I came back from a trip to Hawaii last month. It was gorgeous! In the continental US, I love going to San Francisco, but it can be expensive too.

hssweethearts2013 :  I LOVE Hawaii too! Been there 6 six times. Can’t seem to get away lol it’s not only beautiful , But so much to do and ppl are friendly. This year however I’m planning on going to Nicaragua to visit family I haven’t seen in years. I been there once when I was under 3, so that doesn’t count. I’m excited

Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. It’s gorgeous, remote, and the stress just falls away.

hssweethearts2013 :  Are you looking to go to another tropical place or for something else? I really enjoyed Puerto Rico and Belize if you’re looking for tropical. I have to say, though, one of my favorite places is San Francisco. Last time we went to San Fran, we drove up from LA on the Pacific Coast Highway which was amazing. 

Personally when I go somewhere tropical, I enjoy places where I’m going to do more than just sit on a beach. We did a lot of hiking in Puerto Rico and also a lot of just walking around in Old San Juan. My favorite thing about Puerto Rico was kayaking in the Bioluminescent Bay. Google it if you’ve never heard of it… it was an amazing experience. In Belize, we also did some hiking in the rain forests, saw a lot of Mayan Ruins, did cave tubing, and spent some time at the beach doing snorkeling and the like.

Hawaii if you’re looking for something tropical.  I was ready to plan my trip back to Maui before I even left the island the first time.  I could literally spend weeks there and not run out of things to do.

Ireland, otherwise.  The options for city exploration, country drives, cliffs, castles, and generally beautiful sight seeing are endless.

hssweethearts2013 :  I’m boring. I’ve been all over the US and also Europe, Mexico, all over the Caribbean. But my two favorite places are: Western Montana and St George Island, FL

Montana because it is breathtaking, remote, friendly, and just so rustic and untamed. I used to live their after college, and it is absolutely one of the most gorgeous locations on Earth.

St George Island, FL because it’s relaxing, serene, somewhat secluded and you can drag your beach chair, cooler, drinks, and iPod down to the side of the water and sit there all day enjoying the green waters of Florida. There’s also a couple of good little local spots to eat.. and overall, just really relaxing!

hssweethearts2013 :  It depends. For something really romantic & sentimental for us, it’s Paris (although some people say it’s dirty and overrated). I’m excited every freakin time we go and I could never get enough. FOr something tropical and beachy, Cabo San Lucas. I’d like to explore Hawaii & one of the Carribean spots too. But for a quiet long-weekend just the 2 of us, we love driving to Palm Springs.

For tropical, I’ve enjoyed Hawaii, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, and Martinique.

In terms of adventurous vacations, I think Costa Rica and Belize have been the most fun.

My favorite place in the continental U.S. is probably San Diego – awesome blend of culture, fun, and beach.

Iceland! It feels like another planet sometimes, the people are wonderful, the scenery is gorgeous, there are hot tubs *everywhere*. If you like hiking and exploring, then Iceland is your place!

I’ll second Cape Breton, too, although really all of Nova Scotia is pretty great.

LadyBear :  I’d love to hear about Martinique. It’s on my list. 

Anguilla! It’s my favorite place on earth and I travel for a living. You fly to st.maarten then take a boat over. Romantic and quiet with great restaurants.

Peachytalk :  It was awesome – a nice mix of adventure (semi-active volcano you can climb) and beaches (beautiful white sand and black sand beaches). It’s not huge either, so you can hit a few different locales. 

There’s not much English at all, so that was a challenge sometimes (I don’t speak French) – they were really friendly though!

You pretty much need to rent a car – and they don’t have automatics available, so it helps if you can drive a standard (we couldn’t, so had to learn on the fly!). 

We were only there for 4 days (well 5, but our flight was early on our last day). We visited Mont Pelee, Fort de France, Jardin de Balata, and multiple beaches – we rented an Airbnb in Trois Ilets as our home base. 

If we had more time, I would’ve liked to see St. Pierre, as well, and probably book a boat to go snorkeling or diving. Definitely a cool destination. The euro exchange rate is pretty even right now, too, so that helped money-wise.
