  1. I agree with most of that list, with the exception of Graceland. Though if it’s on your list, surprised you didn’t sneak it in during those GA commutes.

  2. You haven’t seen the Grand Canyon? It’s less than a day’s drive away from you! Bah! I would not suggest driving to the Sahara, though.

  3. I’ve seen from your list:

    The Parthenon (awesome)
    Pompeii (kiiiinda boring, even being a history lover)
    The Grand Canyon (awesome)

    I aw the outside of Graceland, which looked like an awful parking lot/tourist trap and declined.
