Overseas Trips for Geography Levels 2 or 3 anyone got some new ideas?

Hi All,

I was wondering where other than Hawaii, Gold Coast, Tanzania, Amazon where do people take their Geography and possibly History students for a social sciences field trip? Our department are looking at taking students aboard but may need to encompass some history as well? I was thinking the U.S.A with Tourism 3.2, 3.3 or 3.6 standards any suggestions?  Cheer Steph.
