This is a hard one for me to answer! There are still so many places I want to go to on a vacation and exactly what is the definition of "vacation?" Is it just where you like to rest and relax, is it a trip somewhere, or both?
My favorite vacation spot, to a place I've been, where the sole purpose is rest, relaxation and fun, is the Outer Banks, North Carolina, specifically Corolla. My family has been going there for years and it's only 3 1/2 hours away, so you can even go for a nice long weekend.
Corolla is most famous for the wild horses on the beach. Whenever I'm there I can feel the stress melting away.
The Outer Banks is also where Blackbeard (the pirate) sailed and wrecked his most famous ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge.
My favorite trip/vacation that I've taken was to Florence, Italy in 2002, when I studied abroad there the summer after my sophomore year of college. I can't express how much I think everyone needs to go there, it will change your life and your outlook on it!
That's me buying some fresh produce at the market.
The Chianti Region of Tuscany
I've never been to Destin, Florida and it's the place I want to go to next on a rest and relaxation vacation.
Everything I've ever seen and read about it sounds so amazing.
And the water looks intoxicating! I can't wait to take Spencer one day.
