Travel at Random Anniversary: A Look Back

It's hard to believe, but it's been one year since we started Travel at Random.  In the past year we've travel around the globe, from hiking a glacier in Alaska to laying on a beach at Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos and we've been happy to have our loyal readers come along for the journey.  

This article is going to take a look back at where we've been and some destinations you might have missed.  We're all about the adventure and proving some helpful reviews and tips along the way.  

Destinations

In the past year we've traveled to South Korea, Turks and Caicos, Alaska, California, New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Florida, Denver and a few other places in-between.  Our favorite outdoor adventure was hiking Matanuska Glacier in Alaska.  The top beach destination was the gorgeous Grace Bay in Provincials, Turks and Caicos.  Grace Bay's powder white sand, warm weather and crystal clear caribbean waters make this one of the top beach destinations in the world.  In our experience, I put this beach and reef right behind the Great Barrier reef in Australia.

In June, we took readers inside the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in St. Louis.  If you're over 21, this is a touristy attraction we highly recommend.  Our guest contributor Patricia Heathernington took us on a journey to Glacier National Park.

Boating

We at Travel at Random are also avid boaters.  We shared our tips for getting on the water in Washington, DC and we took you along for the journey on a three city tour of the Chesapeake Bay.  Stay tuned for more nautical adventures coming in summer 2014.

The Food
