69
Rose July 26, 2013 at 8:22 am

77

78
Cynthia Hartmann July 26, 2013 at 8:25 am

Denise July 26, 2013 at 8:28 am

I’ve been blessed with some great vacations. Ireland and Italy were two of my favorites. I’ve never been to Florida other than to an airport to fly out. This sounds amazing. However, If I won, I’d probably give it to my daughter and son-in-law who lost their first baby. I think they could use a get-away. =)

89
Kimberly Russell July 26, 2013 at 8:28 am

I haven’t been on vacation in 13 years! I guess that is what you get when your married to a farmer! I would have to say that my best “vacation” was the 3-week mission tour I took to Arizona (from WV) the summer of my 10th grade year with a group of 19 people from multiple churches all over the state. I got to see the Grand Canyon, Green Lake Wisconsin, and so many different landscapes you don’t see when living in WV.

90
Kay July 26, 2013 at 8:28 am

My favorite vacation is when my family goes to Japan to visit relatives together – I can’t get enough of the food, haha!

101
Karen July 26, 2013 at 8:31 am

I could not agree with you more, the white sugar sand and emerald waters of Florida’s gulf coast are the best beaches. I am also enjoying them right now in Destin. Just love it, it’s the best and I love when you write about them.

102
Alyssa | Queen of Quinoa July 26, 2013 at 8:32 am

I spent 5 weeks in Costa Rica right after I graduated college and it was an absolutely amazing experience. We traveled all around the country and really had a fantastic time!

103
Diane Mikle July 26, 2013 at 8:33 am

My best vacation would have to be just about anytime I get to visit the gulf. My family and I have been visiting Destin, FL for the past 19 years and we LOVE it! I agree with you that the clear water and white sand beaches are just about the best in the world and being able to spend time there with my husband and children over the years has been wonderful. If I could, I would move to the Gulf Coast!

104
Kelly July 26, 2013 at 8:33 am

Best vacation is coming up in September – My honeymoon to Key West, Cayman Islands, and Jamaica!!!!!

Our honeymoon to Paris and then Greece! AMAZING! So glad we had that time before kids came along, because I don’t think it will happen again!

110
JNE July 26, 2013 at 8:34 am

When I first met my husband and we were dating, we went to Italy. We stayed in super cheapo rooms with shared bathrooms and we were on a super-tight budget, but it was an amazing trip.

111
Erin July 26, 2013 at 8:35 am

Best vacation was my honeymoon to Puerto Vallarta!!!

112
Katy July 26, 2013 at 8:35 am

My best vacation ever was when I earned a trip to Disneyworld. However, Disney wasn’t the best part. We stayed in Mexico Beach, FL for three days before heading to Orlando. It was so relaxing! We look forward to going back.

113
Andi B July 26, 2013 at 8:35 am

My best vacation ever was probably one to Disney World. I love that place-how it makes me feel young again!

117
Dawn July 26, 2013 at 8:37 am

It was Disney World and Universal in 2002. All the kiddo’s were still little and my former husband and I shared probably the best ten days of our whole marriage. I will remember that time fondly forever! Sadly it was one of our last vacations as a happy family. I’d give anything to make my four kids little again. Miss those days!

118
Hilda July 26, 2013 at 8:37 am

Best holiday: Road trip with my friend, we flew into Miami and drove to LA and back over 3 weeks visiting all the cool and quirky places in between. Such an interesting and diverse landscape over there, amazing!

123
Jen Osborne July 26, 2013 at 8:37 am

Best vacation ever was a trip to Belize spent at Jaguar Paw Resort. It was privately owned by an American then and more personal than the commercial company that bought it. The grounds of the resort are so beautiful and with cave tubing and hiking you can stay busy for days. Mayan ruins are not far and our guide was working on his Phd in anthropology.

124
Melinda July 26, 2013 at 8:38 am

I love to travel and have been to Europe, the Middle East, all over the USA and Canada; but the best vacation I ever had may have just been the one I went on. It’s been a difficult year for me, caring for my grandma who has many ailments, including Alzheimer’s. Also for my best girlfriends (we’ve been friends since elementary school!) – some have seen the end of their marriage, other have dealt with the loss of loved ones, and others with children who are going through very difficult circumstances. So, the six of us just spent four days together at a lake house in Maryland. We cooked together, watched movies, played games, and went hiking. It was such a relaxing, refreshing time for all of us. Yes, that was the best vacation ever and I’d love to do a “repeat” of it in Seaside, Florida!

125
Kristy July 26, 2013 at 8:38 am

My favorite vacation was this spring when hubby and I took our 2 boys and doggy to Florida. They all loved the beach!!!

