What is your most Memorable Vacation?

Asked by EverRose11 (1026points) January 29th, 2012

And did you do a vacation package deal? Asking because my daughter just did one to Iceland it was short, but jammed packed with fun she said, great Hotel, great Time! So wondering if other’s had good or bad Vacation package deal experiences they are willing to share. I have been looking at some and very hesitate about clicking that Book Now Button. Thank you for your answers in advance .

A cruise I took for our honeymoon, first ever cruise. It was less expensive than if we’d booked airfare, hotel, rental car and then meandered through unknown territory looking for fun and food. Everything was able to be researched ahead of time and had reviews, ratings, pictures, etc. We were able to have little tastes and exposure to more locales in a week than we could have done in a decade of vacations.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Got to do a snorkeling trip (which turned out to be white water since it had followed a hurricane). Went on a boat ride to a nearby town of ex-pats where the Indians came down from the jungle to sell their crafts. They were very shy and spoke their own language. Part of way we were accompanied by a school of dolphins leaping out of the water,

driving to Colorado and seeing the Rockies with my dog Maggie.

A trip to Cancun with a drunk guy. (I should have let his drunk ass drown in the pool) but I swam with dolphins and snorkeled.

A trip to the Bahamas with my choir from church in the 70s.

Two long road trips stand out.
When I was 15, our family got in the car and made an epic trip from Denver to Mt Rushmore, visit relatives in Iowa, stop by Mesa Verde, the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, and Las Vegas on our way to Disneyland. We camped all the way, except for an unexpected stop in Las Vegas to have the engine fixed/replaced. We were sleeping in a park in 100 degree heat at midnight, when Circus Circus took pity on us and gave us a free room.

The whole story is full of various adventures. Our visit to the Grand Canyon, for instance, consisted of Dad taking a picture of us standing by the entrance sign, after which we drove to a look out point, got out of the car, took a few pictures, got back in the car and drove away. The entire trip too two weeks.

The second one was the road trip Hubby and I took with three teenage grandsons and a dog from Sacramento to Yellowstone and then to San Diego. We spent a glorious 8 days in Yellowstone plus three days and two nights travel time to and from.

When I was in my late teens I took a trip with my dad to Cancún. It was one of the funnest trips I had ever had. When he asked me where I wanted to go, I said I want to go to a country that has a drinking age 18 or younger. I didn’t drink, but I wanted to be able toget into clubs without a hassle. It was great! Weather was good, pool area at the hotel was beautiful, beach has air conditioned sand, we took a couple days via local bus to visit some ruins. Absolutely loved it. Cancún is more commercial and Americanized now, but I still like it, I would especially love it if I were a teen again. The deals are very good for Cancún, there are many of them. Mine have not been a package deal, except once I did Club Med there.

Recently I took a trip to Stowe, VT, and I wish I had had more time there. Lots of little tours you can take. Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, how cheese is made, how maple syrup is made, history tour of the Von Trapps (that was our favorite) and we had good food the entire trip. But, this was not a package deal trip.

Cruises are fantastic if you want a no brainer vacation. So much is taken care of for you, and you don’t have to change hotels to see a lot of different cities.

My parents just got back from a tour in China, and said it was the best vacation of their life, and they have travelled a lot.
