? If you're right there in the vicinity, why not Portofino? Or at least Santa Margherita Ligure?

I always think of Capri more as a honeymoon spot whereas Rome is alive and kickin'. Thoughts? Need to make a weeklong trip this year with some buddies, all in early 20's...I was thinking Lisbon but I went only two years ago. Haven't been to the south of France but not sure this is the group to go with. Trying to find a balance between Capri and Ibiza / Cancun.

Ditto. In my limited vacationing experience, I have a hard time just sitting still. And I'm not a hot weather/beach sorta person. So a big city. I think cycling around the Netherlands will be our next trip.

So for a favorite: any big historical city with beautiful architecture and a great public transit system. Bike friendly would be good too. I guess that leaves some options.

/\\ Cape Cod is such a fantastic vacation spot , I hope they will open "Legal Sea Food" restaurant there to complete the New England nirvana.

Yeah, I am on the line, the perfect thing for me is one year a sit on the beach vacation, one year a move around and see things vacation.

I think you guys will love holland. Great food (not so much the fancy food, but the middle of the line food is great) pretty, nice people, good museums.

I haven't been out of the US in 3 years now. Keep turning buisness trips into vacations. So I have vacationed in Miami for the last 3 years LOL

I really like going to Nassau. I also really like going to Zurich and Budapest.

I need to really do on a proper vacation soon!

Of course I am going on the Southern Rock Cruise in January.

I love all kinds of places from a quiet Maine lake in the summer to Lake Garda in Italy. But for a peaceful, relaxing, sunny spot, my wife and I love Zihuatanejo, Mexico. It still has the look and feel of old Mexico without massive high-rise hotels. I've often thought of living there.

Seriously, is there anywhere in that city that isn't beautiful? Man. Just gorgeous. 30 mins from Monte Carlo, the beach, the city square, the people in the parks, the little shopping areas. Perfection.

My favorite vacation by an unfair margin was Tanzania. Unfair because it was our honeymoon and holds a special place.

I think the word you are looking for is Enchanting.

Loved Eze, too.



BTW, the picture I pasted above for St. Thomas was from the website of the villa we rented for two weeks back in '05, so we got that exact view. 100 feet up on a cliff overlooking St. John and the BVI. Awesome. St. Thomas is relatively urban with stuff to do like restaurants (Craig & Sally's in Frenchtown http://www.craigandsallys.com/ ), bars, etc. Then, it's just a 20 minute ferry ride across to St. John for the best beaches on the friggin' planet.

Newfoundland, the Madelines or the Bra d'or lakes on Cape Breton Island. I really liked cruising the Canadian Maritimes and would like to go back.

No one likes to go to the snow capped mountains? I go skiing/boarding once/year at minimum usually to a family friend's beautiful, secluded cabin 20min from Breckenridge lifts (though we rarely ski there--mostly Copper and A-Basin on snow days). Beyond the skiing, being in a frozen forest with a roaring wood burning furnace and fireplace... just wonderful. Alternatively, I go to Whistler as I have friends & family in Vancouver (which is also a fantastic city with amazing food). As for beaches: I prefer Hawaii to the Caribbean And for general awesomeness/diversity of cities and amazing landscape: Beunos Aires + Patagonia (Bariloche especially)
