What is the Perfect Vacation?

The Las Vegas thread made me think about this. My best vacation so far has been a train ride across the US, stopping at the Grand Canyon, Disneyland-for several days, and a quick tour of San Francisco-a beautiful city!

We came back the northern route, so we saw much of the country. (I saw more, because I was awake for four days--couldn't sleep on the train!) During the trip back across the Rockies, the scenery was unbelievable, and the Southwest was something out of a western movie. Wonderful. The Grand Canyon is beyond description--unbelievable, awe-inspiring, immense. There are no adequate words.

If I could pick an ideal vacation now, and could afford it, I'd go by way of the Queen Mary ll to the British Isles. I'd take a side trip to Rome, too! Where would you go? What's your best vacation so far?

I think the best vacation I've had was one I went on when I was ten. My parents took my brothers and sisters and me to Washington, D.C. for one week and then to Orlando for another week and then drove down the keys for a third week. We got to visit the Smithsonian museums, go to Disneyworld, Seaworld, go snorkeling in the Gulf of Mexico...it was awesome!

I think my ideal vacation now would be to visit my good friend in Ireland and meet her new husband.

I really enjoyed my holiday in Kefalonia last summer. That was the first time I'd been to Greece - but I don't think it'll be my last! The island has some really unusual natural features, like an underground saltwater lake. The lake was inside a cave, but the cave ceiling had partly collapsed in a earthquake in the 1950s, leaving a hole through which the sunlight shone. It was beautiful. I also saw some of the locations where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed.
In the future I'd love to visit Venice. And I've always wanted to spend a Christmas in New York.

I have never been outside the UK ))) My dream trip would be to NYC or LA, however upon travelling up to the north of scotland on the train you pass throught the most amazing countryside ever, when the train gets to the top of the hills, you can see the cloud covering the hills, once we saw a stag standing not 10 feet from the railway as proud as can be it was a magnificent sight

I like vacations that feature breathtaking scenary.

My favorite city to vacation in is Boston... if I get stuck living in a big city someday, I hope it's there. Everything about it was great; the history, the sports fans, the "big dig", the ocean...

This sounds funny, but the farthest west I've ever been is Chicago. (maybe 200 miles southwest of me...) I've covered the Eastern half of the country pretty thoroughly. I've been as far northeast as New Hampshire and as far south as Atlanta.

My two favorite vacations were when I climbed Mt. Washington in New Hampshire and when we stayed at a mountain chalet just outside of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Nine times out of ten, the best vacation to me is to spend some time at our cottage in northern Michigan. It's a two minute walk from Lake Michigan, a four minute walk from a small fishing lake, 20 golf courses within 30 miles, lots of old roads to beat up your car on... to me, that is paradise. Our cottage is down this hill somewhere in the trees in this picture

Sorry to go on and on about it... but right now I have the winter time blues.
