Question Where to go next?

My husband and I (in our early 60's) are looking for a new place to visit for one week during the summer of 2017. Since we only have one week, Yellowstone....which is on our list.....is out of the question. There are so many places we haven't seen or visited yet in these great states! Any suggestions for the East Coast? Or should we head north? We LOVE historical sites and thoroughly enjoyed Gettysburg last summer. Thanks for any advice you may want to offer!

It would be a bit of a drive, but Ticonderoga in NY is quite historic. Spend some time in the Adirondacks. Stop in at the Finger lakes and all their great wineries, either on the way or the return.

We did historic Virginia a couple of years back and really loved it. We hit Mount Vernon, Jamestown, Williamsburg and Monticello/Charlottesville. If you have not every been to DC it is really wort the time and is convenient to Mount Vernon as well. I encourage everyone to visit the home of our first president, it is peaceful and insightful. Quite a trip.

I would encourage you to take a couple of months and Visit the Nation's Capital, more to see and do that most can do in a lifetime. Problem is it's like Yellowstone - the Variety - and the Quality of all the places is just unmatched, and they are ALL FREE.

I have never been when I was not just amazed at what I was able to see and learn - Seems like they continue to add new and better things every year - the FDR memorial is outstanding and the Native American Museum is the Place to plan Lunch - unbelievable building and great exhibits - and we had a real Lunch at the cafeteria.

Just something new every time you visit, I have never been disappointed - Frustrated - Because as Yogi would say "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded"

Not to be missed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JMHO,

Come to Boston. Historic sites galore . Public transportation into town . Minute Man and Normandy CG close to town. Old Sturbridge Village and Plymouth west and south of town. Just don't drive into Boston
