7 Places You Must Visit before You Die ...


Clearly, everyone’s list of places to visit before you die differs, but sometimes hearing where others are dying to go can awaken a longing in you too.

Plus, it’s a great way to get new traveling ideas if you’ve already been to all the traditionally longed after places.

Here’s my list of places to visit before you die, but feel free to expand on this list as much as you’d like – someday I’ll visit them all!

1. Bull Shoals Lake

Bull Shoals Lake

Nestled in the Ozarks of Arkansas, Bull Shoals Lake is one I can cross of my list of places to visit before you die.

I’ve been here several times and can’t wait to go back.

The lake is huge, but if you visit the area near Diamond City, you’re in a place with limited tech availability.

That means putting the cell phone and laptop away and taking a real break.

Lounging on the lake is perfect, but you can also jet ski, water ski, boat, fish and swim.

This place is so relaxing that just thinking about it makes me want to pack the car and hit the road.2

2. Mesa Verde

Mesa Verde

This is one of the very few remaining intact Indian ruins still available for viewing in the United States.

While you can’t crawl all over the structures like you could in past decades, you can still take in the awe-inspiring feats of architecture that still stand literally hundreds of years later.

There’s great camping nearby (with real bathrooms) so you can turn the trip into a short getaway that will relax you at the same time that it amazes you.

3. Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece

This is somewhere I fully intend to visit before death.

The pictures of the sweeping white buildings against the backdrop of the perfect blue sea are so beautiful it’ll take your breath away.

This place also has tons of history with ancient Roman buildings and market squares that date back hundreds of years.

You can get your fill of shopping and sightseeing, then finish the day with a meal you’ll never forget at any of the wonderful local restaurants.
