There was a little spot in Japan, maybe 45 min. or so from Yokota, AB. Back in the late 80s it was called the Rock. It was about a 20 foot or so waterfall on a creek. Had some fun times up there.

San Diego
Riverwalk in San Antonio - Casa Rio was good Mexican food and there was an English Pub style place that was pretty fun too. Nice to go to the Riverwalk then walk over to the Alamodome and see the Spurs play.
Ft. Lauderdale
Sometimes I miss DC too.
Back in 2002 I took a Carribean cruise, and one of the stops was Nassau. We spent all night partying in the Atlantis casino, and the following morning we had bloody mary's and did the shark tank water slide for hours. Great fun, very cool spot, and pretty awesome indoor-outdoor aquarium.

Side note- we got to chatting with one of the pit bosses in the casino. Really cool guy. He said celebrities come through there constantly, and pointed out a high-stakes private room where he said Michael Jordan dropped 6 figures in one card game just the week before.

Monument Valley and the Arches National Park, both in the southwest, are among my favorite visited places. My wife and I honeymooned in the mountains in Peru (up to Macchu Picchu), which was also a pretty stunning trip. I also loved the three days I spent a few years ago in Memphis. What a great town. In terms of sport venues, I'm very glad I got to see a game in the old Tiger Stadium before the team moved out and the city tore it down.

I loved the Dead Sea and the Masada. The Mountains to the north next to the sea of Galilee are awesome too. I also like the beaches right off of the Mediterranean. The Jordan River had be my favorite area though. I did not get a chance to see Jerusalem but I did see the desert in the south of the country. It is amazing how much of a diverse geography they have in a country in the size of New Jersey.

I went horseback riding in the Andes right on the border of Argentina/Chile basically. Unbelievable. Never breathed air so fresh and crisp

I'll second Riverwalk. Anyone going to San Antonio should definitely check it out. (and the Alamo of course)

Been many times great place! Saw Jordan vs. Bird play will never forget it.

The scoreboard will always stick in my mind with it is crappy digital numbers and the Dunkin Donuts ads on it.

The amount odd staircases and tunnels in that place always made my head spin. It was not linear at all compared to today's staduims. Fenway is much like that also.

I wish I could've been there in the glory years. Fenway is on my "to do before I die" list.

We went back in 2001 & 2002 also. They've expanded quite a bit since then. We'll be going back sometime within the next few years.

It will be the first time running the new boat 30 miles offshore and I'm pretty pumped. Its my parent 50th wedding anniversary so they are going, my sister her husband and two children, and the 4 of us so we will have a full house. I'll try to check in and see how training camp is going but we will get the local paper which does a decent job.
I was in Nags Head (basically as far north as you can be before you're in KDH) at the beginning of this month and I really want to go back. I didn't get to do any fishing when I was there but I wish I had.

Nope, I meant we were in Nags Head but the northern part of the city, almost into Kill Devil Hills. We were pretty close to the entrance to Jockey's Ridge.

Also, there is a surf shop called Whalebone right around where I stayed. They had some of hottest girls I've seen in a long time working there. So, you should probably stop in.

Re: Favorite Places You Have Visited

My favorite place was Burkittsville Maryland, where i am actually going camping this weekend.

I'm actually a big fan of the blair witch project movie. I know, laugh at me, but the atmosphere in that place at night, after watching that movie is something you have to experience yourself.

Re: Favorite Places You Have Visited

Being a history buff and being born in Brunswick, GA these are some of my favorite places to visit.

Savannah's River Street, Georgia's Antebellum Trail, Charleston's Battery. I would also be remiss if I didn't add Natchez, Mississippi to this list.

Having spent 5 years in the Navy on the USS Intrepid I got to see alot of the world free of charge, so to speak, and Spain was my favorite overseas country.

But having said that, to me, the good old US of A is tops in my book and the South is the Cream at the top.

P.S. Key West ain't bad either!
