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

4. Yellowstone

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.

Go to Portland and start a shoegaze, indie band.

I live in the Portland area. It's a great place to visit if you like art, books, and micro brews. Also, summers are pretty mild for the most part.

Hawaii if you can afford it.
