We've been to Disneyland and it sounds good. I've been there before and I have family around the area. Although the Idea of not flying appeals a little bit more to my pocket. I was born in raised in NYC so I'd like to go somewhere different. Maybe PA or VA isn't a bad idea.

I'm not a beach person but I do love pools, visiting museums, the theatre (not Cineplex ), parks, and sightseeing. I like a balance between a busy and relaxing vacation. I like both indoor and outdoor activities and I looooooooove amusement parks but my kids are 4 and 5 so I need to go to a kiddy friendly park. I think my Grammy's idea of going to Sesame Place is great. Do they have other things to do in that area? I am aiming to go on vacation at the end of June or beginning of July.

Thanks for all of your suggestions!

I have a website for you, Isabella. I used to live in Perkasie. We really liked going to Peddler's Village and New Hope. It's been awhile, but I do remember it as being very "artsy." Lots of neat little shops--fun to walk around. I see something about hot air balloon rides on that site. I know when we lived there, every weekend you could count on at least one balloon flying overhead. They were beautiful to watch. Anyway, here's the website--

If you go to PA there is Hershey. I would go there. Go get a chocolate spa bath....... All the street lights look like Hershey's Kisses. Okay, gotta stop or I might have to eat some chocolate.

Default Favorite Vacations Spots (Kid Friendly)

Two of my absolute favorite places are in TN and PA. In PA it would be Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster...there is also Hershey Park not too far from there. And in TN it is Dollywood. She has 2 parks...her reg. park and then Splash Country (water theme park) we have not been to the water park but we have been to her other one...a total of 5 times for one week at a time we still have not seen it all!! It is HUGE and oh, SO much FUN!!! Tammy

If you are on a budget, then I think a trip west to Sesame Place and then Hershey Park would be nice. I would try to arrange it so you don't drive more than a few hours each day, and find fun places to stop at.
