go to the Texas gulf coast...atleast its in the US...or go to the Virgin Islands if you want to fly for a few.... It all depends on your budget... if money was really no object and I had visited the beautiful sites of the US...I would go to CYPRUS

i have thought about the Texas coast because it is close but an island sounds nice thats a nice view there MrWilson

anyone else been to the gulf area or the islands?

No place but the Keys![banana]

Sounds like you're looking for a beach-type vacation. So I won't suggest Colorado. [:D] My brother and sister-in-law go to Mexico (coastal resorts) every couple of years and love it. They say it's a great value.

Yeah, I'd like to know more about that deal too. Is that $900/person? Is this some kinda deal special to you?

Im thinking of going to the Philippines, I always wanted to visit the PI, maybe meet a nice Filipina [:)]
Link Posted: 5/27/2003 11:48:49 AM EDT
It is $900 per person, It is through [url]www.suntrips.com[/url] But you have to call them to get rates 1-800-SUNTRIPS I paid $800 for the same deal last year. Im not sure where all they are located but I fly out of DIA, which means I have to drive to Denver.

I went to Thailand for 2 weeks over Christmas. It was unbelievable, I spent about $2000 including airfare. But the flights are horribly long. It is worth it though. Although with SARS going around over in that area it might not be the best choice. We were in Bangkok for 5 nights then Phucket for three and Phi Phi island for 4 nights (we went to Mya bay, where they filmed "The Beach") and then Bankok for 3 more nights.

Costa Rica. Buy a machette and learn to open coconuts. Eat weird fruits and food. Pretend your rich, highly educated and very tall (to them you are). See wierd orange squirrels, sloths and other weird amimals in the weird jungles. Meet a hot local babe and marry her. I did (all of the above).

The place I stay is 15 minutes from downtown, on the beach, seafood resturant next door, and fishing pier.

Charleston is one of my favorite cities, right up there with Savannah, and maybe even above because there's more to do. If I could live there I really would. I have only been there once, and really would like to go back sometime.

No where. Those sort of places are way too expensive. The only vacations I've really taken in about 10 years is a drive for the day through the mountains.z

When I go on vacation, I don't want to see anybody. One of those big resorts would drive me nuts. I go to the south end of Elbow Key in the Abacos.

Like TJ my wife and I LOVE Charleston, SC. Been 4X in 5years of marriage--about to make it a 5th time--2 MORE WEEKS!!!! Even though it takes TJ longer--you really can be on the beach in just over 5 1/2 hrs.

Cozumel, no doubt, superdav!!!! I'm a SCUBA diver so that's heaven for me, and don't forget it's just a half and hour boat ride from Cancun. [naughty]
Link Posted: 5/28/2003 12:45:02 PM EDT
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is a nice place to vacation. (in winter) Hotter than hell in the summer and it rains every afternoon (but the rates are good) :) Better than Cancun, IMHO. Old town, old families, not a bunch of transient workers. Water is drinkable, food is great, just a better atmosphere. Alaska is a great also.
Link Posted: 5/28/2003 12:54:19 PM EDT
Charleston, SC. I stay on Isle of palms for a week each summer. Goto the beach, go downtown to eat and drink. It is laid back. The people are friendly! I was stationed in Hawaii for 5 years. It was nice and warm, but I got tired of it. If you decide to go to Hawaii, IM me and I'll give you the lowdown on what to check out. mjp

That place is cool! we drove past it on our way to Playa del Carmen from Cancun. Lokks beautiful. Just remember, that's all you will pay if you don't leave the resort, but if you do leave, it's easy to spend money fast.

I had a great time in Cozumel and want to go back. I'd recommend it. No "Big city nightlife" though...but that was the LAST thing I was looking for.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 1:00:06 AM EDT
I can't even remember the last time I went on vacation. It was a long time ago, maybe 10 years or more. I can't afford it. I would love to go to Greece, though, or Italy.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 1:49:15 AM EDT
Since you mentioned Cozumel I will say I had a great time there. Cancun, too touristy & Spring Breakish for me. Cozumel was perfect, touristy on the main drive and nice just a few blocks away. Expensive & cheap hotels, great diving. I had a great time. Isla De Mujeres is really laid back, a 20 minute boat ride from Cancun. If you are on the cheap there is a Hostel there under $10 a night. BTW, Cozumel is 40 miles south of Cancun & a 30 minute boat ride. Well worth the trip though. If you dive, it's the place to go.
