Holiday to USA

Hi All

My husband and I are looking to do a trip to The US next year.

We are thinking around June/ July.

Any recommendations on best time of year and locations??

So far I am looking at
LA, Vegas, Portland, Seattle, San Fran & New York.

And then Minnesota!

Ok, you've never heard of it...but largest shopping mall in the country and 12,000 lakes. One of them being the largest in the world (assuming you don't count seas).

Well, it is kind of like us planning a trip to Australia - we are going this August and have only two weeks. We will be concentrating on Sydney and the GBR area and maybe one more stop. How much time will you have? It makes a huge difference if you have a limited time or an extensive amount of time. I will also pm you for suggestions on Sydney!

San Francisco is an absolutely AMAZING trip. There is so much to do and see that you won't have a moment of boredom. Plus you can book tours and go on the outskirts of the city to see other attractions (we booked 2 private tours and went through Napa and Sonoma Valleys for a day and the Muir Woods, Route 1 and the city...they were a little expensive but WELL worth the $ in order to have a knowledgable tour guide taking us everywhere!). The only downside to the entire trip is that I missed Bear terribly for the first 4 days and I was miserable.....until I realized how amazing the city is and I ended up taking it all in
Best trip ever!

Janet and Archie - do the bridge climb in Sydney! It's an unforgettable experience of a lifetime in a gorgeous city.

Hehe I have heard of Minnesota actually so ill add that to my list of places to see.
A lot of our tv shows are American so you tend to know of American places as as we do places in Australia.

We are looking at 4 - 5 depending on a dog sitter and annual leave.

Yay that your coming to see our beautiful country and my lovely city. Two weeks is brief but is doable if your restricting your locations. Happy to provide some tips for some things to do and good places to stay in Sydney if you haven't already organised accommodation. It'll still be chilly in August however up north (GBr) will be comfortable weather I'm sure.

At least your dollar is stronger than ours ATM which should help!!

I would recommend the bridge climb too. I have done it and its as you said, a great experience. If you don't do that at least go up on centre point tower as you will be amazed at the beautiful harbour and how much blue water surrounds the city.
