    Every state has multiple cities and in many cases, if you've seen one you've seen them all. But there is only one Grand Canyon, one Everglades, one Yellowstone, one Death Valley etc etc. I am currently on vacation in Florida (visiting my wife's father). I am near Clearwater but am taking in the natural attractions such as snorkeling with the manatees in Crystal River, visiting Homosassa Springs State Park, etc.

    Look for the natural wonders or unique experiences that are found nowhere else.

    For example, rather than staying in Miami, you could drive down the Florida Keys to Key West. You could even take the ferry 70 miles out to sea and visit DRY TORTUGAS NATIONAL PARK for the day.

    When you are in the Orlando area, check if there are any rocket launches at Cape Kennedy. Not a natural wonder, but a unique experience.

    When you get home and share your vacation experiences with others who have visited the states, they will be surprised at what they had missed.

    Hello again,

    I have a question regarding Yosemite. We are planning three nights in Mammoth Lakes. Is that a town that can be a base for visits to Yosemite? Or is it better to drive trough and live somewhere on the other side?

    One more question, is there a function to search on this site? There's sooo many treads but it's hard to find what I am looking for :)

    Thank you for your answer.

    Yes I understand what you say. It's just hard to know what is out there when I've never been. And we also like cities so to just to natural wonders is not our kind of trip either, we want to combine nature and cities.
    We are planning to go back to Florida and do a roundtrip just there so I will save your tip about Key West until then! :D Thanks!

    I think it's easy to plan to much into one trip, but unfortunatly we've already bought the flight. We are really looking forward to our trip and hope to make the most of it, even though it's a long way! :)

    Mammoth lakes is not a good base for visiting Yosemite NP as all the main areas of the park are on the other side of the mountains. There are lodgings inside the park but you can also find some in Mariposa, El Portal and Groveland etc. Oakhurst has a larger selection of lodgings, but is about an hour away.

    Okey, then I'll drive trough Yosemite and stay on the other side. Do you know how much it costs to go into the park?

    It's $30 for a vehicle and occupants valid for 7 days. If you were visiting 4 or more major parks it's cheaper to buy the annual pass for $80

    Default Accommodation.

    For your accommodation, don't overlook the Yosemite Bug, a rustic but very nice and welcoming place at Mid Pines (from memory). It is some years since I stayed there.
