    OK, so the Girl has been bitching that she needs a vacation. Unfotunately, we don't have the money/leave to go on a real vacation (that will probably be in June).

    So, she wants to go away for a long weekend in that last weekend of March/first weekend in April (3/30 - 4/3), making it a 4 day weekend on either side.

    Anyway, the point of this post is to see where y'all think we should go.

    I want someplace that will be good for pics.
    She wants someplace to relax
    I want someplace with some culture
    She wants someplace warm

    We both want good restaurants
    We both want good walking around type places

    Umm, I'm sure there's more, but I can't think.

    So far here's our list of choices (but we aren't limited to it), and in no particular order:
    • Seattle
    • Portland, OR
    • Vancouver
    • Montreal
    • Toronto
    • Austin
    • Caribbean (not sure which island)
    • Arizona
    So, what say all of you?

    Thanks as always.

    Come to Toronto.

    Should be warmer then. Culture is insane. Little Italy, GreekTown, ChinaTown, Little India. Amazing food from all.

    It's pretty cheap here. Entertainment is great.

    CN Tower. Skydome.

    Pictures would be great. Plus you can go spend a day in Niagara falls if you've never been. (1 hour drive)

    AND the most important part! You COULD theoretically meet up with a couple of the Toronto TPF Crew....like ME!

    I've been to Toronto and it was really good. The restaurant in the CN Tower is very nice. I remember I had caesar salad for starter can't remember the rest.

    If you should go there bace has suggested places he knows and will bve better to get information off. However along with Niagra falls, definately check out Crawford Lake. Great photo ops, a really tranquil place. It's reasonably close although is the other side of lake ontario which is massive.

    edit>> If you went to crawford lake on the way back at night you can see the CN tower across the lake...just thoguht I'd say.

    I liked San Antonio when I was there.
    It was definitely warm.
    And offered lots of photo ops.
    Actually it was HOT-HOT-HOT. I was there in August 1998.
    And it offered more photo ops that I cared to take ... I rushed from airconditioned indoors to airconditioned indoors (well, not quite, but almost, and also the camera I had at the time was cr**pier than cr**).

    I'm excited to see NOLA! I'll be down the weekend of the 26th of March to see Tulane.

    I second the Florida Keys. If you aren't into Key West you can stay at a key that is farther north (my family usually stays on Marathon) and take a day trip to Key West.

    If you can swing it. Do a Caribbean trip. Check out Bahamas, or AVIs. (St. Thomas, St. John, or St. Croix) no passport needed there.
