Vote of the week: Best destination for visiting outside the parks?
Written by Robert Niles
Sorry for the lack of posts over the past few days. But here's something to talk about over the weekend.Tweet
By the fact that you are on this site, I'm pretty confident that I can assume you like visiting theme parks. But there are other things one can do on a vacation in addition to visiting the parks. I've picked five U.S. destinations with top parks in the Theme Park Insider reader ratings. Of those, which has the best vacation offerings *outside* their theme parks?
Lake Erie and Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame? Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown? Canoeing, the beach and the Kennedy Space Center in Florida? Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park? Or Los Angeles, with the beach, Beverly Hills and local mountains?
(FWIW, I left the international options off the list because it just seemed too weird to me to throw Paris and Tokyo in as options here. Maybe in a later poll I'll take the top two options here and face 'em off against those cities.)
Pick your choice, then talk about it in the comments.
