    Well, see 3 of my bestfriends and I are in desperate need of advice. We don't have a whole lot of money because we need to save it for college spending. But, we do have a decent amount. We are from Columbus, Ohio, and we want to travel maybe the East Coast, South Carolina, N. Carolina, Outer Banks area? New Orleans? Don't really care, but Somewhere exciting, and within a 7 day range... We will camp sometimes, (we are Ex-Girl Scouts) LoL, but we are also known to indulge in a few luxuries and parties....We want to go somewhere with young adults, NO RETIREMENT FOLKS! PLEASE HELP US...
    We like adventures as far as canoeing and hiking, but we don't want the whole trip to be about that... Two of us are 18, two of us are 17...That may present some problems... How will this hinder our trip!!

    Default the Midwest is a boring

    I agree with you completely. My three best friends and I who have been together for 12 years are planning a trip out of the Midwest. We live in the Detroit suburbs and want to do a somewhat triangular trip going down along the mississippi river to New Orleans, hang a righty to visit aunt and uncle in Atlanta, then take I-75 back home. What are some good areas to stop and see. We want barbeque and more barbeque, any ideas.....

  3. Default Map reading!

    If you go down the Mississippi and turn a rightie, I'm afraid it will be a VERY long time until you get to Atlanta and I-75! :-) There is Mark Twain's hometown at Hannible, Mo. St. Louis has bar-b-q AND a neat museum tucked under their fabled arch. And try Mudd Island in the middle of the river at Memphis. You're too young probably for Graceland, but if you stay along the gulf there are resorts. There are scads of guys at the Pensacola Naval Air Station with it's Naval Aviation museum. You could cut across Ga and see President Carter's hometown. And there is a world reknown hang-gliding site on Lookout Mt. at Chattanooga. And if you look to the left as you cross into Ohio on I-75 (not the bypass) you may see the 'Spaceship House' nestled on the hill. Have fun!!

    Yeah, I think I have a change of plans. I think we would really love to visit the Boston Area, trip around Vermont and so forth. Don't really know a whole lot about the area, but that's the great thing about these trips, right!! So, if anyone has any suggestions that may be of help for two 18 year olds and two 17 year olds, that you think we may enjoy in the Boston area e-mail me!!!

    Default End of Senior Year Road Trip

    My three friends and I are also planning a road trip to celebrate high school graduation. We want about a weeklong trip, and the only negative aspect is that they left all the planning to me.

    So far I have decided that we need to hit the states of (starting point Chicago) Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin before returning to Illinois. The theme for this trip is Disc Golf Courses and we plan to play 2-3 courses a day (courses can be researched at www.pdga.com). The main goal of this trip is CHEAP, and any cost cutting ideas would be greatly appreciated. What is the cheapest way to lodge: campsites or youth hostels?

    thanks
