Yerfdog Favourite Place to go on Vacation?

What is your favourite place to go during your vacation? There's a town around an hour away from where I live (London Ontario) called Grand Bend. (Often simply referred to as "The Bend") It's a fairly small town on the side of Lake Huron.

It's a fairly sleepy place during Winter, as there's not much to do there. When it's snowing however, you can take advantage of the wide open space for snowmobiling, sledding, and other things. The various hotels are also half as expensive, which are great for people who want to save on money. You can just rent a room, go out in the snow for various activities, eat at one of the town's many fantastic restaurants, and then relax by swimming, siting in a sauna, watching a TV movie, or even just sleeping! I love going there during the winter, but there's even more going on during the summer.

During the summer, it's been compared as "Canada's Florida" because the beach and the stores near it are open for business. It's population during the summer more then quintuples due to all the tourists. (I hope I spelled that right) It's much too hot for anything snow related, but the beach is open, and you can do many things there such as swimming, volleyball, and surfing. There's a big building that you can go to the top of, to look for miles around. One of the major things about Grand Bend during the summer is that the Pinery Provincial Park is open. It features walking trails, Canoing, (As well as several variations, such as Water Biking, which is actually quite fun) a visitor center, (Where you can watch various nature movies, as well as other things) a park store and restaurant, an outdoor theatre, camping, and access to a long, big beach. The hotels are naturally more expensive this time of year, but camping sites can be rented if you want to spend less money. (Plus you don't have to pay for a Hour/Day pass because you are camping there)

As you could probably tell by the amount of text I wrote, I really like going there. Where do you like to go?

Talking Re: Favourite Place to go on Vacation?

Hmmm...I really don't know. I guess I like going to my aunt and uncle's house in Minnesota, because they have sweet things to do there.

I'd LIKE to visit CA sometime and stay at my aunt's house out there for a little time, but that's mainly just wishful thinking.

I really would like to go and just camp for the week. I love camping, and any campsite makes me have fun!

My favo(u)rite place to go is probably my Grandma's house in Washington state. We always go hiking in the mountains and sometimes visit my cousins.

To be honest, I haven't really been many places on holiday.
I went to France on a school trip the other year, which was very nice.
Also, when I was very little, I went to the Canary islands a couple of times (Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria). I don't remember them much, but I'm they were awesome.

I used to live in London Ontario when I was a kid back in the seventies (I won't tell you which century). I remember Pinery Provincial Park very well. There is a long beach with lots of pine trees growing in the sand dunes. But my favourite memory of Pinery is one winter when the waves from Lake Huron were frozen solid in place along the beach -- a little bit of water would freeze at a time and build up huge frozen waves over time. It was really cool.

My current vacation type is to go driving to somewhere I've never been. Last summer I went to Sault Ste Marie on the East coast of Lake Superior. Then the next week I went to Maryland then back to Toronto via New York City. Good times.
