So... where do YOU go?
I live in a tourist-type town right along the St. Clair River, in Michigan, so lots of people come to us to vacation. But where do you go to vacation when you live in a vacation town?
This was easy when I was in university. I went to school across the border in Canada, and summer vacation in Southwestern Ontario means Wasaga, or Grand Bend, or some other Lake Huron playground. The beaches are nice, the people are friendly, and the night life is peppy, to say the least.
But now, living back in Queensville, I find that I am so caught up in the local tourist attractions that when I think of vacationing, my mind goes blank. So, where do you go to vacation when you live in a tourist town? I'm open to ideas. I don't like crowds, and I'm not into high-priced shopping. I don't want to fly anywhere.
Ideas, anyone? What is your ideal vacation destination in summer?
