Congratulations!

A friend and I are going to spend 5 weeks in the States this summer. I spend 3 weeks in Orlando and Miami last February (and a week in the Caribbean's), so I'm excited to get back. We are going to Washington, New York, Detroit, Chicago, Salt Lake City (it's on the way from Yellowstone to Grand Canyon), Las Vegas, LA and SF.

We are going by car (though we are flying from Chicago to Yellowstone), so If you guys have any suggestions on things we should see or do or places to eat, hit me up! It'll be greatly appreciated. Our trip is horribly planned in regards to the Pre-Season, meaning we won't get to watch an NFL game (I'm planning on going to one of the London games instead). We plan to catch a New York Mets game or a San Francisco Giants game, although we know nothing about baseball. It just seems like one of those things you have to do as a tourist Laughing

Can hit on a few of them, since I've been to D.C., NY, Chicago, Vegas and LA. Though admittedly, have only spent a couple days in each of D.C., NY and LA.

As much as I hate to say it, I'd stick to the standard tourist attractions in D.C. We were only there for a few days, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of the major sights in D.C. The Smithsonian museums are obviously popular for a reason. I found the Capitol and Library of Congress to be very interesting, would definitely recommend the Capitol tour. Probably my favorite (tough word to use here, but oh well) thing we did was a tour of Arlington National Cemetery. Was just an incredibly powerful experience.

We didn't get the amount of time in NYC that we would have liked and will definitely get back at some point, so my list is definitely incomplete. With that said, even though some disagree, I really enjoyed the Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty experience. Natural History Museum was great. I'd see a show. We went to Broadway, would probably go off-Broadway to save money next time. Minor tip, you can put your name in to a raffle at the box office for Book of Mormon. They draw a select number of names and I think those drawn only have to pay $25-30 a ticket compared to a huge amount at normal price. Odds aren't great, but it's super close to Times Square so it's worth a shot.

Honestly, don't have a ton for Chicago. It's the one I'm closest too, but it's just never been my cup of tea. I'm sure Dee should have some tips here.

Detroit's a bold choice. Laughing

I love Vegas, if you have any specific questions about LV, just let me know. Been there three times in the last few years, and me and the wife aren't even real heavy drinkers.

I'd recommend doing the High Roller your first night there. Very similar to the London Eye (though I think it's slightly larger), gigantic ferris wheel that overlooks the strip, it's a pretty beautiful sight at night. Can usually score a Groupon for a discounted ride that comes with an open bar, worth it if you're a drinker. Has a bartender and they'll feed you drinks pretty quick in the 30 minutes you're in the cabin.

Would see a show for sure. Wife and I went to Zombie Burlesque as a kind of less serious purchase and ended up really liking it (tickets for this are also on Groupon I believe). Have also seen a couple of the Cirque shows, also very fun and incredible to watch, but prices were a bit more painful.

Making a trip down to Fremont St. at night is worth it. Bus will take you there and back. It's older Vegas and a bit, umm..., weird? But cool and there's usually a few bands playing as walk down it. Pro tip for Fremont: They don't let you have open containers (cans or bottles), but there's a Walgreens and a bunch of small shops that you can get a cheap can or big bottle of beer and most of the casinos have plastic cups that you can pour them into right by the doors.

We didn't get to do a ton of L.A. Hit up Universal Studios (which I thoroughly enjoyed, but may not be everyone's favorite thing) and did a couple comedy shows. If live comedy is your thing, you can find a show with some bigger names almost any night of the week. Went to the Improv on a Wednesday or Thursday for $30-$35 and saw a dozen comics over like four hours.

Don't really have many food tips. We almost always just end up eating wherever we find a restaurant with reasonable prices and great reviews on TripAdvisor.

Let me know if you want any specifics beyond what's here.

Sidenote: This post ended up being way longer than I intended. Laughing

Anyways, wife and I are going to Europe next week. Starting in Brussels, taking a bus to Amsterdam for a few days, then on to Berlin, Dresden and Prague before heading back to Brussels. Looking forward to it. Only other time in Europe was a day in London and a week in Rome.

Not a ton planned for this summer outside of it. I will have officially burned all of my vacation for the year (vacation works on fiscal years, October to October) between this trip, Vegas, Cancun, LA, Minneapolis, Nashville and a cruise. Next trip will probably be down to Cleveland and Canton for Titans/Browns and Nashville for a yet to be determined Titans game. And then Bangkok/Thailand with what is turning out to be a decent-sized group of friends this winter.

Giants games are fun, the crowd is not a normal baseball crowd (normal = beer + brats, SF crowd more wine + sushi). In SF the Mission has lots of good restaurants. If you do wineries I'd go to Sonoma before Napa. Good restaurants I'd recommend: Devil's Teeth Bakery near Ocean Beach (breakfast, get the breakfast sandwich), Salumeria in the Mission (lunch), and Foreign Cinema in the Mission is a different dinner spot.

