Your go to vacation spots
 
My wife and I are getting ready to book some vacations for the upcoming year. What are some of your go to vacation spots? You know... those places you love to go back to over and over.

Ours are Clearwater Fl., planning a trip there in April... nothing like relaxing on the beach with a drink in hand and it's a quick 2 1/2 hour non-stop flight for us.

New Orleans, planning to go again in May... for anyone who loves food, drink and music, hard to beat the Big Easy.

Chicago, big city but it has a small city feel. Great food and lot's to do.

NYC, what can I say, 2 hour train ride from where we live, always a great time in the big apple.

Let's hear some of yours.

Gulf Shores, Alabama. My parents own a condo down there (thanks 90's bull market) so during the Winter Months when it's not booked up with rentals I at least have to think about going down there. Lots of great memories.

Florida Gulf Coast. My grandparents lived in Venice, FL for many years, so I went down several times to visit. 20 miles south of Sarasota, an hour south of Tampa, an hour north of Fort Myers. The beaches are great down there.

On our honeymoon, my wife and I did a roadtrip to Key West via Williamsburg, Charleston and Savannah. All of those places make great vacation places. Williamsburg has this historic areas, Busch Gardens and is near Virginia Beach. Charleston has a lot of history, great food. Savannah as well. Key West is just awesome, and I've been trying to get back there ever since I went 8 short year ago.

Delmarva Beaches (Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, Fenwick, Ocean City). I'm a beach bum (if you couldn't tell from my vacation spots), so this being 3 hours from home and having access to my parents' place there makes it my biggest go-to. Crabbing, fishing, boating, beaching, shopping, eating. Lots to do.

Its hard to beat a trip to Vegas.

It's funny reading all of these comments about how people love to go to the beach. I now realize I actually hate going down to the beach but love looking at it out a window. Then again as mentioned before most of the time I've gone it's been in the winter.

Miami and Lake Tahoe.
Edit: crandon park beach - miles of white sand and warm water. Sandbars that go on forever. Really beautiful beach.

The Outer Banks NC - specifically Hatteras Island - its relaxing beach without all the tourists. 3 hours from where I live. My favorite image in the world is climbing over the a massive sand dune to the beach round 10 at night with a beer buzz, seeing a massive moon over the ocean and looking down the beach and seeing the flickering bonfires dot the coast.

NYC - my sister lives in the upper east side and ive been going up since college, probably been bout 10 ten times. I like the overwhelming sense of how small you feel in such a spot. People watching fans have to go period. Nothing beats a concert a MSG or a game at Yankee stadium or a walk around Central Park on a Sunday.

Fort Myers Beach Florida is our special spot.
And we just love this hotel. You cant beat a Tiki bar right on the beach.

Oh to not have kids, I LOVE my kids but at times I get jealous of the freedom some folks have without them.

I will live through you!

We generally go to DE Beach's but thsi year we are doing Nag's head. The drive could be killer with a 5 year old and 2 year old. Vacations with small kids though fun is a LOT of work.
