My Farewell Tour

IMG_1443

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

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.

๐Ÿ™‚

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.
