The wife and I are looking to take a long needed vacation.  Something different.  Any ideas?

How much do you want to spend?
For how long are you planning to get away?
How far away would you like to go (in-state, somewhere in the US, elsewhere in North- and South America, another continent)
Are you planning on doing anything special during your vaction, like diving, or climbing or getting yourself edjumicated? Or are you content with getting away from work, including house work for a week or six?

Or, if you want to go somewhere warm...

try Florida - and visit KSC (NASA) while there.  I'd stay on Cocoa Beach or in Titusville.  I went there and it was one of the coolest things I've done.  I took the historical tour and went to the original mercury launch pad and block house.

EDIT:  Removed photos.  Not working for some reason.

Rent a cold water shack on the Gulfcoast in March near the marsh. It's too cold to swim, the mosquitoes will rape your dog and the gnats will carry off your supplies. The fishing will be great but the living conditions will be miserable. It will seem like you've been there a month in 3 days time and you will have a bunch of fish to show for it. The best of both worlds!

How about Disneyland, Uni Studios, the beach, sun, surf, in the Peoples' Republik of Southern Kalif. We've got rather warm temps at the moment 51F at 0850. Or you can go skiing in the mountains. Gray(out) Davis would thank you.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  It has over 100 golf courses.  And when it rains you can use them for a rifle range, (I think???).

we're really not the adventerous type.  but yet, we've been told that we should get out and have one heck of a vacation before we have kids.  we've done myrtle beach and most other east coast type vacations.  

liek i said we want something different and unusual.  thanks for the ideas so far.

Take a fly in fishing trip to Northern Ontario. There are lots of great lodges that are accessible only by float plane. The prices are more resonable than Alaska. Makokibatan Lodge on the Albany river has great fishing for Walleye (Pickeral) and Northern Pike.

Go to Florida Yacht charters and sales in Miami beach.  Do South Beach for a day or two and then make the downhill run to Key West in a nice 35 foot sailboat.
