Hello~I’m an Atlanta newby to this forum, and am looking for help in planning an educational vacation for my husband and me. We’re both 60(+/-), and yearly we must attend a 4-day work related conference that’s held in different parts of the country. We always get a rental car and tack on a few extra days for exploring. And since my husband is actually the one required to attend, I usually duck out of the “ladies program” and go on a juicy scientific/history-like safari of my own. For example: Vermont Robert Frost home/grave, whale watching, Boston history stuff Vegas (yuck) Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon south rim Washington St. Sunset Cone Crater, Mt. St. Helens, whale watching Whistler, BC Zip-lining, San Juan Islands, Seattle Phoenix Challenger Space Center, Grand Canyon north rim, Anasazi culture Chicago FermiLab, Field Museum, Museum of Science & Industry (I also just finished NASA’s Space Camp - what a hoot!) So the trip this year is scheduled for Sept in San Diego, and I’m dreading the struggle to find information. You wouldn’t think it would be that hard to do, but I don’t even know the appropriate search terms to use! Any ideas you guys might have would be greatly appreciated.
