What U.S. destination can I be the most green as a visitor, i.e. green hotel, green transport, etc.?

    You could look at all of these things separately, but really you just want to shoot for an all-around green city. Popular Science has a list of the top 50, and Portland, Oregon is at the top. “Half its power comes from renewable sources, a quarter of the workforce commutes by bike, carpool or public transportation, and it has 35 buildings certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.” Best of all, as a visitor you can stay at a variety of eco-friendly hotels like the Heathman Hotel.

    Browse through the list (the first link) to see the greenest cities. Then from that search the web for green hotels in a city of your choosing. Try to pick a city with a high transportation rating though, because that one applies most to you as a visitor.

    Another great US city that is green is Austin, TX. They have bikes lanes throughout the city (you can rent bikes at local bike shops), buses run all day and night. The farmer’s market is open on Wednesday and Saturdays. Austin also has many outdoor recreation (swimming holes, national and local parks), within walking distance of green hotels, such as Habitat Suites. And you won’t fall short of finding local businesses, shops, beers and music!
