The Woodlands Family Photographer | My Top 5 Favorite Places to Visit in the US
Summer is quickly arriving, which means that the kiddos are going to be out of school! If your family is like mine, summer is our traveling season, and there are so many opportunities for fun an adventure! I have been fortunate to take my family to many different places and capture those memories as a The Woodlands Family Photographer. I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you all!
My Top 5 Favorite Places to Visit in the US
1.Sewanee, TN – Sewanee is a must if you have never been! Home to the University of the South, this quirky, yet peaceful town sits on top of a mountain, and has breath-taking beauty everywhere. Not to mention, there is so much to do! The abundant wildlife makes for a great place to hike. My family and I have been to several trails that end at the base of a waterfall. We have also found a few lakes and ponds that are perfect for kayaking and swimming.
2. Austin, TX – Austin is filled with many family oriented activities that would suit any family’s interests. Whether you enjoy the outdoors or indoors, there is so much to do! Zilker Park is a favorite of mine. You can go there to enjoy swimming in the river, playground equipment, live music, and great food. Austin is also home to many museums and entertainment centers that are fun to take the family!
3. Waynesville, NC – I am a sucker for beauty, and the mountains here leave me in awe every time! I love to let my kids play outside in the gorgeous mountain tops. There are several hiking trails and festivals that we always have a ton of fun at!
4. Madison, WI – Madison is such a sight to see! People often compare it to Austin due to its abundance of activities and quirky vibe. They have so many family oriented events going on throughout the year, and most of them are free or inexpensive. I love to take my kids to the Children’s Museum there, which is filled with tons of activities that revolve around nature and wildlife. The Overture Center for the Arts also has many fun events going on that are perfect for the kiddos!
5. Corpus Christi, TX – The beach is something that never gets old to me, so Corpus is the perfect place to take my kiddos. We enjoy the beaches that are quiet, yet beautiful. There is nothing better than relaxing in the sand next to beautiful waters! Also, the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus is one of the best aquariums I have ever been to!
If you didn’t notice, most of these places on my list include places where family live. This is because: a) I love my family and I love to spend time with them, but b) we are ballin’ on a budget, so this helps with some of those travel expenses.We try to get to the beach at least once a year for the kids, and we do love the mountains too. Hikes, and such are all free, and the kids love it!
As a The Woodlands Family Photographer I am so blessed to be able to document not only sweet families, but my own family’s adventures!
