I voted San Diego. I lived there for 3 years and I'm dying to go back for a visit. Generally uncrowded beaches, wonderful weather year-round, and a variety of family activities make it a wonderful vacation destination. We never had a problem entertaining relatives while there.

Default Nyc

Once you pay the cost of getting and sleeping there- you can do SO many things at little to no cost.When I take the kids we eat street vendor food or pizza, go to the zoos(cheap) enjoy the park(free) visit the museums (cheap)you can even see a Yankee's game for around 15$ a person- if you don't mind less than fab seats. And we just walk or take the subway so the only time we pay for a cab is too/from the airport.

And when it's an adult trip- cheap shopping in chinatown. Some of the most well known designer sell their samples for less than $10 (clothing that does'nt quite make it into their shows, but still has the label)

THERE ARE JUST SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRIPS TO THE SAME CITY!!

I like such variety for vacations this was tough.. Current Boston just because of the variety. Need to get there next and take the wife around the historical parts and then just wander around the North End.

Outside of the US it has to be St Marteen. So relaxing - could spend a week there and do nothing but relax.

We're obviously two very different types of person. I like relaxing for an afternoon here and there but I'm very much someone who likes something to be going on a lot. I can't put into words how boring I find lounging around by the pool or on the beach.

Well, you missed a bunch of them. I've really enjoyed the vacations I've taken in Denver (CO), Colorado Springs (CO), Cheyenne (WY), Jackson (WY), Williams (AZ), Kanab (UT), Richfield (UT), Billings (MT), Spokane (WA), Bishop (CA), Dodge City (KS), and lots of other cities, large and small. I would have a very hard time picking any one of them as my favorite, but I guess I'd choose Denver just because I've been there more than any of the others.

Had a great mini vacation with my son just before he went to college for the first time - he/I just took some time and ran around Nebraska looking at historical sites that you learn about during Pioneer days part of history (Chimney Rock, Oregon Trail, etc...) - was amazed when we got off the Interstate and began to seek out these places what we saw/learned - had a great time.

VIVA LAS VEGAS!

Although I like San Francisco and New Orleans a lot as well. After two-plus years, I have yet to take full advantage of being so close to the Nation's Capital.

Chimney Rock (an Oregon Trail landmark in Nebraska), and the Oregon Trail itself, are near my property in Wyoming. There is a ton of history in that area. All one really has to do is take the time to get off the highway, and read some of the historical markers to realize how much history there is in any particular area. Once you have some idea about it, heading to the library or going on the internet is a good way to expand your knowledge of these things. I don't think there is really anywhere in this country where you couldn't learn a lot about the early travelers and settlers in the region. I appreciate learning about these things, which I think is one of the reasons I have enjoyed my vacations in the smaller cities and towns in this country.
