    yeah, try to avoid the shady areas at night so you dont have a negative experience. i have known a couple who were mugged in NY on their first day visit and immediatly went back saying how crime ridden America is. i think alot of people elswhere think similar, then again, maybe there is more crime here than elsewhere, i dunno but doesnt seem so to me.

    You could easily say the same for any populated area really.

    That was in 2001, caused in part by Texan energy brokers. I love where I live, Sacramento does suck though

    If you swing by Texas , You must check out (DFW) Dallas Fortworth ,Its one big cluster fook , I beleive the last count , we had over 5 mill people lol Check out deep Elum and hairy hines and of course both down towns dallas and fortworth

    You should also check out Austin , Big ole Party town it has a few Colleges and the bigest is University of Texas
    with 50+K students I think the Girl to boy count in this city is 3 to 1 so if you cant get laid in Austin you cant get laid anywhere lol


    Alot more to see in this state but its freaking big you can spend months just traveling around this state and still not see it all

    ps: I guess this could be said about any part of the world but be carefull with the cab drivers and the prices they try cheat you out of ,

    Well I know you said you were not going to visit any Southern area, but come on you gotta come and see N'awlins (New Orleans) come and experience Mardi Gras, get drunk, see a few boobs(actually you can see that anytime of the year tho :p), that is if you can make it here by Feb 24th.

    Also if you are looking for work, quite a few bars hire as well other places.

    Yeah Sactown sucked back when I lived near there. It just seemed to keep getting more dumpy. I miss a few places that no where in Texas can even come close. Do I want to move back, oh hell no.

    Glad to be gone. Left a lot of friends there, have not seen my family since, but still am glad to be out of there.

    Norvekh - One of the main reasons I enjoyed the time in Ohio was because me and my brother were staying with an old friend and it was one of the first times we'd spent time in the US in a place other than the more typical tourist spots, if you know what I mean.

    The nicest state I went to was Oregon, I loved Portland :)

    Are you wanting to go sightseeing, or just hang out in another country for a little while?

    If you want to sightsee, definitely go to NYC, Boston, D.C/Virginia. Lots of history in that area. You can see the White House, the Pentagon, Treasury building (where they print sheets of money), the Constitution, the Smithsonian musem, the U.N., Paul Revere's house, Old north church, you can visit the Boston Tea Party location and throw a box of tea in the water (irony?), lots of war memorials.

    Other places of interest might be Miami, New Orleans, Houston, Southern California, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Seattle.

    Getting better, every day. There were a lot of business that left or did not re-open after the storm which is kind of sad but that's life.

    I myself, bred, born and raised in MN for 30+ yrs, just moved here a few yrs ago, and I love it, the culture, the music, the party all the time mentality, the FOOD some of the best in the world is right here in NOLA.

    Also seems while some parts of the country are suffering from the economic woes, we here in the NOLA area seem to be doing ok and making money, that is until the bubble bursts. <knocks on wood>

    We have our problems just like any other large city, just be aware of where you are at and avoid some areas like the plague, especially when the sun sets and the mutants come out. LOL

    In that case

    I would definitely recommend visiting the D.C. NY, Boston, Arlington Virginia area. Lots of things to look at over there. I haven't been over there since 9/11 so I don't know if some of the things have closed down or not. I don't think you are allowed inside the statue of liberty anymore. It's actually a lot smaller up in the crown than you would have thought. They have talked about re-opening it (which they should since it's so cool).

    It's a big country and you won't be able to see everything. I'd recommend places like Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota, Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, Kitty Hawk in North Carolina, etc. but other than those attractions, there isn't much else to do in those states (no offense to people who live there).

    Why anyone would want to come here is beyond bizarre.
    I'd go to Mexico or Brazil before I came here. Just my 2 cents.
