Last minute vacation help please ... My wife and I love to hike and see national park beauty and we've decided we'd like to visit Great Smoky Mountain National Park during the third week of September (both Tennessee and N. Carolina sides?) - some brief questions in explanation... [more inside]
Newport Oregon lodging possibilities? [more inside]
My wife and I are traveling to Washington DC for a work-week vacation. We love musuems and I have many visits planned (Smithsonian, LOC, Air-Space, etc.). What are not-to-miss museums/historical monuments? And most of all - when I'm all "museumed-out" - what are the best night out and local fun stops we should not miss?
