Bring Me To The States: 10 places I Want To Go To In America

There's something about America that excites almost everyone and I am no different. It's not a place I could ever see myself moving permanently but that being said it's on my bucket list to one day touch down in LAX. The idea of America is something in which I for one have completely built up in my head, a complete change in lifestyle, a land where it's actually sunny in June and you can just go to the beach at any time during the day. You can wear flip flops all year round and even scoot around on scooters, not to mention walking into the Kardashian's on a daily basis ... it's the dream life.  
Obviously I'm not stupid and I know that's a complete made up stereotype I have in my head and a day to day life in America would definitely not include scooters, beaches and the Kardashian's but none the less that doesn't stop me drooling about the American life.
There are some places in America which do excite me more than others and if I won the lottery these are the first ten places I'd be booking a flight to: 

1. Los Angeles: The first place I'd be booking my ticket to is without a shadow of a doubt to LAX airport. For as long as I can remember LA has been my dream destination and if I had to live anywhere else in the world this would be the place. Hollywood, Beverly Hills, everything about this place just seems so glam and exciting. I can only imagine how intense it would be to live in a place like LA but it's the dream, with a list the length of my arm of things I want to do like see the Hollywood sign, walk the walk of fame, drive around in a convertible the real cliché things of Los Angeles. 
2. Salem/ Massachusetts: Whilst on my tour of America this place is a must for me. I know, it's not somewhere that's on everyone's bucket list but with my intense love for Halloween and the history of Halloween it's one of my first stops and oh yes you guessed it, ideally at Halloween time. Not only would I want to be in Salem for the history and the witch stories it's also home to my all time favourite film Hocus Pocus so it's a must see, for me.. oh look, I'm a poet and I didn't know it.

3. Vegas Baby: Trust me when I tell you this would be my dream place, but also trust me when I say that this is the place that would destroy me. I am not a gambler by any stretch of the imagination but it's for good reason. If I was to gamble it would not stop at just one scratch card or one game on the slot machines believe me and if I was in Vegas for two nights I could almost guarantee you I'd come home bankrupt and having to sell my house to pay off my debts.. none the less Vegas is on the list!! - I'm already singing Kenny Rogers! 

4. New York City: I'm like every other girl in the world when it comes to NYC and would kill to go there. It's not number one on my list of places to go but it just seems so magical and surreal. From reading 'The Catcher In The Rye' for my leaving cert I always loved the idea of NY and of course as a 'Friends' fan I think I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to go and see times square and to jog around central park. With so much to see and do around New York I don't think you could ever get bored.. as they say, it's the city that never sleeps (and to be fair neither do I so book me in) and of course to walk the streets singing New York Minute!! 
5. Miami: 'I'm In Miami B*tch'  Who wouldn't like to go to Miami? - come on, tell the truth!! EVERYONE WANT'S TO GO TO MIAMI!!!! Growing up watching the likes of Miami Ink I always had a love for the place and that beach!! - To tell you the truth I know NOTHING about Miami except for the beach and for that reason and to sing 'Miami Beach' alone I want to go there!! 

6. Kennedy Space Centre Florida: Whilst I'm already in Florida for Miami I'd have to stop off at the space centre but in reality this is a place I'd come to America alone for. I'm obsessed with anything related to NASA, the moon, stars anything space related so this is a place that is definitely on my bucket list. I've done so much research about this place and it's truly one of my dream places to one day go. 
7.  Honolulu, Hawaii: Ever since watching Hawaii Five O Hawaii has been my dream holiday destination. The beaches, the lights, the palm trees everything about this place is beautiful AND, Alex O'Loughlin aka Steve Mcgarrett aka my dream man just so happens to live there... 
Ohh just one more for the road so...

 8. Chicago: For one reason, and one reason only and that is for Lollapalooza. I can already hear it in my head 'what the hell is Lollapaloza?' well my uncultured friends, Lolla is one of the biggest music festivals in America specifying in Indie/Rock/Dance music, everything I've ever wanted in a festival. 2014's line up included, MGMT, Foster The People, Calvin Harris AND Kings Of Leon.. hello?!! Could I want anymore?!

9. Arizona: This place has fascinated me ever since snapchat covered it for a day and there's just something about the place that make me scream 'TAKE ME TO ARIZONA!!!!!!!!' -Except quietly, and in my head and yano very rarely, but I say it!!
I don't think there's a more perfect place to get away and relax.

10. Nashville: After LA this would be my most desired place to visit in the states. Not only for the reason it's home to my favourite band King Of Leon, and I could sing 'back down south' all day, everyday but the place itself is absolutely amazing!!
 There's something about this southern way of life that makes me wish I was born over there, throwing horse shoes, dancing in barns aggghhh the Nashville life... BRING ME THERE!!!!

So there you have it, my top ten places I want to visit in America.. where would you love to go? 
Let me know below :)
