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 [B]rehoboth beach[/B] 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!!

My summer plans have not gone so well. First the cruise I won was cancealed by my company because they thought it might not look good (remember the AIG stuff). Now next week me and 15 other guys are heading to Myrtle Beach to golf and the fire has damaged two of the courses we were going to play. I also hear that the fire is getting worse so who knows if we will even go. The good news is my sister has 8 weeks at this place in Nags Head and she offered us one of the weeks they cannot use. Its only about 1 1/2 hours from my house and it is right on the beach. The master bedroom is on the third floor and you wake up looking out over the ocean.

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.

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.

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.

Nothing better then a place right on the beach. Its like you don't even go out to have some fun as its right in the back yard. I'm lucky and we got a place right on the beach for free and we live within 1 1/2 hours from Nags Head so we are going to invite a few friends down for a night or two. My parent own a place around the 8 1/2 mile marker but its not on the beach but we will be going there for several weekends this summer.

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.

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.
