Destination Monday: Dallas, Texas

DFW, The Metroplex, North Texas, different names for an area that offers everything from skyscrapers to cattle yards and everything in between. Dallas and Fort Worth, it's two major cities separated by 30 miles of suburbs, aren't exactly twin cities, they're more like fraternal twins with different personalities who squabble more than they get along. Two sides of the same Texas coin whose roots are different but intertwined. New Texas vs. Old Texas but because of those differences The Metroplex offers almost everything a traveler could want in an urban vacation.

Destination Monday: Atlanta

Atlanta, also known as the urban forest because it’s the most densely tree covered major city in the US with 36% of the city being covered by trees. It’s also home to the world’s busiest airport with Hartsfield Jackson airport on the south side of the city. Atlanta is home to several Fortune 500 companies, including Home Depot, UPS and Coca Cola. I think it’d make a great home to Speakman!

Destination Monday: New York City

New York City. The Big Apple. The Capital of the World. The City that Never Sleeps. Gotham. The Melting Pot. The Empire State.

New York is something different to everyone who has encountered it. If you ask 50 people what to do in New York, you’ll get 50 different answers. And if you did all 50 of those suggestions, you still wouldn’t scratch the surface of what this city has to offer.

But let me start off by saying that I am not a native New Yorker. But I do frequent the city often on business trips or to visit family and friends. So let’s consider this an entry level guide for those looking to avoid becoming overwhelmed by the city’s complexity and size.

Destination Monday: St. Petersburg, Florida

Once considered a quiet retirement community, St. Petersburg FL has evolved into the most happening locale in Florida this side of South Beach, Miami.  With accolades including #1 Best City for Millennial Job Seekers (NerdWallet, 2015), inclusion as one of the "Most Outstanding Places" (Forbes Travel Guide, 2014), Top 52 Places to Visit (New York Times, 2014), and "5 Best Summer Travel Destinations" (Travel + Lesiure, 2016), it's clear that the city has undergone a true renaissance.  Plus it's surrounded by the gorgeous waters of Tampa Bay and the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico - only enhancing this thriving scene.

Destination Monday: Miami, Florida

Miami is truly unique in the sense that out of every destination in America, there truly is something for everyone. I know that statement is thrown around so much that it becomes incredibly cliché, but South Beach has it all.

There’s the frozen margarita, electric neon Miami. There’s the vintage, Art Deco Miami. There’s even the fine dining, luxury resort Miami. It’s whatever you need it to be at any time of year. And for that reason, I’m completely obsessed with this city.

Destination Monday: Lewes, Delaware

Since 1869, we’ve called Delaware our home. And we’re so profoundly proud of our roots. Like Delaware, we at Speakman have remained small by design to focus on what we do best – delivering an incredible experience.

Despite our modest stature, the state of Delaware has a ton of locations to explore. And for us, Lewes, Delaware easily sits atop that list. We obsess over Lewes so much, we’ve even named a bathroom collection after it. You can check it out here.

Historic, beautiful and serene – Lewes is a must-visit destination that proudly claims to be “The First Town in The First State.” Plus, Lewes is completely walkable. Within a half-square mile, you’ll find museums, restaurants, fine shops and excellent places to stay.

Destination Monday: New Orleans

New Orleans is often considered by many to be a party town. And don’t get me wrong, there is no shortage of partying in the city. But New Orleans offers so much more than signature cocktails and boisterous crowds. NOLA is a unique Southern town that’s rich in culture and history with a large focus on family and friends.

I grew up in New Orleans and my family still lives in and around the area. I can tell you first hand that family and friends are the core of what makes this city so special. Folks in New Orleans will do just about anything to help out their neighbors. And that type of comradery creates a unique bond that is almost impossible to describe.

Destination Monday: San Francisco

Since the ‘60s, San Francisco has seemingly become the cultural heartbeat of our country that constantly finds ways to reinvent itself. From its activist counterculture to the literal headquarters of the digital world, San Francisco has a mythical lore that’s nearly impossible to describe.

The first time I visited San Fran was sort of by accident as I had a daylong layover on my way to New Zealand visiting my husband’s family. But all it took was one day for me to completely fall in love with this city. Since then, we’ve made it a point to return and visit whenever possible.
