My parents just gave me the task of coming up with good vacation spots. However, much to my disapproval, my dad does not want to go out of the country...so, I have to look into good vacationing spots within the US. Currently I live in NJ. We've done the usual vacationing spots...Gettysburg, Williamsburg, Florida, Lancaster, Salem, etc. However, I would love to do a trip somewhere in the midwest to far west. However, it would need to be a spot where there are things we could do as a family. I have a younger brother, who is 17. He virtually makes vacationing impossible because he doesn't like to just relax and always has to be up and out doing something. Where are some places we could go and spend a week and have enough to do/see? We aren't really into theme parks or anything of that sort. Also, we would take a vacation like this during the summer months, while I'm home from school. Thanks!
