Default Vacation Spots in the US...

Next year is our 10th wedding anniversary and we would like to go somewhere on vacation. We have gone on vacation with my parents, but DH and I have not gone anywhere "just the two of us" unless it has been tent camping. I like camping but I do want to stay under a real roof this time-lol.

We have not really decided on a budget yet, just kind of putting out feelers. Any recommendations in the US for great vacation spots?

Actually, we haven't decided. We are pretty open on that right now. I don't think it would be January, November, or December though because of the holidays.

Reason I ask is because sometime like August-Sept in Western Washington is fan freaking Fantastic for traveling and doing stuff... rest o the year. Yeah, not so much unless you like rain or hunting.

If time of the year isn't an issue I'd marry interests to location to best time of year for that location. My Mom is doing a wine country tour later this year, my sister is taking her kids to Disneyland in late September when everyone is back in school, my older brother is heading Brazil for some Carnival.

I'm going golfing at Myrtle beach, S. Carolina in May for 2 weeks. It's out 25th anniversary. We were going to go to Hawaii, but decided to wait til next year and take our youngest for her high school graduation instead. I think Hawaii is the only place in the US that we haven't been.
Dh's mother is also pretty sick so we didn't want to go too far anyway.
Congratulations on your anniversary!! I'm sure you'll have fun no matter where you go. The US has so many great places.

I absolutely love the outer banks in NC, if you're looking for beaches. Sand, sun, wild horses, lighthouses, mini golf...just a fun week.

What kind of vacation are you guys looking for? Keep in mind, I am a city person so I have no idea when it comes to small towns/outdoor adventures but here are my favorite city experiences..

BEACH WISE?

Miami is fun during december. You get the beach and the weather is nice (Warm, breezy, not too hot. perfect beach weather) Plus it's very popular in december so plenty to do and lots to see, Miami is a fun city.

SAN-DIEGO, Cali. I really enjoyed my time in Cali plenty to do (the san-diego wild animal park is a must see) great restaurants, lovely beaches (although the water isn't very warm! lol but they have otters)

THEME-PARKY/ACTIVITY WISE

Can't beat Orlando, FL. Universal, six flags, Disney world, Epcot, Water parks.. it's like the themepark capital of the world

Atlanta, GA. Usually this wouldn't even be on the list but the Atlanta aquairum is simply amazing. It's one of the biggest in the world, they even have a whale shark!! Check it out on youtube. amazing. amaznig.

JUST PLAIN' OL PRETTY

I went to DC to see the cherry blossoms and thought that was really magical.

BEST OVERALL (If you like cities)

You can't beat NYC. Especially in the fall. Central park is beautiful, weather is perfect (fall orange weather), lots of shows, lots to do.. it's new york.
I wouldn't go in the summer or deep winter though.. personally.


FUN IN A CHEESY KIND OF WAY?

Vegas. lol drinking, shows, gambling, plastic awesomely tacky fun! I went with my parents (so mind you, my experience was quite PG-13) but got to see some AMAZING shows (Cirque du soleil will blow your mind), amazing restaurants and I really did enjoy myself in all it's tackiness lol

Oh and don't forget to check http://www.tripadvisor.com/ !! You don't want to ruin your vacay with a bad hotel..

Everyone knows where I recommend but beyond that....

If you like beach stuff Folley Beach in South Carolina is quite nice

Lancaster, pa (where we live) is a nice area. lots to do and it's a laid back type of vacation.

That's pretty much all I've got lol

Beaches are cool, but not super important. We live near Lake Michigan, so beaches aren't really a novelty. I do think ocean beaches are neat though, so that would be a plus.

We really enjoy zoos and aquariums, so those would be awesome too. I traveled a lot when I was a kid, much more than DH did. We have been to Vegas a few times with my parents, so I'm thinking somewhere else. I LOVE Disney, but DH is a bit luke warm about the idea at the moment....
