Today I’ll give you a list of in my opinion the top fun places to go on vacation 

I have tried to include many different types of environments to suit your needs no matter if you are a beach person, woods person, or somewhere in-between

Fun places to go on vacation in the United States
  1. Grand Rapids, Michigan 
  • Grand Rapids gets its name from The Grand River
  • One of my favorite things to do in Grand Rapids is to travel around the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. You cannot go wrong spending an evening here. This place is 158 acres of sculptures, things to do, and absolute beauty. 
  • If you love animals, visit the John Ball Zoo. This will be a phenomenal experience, yes if you are wondering if they have tigers, they do!
  • On one of the days that you visit Grand Rapids, you will have to visit The Fulton Street, Farmers Market. Buy some fresh produce and enjoy the magical surroundings
  • Last but not least on my list for Grand Rapids is Millennium Park. There’s a beautiful beach here along with loads of bicycling and hiking trails. My warning to you here is that you can spend an endless amount of time at Millennium Park

Nantucket, Massachusetts
  1. Nantucket, Massachusetts
  • The beaches in Nantucket are surreal. If you are a beach person, this is the place to be! There are so many sand beaches in Nantucket that will boggle your brain with the beauty that they provide. Alongside some of the beaches, there are playgrounds and skateparks. 
  • You have to head to Sankaty Head Light at some point, this lighthouse is extremely elegant. The view and pictures you will be able to take here will provide you with memorials for a long time
  • It wouldn’t be right for me not to tell you about this wonderful place… The Old Mill is the oldest functioning mill in the entire United States!
  • I would also highly recommend going to the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge. This is a nature preserve directly in the middle of many beaches. This is a stunning spot in the world.

  • The first thing you must do when you are here is to eat a real Philly cheesesteak. They are out of this world!

Fun places to go on vacation in the United States
  1. Amarillo, Texas
  • First off in Amarillo, we have to start with Cadillac Ranch, this place is so creative and interesting. I would classify this as a must-see
  • This I would rank even higher than Cadilac Ranch and it is called The Palo Duro Canyon State Park. One of Earth’s wonderful marvels
