Charleston! I've only been once, but it was an amazing time and such a cute town.
