Won a 4 day 3 night trip with air and hotel anywhere in the continental US, any suggestions? I'm leaning towards places I've never been, so CA and CO are out, looking at Seattle, and such places like Maine cause I'm obsessed with lobster rolls. Wife would be coming with as well.
Any ideas and why?
pics of wife please
The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.
like this, but not
Denver, St. Louis, SLC, but go to Park City, maybe Montana. Go to a big national park, or Vegas.
The Doctor is in:
When are you planning going?
I'd actually say somewhere other than Vegas, since 1. you're going with the wife and 2. it's generally easier to find cheap deals there (put another way, no need to burn a free trip).
Is there a time restriction on when you can go?

was just there 3 weeks ago
no, and i'd like somewhere not really driving from Chicago, so things like STL are out, what about Nashville?
How many timeshares pitches do you have to listen to?

hahaha, nothing like that
We've kicked around NOLA, but I know NOTHING about that town, foodwise it seems pretty awesome though, is there more to do than just Bourbon street?
Do you get to choose the hotel? I wouldn't want to end up in a city and have them choose a dump for you to stay in.
Jackson Hole - Amangani hotel (ranked the #1 hotel in the US) - http://www.amanresorts.com/amangani/resort.aspx
Napa Valley - http://www.aubergedusoleil.com
Santa Fe - http://fivegraces.com
Fire up Travel Channel on Demand, Anthony Bordaine just did New Orleans last week on "The Layover" and did tons of shit not on Bourbon Street that looks really cool.
I get to choose the hotel yeah, at the same time, I'm not sure I can pick something thats like 5-800 a night

Mendocino (I know it's CA but you may not have been there)
DC is pretty cool
Seattle is a great choice, though. It's got everything--mountains, microbrews, a large, aggressive homeless population, etc.
DC we did last year for memorial day
thats two people that say Santa Fe, why and what time of year?
I would say Vermont in the fall, but if you love the idea of Maine go there in late September/early October.
Sante Fe is amazing all year I think.
It has skiing in the winter just north of town. I've actually stayed at the resort I posted earlier in this thread (http://fivegraces.com) and can attest to the amazingness of it. I think it's ranked the #3 hotel in the US. I stayed in the fall, which I thought was perfect. Great food, great art/outdoor activities. I found fall to be nice because the nicer hotels there have a special type of fire place (kiva) that they will set up for you, and it will definitely be a trip you will remember.
If that area of the country interests you, you can also take a look at Sun Valley, Idaho.

Seattle is a good destination, plenty to do in around the city. Maine, I would suggest Bar Harbor/ Acadia Nat Park, but that's a very different trip.
Another suggestion, been to Charleston, SC?

defenitly something to show the wife, we were thinking either April or Fall, skiing would probably be out, I'm not sure she knows how very well being from NC
NOLA is awesome. Blue Nile/Tipitina's for music, all the po boys/gumbo/jambalaya/boudin/etouffee you can eat, an incredibly rich and interesting history (check out one of the ghost tours, they're fun), and yes, the ever-present option to just go drown your liver.
