As part of our “Slice of Americana Series,” every Saturday in July we’ve been sharing links to fellow bloggers who write about their lives and adventures in the USA. This week we’ll wrap up the series by featuring The East.
But first, we want to say thank you to all the inspiring bloggers we’ve featured this month. Your experiences and life stories have made this series a success. Also, thank YOU for your comments – both thoughtful and hilarious. You keep us stoked!

1. NORTH CAROLINA
We used to live in Asheville, North Carolina. So when I read this post from Liz at Be Love Live I couldn’t stop smiling. Here are her 10 Things Only People From Asheville Understand.
Elin at Traveling Near and Far traded life in Norway to live in Vermont. If, like me, you’ve never been ice fishing, then you’re in for a treat!
Annalee at Tavola Del Mondo will inspire you to head for the Connecticut countryside when you see her photos from a weekend in Lyme.
4. WEST VIRGINIA<
JoLynn at West Virginia Mountain Mama recounts the Wood Choppers Festival, proving that the spirit of Paul Bunyan is alive and well in the woods of West Virginia.
Jonathan at Travel the Vale knows how to capture the vibe of the Wilmington waterfront.
Meg and I must be kindred spirits. Whenever the summer heat gets to be too much for me, I think of heading to Maine. Evidently I’m not alone.
Bridget at A Traveling B writes about the 2013 Boston Marathon tragedy, and the triumph in 2014.
Chau at just1stepaway reminds us that there’s nothing better than a cool library – especially the George Peabody Library in Baltimore. They still have a card catalog!
9. NEW HAMPSHIRE
Laura at Touring New Hampshire has a goal to visit every town and city in the state. A trip to the town of Pittsburg shows her keen eye for detail.
And we can’t forget our crown jewel …
10. WASHINGTON DC
If you really want to see Washington DC, then there’s no better vantage point than the Washington Monument. Robin at photographybykent was there the day it reopened (after 3 years of earthquake repairs) to capture these images.
Have a great weekend!
A LITTLE LAGNIAPPE (something extra) …
Brenda at Get Jazzed About Music asks “Do you know your state’s song?” Ours is “Georgia on my Mind” by Ray Charles. What’s yours?
Dina at Wine and Cheese Doodles is an American currently living in Copenhagen. She came home for a visit this July and shares the 10 things she misses about the USA.
