    Re: mini-moon

    haha Lucy! We are going to Vegas in October for 3 days to see Kevin James. Yes, we travel a lot, but my FI works his butt off and deserves it. Guilty as charged. But we got an INSANE deal at the Mirage, and I mean INSANE. 3 nights/2 tix to Kevin James/2 tix to Love all for $500.

    And I know you can get cheapo flights out there. We are going from Fri-Mon. Now the only thing I am a little scared of is that we will be there on Halloween....

    My husband I and travel a lot as well and a lot of folks give us a hard time.
    If you can do it why not is how I look at it.  I personally would not stay local for your "mini moon" as I don't view that as anything really special.  Go have fun and no need to explain to anyone what you are doing.  I don't think the definition of "mini moon" is to stay local either.  It is what every you want it to be.

    Thank you Allready! I don't feel the need to explain to anyone, either. We love traveling, and plan on getting as much as we can in until we have kids (which won't be for at least 5 years), so lot's more traveling to look forward to! :)

    I wish we had the money (and time!) to take lots of vacations!  If you can afford it, go for it!  Memories give you more happiness than material possesions anyway.  :)

    I'm with you allready!  We like to travel and people like to comment on it.  Listen, if I don't comment on your spending money on a brand new car, how about you don't comment on my spending money on a vacation?
    And I am going to do my darndest to keep up the traveling once we have kids!

    Yeah, I am a huge fan of travel.  I'd rather spend my money on that than fancy designer clothes that will go out of style in two months (not that there's anything wrong with spending a lot of money on clothes).

    ETA:  Peonie, at this moment, I'm planning a trip to D.C. in June, a trip home over the summer, a trip to Phoenix for Thanksgiving, a trip to upstate NY next April, and a trip to Ireland the following summer.  I don't begrudge you your travel at all.

    Oh man Allready, I buy travel magazines at the airport to read on the plane to my current destination!!!
    Lucy GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!! You work damn hard, so you deserve it.
    And Fram, good for you as well. Traveling with kids will be hard(er) than traveling as a couple, but it doesn't mean you can't still have the same luxuries!
    Trex, I hope you get to your honeymoon in Hawaii! You deserve it :)

    Sorry, that was too many exclamations points....

    Honestly, Peonie, trips to visit the family aren't really all that relaxing.  I'm not sure I "deserve" the stress of having to deal with my mother.  ;)

    But thank you.

    If I was going away for only going away for 3-4-5 days and I was trying to save money for a an even better trip.. then I wouldn't want to spend a day or two traveling.  I love to travel, but I hate the Bos-California flight.

    Where ever you go, depends kind on how much you want to spend and how long you want to go for. You also need to consider what the weather is for that region in late August, you don't want to get there and find out its the start of the hurricane season. Before you fall in love with any idea, visit a travel agent - you could probably find some all inclusive deals as well as great ideas.

    Personally, I would just fly to Nantucket and stay some place pretty exclusive

    End of August--don't go southeast, way too humid and suffocatingly sultry. 
     I would do coastal Maine, RI, or Conn, but since you don't want New England, I suggest a cruise to Nova Scotia and Canadian Maritimes. 
    I like the Montreal idea too.  Quick plane ride. 
    Congrats and have fun!

    I *completely* agree with this.  My family lives in Florida and I try to visit 1-2 times a year.  Everyone says "have a nice vacation!".  But visiting my family is not a vacation.  We literally do *nothing* and it is often stressful to spend time with my family.  It can be fun, but definitely not a vacation.

    I agree, Trex and Lucy. It truly depends on the family relationship.

    Re: mini-moon

    I second the pacific NW - Seattle, British Columbia (Victoria and Vancouver are wonderful), the San Juan Islands. They have a tour company that also runs the big ferry boats (I forget the name) and it was really affordable to book ferries, hotels and everything through them. It's not too hot that time of year, absolutely gorgeous, and there's PLENTY to do, whether you want shopping, nightlife, nature, relaxation, or anything! And JetBlue flies direct there for pretty reasonable rates.

    Anything in the southern US will be humid and miserable in August. What about Nova Scotia? Is there still that ferry boat that leaves from Maine? That could be a fun short trip.

    Trex, I second the suggestion about Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY.  It's set in a beautiful area, is right on the lake.  That part of the Finger Lakes is usually cooler due to the wind off the Lake.  I went to college in the area and that's where a group of us and our parents had dinner graduation evening.

    We only llive about an hour from Lake George.  Think "downtown"  Lake George is pretty tacky.  There is a beautiful venue, the Sagamore, but it is fairly pricey.

    Unfortunately all of the ferries from the US to Nova Scotia have been cancelled.  The closest ferry leaves from Saint John, NB.

    We were planning on this trip for our honeymoon in October, but with the extra travel time to NB, I'm not sure if we will have enough time.
