So...there's baked beans...

TravelFilter: I am going to visit my mom for July 4th. She has recently moved to the area (Newport TN). There is a Bush's baked beans factory. What else is there to see and do within a 30 minutes or so drive? I'll be there for the 4th and then that whole weekend with my boyfriend. She's having a big party with lots of visitors the whole weekend, so we're not going to be at their house the whole time. I'm looking for things for Boyfriend42 and I do when we are not stuffing ourselves full of potato salad, hamburgers, hot dogs, and of course, baked beans. [more inside]

Looking for creative ideas for a vacation photo project

I'm taking a road trip through a really scenic area of the US and I want to go beyond boring vacation photos. My skill level is somewhere between taking snapshots at the family reunion and taking artsy photos of flowers and trees. I'm no Ansel Adams. I'm looking for cool projects to undertake, especially if they can later be incorporated into maps or timelines or video. [more inside]

Must-See Scenic Drives and Attractions Driving West from Cincinnati to Seattle

What are some must-see scenic drives and attractions to be found on a one-way roadtrip West from Cincinnati, OH to Seattle, WA. Mid-40s opposite-sex couple who love photography, don't like hiking very much but appreciate a good hot spring, and are what you would call "foodies". We're thinking about the Badlands and Black Hills, but what else? Also, what stretches of road can we avoid to stave off boredom, and where should we drive instead of them? We can go a bit out of our way, but would like to be back at our jobs within a week.

Where is a good spot to take pictures of a car in Seattle?

What's a good place in or near the greater Seattle area, to park and photograph a car? I'm looking for somewhere which is a nice area or has a nice backdrop, has space to stop a car, and which is generally fairly deserted (so that camera etc. can be set up without constantly being the path of people/cars, and pictures can be taken without having to wait for people to leave the frame, etc). To make things harder, this would most convenient during the day on a weekend, but if a good place is most empty during office hours (or whatever), it might be worth the inconvenience.
