I agree on that one,I have family there in Clyde and Waynesville.

I agree with them about the Blue Ridge Parkway! On the other coast, although Los Angeles is terrible, go up into the Mountains (Bear Lake area) near LA. I also hear Bishop, CA is nice and has great fishing. Gotta see Mt. Rushmore (Keystone is a nice little town to visit near Rushmore). Concrete (yes Concrete), WA is nice too you can fish the Skagit River or go up Mt. Baker to Baker Lake. There are tons of nice rivers in NW Washington (check out Leavenworth for a great Bavarian town, and outdoor activities). Helen, GA is a nice area too. There are so many great places to visit! I envy your ability to travel the country, I hope you have lots and lots of fun for those of us stuck at home!

Kentucky is a beautiful state as well with the rolling hill, mountains of Eastern Kentucky and the bluegrass region as well. Lovely!

The Adirondacks in upstate New York are beautiful. The hiking there is great, the fishing is great, the activites are great, the lakes are crystal clear, the roads are scenic, the streams, the rapids, the rivers.

The Finger Lakes are also beautiful and so is Letchworth State Park. Roling hills of grapevines, this is Wine Country.

Rock City Park is also amazing. It displays 3-4 story gigantic conglomerate rocks. You can hike over, under, around, and through them. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere they're there because the ocean was once there. It's in western New York.

The Thousand Islands Seaway is also really cool, especially if you're into fishing and boating.

Long Island is relaxing with its quaint fishing villages.

And who can forget NYC to go along with all that?!

New York is one of the most under-rated states, if not, THE most under-rated. People blow off the rest of the state because they think NYC's the only thing here. Well, it's not, New York is very beautiful.

And if you come here, you can also head out to Cape Cod, Maine, Boston, and Philly.
