1. CHICAGO (Pray for the Olympics) 2. London and Ireland 3. Charleston
But I have to admit even after visiting these wondrous places, I feel like kissing the ground when I get home.

Would you consider Eureka more similar to cities in Oregon and Washington?

It's not so much that the people are different, I believe it's more to do with proximities.

Well, I just got back from Brazil(I live there half the year) and was in Vegas about 2 days ago but that was on business.

Next week Im supposed to be taking my parents to a neice's wedding n New Zealand and we might stop off in Tonga(my parents were both born there) to sign a 50-year lease on some land that we've had our eyes on for a really long time. If my parents arent up to that much traveling then I'll leave them in Auckland with relatives for a day and I'll fly to Tonga by myself to get things done.

Otherwise, before summers over, I need to make time to go to Paris to visit with a dear college friend who is very ill and might not survive the season. Our class alumni(go UCLA!) website is abuzz about it.

As you can see, my trips are rarely vacations. LOL

Outside of CA, Hawaii, Cabo and Vegas seem the most popular.

Disneyland, Monterey (Carmel area), Yosemite, Tahoe, San Diego. That is just for California--many people also leave the state and go to Hawaii, Vegas, Mexico, Canada, Europe.

One thing about Caliofrnia that can take a while to sink in is the sheer size of the state: California is the size of all the New England and central coastal states combined. From the bay area you can drive 4-6 hours in any direction and still be in California.

I'm cheap and don't like to fly so most of my vacations are in California: Humboldt County, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, sometimes trips to the mountains or the desert or charming/funky little valley or delta towns for day trips. I still have a huge list of vacation spots and historic sites in California I have yet to visit: Yosemite, Allensworth, Coloma, the Winchester House, the Trees of Mystery, the Skunk Train, Columbia State Historic Park...It's a hard state to wear out, and vacationing in-state is relatively cheap. So why leave?

More similar than what? Eureka is a very small city, the whole county has maybe 100,000 pop. Except for coolish climate it bears no resemblance to Portland or Seattle. Maybe I didn't understand your question?

Yeah ... I once flew direct from Orlando, Fla (my ideal vacation spot) back home to LA, which was a 6 hour flight. Turns out, the plane was laying over then heading towards Honolulu, which is another 6 hours. Goodness! It never occurred to me previously that it was about 12 hours from Florida to Hawaii! It's no wonder that the east coasters do the Carribean while the west coasters do Hawaii.
