So, I'm a serious traveler, and even though I don't get to do it often, I do do what I say I'm going to do slowly but surely.
There's a lot of people from different places here, and everyone's got their reasons why where they live rocks. So let us know
If I were, for example, going to California, what are must-dos and must-sees, and what are the cheapest ways of getting good food, rooming, etc? What to avoid as well (this is not limiting this thread to Cali)
I'll start: Houston is very event-oriented. We have lots of local-rock that ends up famous (Blue October for example), and many tour-gigs go through this area as well. We have a conveyor-belt sushi parlor, we have anime-conventions up the ass for fans of it all, our night life doesn't suck for a business oriented city, and we have the Nasa space station to visit as well as a wonderful butterfly exhibit, the galleria shopping center with an insane amount of stores, and I could go on and on, but I'd say our variety of food here is awesome as well.
