1. Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia - Great hiking in the Highland's National Park along with some pretty interesting history around Louisbourgh.
2. The Olympic Peninsula in Washington - Mountains and Ocean, two trips in one.
3. The San Juan range of the Rockies - Especially around Ouray. Super hiking and off-roading.
4. The Oregon Coast - You really don't realize how many state parks are on that coast. Walk out on the rocks at Otter Crest to visit the seals. Just don't get between mom and her pups.
5. SE Arizona - Love the high desert and a couple of little gems for hiking spot are the Chiricahua National Monument and the Cochise Stronghold in the Coronado National Forest.
1. New England. I have always wanted to go there. It would be awesome to see all the historical sites there and the fishing villages.
2. Alaska. I would enjoy the pure isolation.
3. Appalachian mountains. Very historic and I love hillbillies.
4. Montana. I have heard this place has the best views. After all the call it “big sky country”
5. Saskatchewan, Canada. I would enjoy all the lakes and open wilderness. Would also be fun to visit Grey Owl's cabin "Beaverlodge".
1) New York - always gives me a sense of appreciation, renewal, and fun. NY symbolizes hope for me.
2) Florida - relax, enjoy the warm weather (especially in the winter when the northern part of the US freezes)
3) Arches National Park - amazes me from its structure and the beauty all around that hike.
4) New England - so much history and so much to see and do
5) San Diego - another fun getaway that's relaxing, I drive to different water parks from there, always a bonding experience with my family even though we are all grown up
1. Austin - go see the spasmatics
2. Chicago - Watch the Cubs
3. Vegas - See Penn & Teller
4. NYC - See wicked
5. San Fran - gay pride
I did the West coast and Southwest recently and adore this area of the USA. I think a trip from LA to San Fran via the Pacific Coast Highway has to be on this list. I wouldn't mind doing a tour of National Parks on vacation in the future. I feel like Las Vegas is a must-visit in the USA. It has something for everyone. As with New Orleans and NYC. Is that 5?
New York, Yosemite, Canadian Rockies, Everglades, and the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC
