What is your favorite vacation spot?

I wanted to get everyones favorite spot and why.
I love Bermuda and Grand Cayman. Its close enough to me that I can enjoy a short flight and still have beautiful beaches, wonderful people, lots of activities, and great sightseeing!
What do you think my friends?

Almost any ski resort in the western US or Canada.

Great Barrier Reef.

I know it's a long flight from NYC, but worth every minute once you arrive.

Second favorite: Bangkok

Hummm.....let me think I live in California yet my sign on name has Utah in it! So even if you had to guess, you would be safe to say UTAH! is my favorite vacation place. I love the desert, the red rock canyons with their beautiful tapistry walls, buttes, mesas, petroglyphs and the 5 national parks. Utah is close enough that we can make it in a days drive.

Aspen Colorado is the favorite destination for my whole family. Skiing is great (runs and lifts never crowded, and wide runs at Snowmass), service industry on the mountain and in town is great, locals are genuinely nice, restaurant options in all price ranges are plentiful, great art, fur, and jewelry stores to see items not exactly available in my hometown, and people watching at Christmas time rocks.

Rome, definitely. I just love the city. The history, the culture, the people, the food, the atmosphere, sitting in piazzas drinking coffee or wine.... I could go on and on. I am getting ready to make my third trip there in less than two years, as I have become quite addicted.

In the US I would have to say anywhere in Colorado because I love hiking and the scenery is amazing.

So far,

it's Ireland. Beautiful, old, relatively unspoiled, gentle, great beaches (seriously), fresh Guinness--need I say more?

Um, Paris & just about any beach although I am partial to Holden Beach, NC, Amelia Island, FL. & Rincon, PR. If the criteria is times visited, it would go like this 1) Holden Beach (50-60X), 2) New Orleans (15X), 3) Amelia Island (10X) & 4) Key West & Germany (5-6X) .

Hi,
I have to agree with you dgib...
I haven't been to Bermuda in over 20 years..but it was like a paradise back then...one of my favorite places!
I was wondering if it has changed much
over the years?
Thanks,
Auty1

I don't have a favorite yet because I still have too many places to see. Out of those I've been to, however, I would have to choose Venice, Italy. It is just so unique, magical and relaxing.

Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island Canada. Red cliffs overlooking huge red sand beach.
Yearly visit to beautiful cottage that has view of ocean, large open fields for son and doggie to romp, and lobster suppers to die for.
Pure relaxation.

I love lots of places around the world, but so far -- Hawaii (all the islands). There's just something about the atmosphere, the scenery, the scent in the air -- we're going back in July!

And all this time I thought you were from Utah, Utahtea . . . you just never know, huh?! Now, what's the "tea" stand for?

Favorite vacation locale: Wow, I'm more like girlonthego, and hope I can continue to travel the world, and especially this country, many more years in search of it!

Agree with Utahtea. Been many places but Utah is magical. I like going many miles without seeing a billboard and being able to view scenery that has been virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. You can travel all around or stay in one place for a week and still not explore all the trails.

I fell in love with Mexcio a few years ago. Cancun & the Riviera Maya are tops for me, but Puerto Vallarta's great, too.

My favorite vacation spot is the one where I can relax with Mr.GoTravel!

One of my all time favorite vacations was a unscheduled open ended drive from South Beach to Jacksonville via A1A. We took our time (a little over 2 weeks) and just stopped and hung out where we wanted to.

We packed the cooler and the beach chairs in back of the expedition and just stopped whenever we felt like stopping and spent as much time as we wanted to doing whatever.

I'd give anything to do it all over again. Just me and him.