126

130
jenifer July 26, 2013 at 8:42 am

Best Vacation Ever???? The 10 days we spent in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The warm salty breeze, white sand, and clear Gulf waters made it heaven on earth. I can close my eyes and still feel like I am right there on the beach.

131
Victoria July 26, 2013 at 8:42 am

I went with my now husband (then boyfriend) to his family reunion in Michigan five years ago. While the trip itself wasn’t anything special, when we got back home, he proposed!!!!

132
Amanda G. July 26, 2013 at 8:43 am

137
Kelly Jo July 26, 2013 at 8:45 am

Best vacation ever- Grand Bahamas for my honeymoon- it was a comedy of errors starting off and that helped make it memorable. Plus, it was 3 months after 9/11 and not many people were traveling much in those months so we essentially had the resort to ourselves. It was wonderful.

138
christy July 26, 2013 at 8:45 am

My best vacation was in May of 2012 went I visited Germany & France. It was a 2-week trip that was part of my undergraduate degree in Business Administration. We visited many different companies, such as Audi, Mercedes, the European Parliament, UPS and so much more. I learned so much and was able to see these companies in ways that most would never see. In addition, we definitely visited classic and historic sites, such as the Eiffel Tower, Palace of Versailles, Notre Dame, and the Cathedral of Strasbourg. All in all, this trip allowed me to take in so much in so little time, as well as creating memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

170
Diane July 26, 2013 at 8:55 am

I don’t really have a best vacation destination. For me it’s getting away and having time to relax and soak up the sun. I am a hot vacation person, so the weather on vacation needs to be warm to enjoy being outside. Time to get away, spend time with my husband and some sightseeing.

171
Holly S July 26, 2013 at 8:56 am

Let’s see…probably the BEST fun vacation I’ve been on was a family wedding in upstate New York followed by 3 days at Niagara Falls…we ate dinner at the restaurant that slowly spins from the US to the Canadian side…it was so romantic!!! The BEST most meaningful vacation I’ve been on was just recently I went home to take care of my dad who got quite sick after surgery. I spent 12 weeks with him-most of the time just the 2 of us-I learned so much about him during our talks and I feel closer to him than I ever have. This time was a gift and the best 12 week “vacation” of my lift.

172
Sara Palacios July 26, 2013 at 8:56 am

My best trip ever was my honeymoon in Whistler, Canada!! We went skiing and I often think about that trip and reminisce.

My best vacation ever was when my husband and I visited the south of Maine almost ten years ago. A friend/colleague of mine has a house on the shore. It’s been in his family since the 30’s I think. It was late September/early October and I had found out I was expecting our first child earlier in the month. It was a euphoric time and although I slept A LOT! we still managed to have a great time exploring Maine and soaking up the water and the waves (mostly from inside). It was dreamy to be there and talk about our little one who would be arriving the following May. Now I am crying…I better stop. :) Thanks for the opportunity Kevin and Amanda!!

My best vacation ever was when my husband and I, at this time we had been dating for almost a year, I surprised him with a trip to visit him (he was attending school in Vegas at the time at UNLV) and I at Ole Miss. I booked the ticket and told him two days before- I found the fare luckily very inexpensive. He in turn surprised me when I landed in Vegas. He had a jeep wrangler rented for us and a hotel on the beach of Laguna. We roadtripped the next morning through Nevada and California. It was our best vacation ever. It was so enjoyable to see the sights of the desert and ocean with the top down of the Wrangler and just spend quality time together. During the 3 day trip we drove from Laguna to other local beaches and had a blast. We just got married this June and it is still one of our favorite memories.

Shannon @ Paper Made Bakery July 26, 2013 at 9:14 am

All vacations are wonderful – relaxing, family/friends, food & culture of wherever you are! A particularly wonderful vacation was had in New Zealand decades ago…but enjoying one in Seaside, FL would also give me the chance to see my grandmother and aunt, whom I’ve not seen in a very long time. What a great family vacation that would be — thanks for the chance!

275
tammy July 26, 2013 at 9:14 am

Best vacation ever? A week in Orlando with my kids in 2002!!

276
Cindy P July 26, 2013 at 9:14 am

I had to forgo my annual week vacation in Madison, AL to visit my sister this year due to job conflicts. I would love, love, love to meet up with her here. In the past, we have driven to the Alabama Shores, taken long drives through various Alabama cities but the best part of those vacations is just being with my sister that one time of year. Thank you for this amazing opportunity!

277
JoDe July 26, 2013 at 9:14 am

My best vacation was to Paradise Island in the Bahamas. So much fun yet relaxing.

278
Kerry July 26, 2013 at 9:15 am

Best vacation I ever had was my honeymoon. We flew to Italy and took a cruise around Italy, Greece and Turkey. It was a trip of a lifetime. I took over 1,000 pictures!

