  • We go often. Myrtle Beach is only 90 minutes from us, so we go there for the day a lot. We are hoping, in the next couple of years, to get a camper, so we will go on weekend trips a lot.

  • We do 3 or 4 trips a year. Usually 2 long ones and 1 or 2 shorter trips. 1 trip is always to Buenos Aires to visit my husbands family and we usually stay for 3 to 4 wks. 1 trip is to a destination we want to go to for fun....Maui, Barcelona, Jamaica, Italy - this trip is usually about 10 days. The other 2 mini-vacations we take are usually 4 to 5 days and we keep them with in driving distance or they are very short flights....Disney, Captiva Island, Atlantis in the Bahamas, The Keys (we live in S. FL).

  • We try to go to Maine once per year to visit my pepere (and soon my parents) as well as my best friend (since I was 8). Unfortunately I don't get paid if I don't work so we've only made it up twice in the past 6 years.

  • My husband has lots of vacation, and we have family in other parts of the country, 500 and 2500 miles away. So we usually go for 4-5 trips (3 weeks total) to his family and 1 trip (1 week) to my family every year. Any extra days are for projects or a long weekend in the mountains or beach, which we do maybe twice a year. While visiting family, each week we do maybe 2-4 days of touristy stuff.

    It's cheap (relatively), and I love that family is important, but as the kids get older, I'd like to rip a week off something (probably his family, just due to the balance) and go on a road trip, or visit theme parks or beaches or camping- a longer just-our-family trip! (I don't even mind if some of his huge family comes along for some/part of it, like we meet in the mountains and camp, just that we're somewhere different, not sitting around the same houses talking and eating)

  • First off, DH has a family farm about 3 hours from where we live. We spend most weekends there. When we aren't in the country, I often follow him with our toddler DD to his various conferences and conventions. I work full-time but sometimes will take vacation time to join him. We also try to fit in visits to my family. This summer we are going on a 1.5 week trip to Alabama as well as long weekends to Louisiana, Bryan/College Station, and, hopefully, Memphis to a family wedding.

  • We usually take one longer vacation during the summer and then we'll do several day trips throughout the year.

  • We usually take one vacation a year. Last year we went to St. John VI. We have in the past gone to Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, France... several places overseas. We save all year long for our trips.
