    A Different Kind Of Vegas Trip

    From Redditor u/frizface:

    Vegas for nature. Easy to get cheap airline tickets and hotels. They have some great mountain bike trails in red rock national park. Great winter vacation.

    Beautiful Idaho

    From Redditor u/acarbon:

    Idaho gets a bad rep (some of it valid, some not) but it holds some of the most beautiful places I've ever experienced!

    The White Mountains

    From Redditor u/Andromeda321:

    The White Mountains of New Hampshire would definitely be a National Park if they didn’t predate the National Park system as a holiday destination. People in the northeast of the USA/Canada will know them, but outside of there most people never have (especially from farther abroad).

    A Lesser-Known California Destination

    From Redditor u/Happyxix:

    San Luis Obispo. It is in California's less popular central coast but it has Pismo beach nearby for beach and living, great breweries with Firewalker and Barrelhouse, and also great wines in Paso Robles and all over the region.

    Since it is a college town, you do have some great bars and small-town layout in the downtown area.
