New York City and Washington D.C. for lots of shopping and sight-seeing. The west coast for some good surfing. The south-east states for historical tours. Texas has some old ranches, battlefields, and such. Maine has good lobster. The Dakotas have some beautiful scenery and camping. West Virginia has great white water rafting. Colorado has great mountain climbing. Louisiana and Mississippi are good fishing destinations.
Boy, that's a pretty open question. I'll suggest on places I would go if I'd never been. First Washington DC. to see the monuments and the Smithsonian Museums. Then, what's left of Bourbon street and the history in Louisiana. Slide right on over to Florida. I'd skip Miami, and go to the Keys for a couple days Enjoy the sun and the locals. :) Up to South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore, and then to New York. A couple days there at least. Over to Oklahoma and Kansas, just to say you had been. Stop in Colorado to ski. I'd skip Aspen and Vail and go to Telluride and Boulder. Maybe Denver if you're a city person. Drop in for a little peak at the Grand Canyon, (you may need to get warm after Colorado,) and the up to the Pacific Northwest to see Mt. St. Helens and all the greenery around Portland and Seattle. Don't forget to go up to the top of the Space Needle for dinner. iI Oregon, Crater Lake is beautiful. Come down the coast and see San Fransisco. The Golden Gate and go down Lombard street. Come to LA to see the Walk of Hollywood Stars. Then, down to San Diego for the Aquarium and Zoo. Fly home to a hot bath and a smile! WOW! Have fun!
Lots of awesome places. Right up there close to Canada are Yellowstone National Park (volcanic hot spot with geysers and mud pools and sulphur pools, etc), Grand Tetons National Park, Mount Rushmore National Park. The Black Hills area. The Crazy Horse National Monument. Corn Palace, corny (excuse my corniness) but interesting.
