Vacations are a Trip


Do you look forward to your vacations, but have reached the point where you are not quite sure what to do or where to go? Take a moment to clear your mind, get your creative juices going, and you will find vacation options that are relaxing, enervating, and exciting. Here are some suggestions to get you going.

The National Parks

No matter your preferred mode of transportation, the National Parks are a great destination. All the parks are accessible by air travel and automobile, and trains can reach most. If you think camping is your only option, think again. Hotel lodgings are available either on site or in the immediate vicinity. During the day, there are driving routes or trails for a day hike. If you are up for it, try an overnight camping trip into the back country.

Take a Train

Amtrak offers a number of different travel options. You can travel by rail from point A to point B, or you can by regional passes that allow unlimited travel in multiple regions of the country. Under this plan, you can board or disembark at your convenience and enjoy the sights, sounds, and ambience of different parts of the country.

Get your kicks

Automobile vacations are great ways to see the country. From the Pacific Coast Highway, to historic Route 66, to Route 2 along the northern border, you can plan a trip that takes you from the great cities, to the tiny hamlets, from the heartland to the coastal plains. By traveling the U.S. highway system, you can see parts of America that have retained their charm and held off the incursions of the metropolitan world.

Won't you let me take you on a sea cruise

From a romantic getaway, to family fun, to a full-scale reunion, cruises are one of the great bargains in the travel industry. In fact, the larger your group, the better your rates. You can cruise the coast of Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico, or the islands of the Caribbean. Ports of call can be at Victoria, B.C., Jamaica, the Bahamas, Mexico, and more. For an even more exotic holiday, take a cruise to the Galapagos, retracing the voyage of the Beagle.

Develop your own theme

For family fun, have all the members of your clan work to develop a special theme. Fall in New England or the Ozarks, retracing the journey of Lewis and Clark or Huckleberry Finn, Revolutionary or Civil War Battlefields, or homesteads of U.S. vice-Presidents. With unlimited possibilities, the joy of these vacations lies in everyone having input, and believing they contributed to their success.

No matter what your preference, great vacations can come pre-packaged or designed a la carte, and can gratify even the most eclectic tastes and preferences. Ask yourself, “If you could go anywhere, where would that be, and how can you get there?”
