My husband and I have recently (1 week for me) retired and want to travel all over the US. We have limited our travels to GA and FL in the past due to time constraints. GA is our home base and I am very overwhelmed about where to go first. I would like to start with a 2-3 week trip. We pull a 30' travel trailer. Any suggestions?

To learn about US:
Tour Days 1 & 2: Dearborn MI for Henry Ford Museum. Tour 2 days. Tells the story of industrial development of US, risk capitalism and research, that sets us apart.
Day 3: Beckley WV for the Exhibition Coal Mine, museum and village. Tells the story of the fuel of the industrial revolution and the underpinnings of the beginning of the labor movement. 1/2 day at mine, the other half in New River Gorge (National Park visitor center)
Day 4: Kearney NE Archway Museum 1/2 day. Tells story of development of our country. 1/2 day driving Platte River basin, the trails route and the plains allowing our nation to feed ourselves.
Day 5: Independence MO for the National Trails Museum and the Harry Truman Library, 1/2 day each.
Day 6: Cody WY for Buffalo Bill museum 1/2 day, then 1/2 day to Yellowstone via Chief Joseph Highway for the view.
Day 7: Philadelphia for Independence and Constitution Hall and to watch foreigners stand tall for their photo with the Liberty Bell.

I'd build trips around those essentials, picking up along the way
Fulton MO: W. Churchill gave "Iron Curtain" speak in 1946, 1183 Church of St. Mary, W. Churchill museum and 32 feet of the Berlin wall erected.

Jamestown, VA: English IPO raised money to send men to send back lumber and other stores.

and more.

Travel days are between touring days.

There are others, and this list will get debated, but the point is to pick something from above and head for it. Before you leave research your route and see what is along the way and what can be strung together.
