I want to surprise my family with a last minute vacation

Postby chadlincoln » Tue Jun 26, 2007 11:53 am

Anyone know any good sites with deals on last minute vacation travel? I usually plan stuff far in advance so they won't be expecting this at all. Any ideas/web sites with great last minute stuff cheap would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can't think of anything. Usually if I go on vacation spur of the moment, I just drive to Vegas. :D

What are the parameters? How many people, how old? What's the budget? Where do you like to go?

Etc.

We had a nice time at St. Joseph, MI a few years ago, beach house rentals are pretty easy to come by and we had a nice time.

A friend of ours parents owned an awesome place on one of the Kentucky lakes, an old funeral home turned into a bed and breakfast, or "Dead and Breakfast" as we referred to it, that had a big place, lots of room for several families w/ small squirrelly children. We had some good times there. I got into it w/ my wife recently going 'what the hell, of course you remember the water park in Kentucky' b/c I forgot she was on the DL w/ a brütal hangover....there's a lot of places down there though.

Another idea might be to head north. When I was a kid we went to Lake Nebagamon which is way up near Superior, WI, got cabins, drove boats around the lake. I recall driving my grandpa around in the boat while he swilled from a quart juice jar full of Manhattans. I can't wait to be a grandpa. The water is pretty darn chilly up there though. At my grandpa's funeral a couple of years ago, some of my mom's cousins stayed there and reported nice condos w/ hot tubs, etc.

Another possible trip would be the UP of Michigan. My wife's uncle owns a house up there, on land that was in his wife's family before the Mackinaw bridge was there. Good visit for a week, went to Whitefish point museum, saw the bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald, Sioux Ste Marie locks were interesting and also Mackinaw Island was an amusing day trip.

Good man... I used to drive down to AC all the time when I lived in NJ.

Vegas is usually cheap and affordable. Plus you can gamble your way to getting some of the money back! :D

I think that vacationstogo.com is the name of the site that has deals on cruises.

the waters off Cape San Blas/Mexico Beach/Destin have been awesome lately. Destin looked like the Bahamas last month. That's an area of Florida to consider
