My aunt and I are trying to plan a "extended" family vacation between her family and ours.
For my senior spring break, we all celebrated by going to Waikiki Beach in Hawaii. It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Most amazing trip ever. We were spoiled by all the close attractions, the beach, cleanliness, everything was within walking distance...and I mean, close walking distance. It was phenomenal.
2 years ago, we went to Florida and didn't go to the greatest part. We were stuck on "hotel roe" and it was only beach and hotel, hotel hotel, condo, hotel, motel, hotel, condo, condo etc. The closest restaurant was over a mile away. We had to take a trolley if we wanted to go anywhere and it was a pain and took forever to get to our destination! It just wasn't what we were anticipating.
Don't get me wrong, it was nice, but not quite what we wanted.
For our 2013 trip, we have thought about a few different things.
- Atlantis, which was quickly crossed off the list because of the outrageous price!
- Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
- Las Vegas, Nevada (although I'd be broke before I even arrived, casino's take advantage of me, lol)
We are trying to find something that will keep the "men" entertained. They like to walk around and check things out. Go to the bar and drink. While the women lie on the beach or hang out by the pool and work on a nice tan. We like attractions within walking distance, especially if we are going to be drinking. Shopping. Pleasant Weather. And the right price.
Do any of you have any vacation ideas for us? Something that you've done that was really great?
I'd honestly just go back to Hawaii but that's saved for when I graduate Nursing school and/or when my aunt's son graduates high school.
We are open to pretty much everything. Except, we'd like to stay in the US. US territories are okay. My dad would prefer to support the US economy since we live here.
