On my husbands side of the family... a distant relative owns cabins on a lake in Vermont. Every year, each family will rent one cabin and have an annual family get together.

Sure, some don't do it every year - but there are some that do. My husband and I were able to go last year, but we weren't able to go for a few years previous to that.

So, I understand why your cousin does this.

Is there something to be said for sticking with the tried and true vacation as long as you like it?
I think it's totally fine. I take the same vacation every year too. Sure, I could go other places but I don't really want to.

I like to go to different places, but definitely understand returning to a favorite spot too. Many people in the Philly area own/rent homes at the same place on the Jersey Shore every Summer. Growing up, my neighbors in Philly happened to be our neighbors down the shore LOL. My Cousins in the Boston area have rented the same home on Cape Cod for nearly 30 years every Summer. My Mom always says "I can't believe they never bought a place after all those years" but maybe it would be too much of a hassle to own something, and would make the vacations stressful.

I could never work all year and use my vacation time at once though-I like to spread it out with "mini-vacations" or long weekends over the year but I also have more than 2 weeks.

It's his vacation.. He can do what he wants. Personally, that is not my cup of tea, but, more power to him

Guys! guys! you are responding to a user that has been banned multiple times and creates new IDs each time (note the "not a member" under the OP). The legitimacy of the very topic should be questioned.

In other words, you are wasting time and bandwidth on this thread.

Lol, which is why I didn't bother responding. Once you see "not a member", you should be done.

Yes, we do the same thing basically, I am from MN so his vacay would not be mine.
We drive to San Diego every year and stay at the same resort for a week but we take a slightly different path in and out.
We schedule 5 days to get there and 5 to get home, usually staying @ KOA's and some hotels if a KOA is not on our path.
Last summer we stayed 3 nights to see Old Faithful @ Yellowstone National Park, then 1 night in Utah and
headed down to Vegas for 1 night to show the kids the "shiny shiny strip" we walked around at 2 am and it was still 105 degrees, OMG.
We ate at a cool buffet and headed to our resort the next morning so we could watch 4th of July fireworks over the San Diego Bay that evening.

On our trip home we always stop in Havasu city and a small tourist trap town for photo ops every year with our kids, we take pics at the same location, but this year we went to the Hoover Dam also.
Every 2-3 years we stop at the Grand Canyon on the way home.
We also stop at Mount Rushmore/Black Hills.
We like to mix it up but like to return to the same areas too.

This year we will stop at Glenwood Springs, Colorado to ride the swing and Royal Gorge to walk the bridge.
