I'm so old one night of partying would probably kill me. Then it would be like Weekend At Bernie's.

You should go to Detroit. It is customary to wear completely blue if the natives there wear all red. This is a sign of respect and an indication you are a visitor. You will get many hugs and kisses because you are paying respect to their tradition.

When you're out west try to get to some national parks. Grand Canyon, Red Wood forest, Petrified Forest, Joshua Tree, etc are all really cool.

Joshua's Tree?

Oh the tall, white tree with a stub that looks like a huge schlong? I saw that one. Still not as impressive as Tyrone's Tree.

I was actually going to suggest Detroit, simply for the street cred. Downtown Detroit is actually a pretty normal place where one can go to a Tigers, Red Wings, or Lions game and have a pretty normal night out thereafter. So for out-of-towners it's kind of low risk, high reward. Normal and fun night out, the ability to say you went to Detroit and survived.

I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention the hundreds of miles of fresh water beauty along the coast of Lake Michigan.

Who would fly to the US with the choice of every city and go to Detroit. Because there's a bunch of places (that you wouldn't go to) that resemble war zones? That sounds terrible.

True. Comerica park is a great place to see a game. The Tigers are really good this year too.

It's sad that I've been to nearly all 50 states, seen most of the attractions, yet have lived in Arizona all my life and never seen the Grand Canyon.

Heard it is amazing, though. Arizona has a ton of natural beauty, but you'd probably want to plan a more extended trip here to really take a lot of it in.

Come from Australia to visit Jersey... Great plan!

I think you've got it covered, the country is huge so just stop here and there and try different places. You've already got a good list, so don't bother adding more. Take out Jersey and go to New Orleans though, the food alone would be worth it.

I was impressed with the sheer diversity of the state: desert, high plains, dense forests, mountains, etc. And yes you should take a drive up to the GC. Breathtaking doesn't even begin to describe it.

Oh yeah. I couldn't recommend Detroit as a #1 attraction over many of the other cities mentioned. But as a Michigan resident, I felt it was worth giving my state a mention.

And I apologize, but I didn't understand your second sentence. Are you saying Detroit resembles a war zone? Because what I was trying to say is that for as bad of a rap Detroit seems to get, there's actually a lot of great areas both downtown and metro. One could definitely carve out a Michigan adventure with a visit to the great lakes, perhaps a stop in Ann Arbor, and a Tiger game downtown followed by a comfortable nightlife at whatever may be your fancy (Greektown, casinos, Cheli's, Fox Theatre, etc.).

Again, I'm not claiming Detroit to be a #1 tourist attraction, but I certainly don't feel someone should be scared away by its reputation. The region actually has a ton to offer. It's honestly not all rubble and ruin porn like people like to suggest. So if someone was looking for an underdog USA locale, that's why I threw Detroit into the mix.









As for other parts of Michigan, a lot of natural beauty to behold:

Yeah Arizona is amazing, especially for backpacking and hiking... But I'm assuming Plowking is going later this summer, which is the worst possible time to be in Arizona. Unless you like 115 degree weather.
