As our once-confined cousins seek to escape the surly bonds of gloomy Britishland, and are welcomed back (in a fashion) by President Braindead, they are advised as to where best to spend their sterling in these here United States:
All set for America! Holidays to the U.S. are back — and there’s something for everyone. Take your pick from these top trips across the pond
And the #1 recommendation?
New York City. In the very same edition, mind you, there appeared the following article with the headline:
Other stupid recommendations are San Francisco (!), Chicago (!), New Orleans and Las Vegas. (For my Brit Readers, a quick summary: San Francisco is worse than NYC, Chicago is Murder City, New Orleans is trying to catch up to Chicago, and Las Vegas… oy. The only reason to go to Vegas would be to do some excellent shooting on Vegas’s many fine ranges, but you can do that pretty much anywhere.)
Other Daily Mail recommendations are scenic tours (e.g. Grand Canyon and the Pacific Coast Highway), and those are indeed okay, if you’re into that kind of thing. (If doing the PCH, however, avoid San Francisco and Los Angeles like the plague spots they are.)
So, to all my Brit Readers: if you do want to escape Britishland over the dreary late autumn and early winter this year, let my Murkin Readers give you their recommendations in Comments.
Better still, wait until April / May next year, when you could enjoy an actual spring and attend things like Boomershoot. But that can wait for another time.
