The one place I haven’t lived or visited very much is the Southwest. I always thought that I would do well in the dry, rocky climate, and my sister and I thought it would do wonders for our oily skin. It’s really a pity that we never truly experienced it because we have enough hats and dreamcatcher paraphernalia to decorate an entire Southwest style home.
The Southwest has an incredible amount festivals and attractions that I have always wanted to see. If I ever get the chance, I’ve narrowed down exactly what I want to see when I’m there!
Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta – New Mexico
I have a thing for hot air balloons. The first time I saw one was when a group of 5-10 balloons spontaneously dropped down in our back yard once. It was so cool and the owners even let my sister and I go up in one! After that, my family would always keep an eye out for them during balloon season.
The Grand Canyon – Arizona
I’m not much of a hiker, but I have a bunch of the cute hiking gear and I love being outside. I figure the endurance of actually hiking will come to me eventually, right? 🙂 The Grand Canyon is one of the largest national parks in the country with over 4.7 million visitors annually. I don’t know about you, but I’m fairly certain that I should be one of the 4.7 million people who get to see it.
Sundance Film Festival – Utah
I don’t know why I never realized that Sundance was in Park City, Utah, but I’ve always wanted to go! Sundance has always pushed the envelope with upcoming films, artists and ideas. It is one of the best chances to see what film trends will occur the rest of the year and I love any type of trend setter. My brother and I would flip if we were able to go to this film festival.
I would certainly visit local farmers markets, coffee carts and jewelry vendors along the way, but these three Southwest style attractions would be a the top of my list.
