    Grand Canyon

    Arizona, USA
    294 reviews

    i have been here 3 times over a period of 25 years and every time i stand at the edge, i feel the same awe and wonder. The circus around the south rim visitor circus is a bit too "touristy" for me, but anywhere else and especially the more isolated north rim is wonderful.

    Santa Cruz

    California, USA
    129 reviews

    Relax at the beach, enjoy the out of the box patrons, and hike around in the forest...all in one day. This is a great place to live or visit. Not big in the commercial scene but definitely in love with the surrounding nature. If you get the chance go and see the butterflies when they are migrating.

    Red rocks, great restaurants, and beautiful hotels. This bastion of liberalism is a highlight of Arizona. A good place to hike, eat, and just sit by the pool.

    Big Sur

    California, USA
    108 reviews

    Big Sur is a destination not to be missed on the central coast of California. Dramatic cliffs, crashing waves, and scenic shoreline all lead to this little piece of heaven. There are so many places to explore, both shore-side and mountain-side, you can visit over and over and still not see it all. Definitely a nature-lover's paradise.

    Stinson Beach

    California, USA

    You might hit traffic on Highway 1 to get there and especially so on the weekends, but if you go bright and early you shouldn't run into any problems. Parking is going to be an absolute nightmare, so you've been warned. =)

    Take a stroll down Main Street for a dose of small town California. Shop for gifts, yarn, clothes, books, music, cowboy togs, travel gear or music. HMB also has some terrific restaurants. You can rent a bike and head for the coastal trail, or take a hike on nearby Montara Mountain. At low tide there's miles of state beach to ...

    Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

    Hawaii, USA

    Incredible and best seen from the air by helicopter. You won't see anything by bus and a helicopter virtually guarantees that you will see lava flows from Kilauea. Stunning.

    Take a walk along Canney Row, go for a delicious meal at Louie Linguini's, dip your toes in the sea and go and visit the sealions by the marina. There are lots of things to see here and a good trip to pair with Carmel which is just up the road.
