We have quite the varied population so we don't all go to the same places on vacation. My last vacation was to Costa Rica. My next vacation I'm going to the Benelux countries and then to Iceland.

Disney World, of course!

Actually, about 8 out of 10 of my vacations are at Disney. I also like to go to the beach, to the mountains, and last year I went to London. So we travel like everyone else. But it's hard to justify all that hassle at the airport when there are so many nice places to stay right here in Florida.

Your question reminds me of some of bssd's, lol!

In the last 6 years I've stayed in town 3 times (timeshare), did a weekend in Ft. Lauderdale, did a week in the Palm Beach area, and did a week in Hilton Head Island, SC (by Savannah, GA). Of course, we also visited family in Atlanta a number of times.

If people want to go to the mountains, the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge TN area is popular, or Western North Carolina.

Europe and anywhere else that is away from theme parks ;-)

My family and I go to Europe twice a year and then we take a cruise once a year. In between, we go to places here and there around the U.S.

We like to visit my cousin and wife who live on Lake Norman, North Carolina. The accomodations are spectacular, and the price is right! Also it is a man-made fresh water lake without the type of critters that we have in Florida lakes so that you can ski, tube, or swim without the usual fears.

Key West is my favorite place to visit. This year we've gone to Austin, Texas (vacation for me, business for husband), Key West for a week in late May, will be back in Key West for six nights next month, and in December an eight night cruise to St. Maarten, Barbados and Martinique. We usually cruise to somewhere in the Caribbean once a year, but it's been two years since our last. We've also visited California (San Francisco and the Wine Country) several times and Washington, D.C. When the kids were younger, we made several trips to the mountains in North Carolina. We don't usually do long vacations at the beach, but will take a long weekend there every now and then. I still want to visit Southern California, and we hope to eventually visit Europe one of these years.
