Buffalo City, Arkansas, USA

BlogPhoto_BuffaloCityThe White River and the Buffalo River are both in Buffalo City.

Little known fact about this area, but probably one of the coolest (ok give me at least Top 50… No? Dang.) things you’ve ever heard, the White and Buffalo rivers actually run together at Buffalo City.

The White River is f-f-f-freezing, and in the summer the Buffalo River feels like a hot bath.

SO, when you’re boating from one river to the next, you can put your hand in the water and actually feel the exact place where the rivers meet. It’s only a matter of seconds that it takes to go from a frost-bitten hand to one that feels like it’s melting.

So don’t miss it!

This place receives negative points for accessibility and an overwhelming number of gnats in the summer.

Charlottetown, PEI, Canada

I spent 2 days in Charlottetown on my honeymoon one May, discovering quaint shoppes and great seafood, amidst landmarks rich with national heritage. It’s pretty small, so it’s not bustling with activity, but if you’re looking for a lovely place with a slower pace, Charlottetown is a breath of fresh air.

Charleston, SC, United States

Charleston is a great place to visit. The city is full of history, as it was founded in the mid 18th century, at the start of our country. Walking thru downtown, you’ll find statues, parks, old buildings, and a deep culture that enlightens visitors with where we’ve come from.

Freeport, Maine, USA

Aside from being slightly “touristy”, Freeport is really quite nice. The downtown is well maintained with shops of many kinds, including the flagship LL Bean store. What I loved most about this town is that it makes you feel rugged and sophisticated at the same time.
