Is there a monastery nearby perhaps? You could stay a weekend, or even request to stay a week. Nothing says fun like a week of long services, doing dishes, and shoveling snow!  Grin  One other thing that comes to mind is Holy Virgin Cathedral in San Francisco, where the body/relics of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco are.

You could always go to Kodiak Island, Alaska and see where Orthodoxy first came to America Wink

Or St. Anthony in Arizona to experience Mt Athos here in America and meet Elder Ephram. You can go to confession with him and he'll tell you what you need to confess about because he already knows before you even say it! Or you can have a conversation with him in Greek when you don't even know Greek. Seriously, some of the miracles God gives him are amazing.

Alaska, where Orthodoxy in the Americas started would be a nice starting point. There are many churches and pilgrimage sites there.

There are quiet a few monasteries here in the lower 48 also such as: St. Antony's Monastery in Florence, Arizona its like an American Mt. Athos; St. Antony's Coptic Monastery in Newberry Springs, CA; Holy Trinity Russian Monastery in Jordanville, New York; St. Pasius Serbian Women's Monastery at Mount Graham in Safford, Arizona; St. Herman of Alaska Monastery in Platina, CA; St. Thekla's Womens Monastery on the Antiochian Village campus in Bolivar, Pennsylvania. These are just a few of the most visited pilgrimage sites in the US.
