We enjoy cruising. It's a good value for family trips. DH and I love the Turks & Caicos. We only get to do that for the "big" anniversaries though since I don't like to leave DD13 for more than a long weekend very often. Myrtle Beach is only 30 minutes from us so we go there often. We also go to Charleston for long weekends when we get the chance, it's just a 2 hour drive.

Our other vacation "go to" is Santa Fe, NM. The pace is laid back and we usually spend t least 1 day at the spa (Ten Thousand Waves). When we are looking for something different then we head to Europe. The last trip was to Belgium to watch Classic Cycling Road Races. It was awesome!

It is harder for DH to travel now, so I am glad that we did what we could when we could. We loved our many trips to Hawaii and about 10 different cruises to the Caribbean, Alaska and Europe. I loved every place in Canada that we have ever visited. The people and country there are absolutely wonderful. Lake Louise, Banff, Jasper Park, Halifax, Vancouver, Calgary and PEI were particular favorites. We adored our trips to Washington, DC. Ireland was amazing. When I was teaching full time we enjoyed spring breaks in New Orleans, San Diego, Tucson, Santa Fe and Albuquerque. It has been years since we visited San Francisco and Disneyland and I would love to return to both. We never got back for a longer stay in Seattle, but would enjoy that as well. Utah's parks were simply gorgeous (not sure why we don't see them advertised more in our area). We have done several trips to Mexico and found that not to be our cup of tea. We liked our short trips to Las Vegas but we are not big gamblers so we won't miss going back. Fun driving trips from our MN home included the Amana Colonies in Iowa; MT Rushmore/Badlands, SD; Galena, IL; Mackinac Island, MI; and several trips each summer/fall to Door County, WI. And we can't forget our regular MN trips "up North" "to the lake" (you have to speak Minnesotan to understand these phrases!)

This summer we did Beaches in Turks and Caicos. While Disney will always be our home away from home, we fell in love with the island! It was an amazing vacation.

We have been to Washington DC, Williamsburg and other parts of VA. We also enjoyed New York, Boston, LA and San Franscio as well baseball games in these cities. We have traveled up the Pacifc Coast Highway making plenty of stops along with way. We have been to AZ including the Grand Canyon as well as Palm Springs (I like heat). Plenty of places we still would like to try!

All Who Come To This Happy Place Welcome,

We love the Florida panhandle beaches. Have stayed in Destin and PCB, but just adore the area in between in South Walton County. It's upscale, yet quaint, and very laid back. Only high rises are the ones in Seagrove Beach that were grandfathered in. Lots of cottages, beach houses and low-rise condos. Cute little restaurants and shops, too. And if you want the crazy busy, touristy experience, Destin and PCB are a little more than a half hour drive. And there are several very different communities to choose from. We prefer Seagrove and Grayton Beaches with their old Florida beach town vibes, while others like the more ritzy planned communities of Seaside, Rosemary and Alys Beaches.

We own a few ski weeks right on the mountain at Park City, and my mom and DH, DS, and DNeph love to ski so that's our other family vacation.

If I were given the choice each year I'd alternate between DCL and horseback riding in Europe for our "other" vacation, but we only manage to fit those in 2-3 times a decade.

We have been vacation challenged since about 2001 because of physical and parental limitations, but are hoping to resume schedule with a WDW trip and another one on the bucket list every year. Last year was DC and a D23 event at WDW. This year was no WDW, but hopefully we can change that in 2013 and go twice.

We always love to go to Las Vegas and visit the parents in the South SF Bay Area. Future trips hope to include NOLA, Montreal, New Mexico, Grand Canyon (this time more than a stopover), Napa, Aulani, Kona, Hilo, and many other places we haven't actually put on the bucket list, but have talked about in the past.

OK....I love NJ more than DH does!

Someone else mentioned that the house they own causes the trips there to be "honey do" visits. I think that's what gets DH down, but our DSs are young men with families and they often pitch in and help with the upkeep chores!

Still, my heart SINGS as we approach Exit 0 on the Garden State Parkway & that drowns out DH's grumbling! (We bought the house 5 years after DH's job move caused us to move to Ohio. We bought it with my DSis, so, we own half. We bought it BEFORE the tech stocks fell in the late '90s. It is the best monetary investment we ever made, so, he doesn't grumble too too much!)

I hope you can get there again...if it's Cape May that you get to, let me know!

I live on long island so once the spring starts through end of fall I do not have to go anywhere besides disney for vacation. We are one of the places a lot of out of state people come for their vacations. even the stars come to the hamptons in the summer.

We have resorts that look exactly like the dvc resorts at disney.

I also live in a condo complex with an indoor and outdoor pool and tiki bar so I do not like to go to places on vaca that are just the same thing I can do at home.

Well, besides Disney, in the last few years we have gone to DC (Vet convention) San Diego twice(once with DD and family and once for Vet convention), Las Vegas (we used to live there so haunt some non traditional places), CO (son lives in Aurora) Wisconcin (to see friends), and AI in Mexico. In a couple weeks we'll take our first cruise and next April we'll go to NY for the first time. We have a casino in the mountains about an hour away so do mini get aways there off and on.

We go to Garden City (right outside of Myrtle Beach) every year. We live in SC, so it's only about a 5 hour drive.
