This Week's YA Highway Road Trip Topic: What is the most inspiring setting you've ever visited in real life?
Every place I've lived has had inspiring sights. I loved pulling onto certain roads in Oregon to spy Mount Hood...the inner Midwestern girl would be screaming, It's a mountain! Right there in front of me!
Here in New Jersey I can be driving along and spy the Empire State Building. Before I moved here, I didn't realize how much it stands out in the skyline, even more so from a distance.
Even driving from congested Northern Jersey to the midwest to see family (as I did last week) gives me an inspiring sense of space (I salivate over large parking lots and gas stations with extra lanes to maneuver your car around in).
Okay, so maybe it's sad that I find sprawling gas stations inspiring.
If I had to pick one place I've been to that is most inspiring it would be the Oregon coast.
You can't even swim in the water without a wet suit (the water's too cold), but they remain my favorite beaches and the most inspiring ones I've ever been too.
The writer in me would love to have an office with an Oregon Coast view.
What about you? Any inspiring locales?
