Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Where I’ve been, A-Z: Letters A-I!. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
Judy did a few blog posts on this topic earlier this year and I thought it would be a great Tuesday Topics post! Here’s a list of places I’ve been (letters A-I).
A – Allentown, Pennsylvania. I went to Penn State for my Bachelor’s Degree. One of my friends on campus lived in Allentown so I went back home with her one weekend. It was definitely an experience – I’ll leave it at that, lol. Definitely not my type of city.
B – Boston, Massachusetts. I’ve actually visited Boston a few times, the first being when I was in high school and doing my “college tours”. Ultimately I decided to not go to apply to BU since they didn’t really have a program that fit what I wanted to do. Since then I’ve been back to run a half marathon and meet up with Michelle, and recently I just visited in June to hang out with a friend that was on a work trip.
C – Chicago, Illinois. Of course I had to use Chicago for this one. It’s no secret how much I love this city and I can’t wait to visit again. In my travels to Chicago I have run a 5K, 10K, half marathon and two marathons. I also visited the city for a work conference many years ago. Each time I visit, I explore a new place. It’s a super fun city with amazing food.
D – Detroit, Michigan. I attended MSU in East Lansing, MI for Graduate School but my boyfriend at the time attended school in Detroit so I would go down there at least twice a month. The downtown area of Detroit is awesome – tons to do and lots of restaurants/bars/casinos, but the other areas of Detroit are a little sketchy.
E – Eagan, Minnesota. Eagan is part of the Minneapolis/St.Paul area of Minnesota. It’s also home to one of the largest offices for my job so I have been there to visit a few times. It’s a very laid back town and the people there are so friendly!
F – Forest Hills (in Queens), New York. I was born, and partially raised, in the Rego Park area of Queens, NY. Forest Hills is the next town over so I was often there for a bunch of things – shopping, sports, restaurants, appointments, etc. It’s one part of Queens that I think everyone should explore.
G – Greenwich, Connecticut. Although Greenwich is about 10-15 minutes from me, it’s not a city I frequent often. The vibe (i.e. obnoxious rich people) is just nothing I want to deal with, BUT I do have to go there whenever I get my car serviced and the people there are absolutely lovely.
H – Hartford, Connecticut. Hartford is the capital of Connecticut and one of the largest cities in the state. I visited the area a few times when I was in high school for sports competitions, but haven’t been back as an adult. I know Connecticut gets a bad rap for being a boring state (which is a little bit true) BUT we do have some cool cities, including Hartford.
I – Iowa. I couldn’t think of a place I have visited that starts with the letter “I”, so for this one I’m adding a place I want to visit in the future, primarily to see Kim 🙂
Tell me: Where is the coolest place you have visited or run?
