John and I have been planning our 2016 travel and decided to make a bucket list of all of the places that we would like to explore this year.
We did quite a bit of traveling last year, but this year we've decided to keep things domestic. We were able to qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass, and we figured we should take advantage of it as much as we can while we have it!
Here's a quick look at our 2016 bucket list!
For our 5th wedding anniversary, John and I will be going to Alaska! We booked our trip this past weekend, and to say I'm excited would be an understatement. We will fly into Seattle and spend a day there before heading to Alaska. John and I went to Seattle over Thanksgiving two years ago, and I'm excited to see the city in the summer... but mostly, I cannot wait to explore the Last Frontier.
John's younger brother recently moved to Denver, so we figured that it would be a perfect excuse to make our way to the city. John and I have explored southern Colorado pretty extensively, but haven't yet made our way to Denver. And no trip to Denver would be complete without a visit to Rocky Mountain National Park!
New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans is a super quick flight from San Antonio, and would be the perfect destination for a long weekend adventure. John has been there several times, but I'm looking forward to experiencing the culture and food... lots of food!
New York, New York
New York City has been on my to-go list for awhile, and honestly, it seems silly that I haven't made my way there yet! We will likely save this trip for around the holidays (to experience at least a little bit of seasonal weather!). City, shopping, a show - yes, please!
Big Bend, Texas
This may seem like a silly add to our bucket list considering we live in Texas, but Big Bend is pretty much in the middle of nowhere (about a 6-7 hour drive from San Antonio, which is the closest big city in Texas). There are some great backpacking routes that John has been wanting to do, and we thought this would be the perfect way to explore and learn a little bit more about our new state!
What's on your 2016 travel bucket list?! If you've been to any of these locations, make sure to fill me in on all the good sites to see and places to see and eat!
