I loved Disney World. Spent it with all of my nieces and nephews and had a good time.

Nothing in Iowa? I've been to 11, but close to a lot of them I didn't waste time seeing. Some I wish I hadn't..The Alamo? Book a trip to the Vegas Strip instead.
I enjoyed my trip to the Alamo. But going to the Menger Bar across the street was even better. Very historical, Teddy Roosevelt recruited his Roughriders there.

I agree everything around the Alamo is pretty cool, but 2 downtown San Antonio places on the list is overkill. If you've been to one you've been to the other. Throw Denali, PCH, Grand Old Opry on that list to get a better spread geographically where people have been.

33 for me, but I'm old. Only missing Lake Tahoe.

September or early Oct are best for Tahoe if you’re looking at it for outdoor life other than skiing in terms of weather/crowds/mosquitoes. Early May or late April be good same way but varies year to year.

It’s a legit amazing place having such a massive crystal clear lake at that altitude but crowds can get crazy. I’ve only been once for skiing and it was 23 years ago, it was a blast but no idea how it is now. I think instagram makes it more crowded by the year. Desolation Wilderness zone is as beautiful as most of the premier national parks.

Agree the two San Antonio locations were head scratcher.

Big Sur coast of PCH is insane. Hotels/motels are crazy expensive but planning ahead to reserve spots to car camp is more fun for about 5% of the cost. Tricky part for planning trip is sometimes part of road will close from rock slide and a few months of year there’s a lot of rain (which increases rock slide odds).

14. Not bad for someone that has only been in the US for 40% of my life.

27 - did a lot of travel as a kid and have continued that experience with my own family. Did 2 huge trips during summer vactions (one loop to the West Coast the other loop to the East Coast). Unfortunately travel is much more expense now so those type of trips are mostly a thing of the past.
