You may want to briefly visit Canada. Hike the Maitland Trail and view the niagara falls.
Other than that sounds like a good trip. Just don't loose all your money in Vegas.

I was gonna say Alabama, just because it's portrayed as a place very rich in music - say Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Stop by West Virginia if you're interested in seeing an oddity of the United States. There's some unique characters here. A lot of history here - WV is the only state formed because of the Civil War.

I'd be off to places like the Sierra Nevada, Salt Lake City, Little Bighorn River, Black Hills, etc.

America is the best place for some good old american west history xP
