    Travel/Vacation Thread

    Post your experiences, destinations, traveler's tips, and plans to travel to places foreign and domestic, vacation and business.

    I really love to read about people's trips or/and vacation destinations. It gives me and I'm sure others ideas about where to go next and what is there to do and see. Pictures would be cool too.

    This July I'm planning on renting a house in either Poconos or upstate for about 10 days to take the family away from NY hustle and heat. We did the same last year and the kids loved it. Lake, quiet, cool evenings, calmness. Beats NYC.

    I'd love to go somewhere like that as well. I did that with my ex, somewhere in Liberty, NJ I believe.

    Going to St. Petersburg, Florida this year for 10 days..nothing interesting really.

    Simon I'm right out here in Morris County just off of route 80 and our summer nights are almost always like you described. I have the deck, stream in the back, lake down the street, woods all around.
    I don't know how you guys do that city thing. Nice to visit but not for me.

    Nice!
    San Diego is such a jewel. You will see, it makes LA look like Beirut.

    Rockland Astronomy Club has a Summer Star Party in the Berkshires. You don't have to have a telescope or be an astronomer to camp out on the grounds -- or rent a B&B nearby -- and enjoy the semi-dark skies and see celestial wonders:

    Been going there for 15 years, always have a great time.

    I've been to LA a few times. Staying with family friends as usual. Last time I was in San Diego I was 18 months old so obviously I dont remember it. Driving down with mom and spending 2 days there. If anyone has been there recently and can recommend some restaurants or sites to see post here. Do not tell me to go to the zoo.

    I was in San Diego a couple of years ago....Loved it....I want to move there so bad.
    My wife is heading to Israel for 10 days on a group sponsored trip in July. Gonna be a long 10 days since i gotta survive taking care of a 2.5 year old.
    Just booked a Disney trip in September.
    Going to Miami for a long weekend in November
    Looking to go to Vegas, New Orleans or Caribbean in December (all depends on how many JetBlue points I can use and cost)

    As far as San Diego, go to the Zoo. . For breakfast hit Cafe 222, some bad ass waffles with pb and banana, if I remember correctly its not too far from Petco and from the convention center. Burger Lounge for a burger is not a bad spot, its kind of like a 5 guys. Yard House was a good spot for beer

    I recommend Turks and Caicos, JetBlue is the only airline that flies direct from NY, its about a 3 hour flight. One of the nicest beaches ive been to. Definitely more of a relaxing spot rather than go out and party. Take into consideration it is very expensive to eat in the restaurants there and to get around by cab.

    I really want to go to the Cayman Islands.

    Just got back from St.Lucia a few weeks ago and have no upcoming plans. This summer is for yard work. Maybe Sarasota in the fall.

    Awesome. Had a great time. Stayed at Sandals Grande. It's a pricey trip, though.

    I would do that, but my mother in law is coming from Israel with the whole family in July.
    Shoot the puck!
