Change perspectives with a trip to Alaska's interior or a perimeter cruise. Nature photography excursions add dimension to every visit. Our cruise and extended excursion were just the right mix of adventure and relaxation. That trip landed Alaska at the top of our recommendation list for places to visit.
2. New York City
The city that never sleeps keeps us hopping about as we visit museums, restaurants, city parks, and boutique shops. Manhattan is the place to be for city life.
3. Washington DC
Politics aside, we love the monuments and history-steeped atmosphere of our nation's capital city. We always check for a Photo Safari on the dates we visit and have gained insight into photography and some hidden places for unique photo views while on photo tours.
4. New Orleans
True southern charm with a dash or two of spicy cultures. From Mardi Gras season to the sultry summer heat, New Orleans holds a piece of our hearts.
5. St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
Sunshine and beaches. Now we're talking! It's refined fun on the beaches of St. Thomas and the local restaurants serve up rich flavors to please the foodie palate.
6. San Antonio, Texas
When it's time to waltz across Texas, the Hill Country is an ideal beginning. Mariachi bands or two-stepping to the tunes of a steel guitar, San Antonio delivers.
7. Rocky Mountain National Park
The siren call of nature lures us to Colorado to see the wildlife, visit Grand Lake, and embrace the solitude. The comfort of a hearth during the winter is a treasure.
8. Saint John, New Brunswick
The Bay of Fundy, known for the Reversing Rapids, was the first delight as we explored this stunningly beautiful region of Canada.
9. San Diego, California
John was a resident in San Diego for a few years during military service, and as a tour guide, he's quite adept at remembering the local attractions.
10. San Francisco, California
The streetcar carried us to museums and restaurants in the city, but it was on tired, achy legs that we climbed to Coit Tower. Ignore the pain, the view was more than worth every step.
