The 5 Best Places In The World To Shamelessly Rock A Fanny Pack
I travel a lot. I’ve been to Rome, France, Yankee Stadium, Knott’s Scary Farm, and a ton of other really cool places. I’m a passport-carrying citizen of the world, and yet I still get scoffs and dirty looks when I rock my fanny pack. What gives?!
Fanny packs are both functional and stylin’. Some cake-sniffers refuse to acknowledge how special they are, but that doesn’t stop us proud fanny fans from fanny packing from city to city. We are proud of who we are, and there are dozens of wonderful attractions near and far that welcome us with open arms. Beautiful, understanding places to wear fanny packs.
The Swedes are great people. They’re always smiling and nice to me! And guess what? They love fanny packs. When I was traveling with my pen pal, Steve, in Stockholm last November, we wore our under-tummy treasure troves with pride. I could easily store the gummy candies and trinkets I acquired along the way, and I never had to worry about losing my passport! No stares. No scoffs. All smiles.
Epcot Center, Disney World (Orlando, Florida)
Imagine looking out upon a sea of fanny brethren happily wearing their khaki shorts and fun hats, unburdened by bulky pockets and living in the moment because they know where all their things are. This little slice of heaven is called Epcot Center. I go back every April to this place to wear fanny packs, visit all the fun little countries, get all my cultural learning in, and feel safe with my people.
Any Doobie Brothers Show (Various Locations)
Old dudes letting loose is the perfect recipe for fanny pack fun. When you’re at a Doobie show, you might have a beer or partake in Mother Nature’s medicine, so you definitely don’t want to worry about where your stash of mints are. Enjoy the grooves of America’s favorite Southern brothers and dance the night away while your fanny pack flaps free.
The Mall of America (Minneapolis, MN)
The Mall of America is fanny pack central. I love strutting around this fanny haven with my precious cargo zipped up right under my belly. Last October, on one of my many trips to the Midwest to see Uncle Rick, I struck up one of the best conversations of my life outside the Bath & Body Works, all because a fellow fanny fan complimented my Snoopy fanny pack. We even became Facebook friends!
