Need Vacation Ideas

We're planning on taking a family vacation in July. We haven't decided where we want to go yet and are needing some ideas. We are wanting to go somewhere by the ocean. The kids would love an amusement park. The only places I can think of that might accom. this would be Orlando Florida (Disney World) or Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Any suggestions on other places we should consider that includes the above?

Also, can you share your experiences at any of the places. Tips and suggestions.

Thanks!

You might want to check out the "Beaches" resorts. They are the family version of "Sandals". It is an all inclusive (and they really mean ALL inclusive) resort. Beaches is for families so they have tons of activities and things for kids to do. There will also be a lot of children for them to play with. There is tons to do for adults too. They are all on the beach and have pools as well. There is boating and great food and all sorts of activities. You can spend more money and get a nicer room, but my recommendation is get a cheaper room and save yourself some money because you will hardly be in the room.

Beaches

Luvs we went to Sandals which is the same thing, but for couples. Beaches is their offering for families. They also have hedonism for singles. Hedonism looked wild!!! I told my brother he should check it out. It looks like a blast.

How old are your kids Sizz, and what kind of price range are you thinking?

Don't forget my neck of the woods, sizz...
So Cal has beaches everywhere you look, and also there's Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure, Magic Mountain, Knotts Berry Farm, Sea World and Universal Studios.

How about the Bahamas? We were there a few years ago
and had a great time.
If you're looking to save some money The Holiday Inn on Nassus is
pretty inexpensive. It's all inclusive also.

Sizz, Californ-i-a has everything...from the desert to the sea. I've been here several years & still haven't seen everything. You can hop over to Vegas, San Fran, Palm Springs, Mexico, Taho, Kings Canyon, Yosemite, Northern Ca...ski, camp, lay on the beaches, shop & dine in Bev Hills, site see in Hollyweird. Check out Frommer's on the net & you'll get the low-down on any city you'd like to visit.
