I need a vacation. What U.S. spots are hot and happening this time of year? I'm looking to drive from MI to wherever, and don't have a ton of cash to spend on an exotic vacation. I'd like: Scenic, but yet fun sightseeing. Carnivals? FolsomFair? Car Show events/happenings Not into Rides, or over the top stuff. I'm doing it alone, so I also want fairly safe. I thought about North Carolina, TN, Minnesota or Montana. Even Virginia as the colors start to change on a color tour would be cool. Any Ideas or locations you could recommend to a person that's not seen anything further than OH?
