    I live in DC so I am biased. Is a great place though 🙂

    @aussiebride26:  I live in DC, so I’m biased, but the city is incredible. Obviously politically, the history, the Smithsonian museums, etc….but 90% of it is free and walkable. Great public transport, SO MUCH TO SEE. If highly recommend it. Boston is nice too.

    DH and I left for our cruise from Charleston, and it was honestly the most beautiful place I have ever seen.


    Plus, it has the country’s oldest museum there. 🙂

    Savannah, GA

    St. Augustine, FL

    I don’t care for Houston, but Galveston, TX is very nice.

    I can honestly say, having lived in or visited every place on this list, that the only place on that list worth your time is Boston. I think a New England road trip would be amazing – you could end in the northern part of Maine! Boston has this amazing historic charm in the achitecture, city layout, etc, not to mention it’s completely walkable and has amazing restaurants! I lived there for 7 years in grad school and my first job, and loooooved it.

    DC is “ok” but who wants to travel that far just to go to a bunch of museums?

    @strawbabies:  I went to college in Galveston, and it’s sadly basically a redneck crap pile next to any ocean destination the OP will have previously gone to in their native Australia. Brown Gulf of Mexico water with Texas City refinery smells wafting in the wind….not exactly Bondi Beach. And that’s coming from a native Texan!

    DEFINITELY Boston and Charleston.  Charleston is probably my FAVORITE CITY in America.  And Boston is a close second.  You can easily do them in about 1-2 days each.

    I voted for DC, and I’d definitely recommend NYC. You can’t go wrong with those 2 cities. They’re major hubs on the east coast. NYC is hands down the most interesting city in the US. DC is more for touristy stuff like museums and national monuments. It’s a lovely city.


    Miami and the Florida Keys are good too, if you’re looking for more of a tropical, beachy vibe.


    By the way, my absolute FAVORITE city in the US is Las Vegas, NV. But that’s on the west coast.

    I’m also biased, as I live in Boston…but it seems pretty popular anyway! It’s a good walking city with a lot of history.

    My second vote was for DC, it’s a wonderful city with a lot of free activities (museums, monuments).

    Can’t go wrong either!

    @aussiebride26:  I promise it’s the nicest city, it’s beautiful and full of history and culture.  If you like seafood, Boston has some of the BEST. It’s also a great city.

    @aussiebride26:  Savannah is an amazingly beautiful and lively city full of rich history. Lots of things to do and sites to see.

    Definitely Boston! I’m not too knowledgable on southern states though.
