Launch into USA

I want to know the places to go - the roads to crash on, the national parks to get lost in, the cafes to tantalise one's tastebuds in, the stores one can't help but melt plastic in, the Cities one must not die before passing through, the museums to sleep in, the Architectural wonders to sick my Canon onto, the humanity to lust after and the experiences to die for in The grand ol' U S of A.

That's right I'm asking you your most memorable experiences, places and all of the above that you'd care to share (GPS positioning most welcome) as I plan a trip to the place I swore I'd avoid during the Bush Administration and now have an obligation to fulfil and return to. It will be in the early fall (autumn for non USA-ites) and I'm very excited about the potential. Don't forget I love to swim, so swimming locations will be greeted with all manner of appreciative gestures.

It's your chance to tell me where to go.

I'm counting on you!

I love Chicago, only taking a dip in Lake Michigan is not that good.

You should make a pilgrimage to the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, NYC. June 27 1969, Scene of the Stonewall Riots and the start of Gay Liberation. Check out the Public Art in the nearby Christopher Park by George Segal. Four white figures commemorate the event. A film has been made this year called Stonewall Uprising. Try to see that if you can.

Peter: Chicago does sound interesting... but the water HAS to be good!

Ian: thanks - I will make an effort to get there in fact.

Deeper Daze: I'll just say thanks!
