You know those places that have a sentimental feeling behind them? These are my places.
The challenge: we drove from Chicago to Dallas and back in 4 days. Not a lot of time for sightseeing. But we did make a stop in Little Rock and it was my favorite part of the trip. What a beautiful area in such an unexpected place.
The first time I traveled alone I went to see friends who went to school in Nashville. They raved about this place, and I know why! I can't wait to go back to such a wonderful city and eat here again. Worth the wait!
The first roadtrip my boyfriend and I took was from Chicago to Wisconsin Dells. Traveling together is the best test of a relationship, right?
When my mother and I came on vacation to Chicago when I was in middle school, I fell in love with the city. The Sears Tower (then, and forever!) was on the top of our list to see. Years later when I moved to the city, and needed a job during college, I got hired at the very place that sparked our tourist interest. This place means so much to me on so many different levels and will always hold a place in my heart.
When we first met, my boyfriend and I bonded over our love of hockey. And although we love two very different teams, when we got the opportunity to visit "tha gahden" together, it was a big part of him learning about where I grew up.
