    Board is kinda slow, so I figured I'd start to try and get some conversation started up in hurrr.


    Name your top 5 places in the country. They don't necessarily have to be vacation spots or spots that you'd like to live.....just your favorite places. Don't over think it.

    In no particular order:

    1. Denver/Morrison, CO (Red Rocks amphitheater)
    2. Austin, TX
    3. Minneapolis, MN (in the late spring)
    4. Ocean Springs, MS
    5. New Orleans, LA (which, inexplicably is also in my least favorite....it would take me a while to explain that)

    *honorable mention to Pensacola, FL , Destin, FL (probably the prettiest beaches in the country)....also, I've never been to the Pacific NW, but I want to really badly...I know once I go there that it will probably be one of my favorites. Also, I'll be in NYC this summer for the first time and I look forward to it.


    So, let's hear yours:

    I didn't realize the Bahamas and Cozumel were part of the U.S.

    I'll have to wikipedia that one.
