Glacier is nice too! Never camped in Yosemite? (Just had a mental picture of folks giving a group hug to a Sequoia with all "mother's" friends and the creatures of the forest floor.)

Have camped in Yosemite (actually above Yosemite) at least 15 times, maybe closer to 20, as a kid and an adult. Have camped (if you can call it that) in Yosemite Valley, but prefer to be away from the valley. Right in my backyard (well, about 2 1/2 hour drive) and one of my favorite places and I forgot about it; must have been a senior moment.

Oh yeah, Glacier is on our hit list, along with Lake Louise and Banff a little north.

Go Sharks.

Hello everybody,

there are other kinds of vacation besides cruises?!?

But seriously: Being addicted to the sea, my personal "next best vacation" is a trip to the German North Sea coast with its great sea climate and the unique "Wattenmeer".

Several years ago we packed our Corvette and headed to Yellowstone. We didn't have a definite itinerary, just drove until we decided to stop. We stopped at Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills. Then continued on to Yellowstone. It was a fantastic journey and so simple. (You can't get too complicated when you are packing for a 10 day trip in a Vette!).

We have family in California in wine country. We never get tired of going there. Or to our daughter's home near Ft. Myers, FL.

There are many beautiful places and National Parks to visit in the US. If we weren't so hooked on cruising, we could think of lots of places we would like to go. Cruises just seem to take priority most of the time!

Great thread Ken!
For our family it's Maine, all the way. There is nothing like sitting on Long Sands Beach, staring at the ocean and Nubble Light House. We usually stay in Ogunquit, near Perkins Cove and eat lobster and steamers almost every night. Arizona is our second favorite.

Retirement here we come.... Give me Maine for the summers and Arizona for the winters on the golf course and we're happy people. Only 25 more years to go.

I can get into lobster and steamers every night - actually just the steamers would do for me.

A'ndrea, we love Maine as well, and have thought of retiring there. In all fairness, most of our travels there have been on the coast. You're right -- Ogunquit is magnificent. I also love Bar Harbor.

We practically live on lobster and steamers in the summer. Forget the fancy places -- the best spots are the hole-in-the-wall restaurants.