279
Mandee J July 26, 2013 at 9:15 am

Lake Michigan with my family!

284
Stephanie DeArco July 26, 2013 at 9:16 am

I don’t really have a best vacation ever but I grew up in Fort Walton Beach, Florida and that is where I call home. Now being a military family we most likely won’t go home for Christmas so this would be an awesome vacation home!!! <3

285
Cyndi July 26, 2013 at 9:16 am

Best vaca ever…the trip we just returned from…taking our kids to travel around Europe for the first time – so much fun! Although, I have really loved all of our family vacations!!

286
Rebecca July 26, 2013 at 9:16 am

I am hoping my best vacation ever will be in a couple of weeks. We are taking my 10-yr old daughter and 75-yr old mother to Florida for the first time. I am hoping for lots of relaxation, pleasant sunshine and bonding family time.

287
Angela Thomas July 26, 2013 at 9:16 am

In 2004, I spent in Los Cabos, Mexico with my brother and sister-in-law. We had a blast! We rode ATVs in the desert, drank margaritas and relaxed by the pool.

288
Julie July 26, 2013 at 9:17 am

A last minute unexpected family trip to Hilton Head! Our family couldn’t afford a vacation at the time, but needed one desperately. A friend couldn’t use their time-share last minute, offered it to us at only the cost of the $200 transfer fee….we scored a week in Hilton Head at an amazing resort! One of the most amazing blessings….it did wonders for our family! My heart still overflows with gratefulness everything I think I about it!

289
Ivana B. July 26, 2013 at 9:17 am

My best vacation ever was our honeymoon at Disney World Florida! We also had a chance to visit Clearwater beach which was close by and we fell in love with the white sugar sand beaches!

290
Nicole July 26, 2013 at 9:17 am

Best vacation ever was going to Paris and having my fiance propose to me.

291
Crystal July 26, 2013 at 9:17 am

So far, our best vacations have probably been Disney World – so much fun with kids! I would love to go Italy someday though – I think that would trump Orlando!

292
Melissa July 26, 2013 at 9:17 am

Our best vacation was to the white sugar sand beaches of Destin, Florida. I would give anything to go back!

293
Teresa Hall July 26, 2013 at 9:18 am

Heading from blazing hot Alabama to Bar Harbor, Maine two weeks before my son left for his freshman year at Auburn. A beautiful place, a special time in the life of our small family, and we were wearing windbreakers to eat lobster dinners while it was over 100 degrees at home!

294
kristie s July 26, 2013 at 9:18 am

Best vacation–so hard! Many different memories made on each one (the best part about vacation!).
We recently took a family trip for the first time with our girls to Milwaukee WI. My husband and I have actually been to Disney World (without kids) and that was a blast! What a tricky question, but a great one, as it allows me to go back and remember about the different places we have been.

295
Nyoka July 26, 2013 at 9:18 am

My best vacation ever was Cancun with my bff and it’s been sooooo long ago. It’s time for another vacation!

304
Amy Frye July 26, 2013 at 9:20 am

Honestly I have never been on a vacation that would rank with any of these described above. I’ve been to local amusement parks and things, but never on a real full blown vacation.

305
Letitia July 26, 2013 at 9:20 am

Best vacation ever was a cruise that made stops in St. Martin and Puerto Rico.

The best vacation I ever went on, was when my grandfather took my mother and I back to where he was stationed in Germany when he was serving in the Air Force. We made some incredible memories, including finding some locals that he knew when he was there. It was absolutely, hands down, the most memorable trip!

311

I once won a whirlwind weekend in Paris from a local radio station – it was the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me!

318
Sandra W July 26, 2013 at 9:23 am

My best vacation ever was being with my family and friends in the gorgeous Bahamas!
We stayed at Marsh Harbor and rented a little boat and then island hopped all day long from one island to the next island enjoying all the delicious food and drinks and snorkeling each island had to offer. One of my family members stated “and Columbus turned around and went back . Why”.
Wonderful, wonderful memories!!

328
Kelley July 26, 2013 at 9:24 am

Dawn M. July 26, 2013 at 9:27 am

My best vacation ever was taking my two children (6 & 2) to Disney World. We were fortunate that my parents were able to go with us. It was a magical trip! We can’t wait to go back when the 2 year old is older and can do more.

342

France and Spain!

343
Karrie July 26, 2013 at 9:27 am

365
Ashley N. July 26, 2013 at 9:32 am

My best vacation ever was a trip just down the road to Georgia one year during Spring break. It was full of fun & memories with great friends.

366
Kristi Bell July 26, 2013 at 9:32 am

This would be perfect since our Palm Spring vacation got cancelled because of the fire last week.

