The island of Kauai in Hawaii is the most beautiful part of the US I've been to, but it's kind of out of the way.
I also recommend Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah for some stunning scenery.
As for cities, nothing beats NYC. New Yorkers are friendlier than their reputation as well.
I did think of Hawaii but I think it would be too pricey and yes, a bit out of the way. Thanks.
I definitely will go to NYC.
What do you like to do, shopping and entertainment, or outdoor stuff, etc.? There's a lot to do, but a lot of different places depending on your interests. Destin is a shithole.
A little of everything? Too be honest I don't really have any particular interest. I wouldn't mind a little of anything and everything.
Destin...oh well, the traveling is more important than the working.
The easiest and best trip, in my opinion, is to do the Northeastern swing through Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. It's cheap and easy to travel between the cities and there's more history, downtown vibrancy, and culture in these cities anywhere other than Chicago and San Francisco in the U.S and it's such a compact region.
If you have time after that, I would do the west coast swing. San Francisco is absolutely beautiful then you can choose whether you want to do L.A., Disneyland, the beaches, Las Vegas or the Grand Canyon. The trips between everywhere are much longer out west though.
Miami, New Orleans, and Chicago are great cities as well but in my opinion they're sort of out of the way of other interesting places.
I guess it depends on what you want to do though: relax on the beach, hang out in cities, visit national parks?
Yeah, I think it's better to just visit one coast throughout than to fly across and below but there's just so many places that seem interesting.
For now, I think I might go to Miami and Orlando, then head up to New York (and maybe Boston but I don't think I'll have enough time, I only have 3 weeks to travel) and fly to maybe Pheonix for the Grand Canyon. After it will be San Francisco and I'll try to get a couple of days in LA before flying back home at LAX. I know it'll be costly with the flights and all but I think it's a good mixture of shopping, relaxing, and parks or something, right?
Are there any must visit attractions in those cities?
