Here's where we went:
  1. Nashville, to see Regina Spektor at the Ryman Auditorium

  3. to see Frank Lloyd Wright's house Falling Water, which is about an hour outside of Pittsburgh
  4. Niagara Falls
  5. Bennington, VT, because we've been to all the northeastern states except Vermont
  6. Atlantic City, NY, because why not see the Atlantic Ocean, as long as we're over there
  7. Charlottesville, VA, to see Monticello
  8. Greenville, SC, to see Laura Caroline
