Continuing with my June article about life on the road, I am going to give you insight into some of my favorite cities for art, food, shows, and the overall feel of the city. If you’re looking for somewhere cool to visit for the art scene, you’re an artist looking for new shows or you just like to travel and find cool stuff to do, then enjoy!
Topping my list of art cities that I love to sell art in and see art in, is Pittsburgh. The former steel city is one of the coolest cities that I get to visit. There are two different art shows that I have done in Pittsburgh; 3 Rivers and Shadyside. The people of Pittsburgh are some of the nicest that I have met and they love to support art. Pittsburgh is home to amazing food, including Primanti brothers and crab fries, seriously go to a Pirate’s game, grab some and you will thank me.
After Pittsburgh, it’s hard to choose a clear second place, though Cincinnati, feels like the right fit. The Queen City grabbed my attention based on the short time I stopped to shoot pictures. While I haven’t done an art show here, the time I spent exploring was so memorable. From the green spaces to the tattoo/bar/coffee shop below my Air B&B, Cincy gave me all the coolness I needed.
My third choice wouldn’t be a city, though a drive. My drive between Nashville and Kentucky took me through the Cumberland Gap. While I have seen some amazing landscapes, this drive and scenery top my list. There is really nothing quite like the beauty you will find in this area. Other cool cities and places to see, Columbus, OH, the mountains and scenery of Virginia and West Virginia, Dallas, and Washington DC. Most of my travels so far have been the East Coast, the Eastern area of the mid-west and Texas. Hoping to get further west soon and will have more locations to share!
Thanks for following along and please send me any suggestions of cool places to see, eat, visit, stay, etc.
