HELP!! PLANNING A TRIP FOR PARENTS...

Jump to last reply

My siblings and I are planning a extended weekend get-away for my parents.. They are in their 70's and are healthy and active. Problems lies is my mom won't fly and they don't want to drive to far - we live in Jacksonville, FL .. Max 6-7 hour drive..

Second issue is... My mom likes historical places, antiques and shopping in general. (and she won't do anything alone)

My dad wants to do some fishing (fresh water) (my mom will not go fishing) , he likes food shops.. like Trader Joe's.. or any type of country store, cheese, deli, pastries ect...

Does anyone have any ideas on where we can send them... that we can meet in the middle with these two... We just want to plan a nice trip that they will both enjoy..

Also include places to stay.. Very nice.. (this is for their 55 year anniversary) but not overly priced.. (better than and days inn or holiday inn) maybe a B&B or lodge..

Please HELP we need to get this planned quickly!!!!!
