    Tampa, Florida. Plenty to do in the Tampa area and Orlando is only 2 hours away.

    I love the NE and NW coasts. New England in the Fall is just beautiful.

    I grew up ninety miles east of San Francisco and I heartily endorse all of Northern/Central California as a vacation destination.

    To the west you have the City, Napa and Sonoma, Santa Cruz and Monterey. A little farther north on the coast you have Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, the Russian River area, and of course the redwoods.

    To the east you have the Gold country in the Sierra foothills, Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park (Giant seqoia trees!). Go a little farther east still and you have the stunning gem that is Lake Tahoe.

    If you like funky little farming communities, drive the levee roads of the Stockton Delta. Locke and Rio Vista were always favorite stops of mine.

    I've also come to appreciate mid-sized American cities as vacation destinations. Think Kansas City, Nashville, Austin, Memphis, Tucson, etc. These places usually have incredible amenities - art museums, restaurants, places of historical significance - at much cheaper prices than larger cities like NYC and Chicago. NYC and Chicago are great destinations as well, just don't discount the smaller cities because you think there might be nothing to see there. There is a LOT to see.

    I think this may be my next road trip with the Primal Wolf Cub.

    Dune surfing rocks! The park rangers at Monahans State Park were particularly friendly when I visited a few years back.

    Scrubby West Texas is gorgeous.

    Vancouver and Victoria (especially Victoria), BC: any season but autumn is both beautiful and holiday-friendly.

    The problem with vacation in North America is that it's just so cut off from the rest of the world. Nowhere to go in North America but North America!
