I spent a week in Maui last September for my honeymoon and as much as we were looking forward to some R&R in the sun, we also wanted to experience more. The activity we planned for our first full day on the island was a sunrise trip to Haleakala National Park, and a bike ride down a volcano.
Hawaii's Volcano National Park is a must-see travel location. Here's my step-by-step guide to the park and all it's wonders - including walking on the surface of Kilauea.
Joshua Tree National Park lies in the Mohave Desert and is one of the most arid landscapes in the USA.It's stark and unwelcoming at first sight. But dig a little deeper and you'll find a wonderful floral surprise and a yearning for something simpler.

Have you ever wanted to swim with 1200 pounds of fins, blubber, tail, and adorable snout? Well you can do just that if you go snorkeling with manatees. Swimming with these animals is not something everyone gets to do, but if you have the chance, take it. Being up close and personal with an animal so much bigger than you is an experience of a lifetime.
The Apollo Beach Manatee Viewing Center is the best manatee sanctuary in Florida. It boasts the largest population of manatees from November- April. Free parking and admission. There is a manatee lookout, cafe, butterfly garden, and half-mile walking path. It's the perfect location for animal lovers and environmentalists to spend an afternoon.
Been there, done it and got a first timer's badge. Even if you only come to the USA to experience Disneyland make it worth your while and allow plenty of days to explore the different resorts or worlds. They all have great educational value and there is no danger of becoming "Attention Deficit and Disorderly." Enjoy an endless medley of thrills, action and entertainment in realistic settings enhanced by immaculate landscapes.
The final part of our tour of the Western Landscapes. We head for Death Valley to Yosemite snd the Mammoth lakes. San Francisco, Monterey and back to LA.
