Travel Suggestions Needed!

  1. I feel your pain and ‘hatred’ of running – I have a bad hip which excuses me from running (haha!)
    As for your trip…hmmm, it’s a tough one, especially as I haven’t been to ANY of the ones mentioned. Personally I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans…and San Francisco…and…I’m not helping am I? New Orleans!

  2. I vote for New Orleans. Never been there but everyone says I should go…..not during Marci Gras though.
    Nix Miami.
    Charleston is beautiful, but a trip in Bobbi sounds better.

  3. Fly to Montreal, spend a day exploring. Take the train to Quebec City and practice your French language skills and eat like a Queen for two days. Fly home. It will be like a vacation in France over a long weekend.

    1. That is the best suggestion. Who’s Dave? Anyway, we would be picking you up in Mtl and either stay in Mtl for the weekend or drive back home in Québec City. October is so beautiful here! We could be your guides. And guest that: no car location and no hotels. 😀
      We miss you

      1. Dave is our Italy traveling companion, frequent Bridge partner, and non-follower of directions. We would love to visit you and we have talked about doing it in the not too distant future, but I’m afraid it won’t be over the anniversary weekend. Any chance of a Leadville meet-up? We’re thinking of going in mid-June. We miss you guys, too!

    1. … especially Texas. Ha ha! Once again, we have a similar world view. 😉 Albuquerque because it meets the criteria of a direct flight. We were just out road tripping in the southwest this past summer, which included a long awaited repeat stay in Santa Fe, one of my favorite US cities (Taos is up there, too). We had Carlsbad on the itinerary but decided last minute to skip it and attach it to a future itinerary that would also include Guadalupe Mountains National Park (in Texas!). We did do Roswell, White Sands, and a few other places. I think for this 4-day weekend we’re looking at less roaming and more exploring whatever place we’re in.

  4. Lots of great options!! San Francisco is amazing, but agree with you that you will want a few extra days if you are going to do Napa/Sonoma as well. Miami is also great, but it would be tough for me to by that close to Biscayne NP and Dry Tortuga NP and not go diving too. My vote would be Lake Tahoe. I have never been, but have heard it’s amazing. No matter where you go, I can’t wait to read about it!

  5. I can totally relate to this post on many levels! I too, am not fond of running, yet still do it. Ugggg But I LOVE traveling and I have a great recommendation for you. We just went to Savannah for 4 days to celebrate our 25th anniversary and it was a BLAST!

  6. I went to New Orleans for a wedding in October and was pleasantly surprised. Bourbon Street area is a disaster but fun for a one night visit. However, we stayed in the Garden District and loved it. There were walkable streets, neighborhood bars and restaurants, cool architecture, and lots of trees.

    1. Good to know. Thanks for the advice. We are definitely wary of the party atmosphere, as we would not fit in (and you’ve never met anyone as intolerant of noise while sleeping as I am). The garden district sounds nice. I will give it a look.

  7. I know you wrote this nearly two weeks ago and I’m late to the party here but . . .
    Houston is miserable. Crazy traffic, crowded, dirty. The Space Center is o.k. They have some cool stuff. We wouldn’t go again.
    New Orleans – Fabulous!!! Skip Bourbon Street though, its just crowded, touristy, and nasty. Other streets within a block or so offer a better version of the same thing. Eat beignets and have chicory coffee!! We’re good at just wandering though, so we were happy just wandering the city for a couple of days.
    Tahoe: I’ve spent a ton of time in Tahoe (husband’s family used to have a house on the lake). Its pretty. Ummm . . . yeah, that’s about it. There’s hiking and stuff.
    San Francisco: You would have to come up to Sonoma and we could say hi in person!!! It will be cold and foggy in October. Oh, wait, its always cold and foggy!!
    Miami: I LOVE Florida!!! LOVE Cuban food. LOVE the beach and I LOVE humidity (I know, I’m one of the few). I love all of that so much, I’m even willing to put up with the large lizards that roam around (at least they did at the place we stayed).
    And we plan our entire year’s worth of trips in December of the previous year, or January, at the latest.

    1. Wonderful information. It’s interesting – each blogger gives me their own perspective and I learn a little something from each one. Your feelings about NOLA are echoed by many. Thank you so much for your insights!! They will help inform our decision. (And Napa/Sonoma wine tasting is definitely something we want to do, but probably in summertime.)

  8. I’m no fan of Texas, and Houston certainly sucks. But I’ve always wanted to check out San Antonio with it’s Riverwalk, water taxis, great restaurants and shopping… I’ll bet 4 days would be perfect.

  9. I would say Miami or New Orleans. P.S I’ve gone to Florida every hurricane season over the last 3 years and have never had an issue! I will actually be there and going on a cruise in October and am not worried. New Orleans is on my bucket list though!
