These are a few of my favorite vacation spotsDisney World - I don't care how old I am, I will always want to go to Disney World whenever given the chance. Yes it is CRAZY expensive (which is why we probably won't be going back until we have kids) but it's so much fun! And it's always changing, so there's always new things to see. I definitely prefer it during the "off" season because it's not as crowded and hot.
Savannah - I love all the natural beauty and history of Savannah. It's full of good food, fun people to watch, and Southern hospitality. You can spend your days doing absolutely nothing at all and have a blast doing it! It's also close enough to lots of little island communities that day trips are the perfect mini-adventure.
Gulf Shores/Orange Beach - Even as pale as I am, I love going to the beach. I love watching the birds and the waves and eating yummy food. Again, a great place to do nothing. (Do you see a recurring theme in my vacations?)
Washington, DC - Yes, I'm a dork. I love DC. I love the museums and the history. I especially love Arlington. As strange as it sounds I could spend all day wandering around the cemetery. It's a place that can be full of people and still be peaceful. It's lovely. Plus, it's super cheap (if not free) to do just about everything. And the public transportation is quite good.
Discovery Cove - This is probably the ideal vacation for me and Jeff right now. We really enjoyed it the first time, but last time with the private cabana just put it over the top. I finally understand why people would go and NOT swim with the dolphins. It is fun, don't get me wrong. I loved doing it and would probably love to do it again, but once you've done it you can go and enjoy everything without having to plan your whole day around your swim time. And even if you don't swim with the dolphins you get all the perks of the park and your week pass to Sea World (which translates to a FANTASTIC deal on theme park tickets when it's all said and done!) Even when it's packed to capacity, you'd never know it. FABULOUS!
Cruising - I really didn't know what I would think of going on a cruise, but I ended up loving it. It's a good thing I do because Jeff's family also loves it. I've only ever been to Mexico, and it was nice. But I would really love to go other places. I don't really care where we go if I've never been because I know that no matter what I really won't have to worry about language, I know exactly where I'll be staying, and know there will be plenty of food that I'll eat! And although there is plenty for you to do, it's the perfect place to again, do nothing! My favorite is the days at sea when I can find a big window (because it's quieter inside than on the big decks up top) and curl up with a book and watch the ocean.
I absolutely love going new places. I want to visit all 50 states at some point (preferably before I'm 50, but we'll see how that works out!) So where are some of your favorite places to get away?
