Throw an air mattress in the bed of your truck and head out somewhere within a days drive.... do a day or two of fishing or just sitting around a fire and nothing else.

Basically what our vacation was this year...

My Dad has a vacation condo on Maui that is right on the ocean. My DW and I like to get away and that is a great spot. I think the web address is mauicondo209 It might be a bit of a flight from WI, but worth it.

If your budget it limited then definitely Mexico. We loved the Mayan Riviera and would go back in a minute. We also loved our Costa Rican holiday last year. It was absolutely FANTASTIC. Hot weather, beautiful beaches, incredible food and way cool stuff to do. Zip lines through the jungle, river cruises, trips to Nicaragua...too coo!

May sound a bit pedestrian, but how about the Outer Banks - North Carolina. Beautiful beaches, wonderful fishing.

Buck and I spent many vacations on Ocrakoke Island. Untouched beaches and fabulous surf fishing. Nothing like fresh flounder for breakfast out of the water.

We spent lots of time visiting lighthouses and went to Kitty Hawk (think Wright Brothers). Kill Devil Hills is awesome, too.

The whole area is great any time of the year. As a matter of fact, we usually vacationed in October. Lots of activities for everyone.
