Top 2 Tuesday!

This weeks topic at Taylor's Top 2 Tuesday is..........Top 2 Cities!

I am going to try to stick with only the cities I have been to because if I dont, the list would be endless! There is no way I could only pick 2 of the cities I am desperately wanting to go to!

So here are my top 2 cities that I have visited.........

1) I sort of cheated on this one, but I pick any of the cities in Orange County, California:



Ok, see where Aliso Viejo is listed on the map, right next to Laguna Beach?? That is where my daddy lives :) It is absolutely beautiful there! His house sits on a cliff overlooking a gorgeous state park and it is breathtaking to stand in his backyard and look out below! I will have to take pictures to share from my trip this weekend! I cannot wait to get out there!

And even better, he is just a short drive from the beach- I love just driving down to Laguna Beach to visit their shops or grab a quick lunch! Dana Point is also beautiful along with several others: Newport Beach (one of Taylor's picks), Anaheim (where Disneyland is!!), Huntington Beach.......see why I couldnt pick just one- I had to pick the whole county!!






2) My 2nd pick is Breckenridge, Colorado!


This is BY FAR the cutest little ski resort town! I started visiting Breckenridge as a kid with my family, but now Husband and I have made it a point to try to visit once a year for a quick ski vacation. The town itself is very small, but I love the feeling of getting away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life and just coming here to relax! I myself am not much of a skier, so I come mainly to visit their shops and restaurants- and enjoy a massage too (while Husband is snowboarding, of course!)

I couldnt find any of our ski trip pictures on this computer, otherwise I would have posted some, but these will at least give you an idea!



I cant wait to read everyone's picks!

Great picks!! I've only been to Breckenridge in the summer; so, I'd love to see the snow!

Lindsey said...

I love breckenrdige as well - except we have a tendency to call it breckenfridge because its soooo cold there!
have you and your hubby ever been to angel's hollow on the back side of main street for dinner when you have been there? if not - you will have to look it up - it is probably my favorite restaurant ever - everything is home made and the owner is also the chef, bartender, and your waiter - its amazing!

happy tuesday!

Lindsay said...

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

I'm sure anywhere in OC is fab!

I would love to go to Breckenridge, CO. It sounds fab! WE have stayed in Durango, CO on the road trip back from our Honeymoon, and I LOVED it! I told the Hubs I want to move there. I will start a little shop and he can be a Park Ranger.

And we can live in the mountains on a ranch! Ahhh!!!

I have never been to California OR Breckenridge, but now I want to go!!!! :) Hubby and I are always trying to think of places, and recommendations are the best way to go!! :) Thanks for sharing!

Jess said...

I've never been to either, but my father-in-law lives in Cali, so I hope to make it there within a year!

My fave two cities:
*Seattle- love the mountains, greenery, Pike Place market, Starbucks, city, etc.
*Victoria, Cananda- beautiful gardens, house boats

Love your blog. Never been to either city. Everyone should visit KY for some Bourbon Distillery tours and some great horse racing! That would be my first favorite city. My second is Charleston, SC. :)

Ah so funny... my parents lived in Newport Coast and we would always go to the movies in Alisa Viejo- I love it there!! I also love Breckonridge- I haven't been in years though! So pretty and great choices!!
