Where to go this summer that can still be booked.

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I am the family trip planner and I am not feeling inspired for this summer. I'm hoping you will give me some ideas of where to start.

DH and I are in our sixties and in good health. We are looking for someplace to go this summer -July or beginning of August. We usually take a couple weeks, but are flexible on length of time. However we must go in summer due to job constraints. We are flying from Washington, DC.

Here are some of our interests

wildlife
scenery
culture
good food
beaches
historical sites

Here are some things we are not interested in

shopping
art museums
going somewhere you have to be dressed up

Here are the places we have gone in the last five years. Really enjoyed all of them except the Caribbean cruise which was just OK. First time on a large cruise ship and its just not our thing.

Caribbean cruise
Spain - Madrid, Seville and Zaragosa
Galapagos Islands
Iceland
Belgium, Alsace and Paris
Uganda with stopover in Amsterdam
Playa del Carmen, Mexico

In the past we have been to the following places in Canada - Montreal, Toronto, Churchill (polar bears) and Prince Edward Island.

So, what do you suggest? We would prefer someplace we haven't been yet. And remember, it must be someplace that isn't booked up months in advance.

Thanks for your help.
