We’re big fans of exploring our greater backyard, whether that means your hometown, state, or country. There are so many different landscapes and cultures within the different regions of the US. You could spend a lifetime or two exploring and never see it all.

Trust us, we’ve lived in every corner of the US – NYC, Atlanta, San Diego, LA, and Portland with cities in between. No matter how boring you think your hometown is, you can find hidden gems if you’re willing to look for them. Many gems are just a short drive away.
