What vacation spot would you recommend to a friend on a limited budget?
I guess that depends on how limited the budget was. The closest (I think)
really-vacationy place around here is the Okoboji area. There are lots
of largish lakes there, and there's a little community called Arnold's
Park where they have a little carnival-type place and you can buy special
ice cream and walk next to the water. And buy things. It has a very boardwalky
feel. Then, in Spirit Lake (I think), there's a Radio Shack/fudge shop/gift
shop combo which is quite nice. They have zillions of types of fudge.
Oh, I think they have video rental too. There's a museum (Museum of the
Lakes?) with paintings you wouldn't expect to find in this little place.
I'm fond of staying at home with do-it-yourself luxury. The ratio between time invested and money invested depends on my mood (and money) at the moment.
British Columbia. It's not a big trip, and the current exchange rate makes it a bargain.
I would recommend a camp site called Ladys Mile which is in Dawlish Warren, near Exeter. It's a cheep way to have a holiday - near to the beach, with a swimming pool, and a golf course, and pleanty of things to do without spending too much money :)
I do not know. But I'll be looking at the answers. I need to o to a place with plenty of sunshine. Our family usually goes down to the shore.
Carnival Cruise lines, they're cheap
Pack a lunch and do fun day trips to tourist spots within a 3 mile drive.
