My USAmerica Must Do List!

Since I posted my announcement of going to the US, I have received a few invitations from my friends to come visit them and it made me even more excited about going!

I had the idea of coming up with this list when I saw an episode of 100 Things documentary on the Travel and Living Channel about one man's mission to accomplish 100 things in his bucket list!  I felt inspired to make a bucket list of my own for my US trip! Nothing crazy like getting married in Las Vegas or anything haha

So far, this is what I have in my list.  Feel free to give specific suggestions of things I should do, or let me know where I can accomplish the task that's already on my list.

New York
-eat the best burger
-eat the best pizza

"pizza go to Lombardi's pizza "Highly regarded and rated as the Best of New York , a City of Pizzeria's."" -Jules C.

-eat the best cheesecake
-go to all the museums
-watch a musical
-watch Today Show
-join a speed dating event

-sing at an open mic night

New Jersey
-shop tax free
-go to Carlos' Bakery and hopefully meet the Cake Boss or any of his sisters! haha

-go to the museums in Boston
-Harvard University
-check out the place where the bombing happened

Rhode Island
-go to the home town of my friend David and Peter Griffin of Family Guy!
-Eat quahogs (hard clams)
-Eat the best lobster I will ever have in my life!

"...my state is called the Ocean State....so you tell me!!! The best lobster you ever had in your life...." David B.

Washington DC
-go to the White House
-visit all the museums

and then down to

Florida NEW!
-sunbathe in Miami Beach and drool over Latinos haha
-get a tattoo?

"Miami should be top of the list. Drool over all the hot bods and feast some some Latino specialties" By Sue Z.
"See the Florida Keys if you can. If not at least the lower eastern coast. The water is nice."By Rob B.

Bahamas Cruise

-help build houses for victims of hurricane Katrina/Sandy
-eat crawfish
-go to Emeril Lagasse's restaurant and have turtle soup!
-listen to Jazz music
-dance in the French quarter

Texas HELP!
i still haven't decided which city of Texas I should go to.  I don't know a lot of people who has either been to Texas or lives in Texas.  Which city do you suggest so I can do these things:
-square dance
-eat ribs

and then up to the West UPDATE!
I have decided to skip the West Coast on this trip and just focus on the East Coast and the South.  I realized the only place I wanted to go to was San Francisco.  I guess I can do another USA trip just for the West coast.

Hawaii UPDATE!
If you read my previous post about my ticket, I am still waiting for feedback from Rajah and them from Hawaiian Airlines; if they're going to re-book me or refund me my ticket.  



  1. ga dont forget to visit The Capitol in DC!!! that's my fave!!! ogle the Library of Congress and get to listen to congress hearings too :-)

    PS: take note it takes months to get WH tickets. check out CS member ho works inside WH so you can get pass. queue is ridiculously long!

  2. Visiting the WH was supposed to be on my list but accdg to the WH website, they dont have tours anymore! because of lack of staff or something, that's why I dont think I could get inside!

  3. New York :
    *go up to Empire State bldg & have your
    picture taken.
    *try to walk along the Broadway where there are
    manholes with smoke coming out & take your photo
    there. my friend said that's where the ninja
    turtles live! hahaha
    *take photos with their yellow taxicabs! :-)
    *visit Rockefeller ice skating rink (though it's not winter, the whole place is so nice)
    *join short cruise of Statue of Liberty & take photos!

    San Francisco
    *the sea foods at Fisherman's Wharf soooo delicious especially the crabs!

  4. thanks achun!!! Oh yeah the Rockefeller! and of course youre right the Statue of Liberty!
    I'm not going to SF anymore!

  5. Texas - drive lang, try to get as close to Mexico as you can get, silip-silip lang hehe.

    General tip: forget about PHP when u get there, ma-stress ka sa kaka-convert!

    Hope to read about your trip soon!

    enjoy :)

    1. Hey IndieEscape! Thanks for that. I am pondering now if I should skip Bahamas and just go to Mexico? Or maybe I should go to Quebec

  6. Dont miss MIT in upper Boston, Cambridge to be exact. Their musuem is one of the best in MA. Eating Clam Cowder there is great too. Keys in Florida is a must, and probably the best musical in NYC is Wicked. enjoy USA!

    1. OH WOW!! thank you so much! these are the kind of suggestions I want!

    2. By the way lobsters are best in Maine an wheneer you're in the coastal towns of east coast dont miss a clam bake :)

    3. Oh yeahh.. clam bakes. Perfect. Thanks! Pls keep replying if y think of anything else
