  1. These facts are amazing! They are extremely useful for those residents of US who do not have a passport but intend to travel👍🏻 You have done some thorough secondary research for this one it shows! Great work, keep sharing😊

  2. I’m a late bloomer when it comes to international travel–only recently applied for my passport. So I definitely appreciate spots in and around the US that I can get to without a passport. Florida Keys and Catalina Island are two places on my list!
