“People forget years and remember moments.”Ann Beattie
I thought I would take the time to reflect on past travels and my favorite moments from them. Each adventure had it’s own flavor and wow factor. Take a walk with me down memory lane!
St. Louis, MO – Go Ape
Ziplining was always something that I wanted to do. I got my opportunity when David and I went to the Go Ape Treetop Adventures in Creve Coeur park located in St. Louis, MO.
The employees give you a quick but thorough safety course, then they send you on your way to explore the zipline course. We weren’t sure we would enjoy it, but we had such a great time. There were easy points in the course but there were also challenging and very daunting points as well. It was so much fun flying briefly through the air. If you are wanting something fun and outdoorsy to do in St. Louis, you should stop by Go Ape Treetop Adventures.
Kansas City, MO – Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
David and I are sports fans. We also enjoy history. When the two are combined it’s safe to say that we are all in! The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is a wonderful place of curated baseball memorabilia. I learned so much about the sport of baseball before integration, especially the all-black teams and players. Black baseball players were very influential on the game of baseball as we know it today.
Denver, CO – Red Rocks Amphitheatre
If Denver, CO is not on your list of places to see in the USA, it should be! Visiting Denver is like a breathe of fresh air, literally. The first thing you noticed when visiting Denver is the mountains. Our first full day in Denver we had to visit the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The view is beautiful and very peaceful. If you are unfamiliar of the history of the location, a small museum is on the site. This place is great to relax, grab a bite to eat, or just get some great photos for Instragram!
Atlanta, GA – Sun Dial (restaurant)
The Sun Dial restaurant is a great place to grab a bite to eat and capture a great view of Atlanta. The restaurant gives you a 360 degree view in a beautiful and elegant atmosphere. The menu is American, with a wide variety of options. The best time to go is obviously the evening to see the city lit up.
Austin, TX – Coopers Ole Time Pit BBQ (bbq in general)
Barbecue is without a doubt the cuisine of Texas. Barbecue has to be on your list of food options when visiting the capitol of Texas. We stopped by Coopers Ole Time Pit BBQ located in downtown Austin. The barbecue was hot, savory, and all around delicious. It also has a fun, open spaced atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable the moment you enter the restaurant.
I hope you enjoyed the walk down memory lane with me. This was fun! If you’ve been to any of the cool spots I mentioned, tell me about your experience below!
