I’ve wanted to go to Lake Powell, Utah for quite some time now. It’s beautiful and unusual, and you can rent a houseboat or go hiking. It’s also notable for having one of the seven natural wonders of the world: the Rainbow Bridge. Edit: google maps says that it’s about 17 hours from Dallas. 

Here’s a picture of Lake Powell:

I always enjoy going to Colorado. Check out Glenwood Springs, it seems to be one of the less expensive places to stay. You can take day trips to other nearby cities. The one drawback is that Colorado will probably be cold in the spring, and you may need tire chains.

I love Savannah!  It’s so charming and beautiful and just feel so Southern in the best possible way.  It’s fun to go on a ghost tour there.  You can also drive to Tybee Island for some beach fun. 

Have you been to Hot Springs, Arkansas?  We went there for our honeymoon and just loved it.  There are lakes, hills, some interesting historical sites (Bathhouse Row), and a nice Botanical Garden to walk around in.  We were there in early May. 

A little further away but still well within 24 hours is Santa Fe, NM.  Have you been there?  I absolutely LOVE New Mexico and you can definately find history, shopping, good food, and hiking all around Santa Fe and Taos.  There are many interesting Native American historical (and current) sites and the whole state feels wrapped in mystery and beauty (at least to me).

Asheville NC is supposed to be really nice.

Not sure how long a drive that is from you though.

@chasesgirl:  I’d advise against Lancaster… There’s some beautiful farmland, and the history and Amish culture are very interesting, but it’s pretty touristy.  There’s huge outlet malls and shopping centers, even a kids’ theme park.  

I second the recommendation for Asheville, NC.  You could travel through the Smokies and do some hiking, then go to the Biltmore Estate.

We’re going to Savannah for our honeymoon – I’ve asked the bees before for advice on Savannah and gotten so many fabulous ideas so when we’re back in November I’ll be sure to post for you!!!
