Lately, it's been Las Vegas, but I'm kinda burnt out on that city. I party WAY too much when I'm there. I went on a cruise through the US Virgin islands this last february and that was really nice. I also partied a little too much to remember that vacation. I see a pattern.

My parents own a home just south of Oconto, WI (Little Suamico). No traffic, no people, no lights, private road, surrounded by state park, lot's of land, and it's right on the water. Even the drive to get there is easy from N. IL. Can't beat it. Av.

White Mountains, New Hampshire Edited to add - Worst place?? Cancun, Mexico. Raging sunburn, even UNDER the grass roof hut and Montezumas revenge, I seriously thought I was gonna die there in a Mexican hotel room. My lifeless corpse cast adrift in the ocean, and eaten by the sea crabs. Add to that a bunch of drunk, ugly Americans, and I can honestly say I already been to hell.

It's been eight long years since I've had a vacation, so I'd have to honestly say my favorite spot would be [i]anywhere[/i] quiet with a nice view.z

Obviously, there are Scandinavian women on vacation, then - because French women are scary creatures. [:D]

I'd say that a half dozen of us, with an early morning HALO insertion, and another half dozen storming the beach in zodiacs, could take the place by force, with minimum collateral damage. You'd only have to let the rest of us have the place for two week out of the year a piece. let's see - eleven other guys is 22 weeks. Yeah - you'd get the place to yourself for more than half the year. Whadda ya say???? [}:D] 'Course, you may wanna watch out for SOME of these guys - I get the sense some of them are pretty wild partiers. [;)]

Or, we could just take up a collection and buy it without resorting to force. With the amount of equipment you were talking about, I think we could use that money to obtain the equipment to buy the place. How about that idea?

LOL!!! I'm just not into hurting people for the sake of securing a good vacation spot. Now, if a foreign enemy power took over the place, then your original plan has merit. [:D]

Dude, what are the chances.... My wife and I went there on our honeymoon. Not a good place to be if you don't drink and enjoy the party life huh? I ended up getting extremely sick the last night we were there and didn't know how bad it was until we got home. Went to the doctor and he said I had enough e-coli in my system to kill me. Must have been the grace of God... We had to check-out of our hotel at 11:00 and our flight didn't leave until 3:30 for Dallas. I remember sitting in the airport telling my wife to leave me there if I died. After seeing the locals call my wife Barbie when we went shoping downtown I didn't want her to be there unattended.

Our spot is Longboat Key, FL. We have been going there for the past 4 years. Next year will be our 5 year anniversary so the wife wants to try Hawaii.

Our experience was a carbon copy of that. I remember laying in bed, awake all night the day before we left, SURE I was gonna die. "So, THIS is how its gonna end" were my exact thoughts. Checked out of the room at 11:00, and flight wasn't for about 5 hours. I was miserable. I kissed the ground once we got back to USA terra firma. The ONLY good thing about it was the scuba diving. THAT was a blast. Also went to X-caret and swam with the dolphins. It was fun, but even the dolphin said to me "man, you look awful." [BD]

Sad thing about it is her sister and her husband went there 5 years prior (with good experinces except the language barrier was worse then) and they still told us not to go. I never listen...

My favorite vacation spot is any where in the US Virgin Islands, particularly St. Thomas and St. John. Why? (1) It's America! (2) of [i]National Geographic's[/i] Top Ten Beaches of the World, one is on St. Thomas (Magens Bay Beach, #1 BTW), and two are on St. John (Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay) (3) US money is exchanged there...wait, you don't need to exchange, the local currency is US! (4) duty-free customs on first...hmm... $1,000.00 of goods, six bottles of liquor per person, excellent shopping! (5) natives are [u]not[/u] restless, in the least (6) Constitution is applicable there, whew! (7) 'home of the banana daquiri', and (8) no passport needed. By favorite stateside vacation is, of course, News Orleans, Louisiana, Eric The(LouisianaMan)Hun[>]:)]

Went bare boating in the USVI and BVI a few years back, jeez that was nice. But my favorite spot would still be Kauai, very laid back.

This is going to sound tame, but Mrs. Arq12 and I love Savannah, Georgia. Beaches, history, laid back, and all that great food, washed down with Chatham Artillery Punch. We've been twice in two years, and probably will be back this spring (daughter LOVES the beaches on Tybee Island). All that, and it's an easy day's drive from Ohio, but would also love to spend a week in St. Thomas.
