Summer 2016 -- Any travel plans?

Summer 2016 is already fast approaching.

Do you have any travel plans?

In May I'll be heading to Las Vegas for a few days.

But, I have a big 21 day trip planned for June.

7 days in Thailand, 7 days in Bali and lastly 7 in Shanghai. Trying to attend the grand opening of Shanghai Disneyland.

Lots of awesome food and sights. Really looking forward to it. Have been saving like crazy to make this happen.

What about the rest of you?

Technically Hawaii is in the US.

Going to the East Coast in the spring, but just going down the West Coast in the summer. Hoping to hit Europe next year.

August 2016: Minnesota to Wyoming to Montana to Canada...

Re-visit several National Parks including Grand Tetons, Glacier then up to Canada to see Banff.

I'm also considering a June 2016 trip to Maine to see Acadia National Park then back down through Pennsylvania to see Gettysburg and the United 93 Memorial.

I have the last 2 weeks in June and the last 2 weeks in August off...so plenty of time to travel.

Re: Summer 2016 -- Any travel plans?

Going to go on a trip with my 12 year old daughter alone for the first time. Decided to make it yearly. I'm up in the air between Washington DC and NYC. Even bringing in Seattle and San Francisco as possibilities. Need to decide soon since I'll need to book a flight.

LOL...yeah people forget that. A few years ago we took some friends to Oahu to show them around. My friend's wife made a comment to a cashier at an ABC convenience store ending with something like "...well in America it's different."

The lady behind the counter gave her a strange look and said, "This is America."

I turned around pretending not to know her.

Yes I'm aware Hawai'i is part of the U.S. But, since it's a 6 hour flight from LAX to Honolulu and the islands are on their own, I thought I would separate it from the rest of the US of A.

Disney World for a week in October. That's it. We're still saving all we can just to go.

(unlike most Otters...I'm not wealthy)

I'm likely headed back to teh Europes this may. I am hesitant to make any reservation as I'm waiting on Ricky Gervais to announce a stand up tour which he said will be in May. I might hit up a couple of cities outside of the UK this time around though.

Going to a place called Camdenton, MO for memorial day so my wife can put flowers on her dad's grave and we will hopefully visit a few local landmarks while we are there.

Have plans to hit KC for the kiddos so they can visit the Zoo and Worlds of Fun

No major plans, might go to Vegas for my own Bachelor Party since i'm getting married in September, but that's about it since we're saving money for the wedding and honeymoon.

Re: Summer 2016 -- Any travel plans?

Our annual family trip to Hawai'i sometime this year. Maui probably. (We try to hit up a different island with each trip.)

A drive up the coast through Big Sur, a stop at the Steinbeck Center, and a couple of nights in SF.

(NEXT year we have Vietnam, Ireland, and England lined up.)

Decided on Seattle, second week of June for 5 days. Going to the usual tourist sites and stuff, but looking to do a few things that's a little different as well. So in case anyone has any suggestions/ideas, I'd love to hear them. And I'll be with my 12 year old daughter, so the drinking and adult places like bars will be little this time.

Just back and forth to and from the lakehouse all spring, summer, and fall. No need to go anywhere else.

Vegas in June for a few days, Niagara Falls/Toronto in July for some sightseeing, camping, and Canadian concert-going, and a cruise in August. The big trip is going to be a week in NYC in November for the marathon.

They released new tickets last November. I sat on Ticketmaster and scooped some up right as they were released. It's a trip because we have the tickets, not me looking for tickets on a trip that was already planned. Much easier that way. I took my daughter last November as well. That was a last minute trip and our scalped tickets were outrageous.

We'll be one week in Prague in July. Beside looking at sights this will probably turn into a food tour as I want to try as much Czech cuisine as possible.
