So Many Places, So Little Time...

Planning our summer vacation now. We have to make the obligatory trip to visit my M-I-L in New York City; this will make it our gazillionth time in NYC (no offense to NYC but I really would like to see other places in the USA as well :)). We'll probably have to limit ourselves to road trips on the Eastern coast of the USA within reasonable driving distance from Manhattan. Anyhoo, am looking at Martha's Vineyard (seems pretty enough on the websites that I've seen but don't want to end up going to a tourist trap), Providence (am attracted by the town from what I saw in the short-lived but excellent series a few years ago), Newport (hubby trained there while in the US Navy, & says it's a pretty town). Maybe I should also look south & see what's there.

Kids & husband don't really care as long as they get to make their pilgrimage to Matt Umanov (a guitar store that has been in the Village area forever). Of course, Woodbury Commons (factory outlet stores!!) is a must. Maybe a Broadway musical (been trying to get Lion King tickets for the longest time....seems to be perpetually sold-out...I guess I should start trying to get tickets NOW).

There are soooo many places in the world that I'd love to visit - horseback riding in the Canadian Rockies; cruising down the Nile; riding a camel to the pyramids; a safari in Kenya...these are some of my dream vacations. Oh well, one of these days...

Why not sponsor your MIL to one of these exotic holidays? You & Family get to have your dream vacation and also spent quality time with MIL. : )

Good suggestion...but knowing my MIL (who is reluctanct to step out of Manhattan, let alone, out of the country!) it wouldn't be a great time for her (or us!)
