So it's a little last minute, but I have a week this summer to take a trip somewhere in the U.S. that's "different" according to my wife and somewhat outdoors. A few of my ideas (place I've never been):
1. Hawaii or Alaska (though those might be TOO last minute)
2. Somewhere in the Pacific Northwest -- Portland etc.
3. Grand Canyon
5. California -- Drive the coastline, Redwood forest, a city? LA, San Francisco?
If you have any tips on the places listed, I'd love to know, or any other ideas. Don't consider money, I just want ideas.
