Need Ideas for Summer Vacation !!

Jump to last reply

Well, I am just stuck! I am the vacation planner for the family and I am just not feeling it this year. We love traveling but I can't seem to figure where to go this year. We could go to California again because we do have relatives there but I am just not feeling excited about it. I want to make it special because my kids are getting older and this will probably be one of the last family vacations. I thought about overseas but I haven't gotten my daughters passport renewed. So I am stuck on where to go. Please help!

Who we are: : family of 4 living in Iowa, my son is junior in college, my daughter starts college in the fall. We are looking at the first couple of weeks in August.

What we like to do: enjoy hiking (most of us), zoos, historical places, museums, scenery, fun things to do, experiencing new places and new foods. Mainly we are people who like to do stuff and not just sit around.

Where we have been: ok, so this just a brief list of where the family has gone before
California - Los Angeles, San Fran, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Kings Canyon, Catalina Island, San Diego
Portland , Washington DC, Seattle, Chicago, Twin Cities, Nashville, Denver, Boston, Salem, New York City (last year), Philadelphia, Maine, Quebec, Gettysburg, Alaska, Hawaii, Cinncinatti, Michigan, Mackinaw Island, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and St Louis.
Also we have been to the Southwest but it is really too hot in the summer - same thing for Florida.
We did a national park tour a few years ago including Yellowstone, Mesa Verde, Arches, Bryce, and Zion so my daughter has requested that we not go there. She is one who only likes to hike a little.
My husband and I are going to Colorado in October so not there.

So I am open for ideas!! Anyone???
Thanks so much for any help!
