There is a tentative plan at the moment, that I may go to Vegas to check out God's meet. However that will only happen if I can scrape together more reasons to justify the holiday.

So I put it to you, the Achaean community, entertain me. If you want to meet up, post here, maybe enough people in one area will group together and we'll have a mini meetup. If you think there is something cool that I must absolutely go see, suggest it here. If I go I plan to stay a couple of weeks strictly in the month of July. Hell if someone is accomodating enough to show me what July 4th is all about I'd be blown away hopefully in the non-literal sense.

Thing I must do - bullfrog and fireworks (not at same time)

Also this isn't limited to U.S.A, I'd be up to visiting Canada as well if you make a strong argument purely because I've never been before.

    I'm confused about the bullfrog part. You just want to see a bullfrog?

    Tree frogs are awesome. I've been picking them up and carrying them around since I was a wee little girl. Cane toads make me run screaming though.

    If you really wanna see a great fireworks show without being hands on, big cities are generally the way to go if you don't mind the crowds. Want lots of hands on? I highly suggest native american reservations. Since their laws are different they usually have the fireworks that aren't legal outside the reservations, and you can blow them up there on the reservation usually as long as you find a safe spot. They always have tons in stock, and lots of variety.

    I'd be happy to show you any amphibian you'd like. We could catch a couple of bullfrogs to play with and then scout out some tree frogs and maybe an amphiuma.We could even go kayaking in a nearby swamp. We have okay fireworks here but my place is not posh.  In fact I call it "the rat shack" ( there are no rats). My sister calls it "the divorcee pit of despair and broken dreams" but she's an ass. 
     yes, sir.

    Chiming in from Chattanooga, TN, in the heart of the Deep South. Unless they've moved since I last knew, @Telendrieth is here in town, I recall @Austere about 3 hours away in Clarkesville, @Mayapple (and @Trey?) about 2 hours away in Atlanta, and if I open the throat and suppress the gag reflex, we might be able to swing @Jhui and @Gyrth as special celebrity guests if they're still up in Knoxville. I don't recall other names, but I know there's a smattering of others in North Carolina and Alabama that might crawl out of the woodwork if something started to take shape.

    I'm certain that the bigger cities will have better 4th of July celebrations, but for our part, we do set a river on fire.

    My vote, of course, is for the Emerald City on the Pacific coast. You can watch 3 or 4 different fireworks shows at once from the observation deck of the Space Needle or the Columbia tower.

    I will second Aodfionn's suggestion, adding that only in the Emerald City can you observe two different mountain ranges, a volcano, the pacific ocean, and a rain forest from the same place you are watching 3 or 4 fireworks shows from. Also, we have a great number of Native American reservations in close proximity, if you want to follow-up on someone else's suggestion and do some hands-on firework fun.... oh, and we have frogs and craft beer.

    If you want the prototypical 4th of July celebration, go find someone in the south or in Idaho.

    Edit: This is not meant to be a jab. Folks in the more deeply patriotic states just go nuts on the 4th to an awesome degree, if you want the hollywood version of the 4th

    I vote the D.C. area. You can have lots of history (in as far as something 250 years old is 'old') and see plenty of fireworks.

    Floridians are crazy. I'm in a mad house of republicans, strange habits and a rotting, Hellish swampy thing. Send help!

    (In reality, Florida has Disney World, Universal, Harry Potter world and a bunch of other interesting theme parks. If you're not going for those or for one of the beaches, or to visit various Achaeans (myself, Jarrod, Dragonknight, Tessa, Kresslack come directly to mind, but I'm probably missing a few), then you're just better off not coming, promise. It's almost summer too.)

    Agreed, but I'd recommend coming here any day except the 4th of July, because the crowds and traffic are always ridiculous.

    I'm just over ninety minutes away from Chattanooga in Tennessee. And might force myself to make myself available for a meet.
