My Road Trip Bucket List:
Where I Want To Go and Why
Let’s go through the list:
1. Austin, Texas
Austin is known for a couple of reasons.. The biggest draw for myself, is the foodie scene! Something I learned about myself when I visited Charleston, SC last summer is that I’m definitely a foodie. I can’t be bothered with chain food, tasting the local food scene is essential! Popular, aesthetically pleasing spots to check out are Paperboy, Fleet Coffee, Uncommon Objectsand Josephine House. If you’re looking to visit somewhere with western vibes, vintage shops with western treasures within and country food, this is the place to visit!
2. Nashville, Tennessee
Much like Austin, Nashville is filled to the brim with country/western vibes. When visiting Nashville, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to get breakfast from Biscuit Love and shop for vintage finds at the downtown antique mall. You’ll also want to grab a latte from the popular Three Brothers Coffee and go bowling at Pinewood Social. These are a couple of aesthetically pleasing places to check out if you find yourself in Nashville this summer! And if you’re looking for a place to stay, I highly recommend the airbnb; A Cozy Casa. Airbnb is always a great option because you get to experience your destination more like a local and less like a tourist. A Cozy Casa is decorated like home and who doesn’t love staying somewhere that feels like home? Not to mention you could totally do a mini shoot there too! Yep, it’s that cute!
3. Scottsdale, Arizona
These days, I’m itching to do a photoshoot in the desert. It goes with my aesthetic perfectly and I just feel a part of my soul drawn there. Although the desert is quite beautiful, Scottsdale has many other amazing things to experience. On my to-do list, I’d like to check out Teaspressa, Phoenix General, Joyride Taco House and Sugar Bowl, to name a few places.
4. Palm Springs, California
I probably don’t have to explain this location too much, I feel like Palm Springs is on everyone’s bucket list! No matter where I go, photogenic spots will always be important to me. I just love photography too much! When it comes to Palm Springs, I’m willing to bet you could easily come home with well over 500 photos. Looking through photos, it looks absolutely stunning! When I finally make it out there, I’m most excited to check out Moorten Botanical Garden,Salvation Mountain, (its a 2 hour drive from Palm Springs) Kings Highway Diner, and Parker Palm Springs. These are just a couple of places out of the long list I continue to add onto. I can’t wait to make it out to the west coast some day!
5. Joshua Tree, California
I don’t think anyone can stop talking about Joshua Tree.. and for good reason! Located about two hours from Palm Springs and an hour from Salvation Mountain, it’s kind of in the perfect spot if you ask me! Joshua Tree is a national park and has become just about every photographers dream shoot destination. Not only is it a stunning desert to admire, explore and photograph but it’s also home to many aesthetically pleasing airbnbs. I’d kill to stay in The Harriet House, Cactus Mountain or The Joshua Tree House. One things for sure, if you choose to visit Joshua Tree, it’ll be a vacation to remember.
