My Farewell Tour


When I decided over a year ago that I was going to move back to Massachusetts, I also realized that I had lived in California for almost three years and hadn’t taken advantage of the beautiful state that I live in (I’ve written about this sentiment before). So I made a list, a farewell tour of sorts, of all the places that I wanted to visit on the West Coast before I moved. While I didn’t make it to all of them (I’ll have to make it to Grand Canyon another time), I did visit almost every other spot. I am so happy with what I was able to accomplish in my last year (ish). Here is a rundown of all the places I visited…

**Before I start posting about my road trip cross-county, I wanted to post the last couple things I had planned about my time in California

Joshua Tree


Mexico (Baja California)


Big Sur and Monterey


Palm Springs


Las Vegas


Santa Barbara


Yosemite National Park


Sequoia National Park


Hearst Castle and San Luis Obispo


Plus, lots of places in Los Angeles…

The Broad


The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (at Universal Studios)


Huntington Library


Getty Center…and Villa



While a lot of these trips were just short weekend trips, I am very happy with the amount of California that I was able to experience.


P.S. The rest of the list includes Death Valley National Park, Grand Canyon, Redwoods National Park and the northern coast of California, along with lots of places that I didn’t get to in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
