Any amusement park is overpriced, and sucks on the weekend. Go during the week.
NYC I have down to a science, go the North Bergen, NY. There's a holiday inn there, stay and park your car there, then walk up to the motel 8 and pay
3 dollars a person to go to the NYC bus terminal, subway is there, take subway wherever you want. NY is best during mid fall, winter its cold, wet and
stinky, and the summer its hot and stinky. spring and fall is just stinky.
I hate DC, i got a 300 parking ticket 1 minute after my meter expired, total bs, I was waving the meter made down, but was on the other side of the
cross walk, complete bs. That said, yes lots to see.
Bryce Canyon is nice, but if your going there, there are a ton of things to see, Fly into vegas, cheap tickets from almost everywhere, Death valley is
2hrs west, amazing things in there, then you can keep driving west to see the giant sequoias, or you can head back to vegas then north to St George,
hit Zion while there, hit the northern rim, hit antelope canyon, horseshoe bend, around the corner to the southern rim of the grand canyon, then to
hoover dam, before hitting vegas again. Side note- if you don't party and drink, get your hotels in henderson, DO NOT GET ANYTHING IN VEGAS. Vegas is
nice to see once, with all the lights and the bilagio fountains, etc, but unless you plan to be up till 5am, the music doesn't stop till 2, and the
drunks down shut up till around 4-5am. Henderson is much quieter.
LA is nice, but traffic sucks, and its better in the spring i think. beaches are nice, water is cold though. lots of skin to see though, and food is
pretty good in china town.
New Orleans was over-rated, check out Biloxi instead, nice beach, nice weather, none of the hassle similar food.
Texas is OK, tex-mex is great, there are some really cool stuff down there, go in spring or fall.
Niagara falls Canada is better than USA falls.
Most of my visits corresponded with Thanksgiving to be honest, if you go a couple days before, you can spend thanksgiving day resting in the hotel
from driving all over gods creation, then the following day keep doing stuff. Most places are dead up to thanksgiving day, black friday is good cause
all the women folk that would take there kids places are shopping, which means you dont deal with people till sat-sunday.
You can get cheap airfare out west from Cleveland, or cheap airfare to Europe from NYC.
Best places I visited in Europe was Denmark, Latvia actually, Denmark everyone spoke english and were very friendly, place was clean too, and not alot
of hassle, prices comparable to NYC. Latvia there is a language barrier, HOWEVER, your Euro goes a LONG, LONG way there. also you can take an
overnight cruise or a one way cruise to Stockholm, spend a couple days there exploring the city, (Watch your conversion of Euros to Krons though, and
how much it is in dollars.) don't eat anything fancy, you'll get SCREWED. I wasn't paying attention to exchange rates and wound up paying $300 for
burgers and beers. Still there is alot to see and its a cool place.
Poland is really cool too, your dollar goes a long way, but again, language barrier.
My next euro trip i and flying from nyc to paris, then getting a 5 day euro rail pass and heading south. You can go from paris to barcelona, to bern,
to milan, to venice, then to rome, then fly from Rome back to paris for about 100 each, before heading back. you can spend a couple days at each city
