Favorite travel places besides amusement parks


Recommended Posts

So what are your favorite non amusement park destinations? I was recently in Puerto Rico and I had an amazing time. This winter I am going to the Caribbean on a NCL cruise for 7 nights (leave out of Tampa so may still go to BGT) but obviously that is just a bonus. What are some of the top places you have been to do stuff other than amusement parks? Even if the city has amusement parks, I usually would do one place and the rest of the time do cultural/foodie things.

Actually my favorite destination was probably Washington DC when we went last year. I also like to go to Lake Geneva in Wisconsin, but that's only because they have a really good ice cream place called Just Scoops with a Fat Elvis ice cream (peanut butter and bananas ). And the beach is good away. Finally, I'm not sure if it's a "destination", but when we went to Cincinnati a few years ago, we went down to Kentucky to go to the Creation Museum, which is probably my favorite museum. I'm not sure if I agree with the ideas the museum portrays, but IMO it was really cool.

NYC (so close, lots of friends)


Jersey Shore (visit folks, very close)

Vegas - it always has so much going on in the one place - bands, shows, and even some sport.

New York - just love Manhattan.

New Orleans - Bourbon Street is another planet at night.

San Diego - love the Mission Beach area.

Yosemite - absolutely magnificent, especially from the top of Half Dome.

Paris - love this town , even the French can't spoil it.

London - love the history, even if it's a minefield of disgruntled exes who moved there.

Rome - amazing history, even though it's hotter than the surface of the sun in summer.

I am glad this thread is brought back!


I have some more:


San Juan: Beautiful beaches, lots of things to do, great food, and an amazing place to visit.

Hawaii: I love the beaches, and lots of things to do around the island.


Next trips I hope to take that don't involve amusement parks:

1) Lima Peru- I want to take a friend. I'd love to see Maccu Piccu but I don't think my frequent flyer miles have availability at the time.

2) Bali or Thailand- Haven't decided which one, but want to go for amazing atmosphere, scuba diving, and food.

3) Dublin, Ireland- I hope to visit it during St. Patricks day next year. I live in Savannah, so I want to see how it compares.


After all these trips I should have about 180K Frequent Flyer miles left to do something. Haven't decided what. I want to visit every continent, so maybe hit up Australia and Morocco.

I used to go to Vegas every year, but haven't been for about 5-6 years.

NYC is always an awesome city to visit


Heading to Cabo in a few weeks for a wedding. Never done a beach resort type vacation, so I'm curious if I'll like it.
