Hi All, I'm heading over to the US and Canada at the end of this year, 26th Dec till 12th Jan. Yes we realise it's going to be cold! that's why we are going, to change it up from the usual Queensland weather. It'll be myself (20), brother (15) and mother (unnecessary) I've got all the hotels and flights sorted, just after a few things to do. I've got a pretty good idea, but opening it up to the locals. Interests in music, sporting & shopping, not so much galleries/museums . I'm after any recommendations i.e restaurants, must sees and do's etc. I haven't been to any of these cities apart from LA/Santa Monica. Seattle Calgary Montreal Ottawa Chicago LA/Santa Monica (Staying in SM) Thanks, much appreciated.
