Which place could you go back to time and time again?

Asked by TheProfoundPorcupine (2512 points ) December 28th, 2012

We all have places that we perhaps like to go to at different times with this place being special in some way. Maybe you met somebody there, it was a place you visited in your childhood or a whole host of other reasons that just marks this out as being a bit different.

For me it is a part of Scotland called the Trossachs, which includes Loch Lomond, and it stands out as it has some fantastic roads to drive along, amazing scenery with hills and lochs and forests and it is amazingly peaceful so acts as a great place to just get away and think things over or just to get out of the rat race.

So what special place do you go back to or which place would you love to go back to if you had the chance?

Really any wooded area with deciduous trees, that smells of moss, and is sufficiently away from others that I can hear myself think… Double bonus if there’s an easy to climb tree with a good limb to take a nap on.

Porcupine Mountains on the south shore of Lake Superior. The trails, waterfalls and beaches are breathtaking. It’s my idea of heaven.

Breckinridge, Colorado. It’s a lovely, sleepy little ski town with lots of quiet coffee shops and gorgeous scenery. Flagstaff, Arizona is a beautiful little town with lots of Elk Crossing signs and fir trees, it’s clean and fresh like a painting.

Lake Tahoe, on the CA/NV border is the main one for me. I’ve been all over the world, but it’s still one of my most favorite places. My family has a house there and I’ve been going there at least once a year since I was a baby; I never get tired of it.

The Swiss Alps. My mother is Swiss, but did not grow up in the Alps, and I have only visited there a few times – but not in 20 years. Yet somehow when I look at pictures from there, it feels like home to me. My fiancĂ© and I plan to honeymoon there when we finally save up for a wedding and honeymoon.

Any pine forest in any mountains.

Just about any beach in Australia. I never tire of the ocean and here each beach has its own particular pleasure and beauty. It is impossible to choose just one. Although the beach on Fraser Island is hard to beat!

My place is Drumnadrochit in Scotland which is a town very close to Loch Ness. I love the Highlands in general though and Loch Lomond is lovely.

Any West Coast beach/coastline in California will do, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Monterey, probably due to family roots there.
