This was the year we were going to take the kids and meet some family and spend a week in one of our favorite places in the world – Nova Scotia. Hubby and I spent our honeymoon there in 2005, and we’ve been dying to get back ever since.
Unfortunately, it’s just not going to happen this year. The reality of the situation is that it would cost over $3000 just to fly us up there. Add to that the rental house, the rental car, the gasoline, activities, passports, and food… we’d be spending close to $7000 for six days. In the end, it’s just not the right thing to do. We need to do several things here at home in order to enjoy the house the way we want to, and we have a few bills we need to pay off.
So, now we’re trying to come up with ideas for our vacation stateside. We did Orlando a couple of years ago, so that’s out. I really like the idea of San Francisco, but Hubby was there a lot with a job he held a few years aog, so he’s not so interested. We also thought about the Northeast (Hubby’s never been to NYC) but we want to be as thrifty as possible.
Anyone want to suggest some family-friendly places to go? We love outdoor activities, but don’t want to spend every day canoeing and hiking. We can eat in to save $$ but we’d like to have options… where should we go??
