In a country where there is no shortage of Cities, it can be hard to pick the right ones to visit. Of course, there are the more obvious choices of New York and Miami who are all worthy contenders, but we’ve decided to look into some of the lesser known, or lesser appreciated cities that are well worth a visit while you’re in America. So without further ado, here’s our list. Sit back, relax, and let us take away all of the stress of picking out a location – all you have to do is sort out your airport parking and your flights!
Kansas City, Missouri
Kansas City has a little something for everyone. For those who are fans of the culture, take some time out to wander around the National World War 1 Museum, or the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. For those who enjoy a bit of a drink, why not try some cocktails at Julep or drink your way through Westport. There are plenty of award-winning restaurants to choose from in all kinds of different cuisines, but make sure you try the barbeque food! Kansas City is perfect for foodies, and is one of the best lesser-known cities for its food, even beyond the amazing barbecue. With a nightlife to be proud of in addition, it really is worth the visit for anyone looking for a break to fill their stomachs.
Providence, Rhode Island
Providence is the perfect destination for lovers of arts and shopping – and they don’t have to be separate interests! Rhode Island School of Design’s museum of Art has over 84,000 objects housed on six floors, so if you have any interest in art, history or architecture, it’s well worth a visit. Similarly the Rhode Island State House is equally worth a visit for the same reasons. Head down to Westminister St. for shopping not unlike the things you’d find on Etsy, both artwork and items to add that little something extra and unique to your shopping experience.
One of the best things to do in Boulder, Colorado is to go hiking at Chautauqua. You could also go biking, trail running or rock climbing – only a few of the options that Boulder has to offer its visitors. The sun never stops shining though, so make sure that you have a good amount of sunscreen with you, even if you’re visiting in the winter. Boulder’s charms lay in its activities, its food and beer, the weather, and the fact that it is simply one of the most visually stunning places on this list. While it may not be the cheapest, it’s certainly worth the costs if you can afford them.
Some of Portland’s strongest charms lay in its food and drink. It is possibly one of the best beer cities in the world, it holds its own in the forefront of food trends and all while staying affordable. This weird and wonderful destination is easy to get around, all while experiencing the best and worst the entire time. You could spend an entire day wandering around a single neighborhood, but it’s just as easy to find yourself in different neighborhoods all in a short space of time. You can go from boutiques and luxury, high-end stores, to walking through an area you feel far less comfortable in in a very short space of time, potentially even minutes.
