In the name of research... or procrastination

Check out this list of what Yahoo Travel calls their Top 10 Places to Visit in the US Before You Die. I looked it over and while it has definite merit, I decided to come up with my own list of places I'd like to see.

1. St. Augustine Lighthouse and the Old City -Again, I've been close, but not there. I love the pictures of the lighthouse and the history of the old city.
2. Key West, Florida - And a margarita while I watch the sunset. Enough said.
3. Seattle, Washington - Mostly because it looks so darned beautiful.
4. Chicago, IL - I actually have a chance at seeing this one next year with my daughter's chorus trip. I've been a long time fan in awe of Frank Lloyd Wright and I also have always wanted to see the Great Lakes.
5. Tombstone, AZ - I loved the tales of the old west and gunfighters. I devoured all of the books in my grade school library on the subject when I was in first grade.
6. Savannah, GA - I got close. I got to the highway that passed the city, but I have a real yearning to see the old city. Especially, after I read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Oh, and of course.... there's Paula Dean.
7. San Antonio, Texas - I've been to Dallas twice, but I've always wanted to see San Antonio and the Riverwalk.
8. New Orleans - Now, I've been there once. Pre-Katrina. I'd like to go back and see the city that I loved so much as she is now.
9. Natchez, MS - The old homes on the Mississippi. I used to dream of going there.
10. All of the House of Blues Restaurants - Sounds strange, I know. I've been to two of them so far. One in New Orleans and One in Orlando. Both several times. Think of it as a pilgrimage of the blues along with good food.

What's your list? And why?