I'm assuming you'll go from Vegas to LA to SF? Unfortunately Big Sur is a bit inaccessible right now with the mudslides. I would take the 101 from LA to SF, more scenic than I-5. It's a long drive, especially traffic getting out of LA. San Luis Obispo is a good spot to stop for a night or meal.

Lake Tahoe on the CA/NV border is awesome, but would likely mean skipping LA.


Thanks man! This is exactly what we were looking for! I really appreciate it!

We've actually been talking about San Luis Obispo briefly (we thought it would be a good place to stay the night after visiting Solvang). That could very well be our stop between LA and SF.

We've spend quiet some time thinking about how to get to SF from LA with Big Sur shut down. We'll definitely take a close look at 101 and see if we can get on Highway 1 in Monterrey.

Once again, thank you! I really appreciate it! Smile


Well hopefully Solvang lives up to your Danish standards Laughing. You should be able to get over to Highway 1, may be worth backtracking a bit and going through Carmel which is just south of Monterrey, very pretty. Santa Cruz another good stop once you hit Highway 1.

Also in SF, be sure your hotel/AirBnB isn't in the Tenderloin neighborhood. Not an ideal place for out of towners.


According to Google Maps, our hotel is in the Cow Hollow area. I guess we should stay away from the Tenderloin neighborhood while we are there?

He actually hope Solvang is messed up Laughing A few years ago danish television made a program on a danish villages in Iowa (Elk Horn). It was messed up. They had embraced all danish dishes and served them combined into one dish. It was so amazing and so wrong at the same time Laughing Laughing

Both my friend and I enjoyed (as you put it, tough word to use) when we visited a Nazi Camp in Berlin a few years back. If we can fit it in our schedule, we will definitely visit Arlington National Cemetery!

I think NYC is going to be pure tourism for us. Shopping and sightseeing. None of us are really into musicals or theaters. But maybe Broadway is one of those things we just have to do, simply to say that we've seen a Broadway play.

We haven't booked anything longterm in Chicago. We might come in one day before our flight, just to relax a day. Yeah, Detroit is bold. We just wanted to see how bad it really is there. We've been told how bad it is, but I still think we'll be surprised (honestly, we are only going there because it's on the way from Toronto to Chicago).

I've never heard of the High Roller. Thanks man! I've wanted to see a Cirque show for years, so that's probably a thing I'll try to go to. Same goes for a, quality, magic show (I like when people mess with my head Laughing). I've never heard of Freemont St., but we'll do some research. Part of our trip plan is to see as many weird things as possible. So if Freemont St. is weird, we'll probably go there!

I was in Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando last year, probably won't go again. We both enjoy comedy so that's another thing we'll look into.

Love Vegas... there was a time where we were hitting it up 3 times per year (never in the summer though, so good luck if you're trying to do things outdoor during the day).

I have to admit that I also enjoyed staying at Freemont as much, if not more than on the Strip. It's definitely different, but good different. The Nugget built a new tower about 10 years ago, and the rooms are as nice as the rooms on the Strip (non-suite of course).

There's a casino at the far end of the strip, forget what it's called... but they had an awesome Rat Pack show. It was dinner, drinks, and the rat pack... I mean... what else do you need, right? (Well, other than them being the real rat pack, but they were really good impersonators).

Hard Rock has a thing called Rehab. It's a day pool party, and it was the best. I was there before it became crazy popular and it was awesome. It got pretty crazy (so packed) last time I was there, although I haven't been in a few years... it's no longer my cup of tea, but you may enjoy it as a 1-time experience.

If you're into coasters, the NY NY and the Strat have the must do coasters. I mean, really... those big casinos on the Strip, you can spend a whole day on each of them... I love Caesar's... the MGM is huge... I always have a good time at the medieval show at Excalibur.

If you guys can spare the extra change, the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon is pretty awesome.

My first few years going there was typically filled with nothing but gambling and drunken debauchery... but there's really so much to do there even if that's not your thing.

I'm not a fan of LA, although I haven't been there in over a decade. I'm sure I'd be able to find things that I could enjoy now... but I just was never a fan. I've never been to Chicago, but you have to try to catch a Cubs game if you go. Wrigley is an American institution. NY I've spent too little time in, but Central Park is very nice. If you're into the shopping thing, you definitely have to hit SoHo. There's other great neighborhoods like Greenwich Village, etc, but there's something different about SoHo that I love. Time Square is also always packed... but also worth going to, even if just to say you've been there.

In DC, you have to hit the Mall. I mean, you have to. Monuments, museums, the Capitol, White House, Ford's Theater, the Supreme Court, etc. They're all within walking range, and definitely worth the crowds.