367
Danyiel J July 26, 2013 at 9:33 am

Honeymoon in Ireland nearly 6 years ago.

370
Tracey Demuynck July 26, 2013 at 9:33 am

Disney was our best vacation ever!

371

My best vacation ever was my honeymoon in a house perched on a cliff over the Pacific in northern CA.

372
Jen July 26, 2013 at 9:34 am

When I was young we went to Mississippi to visit my aunt & uncle (my uncle was in the air force and they were stationed in Biloxi) – we visited them for a bit and then went over to Florida to go to Disneyworld – and my aunt & uncle came for a visit there. It was SO much fun. Gosh, this was probably in the mid 80s. Best vacay ever. I have so many awesome memories of vacations in Florida. It’s my favorite place to go. (Haven’t been since 94 though! Sad!)

373
Ashleigh July 26, 2013 at 9:34 am

Anytime we go to the beach!!!

374
Kim July 26, 2013 at 9:34 am

377
Heather Carlile July 26, 2013 at 9:35 am

I think our best vacation ever was taking our princess obsessed 3-year old to Disneyland for the first time. What a feeling to see joy and wonder and excitement through the eyes of my baby. :)

378
Katie July 26, 2013 at 9:35 am

My BEST vacation ever was the beach vacation I took along with 20 members of my family this year. There is nothing like being with family!

379
Brandi williams July 26, 2013 at 9:35 am

My favorite “place” I’ve been is charleston/folly beach sc. But for overall vacation experience, there are many and for different reasons. My spring breaks with college friends, my first “family” vacation with my own family, or my childhood trips with my parents and extended families, even the yearly “women’s” beach trip for all the adult women in my family. All hold a special place in my heart.

380
danielle July 26, 2013 at 9:35 am

So hard to choose! I will have to pick one of the most recent trips we took to Miami Florida…..from there we took a quickie cruise to Grand Bahama Island where we did some amazing snorkeling!!

381
Mary N July 26, 2013 at 9:35 am

My best vacation was a family trip with our adult children and first grand child in 1997 – visiting Orlando (from Buffalo, NY). We had so much fun :)

384
Linda H July 26, 2013 at 9:36 am

The best vacation was St Thomas and St John US Virgin Islands.

385
Sarah Austin July 26, 2013 at 9:36 am

I love going to Phoenix. I have family there so I get special tours, and a ride along with my cop cousin. I love the heat, and the desert, and all the great hiking. BUT I’m a huge ocean lover too if I get the chance, just don’t get to it very often.

386
Melanie Eccles July 26, 2013 at 9:37 am

Going to Washington DC for a week with my husband and staying at a hotel on Capitol Hill!

387
Leah K July 26, 2013 at 9:38 am

My best vacation was our honeymoon on a beach in FL; love falling asleep to the sound of the waves.

388
jaime b. July 26, 2013 at 9:39 am

Honestly, we just don’t travel enough :( We’ve been married 13 years and I can count on one hand how many trips we’ve taken. But I will say, our honeymoon to Oregon, many moons ago, was pretty darn fun! I absolutely love Oregon! Never been to Florida though :)

389
Esther T. July 26, 2013 at 9:39 am

My best vacation was a trip I took with my mom to Europe. It was many years ago, and she has now passed, but I have so many lovely memories that will stay with me forever.

390
Jenn July 26, 2013 at 9:39 am

I wish I could say Seaside, Florida but I have never been there! Our favorite vacation is going to LBI with my entire family plus aunts, uncles, and cousins. It makes for an incredible week because our families live all over the country – Minnesota, Texas, California, New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts – we just don’t see each other often.

391
Gay H July 26, 2013 at 9:40 am

Best vacation ever was at a condo on a beach in west Maui!

392
Amy N July 26, 2013 at 9:40 am

Vieques, Puerto Rico – most beautiful beaches!

393
Marjorie July 26, 2013 at 9:40 am

My best and favorite vacation was going to Hawaii two years ago. I have always wanted to go and the island didn’t dissapoint.

394
Demare July 26, 2013 at 9:40 am

Best vacation ever: a trip to the Rose Bowl to see my Texas Longhorns win the National Championship! However, every trip to the beach is a close second…

395

The best vacation I’ve ever had was a road trip that my grandparents took me and my cousins across the US and Canada.

396
Kaitlynn July 26, 2013 at 9:40 am

397
Jamie July 26, 2013 at 9:42 am

Astoria Oregon, it was gorgeous!!

398
Mercedes July 26, 2013 at 9:42 am

We loved going to Disney World for my daughter’s 4th birthday a couple of years ago – it was so much fun to act like a kid all week!

