We are beyond excited to share our top domestic travel bucket list with you today on the blog! Our hope is to open your eyes and mind to places you maybe haven’t ever considered traveling to. You just might feel inspired to add a few of these places to your bucket list. When you do, we want to be the first to know!

The Estate Yountville

First up is this amazing property in Napa Valley. If you haven’t been to Napa Valley yet, we highly recommend prioritizing this one! The Estate Yountville sits on 22 lush acres of rustic elegance. You can dine, wine, spa and even host a private event! It is the perfect destination for relaxation and luxury. Not only are there exceptional experiences on the resort, but it’s also surrounded by Michelin Star restaurants. What’s even better is that they are all within walking distance.

21c Museum Hotel Chicago

If you are an aesthete person, meaning you love and appreciate works of art, this is the place for you! The city of Chicago itself has so much to offer, but staying or visiting this one-of-a-kind contemporary art museum and boutique hotel is the cherry on top to your midwest travel experience. Even if you have already been to Chicago, this museum hotel is a must visit! Its vibrant and colorful atmosphere has us booking a flight ASAP to this popular midwest city. Book your trip anytime, because this museum is open to the public 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

Nobu Hotel Palo Alto

This dreamy hotel recently underwent a multi-million dollar phased renovation, unveiling a completely brand-new hotel, which includes luxury rooms and suites. What more could you ask for?! The rooms have an extraordinary light and soothing aesthetic to them, which include unique Japanese designs. The Nobu Hotel prides itself on offering high end amenities for guests which include attentive service, priority dining, and luxurious furnishings.

Mission Point Resort

Did you know that Mackinac Island is the number one summer destination in the America? (Neither did we). However, we fell in love with this resort when we learned that it sits on the sunrise side of Mackinac Island, and you can only get there by ferry. Imagine being on an island where no cars are allowed, and your only mode of transportation is horse-and-buggy, walking, and/or biking. The Mission Point Resort takes you back in time to reconnect with yourself and your surroundings. This ‘The Jewel of the Great Lakes’, offers a variety of amenities including hiking, biking, kayaking, garden tours and many outdoor activities. It’s the perfect family vacation spot – including your pets!

Enchantment Resort

Is the canyon of Sedona calling your name? We can without a doubt picture ourselves unwinding at this 70 acre resort nestled in the red rock of Arizona. The variety that this location offers is the ultimate idea of a bucket list vacation. If you are up for exploring, there are endless hiking and biking trails nearby, as well as outdoor activities that this resort offers. Perhaps relaxation is a high priority for you. The Enchantment Resort offers a variety of intimate experiences such as private stargazing, canyon bathing meditation, private wine tasting and spa treatments at neighboring destination spa, Mii amo. It’s a no brainer that this resort is on our domestic travel bucket list. The question is, is it on yours, too?

The Cloudveil

What do you look for in a vacation? If its refined luxury, yet relaxed sensibility, then this Jackson Hole town square hotel might just be the place for you! The location of this hotel could not be more perfect. Not only is it in the center of the towns shops, restaurants and galleries, but it also sits at the gateway of the Grand Teton National Park and is an hour south of Yellowstone National Park. The stunning views, crisp evergreen air and luxury accommodations can only mean one thing. I think we’ve found our mountain haven.

Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club

This extraordinary resort sits on 175 acres and includes 400 guest rooms and suites, seven culinary experiences, three sparkling pools, a Waldorf Astoria Spa, and the private Monarch Bay Beach Club. Honestly, it sounds like pure bliss. Having a front row seat with breathtaking views while being served specialty cocktails and fresh-caught seafood is right up our alley. Their oceanfront activities such as golf, upscale dining and luxury spa services is the ultimate dream vacation, which is why it’s on our domestic travel bucket list for this year!

Summer is just around the corner. Have you started to think about your summer bucket list? We have tons of great ideas for you including hosting a BBQ, watching fireworks, making s’mores, trying new summer accessories and so much more!
