    Honestly? No. But we’re international travel junkies. Our vaction time is strictly reserved for trips abroad. Duck island is supposed to be gorgeous though. If that’s more your speed, i’d do it. But, i’d fly instead of drive. 12 hours each way is brutal!

    I would go, because I already gave my word that I would. Otherwise, no!

    I said yes because I love vacations, close or not :].  How would your SO feel if you backed out [or would that not affect things]?

    @chillinchillin:  Honestly? You lost me at his parents being there IF this is the only trip the two of you will take this year. I LOVE my  boyfriends family, but we only get one vacation a year (IF that) and I’d rather it just be me and him 😡

    So, if you guys will get some “just y’all” time on another trip in the near future, then yeah, it sounds fun 🙂

    Travel Nut here…

    I would go.

    But then again I LOVE the Atlantic Coastline… and NC’s Outerbanks is spectacular… and having a beach house would be beyond awesome.

    The only real CON I see is the drive… but as I am a Road Tripper, that would be a small price to pay for the FABULOUS Vacation at the other end.

    Hope this helps,

    Yeah. But we recently went on vacation with my parents, my mother-in-law, and our kid, so I’m not really bothered by the family aspect like some people are.

    Whether or not I would agree to it in the first place is irrelevant. If I had already agreed, I would not be having second thoughts and considering going back on my word. I don’t think it’s ok to take others’ generosity for granted. You should go, enjoy getting essentially a free vacation, and think about time off work more carefully in the future.

    @chillinchillin:  I wouldn’t go because I am from NC and would prefer to visit other places, I don’t really feel like I’m on vacation when visiting with family, and the time off takes up all of your vacation time.

    However, if you’ve never been to the outer banks it’s beautiful and sounds like most of your expenses except gas would be taken care of.

    @chillinchillin:  no but only because to me vacation is about doing what we want and not having to spend it with family especially parents. That is me though so if you think hanging with his rents can be cool then I say go for it

    Nope I wouldn’t go. I don’t do vacations with family especially extended time period.  Weekends at the parents house sure, anything more than that no thanks.

    @chillinchillin:  Can you fly there? Maybe go but don’t stay the whole time, you can use the excuse of vacation days at work.
