Hi there.. :)
I've been with Jane for 11 years... and we're getting married in September. on the 28th we fly to New York for a few days then spend 18 days driving across the US seeing as many of the places we've always dreamed of seeing.
The full list (as it stands... it will change no doubt over the coming months) as follows..... (copied and pasted from our honeymoon website, too late to be typing all that)
New York - for all the touristy stuff, film locations and just to experience it.
Washington - Who wouldn't want to see all that iconic stuff, The Whitehouse, Lincoln Memorial and Capitol Hill and so many others.
Niagara Falls - Well you just have to, don't you?
Chicago - Blowing into the windy city is one of Jane's big dreams.
Memphis - Gracelands, Elvis and all that... (for Jane)
New Orleans - Hurricanes allowing we want to see the place and spend some cash to get that beautiful city get back on it's feet!
Amarillo - can someone show us the way!! (song reference)
Colorado Springs- Garden of the gods and Stargate Command (Cheyenne Montain)
Rapid City - Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Mountain Memorial
Devil's Tower - Doo Doo Doo Dur DURRR! (Close Encounters of the 3rd kind - for all you non sci-fi people)
Yellowstone National Park - Old Faithful and Yogi and Booboo
Monument Valley - We wanna be in a real life western!
A few places in Arizona - Including the petrified forest, a meteor crater and possibly Camp Verde
Las Vegas - Vegas, baby!!! and the surrounding wonders of the Grand Canyon, Valley of Fire and the Hoover Dam. And as close to Area 51 as we can get without being arrested or abducted!!!
Death Valley - No stopping!!! We don't want to fry, but it's there and you just have to do it if it's there!!!
Los Angeles - Hollywood and all that, and if the budget stretches a night at the notorious Chateau Marmont.
Yosemite - via the pacific highway to see El Capitan and then into...
San Francisco - and a trip over the Golden Gate Bridge and a bit of sight seeing after we return the motorhome. 1 or 2 nights in a hotel, then a long flight home to our newly married life!
I'll be reading through the rest of this forum (what a find) over the coming week, and be getting lot of help no doubt.... and i'll probably be asking some questions. But if anyone has any help.. things we're doing wrong.. places we should be seeing... places to avoid etc.. then we'd love some pointers :)