If you have time in between, hit Philly up too. It's one of my favorite cities. I love the historic district, old Italy (the Rocky route), the art museum, Eastern State Pen, Fort Mifflin... so much to do/see there.

If I can make a recommendation for next time, you definitely have to spend time in Seattle. Maybe make your way up to Vancouver for a day... and Redwood Forest for another. To me, the US doesn't get any more beautiful than the Pacific Northwest (continental at least, since I've never been to Alaska nor Hawaii).

Man... there's some summer huge plans for some of you. That's freaking awesome.

I've always been more of a stay-at-home-during-the-summer-and-travel-when-its-less-busy kind of guy. My summer plans include a couple of camping get aways (I live in the desert, so escaping to the mountains and forests a couple hours away is a must every summer). I may take a weekend trip elsewhere, but nothing huge.

I'll defintely be going to AZ early December for the Titans game. But my "big" plans include a trip south to the Yucatan early next year. We'll be hitting Cancun, Playa del Mar, Cozumel, Belize, a bunch of Mayan sites, for sure Chichen Itza, Tulum, and I'm hoping we can get down into Guatemala for Tikal. I would also love to do Palenque, but that's a bits away the other way. We're also using the trip to talk to a couple of wedding planners down there, and hopefully start the works for a wedding down there in 2019.... maybe we can even find a Mayan shaman to do the service. Shocked Very Happy

Taking some summer classes and beginning the new jump into majoring in accounting. Also going to Bonnaroo next weekend so that should be a great time. Other than that, just work and school all day everyday

Just so that it won't be another long post, I'm just quoting this part. I really appreciate the feedback guys! Thank you!

It's actually funny you mention Philly and Eastern State Pen. We are stopping in Philly on the way from DC to NYC, just to visit Eastern State Pen Very Happy When we made our original schedule, this was one of the first things on the list. I didn't know about Fort Mifflin, but I'm definitely going to check that out. It looks promising based on a quick search.

It looks like we should just stay on Freemont Street in Vegas?

This is a great thread and I feel like I'm learning more about you guys even though we've been posting together for 10+ years

blooooody - I'm from Chicago and have been living in NYC the past couple years. Skip Detroit. At Chicago, enjoy the lake during the summer and eat at Portillo's and Gino's East. If you're in NYC, literally eat anywhere downtown and go to the Whitney museum. There are a couple beer gardens in the city, as well, that are great to hit up.

I have a lot more reco's, but am at work Sad

That area is fine, no major issues, though I would probably steer clear of the Da Vinci Villa hotel (some bad news there this morning). But Tenderloin is fine to walk through and kind of interesting, but wouldn't want to get caught out there at night if you don't know your way around much.

Also, a few bars: El Rio and Virgil's Sea Room in the Mission are great; Mauna Loa The Final Final in the Marina (near your hotel); and Mikeller Bar in the Tenderloin (good for happy hour before it gets too sketchy out) if you want a taste of Danish beers in SF.

It's your call... there's definitely more to do on the Strip though... and the rooms are generally nicer. The Nugget DT is nice enough, but it doesn't compare to the most of the ones on the strip... Food choices, entertainment options, shopping... it's all better at the strip... but Freemont has its own appeal, especially if you're a fan of old Vegas.

Personally, and I really like Fremont, if it's my first trip to Vegas, I'd definitely stay on the Strip. It's an easy bus ride either way, but when you typically think of Vegas, you're thinking of the Strip. It's just more of the Vegas experience.

As rage said, there's just more to do on the Strip. There's a chance that you end up hitting Fremont on a quieter couple nights or that it ends up not being your scene and then you end up taking the bus a bunch. At the very least, you'll always be able to find something to do on the Strip, especially during the day.

Also, for Vegas more than almost any other city, I'd suggest looking at Priceline express deals. If you haven't used it before, or want any tips, let me know. Last time we went out there we ended up staying at the Vdara for a little under $80 a night I believe. We travel a decent amount and it was easily one of the nicest places we've ever stayed.

Thank you guys, VY, Dee, Rage and Titans0021! I really appreciate the tips and advices!

We're probably not going to stay on The Strip (we're both students and this is an expensive trip, so money might be tight). We're looking at hotels a couple of blocks off of The Strip or an AirBnB solution somewhere close to The Strip.

It was. It was seven years ago, but it's still a very strong memory. It's definitely worth the visit!

I might get back to you on that Priceline Express thing Wink

I'll be finishing up my third deployment later in the summer. Other than that I don't have much planned. I bought some parts for my car I will be installing on my time off before going back to work. I haven't been on a real vacation since I was a kid living in England and I was going to try and make it to a Titans home game for the first time but my job had other plans haha.

I've had a bit of a rough start to 2017 and haven't kept up on the forums since the draft but I finally got good news the other day. I got a job at the University of Michigan! Good starting pay for a first job out of college, benefits are great and I've been a UofM fan my whole life. Super excited to get started!
