Just about any Chicago neighborhood (hood, not suburb) outside of downtown. DT is sick for late night riding (no traffic in the financial district, well-paved roads, etc.) but downtown is mainly for work, and tourists - it’s amateur hour.

My friends always visit and want to stay DT and bitch about it being quiet while the neighborhoods 5 mins away are poppin’ until 5am

All northside though. Other than Pilsen (big Mexican neighborhood) and maybe seeing a Sox game there’s no reason why you’d want to go to the south side.

Also all of Wisconsin. My crew and I ran a relay race from Madison back to the chi and I was really impressed with all of it. Madison is a super fun college town, lots of places to drink and people to party with. Lots of uber rural locations too. Rolling hills, corn friends, wildlife, etc.

Traffic and parking are fine, you're coming at the wrong time. But homelessness and crime have spiked

Only thing really worth visiting near me is Cedar Point if you like roller coasters.

I got one for your Chris! Come ride your bicycle through the Canadian Rocky Mountains

There's a route that's really not that steep called "the Yellowhead". Start in Hinton Alberta, ride to Kamloops BC. The summit is already behind you, so it's mostly flat or down hill. Enough scenery to blow your socks off. You'll need about a month to do it though.

Tons of smaller trips in there too if you don't feel like riding/camping for a month.

Dad's family used to have multiple houses up there, now it's down to one cousin on Rainbow Point and another that bought one of the old Wrigley places. We went more often when I was younger (<10), but I have been back a couple times since. Definitely not my kind of crowd anymore, though the $$$ would be nice.

Dude that’s my jam. Definitely want to do some stuff up that way. Im doing the Detroit marathon next, it requires a passport bc you run the tunnel and into Canada and back

Definitely want to go up there with my bike and get lost for a while though.

I was just in Newport beach a few weeks ago at Pelican Hill Resort. My company sent us there for a week for our annual top performer trip. Played 18 holes on their amazing course. Went to Balboa for the day and did a whale watching tour. We also ate at this place called Rogers Farmhouse Restaurant. Food was amazing.

Also got a chance to hit up Laguna Beach, Montage and Corona del Mar. Amazing place and def want to come back.

The GA Aquarium is pretty awesome. The new Falcons and Braves stadiums are pretty legit too. Six Flags could be cool too if they hired anyone other than teens who couldn't give a shyt less about their job. Outside of that, Krog Street, Highlands and midtown have some really good restaurants.

Anywhere in the Cascade or Olympic mountains



Leavenworth is great. It's a little Bavarian town snuggly fit in the heart of the Cascades and they know how to throw an Oktoberfest party


Safeco field is amazing.



The Metropolitan Grill


https://www.tripexpert.com/seattle/r...opolitan-grill

https://diningoutonanexpenseaccount....ike-any-other/


Pioneer Square Underground. Seattle sits 12 ft above Ol' Seattle. You can do a tour and see just how crazy it was to build upon.



multitude of breweries

Love the Tampa/St Pete area. Most of the amenities of big city life, **** to do, etc. You’re close AF to the water, and it’s a little quieter than Miami, ft lauderdald, Orlando.

Florida’s gulf coast is gorgeous.

And the ladies

Yeah, it started to look like portland (I hate portland almost as much as I hate flyover states). The city council is beginning to approve various measures that will bring Seattle back to its former awesomeness

Yes Charleston is awesom. Also College of Charleston I believe part of their admissions policy is: hot female, blonde hair, blue eyes, 5' 7" with a southern accent.

We have a pretty awesome civic arena that gets covered with corn every year that you just have to see. We also have a carving of an Indian chief being done that just needs a little more money to finish.

Not much else going on.
