Lisa and I went to Sedona, AZ for our honeymoon. We have talked about going back there again. I got plans to go to Las Vegas this summer so it's more likely that we would stop a night or two in Sedona while we're on the way to LV.

Chicago was a fanastic place for me and I have considered taking Lisa there since she hasn't been there before.

Portsmouth in Maine is an excellent place to go when you want to check out Maine and have some cheap lobsters to eat.

I have been there several times. It is approximately 50 miles from my hometown. It is a quaint town, particularly beautiful in the fall with the blazing foliage. I think it is one of best-kept secrets in Pennsylvania.

My great-grandfather was from that town. His family moved to the town from a farm just a few miles south after the Civil War. It was formerly called Mauch Chunk. The town changed its name to honor Jim Thorpe, a famous Native American athlete. It was an attempt to revive tourism in the area, even though Jim Thorpe had no connection there. His remains are buried there.

A couple of links for anyone who is interested.

I've vacationed almost everywhere, so I can't say what my favorite spot is, because they all have their own pros/cons. Let's say that I love them all!

it IS bootiful there!!!!!! been there once for a family reunion several years ago

MY fave vacation basically consists of being on the road and checking new places out (especially those that arent in the map) and camping at various locations!!!!!!

*driving down the highway into the sunset*

I go there too! Have not been there for a while though...
Maybe this year I will make time to go there, because it is part of my heritage, the Pennsylvania Dutch. It's also near Dorney Park.

Allentown is closer to Jim Thorpe. PA Turnpike (I-476), exit #74 Lehighton. After making the exit, you should see directions for the town. Enjoy.

I have been to the festival several times. Like Kuifje75, my family is part of the PA Dutch. My friend from PA and I talked about going to the festival, but I am not sure if I can go this year. If I go, it would be cool if we, the ADers, meet.

Dorney Park! It was always part of my summer plans until I left home for college. Many memories there.

Wow, that's beautiful! I love to go to BlackHill, South Dakota for a vacation. I guess it's the only one place I've gone recently with my own family. I've gone to Montana, but I don't consider it as a vacation, because it was only one full day (no overnight stay).

I guess I need to get out more often to share the world with my little sweeties. I want to take my boys to Calfornia DisneyLand, Florida DisneyWorld, Canada Expo, and few others. I think it'll be fun for them to experience while they're still boys.
