Vacation Ideas

Even though our weather is still in winter mode, my mind is in summer mode, which means, vacation!! Ryan and I are thinking about going on a trip somewhere to get away for a long weekend, but aren't sure where to go. Here are a few places we have thought about...

* Houston
 - we've never been there
 - my cousin and her husband live there, so it would be fun to visit

* California
 - I was there about 5 years ago in the Anaheim area and really enjoyed it
 - Ryan was there for a football bowl game for a couple days

* Chicago
 - I've heard lots of good things about visiting here, lots of things to do
 - It's within driving distance from us

Besides that, we haven't really looked into much, so we are open to any suggestions or recommendations! Anybody really like somewhere they have been recently on a vacation or trip?

  1. Chicago is pretty cool but do your research and stay out of the bad areas. But there is a lot to do and the deep dish pizza alone is worth it!

  2. all great ideas! although I vote dallas (that's where I live) over houston! but i am biased like that! chicago is amazing!

  3. Chicago is amazing! There are so many things to do, places to eat, etc. and it would be perfect for a long weekend. It is very walkable too.

  6. My boyfriend & I went to Colorado last May and stayed in a condo in the mountains. It was too warm for skiing but there was still plenty to do. Although it did snow a few times while we were there, I'd maybe wait until July to be able to enjoy the weather a little more!

  7. Chicago is so much fun! My husband's family is from Illinois so every time we go visit, we go up to Chicago for a day. It's fun and has lots of delicious food! :)
