Ok, there are actually other vacations besides Disney, so here are some other favorites.
New Orleans – My husband and I spent only a few days in New Orleans and we only did that because we were leaving on a Norwegian cruise from there and decided to check it out. It is really one of our favorite places and the place that we always say we would like to go back to (even though it is often about getting the best burger in the world at Port of Call!!). I think the best word I could use to describe New Orleans is unique. Friendly people, interesting history and a lot to do. We really only scratched the surface with our few days there and I hope to go back someday.
Washington, DC – This is another place that has so much to do! I have been to DC a few times – a family vacation, 8th grade class trip and about five years ago with my husband. Each time, I got to experience different things and had a great time. One of the best tours I have done anywhere happened at the Library of Congress. Free hour long tours are offered throughout the day and honestly, this was my husband’s pick, not mine. We were so lucky to get a volunteer that had a true passion and love for the place. We were there for over two hours! He told us right from the beginning that he would run his tour longer and anyone was welcome to leave whenever they wanted to. We stayed until the end.
Vancouver – This is another city that I feel like we only scratched the surface of. Our Alaskan cruise ended in Vancouver so we added on an extra day to visit. We rented a car and got to see quite a few attractions but there is definitely more to do. One highlight was the aquarium. It was small but I had read not to miss the shows. We got a schedule and made it a point to hit as many of the shows as we could. The small size of the aquarium made it very easy to see a show, walk around for 20-30 minutes and then see the next show. All of the shows were focused on a particular animal and demonstrated and described natural behaviors for the animals… no tricks just taught to entertain people. We thought we were spend maybe a few hours there and ended up there for most of the day.
Cape May – After a whole blog series about Cape May, I don’t think I need to say much more. When I go on vacation, it is often not for relaxing. Especially going somewhere new, I like to see and do as much as possible. So one of the reasons I love my Cape May trip each year is because it is truly relaxing. It’s easy for me to get to, great restaurants, beautiful scenery and time to just lay back and enjoy.
I have been a huge Disney and travel fan since childhood. I love going to new places and, of course, heading to Disney as often as I can.
