About Me

hey yall

Alyssa-0004.jpgI’m Alyssa! Welcome to Traveling Alyssa, my travel blog! I started this blog after traveling to over 24 cities in 5 years!

I am 26-year-old travel blogger based in Dallas, Texas!  I’m into history, museums, art, wall murals, and anything else that will help me get to truly know a city and its’ locals!

I’m originally from Cleveland, Ohio. We recently moved to Dallas after living in Miami, Florida for four years!

I’m a die-hard Cleveland sports fan. If you’ve ever been there, you’ll know we are crazy about good food and alcohol.  I am always looking for the best restaurants, ice cream, sweets, and drinks. Yep, I’m a Foodie!

In addition to my travels, I also love to share my outfits (via Like to Know It) and accessories!  I’m passionate about what I share and I aim to gain your trust by only sharing things I loved eating, wearing, experiencing, or drinking!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my website!
