Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

I do a trip to a family camp above Fresno every year but other than that, not really. If it's not Pittsburgh (Never been to PNC Park) New York (Have to go to NY in my lifetime and would like to see Citi Field, or Southern California (California Adventure and Cars Land), I don't entirely want to travel.

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

In less than 2 weeks, I'm going on my honeymoon. We're staying in Santa Monica, and I'm going to try to do as many touristy things as possible (without hauling ourselves out to Anaheim) while we're in the L.A. area. Other than that, I'm not sure, although friends in Maine keep offering to host us at their cabin on Moosehead Lake, so we may do that next summer.

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

I am very excited for this trip I'm about to take. Especially for Dodger Stadium and AT&T Park - those are the ones I'm looking forward to the most. I'm glad I'm getting the Diamondbacks' park out of the way early - not exactly thrilled about being in Phoenix, AZ in the middle of #)(%* July, but hey, I made the bed, now I lie in it. (And fortunately, Chase Field has a roof!)

^ How did you like NYC, by the way? Did you enjoy Citi Field? (I sure do, I always love going there.)

Been going in and out of there for about a lifetime now. So, of course, I love it there.

Citi Field is pretty nice.

Well, I did in March, when my Dad and I did about a month long cross-country trip to California and visited many national parks and monuments along the way. It was an amazing trip

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

Normally, I make a trip to some European city with my partner for the summer vacation (sightseeing, museum crawling, trying new food and drinks... the usual stuff), but since the arrival of the kid we had to cut that, at least until he's a bit older.

So, like last year, I'm going to enjoy some time relaxing at a spa in the Venetian countryside with my family. Nothing too fancy, but very nice.

Glad you're still finding a way to relax. And I very much want to visit Italy and it's a little bit of a sore spot with me. The ex was supposed to take me and never did, and I tried to be patient while watching many of my friends and all my family visit. Now I don't know if I'll ever see Italy. But I'd really like to, someday.

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

Yes. We (my family and I), will be traveling to Gatlinburg, TN next month. I expect to get sunburn, even if it is overcast the whole time. I also expect to blind everyone with my exceedingly white skin, because I AM wearing shorts.

Aw, that sucks. Well, plan a trip to the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, and you can tell yourself you are not visiting Italy.

I went to Minneapolis for a few days a couple of weeks ago. That will probably be it for this year.

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

I'm visiting my family in Seattle as I do most summers. I'm going in 2 1/2 weeks, so I'll be there for my nephew's first birthday (July 2nd) and for the 4th. I wish I could travel more but I can't afford it and get only 2 weeks off a year.

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

The sequestor has curbed my plans of doing any major traveling with the family. We are trying to find cheap getaways at the moment. My parents own a condo in the Outer Banks and if not rented would be a nice week long trip to the beach.

Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

For those interested, Southwest Airlines has a special Las Vegas vacation package:

http://www.southwestvacations.com/De...code=VIVAVEGAS

It's only good for late August and September, and I'm still debating whether or not to go. I haven't been there since 2010 and would surely like to see the new resorts (ARIA, Cosmopolitan).
