Pacific Coast USA is usual on the must see list of places to visit in the USA.

Pacific Coast USA includes the states of Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington State.

Idaho is frequently included in the Pacific Northwest, so you will see some road trip ideas including Idaho in this section. Otherwise, you will find Idaho in our West USA (mountains) category.

Thank you so much for this FABULOUS information on Waikiki! My husband booked us a family trip, and I admit I haven’t been thrilled about the idea of a “city beach.”
You have moved me to be totally excited and confident we will have a wonderful vacation. I spent time in Waikiki many years ago, but did not know of several of the excellent activities, or any of the fabulous eateries you present here. I was also somewhat hesitant about my daughter’s time in the ocean, and how it would be to take her surfing without much ocean experience- I am so much more confident now!


FEATURED VIDEO: Yosemite National Park

There is a reason Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular in the USA.

It is extraordinarily beautiful with so many wonderful hikes and adventure activities. If you like rock climbing, it is one of the best places in the world for it.


Travel has been the focus of our life since 1997 - intentionally.

We don't plan on stopping that. We now have a base in Raleigh, NC - after being granted a Green Card for our extraordinary ability in the art of travel blogging.

We will continue to explore more of the US but also intend on traveling further abroad - Europe, South East Asia and Central and South America.

We can't wait to share more of our favorites as we experience them.
