Re: Coming to America

Since your trip is January I'd avoid the Northeast, but I guess you do have to go to N.Y. I suggest Miami,
San Diego , ...and I hear Minneapolis is nice in January.

LA does have a lot of things to see though... Disneyland, the beaches, the women, Hollywood...
In fact, in the winter, you can go to the beach in the day and surf, then go up to Big Bear and ski or snowboard (under lights).
From LA, you can be in Las Vegas in 4 hours, by car, San Diego or Mexico in 2.
Tijuana, Mexico is fun and interesting to say the least, and it can make you appreciate living in Melboune or many other places a lot more, even... southbury. *:hide:

Re: Coming to America

ive got all the touristy things on my to do list. Like hollywood, gambling in Vegas, grand canyon. Just wondering if san fran is worth making a trip to. Also have going to a nba game on my to do list, but dunno between the knicks or the lakers yet. Washington is also a stop as well as boston and disneyworld. Any suggestions on where else to visit or cool places to visit while im in those cities?

It's in So. Dakota.

If you have a choice for the NBA game, i'd stay as far away from the knicks as possible, unless you want the cheapest tickets.... They've been horrible as of late.

Make sure to visit the bull near battery park when you get to NYC.

Re: Coming to America

So, ya coming to the US for about a month eh? Sweet! 8)

During that time, it is going to be snowing (more than likely) or just REALLY COLD in most of the states. Just an FYI.

If you are going to see an NBA game, check out Miami, LA or 76ers - Knicks aren't really worth it. Ya should check out a Steelers game too while here. haha

Niagra Falls would be worth a trip. Disney a good choice. I haven't been in too many states, so I cannot be of that much help.

Have a great time though...
