Advice for places to travel in the USA/Canada?

I'm planning on doing some travelling by bus in late February or early March. I will have a couple months to do so, and want to see as much as I can I have friends on both coasts of Canada. I will also be going to LA and maybe Miami at various points.

However, I can't think of too many places in the interior that I'd like to visit. A friend told me to see Austin, TX, and I want to see Chicago for myself.... but aside from those two, almost everything that I have planned is on the coast or near the gulf

Any recommendations? General ones are welcome too, they don't just have to be for cities in the interior!

what kind of things do you like to do? Do you want cities with a great night life? do you like casinos? do you prefer to do the whole tourist thing and visit landmarks?

You should visit San Antonio. It's a beautiful city. So is Atlanta.

hmmm, Myrtle Beach & Charleston both in SC... The Outer banks of NC. Las vegas is always good. San Francisco is also nice.

As far as teh interior...I always wanted to go St. Louis, the Grand Canyon, mt. Rushmore, and take a river cruise up the Mississippi river.

I'd like to try a bit of everything this trip. I will be on a budget, so my casino experience will be limited but I intend to try one out in Las Vegas at some point since I should be in that neck of the woods anyways. I'm not HUGE on visiting landmarks and blah, I prefer to just sit and have a coffee at a local park and people watch But I will make time for a few things, I imagine. I love museums, btw, so if anybody has any ideas on that note keep me posted!

Thanks for the input, everybody

If you make it to Austin, I highly recommend to drop an hour south to San Antonio. Also, I dont know if like crowded places but I definetly recommend going to New York.

Thanks, I'll look into San Antonio. Anything special I should do there If it's that close I would probably just go for the day to save switching hostels.

I loooove New York City, I go every summer. But yes, I'll go again anyways! I'm thinking it will be one of my last stops before going home. Thanks for suggesting it anyways