399
Teresa Kaufhold July 26, 2013 at 9:42 am

My favorite vacation was a cruise with my family about 10 years ago. The kids were old enough to go off and do some of the activities on the boat and gave us time to have time alone!

400
Kelley July 26, 2013 at 9:42 am

Venice, Italy, with my mom!

401
Joy Bassett July 26, 2013 at 9:42 am

My best vacation was a honeymoon cruise!

402
Amy B. July 26, 2013 at 9:43 am

We always have great vacations in the South Walton area, but my best was almost two weeks in Italy!

403
Michelle G July 26, 2013 at 9:43 am

Best vacation ever was a 7 day cruise that we took 7 years ago! It forced both my husband and I to really relax. We haven’t had a week off in 5 years, so this long weekend would be fabulous!

404
Cathy July 26, 2013 at 9:43 am

Disney World at Christmas time.

405
Renee July 26, 2013 at 9:44 am

Jacie S. July 26, 2013 at 9:44 am

I would say Disney world! Cant wait to go back and make more memories!

407
PattiNC July 26, 2013 at 9:44 am

My best vacation ever was when my boys just had graduated high school and college, we (husband included) took a sight seeing tour to Washington DC. It was just the greatest time!

408
Missy July 26, 2013 at 9:44 am

Best Vacation: traveled to New Orleans when we only had one child — exploring the Garden area, ran a 5K, and enjoyed hours of walking. Since that vacation we have added three more children and no vacations. We are in need of a family getaway.

409
Leanne July 26, 2013 at 9:45 am

My husband and I went to Disney World in October for our honeymoon (several years ago!) and it was awesome! We were there for the wine and food festival! Amazing!

410
Rita July 26, 2013 at 9:45 am

About 13 years ago my hubby, & 2 children at the time (7 yrs & 22 months) around my birthday, we took a 14 day European trip & drove over 3200 miles to see France, Italy, Austria, Germany & Luxembourg.

Paradise Island Bahamas – this was our Honeymoon 25 years ago this November and we haven’t had a REAL vacation since. :( FL sounds like the perfect 25th Anniversary gift to my awesome hubby! :)

Best Vacation EVER… Hawaii for our 5 year anniversary!

415
Kelly July 26, 2013 at 9:46 am

Disney World with friends and family! Perfect for the child at heart (like me) and then we spent the weekend at the beach, ending with fireworks over the water.

416
Sharmin July 26, 2013 at 9:46 am

We took a family vacation to Colorado 8 years ago (5 of us & in-laws, 11 total). It was a great time, and we celebrated my youngest’s 1st birthday in Ouray, CO. Two years ago the kids and I drove to Florida for a wedding and short vacation, but the hubs didn’t get to go….:(

417
Kathleen Schott July 26, 2013 at 9:46 am

My best vacation EVER was when I surprised my husband with a trip to the Bahamas for his 50th Birthday at a surprise party to celebrate his 50th. An all inclusive 7 day trip and our hotel room was directly on the beach with sliding doors opening to the beach.

418
Jennifer July 26, 2013 at 9:47 am

Each Labor Day weekend, my college girlfriends and I go to 30A. Each year, it fills my soul!!

419
Jen July 26, 2013 at 9:47 am

My best vacation so far was the 10th anniversary trip my husband and I took to Maui last year. Can’t wait to go back!

420
Heather Lanxton July 26, 2013 at 9:47 am

My best vacation would have to be anywhere I can be with our whole family – beach, Disney – wherever!

421
Jill J July 26, 2013 at 9:47 am

I don’t think I’ve had my best vacation ever … yet! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some great vacations, but I am truly looking forward to an upcoming vacation – this might be the best vacation! You see, I surprised my soon to be 82 yo Mom by booking a cruise to the Caribbean over Thanksgiving this year. She has never taken a vacation of this kind, never been on a cruise or out of the country, so this is a HUGE deal for her and with her advancing age may be the only one like this.
Her excitement for this surprise trip and all the adventures it will hold, I believe, will make this my Best Vacation ever!

422
Teresa Millar July 26, 2013 at 9:48 am

Maui, absolutely. Would love to take my husband to Seaside, he’s a big fan of “The Truman Show”!!

423

Best vacation ever was my honeymoon – we went to London and Paris. No agenda, since we’d both been before. We just got to hit our favorites – so fun!

425
Alma Barrron July 26, 2013 at 9:49 am

426
Brynne@TheGatheredHome July 26, 2013 at 9:49 am

We just took our best vacation ever this summer – Gulf Shores, Alabama. It was right at the beginning of the summer, so it wasn’t too busy, the weather wasn’t too hot, and we ate SUCH GOOD FOOD! Perfect!

