Cape Cod is where time stops, and life slows down and you actually can relax on your vacation. The best Cape Cod towns to experience feel like they have stood still in time. I have been going to the “Cape” as locals call it since I was in a little kid perks of growing up in Massachusetts part-time. Maybe I love it for the nostalgic memories, but mainly I love it because the setting of the Cape makes me feel like I am at the center of a Nicholas Sparks novel.
Lately, my world has been spinning at a million miles an hour, so I thought I would go somewhere I could catch my breath. While Cape Cod is New England’s best-known summer escape, I would also recommend it in September for a last-minute getaway before fall really starts in New England.
48 hours in Dallas convinced me that I loved this city. Dallas is the glitz and the glamour of Texas. The city is made up of neighborhoods, such as Bishop Arts and Deep Ellum that give Dallas a hipster edge. Personally, I had decided to stay longer in Austin, Texas because people in Austin tried to tell me there was not much to see in Dallas. However, I thought they were wrong. I found there was plenty of things to do for any foodie, art lover, or culture seeking traveler in Dallas.
Get weird in Austin! Austin, Texas’s unofficial slogan is “Keep Austin Weird”. A slogan coined by a local radio station legend, hippies and old-timers alike used this as a battle cry to fight commercialism and the rapid overdevelopment due to the soaring population from tech giants adopting Austin as a new home.
Heading to Austin I was excited for a city that embraced the unconventional and defended its local businesses and quirks.
New Orleans a city of jazz, mouthwatering food, and the nicest people that make you do a double take. The beauty of New Orleans is it is a city where almost anything goes. I have been three times throughout my life and every time the Big Easy surprises me with different experiences that blow my mind.
I have gone as a teen, a booze crazed 21-year-old, and a more mature sober Sarah. This time around there was no booze as I traversed the city, by day and night. In fact, the past 6 months I have cut out alcohol out of my diet entirely, but that is an entirely different story. Seeing New Orleans through a fresh mindset and an open mind allowed me have a hell of a great time!
