If you could visit one place in the world, where would it be?

Hi everyone,

One of my biggest passions is travel and there are very few places I wouldn't want to visit. I was wondering what some of your favorite travel destinations are.

I did a lot of traveling throughout the world when I was younger. I've been to almost all of our 50 states and now, I think, I'd like to visit the remaining states I haven't seen yet. There aren't many left but I'd still be busy for a while.

I've done the European tour twice, so I'd like to try China. I have never been to the Wharf area of San Francisco, so I'd like to go there too, and the Eastern coast sounds good too--Maine, Boston, and NYC. Lol--Take me to the crabs! I've been to Key West and the Bahamas, but I would like to go to both again--great fun! Just take me away--I'm ready!

I really don't have a desire to travel, besides I won't leave my 6 cats and the dog.

It's hard to narrow it down to one, but I've never been to Asia, so I'll say Japan. I've always had a thing for Asian art, and food

It's so hard to pin it down to just one. I'd love to take a cruise/tour of Alaska, go see Hawaaii, go see Australia, then go see Paris again, see Rome, go on a photo safari in Africa, and go to Egypt and visit Cairo and the Valley of the Dead. Maybe if I won a huge lottery.

I have always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. I would have to wait till I got a more reliable car, cause I ain't flying!

It would be toss up between France and Italy. Then again, I'd love to go to Alaska.

I'd like to see Stonehenge, the pyramids and the sphinx.