427

430
caree July 26, 2013 at 9:49 am

435
Candace July 26, 2013 at 9:51 am

My first trip to the ocean is one of my favorite vacations. We are landlocked here in TN so seeing the ocean for the 1st time (in Corpus Christi, TX) was a huge highlight!! I was around 12 years old. We would LOVE to win this and have the opportunity to take our little one to see the ocean!

436

The beauty of that place was stunning. Would love to spend more time there!

438
Allison Troyer July 26, 2013 at 9:52 am

The BEST vacation we ever took was to Rothenburg, Germany. We went around Thanksgiving so we could go to the Christmas Markets. My Mom and I took our favorite wines we’d bought while there and kept them in the trunk of our car. We’d take a break from sight seeing, go back to the car, have a glass of wine, and just relax. It was SOO MUCH FUN!!!

439

Laura July 26, 2013 at 9:54 am

I thought about the two weeks in Italy, but the people really do make the vacation, so I have to go with a little trip I took on the spur of the moment with my mom and my sister to the beach. It was absolutely fantastic.

447
Sarah Preston July 26, 2013 at 9:54 am

My favorite vacation ever was when my family rented a beach house on St. George Island after I graduated college. It’s like Seaside, only smaller and more deserted! Loved it.

448
Jaimie July 26, 2013 at 9:55 am

I have not gone far from home for vacations, but the ones that stick out in my mind are the camping trips with my family. That is the best time, just sitting around talking and enjoying each other.

458
Marcella July 26, 2013 at 9:58 am

Best vacation – oh I have a couple but I did enjoy the 10 days traveling the east coast. We flew into Boston, saw whales off the Province Town, Plymouth rock, then onto and stopping at several places towards Bangor Maine. We saw so much and totally loved everything.

Would love to win this one – the pictures shown by Amanda and Kevin are wonderful and it looks beautiful.
Thanks for the chance!

462
Diane July 26, 2013 at 9:58 am

My best vacation ever was our two week trip to Europe. We visited London, France, Switzerland, Italy. Being only 25 years old and to experience so much history and beauty was amazing.

463
Colene E July 26, 2013 at 9:58 am

Italy was the best vacation, mixed in with a little bit of work!

464
Elizabeth C. July 26, 2013 at 9:59 am

My best vacation ever was when my family and I took a trip to Treasure Island Florida. My then boyfriend came along on the trip and he ended up proposing to me right there in our oceanfront rental home! I will never forget that trip and the happiness I felt! That same trip a dolphin came out of the ocean and splashed my husband in the face with his tail while he was fishing on the dock. Florida holds a special place in my heart because of all the happy memories I have had there. ♥

465

Katie Stovall July 26, 2013 at 9:59 am

Best vacation ever….Sandals Montego Bay…which was our honeymoon! As soon as I saw pictures of Seaside, I said to myself “that water looks just like Jamaica!!!!” We’d love to go recreate our honeymoon in Seaside.

Lori East July 26, 2013 at 10:01 am

My husband spontaneously took me on a road trip two years ago (we hadn’t been married long) to take me to see mountains for the first time. We drove through Arkansas & up winding roads to reach the top. We got out at each stop along the way and walked down small trails and enjoyed all the scenery.

475
Teresa DeYoung July 26, 2013 at 10:01 am

477
Amy July 26, 2013 at 10:02 am

My favorite vacation was a week-long stay with my entire extended family in Santa Rosa Beach about 3 years ago. It was great to spend so much time with people I really love. The weather was gorgeous, the beach fantastic, and being with family…so, so memorable.

478
Stephanie July 26, 2013 at 10:03 am

Cruise in the Eastern Caribbean with my husband prior to having kids.

480
Cissy July 26, 2013 at 10:04 am

Any vacation where I’m not expected to cook and clean for the family is a favorite. LOL I love the beaches in FL and the mountains in TN and NC. I love calm and relaxed vacations. Thanks for the chance at winning!

488
Kirsten July 26, 2013 at 10:06 am

My best vacation ever was a trip I took with my paternal grandmother, my mother, and my two boys during the summer of 2011. It made memories to last a lifetime and allowed my boys to spend precious time with their great grandmother! It just happened that we visited SEASIDE and fell in love with the town! We’d love to go back and this opportunity would fulfill that desire!

489
Michelle G July 26, 2013 at 10:08 am

My best vacation ever was last year when I took my honeymoon in Cabo san Lucas! I love the beach!!

491
Courtney July 26, 2013 at 10:08 am

Our best trip was a group trip to Disney World two years ago. Good times!

497
Candice S. in Colorado July 26, 2013 at 10:11 am

Our trip to Disneyland when our daughter was 4-years-old was amazing! It was so awesome watching her take in all of the things going on around her. It was just the best time of my life!!!

