  1. Totally agree with your top two – really awesome cities for family travel. San Diego really does have it all, definitely check out the Aircraft carrier in addition to Sea World!

  2. we’ve been looking for places to travel in the US for when we have a baby. Surprised to see San Diego top the list. We’ve talked about Chicago, San Fran and Hawaii as our top US destinations, now we may have to add SD to the list!

  3. I’m so totally biased towards Orlando as my favorite US destination for fun, there’s simply nowhere one earth like it, but, Portland Oregon would easily get the top spot in terms of character.
    Winter there is just amazing if you love that time of year.
