Jordan Baker’s Top 12 Dream Destinations for National Tourism Day

It's National Tourism day. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would your dream vacation be? Here's a list of places I have on my bucket list.


Grand Canyon

 
 

I lived in Arizona for a year and 2 days before we moved, I made a stop at the Grand Canyon. You can't live that close and not go. Pictures don't do it justice. To truly appreciate Mother Nature's beauty, you must make a trip to the Grand Canyon before you die. There's a reason it's one of the 7 wonders of the world.

St Marteen

 
 

I've cruised to the Caribbean several times and my favorite spot is St Martin/St Marteen. I hear Kenny Chesney has a home there, although I wasn't fortunate enough to run into him. I did run into the nude beach and before you get too excited, most of the people strutting their stuff on the beach, should have been clothed.

Emerald Isle North Carolina

 
 

Its more about a trip than the destination. Every year I have a girls only trip to Emerald Isle in North Carolina. No kids, no husband, no pets and no responsibilities. Ahhh the life. Plus there is nothing like walking the beach as the sun rises every morning. Absolutely breathtaking.

Hawaii

 
 

Some day I'll scratch Hawaii off my bucket list of must see places. If I ever make it, I promise myself I'll travel to a volcano and learn how to surf. I'll have to wear a grass skirt too.

Australia

 
 

Australia also makes the bucket list. Just to travel through the outback and see a kangaroo would be a blessing. Some day...

Greece

 
 

Greece would also be an interesting stop. The history alone would be worth the trip. The ruins, on the other hand, are a must see. Maybe if we win the lottery.

Italy

 
 

I'll admit I don't know much about Italy, but I'd love to go. I know if you're an Italian food lover, it's definitely the place to be. From cobblestone streets to a gondola ride, it's on my bucket list too.

Paris

 
 

Just once, I'd like to see the Eiffel Tower. Although I don't know much french I'd still like to travel overseas.

England

 
 

Since my father's family originally came from England, a trip before I die is a must. From Big Ben to Stonehenge, I'd like to see it all. A stop at Buckingham Palace would also be a must so I could get my picture taken with those guards and the funny hats.

Times Square in New York City

 
 

I wouldn't go during New Year's Eve during the big ball drop, but a stop at Times Square in New York City is a must. From people watching, to street entertainment, to great deals on the sidewalk, you'll see it all in Times Square.

San Francisco

 
 

I just want to ride on a trolly car once in my lifetime. And although I'm not a huge fan of bridges, since they scare me, I'd like to travel over the Golden Gate Bridge. I've heard San Francisco is a great place to visit, so I've added it to my list.

New Zealand

 
 

I'm all about exotic locations and New Zealand is definitely exotic. Like Hawaii, I don't know much about the region, but from the picture, it's breath taking.
