I would fly to Iowa on a free flight. We visit Las Vegas every year, but I can't convince my wife to come with me to Iowa.

Lol. I'm not sure if you're joking about Iowa, because most people would laugh at that answer, but I love the place.

For me, Bozeman, Montana or Seattle. Both near awesome national parks.

I'm very serious about Iowa. I would love to visit there. To mix with real middle Americans for a short while would be great. I love images I see of Iowa...... miles of crops. I should have been a farm boy!

It's one of America's best kept secrets. The state and Des Moines, in particular, are always near the top of every list of the best places to live in America. I guess the winter and corn scares everyone away!

Want to go see the Grand Canyon in Arizona, because that is the state where my husband is.

I took the mule trip down and back YEARS ago. ('74?) It was a fun day trip. My wife would never, ever do it. We've been to the Grand Canyon. She'd sit in the car while I went out near the edge to take pictures. She does not like heights!

I lived and worked at Grand Canyon for two years, 1978-1980. What a wonderous place to live! I did most of the touristy things but I never did do the mule trip. Seems like you had to make reservations way ahead of time. About as bad as booking a rafting trip! I grew up where I live now and I'm about 143 miles, a little over two hours, from there. Haven't gone in years though. This time of year is particularly spectacular at the Canyon with the Monsoons in affect. The sunsets are absolutely awesome.

Probably Hawaii, since I've never been there. I wouldn't mind going back to Alaska for a vacation either. Lived there two years and saw a lot but so much more to see! And then there's New Orleans, LA or St. Augustine, FL or....
