Next Summer’s Vacation

Posted: August 10, 2016 in Ramblings

This is an announcement for everyone who was involved in the discussions about DC.  Given our discomfort in the heat of Hawaii, we are reconsidering whether DC in summer is such a good option.  I mentioned this in an earlier post (Dad replied, so I know he read it), and I think Chris mentioned it to his parents, but not sure whether Mom and Diane got the intel yet.

But we’re limited to summer vacations because of Alex’s school (we want 2-3 weeks for us, and spring break is only 1 week ).  So we’re looking at alternate North American locations that might be less hot and sticky, such as Massachusetts, Lake Placid, or Toronto.  Those are just the three top “quick, what else can we think of?” destinations.  Discussions are ongoing.  Stay tuned.

We know that not everyone will be able to join us for three weeks, so don’t worry about that.  Come when you can.

If any of you have specific places in mind that you’d like to visit, give us a shout.  Thanks.

    Lake Placid would be interesting. So would Watkins Glen and Corning, NY. They are near each other. This is also NY’s wine region. ’nuff said.

      Massachusetts, and Maine would be good for Brian. Maddie has always wanted to see Boston. As far as I could see Lake Placid is a village full of expensive hotels, is there anything interesting to see there?

      We could do three weeks, if you could put up with us! The fares are very expensive so the longer we stay the better the value.

    Don’t forget that Lake Placid and Boston are in the East too; weather will be H-O-T here too in the summertime.

    • According to historical weather data, Lake Placid has an average temperature of 64 degrees in July (it’s in the mountains), and Boston has an average of 81, whereas DC is 88. Discussions are ongoing.
