Firstly, I hope everyone is doing okay! I skipped over last weeks weekly 5 places to visit in the US because I wanted to use my platform to raise awareness about the Black Lives Matter movement. I'm still raising awareness but I found the time this week to create part 3 of the popular Road Trip Series blog.
Let's get straight into it because as of right now summer is officially less than two weeks away! This year has flown by so quickly and I hope everyone has at least started to plan their first road trip. My first will actually be next week!
Here are this weeks 5 domestic places to stop in this summer
1. Visit A Ghost Town In Bodie, California
Didn't think there were really ghost towns around? Well think again! Bodie, California is a town frozen in time, and preserved by California State Parksin a state of “arrested decay.” Bodie became a State Historic Park in 1962, and maintains the buildings just as they were found when the State took over the town – but they do not restore the buildings, instead choosing to simply preserve the buildings in their aged and weathered 1880s appearance.
2. Fly Geyser, Nevada
Fly Geyser is located on Fly Ranch, a 3,800-acre parcel of land in Northern Nevada purchased by the Burning Man Project in 2016. It is an amazing site that is located about two hours north of Reno, on the edge of the Black Rock Desert. The geyser was created accidentally in 1964 after a geothermal power company drilled a test well at the site. Although its closed for public access you can take photos at a distance.
3. Take A Hike In Blue Lakes, Colorado
The Blue Lakes are located in a glacial basin in southwest Colorado in the Mount Sneffels Wilderness. A gorgeous alpine hike with wildflower-filled meadows, and impressive views this trail is not to be missed. There are three lakes in the basin - the middle and upper have the best views. This is an easy day hike but the lowest lake has several campgrounds along the shore for those who wish to spend the night. So pack your bags and do a camping trip around the beautiful lake.
4. Camp At The Apostle Islands In Wisconsin
The Apostle Island is a perfect place to visit during the summer time. You can Kayak, hike the lakeshore trail, mountain bike at Mount Ashwabay, catch a show at the Big Top Chautauqua, dine at the Freehands Farm, drink at the Southshore Brewery and more!
5. Take A Ride On The Most Scenic Highway In The USA In Californias Pacific Coast
It takes 10 hours total to drive the entire Pacific Coast Highway in California. Along the way though you can make some amazing stop like San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Big Sur, Santa Barbara. You could stop in tons of different cities and do something different and unique in each city. This would be great for a 3-5 days road trip
