    cheers,
    Since I can't recommend places I haven't seen yet, and I haven't traveled much, my list is limited.

    The coast of Maine
    The coast of Oregon
    Vermont in fall
    The Chiricahua Mountains in Arizona
    The Smoky Mountains
    West Virginia
    Take a steamboat ride the length of the Mississippi River
    Michael W. Graves
    Michael's Pub

    If it ain't broke....don't fix it!

    My wife bought it. It's really quite cool and lists some interesting places to visit. The one's I've been to for the most part are worthwhile places to visit. I'd recommend the book for sure.

    The place where you spent your childhood, looking at it through your adult eyes.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I've been to a decent number of places on their list, and when it comes to places/events, I am in large part in agreement. Sometimes things they leave off baffle me a little, but I can't think of a specific example off the top of my head. My biggest bone to pick is that the only lodging they ever mention is all five-star accommodations. I get that they're aiming for places you should try to see/stay at for an unforgettable experience, but it would be nice if they could also include (perhaps a separate appendix or something?) places to stay that don't cost $400 a night and up. I'd even settle for a bullet-point list at the end of each section.
