San Francisco, New Orleans, Sante Fe, the canyon country of southern Utah starting at Moab to northern AZ, Alaska.

Places I would like to see: Joshua Tree area, Portland, Savannah, possibly Tucson & Asheville for retirement scouting, maybe Austin & Nashville for a couple days for music.

If I didn't live here already I would want to visit NYC often, but Brooklyn & Queens would be the main focus now.

Went to Portland in 2014 for the "truck food", hugely disappointed.

Nothing but a bunch of sandwich/gyro places. The quality wasn't superb, the price wasn't very high but not a great deal for the subpar food.

The most walkable cities in the US are probably NYC (mainly Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn), Boston, San Francisco, parts of Washington DC, parts of Philadelphia and Chicago. Am I missing anything?


I think Boston is one the best and cleanest walkable cities in the US. We once walked through most of the downtown Boston with a stroller and it was a lot of fun.

This past October, we had a great 3 night 4 day stay in the Colorado Springs area. We spent one night in Manitou Springs, two nights in Downtown Colorado Springs. While there we checked out the town of Manitou Springs, drove up to Pike's Peak Summit, hiked at Garden of the Gods, ran in Red Rock Canyon, and had some really great food and drinks along the way. I loved that everything was close by and we stayed in very convenient locations to what we wanted to do so, after flying into Denver and driving down to Colorado Springs, we did not have a lot of driving around after that.

If you are interested in a similar itinerary, message me and I can let you know where we stayed.

We love the Smoky Mountains. The hikes, drives. Just beautiful. We've been wanting to go back to San Francisco. Beautiful and fun city!
