Hey Sayda!

Which coast are you considering - east or west (or maybe both)? Knowing that may help people with their recommendations for you.

If I can influence the decision a little - for more scenic coastline - go with the West Coast. I mean I'm from the East Coast and all but I would have to admit that there is more scenery out here on the WC. But til we know more about where you will be going and how long you will be there - can't help much more.

Again, for specific suggestions we need to know which coast you are going to travel. But I too recommend the West. It is definitely more scenic, and there is nothing quite like Northern CA. I've traveled up and down both coasts several times, so when I know where you're planning to go I'll let you know about some must see places.

In North Carolina the outer bank are a lot of fun, beaches but have very nice looking sand dunes. Depending on what you like.

It might be off your path, but Asheville, North Carolina is a great little city to visit in the Southeast. Good music scene, young people, good beers, and a rich history.

I am not sure about New Orleans these days, since Hurricane Katrina, but I imagine it is still in a state of disrepair.

I also recommend Austin, Texas, if you still plan on cutting across the South. It is another great city for reasons similar to Asheville.

A quick trip in and out of Las Vegas is definitely worth it.

As for California, I don't care for much of it south of San Francisco. San Fran is a great town, but expensive - much like everything in California. You should definitely make a stop somewhere in the redwoods in northern Cal. Even if you are not a nature person, the trees there are a must see.

Head up into Oregon and stop at Ashland, a good little town with friendly people. Continue on to Eugene and then north to Portland. All great places.

When you know which cities you intend to visit let us know. That way we can give you some specifics on different establishments that you should check out.
