My Favorite Vacation Places

I don't get to travel nearly as much as I used to (not that I was ever traveling frequently) but now that my life is so hectic, it's much more difficult to get away. Most of our vacations are to visit family members or me tagging along on one of my husband's business trips...which I love to do. I know one day I will have more time to travel again...until then I can add to my list of places I want to go...here are some of my favorite places in the United States that I have visited...notice they almost all have something in common...WATER...I just love being on the water.

 

The Pictured Rocks, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Breathtakingly beautiful....photographs can't do it justice.

Northport, Michigan (home of my Michigan parents)
The triplets and I are heading here the end of July!!!

Copper Harbor, on the shores of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Wonderful memories of summer vacations here as a kid.
 
Cedar Spring Inn outside of Charlottesville, Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This is only two hours from our home, and D and I love to escape here for a little R&R.

Snoqualmie Falls and the Cascade Mountains in the state of Washington.
Love the entire Pacific Northwest area.
 

Mackinac Island, Michigan...this is where I met my husband back in 1986!
I think we need to spend the 30th anniversary of the night we met at the Grand Hotel!

Harbour Court, the New York Yacht Club annex, in Newport, Rhode Island.
This is a very special place for sentimental reasons.

Mount Rushmore was FAR more awe inspiring than I ever could have imagined.
Would love to go back some day!

Bellows Beach is a secluded beach at Bellows Air Force Base on Oahu, Hawaii.
I WILL go back some day....primarily because D goes to Hawaii on business...LOL.
 

Lido Beach in Florida...I spend a week here every March with my Virginia Parents.
It is ALWAYS a much needed respite.
 
What are some of your favorite vacation spots in the United States?

Thanks for mentioning Cedar Springs Inn. My #2 goes to W&L and there are no great hotels in Lexington. Will definitely look into staying there on our next visit! Have a wonderful weekend, Christine!

Lido Beach is about an hour and a half north of one of our favorite Florida beach vacations, Boca Grande, which I wrote about here... http://theglampad.blogspot.com/2013/01/sneak-peak-secret-island-getaway.html

The picture you posted looks just like the Gulf of Mexico view from the condo where we stay... it is GORGEOUS!!

XOXO,
