Among the United States' most recognizable and beloved outdoor landmarks—like Yosemite Valley, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, and countless others—you might be surprised to know that Sleeping Bear Dunes was voted America's most beautiful outdoor destination. In this week's episode of Monica Goes, you'll get a peek at the reasons why: serene woodland walks, enormous sand dunes, and the azure hues of Lake Michigan.

All that, plus, Monica digs into local life on the Lower Peninsula in Traverse City, Michigan. To celebrate a summer of women in the outdoors, we're "touring" the U.S. with Monica Ortega, the host of the adventure travel series Monica Goes. Follow along with us throughout the months of July and August while Monica circles the country in search of adventure.

 


Follow along as Monica tours the nation in search of adventure.

Next week, Monica takes over Billings, Montana.

 

Monica Goes was established in 2014 to remind us that you don't need to be an expert or an adrenaline junkie to go on epic adventures. Being afraid of everything, Monica's goal was to show people you don't need to let your fears hold you back from doing something you love. If she can do it, then anyone can! Read more about Monica and Monica Goes at MonicaGoes.com. Find this and every episode of Monica Goes on YouTube, and don't forget to subscribe!

Women in the Wild 2019

Women in the Wild is a movement that recognizes the amazing women who enrich the outdoor community with their passions, inspirations, and accomplishments. Outdoor Project is proud to grow this campaign in 2019 with the help of guest editor and 2018 #womaninthewild Georgina Miranda, adventurer, entrepreneur, mountaineer, and founder and CEO of She Ventures. We're proud to open our platform once again for the incredible stories and photography of women throughout our community. From in-depth interviews with outdoor advocates, influencers, and athletes to female-focused content from the community, Women in the Wild 2019 aims to amplify the voice of women in celebration of female fortitude, strength, and camaraderie in the outdoors.
