Topic: Ultimate Road Trip

In honor of Miba's recent post about wanting to see the world, let's throw out some of the "best of" stops not only across the United States, but in the entire world.

Try to number them so it's easier to read, too, as these accumulate. The more specific, the better.

1. Skywalker Ranch, 5858 Lucas Valley Road, Nicasio, CA
2. Industrial Light and Magic, 1 Letterman Dr, San Francisco, CA
3. BFFC Headquarters, Los Angeles, CA
4. Luxembourg Gardens, Paris, France

5. Grand Canyon, AZ. Cause I think everyone should check it out, it's incredible!
6. Desert Museum, Tucson, AZ. Why? Cause it's the only thing in this city worth checking out. And you get to see all the crazy animals we the locals have to put up with on a daily basis!

Re: Ultimate Road Trip

8. Since I live closest I guess I should be the one to say Glacier Park, MT. But I've never been there.
9. Rapid City, South Dakota, and it's various entertainments such as Wall Drug, Mt. Rushmore, horseback trails, cave tours, and this neat maze that's there too.
10. And while we're there we might as well head over to the badlands.
11. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
12. Air and Space Museum, Alabama
13. Air Force Museum, Ohio, in Dayton I believe
14. For free museums and places Washington DC has a bunch, like a naval museum, and of course the usual Lincoln Memorial and stuff.
15. Aches NTL. Park, Utah
16. Around where Green Bay, Wisconsin is there's a little amusement park and playground with the green foamy ground and it's very, very cheap. And you pay by the ride.
17. Great Salt Lake State Park, Utah

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

I've been there. My family and I took a vacation there many, many years back when I was 8 or so. Really beautiful place.

I used to LIVE there! Really! Been to Mt. Rushmore many times, and Crazy Horse, and Hot Springs, and nearly all of the various sites in and around the Black Hills.

I saw Crazy Horse when they were still building him. He's probably done by now. We didn't do the hot springs but that would have been nice. You were lucky living there, it's a beautiful place.

Re: Ultimate Road Trip

Hot Springs is a pretty cool town, if it's the same one I'm thinking of. Theres an ongoing excavation there of mammoth fossils on the site of an ancient tar pit that I took several field trips to in Elementary school. And if thats not your thing, there's Evan's Plunge, an indoor minature water park that draws from the natural hot springs (or at least it used to) that's open year round.

And Crazy Horse still isn't completed, and I don't think it will be any time soon. They finished carving the face back in 98, and some of the outlines have appeared. But I don't think it'll be completed for many, many years to come.

24: Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida. I went there once as a kid and man was it AWESOME. I was basically the smallest kid going on the biggest roller coasters unafraid, hahaha.

I would definitely like to visit Tunisia since most of the buildings from the movies are actually there
