Part of me isn’t even sure making a travel bucket list makes sense considering we have no idea what the next year will look like. But I am keeping hope alive and manifesting that this vaccine is going to change the trajectory of this year and it will be the best one yet. Regardless, I plan to make the most of this year whether it’s at home in NYC or thousands of miles away. So, here is my 2021 travel bucket list and I hope it gives you some inspiration for your 2021 travels!
I know I can make travel possible if I do road trips and stay close to home. So here are a few places close to NYC I plan to go to!
Washington DC – I’ve actually been once already and really loved it. Robert hasn’t gone so I’m looking forward to experiencing it with him!
Maine – I need to try some delicious seafood and get lost in nature!
Niagara Falls – Only 6.5 hours from the city, I’d love to experience Niagara Falls at least once and then hop over to Ontario and show Robert around Toronto! (I was born in Ontario but haven’t been back in years!)
Boston – I’m not even entirely sure why I want to go to Boston, but I’ve only heard great things about it so that’s reason enough for me! Plus it’s only 4 hours from NYC!
Asheville, Savannah, Charleston, St. Augustine – I would love to take an East Coast road trip and visit each of these cities along the way. I especially want to be in Savannah for Halloween because it is apparently very haunted! We did go to St. Augustine this year and had so much fun, we already want to go back!
West Coast Road Trip – We were hoping to do a California road trip last summer, but with all of the fires we were unable to. My hope is that next year we can buy a van and road trip from San Diego all the way up to Vancouver! We would stop in LA, go to Yosemite, Death Valley, Sequoia, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, Portland, Seattle and then obviously do all of Canada after that….lol. I haven’t figured out the details but it would be a dream trip! 2021 has me feeling ambitious!
Switzerland – Switzerland was been the top place on my bucket list for a few years now and it just feels like 2021 is the year to make it happen! Like, just LOOK at these photos!!!!
Southeast Asia – It would be a dream to spend a few months exploring Southeast Asia. Specifically I would love to go to the Phillipines, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia.
It’s almost impossible to know right now what travel will look like in 2021, but I am very optimistic that we will all be jet setting very soon! Until we know what sort of travel will be possible, it’s a great time to plan and research trips now and start a travel savings account. This way you’ll be ready to go the second you can!
Let me know below in the comments or over on Instagram what is on your 2021 travel bucket list. I’m always looking for new ideas!
