What’s the most American place for a vacation?

June 4, 2014 

What is the most American place you can visit on vacation? That question was asked by Washington Post writer John Kelly recently. He got a lot of responses, but nearly all of the suggestions were east of the Mississippi River.

It got The Bee’s editorial board members wondering if our readers would pick the same places. So we’re asking: What is the most American place to vacation? We’re not by any means excluding sites, amusement parks or national monuments on the east coast. We’re not excluding anywhere.

Please send us your suggestions for Most American Vacation Places by sending emails to: mdunbar@modbee.com or letters to American Vacation, PO Box 5256, Modesto, 95352-5256. If you have photos, send those along, too.
