I agree with your New Orleans choice . I have never been outside of Houston. How would you describe the hill country?

The place I have been that stays in my mind is New Orleans. Love the swamps & historical places! Another is Texas Hill Country. Love all the historic sites & the beautiful scenery.

Canadian Rockies (Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, Yoho). We go every couple of years. Otherwise, Tetons, Cascades, Glacier-Waterton.

We love New Mexico and take trips there frequently, with the last visit being this past November. When we were younger we would camp most of the time but as we have aged this has less appeal so we usually rent a house or condo. This time we found a charming stone house in Abiquiu, New Mexico near Georgia O'Keeffe's house and Ghost Ranch. It was located off a series of country gravel and dirt roads and gave one the feeling of  privacy—with civilization nearby. We enjoyed the walks at the Ghost Ranch, the fall foliage, and trips into Santa Fe. Our dog, and traveling companion, was welcome and loved being able to walk with us off leash in the New Mexico sand. Maybe we will return this fall.

There are so many places that I have not been that I still want to see but there are some special places that call you back..

the first is the city of New York.. no other place, and I have been fortunate to see many, has ever felt like coming home to me.

The Smoky Mountains.. I look forward to seeing them every year

 and once more .. the beautiful city of New Orleans.

The San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado.  I've been going there whenever I could - summer and winter - since I was first taken there camping and hunting by my parents in 1953.   Nice views like this one......
