    Default Roundtrip 2005

    We're real roundtrip lovers and would like to ask for some information. Last years we've been to Idaho, Colorado, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota, Wyoming, California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada. We've seen almost all National parks and big cities there. Now we would like to plan in advantage a new 2005 roundtrip. But where to start and which place to go? Each year it is so difficult to us to make a selection. We're not the bar kind of people and wane see national parks, scenic byways, regional historical sites and other highlights. We wore thinking about the Great Lakes or the Atlanta area or maybe New England with Cape Cod. But the midland is also attracting us. This year we drove 3750 miles in 13 days. We had enough time to take any exit we want. We wane do it next year the same way. Please help us on some new scenic drives/ byways true America!!! We can start in every city in the US!

    Default NorthEast USA

    if you are thinking about coming to the NorthEast, there is a lot to see here. Some places I recommend are Acadia National Park in Maine, several places in Massachusetts (Boston, Plymouth, Cape Cod). In New Hampshire there is the White Mountain area which is very scenic. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is chock full of history. There is always Washington D.C.where there is SO much to see and do.

    If you are interested in exploring an alternative culture, try Pennsylvania Dutch Country in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. There is also an Amish area in Holmes County, Ohio, which is very interesting.

    Good Luck! keep us posted on your plans

    If you have not been to washington d.c. you must go. Every american should see their nations capitol atleast once. You could spend months there and never see everything, plus about 99% of the attractions are free!! Now is a better time to go since the security restrictions are not quite as tight. I believe the white house has resumed tours as well. Definitly an inspirational place if you ask me. also the new WWII memorial is open now. Another favorite of mine is great falls national park just outside of D.C. on the virginia side facing the maryland side, very cool place. Shenandoah national park is only an hours drive away as well. the possibilities and sights are endless. It's one of my favorites can you tell?! whatever you decide, happy road tripping to you!

    Default Great Falls Photos

    Since you mentioned Great Falls Park -- I wanted to know if you had look at Gerald Thurman's road report from there? Some of his Great Falls photos can be viewed directly <a href = "http://azfoo.net/places/dc/pics/999_MorePics/02_GreatFalls/">here<a/>. I think his best photo of the Great Falls is this one:

    nice pics, looks like he was on the maryland side? We only got to spend time on the virginia side. We have almost the exact same pic only from the other side. Interesting to see from a different angle.
