me and my friend are thinking abut traveling to the us east coast around feb
2005

We will proberly get a eastern rail pass and travel around for about 3
weeks.

Where looking for recommendations on where to go?

New York and Florida are the main 2 we want to see. I also thought about
going to Dallas but im sure theres someone out there whos been to the US and
has some good places for us to visit. We want places with plenty to do
during the day. is there any good National PArks ?


Dallas is not on the east coast. Without knowing the slightest thing
about your interests and why you want to visit the east coast, I do
not have any recommendations for you. February IS not the best time
to visit National Parks, except maybe in Florida, but Florida isn't
known for its national parks.

---------------
This touches a nerve...
In 1929, a committee investigating the possibility of creating this
Park reported to Congress:
We are compelled to admit that in a good deal of the Everglades
region, especially in those parts now readily accessible by road,
the quality of the scenery is to the casual observer under most
conditions somewhat confused and monotonous. Its beauty in
the large is akin to that of the other great plain: Perhaps rather
subtle for the average observer in search of the spectacular;
though sometimes very grand, especially when seen in solitude
and at rest instead of from a hurrying automobile...

The Park was created in 1947. It is the only subtropical preserve in
North America. It contains sawgrass prairies, mangrove and cypress
swamps, pinelands, and hardwood hammocks, as well as marine and
estuarine environments. The park is known for its rich bird life,
particularly large wading birds, such as the roseate spoonbill, wood
stork, great blue heron and a variety of egrets. -- NPS.

BTW, there is a sister park, almost next door: Biscayne NP, which
was created as a National Monument in 1968, which primarily includes
the Bay and several of small islands (keys). [R]
