President Bush has asked Americans to get back to their normal lives, so now it's not only enjoyable but patriotic to get on a plane and go someplace. Plus, with the low fares airlines are offering, it's the best time to "see the USA."

So, if you want to do the right thing for your country, here are some great places to think about visiting:

CHICAGO - The "city that
works" works for tourists too. Enjoy Michigan Avenue, the Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, the Field Museum and the Lincoln Park Zoo.

NEW ORLEANS - Bourbon Street is one of the most exciting avenues in the country. You can also enjoy a bayou cruise on a sternwheeler, great Cajun cuisine and "all that jazz."

LAS VEGAS - The "theme park for adults" is always coming up with new and exciting twists. See New York-as-amusement-park, stay in an art museum, or take a gondola ride in the Nevada desert. And of course you'll come back rich if your luck is right.

SAN DIEGO - The "All American City" has the country's best weather. You can also see the fleet come in, enjoy Sea World, and the world's greatest zoo.

SAN FRANCISO - The "city by the bay" is the tourist's favorite. And who wouldn't enjoy Fisherman's Wharf, Nob Hill, Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, and the nearby Wine Country?

SAN ANTONIO - The Alamo is an inspiring visit, and then there's Riverwalk,
Spanish missions and a surprising art museum.

PORTLAND, OREGON, - There's
microbreweries, art museums, microbreweries,
parks, microbreweries, the Cascade Mountains, mictrobreweries - get the idea?

SANTA FE - There's native American art and jewelry,
antique galleries, old mission churches, and great Southwestern cantinas.

ORLANDO - Besides Mickey,
there's Universal Studios, Sea World, Victoria Station, and, of course, the warm Florida sun.

Those are a few great American destinations, so with fares the way they are, what are you waiting for? Contact your travel agent and enjoy!
