With summer now in full swing, odds are you’ll be vacationing at some point. A quick look at Instagram will show you that many of your friends are wandering around exotic locales, and the sad reality is that they’re terribly misguided to go across the world.
This is because the country we call home has absolutely everything you could want to visit, and I’m here to prove that in the form of an exhaustive list. Here are some American alternatives to popular travel destinations around the world.
Instead of going to city of love, check out the City of Brotherly Love. You don’t even have to cross the Atlantic to visit a city that’s dirty, overrated, and has plenty of historical landmarks. What really propels Philly above Paris is the history around the American Revolution, which dramatically changed the course of world history.
The French Revolution, on the other hand, took something like a hundred tries for the Parisians to get right. As for the Eiffel Tower, it would be less of an eyesore to see a group of homeless people Eiffel Towering someone on the streets of Philly. Seriously, the Eiffel Tower sucks. Nothing to write home about.
