2018 Travel Goals

For our first year of travel, we plan to do a handful of bigger trips, like Iceland! Since we don’t have unlimited funds and we do have full-time jobs (!), we’ll also do lots of road trips and weekend trips to spots throughout New England:

1.) Build sand castles on the pink beaches of Bermuda

Update: We did it! Bermuda felt like a tropical dream paradise, just a couple of hours from home. For more, check out:

2.) Do a food tour of Portland, Maine

3.) Attend the WaterFire festival in Providence, Rhode Island

Update: We did it! And we had the best doughnuts of our lives! For more, check out:

4.) Check out Elvis Presley’s solid gold Cadillac in Nashville, Tennessee

Update: We did it! The Grand Ole Opry was something we’ll never forget! For more, check out:

5.) Walk beneath the waterfalls in Iceland

6.) Go to Trevor’s first baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston

7.) Ride the “Choo Choo”  and watch the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World

8.) Spend the night in a château in Quebec, Canada

9.) Search for Humpback whales in Newburyport, Massachusetts

Update: We did it! We didn’t do a whale watch (four hours on a boat seemed like too much for Tru), but we got to see THE most stunning fall foliage instead! For more, check out:

10.) Drive the Kancamagus Highway through the White Mountains of New Hampshire

Update: We did it! Trevor loved dipping his little toes into the icy-cold rocky river rapids! For more, check out:

11.)  Eat deep dish pizza and stroll the Riverwalk in Chicago, Illinois

12.) Watch the sunset from Block Island, Rhode Island

Update: We went to Newport, Rhode Island instead! The beach sunsets over the Atlantic were stunning. “The Breakers” palace was maybe even more stunning. For more, check out:

13.) Hike the Rocky Mountains in Colorado

14.) Ride a gondola above the fall foliage in Stowe, Vermont

Update: We went to Maine instead! And now we have our vote for the most gorgeous town in Maine to see the fall foliage. For more, check out:

15.) Meet the penguins at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta

Update: We did it! It turns out Atlanta is a dream destination for families, with incredible aquariums, zoos, and gardens. And the “Imaginary Worlds” exhibit is breathtaking! For more, check out:

16.) Photograph the cottages and lighthouses of Nantucket, Massachusetts

Update: we did our very first trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to explore the beaches there instead! The Outer Banks is our vote for the most kid-friendly beaches, perfect for family travel! For more, check out:

17.) Bike the boardwalk in Grand Haven, Michigan

Update: We did it! And we found the most gorgeous beach with the most stunning sunset. For more, check out:

We may add to this list along the way, we’re open to being spontaneous!
