Hi, didn't know which forum to put this in really, we wd like to visit America next year, its a bit of amilestone year for us and wd like to mark it suitabley. Rather than do the Disney theme park thing (tho cd fit in a day if pressed by my youngest!) are looking at New England or visiting the Grand Canyon, or Niagra Falls, or whale watching, the Rockies etc and other stunning sights. The alternative is to go to a place the kids have heardd of..Miami, the Keys etc (not New York...too shopping orientated?..unless for a day or so )
We are 2 adults and 3 kids.age 17,15 and 10, all of whom like the natural world, stunning scenery, both active and relacing holidays (ie@not hiking/canoeing every day, but some days!) Can anyone suggest places..and I don't want to camp altho can stand a few nights of it! We tend to go (quality!)self catering, mainly cos of cost with 3 kids. I know it's a HUGE thing to ask but I don't know where to start either!
