In need of a fun place to go

    Alright...I'm looking for suggestions for a place to go during my vacation. My first set of plans fell through and I can't decide what I want to do. I'd like to go to the beach (I'm just 3 hours away) but it will be packed this weekend. I don't mind flying somewhere, but I don't think I want a cross-country flight. So, any suggestions on a two-day agenda, leaving out of Atlanta, Ga.?
    Thanks!!!! :) ;D 8)

    You're only 15 minutes from Tahoe.

    Seriously, I've never been that far south, but Virginia is gorgeous; so if you can make it that far north, take the Colonial tour.

    Chicago. Fabulous shopping and good dining. Even better if the Cubs are in town.

    Rafting in West Virginia

    Forget my suggestion, I second Cadet's. Chicago's my kind of town, and I'll be there in two weeks.

    Key West--cheap rates this time of year
    Montreal--not a holiday up there
    Drive up Blue Ridge Parkway

    Also, sometimes you can get a cruise booking late for pretty cheap--they really hate leaving with empty staterooms.

    New Hampshire. We can canoe down the Connecticut River and then climb the Quechee Gorge.

    I second this -- if you like outdoorsy stuff. West Virginia has some of the best whitewater rafting in the country. I want to say the New River Gorge is where I used to go in high school, and it was fantastic. (I could be wrong on the river's name).

    Or you could go to Chattanooga. Supposed to be nice rafting thereabouts, too.

    Maine is wonderful this time of year because it cools off a lot at night. The flights out of Atlanta aren't too expensive, nor is the flight that long.

    Chattanooga is a highly underrated city.
