Grand Canyon National Park (it’s really grand).

My whole life, I’ve wanted to visit the Grand Canyon. It’s something you read and hear about, and see in pictures and videos growing up your entire life (at least in the U.S.). I've gotten to visit this natural wonder twice in my life, once in 2017 and again in 2021 (I will be including …

SeeWorldNotSeaWorld’s 5 Rules for Road Trips.

I've taken 7 major road trips in my lifetime, spanning from 2011 to 2021, and I have learned many lessons along the way. Three were cross-country, from Indiana to California/Arizona, and the other four also encompassed a multidate of states (one was 16 states total) and stops. Now, I'd like to share those lessons with …

Mogollon, New Mexico: One of the Wildest Mining Towns in the Wild West.

It was quite a feat getting to this once flourishing mining town nestled deep within the Mogollon Mountains in western New Mexico. Mogollon sits approximately 12 miles from the nearest "town", Glenwood (population: 139), and only 3 miles of that is highway. The rest is a 9-mile precarious road, to say the least, which has …

“3 Corners”: Stand in Three States at One Time!

The “4 Corners’” lesser known, less popular cousin, I didn’t even know the “3 Corners” existed until this year (2021). Almost everyone knows about the “4 Corners” in the Southwest, but few know about the three states that meet in the Midwest. I had never heard of it until I researched things to do for …

Grafton, Utah: “The most photographed ghost town in the West”.

The expansive Utahan desert, right outside of Grafton. Tucked down a bumpy, 3-mile partial dirt road, sits a little known and extremely cool ghost town. Located in the southwestern corner of Utah, not a soul lives in this completely deserted place, which is probably very creepy at night (there are ranch homes nearby, but nobody …

Salem, Massachusetts: Welcome to 1692.

By far one of the most iconic towns in the U.S.A., Salem, Massachusetts played a pivotal role in America’s story. Of course, I’m talking about the famous Salem Witch Trials, a dark stain on our history. The witch trials were when mass hysteria took over, leading to very little thought and extremely irrational behavior. Between …

Savannah, Georgia: Cemeteries and Squares.

I've dreamed of visiting the historic city of Savannah for years. It’s considered by the paranormal community to be a mecca for ghosts and one of the most haunted cities in the U.S., if not the most haunted city. It’s older than the United States itself (records start in 1733), after Georgia was named the …

West Virginia: The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.

Considered to be a holy grail for ghost hunting in paranormal circles, the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is as haunted as it is historic. We visited this epic beast on the last day of our 2019 East Coast road trip (Epic East Coast Road Trip. - you will find a section about this former insane asylum …

Cadillac Ranch: The Stonehenge of Texas.

An iconic roadside stop just outside of Amarillo, Texas, Cadillac Ranch is worth the stop. We visited during our 2021 cross-country road trip to move my friend out to Arizona. I’ve passed by this place two times prior and I wasn’t going to miss it a third time. For those unaware of what the heck …

An American Pilgrimage Story (Washington D.C.).

The Reflecting Pool and Lincoln Memorial. I’ve been to Washington D.C. once, back in 2003 at the tender age of 13 for my 8th grade graduation school trip. To say I barely remember it is an understatement. It was such a brief and erratic trip – they shuttled us onto a chartered plane at like …
