Ok...we've made the big decission to travel the US starting in So Cal and taking 6-8 weeks to see the USA. I'm just starting the planning for an Sept/Oct trip. starting north and heading east ...down the east coast and across the south to head home...oh and the trip is based around my 4 kids ages 13, 11.9 and 6. The only "must dos" are Washington DC, and civil war history stuff all around the east coast. So here is my question...what are the "must see" or "must do" in the US? We are up for anything and everything. I'm looking for fun/educational/adventure...What are your top 10/20 places you loved to go to? I started researching all the great places to go and I'm a little over-whelmed and would love some 1st hand advice.
thanks so much!
