I am surprised by the numerous people choosing New Orleans. I don't have anything good to say about that city.. So I'm not saying it

I would fly up to Alaska for a guided fishing trip. I'd love to tackle some of the big salmon and halibut they have up there.

Ah, the Big EZ! I haven't been to New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina, but I used to live near there. I loved it. I'm sure most of the touristy sites have been restored. It's one of those places that everyone should see at least once...and sample all the great food. Some beignets would be great right about now with my tea.

Definitely would try Huntsville Alabama. I am a NASA NUT! I hear that Space and Rocket center is worth seeing for people of that interest.

Right. A free trip is not a free trip unless you would have paid for the trip had it not been free.

Another vote for Guam. I'm Guamanian, but haven't been to the island in almost 25 years.

Hawaii or Pacific NW would be other options. PNW because of family, not because I particularly care about the area.

This doesn't say you have be within the US. So can I get a free flight from Glasgow? How about Hawaii?
