2018

As I sit here and reflect on the incredible journeys 2017 has brought me, I can’t help but start thinking about what 2018 will bring!!

I’ve had an obsession with traveling, exploring, and discovering since I was a little kid, and the obsession has only GROWN!

A few months ago I created this web site with the hope to find really great places and share them for other people to enjoy, and I never expected it to evolve in the way that it has and become what it was CREATED to be: the site and RESOURCE people use to find the places they HAVE to go to while in a city! It really is a dream come true, and the expansion projected for next year is challenging but it’s going to be well worth it!

Here is SOME of what 2018 has in store, and what you guys can be looking forward to:

-New York City, New York

-Boston, Massachusetts

-South Carolina (Inman area)

-North Carolina (Kill Devil Hills area)

-Richmond, Virginia

-And possibly Memphis, Tennessee; Las Vegas, Nevada; parts of California

I hope to hear from you all about where you want to see featured in some of these places, or other cities you want me to explore! As always, feel free to email me at chelsea@youhavetogoto.com or comment on this post! Thank you all for your love and support this year!

Wood’s Orchard

If you haven’t already, you HAVE to go to Woods Orchard in Hampton, Virginia! This family owned and operated farm offers some really great things.

1. PUMPKIN PICKING! Not only do you have the option to buy a pre-picked pumpkin, you also can grab a wagon and some pruning shears and explore their pumpkin fields and cut your own pumpkin off of its vine! They have every size available, white and orange colors, and multicolored ones! It’s a really awesome experience and a great outing for families, friends, or partners! Caution: prepare to get your hands a little dirty!

2. HAY RIDES! They offer hay rides on the weekends (and though I personally haven’t done it) it seems like it would be a nice ride!

3. FRESH PRODUCE! They offer a wide variety of food: apples, mangos, lemons, cabbage, zucchini, squash, peppers, and so much more!

4. STRAWBERRY PICKING! They have pre-picked, and strawberry picking available during the spring!

5. AND SO MUCH MORE! (Meat, fruit butters, dog food, etc.)

The pictures below show you the different sizes of pumpkins they have: tiny to ENORMOUS! And for all 5 of the pumpkins I purchased, I only paid $20 where more grocery stores charge nearly that per pumpkin! Pumpkin picking is a great fall experience, and something that’s an annual event for me. And if I were you, I would make it a tradition too. You HAVE to go to Woods Orchard!
