About a year ago I created this list titled “7 Places I Want to Travel to Before I’m 30“. This list consists of overseas destinations and destinations spread across the US. Out of the US locations, Colorado was one that made the list. I had been to Colorado once before, but I had strictly stayed in downtown Denver, so this time around I wanted to see more. Now, due to COVID restrictions and wildfires burning, this was going to be hard, but I was determined to get out of Wisconsin at least one more time this year. Trying to eliminate risk factors of contracting COVID, we hopped in our car and drove trough the night instead of flying. This worked in our benefit for two reason. One: We had decided on a more scenic Denver CO for the first 2 days and a scenic Fort Collins CO for the remainder of our stay, so having our jeep was a great decision. Two: Traveling with a toddler can be tricky, so driving while he was asleep solved all tantrum, meal, and potty stop issues. None the less, if you are looking for a little guide to Colorado, look no further. Here’s what we did:
Fried chicken. The Mother Teresa of the south. The Beyonce of soul food. The love of my life.
…okay maybe not the last one. But fried chicken is damn good, obviously, but wanna know what’s even better?
Nashville hot chicken.
Listen ya’ll this stuff is GOOD. So good, I’ve eaten it twice a day on more than one occasion (oops). So when I was actually in Nashville over the summer, of course I had to hunt down the best of the best. And let me just tell you. It was fire (literally and figuratively).
