Five Trips to Put On Radar for 2018
We at Poe believe that a new year means new adventures. To get you inspired, we’re sharing the destinations we’re most excited about right now, all within the continental U.S.! These are the 5 U.S. trips everyone should have on their radar in 2018:
1. Olympic National Park
Don’t overlook the rain forests of Olympic National Park, the all-levels (but never dull) hiking of Crater Lake National Park, kayaking with Orcas off the San Juan Islands, or the trademark laid-back cool of Portland and Seattle.
2. The Beehive State
Utah’s lunar landscape has never been buzzier. Go now to see the greats—Zion, Arches and Bryce—as well as under-the-radar stunners, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef.
3. Marfa, TX
Make Marfa, Texas, your home base for exploring nearby galleries, desert art installations, local music performances and quirky eateries. Then, take a day trip to Big Bend where nature has carved its own spectacular sculptures.
4. Northwest California Coastline
This stretch of wild coastline which includes Big Sur, Monterey and Carmel is one of California’s most scenic and naturally robust. You can see whales off shore, hike along dramatic granite cliffs to secluded beaches and hidden caves, go wine tasting in Carmel Valley, and perhaps catch a glimpse of a condor.
5. North to Alaska!
If you’re searching for a trip that’s unlike any other, head to Alaska. You can go on wildlife adventures by float plane, explore bear territory to see grizzlies snag salmon in their jaws, and hike endless trail networks.
