My Best Summer Vacation  

Posted in

The word “vacation” can mean different things to different people.

Whether I am going on a 45-mile trek to visit family, on a trip to Tennessee for training or on a bona-fide vacation to Washington, D.C. or Hawaii, in my mind it is all the same — I am on vacation.

Everyone needs that time to get away, to be somewhere that is somewhat out of reach, where there are no phone calls every five minutes or e-mail to check (unless you just want to). Last year we went to vacation in New York. There are lot of things to do in New York that you will surely enjoy.

My husband and I went to Washington DC last July 14, 2008 and we stayed there for about 2 days.

We went to Madame Tussauds Washington DC Wax Museum it gave us an interactive, full-sensory experienced; you can touch, see and hear major historical events and celebrities in a way unlike any other Washington DC tour. I was able to seat at the President's desk in the Oval Office, listened to Martin Luther King, Jr. deliver his "I have a dream..." speech and reviewed war tactics with General Robert E. Lee.

Thanks to Trusted Tours & Attractions we were able to visit Washington DC's spectacular monuments at night. I had my husband stand in front of the Washington Monument, which was a distance away. He doesn’t appreciate the humor in making him look like the monument was coming up out of his head. Hehehe.

We stopped at the Iwo Jima Memorial, FDR Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veteran and Korean War Memorials. Check Trusted Tours & Attractions online travel guides and save up to 20% off on their online ticket.

This coming Fall we are planning to visit Las Vegas. There are many things to do in Las Vegas, I want to experience the Grand Canyon Helicopter and Ranch Adventure, spend time on Lake Mead, aboard the Mississippi style Paddle Wheeler, and stop at Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Botanical Gardens.
