To all my readers:
Thanks for following along on our trip. I hope that I have caused you to add (or maybe subtract) places on your “Bucket List.” I know that this trip allowed me to cross off several places on my travel to-do list.
So what were the conclusions after two weeks of schlepping suitcases and chewing up miles on the highways of the USA?
Best Place — Arches National Park, near Moab, UT
Best Small Town — Eureka Springs, AR
Best Scenic Drive — San Juan Skyway from Silverton to Ouray (although this choice was difficult; there were so many lovely drives)
Best City — Kansas City, MO ( a definite surprise!)
Most Moving Attraction — Okalahoma City National Memorial
Best Shopping — Kansas City (Country Club Plaza, because of its ambience and architecture)
Best Restaurant — Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbeque, Kansas City
Best Religious Site — Christ of the Ozarks, Eureka Springs
Best National Park — Arches
Best Hotel Value — Wyndham Resort on the Meadows, Branson, MO
Our next trip is coming up in October. We will go to Israel and tour the Holy Land, a place that I have always wanted to visit.
