Ending of an era

As a kid I was very excited about the shuttle program. It has brought much joy (the Hubble repair) and obviously much sadness as well. Now that there are only three shuttle missions remaining, I wonder what comes next. Since Orion and Ares are now cancelled/scaled back, I wonder there will be, in our lifetime at least, any additional significant American activity in space?
