To Visit List

Good Morning!

I was just thinking about all of the different places that I would love to visit in the next year or two. Obviously this list could span on for many blog posts, but I am just going to mention some of the more feasible locations. I'm on a college budget right now so money is pretty tight, but you never know what can happen in any given moment.

Cicada Club in Los Angeles, CA

I will honestly admit that this one is already a stretch. Since I'm only 19, I wouldn't even be allowed inside the venue. I turn 20 in January though, so it'll only be a year from then! I certainly have to save up some money to make the trip to California, though. Anyway, I absolutely love that this venue still maintains all of its Art Deco charm from the 1920's. It looks fabulously glamorous, and who wouldn't love to swing the night away in a place like this?

Patsy's Restaurant, New York City

There are a couple of different reasons that I want to visit this restaurant. First and foremost, it was one of Sinatra's favorite places to eat. If you all haven't noticed, Sinatra is very present in my everyday life. He came from hardly anything to become one of the most prevalent icons to ever exist in American culture. It's hard to even fathom that. Having said that, I find it fun and interesting to visit some of the more low key places that he liked to visit. Patsy's is one of his favorites. Secondly, I absolutely love food. I am vegetarian, but that never stops me from demolishing a good pizza or pasta. And this place has fabulous reviews; I can't hop on the train fast enough.

Lord Baltimore Hotel, Baltimore 

This hotel is definitely a more feasible visit for me; I am only 20 minutes outside of Baltimore. Unfortunately it has been more modernized than what my palette would usually prefer, but it still maintains a decent amount of its late 1920's/early 1930's charm. I probably couldn't afford to stay here, but I wouldn't want to either considering how close it is to my home. However, I would love to step inside and look around for a few moments. Like I said in my last post, I always find it fun to imagine who walked in the hallways almost 90 years before I did.

Grand Central Terminal, New York City

Ah, Grand Central Terminal. I haven't been since I was a child, but it's one of those places that could just take your breath away. A pinnacle of American architecture. I love how it has maintained all of its grandiosity since it was built in 1871 and rebuilt in 1913. Being one of America's most iconic landmarks, I think that this should be somewhere on every vintage lovers' to-visit lists. Fortunately for me, it's only about a two and a half hour train ride to see this spectacular place. 

That's all from me for now! What are some of the places that are on your bucket lists for the next few years? 



  1. Breathtaking list! I will have to remember this if I ever come to the US.

    1. You should definitely make your way over here sometime! We might not have very, very old architecture, but I think that we nailed the Art Deco era architecture when it comes to distinctiveness!
