Subject: Toronto to Myrtle Beach
Hi Lucy,

You've got to go to Williamsburg, Virginia. Plan on at least a day there. Eat lunch or dinner in the Williamsburg Inn. Dress for dinner, tourist clothes for lunch.

Vince and Gerry have recommended some great stops. Washington is not a short stop, it will take several days to do it justice. The National Gallery of Art will take at least a day (The best part: it's free, as are all of the museums of the Mall.) I. M. Pei's modern addition to the National Gallery is a wonderful work of architecture. I have not seen it, but I've heard that the new Native American museum is excellent. All of the Smithsonian buiildings house great and interesting treasures. And don't forget the Holocaust museum, simply stunning.

In Virginia there is also Mt. Vernon, George Washington's home. Restaurants there have a peanut soup that is tasty. That should appeal to you. Near Mt. Vernon is a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that is interesting. I also second a visit to Monticello.

In Myrtle Beach is Brookgreen Gardens, several acres filled with sculpture. If you are there in a month with an "R" in it, partake in a decadent oyster roast orgy served at several restaurants near Myrtle Beach. I think the locations are in Murrell's Inlet.

Hope you have a few months for your trip.
