Solo Vacation

My dad offered to send me on a vacation alone for a week.  I've been wanting that SO BADLY but I haven't had the time or money.  If I had one, I wouldn't have the other.

Can anyone recommend any good solo destinations in the continental US?  To help rule things out, I do not like skiing and I'd rather not stay within a large city, though I won't completely rule out either.

He mentioned Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.
I REALLY wouldn't mind visiting Lake Tahoe, though.

Wow...I wish my dad could offer to send me on a solo vacation. Hmm...it depends on what you want to do. I mean, do you want to go north or stay in the south?

Please read 2nd paragraph of entry to answer that question.

I'd highly recommend Yosemite. I've been there many times and it's a great way to get away, but not actually completely get away. If that's too far, I'm sure plenty of the other national parks would be great to spend time in.

And if you do go, make friends with some of the people that work there and they'll totally tell you where to go to see the sights.

I'd also say you should check out San Francisco, it has some great places to walk around in, shop, eat, or pretty much anything else you'd like to do.

Haha, another one for Yosemite.
San Fransisco? Hmm. I'll have to read up on that place in wikitravel

San Francisco is decent. Don't, for the love of god, get a hotel _downtown_.

Reno is also interesting, although maybe a little more gambling-focused than is your bent.

And if you're into museums, Chicago has a million of 'em.

I can't stop laughing at your icon
Haha, I can't go to Reno or Las Vegas, he ruled those two out.

I think I'd get fat in Chicago. There's a lot of restaurants there I want to try. Mnn, chicago style hot dogs

San Diego's a very lovely city to visit. Just don't take my word for it. :)

Canada is a nice place to visit. And Waterloo isn't a very busy place. Not in the continental united states tho... XD
...gotta go. I think my boyfriend is attempting to burn dinner. >_>
