Travel destinations, what are your favorites # 2
Coming from here
Pretty area.....I always liked crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge...not the tunnels, though!
not yet, but that looks pretty cool, or rather, hot!
We're probably going to Quebec this summer. Will do Amtrak to Montreal, spend a few days there, and rent a car and drive to Quebec City. We will be going with my CT friends.
Sounds like a great trip!! How is your wife feeling today? Have you dodged it?
She is starting to feel better, thanks. So far I have avoided it, knock wood.
Knock knock!! :) Good to hear she is feeling better!
Two hours WEST of Montreal is Ottawa - Canada's National Capital! If you can manage time come this way too. http://www.ottawatourism.ca/en/visitors/attractions
I spent a week on Block Island (off the coast of RI) several years ago. It was one of the most wonderful, peaceful and relaxing vacations I've taken. We took only our bicycles (i.e., no car) and rented a house right on the ocean. I've wanted to go back ever since, but we never seem to get around to it. Maybe it's just one of those special memories that would be ruined by a second trip...
But if you like the ocean and natural beauty, with much fewer tourists than the Cape, MV or Nantucket, it's worth a visit.
Thanks, Ann! I'll look into that.
Block Island and Nantucket are on my list, Christina.
We did the Ottawa trip a few years ago, DH twisted his ankle so we didn't skate on the canal. It was nice, but cold!
It won't be cold in the summer! :-) Canal is only skateable for January and February and maybe into March if we're lucky. May has the tulip Festival. Canada Day - July 1 is a major downtown party -free museums and many downtown streets closed until after the fireworks. Entertainment all day on Parliament Hill. And during the summer there are LOTS of various music festivals
Debi - so sorry your DH twisted his ankle and couldn't skate.
Sounds like a nice trip, Victor. Haven't been to Canada in ages, although I love Louise Penny's series of mysteries set in Quebec......Block Is. is a fav place of mine....have been numerous times, & have always enjoyed it, so you won't spoil it by a second trip, SOJ.
We'll probably be going the end of August.
We're going to an all-inclusive family resort about 90 minutes north of here.
It's a dude ranch but lots of other stuff to do. Three meals and tips are included.
Amtrak is offering $89 round-trip fares from NYC to Montreal for Thu-Mon travel through Apr 28. Nice deal!
You are sooo bad, Victor! Right now I'd like a cheap flight to someplace very warm!
It got up to 85 today here. Our a/c is on again. :( (Yeah, Louise, why don't you complain about the weather for this sympathetic crowd!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL Sorry.....I lost my head!) :)
YES!!! Hee hee. Wish I were there!
We are HOPING to go to Italy in '12! Would be my first trip to Europe. Excited about it.
Very awesome!!! Hubby has no interest in going to Europe, I'll have to find someone to go with...can I stow away with you?
