Normally we've gone to the same place over and over again (because we love it), but last year decided to break it up into two different, smaller trips (Cooperstown/Niagra Falls and Asheville). Both were really good, but nothing compared to what we'll see this year.

    We're taking 24 days and driving out west to take in Yellowstone/Tetons, Glacier National Park, and the Black Hills/Badlands. It's been 40 years since I've been out there, but my wife and son have never been, so we are all stoked for it!

    Anybody else got some fabulous vacation(s) lined up for 2019?
    Glacier National Park is magical!

    I’ve got graduations and weddings this year that will take up some of my time, but the wife and I are heading to Jamaica in November to celebrate (belatedly) our 25th wedding anniversary. We are in the early stages of planning a 2020 trip to Chile.

    A friend just came back from Norway a few weeks ago. You are going at a better time, more daytime.

    We will be there right at the summer solstice. An option to leave a few days earlier to compete in the "Midnight Marathon" in northern Norway (Flam) was on the table, but I bypassed it. Kind of regretting my decision. Regarding the sunlight... it will bother me at night, no doubt.

    Next week my wife and I are having a short vacation for spring break to New Orleans without the kids. First time in a few years just the two of us are getting away. I think I am most excited to get to sleeping in past 7 am With a one year old and a 5 year old who wakes up every day like clockwork, I can't remember the last time I got to sleep in.

    Exactly how does one go about getting a tee time at The Royal and Ancient?

    We have a family wedding in Nova Scotia in July, so we are RVing to Bar Harbour, Maine and taking a ferry over. The ride takes 4 hours and saves 500 driving miles. After the wedding we are touring New Brunwick, newfoundland, Quebec City, Montreal and coming back to the states through Niagra Falls. We have never visited any of this except Niagra. It will take 3 weeks or so.

    I have never been there, but I am told Acadia National Park in Maine is one of the most beautiful parks there is. Let us know what you think.

    Also, as you go through Canada there is supposed to be excellent whale watching tours on the upper St. Lawrence River.

    Going to Cancun in early June for a wedding (my first Time our of the country) and going straight from there to Hilton Head for a family in-law vacation (my first time there).

    Still figuring out honeymoon destination but we are looking at Bar Harbour, ME or somewhere like Wyoming.

    Can only speak on a couple of things. Sleeping Bear Dunes is amazing. (If you like a mountain of sand!) There's also several lighthouses in the area, if you like historical structures. Only restaurant that I can recommend is also the only one I've actually eaten at...the Grand Traverse Pie Company. (In addition to a great bakery, they also have sandwiches, etc.)

    It used to be that I saw a TON of stuff advertised about TC with regards to their Cherry Festival (where you can find anything and everything cherry). I still see a lot, but apparently a lot of the farmers in the area have found that the ground that's good for growing cherries, is also good for growing grapes. And when you can get more $$$ for a bottle of wine than you can for a jar of jelly... So, you may find several wineries in the area now.

    I also think there's likely a casino there too, if you're into that. Not sure on the name though (but, most of the casinos in Michigan are operated by the local Indian tribes.) And there's a bunch of golf courses too. Just haven't played any of them.
