The mountains of western NC, the beaches of central Gulf Coast Florida, my new home here in New Orleans.

And I just know I will fall in love with San Francisco whenever I finally make it there.

The Dakotas. I love cruising the back country roads, stopping to scan the pothole marshes for wildlife. Driving 10 or 20 miles without seeing a car. Stopping in the middle of the road to chat with a driver if I do meet one. I once spent a whole week in the Dakotas, just driving around, without going to anyplace in particular. Most towns have a free campground in the town park,sometimes next to a lake you can swim in. It's the most beautiful place in America.

"The treasures found in travel, the chance rewards of travel which make it worth while, cannot be accounted beforehand, and seldom are matters a listener would care to hear about afterwards. -- H. M. Tomlinson, "The Sea and the Jungle" (possibly the best travel book I've ever read, online here:

It depends on why I am in a certain place: for a short visit, I think I would have to say San Francisco. I would never want to live in the bay area again, but what a fun place to visit. For peacefulness and scerenity (spelling) the northern most coast of New England, to spend a lot of time, among really nice people, I would say the south. And for simple tourning, history, excitement altogether, the DC area for sure. Oh and from reading the postings, I forgot about Vegas. If I just want to go someplace for 2 or 3 days, have lots of activitiy, see every style and type of person in the world, relax, have fun, yes, Vegas is the place.

We are outdoor people, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, foodies. NW Arkansas is a favorite because it is close enough for a weekend getaway. Hiking Grand Canyon was amazing. We also love beaches and tropical weather and the culture that goes with it. Appalachicola FL oysters are great. Key West is so much fun! Colorado hiking is beautiful. New Orleans food is awesome. Pretty much anywhere there is good food and fantastic outdoor opportunities we will be happy!

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Oregon yet. Never visited, but it looks lovely...

My favorite US vacation places:

1. Grand Canyon. I've hiked to the bottom of it 7 times (3 times rim to rim)
2. Yellowstone/ Grand Teton National Parks in Wyoming. (Even snowmobiled there in the winter)
3. Mesa Verde National Park (hiking through the Indian ruins is great experience; some require ladder climbing)
4. Las Vegas for conventions.
5. Washington, D.C. (Good place to go with family)
6. Boston (truly enjoyed hiking the freedom trail and seeing historical sites)
7. The Oregon Coast.
8. The islands of Oahu and Maui in Hawaii.
9. Disneyworld (expensive, but a great place to go with kids)
10. Arches National Park in Utah.

I sure do, but the north-central and northwest are much more rural, which I find very appealing, along with much better roads for motorcycle riding!
