Default Don't leave home without seeing ..............

We go on a holiday in a couple of days. The destination is the USA.
3 weeks of fun, meeting nice people and see wonderful things.
Please show us the must see things that you think we don't dare to miss.

We start in the DC area, and somehow end up in Alabama, before travelling west into New Mexico , Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California and finally fly home again from LA.


Don't leave home without seeing ..............

I'd normally recommend taking the southern route into California-- I 40 would bring you past the Grand Canyon and through the Mojave Desert.

Going up to Cheyenne... if you have the time, a diversion up to Yellowstone would be a good idea. Otherwise, perhaps swing through Yosemite Valley on your way from San Francisco to LA. I'm all about our National parks.

If you decide to stick to the coastal California route, then head out to Pismo Bay for some clam chowder.

While you're in the Bay Area, if you are able to find it (they're based in Petaluma, Sonoma County), get some bread from Della Fattoria. I did my internship there years ago and even in the bread heaven that is the Bay Area, it's top notch.
Della Fattoria Homepage

They distribute to some markets in San Francisco (or they did when I was there), primarily Whole Foods.

If you guys like roller coasters you should stop at Cedar Point while you're in Ohio.

Definitely don't miss the California coastline! Take US Hwy 101/Pacific Coast Hwy down from the Bay area, and don't miss the famous 17 mile drive. Some of the most spectacular scenery on earth will be yours for the taking. (Picture taking, hopefully. We'll be expecting lots of pics of your trip. )

The route along the I-40 i did that 3 years ago. I've been to the USA several times, but never in the Eastern States.

Grand Canyon, Bryce, Monument valley, Zion, to name a few, the whole southwest we've been there. The route into Colorado is a reprise from my first holiday in 92. I like to show my wife the Rockies and the trees in Fall.


@ Gmash, yeah, i like rollercoasters a lot. I'm what you call a adrenaline junkie.

Thanks for the tip!

It is too bad you will be missing the NE states. Let me whisper this in case Huh may be reading this thread.

On Saturday Sept 13. their will be 'Connecticut on tap' in Danbury. People will have a chance to sample over 120 different craft brewers beer. This is the first time I have heard of it, so I don't know if it is a regular event.

Anyhow, just let me say enjoy your trip to the west coast.

Thanks! Good to know about the beer stuff. I like that.
In a couple of years we come back for a holiday in the NE states incl a short stay in New York.

Visit NY city in this holiday is impossible, we simply don't have the time.

And if we live lang enough, we want to go on a roadtrip trough the northern states, from Michigan to Washington state.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


@ Gmash, You mean the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland? Yes we will, because the heads on the Pink Floyd album Divsion Bell are there on display. We simply want to see the original thing because someone did take a second shot with slightly different heads on the same location in England.

I'm not sure of the timing, but if the race is happening when you pass through, Talladega offers a unique slice of Americana that cannot be described. It needs to be experienced. It's a reacetrack built on a WWII Airfield built on a Native American burial ground, hosts 250,000 fans all liquored up, watching stock cars racing inches apart in a pack of 43 cars reaching speeds of 230 MPH. Oh, did I mention that it is supposedly haunted.

If you pass through Dayton on your way though Ohio, you might like the National Museum of the United States Air Force. They have some cool stuff in there. I think Marco is a pilot if I remember correctly. (Dayton is right off of I-75)

That's part of their ad campaign. I don't know what it means either. It's a decent beer though.

We ain't scared of no devil
Maybe the best known crossroad ever. Robert Johnson and Eric Clapton sing about it. There's even a movie. Highways 1 'n 8 close to the Mississippi River, South of Memphis, ma'am.1411415982417.jpg

Will post most Graceland pics tonight.

This looks like an amazing trip! I would agree with the Zion (Great hiking!-see Angel's Landing) suggestion as well as throwing in there Lake Tahoe (REALLY beautiful-see Emerald Bay), Roswell NM (only if not out of the way, just kind of fun and kitchy. Where the aliens landed)
Check out some of the hot springs in Colorado on your route, there's tons of them out there.
If you're not going to stop in Vegas, maybe you could make it to Reno for a little fun. Looks like it's closer to your planned route. Stop by the Mustang Ranch for a culture rich experience
Don't skip Hwy 1 in CA.
HAVE FUN and keep those pics coming!

Mustang Ranch?
I've been at the Cadillac Ranch near Amarillo in '11, and planning to visit the nearby Beetle Ranch this time. But that is a lot different

Okay... We had to check in for our hot air balloon ride in Albuquerque NM at 6.30 this morning. Dang early but it was worth it!

A Colorful Colorado day today. The Great Sand Dunes in today's first rays of sunshine, an arty hippy town called Nederland (that's how us Dutch Ies call the Netherlands) and gorgeous Indian Summer in the Rocky Mountains.
(It's 101F on Denver's highways now btw)

We passed Steamboat Springs and the Great Divide today. Means: east of yhis divide all the water flows into the Atlantic, west of it into the Pacific. We used our Gopro cam for the first time today.
We have finished today's drive in Dinosaur CO, just a few miles from Utah. The motel owner is cool. He was willing to trade a bag of Dutch licorice for a few glasses of moonshine

Good morning from Delta UT in first morning light! Going west over highway 50; the loneliest road in America. 640 km 'immer gerade aus' into the Great Basin, Nevada. Playing Pink Floyd's Wish you were here out loud.
