Where would you go on vacation to take pictures?

We need advice.
Kathie and I want to go on a vacation but we cannot decide where to go. We want to go somewhere we have not been before. Somewhere we can take walks and take pictures. We love the outdoors. We have been to Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula, Monterey California, San Francisco, Phoenix Arizona, Las Vegas, Florida, Chicago, New Orleans and New York City. That is where we have been over the last 15 years. We are OK with metropolitan areas but prefer historical places, mountains, rain forests, “the big outdoors”. We are not into camping or tents. Roughing it would be a Motel 6.
So, can you give us some recommendations for some great locations to vacation? Take into account the time of the year. We went to New Orleans in the month of July and it was not good! Where have you been and where would you stay? Where would you go to take pictures? We are looking for suggestions within the North American Continent. Europe etc. is out of our range for now.
Thank you,
William and Kathie Aeschliman

Idea 2

I think some festivals let organizations set up and pass out info. I would like to do that for the club and look into give aways like key chains, calendar cards.....something we can have our logo on. Even this would take planning

What do you think about this??

Idea for the club

I have an idea for the camera club.
Could we set up a tent/booth for club members to display and sell their photos at festivals? There are a number of large festivals in Indiana such as the Jonny Appleseed festival here in Ft. Wayne. I have been to the Madison Festival in Madison Indiana many times and there are always several booths set up by photographers. I think it would be a good way to display our photos and get a chance to sell some of our prints. The professional photographers in the club could advertise their services.
It would require some investment in the booth and the cost for space at the festival. It would also require people to work the booth. It would require a lot of work to set up and manage, but think of the exposure.
Club members would supply the prints.
I have a wood working work shop and I could help manufacture boxes to display the prints. A tent could be rented for the occasion.
What do you think?
