Why didn't you stay at Beaches? I know plenty of families that loved it with kids of all ages. My parents have owned land there since the 1970's and never brought my sister and me because they were big time divers, and we were teenagers that needed action. Hopefully, Provo will remain remote and pristine. After visiting the Bahamas 3 years ago, I thought it had plenty of action for teenagers. Check it out!

If I took my ungrateful kids to Provo and they were begging to go back to Chicago the entire time, I guarantee you that would be the last time I ever tried to take them someplace nice.

Had a fabulous stay in the TCI. Stayed at Point Grace, it was heavenly. The beach is spectacular, the staff friendly. We did not want to leave. There are a few places to go for entertainment, but that is clearly not why most people go this island, it is for the serenity, the beaches, the ability to do absolutely nothing. Your travel agent did not do you any favors by not explaining this. Sounds like they just wanted to book a trip!

Wake up call

It's time to wake up girl!! If you had done just a little research, you would of known that Provo was a quiet island. Like other posters have said, your travel agent either lied to you, or doesn't know his ass from his elbow. Face it, you blew it. All you had to do is spend a couple hours online during your "2 year" preparation time, and you would have all the info you needed to make an educated choice. But unfortunately you took the easy way out, and let someone else make the decision for you without doing any research at all. Look at the bright side, you learned a valuable lesson!!

And to the poster who took their kids on vacation to have them whine & bitch that they were bored, and wanted to go back to Chicago....I would of told those kids to go ahead and leave!!! Ungrateful little bastards!!

Why do the people who feel the need to bash and berate hide behind fake names and e-mail addresses? Is it because they are afraid to say what they have to say in their own "skin". Or is it because it's much easier to bash and berate when no one knows who you are? Kind of gutless if you ask me.

Simma down na! Simma down! Anyway, I've been reviewing this board for more than three years. While my research would tell me Turks is quiet, Allie's post is the first one that said there was absolutely NOTHING. Quiet could mean a bar or two, or maybe some evening entertainment at a few resorts. You can Research until you're blue in the face and not know everything until you actually experience it youself. Cut her some slack already. Geeezzz!

You know, the more I think about this, the stranger it becomes. Why would "kids" aged 22 and 25 have to be entertained? Good heavens, they are adults and should act like adults.

As to Linda, why I don't use MY real email address...check my in box for the 25-40 pieces of spam I get a day from people obtaining my real address from travel boards and 2) if you post your real address and someone doesn't like what you say you get hate email. I don't need that crap myself.

How do you like that email address Linda?

Just a few observations:

Linda, get over it, people will say what they want to say without a real name or email address. If you have to ask why, well, I won't even go there.

Allie, you obviously needed to do a bit more research BEFORE your trip. I'm sure you won't make the same mistake twice.

And last but not least, to Joan, If my kids acted like that, I'd have to wonder why. Sounds like they had no clue on how to appreciate anything. Could it be how they were brought up....a bit spoiled maybe?...Let's evaluate: Given a beautiful vacation, but they whined & bitched about being bored....Wake up....they were crying because they didn't get their way, which means one thing, and one thing only....spoiled little brats. I say too bad junior!!!

Good one Paul. Every time I say to my friends we are going to or have been to Provo, they always say "Utah?"
