6 weeks to do the USA & Canada. Any recommendations?

FDH & I are extremely fortunate to be able to take 6 weeks off for our honeymoon. We haven't travelled outside of our home state for over two years as we've been saving time/money to take off four our honeymoon (We have taken a week off to visit friends in Melbourne, but that was a cheap easy holiday). We live in Australia and have previously explored our country (him by van, me by boat) when we were younger so we're going abroad to the USA & Canada! We're thinking any time from Sept – Nov 2020.

Our day planner is currently looking like this (we have more days to add in where needed, we just wanted to see if we could fit the basics in with room to spare- we can).

Have you any suggestions on what we can add to see or do while we're in the USA or Canada? We're pretty adventurous people who also looove food & beer/wine. We're hoping for a 70/30 mix of activities / relaxation. Long driving is no issue for us as we drive 3hrs often within our home state.