498
Catherine July 26, 2013 at 10:11 am

The best vacation that my family has ever taken is 8 days in Orlando, Florida. We went to all of the Disney Parks and ended up just having a fabulous time.

503
Sarah Baker July 26, 2013 at 10:12 am

Best vacation ever was our honeymon… going to Carmel Valley, CA. We got pregnant after that, so I would love to take another vacation with our now 1 year old!!!!!! She loves water and I’ve never been to Seaside. I can’t imagine how she would react seeing the ocean for the first time! What a gift this giveaway would be!

504
Charlene Morton July 26, 2013 at 10:12 am

Honeymoon in Cocoa Beach, FL — I’m a FL addict! :)

505
Leigh Ann July 26, 2013 at 10:12 am

Best VACATION(S) ever were the week-long visits my family made to the beaches in Panama City, Florida every summer. We spent time relaxing by the pool, walking along the shore, taking turns fixing meals in each family member’s room, and always visited Miralce Strip Amusement Park. The highlight at Miracle Strip was riding the ferris wheel with my grandfather. No one else would do! Great memories to hold onto since grandparents are no longer living and families have grown up and moved on to other vacations!

506
Lisa B July 26, 2013 at 10:14 am

Best trip to date would have to be our first trip to Disney World with our three little girls.

507
Katherine July 26, 2013 at 10:14 am

Best vacation ever was a road trip up the Norther California coast… here’s to hoping that an Eat Coast trip is in my future. Thanks for the fun giveaways this week!

508
Maureen July 26, 2013 at 10:14 am

We’ve only gone on one vacation in 20 years and that was a quick four-day trip to Mount Rushmore this summer. It was beyond wonderful. Although the scenery was magnificent (Badlands, scenic drives, Mount Rushmore), what I’ll remember the most is how much we enjoyed our family time. Nothing can beat that!

509
Ashley green July 26, 2013 at 10:14 am

The best vacation I’ve had was in the Dominican Republic…it’s so beautiful!

510
Margaret July 26, 2013 at 10:15 am

Our best vacation ever was our first trip to California to see our son and daughter in law. We did so much that I literally asked my husband if we were doing too much! HA! They lived in Pacific Grove which is hands down (there and Monterey) my favorite location ever! We drove along the gorgeous Hwy 1 coast, visited Cannery Row and Pebble Beach. We walked along the beach to restaurants from their house and did 2 days trips alone – San Francisco taking in Alcatraz and then to San Simeon taking in a tour of Hearst Castle! We all (including the dog) went for the weekend to Yosemite, which had the most majestic sites I’d ever seen.

511
Denise O. July 26, 2013 at 10:15 am

Well hopefully after I win this one this will be it, but so far the best vacation has been a fall tour through New England. The color in the leaves and the simplicity of the towns was absolutely magical. I dream of living in that area and away from the Texas heat one day.

512
Chatelaine July 26, 2013 at 10:15 am

Best vacation ever has been Costa Rica I think.

513

Disney World!!

515
Tonia R July 26, 2013 at 10:16 am

To be honest, after 40 years I’ve never taken an actual vacation. Whenever I take time off I spend it cleaning the house or washing laundry or essentially becoming a hermit and holing up in my house for a week decompressing from work. My dream vacation is to go to Ireland. I think I should start planning for that now. Sharing how uneventful my vacation life up till now has been was an eye opener!

516
Tammie July 26, 2013 at 10:16 am

I would love to relax in such beautiful surroundings.

517
BarbB July 26, 2013 at 10:16 am

We just got back from Orange Beach, AL. I love OBA. It really is the best. However, I’m sure Seaside is just as great since it’s pretty much the same sand and same warm gulf water!

518
Elizabeth July 26, 2013 at 10:17 am

The best vacation I have had was 3 years ago we were able to go to Rosemary beach and stay at a friends house. Our whole family went. It was the first vacation my dad was able to go on with us in years. He loved it. It is one of the best memories I have of my dad.

519
Melanie July 26, 2013 at 10:17 am

Any vacation at all sounds amazing right now, but one of my very favorites was when my husband and I went to Florida for a week when he came home from his 13-month deployment, and then we turned around and took the kids to Disneyland. Loved it!

520
AmyT July 26, 2013 at 10:17 am

523
Cara July 26, 2013 at 10:18 am

My husband surprised me for our 3 year anniversary and took me back to Italy. He planned everything, got a villa, car and booked dinners and tours at some our favorite vineyards and restaurants! It was amazing and relaxing!

524
Mayumi July 26, 2013 at 10:18 am

Best vacation ever – honeymoon to Aruba!

