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)
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?
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). 🙂
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.
