San Francisco is one of my fave cities in the US. It's pretty unique, real cool peaceful vibe and I highly recommend the Pacific Coast drive down to Big Sur, it's stunning.
Chicago is also a really fun place if you like big cities. Great music, lots to do and great if you like architecture.
I love cities but i prefer natural landscape and beautiful mountains. Any recommendation?
For me I will choose western part of US. Where you can find most tourist spots like in California, Hawaii, Washington, Colorado, Nevada and other amazing states.
To save your budget try to rent vacation homes rather than in hotels. Its much cheaper.
For the west coast like San Francisco, Hawaii, Las Vegas and Los Angeles you may check HelloRelaxation, you can find some good deals there.
Be sure to bring some warm clothes for this time of the year.
I adore Virginia, but then I am biased since I lived there for a year as a student. But it is so full of history and if you want to experience some real southern rednecks, then it is perfect! But I mean, the main appeal is that DC is there I guess, which does have some amazing scenery and museums.
do you need a specific license for vacation homes? I definitely wana go Colorado. Hawaii is just too far away. thanks for your input
thanks for the input. I will try to go there if i have the time
I've been to Vermont and New Hampshire and they're extremely green States. Mt. Washington in NH is a great spot...lots of outdoorsy stuff to do there for sure.
I have only been to LA, Boston-New York and Louisiana-Mississippi -Tennessee area.
LA you can miss and the Boston area has a bit of history of the American Revolution but its nothing special but i just loved the South. We drove in a round trip from new orleans to nashville to memphis and back to new orleans via the delta area. if you are a music fan especially a blues fan its wonderful. it is also scenic ( eg natchez trial parkway) and historic ( civil war stuff around Vicksburg), everyone is friendly and relaxed and the weather is warm. does not get much better than that.
this part of the US is very poor and new orleans is also still getting on its feet so being a tourist here all helps put some money into the local economy.
