    Question How often do you go on vacation?

    As a kid we used to go every July for a week. We never went far, usually just in New England, but we went away every year. Now it seems like we never have the money to take a vacation. We haven't been since 2000, and I'm not sure if we'll be able to afford this year either

    How about you?

    Never. LOL
    We haven't gone on vacation in our five years of marriage and I don't see it happening any time soon either. I think we'll definitely do some daytrips though.

    We usually take small weekend trips a couple of times per year and go to the beach for a week. Money is tight now, so those little weekend trips have become obsolete.

    We take a few day tripe every year to the zoo,The TN Aquarium,Rock City,Ruby falls.But never a week long vacation anywhere.The last time was in 1999 we went to Gulf Shores.It was the first time any of us had been to the beach and it was so much fun.I would love to go back but we can't afford to.

    We used to go 6-8 times a year to Atlantic City for 2 day get aways. A 4 day trip to Williamsburg, VA and 12 days to Disney. But since I stopped working we haven't been.

    We always take a weeks vacation and go somewhere...usually to the beach. I am thinking of changing that this year. We also take weekend trips just to get away.

    We usually do a long ski weekend in Vermont, a long weekend in Wildwood Crest at the beach, then 5-7 days either in Florida or an East coast beach (Cape cod, Outerbanks, Virginia Beach etc). Not sure what will happen with the kids this winter.

    DH and I try to take a vacation every year. In the summer, we usually take a week or so vacation with our Granddaughters and lots of camping trips in our trailer. We also take day trips when we can.
