I am trying to decide where I want to go on my birthday trip this year. It's a fairly new tradition for me, but the idea is that each year on or near my birthday I travel somewhere I've never been.
I haven't always stuck to the "never been" part of that. I went to New Orleans twice. Last year we went to Chimney Rock, Grandfather Mountain and did a quick tour of the Linville Caverns and waterfall, all in North Carolina. I love the mountains.
This year I was looking at Lake Lure, but technically it's the same trip as last year. So, I'm spending time with my good pal, Expedia.com, searching for new places.
My top two wishes right now are: 1. Going back to San Francisco or 2. Going back to Washington D.C. Note the "going back" which violates the "someplace new" part of my tradition. But I'm not sure DC counts as we were only there for about 20 hours.
And, my time off is in late June and I'm not sure about stomping around DC in the heat of the summer.
I don't know. Any ideas?
