Which State is Right for You

Whether you live in the USA or if you want to come visit, it’s a huge country. And by huge, I mean huge. With 50 states and 1 federal district, it reaches from one ocean to another, and contains 3 major mountain ranges and a variety of ecosystems. Now, if you’re coming from out of the US and want to know where you want to visit, this will help you. You can’t just say “I’m going to the US!” Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Nope. It should be “I’m going to California!” or “I’m going to Utah!” You need…

Canyonlands vs Arches National Park

Utah has the third most national parks of any state, but has the 13th most land of any state. Utah is filled with 5 national parks. Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches. Canyonlands and Arches National Parks surround the city of Moab. Moab is a very touristy city. Jeep rentals, tours and motels crowd the area, while crazy rock formations surround it. However, you don’t want to waste the time you have in Moab! You want to spend the time you have in the right places. Arches National Park receives 1.5 million visitors annually, while Canyonlands much less,…

Renting a Jeep in Moab, Utah

Moab is huge! And I don’t just mean Moab the city. Surrounding this desert oasis is a vast variety of natural wonder. Within an hours drive of the city, there are two national parks, a national monument, a national forest and a national recreational area. Moab is a backpacker’s dream! It’s anyone’s dream, really. Obviously, if you brought a car with you, you can definitely use that to see the nature right outside your hotel window. But my absolute favorite way to see Eastern Utah’s natural beauty is by renting a jeep. It let’s you see the things you wouldn’t…

Making Sure You See the Best Beach in Charleston

Charleston, South Carolina is a picturesque coastal town on the Atlantic Ocean. The pastel colors of the Battery are a great introduction to the kindness of the Southern people and the warm waters of the Mid-Atlantic. First, I would head to Pineapple Fountain, where you can find the best sunrise views in South Carolina, seeing the Arthur Ravenel Bridge in the distance. It’s a common spot for photographers, but get there early; you will be swarmed with runners, walkers and locals by 7:00. The top thing to do in Charleston is to see The Battery. A great spot for relaxing,…

California Zephyr to Glenwood Springs, CO

Today was my first time in Colorado. So far it is a pretty awesome state. The nature is all right there. Granted, I haven’t seen much yet. But pulling up to Glenwood Springs Station on my Amtrak train, I think I saw a good amount. After losing my phone in an Uber, we had quite an experience trying to get it back. We finally did, and once that extreme stress moment was over, I decided I needed to visit Glenwood Springs Hot Springs. Not only a hot springs, it is the worlds largest natural hot springs! The water, reminding me…

Moab: An Otherworldly Destination

Moab is the center of some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the world. Rock formations like no other; Red, orange, green and blue creating a world of color, and a sun that makes the desert landscape dance around you. Moab is paradise. But to believe paradise, you need to see it. If you get to Moab by train, you get here, Green River. North of Moab by 50 miles, Green River is the closest town to Moab by the main highway where you can get any form of civilization. But even that is a stretch. With a population…
