Done Florida....now where else can we go?

We are a family from the UK that includes teenagers and we have now been to Florida 4 times, done the ‘Disney/Universal/Sea World’ thing and loved every minute of it.

This year we want to go somewhere else in the USA that can offer the same thing; i.e. good theme parks (we love roller coasters – Six Flags is somewhere we like the look of), water parks with scary slides, plenty of good places to eat and plenty of sunshine.

Just like our visit to Florida we would like to stay in a condo and hire a car.

We are considering Anaheim in California but it seems to be dominated by the ‘Disney thing’ (see above)

Has anyone got any other ideas as to a town or area that would suit us?

Try Atlanta! Six Flags over Georgia, water parks, The World of Coca Cola, The Aquarium, Stone Mountain, The Underground and the Atlanta Braves. Great neighborhoods, all with different shops and restaurants. Something for everyone. Check out the Atlanta, Georgia forum.

I have two suggestions. (If you are visiting in the summer.)

The first one is to spend time at the Jersey Shore (sooo many beautiful spots to choose from) and go to the Six Flags Great Adventure & Wild Safari.


You should consider a few days in New York City if that interests you.

The second one is a less expensive option, but not on the ocean. If you love thrill rides, Cedar Point is exceptional. cedarpoint.com/public/…index.cfm

Also, you can spend some days of your vacation relaxing on the beach at Lake Erie. Here is an example of some vacation rentals in the area:
