Most of us like traveling seeing new places,things,stuff and most people travel on a regular basis.
Where are some cool places you have been to?
What about uncool places?
Any interesting experiences?
For me personally i dont travel alot because of money restrictions but i have been round this part of the country ( US ).
SoCal, mostly the Los Angeles and Inland Empire areas, too be honest here not a big fan of the area. But there are roller coasters there and thats gotta count for something. Although Inland Empire is just 2 story houses for what seems to be hundreds of miles. Some specific places include Los Angeles,Santa Monica,Burbank,HollyWood,Irvine and Pasadena for LA area and San Bernardino, Rancho Cucamonga, Monero Valley,Menifee and Temecula for inland empire. Death Valley isnt as hot as everyone says it is, just dont buy any drinks there because prices are really high, the valley also blossoms into a meadow twice a year, i have always wanted to see it.
San Diego been once and just the main city, cool zoo.
Utah, i mean its desert with a giant salt lake in the north, though zion national park is a great place to go hiking on a off season. Been to the southern part the most and its just a few cities surrounded by rocks for hundreds of miles in between.
New Mexico, unfortunately it isn't exactly like breaking bad up there,
not 100% exactly. They got hot air ballons and deserts, pretty cold surprisingly, only been to Albuquerque.
Arizona, if you ever wanted to see a cactus you came to the right place, because thats all there is here, less you go up north west, not recommended. Know this place from the palm of my hand and been to almost the whole state its large and not too walk able especially in the summer with the 120F temps, dust storms and flash floods and what not. Half the state consists of snowbird trailer parks in the winter there's more northern license plates than Arizona ones on the streets. Hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Only place to see both wolves and coyotes in the same place, booming economy, not a bad place at all.
Nevada, insert area 51 joke here, imagine living in a place where your entire state lives in one corner and the rest of it is just empty, if you ever played fallout new vegas it is extremely accurate to the real deal with the radiation and giant mosquitoes that take like take half your health in one hit. This is the only you'll place ever see hit 115F in the Summer and get 2 feet a snow at -20F in the winter. In the rural parts you will find some of the rarest vintage cars ever made and hundreds of thousands of wild horses.
Outside of the desert been to
Illinois, i saw east st louis in person, it is exactly what the media says about it, stopping for gas will pump you full of adrenaline. Mostly flat and farmlands, the difference between the part i was in and Chicago is like night and day, never been to Chicago but this part of the state is nicknamed the "badlands". Not becuase of geography either, but it was nice and quiet, felt homely and welcoming. I saw my first skunk here and that ended about as well as it does in the cartoons.
Maine, only place i have been to where people speak french natively, only been once, its cold, but peaceful, unfortunately never ate local crab which from rumors is the best in the nation.
Only interesting experience i had on a road trip to socal one time some guy in the middle of the highway was selling kittens, they were cheap but my parents didn't trust the fact this guy was quite literally 30 miles from the nearest settlement in the middle of nowhere on the side of the highway selling kittens for $25 per kitten, this guy had what to a young mind looked like hundreds of kittens and people were buying them too. I always wondered why he decided to sell kittens in the middle of highway 10, in the summer.
I want to travel more and i am traveling to the northwest sometime in the near future because the geography up there looks stunning. I did most of my traveling in a small number of trips.
