Earlier in the month our family was having some difficulty deciding on a vacation destination. Our original plan was to take nine to ten days, but our son couldn’t get the first day off (or approved yet) and a very close friend is getting married during the second weekend. Consequently, our time away was cut down to five days. That’s still a decent chunk of time, and we are very grateful to be able to take our kids somwhere special.
I made a Facebook post solicitating suggestions from my friends. I gave them three criteria:
1. Nothing south of the Mason-Dixon Line
2. Nothing west of the Mississippi
3. Able to enjoy ourselves for 5 days with no air travel.
I’m sharing what places were suggested along with some links to the area tourism and travel guides.
Fort Wayne, Indiana
Nashville and/or Memphis, Tennessee

Ontario, Canada – Toronto and Niagara Falls (or Niagara Falls, NY)
