What was the best vacation that you ever had. Where did you go? What time of the year was it? How much did it cost? I really need to go on a real vacation and I am looking for ideas on place to go and what to do, along with the cost. I need to know about how much to save for this trip. Any and all ideas would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

Colorado Springs was a very fun vacation my parents took us kids on. I've been other places more fantastic, but it is hard to beat the beauty of Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods. If you search for the best deals and know what you are looking for, then taking a trip to Colorado Springs is very affordable.

Thank you, I will keep this in mind. Pike's peak sounds interesting, plus I do have relatives that live near by.

My best vacation was before New Orleans was hit by Katrina. My fiance and I were there for a week. We stayed in a historic hotel, it was an old coffee factory, with brick walls and the original wood floors. We were within walking distance of Harrah's casino, the French Quarter and the boardwalk. The only down side was that it was so humid and hot! Even so we had such a great time, we did a ghost tour and we walked all over the place doing alot of tours, trying the food out, listening to jazz and meeting lots of friendly people there. We spent about $2000 in 4 days. Las Vegas is a good idea if you plan your vacation from Sunday to Thursday you can get discounted rates on hotels, there are always buffets that are minimal in cost. If you like to have an occasional drink, go to the casino and play the slots or the tables, you get free drinks. I got smart and just started carrying a coin bucket with a few coins in it and got free drinks for awhile. LOL, they also have much more than just gambling, the casino's have resort like atmospheres and alot of them have mini amusement parks in them. The shows are also fabulous! You can get some good packages through discount travel sites like travelocity, expedia and the like. Happy vacation hunting!

Yes, I would love to go to Las vegas, but I am afraid I would really have to save a long time, as I love the slots. Hubby isn't much of a gambler so I would have to do alot of talking. LOL Thank you for responding.

I liked going to South Dakota. I went there when I was little and I loved it. We there is alot to do there. And if you are the one who likes black hills gold then this is also a cheap place to get it. I am thinking about planning a trip to go back with my children.
