Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

Didnt see a summer vacation thread, with the nice weather coming in I know alot of us will be taking weekend getaways so I figured I'd start a thread where you can post where your going then write a review afterwards telling us the good, bad and ugly of the places you went.

Me and my girl are going to rehoboth beach this weekend (too old to fight the drunk 18 yr olds in ocean city). Staying at this place that looks like a dump called Summerplace but $75 for a condo on the beach is to sweet to pass up considering any other place I found was $200.

If anyone has been to rehoboth, stayed at summerplace or can recommend a good bar to watch the first few hours of the draft it would be much appreciated. Also are there any good spots to throw a line in the water from a pier or dock?

go skins!!

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

I'm going to New Orleans next month, got plenty of shows lined up for the summer that I'm really pumped about. Seeing Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Dave Matthews, 311, and Eddie Vedder. Got the usual summer parties lined up too. Gonna be a busy summer.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

I am exicited about this summer as well. Last year we had a new born so must of the summer was sleepless nights and attending to a baby who could not go outdoors.

I hope to get a trip into the OC and maybe some other extend weekend trips. I liked to do some camping but maybe not until next year.

I am just happy to be out of the worst months of the year, Jan to April.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

In 2 months I'm going to the Outer Banks with a bunch of friends. We got one of those huge house on the beach for a week. Lots of grilling, lots of frozen drinks and cold beer, good times all around. I'm really looking forward to it because I really didn't take a vacation last year.

Then in late August my parents rented a place in OC for a week, so I'll probably spend a long weekend down there. Should be a relaxing time with the family.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

I'll be splitting my time equally between Manassas, Newport, Rhode Island, and Bar Harbour, Maine. Spiggy and Doo-doo are supposed to come down for a couple of weeks in July, but I have made them promise to stay off of the brown liquor (this mainly applies to Doo-doo but you all know how I hate to single people out). In August, 70Chip III will arrive for his annual de-campment and I hope to have all properties cleared of hangers on and leaches by that time. Father and son will then be free to pass the time playing violent video games, watching South Park and eating ice-cream "straight out the box, fool". The boy will clear out just in time for my annual 100,000 mile Labor-Day check in at the Hazeldon Clinic in Minnesota. So, the usual for me.

I grew up in Newport and my folks still have a condo there off Bellevue. We hope to go there for an extended weekend as well.

Nothing like walking/crawling the bars of Thames St. on a summer night. I love to eat at the Brick Alley Pub as well.

It's going to be highway robbery with the exchange rate for sure. Honestly though, go to a bar round Seattle area and you'll find yourself paying $5 for a pint.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

I rented a gulf front home just south of Tampa for a week next month and also an ocean front house in Nags Head for Labor day week. The interesting thing about the FL trip is that we're gonna hop on a train in Lorton that will take us and the car down to FL. Called the Auto Train. We were gonna fly, but my parents, who we're taking, liked the idea of the train. So we're going to try it.

The OBX house is one of those monster houses. My wife and I rent it and invite all of our family and friends (don't tell Daseal) each year. People come and go all week and it is just a great time.

A perfect opportunity to turn the table on our English cousins by inviting yourself to the summer home of one of the wedding guests and then staying for an indeterminate period of time. When they start to drop hints that you may be wearing out your welcome, pretend as though you don't hear them. As far as I can tell, this is the English strategy when visiting America.

Never heard of Summerplace, but it looks like it's in the quiet part of town.

Eats: My favorite place down there is called El Dorado. Their main attraction is their fish tacos (Guy who owns is used to have a baja taco stand in Mexico for years). Their burritos are good, as well as their guac. Fish tacos may sound weird, but these are the best.

Subs, I like Louie's Pizza, 4 doors down from the boards on Rehoboth Avenue.

If crabs are your interest, my family's go-to place is Lazy Susan's, Route 1 North near the turn off for the Cape May Ferry.

For casual to a little upscale, there is Fins Raw Bar. They have 6 different types of oysters daily, shucked right at in front of you at the bar. The Cultured Pearl is right down the street from them, and has great Japanese food and sushi. Dogfish Head Brewpub has awesome beers (I recommend the 90 Minute IPA) and food.

As far as places to watch the draft, there is Fins, Dogfish Head, Grotto Pizza (both boardwalk locations have separate bars), and Hooters.

Have a blast.
