Still a long way off, but starting to seriously consider / plan where to go and what to do so that I can get better deals etc. by booking early. Looking to travel for 8-10 weeks around May/June/July/August and am not really interested in doing the "usual stuff" (for example, I have no desire to go to Disney Land / World). My current plan (for lack of a better term) is to pick 8-10 areas and spend a week tripping around them. Current list is relatively short: Canada (British Columbia & the Rockies only) Hawaii Washington State / Oregon New York City "The South" (Texas, Louisiana, etc.) Nevada / Arizona (more interested in Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam than Las Vegas) Would also love to spend a bunch of time at the Smithsonian (Natural History, Air & space, etc.) Anyone got some ideas for other "off the beaten track" spots to enjoy, no wife or kids in tow - just me.
