There are two places I'd like to visit again.  First is Ghirardelli's chocolate factory in San Francisco, which probably needs no explanation - close your eyes and imagine rich, fragrant chocolate of all kinds.  Their hot chocolate is delicious and their hot fudge sundaes are huge and scrumptions. 

 

You can can smell the cholate in the air all over the area!

There are two places I'd like to visit again.  First is Ghirardelli's chocolate factory in San Francisco, which probably needs no explanation - close your eyes and imagine rich, fragrant chocolate of all kinds.  Their hot chocolate is delicious and their hot fudge sundaes are huge and scrumptions. My music partner and I used to play music on the street corners and then head for the chocolate factory!   The  second place is The Empress Hotel in Victoria, BC.  My music partner and I performed Renaissance/Baroque music there twice for their high tea, and were later treated to high tea from the hotel.  The hotel is charming, and the surrounding area is beautiful, especially Bouchart Gardens and the view of the ocean.

We were in Skagway in 2000. Loved the town, and especially enjoyed Olivia's restaurant at the Skagway Inn.

I have to add one more place.   Valdez Alaska.    the harbor tour was like a National Geographic Special.  Whales breeching,  300 or more sea lions on the beach, with mountian goats on the hill side above them, Puffins in the water,  and then   the Glacier "calving"  while we were getting our piture taken in front onf the glacier.    Hand feeding Eagles in the RV park.   A Valdeze was a real suprise.  It is worth the side trip to spend a day there.

There are so many places to explore in the good ol' USA I can't imagine leaving the contiguous 48!  Would love to do one more cross-country drive, off the interstates.  Ala Route 66.  Or I can just go to downtown Chicago and museum-hop!
