Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village right next door. Detroit of course. Pinconning in MI.
Of course all the National Parks and civil war battlefields. Heck a person could spend a year on Oregon along exploring this great states vistas.

As many of the major landmarks that make America special as you can possibly visit: Golden Gate Bridge, Grand Canyon, Florida Keys, Kennedy space Center, Washington D.C., New York City, Niagra Falls, Alaska, Disneyland/Disney World, all of the National Parks.

And these are just the ones that come immediately to my mind. There are probably many others just based on your own personal interests.

Custer State Park in South Dakota. You can visit Mt. Rushmore right up the road from the Park.

What we did during our full-timing of 16 years was each season we picked one or two states to fully explore. There are a lot of hidden gems out there that aren't listed first in the travel books. We would drive all the secondary roads and towed a Jeep for exploring the backcountry.

You might want to take up the hobby of geocaching. It will lead you to awesome places that you'd never know existed.

Definitely take your time and don't rush your travels. Learn to do some boondocking on public lands - national forests, BLM and you'll see some real beauty rather than in RV parks. You're not on vacation anymore. This is a whole new lifestyle! Enjoy!!

We have several outdoor hobbies. Fishing hiking metal detecting canoe ing and kayaking,biking and camping. We do plan to take our time and plan to be on vacation for 2 years. Then we will see. I have worked hard for the last 44 years and my wife for 32years. It is time to be on vacation. Though I do understand what you are saying.

This is really hard to answer without knowing your interests, having said that I think there is probably something worth ones time to see or do within 50 or 75 miles of just about anywhere in the US (ok maybe not eastern Colorado or much of North Dakota), but much of the rest of the country. This may be an often photographed scenic vista, or may be some obscure museum with a care taker that acts like he is suffering from cabin fever and has not seen another human in weeks, or something in between.

As I stated in my OP I dont want to miss a thing. So we are interested in everything. Like you stated there are places that are over looked by the crowd. I want to know what they are and where they.
