BBL 2013-2014 | Make a List of 50 Places I Want to Visit


Why did I include this on my Bucket List?

Travel is one of those big ticket items that just about everyone has on their bucket list.  While I do keep a global 'some day' bucket list, my life is such right now that most of my focus is on my Birthday Bucket Lists full of less grandiose (not to mention less expensive) items.  So, travel destinations have been a bit neglected in my dreams for what I want to experience in the future.  I decided to rectify that with this list.

Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?

I don't know that I had any hopes for making this list, but I am happy that I now have a list of places I want to visit complied and saved for future reference.

The details...

Of course, I had a few places I want to visit jotted down but most of them were still floating around in my mind.  It took me a while to get them all out of my head, and I had to do a lot of googling to jog my memory.  While I was searching I was stunned to see how many top U.S. travel destinations I've already seen!  I have been very fortunate in my life with the amount of travel I have been able to do within the United States.  As you will see, the majority of the places on my list are also in the U.S. as there are still many places here that I would like to see in my lifetime.  So, perhaps some of these will show up as future Birthday Bucket List items.

Here is my list:
  1. Statue of Liberty (New York)
  2. Central Park (New York)
  3. Times Square (New York)
  4. The Bean (Illinois)
  5. Willis Tower Skydeck (Illinois)
