The thing is, Suzanne might be able to go with after all (which is a good thing). So, I'm wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions on somewhere we can vacation. Here are the parameters:
- It must include a fairly lengthy road trip from our home in St. Louis, but probably not more than 20 hours. If it's totally worth it, I'd consider something farther away.
- It should have a cool final destination or something fun or interesting or original to do there. It doesn't have to be a standard vacation destination. If you have an idiosyncratic affinity for some spot, let me know about it.
- It should take me to--or at least through--some state I have never been to before. The states I have never been to that I think might be within 20 hours of driving are: North Dakota, Montana, Wisconson, Michigan, Ohio, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and any of the other states in the upper northeast, although I think most of them are too far away. I think I've driven through part of some of those states, but it wasn't memorable if I did.
