If you are planing a trip to Florida here you have the must see places in the legendary city of Miami:
What Miami is really known for is it´s beautiful beaches, more specifically South Beach. In this area is where you´ll also find some of the best restaurants Miami has to offer. Española Way is an area where they imitate European architecture and you can also find some authentic food there. If you want to see some of the best nightlife Florida has to offer the South Beach area is the place to be. There are a large amount of clubs, bars and venues all over the place.
When you think about Oregon the first city that probably comes to mind is Portland. Although Portland is a great place to check out, there is a city about an hour away called Hood River. Here you will find some amazing places that are definitely worth the trip!
With a population of about 7,000, Hood River is the place to go if you want to do the not so touristic things. You will find a typical downtown area with restaurants and bars but the real gems lie right outside the city.
If you´ve ever heard someone refer to a city as a “summer town” than Lake Geneva is the perfect example. It´s located in Wisconsin about an hour outside of Chicago. The 8.14 square mile lake is what makes up most of the town although there is a population of about 8,000 people in the actual city. All the way around the lake you will find multi-million dollar mansions, many of them owned by celebrities.
If you´ve been to Wisconsin before chances are you haven´t been all the way up North to a town called Rhinelander. Although there’s not much to the “city”, it is a very relaxing place to get away. In Rhinelander you might find a couple of stores and bars but the lakes and serenity are what make this place great. The county area has over 1,100 lakes so it won’t be too hard to find one that fits your liking!
Many people don´t know the wonderful things that are only minutes from the city center of Salt Lake City. But what you will find outside the city will make you want to return much more than the actual city. A 20 minute drive out of the city will bring you to an elevation of 8,755 feet. There are so many magnificent views and hikes you can go on right outside of the city! If you go up Big Cottonwood Canyon you are guaranteed some scenic views.
If you haven´t been to Chicago and you are planning a trip, we have selected the main attractions you should visit. Chicago is full of different things to do so make sure you get to see as much as possible.
The first thing on your list should be Millennium Park where the infamous bean statue is located. After strolling through the park, if you want to enjoy some of Chicago’s history head to The Field Museum or the Art Institute of Chicago.
