    I've been to Charlotte a ton of times. Only recommendation is to go eat at Price's Chicken Coop.

    Never been to Jacksonville, but I feel like Charlotte barely qualifies as a city. It's...bleak. Bank corps and nothing else.

    Ugh is right..

    Final answer is: in and out of Dallas the same day, 2 nights in Jacksonville (at least there is a beach), and in and out of Charlotte the same day.

    Amelia Island is nice, but it's a bit of a hike out of central Jacksonville.

    St. Augustine just south of Jacksonville is touristy as fuck, but it's better for a day of wandering around on foot than Jacksonville is.

    After spending 36 hours in North Florida, I can assure everyone that all stereotypes you have of the state are still alive and well. As is the lord. And the 20 or so radio stations that sneak the righteous pathway to redemption into every song. Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to smoke pot with historical figures, like Jesus? No, but the guy with four ex-wives, five children, and three vasectomies sure has. Sad story, he actually loved two of his wives.

    Only highlight was squeezing in a decent poker session in at Best Bet, a very nice poker room in the heart of Jacksonville. In fact, I discovered it via local radio show I came accross and they were talking about how people in Florida play poker. It was pretty accurate. They buy-in for the minimum and like to go all-in more than they should.

    I drove out to the beaches (didn't make my way to St. Augustine) and wasn't all that impressed.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on things to do in Santa Fe? I would welcome thoughts on food, hikes, historic monuments, drinking spots, etc.

    I went to the Georgia O'Queeffe museum and disliked it immensely, although as a child not in control of my own itinerary the blame lies squarely on my mother.

    Ride around old Montreal, have a smoked meat sandwich from Lester's, Poutine, Club Super Sexe, Joe Beef if you can get a reservation or I can name a half dozen other fantastic restaurants if you want.

    Oakland is the easiest/best. SFO is usually a bit pricier and is known for heavy delays due to weather and general big-airport issues, SJC is quite a ways away. Oakland is just small enough to not run into as many delay issues, the BART connection is very easy (not quite as simple as SFO, but still pretty painless) and they have a Fenton's creamery in the concourse. Fenton's should be enough. It's where the old man and the kid got ice cream at the end of Up. Join the revolution.

    Mmmm, Fenton's.

    If you're going to SF, though, I'd just do SFO. It's much more convenient and yeah, even though they're pretty retarded and only have two runways and close one of them when it's foggy, I've flown in/out of there a LOT and have only been delayed maybe three times.

    Well, you asked "what are you gonna do about it?" I provided a viable Plan B. You're welcome to critique that alternative on its own merits, but whether you like the actual city or not is neither here nor there.
