Daily Prompt: Seven Days

You wake up tomorrow morning to find all your plans have been cancelled for the next seven days and $10,000 on your dresser. Tell us about your week.

Only one thing comes to mind – 7 Days, 7 Cities.

For years I’ve had a list of the top ten places in the US I want to visit. This list includes cities that I’ve never been to but have always wanted to visit, and if I had a week off and $10k in the bank I’d make each day count like a mo’fo. So here’s my list in order starting with Saturday and ending with Saturday.

1. Seattle, Washington (with a brief trip to Victoria and Vancouver)


2. San Fransisco, California


3. Denver, Colorado

4. Coby, Wyoming ( closest town to Shoshone National Forest)


5. Bellvue, Idaho (closest town to Craters of the Moon)


6. Chicago

7.Alamogordo, New Mexico (outside Lincoln National Forest)


In case you can’t tell, I REALLY like the outdoors. I could easily spend 7 days in EACH of these places and not get my fill, but hey. So, what would be your dream week with $10k to burn?

  1. Jeremiah – some great choices there, but I suspect you would waste a lot of seven days mostly in transit, unless your benefactor also threw in a teleport machine with the $10K. I don’t know about you, but I hate the time taken for all of the airport check-in, security, waiting, collecting baggage, queuing for a cab etc. I’d probably start with just one for seven days, say Seattle or Chicago as a base, and look at a couple of day trips. After my seven days I’d thank my benefactor and ask if he would give me another $10K next year!

    • Alistair, you probably have a point. But, since I’m not going to wake up tomorrow with seven days off and $10k in the bank we’ll just assume that the teleport machine is thrown in there as well. 😉
      Either that or I just wouldn’t sleep for a week and only fly during the night hours via private plane (no check-in/security). 🙂

  2. I should say that you have made some great choices. All 7 different locations that are mentioned here are really cool, and are worth visiting. These cities have some great architecture structures that one wouldn’t like to miss.
