Suggestions on where to go on a trip?

In a previous post, I mentioned the challenge my roommate put forth to me if I succeed, he will take me on a trip somewhere. I'm not sure where he'd take me, or if I have a choice as to where to go, but I need some suggestions as to places to visit. We both drive, he can rent a car, so getting around wont be an issue. However, the concern is finding a decent place to go that wont cost too much and will be relaxing, but at the same time, enjoyable. I want to get out of North America, so any other destinations would be appreciated. When you give a suggestion, please state why, nearest airport, attractions, currency and approximate costs of hotels, car rentals, etc. Thanks.

A drive to Alaska could be very entertaining, even if it is still North America.

I always dreamed of going to Alaska but I never even made it to the American continent at all. What a pity I'm from Germany ... :'(

Montreal, Quebec is perhaps my all-time favourite place to just walk around by myself. No other city will allow you to be on a hill overlooking the city from above, shop at fancy French boutiques, dine at some of the best restaurants in the world, see old historic buildings and modern skyscrapers, enjoy a vibrant nightlife, and watch the sun rise and set at the port - all within walking distance. You will feel as if you've walked into a different dimension. Being the worlds second largest French speaking city (second only to Paris), some would compare it to France. I, however, believe that it's in a legue of it own. The nearest airport would be the Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. A few attractions are the Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal Botanical Gardens, Mont Royal, and the Montreal Musium of Fine Arts. The currency is the Canadian Dollar. The price of a five day stay at Le Relais Lyonnais (1595 Rue St Denis, H2X 3K3 Montreal [Quebec]) is CAD 625. Prices of renting cars at the airport which I previously listed vary. However, you can see the prices for renting cars at http://www.enterpriserentacar.ca/car_rental/customSearch.do;jsessionid=YXHjN6BQYgV63khg1sMQfD6pvM5m2TfXvLVnmgStsl1LyHyWCd7V!1963052995

I've been to Quebec a couple of times, been around North America a bit, that's why I said somewhere else. I've been to Florida, Ohio, New York State, Montreal, Ottawa, Edmonton, I just want to find somewhere different.

Well you could go to MEXICO? Maybe over there you could buy a lot of nice things and see a lot of nice attractions but don't go to Juarez because I am not sure it is safe there yet, but my husband is from Guadalajara and I have heard from many people that it is beautiful there! And there is an ocean close by maybe two or three hours from there. Well hope this helps and have a great day and if you do go on a trip stay safe!!

I suggest going on a cruise...maybe to the Eastern or Western Caribbean. People think that is costs a lot of money, but when you factor in staying ina hotel room for a week or 10 days...all your meals, entertainment etc and etc. Cruising is a steal of a deal. You can leave from either Fort Lauderdale or Miami. You get to visit many ports of call all for the price of the cruise. Crisecritic.com is a great site....it helped me so much before we went on our first cruise. You will love it.