525
Leslie July 26, 2013 at 10:18 am

my best vacation EVER was one to Italy where we traveled around for a few weeks and just sort of relaxed through the vacation rather than pressing to get so much done. I feel like i just came back with a better attitude and understanding of the culture when I took the time to be in it, rather than going to museum after museum.

526
Kim Catapano July 26, 2013 at 10:18 am

The Best vacation that I’ve ever had was 2 years ago when I went to Oahu, Hawaii. I had the time of my life and because of that trip, I want to move to Hawaii!!!

Kathryn July 26, 2013 at 10:21 am

533
Julie Walker July 26, 2013 at 10:22 am

Best vacation with kids was surprising them with a week at Disney World!

Best vacation without kids was the Mediterranean Cruise my hubby won from work!

534
Emma B. July 26, 2013 at 10:23 am

As a young, recently newlywed couple my husband and I’s first vacation (after our honeymoon) was to Washington, D.C. We had the best time because we were off “on our own” and there were so many things to do for free that we barely spent any money!

535
Denise G July 26, 2013 at 10:23 am

Best vacation was a 25th anniversary trip with my hubby to the Dominican Republic! <3

Best Vacation . . . my husband and I haven’t been on a vacation just the two of us in over 10 years. At this point I think the best vacation would be one where we get to spend undivided attention with each other.

697
Kelly M. July 26, 2013 at 11:40 am

My favorite vacation was really a trip that my husband and I took for a wedding. It was held in RI in the town that we met in. It was so nice to see friends and have us all be back “in town”. Great memories from that time in our life.

Best vacation.. hmm.. I think it was 2 years ago when we rented a car–headed from Seattle to Disneyland–but stopped in San Fran, bought a city pass there and enjoyed our stay–then went on to Disney for a day, then Hollywood and all the other fun sites.. then driving back we were trying to make it back in a day. I was driving and gave up, pulled over and we stayed in the best hotel (with the best deal) of the whole time. We still talk about that vacation today! :)

710
Marilyn July 26, 2013 at 11:44 am

We took a 2 week vacation driving east from Eugene, Oregon to Idaho, up the panhandle to Bonners Ferry and crossing over into Montana where we visited Glacier National Park and St. Mary’s Lake, then down to Browning, where we spent 3 hours wandering in awe through one of the best American Indian museums I have ever seen. We then proceeded south, more or less into Wyoming and camped at Yellowstone Park. It was an unforgettable trip!

745

755
lori peuterbaugh July 26, 2013 at 12:23 pm

We have had so many WONDERFUL vacations because we were all together as a family and to me that is what it is all about. But in 2005 my mom took all 19 of us (herself, her 5 children, 4 spouses and 9 grandchildren) on a Disney Cruise. The cruise was fine, the resort stay before and after was good, but the fact that we were ALL together was the high point. It had been 5 years since our dad has passed away and mom wanted for us to all move forward individually and as a family and live life. We had some rough times leading up to his passing and it took some time for healing….
Well, on that trip our youngest brother and his wife realized that they were expecting their third child and mom & dad’s TENTH grandchild!! Talk about a souvenir!!! It was a once in a lifetime trip and probably it will never be recreated, but IT WAS GOOD!!!!

756
Lauren W. July 26, 2013 at 12:25 pm

My honeymoon in Negril, Jamaica was my favorite vacation! We’ll be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary in a few weeks – a trip to Seaside, FL would be perfect! :)

757

Visiting Destin Fl in 1984 before Seaside was developed. Stayed on 30 A and fell in love. Lots have changed but we still go back every year. You just can’t beat those sugar white beaches. I will also never forget having New Years Brunch at Bud & Allys and looking at that beautiful ocean, there was not a wave in sight-looked like glass.

So many good ones but I loved the year we went to Ireland. My husband and daughter came for the first 4 days then my cousin and I stayed for another 2 weeks. No plans…. We made decisions daily on where we wanted to go. Our “theme” for the trip was “All roads lead somewhere!”

827

My most favorite vacation has a tie for two: I LOVED visiting Costa Rica where my aunt and her husband had built a beach-view home, just the relaxing culture and fresh food! However, I also loved visiting Seattle, WA for my husband and my first year anniversary in 2007 – we both enjoyed exploring the city together, still feeling like newlyweds!

We dream of going back someday!

Bringing my 11 1/2 month old baby daughter to Florida to visit my parents. We took a side trip to beautiful Gasparilla Island. The carefree, happy days we spent there are forever etched in my memory. I think this trip forever sealed my daughter’s love for the sea! The enchantment and awe in her eyes as we watched wave after wave roll over the sand, washing up shells and other treasures was something I will never forget. She is 19 now but that memory will never fade for me!
