By Tarah Chieffi @tarahchieffi

Travel is a huge part of my life and you can't really know me until you know my favorite beach, my favorite airport, and the place I got in over my head on a bike ride and my husband had to push me part of the way.

Get To Know Tarah Through My Favorite Places In the World Places

  • Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore
    • tarahchieffi

      The most instagram-able view I've seen - When I was pregnant with my second child, my husband and I traveled to Italy. On our climb to the top of the Duomo, I got many, many comments on how pregnant I was (though I was passing most of those commenters), but the view from the top was worth it.

  • Venice Marco Polo Airport
    • tarahchieffi

      My favorite airport - How can you not love an airport where you step off the plane and step onto a water taxi to get to your hotel?

  • San Diego
    • tarahchieffi

      The place I dream about retiring in - I might change my mind by the time I get to retirement age, but it's got my favorite things – good food, good coffee, beaches, and close proximity to numerous theme parks.

  • Santa Marinella
    • tarahchieffi

      The best place to NOT get nakey and skinny-dip - This beach is gorgeous, but the water is freezing! I couldn't go much further than my knees.

  • Sanibel Island
    • tarahchieffi

      The place I had my first travel crush - I vaguely remember trying to impress boys when my parents took us to Sanibel as teens.

  • Cinnamon Club
    • tarahchieffi

      The restaurant that blew my taste buds away - I lucked out on an invite from my husband's co-workers while I tagged along on a business trip and it ended up being one of the best meals of my life!

  • Barefoot Pool Bar
    • tarahchieffi

      The bar that has my favorite drink - The pool bar at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort has a Lime Dole Whip Margarita with a Tajin rim that I can drink all day.

  • Pass-a-Grille Beach
    • tarahchieffi

      The best beach Iv'e ever been to - it's less touristy than St. Pete Beach and less crowded.

  • Mammoth Cave
    • tarahchieffi

      The place that made me happy about no cell service - backcountry camping at Mammoth Cave National Park. We hiked in about 10 miles and camped for the night. Our friends told us it was close to water, but we ended up hiking through tall grass (and wondering how many snakes there were) and then shimmying down a steep dirt hill to get to said water.

  • New Orleans
    • tarahchieffi

      The next destination on my bucket list - I've never been to New Orleans so my husband gifted me beignet mix, chicory coffee, and a small voodoo doll keychain for Christmas as his way of telling me we were finally going this year.

  • Ypsilanti
    • tarahchieffi

      The place I went on my first trip - It wasn't a vacation, my family uprooted us from Florida and moved here for a couple years. My sister was born here and we moved back to Florida shortly after. Luckily
