I read an article once about various shows that greatly increased awareness and tourism in areas.

The movie Fargo put it on the map, I'm not sure what one does as a tourist there but apparently visits increased and everyone could imitate the local accent upon arrival. Same with Deadwood when the HBO series of same name was running, that I get more as a touristy destination. Some other book/movie (I can't recall the name) nearly doubled the tourism to Savannah .

There are some cities I've never been to that I'm interested in visiting: Denver, Portland OR, Tucson. Never been to Portland ME either.

I like quirky areas & had I a surfeit of time & money I would travel to the areas around Joshua Tree & 29 Palms, also the ruined towns by the Salton Sea. The South is an area I've never explored & I think Nashville to Memphis & down Hwy 61 would be an interesting trip; Savannah also.

There are hundreds of miles of glaciers in Alaska. Some have shown net growth over the past 100 years.

They will not disappear in our lifetime.

No place. I VE seen enough of the country that Everyplace I've seen looks just like some place else. Plus traveling has become a huge pia, and expensive. Its so expensive, I decided to just give it up. I can find enough at home to keep me entertained.

We are too old to venture that far now, shame.

Same for me. I was in Hawaii in 1958. The only state I have not visited is Alaska. Would like to drive up there within the next few years (or take the ferry up and drive back). The wife and I visited Mount Rushmore, and Devil's Tower, a few years ago. I hope you can make it up there.
