Home is where the heart is….home sweet home…there’s no place like home. Dorothy, Toto and all the originators of these sayings definitely got it right. Home is your go-to place to escape the troubles of the world. Your Castle. But sometimes… you have to get up, get out and experience all the world has to offer to appreciate home that much more when you return. Living your best life includes leaving the palace and connecting with others to increase your life experiences. So of course we at Elevate Lifestyle have compiled a list of some of the best places to go in August for the HOME issue; and once you’re done, you can go back to your million dollar spot.
