18th Birthday Present

Alright so i’m not sure if this is allowed here but i thought i would get your guys opinions on this. So for my 18th Birthday (September 30th) my dad thought it would be a good idea to fly anywhere in the US for a weekend trip since i don’t drive or anything. Im from Los Angeles so LAX and i’ve been to: HNL, MSP, IAH, ATL, MCO, RDU, IAD and SAT. So i’m hoping you guys could help me out on where i should pick!

I mean, I don’t live in the States, but maybe a nice trip to New York or San Francisco :)

I remember visiting both of those places, and they were my favorite along with LA.

MCO Sounds nice! If your father could drive and you’re interested in astronomy go to the Kennedy Space Center, I’ve been there it’s definitely worth the visit, if you’re not interested in astronomy, you could drive to Daytona Beach get a discovery flight, if you can afford, or you can go to the beach on either coast of florida!

Dayton to be precise. Where the Wright Brothers are from and they have a pretty big museum.

NYC sounds amazing, Im currently looking at Anchorage, Washington DC and Miami! I’ll let you guys know!

I live in Orlando, and I have got to say, it is a beautiful place. If you fly here, I would recommend flying jetBlue if you can, unless you have TSA precheck. Plus, the weather here isn’t super freaking cold like in some other places. Come visit the City Beautiful! If you have the time, come down to Winter Park where I live and check out historic Park Avenue. While you are down there, check out the Winter Park scenic boat tour. It has guides and they are funny. Hope you have a wonderful 18th birthday, wherever you decide to go.

Kahului is the best. Come!

Come to phx with us! It’s a really nice city and it’s not 115 degrees rn :)

Why not visit the birthplace of aviation, Kitty Hawk, North Carolina? The closest commercial airport is in New Bern (EWN), so you’d have to connect through CLT, and then it’s about a 2.5hr drive to the actual memorial.

Go to Guam for some island hopping 😈

Come to Kahului, we have plenty of things to do and the flights are non-stop and cheap on select airlines! There are many Aviation things to do, Helicopter tours ahem but the best is the scenery! There are beautiful falls and its nothing City like! Come on over and enjoy the luv or the Hawaiian Hospitality on the way.

You should try PAE in Everett, close to Seattle. Although Alaska serves flights there, LAX does not have a route there, you’ll have to go to SEA. That’s where the Boeing Factory is, and you can also find an occasional Dreamlifter there

I would go for Anchorage, especially since you have already been to IAD. DC is really nice, my favorite US East Coast City.

Yes, fly to hnl and then take the island hopper to Guam. That is the definition of scenic. I flew it on IF once and it was wonderful!

KSEA is a great option :D

Dallas or Anchorage are pretty great, and that’s not even just because I live/lived in those places; they actually have a lot to offer visitors!

Thanks everyone for the ideas!! I’m looking at connecting flights for example: LAX-DFW-HNL so i can try to fly a wide body!

MY BIRTHDAY TWIN (not the same year)

Ima be honest, go to NYC specifically downtown, Im sure there’s many things to do there as a former New Yorker, like games shopping and the Mclaren Speedtail at the Microsoft thingy. I live in ATL and if you don’t go to downtown then it’s pretty boring ngl. Anyways other then that I suggest NYC!
