Florida Weekend Getaway Archives

California or Florida?

I am planning a trip on labor day weekend and can not decide between the two. All I want is to relax by a beach somewhere away from Texas.
California: Not sure where but the typical Hollywood attractions are out of the question.
Florida: Between Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando (minus the theme parks), key west, and ft. Myers.

I will be with my significant other so we want a little romantic relaxing getaway. Any suggestions on which one and what attractions they have to offer? I have been through many sites but I would like to know the off the map secrets they have to offer… if any.
Well I do live in Texas so the weather is not very different as far as heat and humidity.

    If your bf/gf invited you on a family vacations to cancun after dating one year and again after two years (and every little getaway for weekends and stuff) should you inturn expect to be invited to a vacation to visit family in Daytona Beach Florida? The family that always invites just assumes the bf/gf is at least invited. The other family didn’t even ask

      I have been dating my boyfriend for about a year and a half. I love spending time with him and we really get along well in most areas.

      My frustration lately has been feeling that our ‘schedule’ mostly revolves around his busy and commited family and work life. He’s in his mid 40s and I am 29. He has 3 teenaged children from a previous marriage and a very good job in which he travels a lot with. I’m in a new job that honestly isn’t that demanding of me. I work a weekly schedule and my life is really flexible. I don’t have children, a demanding job or even a mortgage payment.
      I know his children have to come first and that makes him a really good father and man. I know his job also has to be a priority as it is what earns him a very good living.
      He gets his children every other weekend and takes all of his vacation weeks with them which is good. He travels internationally so he is goneI a lot. Usually for a few days every couple weeks but when he goes overseas he can be gone for a week or sometimes two. I am okay with this as I have plenty of friends to be with and go out with when he is not around. I am really cool with this and never complain about his sometimes busy schedule. We also do spend a lot of time together too when he is here.
      But … one thing that is really frustrating to me is that I have wanted to go with him on a vacation for a year and it is something that is really important to me. I really want to do a little bit of traveling. My girlfriends are at the point where they are all in relationships (with boyfriends and husbands they travel with mind you) so I can’t go with them. My only option is go alone or with my boyfriend. We did go for a long weekend last May to Florida. It was to a beach that he has gone to for years since he was young. I didn’t want to go to Florida as I had already been. I wanted to go somewhere different like Mexico or the Caribbean and voiced that to him. But some things came up and we ended up just doing the Florida trip. It was okay but I didn’t love it. Since then I have been talking about wanting to do a Caribbean trip or something along those lines. I have been talking about it a lot.
      Now he wants to take his teenaged son snowboarding this winter. He also has friends going. I hate skiing/snowboarding so I have no interest going. He loves it. They were supposed to go during his son’s winter break in Dec/Jan and we had talked about doing our weekend getaway sometime in February. I was excited. But they didn’t book in time and rates got to expensive so they bumped it to his break in early Feb. I’m frustrated because that is when we were supposed to go. Now he also has his schedule filling up with huge international trips (one in Feb & one in early March). I just feel like my life revolves around his schedule and that I come at least # 5 or 6 in his life (behind his 3 kids, job and him). Its good that his kids come first and I understand that but 5th or 6th place is pretty far down the line for me at the point I am at in my life. Especially when I am alot more free for him. I love him and I know he is crazy about me … but I think he isn’t being very considerate of me.

        College girls weekend getaway HELP!?

        Looking to getaway with about 4-5 of my friends (18-21 year olds), just finding a place is the problem. We’re from Florida and wanting to find a place where there is college life during mid-July. Because we’re on a tight budget something in Florida or relatively close to Florida would be ideal. Any ideas or suggestions would be great!

                  For spring break I wanted to go on a weekend getaway and I will be traveling solo. I really just want to get away from the people I’m around and just relax, but I’m not sure where I want to go.
                  I’ve narrowed it down to two places: Orlando, FL or Niagra Falls, On (Can).
                  I really love Orlando and I’ve gone there plenty of times and if I went there I’d go shopping and I’d go to spas and maybe one of the parks (basically, I’d want to do all the touristy stuff I never got to do~).
                  I’ve been to Niagra Falls once before (with family) and if I go there I’d want to go clubbing and I’ll be able to have a good time and drink (I’ll be 20 when I go, but thats not realllly why I want to go).

                  Where should I go?
                  (I’m def. going solo.)

                    Weekend Getaway for 2 in Florida- Need Ideas!?

                    I want to plan something for my 2 year anniversary. I would like to go maybe Friday night till Sunday. I have no idea where to go… I just know I want to get away. I currently live in Ft. Lauderdale so Ft. Lauderdale/Miami is out of the question. I was thinking maybe somewhere like Sanibal Island/Orlando something like that… My boyfriend is the type that likes to do things- so if its Sanibal island- I need to know what we can do while we are there- or anywhere else we choose to go… Any ideas???

                    Thank you!
