Sorry about that, stupid me recommending Maine in mid April. I guess it would be a bit chilly.

Chances are that travel inside of Yellowstone and/or Yosemite could still be very limited in April due to snow.

Certainly agree with the Utah/ Arizona circle of sights suggested earlier, that is a whole lot of bank for the buck.

April is a great time to see the Southwest. The Grand Canyon, Sedona, The Apache Trail, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Kodachrome Basin State Park (Utah), Monument Valley, Canyonlands, and the Valley of the Gods are a few.

Many of these can be found on or near Utah Route-12, National Scenic Byway.

Hit the Grand Canyon, Arches, Bryce, Zion, Lake Powell, and Goblin Valley. All within a couple hundred miles, all worth a bit of hiking and a bit of photography.

The American Southwest is best visited in our early spring.
April is about perfect.
You won't regret it.

It's too early in the season to visit a lot of the other places mentioned.

Yep, I am planning to venture over your way. Around the middle of April. Where would be the best places to see. A bit of natural wonders and ( as a freind of mine just recently said) some un-natural wonders. I will have about two weeks and a moddest budget. Maryland and Wyoming are two already mentioned.
What would you recommend?

Without knowing your interests it's almost an impossible question to answer . You could literally go to any state and stay within 300 miles and be totally fascinated for two weeks . Make a list of what is important to you and your family . Have a wonderful time .

"modest budget" - means that you won't fly between states? - then you mean Maryland OR Wyoming.
Are you looking for cold climate or warm.

I can furnish enough info to keep you in Florida for a while and we have a lot more to see than Disneyworld and beaches.

I would visit Washington, DC and New York City if I only had two weeks. I would start with Washington, definitely. The National Gallery is a two day thing in itself. The Smithsonian.

You have plenty of natural beauty in Australia.

The standard Aussie route is to stay in the west - Disney Land, Grand Canyon, Utah National parks, Las Vegas. As others say, the NE won't be much fun till later in the spring and that's too bad. The topography of the American west is most like Australia (nothing like the Grand Canyon though). That of the American east is less like that of Australia. The Smokey Mountains would be a nice place to visit in late April or early May - think of the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, plus a little. From there you'd be able to visit some nice historical sights in Virginia - but again, the timing isn't great for that trip.

For two weeks - stay in the west, you have more than enough to see there

Good summing up. Midwest more like at times a very dry South Australia.Smokey Mountains are similar to the Blue Mountains, same Blue haze.

Notable by the vegetation, Northern Hemisphere "Light" and more European type weather.
See the usual suspects; Las Vegas; Grand Canyon , Disneyland etc in the that limited time frame you have. Try and see Yosemite as well You have to get in a US Park.
