So let the memories be good for those who stay

You can skip Florida. Nothing but swamps, cattle and rain.

You could hit up FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. People like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Dylan and the likes have recorded there. When you come through Alabama, hit me up, i'm in the northwest part of the state.

Philadelphia is a pretty cool city if you are interested in Colonial American history. Plus cheese steaks. Some good music venues (The Electric Factory, Theater of the Living Arts, Trocadero).

You do realize that about half those states are about the size of the UK don't you?
Hope you plan on staying awhile.

Avoid Pennsylvania. There's nothing here.

I was thinking that too. I think he just wants good ideas for each state so if he goes to them he has an idea of what to do.

Skip the States and come to Canada. We have real trees, better looking women, stronger beer, and stronger weed.

theres this arsekickalicious restaurant in columbus OH (the capital) called thurmans, might have two rs. Anywho they're one of those places with the towering foot tall burgers. If you make a stop by, I recommend their cajun 151 wings if you like em hot, if not then everything else I've had there is pretty amazing. Theres usually a pretty long wait to get seated (my dad always sits at the bar and orders, saves some time, but its usually full too.

Also in Cleveland OH, there is the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, its pretty cool to stop by if you're into that sort of thing, which I'm assuming you are. Cleveland is a pretty big city, and at one point in time was the capital, They also have a Hard Rock Cafe there, which is always a pretty cool place to stop and eat

Yeah there is. You just need to put a little effort into finding it. Just go to Philadelphia or Pittsburgh and you can find plenty of fun things to do.

Yeah, I am only goin to visit a few places, that is why im trying to find out as much as possible about it so as i can fit as much in as possible. I thought it would be useful to get the views of people who live there or at least have been there rather than just a travel agency.

come to va / dc area. there's a decent music scene, you can look at the nation's capital, and party at virginia beach.

i thought this place was shit when i first moved here, but it's not too bad.

I have a bit of travelling experience already so I pretty much know how to plan etc... so shouldnt be an issue, thanks though.

West Virginia: Nothing.

No seriously. Eveyrone else says that their is nothing in their states. There is really NOTHING here. But Cleveland and Pittsburgh are somewhat close, and there are things to do there.
