Nobody likes to be called a dummy by a dummy.

Here's the challenge...

Name cities in the US. I'll try to visit every one mentioned in 2006.

Only caveat - *you* have to have been there. (otherwise I'll get every town and city in the Dakotas)

If I get to a city, I'll write a trip report.

Yes, I'm that bored right now. :)
I will also definitely regret this.

I decided to be nice.  I've only listed a handful of places I consider exceptional places to visit, or near exceptional places.

Moab, Utah
Jacob Lake, Arizona
Page, Arizona
Bolder, Utah
Sealy Lake, Montana
West Yellowstone, Montana
New York, New York
Orlando, Florida
Los Angeles, California
Portland, Oregon
Las Vegas, Nevada
New Orleans, Lousiana
Nauvoo, Illinois
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Charlott, Virginia

That will be enough to keep you busy a few months.

I always thought Biloxi, Mississippi was kind of a cool place.  You have casinos and still the people know you when you come back.  Kind of a smalltown Vegas.

I don't know about how it is doing now... since recent events.

IMesh, if your "Damn you have been to lot of places" was directed to me, you are very right.  I worked for 15 years for a company that does automated warehousing.  I've been to the best warehouses in the world, mostly in the US, but also Taiwan and a couple in Europe.

I'm a Delta Million Miler. I've got a collection of ticket stubs that you wouldn't believe.  And yes, I was being very, very nice to Philo.

+1 San Diego, for the beautiful architecture downtown (and the boardwalk is quite agreeable).

But since you used to be in the navy, I suppose you've been there before.

I'll be nice too - only cities that are worth visiting for one reason or another.

Asheville, NC (lots of artsy stuff)
Dayton, OH  (USAF museum)
Charleston, SC  (Just a great city to visit)
Denver, CO  (nice downtown area)
The twin cities, MN  (Mall of America)
Farmington, NM  (the Shiprock, Anasazi & Aztek sites)

and an easy one for you:

Washington, DC  (Smithsonian Institution)

I was going to throw in West Des Moines, but Ryan already got one of the quad-cities, so you're probably covered as far as Iowa is concerned.

And visit Antonio's Quick Lunch.

It's the best Taqueria on earth.

And let John H and I know you're coming, we'll show you around. (There is so much to see.)

Simon -

Grass Valley, CA is in our neighborhood, and depending a little on how you got there, you probably came right through. Do you make this journey often?
