Coast to Coast Road Trip Wrap Up - rue21 blog
For the past week, we’ve followed along as a few of our fave social media influencers have hit the road and showed us parts of the U.S. that some of us only dream about visiting. If you missed our Coast to Coast Road Trip, don’t stress! We’ve got the inside scoop for you! Here we are at the end of the road (literally!). After a week of bouncing from state to state, it’s time to wrap up our Coast to Coast Road Trip. Following along with our influencers has truly helped us to embrace a sense of adventure and wanderlust that seems to be absent in everyday life. We hope that our road trip has left you wanting to venture out on the open road this summer, too! We’ve loved every second of following our influencers and seeing the awe-inspiring places they took us. We hope that you enjoyed following them on their adventures! Keep reading to see what a few of our influencers had to say about the destinations they visited: Alexis Castillo, @alexiistherese Shop this look: Black Paisley Floral Print V Neck Cropped Jumpsuit, Black Wavy Strap Slip On Sandals, Black Faux Suede Fringe Mini Backpack Where she took us: “The Grand Canyon State” – Arizona! All of my life I was dying to get out of the desert. It’s unbearably hot here in the summer and being around this climate constantly just made me not appreciate it. In the last 2 years, I have done a great amount of traveling and seen so many beautiful places so different from my home. Surprisingly, traveling has made me appreciate my home so much more than I would have ever thought. The sunsets in Arizona are absolutely magical (dare I say, the absolute best you will ever see) and I’ve come to see the desert, covered in Saguaro cacti, as absolutely breathtaking. There is so much beauty in Arizona, from the mind-blowing immensity of the Grand Canyon to the gorgeous red rock in Sedona, the stunning Coronado National Forest and the incredible Camelback Mountain in Scottsdale. I absolutely love my home and I wouldn’t change it for the world! Daisy Christina, @daisy_christina Shop this look: Plus White Striped Pattern Strapless Jumpsuit, Black Peep Toe Platform Heels Where she took us: “The Empire State” – New York I love NYC because there is so much to do. From clubs to museums, broadway shows to fine dining, it’s the city that never sleeps and strolling around is never boring. You’ll discover and explore new and unique places, and see people from around the world (you might spot a celebrity!). And the skylines, they are just breathtaking! In my photo, I’m standing on one of the side streets of Times Square, one the most well-known New York icons around the world. It represents New York City! The huge screens and billboards with different commercials and all different color lighting around you—if you’ve never visited New York before, you must visit Times Square! Jen Vieira, @jenkvieira Shop this look: Light Blue Striped Ruffled Knot Front Romper, Light Wash Boyfriend Long Jean Jacket, White Peep Toe Crisscross Platform Wedges Where she took us: the “Sunshine State” – Florida! Living in Orlando has its perks, especially being close to so many tourist attractions. The Icon Orlando 360 is the newest attraction in the Orlando area. This 400-foot observation wheel is just so beautiful. The views from the top are spectacular! Icon Orlando 360 also features a variety of things to do including Sea Life Orlando Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and live entertainment at night. It’s one of my favorite places in Orlando to be with friends and family! We hope that our Coast to Coast Road Trip has inspired you in some way. Whether you decide to hit the road with your besties, or venture out solo on the open road, we hope that you make this summer a memorable one!
