SeeWorldNotSeaWorld’s 5 Rules for Road Trips.

I've taken 8 major road trips in my lifetime, spanning from 2011 to 2022, and I have learned many lessons along the way. Three were cross-country, from Indiana to California/Arizona, and the other five encompassed a multidate of states (one was 16 states total) and stops. Now, I'd like to share those lessons with you! …

Prescott, Arizona: “Everybody’s Hometown”.

Ok, first things first: it's pronounced "Preskett" (press-skit). That’s how you say it in Arizona, and anyone who pronounces it the grammatically correct way (“Press-scott”) will be immediately outed as an obvious “you ain’t from around here”. You see, apparently, the town settlers wanted to sound as “western” as possible, so they purposely mispronounced the …

Speculum Alchemiae: Museum of Alchemy 🔮 (Prague).

Located just outside the Jewish Quarter in Prague (about a 4-minute walk), I highly recommend a visit to Speculum Alchamiae: Museum of Alchemy. It was one of the coolest experiences we had in Prague, which says a lot, as all the experiences were amazing. Why??? This museum is the gateway to the archaic underground labs …

Arguably one of the most famous homes in the United States, the Winchester Mystery House is a sight to behold. Extremely popular among the paranormal community, the house is known for not only its wild design, but its numerous ghosts.

Located in Southern Illinois, right on the mighty Ohio River, and just outside the tiny village of the same name, lives Cave-in-Rock State Park. It's a free state park, open daily from 8am to 9pm.

Bonaventure Cemetery (Savannah, Georgia).

Located just outside Beautiful and Historic Savannah, Georgia., Bonaventure Cemetery routinely makes most lists of “World’s Most Famous Cemeteries”. Established in 1846, the beautiful Spanish Moss covered oak trees and elaborate headstones bring a medieval gothic vibe that isn't found in many U.S. cemeteries. Many of the headstones date back to the 1800’s and early …

The Wickenburg Jail Tree.

In the small(ish) town of Wickenburg, Arizona (population 7,695), sits an historic tree that was once used as the town’s jail - really. In fact, “jail trees” were not uncommon during the Wild West days, especially in Arizona, as they cared little for the detainees’ comfort or wants. Instead of taking the time and effort …

Garden of the Gods (Illinois).

While the better-known Garden of the Gods is located in Colorado, this one is Southern Illinois' main claim to fame. By far the most popular hiking spot in the area, I firmly believe that the Illinois Garden of the Gods is worthy of its name. Beautiful and unique, it's a favorite go-to spot of out-of-towners …
