Where Should You Vacay in 2017?

The holiday season is upon us. Between fewer daylight hours and the hustle and bustle of the season, December seems to fly by. Before you know, you will be celebrating New Years! With New Years come resolutions and plans for the upcoming 12 months. I personally want to travel more in 2017 so I’ve started doing a lot of research. Here is where I want to vacay next year and where you might want to check out too!

Los Angeles

I’ve been here, but I want to go back. There is so much to do in LA and never enough time. Hollywood Walk of Fame is on my to-do list for my next visit. The benefit to LA is you can get a little bit of beach and city living. The downside, lots of time in the car with traffic. You might be able to see a celeb or two while there which is always fun!

Las Vegas

Funny story — My parents took my brother and me when we were younger…according to my mom, it was being advertised as “family friendly.” Guess what, it wasn’t. I haven’t been back since then so I think it might be time to experience Vegas as a 21+-year-old for the first time.


Puerto Rico

It’s breathtaking. Do I need to say more? This one will take a little while to save up for. It’s a great vacation spot in December with an average low temp of 72 degrees. You really can’t beat a beach with warm temps and a cool drink.



Home to Starbuck! I am an avid coffee drinker and would love to see the original coffee shop. I also wouldn’t mind putting a piece of gum on the gum wall, and then washing my hands a million times. You can’t forget the Space Needle. And maybe I’ll go visit Meredith Grey too.


Another destination that I went prior to being 21. I was right on the cusp of being 21 so it was a big tease to be in Nashville. I would love to go back and experience the Bluebird Café and to do more than just drive past The Grand Ole Opry.
