Visiting the 4 Key Points of the United States
By now, you must have all noticed that I love traveling and have done so since I was little. I recently went on vacation to Cancun and upon my return, my dad flew back with me to Miami to spend a week with me. During one of our road trips while he was here, he mentioned how I had now visited the 4 key points of the United States (I have no idea what they’re called, couldn’t find an actual name to it, so I gave it this name) to which I realized it was true and mentioned to him that it was a great topic for a blog post, so here it is. So in a sense, this post was his idea lol.
- USA and Canada border: Washington State and Vancouver, British Columbia. This trip was made back in 1991. We did a road trip from Los Angeles to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We spent about 2 weeks on the road stopping in different cities/states in California, Oregon and Washington along the way and spending some nights in some until we eventually made it to British Columbia. While there, we also visited Victoria Island. This part of Canada is the English speaking part and it is absolutely beautiful. I hope to make it back some day. As you can imagine, since I left all of my photo albums back home in LA, I don’t really have any pictures of this trip with me, but did manage to find this one below. This one was taken during this road trip. Yes, I don’t know what’s up with my hair. Bad perm, anyone?
- USA and Mexico border: San Diego, California and Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Living in Los Angeles, this is pretty much a given. This has been a constant trip since I was born due to the proximity. Tijuana, Mexico is only about a 3 hour drive give or take south from Los Angeles, and pretty much everyone (that can) has made that trip. You can read about one of my latest trips here.
- USA and Canada border: New York and Niagara Falls, Ontario. This point should technically be the state of Main with the Canadian border, but I visited NY and then crossed over to Canada so I’m using that one as reference. I visited the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls but actually flew into NY and then drove across the border. That trip was completed in 2014 and you can read all about it here.
- Southernmost Point of the USA: Key West, Florida. This trip was the most recently completed one. I visited Key West and the Southernmost point of the USA a few weeks ago. You can read about that trip here.
Have you visited any of these key points or which ones would you like to visit? Let me know in the comments below!
