You can take three trips. Where do you go?

My wife and I want to have kids in a couple of years, and we're trying to decide where we want to go visit before we give up (fancy, travel heavy) vacations for a little while.
Budget is somewhat of a concern, but more so is time - I want to minimize unpaid time off. Assume each trip will be about a week long. That can be stretched a little if it will really make or break the trip.
I have been to several Eastern European countries and Greece. My wife has been on a cruise to the Caribbean. That is the extent of our international travel. We are open to awesome locations both here (in the US) and abroad.
We like beautiful natural locations and history and relaxing. We don't need it to be totally white-washed and sterile and luxurious, but aren't up for really roughing it either. Examples we're considering: roadtrip around some southwestern/western US national parks, eco spa in Costa Rica, tour of castles and countryside in the UK/Scotland.
So where would you go? What are must-sees? Things that are best done by childless people?
Thank you for your suggestions!
