Thanks for all the amazing responses! Based on your input my top three will be San Diego, Hawaii, and the Bay Harbrour area. You guys are amazing!

If you go for the Bar Harbor area in Maine, PM me. My brother and his family lived in Bar Harbor before he was transferred to work in San Francisco (poor thing, right). He rents out his house during the summer and probably knows places that y'all could rent houses.

Look up housekeeping cottages near Mt. Desert. Less expensive, some have swimming pools, if you are on the island it is easy to use the bus system to get around, lots of easy ocean side trails, excellent ranger talks. Be sure to walk the Wonderland Trail and take the Tidal Pool ocean talk.

The cottages have kitchenettes to keep meal costs down. Lots of places for picnics in the park and you can put those together before you head out.

You'll have to ask about bedding. You may have to pack your own. There is a Wal-Mart and a T.J. Maxx in Ellsworth (nearest town). Or everyone brings a sleeping bag and pillow.

As soon as it stops raining, we are headed for Seawall Picnic area to have meat kabobs and grilled corn. We had planned it for today, but woke up to a gentle rain.

Definitely Hawaii!! We were in Kauai and Oahu just a month ago and were amazed by the beauty.

Boston and Maine!

letsgomets 08-28-2013 04:41 PM

without a doubt. The most breathtaking place on earth.

SusanTeach 08-28-2013 03:59 PM

We loved NYC, but we're city people. We stayed a week and could easily have stayed more (or moved there).

Hifiman 08-28-2013 03:53 PM

We got in the car with very few destinations in mind and just drove. We figured it out as we went and it was great. I plan on doing the same next summer.

mrsb12247 08-28-2013 03:53 PM

Oregon: Portland is the best city in the country, and you are close to Crater Lake, the northern California Redwoods, Mt.Hood, the coast, Willamette Valley, Mt. St. Helens

New Hampshire: (I live here!) only 1-2 hours from Boston, beautiful but hike-able mountains, ever manner of outdoor pursuit, moderate summer temperatures, and 14 miles (woohoo!) of coastline. No sales tax on anything, either

The Southwest: you can easily do the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Bryce Canyone, Zion/Moab and Vegas in a loop trip in one week. It's a beautiful part of the country, but really hot in the summer..we were in Vegas one July and it was 112 degrees. But, "it's a dry heat "

Out of the country: I would go back to Iceland, Northern Wales, The Swiss Alps, the Italian Dolomites, or the Cinque terre. All really need more than a week to appreciate them, though.

Have fun on your trip!

MaryMac 08-28-2013 03:43 PM

Yellowstone, Tetons, Rockey Mountain National Park!

Japan - traveling all over on the JR pass

Italy - the history and food!!

Canada/Alberta - so much natural beauty and kind people.

SportingKC 08-28-2013 03:06 PM

I LOVED my trip to Belize. I combined some travel by myself with a group tour through REI.

I have nothing but positive things to say about that tour. I'd travel with REI again in a heartbeat.

Definitely Yellowstone!

canteach 08-28-2013 01:49 PM

Yellowstone, Pike's Peak, Mt. Rushmore, Denver Mint, San Fran, L. A?! Catalina Island, Seattle & Portland were all great vacation spots. Also loved St. Louis, Niagara Falls (both sides) and Put-in-Bay area as well as Macinac Island area. St. Augustine and Daytona are lovely as well as Savannah. I love history and natural wonders so I like any place where there is a historic tour or a museum. Taos, NM was interesting. I also want to go back to Gettysburg and Antietam at some point. I love The Biltmore Mansion and Asheville area. What about Williamsburg and the Chesapeake (sp?) Bay area? There are so many great places to visit!!!

love_to_learn 08-28-2013 01:47 PM

We loved Vegas, Asheville NC, and Charleston SC. All of those were great trips and I would say you would be happy you stayed a week in all of those.

I love vacation and love planning it!!!

dawnmei 08-28-2013 01:35 PM

San Diego was my favorite vacation ever!

ThinkBrink 08-28-2013 01:23 PM

Best ever was Williamsburg

Also enjoyed camping (with 31 boy scouts) in Custer State Park.

nyteacher29 08-28-2013 01:07 PM

ConnieWI 08-28-2013 01:05 PM

If you're looking within the US, try...

-coastal Maine (there's a resort called Sebago which has lots of activities for everyone)
-Alaska, went there this summer and it blew my mind
-USVI---went to St. Croix, it was amazing.

Have fun and let us know which one you pick!

If you are staying in the US, I would say to do NYC and DC. Those are both fun places to see.

teacherpippi 08-28-2013 09:24 AM

My husband and I saved up for a walking tour in Ireland. Absolutely AMAZING! We flew into Dublin, did a tour along the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland then rented a car back in Dublin and meandered for another week-ish.

Footfalls Walking Holidays

ETA: Best in US- check out Alaska or the Boundary Waters!

aeiouteach 08-28-2013 09:15 AM

1). Hawaii

2). San Diego

I<3Teaching13 08-28-2013 09:09 AM

Seattle! I live here, but it's my favorite place I've ever been to.

CLD2 08-28-2013 08:59 AM

I am starting to think of ideas for our 2014 summer vacation. We plan early so everyone can save and make arrangements to be off work. We will stay 7 nights and are open to any destinations in the United States except the ones we have already traveled to as a group. So what was your best vacation destination ever? I need ideas. I will pick 3 since I do all the planning and everyone votes. Some states we have been to and prefer not to venture back to yet are: :Lousiana, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. We are looking to travel to a different region of the world. Thanks for ideas!
