Travel Tuesday: 10 U.S. Cities and Fun Things to Do There

I haven't done a Travel Tuesday post in a while, and I've had some time to blog this weekend, so decided to post a new one today. These are ten cities that Trent and I have visited and think they're pretty cool places to hang out at.

I thought I'd recommend a few things to do in each one, all tried and true by yours truly. And I've linked to my past posts about some of the cities listed. (Just click on the city name to visit a past post about them). Also, my hometown of the Quad Cities is on this list, too. :) Enjoy!
