I'm from Syracuse, NY (well, not exactly, but I did grow up there) - there are a lot of fun things to see and do there, depending on what exactly you're looking for.

I adored my trip to Washington D.C. - it was amazingly beautiful, something wonderful and interesting happened every time I walked down a street, and people were SO polite. I didn't have a bad experience in New York, but I didn't like it either... but D.C. was perfect.

If you wait until the spring Mammoth Cave in Kentucky is really cool they have the longest caves in the world some go all the way to arizona, I studied Kentucky history and geography in high school, and Land Between the Lakes is wonderful. They have a huge wildlife preserve and have an old timey town where people dress like the early settlers and live like they did. And it has great little shops. And hense the name two lakes one on either side. And the fishing and the beaches on both lakes are great. And in TN there is the smokey mountians and Dollywood All of which are very beautiful but in the winter its best to go to Land Between the Lakes if it starts snowing it gets pretty cold here and the we have what we call black ice. But otherwise its great place to visit and even better place to live

st augustine is the oldest city in america and REALLY neat in spring or fall or sometimes winter

taos and santa fe are fantastic..

the florida keys, Key west, are great. If you are into birdwatching the west coast of florida, sanibel island is supposed to be great. I always wanted to check out seattle. NYC is definitely worth a trip.

thanks for the great ideas so far

Dan isnt into adventure..isnt into going out to clubs with me..only his friends, he doesnt like exotic food and hates shoping. Boy what bum hunh?

I love educational places like muesums, historic sites etc. I lOVE Washington D.C. but he doesnt feel up for that. I would like some place beachy like Key West FL but I need to persuade him it isnt for old foggies! whats hip there to do? lol

I also like outdoorsy types of things.. I am well rounded when it comes to activities so like just about anything.

You can get lots of history in New England. There are plenty of outdoorsy things to do also.

Hmm. What's more or less close to Wisconsin? My immediate reaction is "cheese"!
Chicago/the Great Lakes? Canada? Do you have any Indian reservations nearby? How about factory outlets?

I want to go to New England on a vacation SO bad..... I just have to get John to agree

I'm in the same boat you are - I'm stick right next door (MN! ) And there just isn't much around here, except Chicago, which I love to visit!

Just head on over to the Wisonsin Dells! Thats always bound to be a great vacay, I love it there in the summer!

I liked Boston and the Cape Cod and Cape Ann area.

HELLO!!!
I totally wanted to go to Boston or Virgina...my bf just laughed!
I think virgina would be very educational!

I dont mind driving or flying.
I want to go to some place where I can drink mixed drinks all day and put my stubby toes in the sand...he doesnt. So since i am stuck in the states I suggested Flordia or Cali...naaaa to party-ish for dan and not some place he wants to go with just his girlfriend. soooo, I am thinking maybe texas or virgina possible New Orleans.

you guys have no idea how much of weenie dan is!

Well if he is from Wisconsin originally they don't like to stray far from home!!
Tell him there are beaches in Virginia too-virginia beach for instance!!
Too bad about Vegas-if its been awhile you should really try it again.

Come to Chicago....it's like going to New York except way better and way cheaper and there is TONS to do and it's beautiful.

Ok, end shameless plug.

Virginia is a beautiful place, no matter what season you visit. There are mountains if you prefer the nature stuff, there are beaches if you like the ocean, D.C. is just 3 hours' drive pretty much from anywhere in the state, there's Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement, fishing, golf, amusement parks, loads of Civil War history ... and Richmond has some great restaurants/clubs/nightlife/culture if you are into any of those things.

I also really loved Boulder, CO and I like going up Michigan's UP and the Traverse City area. I used to go to Interlochen...there are a lot of state parks and vineyards and shops and the lakeshore is gorgeous

New Mexico is an amazing place. We like Santa Fe and Taos a lot. We like the food, the climate, the mountains, the museums, the art, and it even smells good (the pinon).

Cheers, from

Hello I grew up in Wisconsin Most of my family still lives there I love the country there.

Anyway I just visited Colorado for the 1st time a few months ago it is a beautiful place to visit. They have a place called the Garden of the Gods that is beautiful.

I live in Oklahoma right now and its all flat lands so Colorado was alot diff. with all the Mt views was wonderful to have a change.

Hope that helps a little

If you wait until the weather is warmer, you could go to Newport, Rhode Island. Plenty of history with the mansions, etc and some gorgeous beaches, along with LOTS of places to get mixed drinks.

Where have you been???? Key West is certainly not for Old foggies. IT is a major party place, with plenty to do museumwise. It is like going to a different country, and the water is so clear in case you want to snorkle. The hemminway house is there with it's 60 residnt polydactyl cats. I loved the butterfly museum as well. neat butterflies all over. You can take a day trip to the dry tortugas 60 miles from cuba, to check out fort Jefferson, the oldest american fort, I think. Key west has chickens and cats walking in the streets and so much to offer. You should do some research.
