About Me

My blog, “50 States of Mind,” is a blog I have designed to give me both knowledge and inspiration to travel across the great United States of America. Our beautiful country has so much to offer and I would like to take advantage of that as much as possible and what better way to do that than to see the best of what every state has to offer? I can already cross 13 off my list ranging from the shores of the Great Lakes in northern Minnesota to the deserts of Arizona to the mountains in Colorado. My travels have even taken me to other countries including Costa Rica, Caribbean, and Mexico. Different states and different regions provide so many unique opportunities to experience and I aspire to try as many of these opportunities as possible. My blog is teaching me the best ways to accomplish this along with the must useful advice on achieving the best experiences. This is an exciting goal of mine and I look forward to all the adventures the United States has to offer me.
