Of course, for those of us who live in America, there is so much to see. The Shenadohah Valley is absolutely gorgeous, old Southern cities such as Charlotte, N.C., and Savannah, Georgia, St. Augustine, Florida, are charming and historical (much beautiful architecture). The West has a unique appeal, as does the East with Newport News and the historical areas, too. But, in the U.S. there is no place like New Orleans, LA. The vieux carre (French Quarter) is a place where one can feel as though he/she has gone to Europe without leaving the country. There are tours outside the city, too, of swamps, antebellum homes, museums, etc. And the food is superior to all other locations, without question, because of its quality and variety. Katrina did not really affect this area (other than salt-washing the streets) and tourism is now better than ever there--no thanks to BP!
