My Favourite hobbies are Travel, Photography and Making friends.
As per my hobbies, I will be always capturing the best scenic views in my cam and also making travel to different places.
As a part of this, (and also most of the frihosters are from US) I started this discussion and in this, Please share your Travel to different places in US so that I can visit soon in coming Quarter.
According to me, This will be so beneficial to one and all frihosters to share.
California is the best sporting every environment from desert to beach to lush rainforest. I guess it just depends on what you are looking for in a visit. If you give me more information on what you are looking for I can give you better suggestions...
I am planned to come to sandiego in coming quarter.
According to friends, there are more faulous places in east side of US ie Boston, Newyork, New jersy, Miami.,,, etc..,
But my trip was to San-diego....So I need more options & very scenic places in the west coast of US... can you please.
If you enjoy photography i'm from St.Louis Missouri. If you go to forest park during the fall its amazing with the trees. You can now watch a baseball game from the Arch at the new Busch stadium.
I do warn you that you shouldn't go to east st.louis even though thats best places to take pictures across river unless you have some sort of security there. (bad neighborhood).
Places in the St.Louis Area include, Union Station, The "loop" (blue berry hill is a legend there.), Forest Park (had redbull soapbox derby last year there), Stop for some fun at Six Flags (lines are at 0 in October), City Museum (i'm not big on normal museums but that ones amazing. The Science center there is also cool which is close to the loop were it has one of those walk across the highways, they have radar detectors you can use and glass floors with the cars underneath you.
Hope this helps
St. Louis - It is also called as WINE Country. Am I correct??
As a habit, i fond of capturing scenic views with my cam. I'll try to get the total information soon.
I heard about Blue berry will be a great place to visit.
Its totally special for dates. Can you please give more inforamtion regarding this..
Finally thanks a lot....
Ahh the wine.. there is that but its more famous for the beer..
I am not a drinker but the tour is very very very good.
Anheuser Bush Company is based in St. Louis.
Take a tour at the Factory. That place is good to visit though around anytime after thanksgiving they put up all their christmas lights then.
I have to go right now i'll get back to you on the blue berry hill later
I am also not a drinker... BUt lets see how it makes.....
Please give me the inf asap.... donot forget....
Thanks once again....
Yah i'm no drinker, but the tour is amazing
Blue Berry Hill~
Blue Berry Hill Mailing List (You get updates on what is happening)
Over the years, Blueberry Hill was honored in the following categories as well:
SIX FLAGS ST.LOUIS THEME PARK
***Tony hawk is going to be going there but I'm not sure when exactly***
There is new ride there that he is going to be promoting.
Batman the ride is a must if you go there.
Also.. they do boat tours sometimes i was looking into it.. But there are these huge casino's going in close to the river so i'm not sure if they have the tours going currently.
Here is screenshot of the new busch stadium being made. (i wanted to give you idea of what type of shots you can get)
St.louis Mills Mall is a great spot to go also if your a hockey lover. The st.louis Blues hockey team actually practices at a rink there! The odds of you getting player signatures are 1/3 very good!
Also.. Try not getting a hotel in the center of city.. Its not really worth it. If you go a little way out of the main city prices are much better and you dont have to worry about paying for parking
Just one piece of advice:
DON'T visit Florida, despite what everyone says about it being a paradise.
There are really only 4 things worth going there for:
1: Theme parks (Faketown, USA)
2: Beaches (Every coastal state has beaches, all the southern ones have good beaches)
3: Everglades (If you wipe the mosquitoes out of your eyes, you might be able to see an alligator.)
4: Keys (Worth visiting, but they're way out of the way and can be a deathtrap if a bad hurricane comes unexpectedly.)
Visit instead: Smokey Mountains (North Carolina), Columbia River Gorge (Washington/Oregon border)
I visited the smokey mountains i hiked!
There is a very good rib place there.. Its actually famous but i forgot name! I visited north carolina like 5 years ago
Ohhhh!!! Thanx all dears....
this summer im going to Santa Barbara. But I'm Swiss, so I really don't know this region.
I really like the American popular sport like Basketball and Icehockey and I want to learn the American Baseball a little bit better. I also like making photos and the beach with all this surfing stuff.
So can anybody here give me a little insiders' tip for this region?
Of course it will be beneficial.. I've got travelling tips anything from which hotel to stay to what to eat.. it's good when you know it and what just wander around.
Yeah i also heard that it is a very nice place to visit in Summer.
Can anybody give some scrap on this........
That would really be best as a completely new thread.
not to suggest a comparison to the that of the great northwest (Yosemite, Yellowstone, etc) but there's fine scenery in the northeast, particularly during autumn foliage. From the White Mountains in New Hampshire to Acadia National Park on Mt Desert Island in Maine, you'll find an abundance of areas to photograph. Mountains, Rivers, lakes, ocean and islands all enhanced with bursting fall color. In New England, when visibility isn't all it could be then we turn to historic architecture and covered bridges and cascading waterfalls. Is that to suggest a comparison to Niagara Falls, no of course not.
My girlfriend and I always pack the itinerary with foul weather activities, but we plan our vacations with similiar objectives as yourself. We love day hikes and taking pictures of beautiful scenery. Well, let me show you instead. Here's our '06 vacation to the coast of Maine. The focus is on Acadia National Park but you can there's much more worthy of exploration. http://www.mainecoastdesktop.frih.net/page01
I forgot to mention that our Maine trip was not during foliage peak, which is a mistake we won't be making this year in New Hampshire. Other areas we've yet to explore are Lake Winnipesaukee, Mt Sunapee and the Dartmouth College Campus. In Maine we did visit Camden and Camden Hills State Park but more time is needed there as well. Blue Hill is a peninsula that affords excellent views back toward Acadia. In the pkotos from Beech Mt Nad Sargent Mt, Blue Hill Mt is that lone peak looming across Western Bay. That's a stop we missed unfortunately.
Of course when people think of Maine they think of Baxter State Park and perhaps the Rangeley Lake region, two others that we hope to get to sometime soon. I've researched Rangeley already and two hikes I really want are up Bald Mt and Aziscohos Mt. I hope I was able to assist you some...take care and good luck!
Oh Thanks for your valuable information as I love Photography .
Hope I can capture a lot of scenic views from there............
