I'd go to Las Vegas to see George Strait in concert next year, and I'd take my two sisters with me.  I think we'd like to stay for 3 or 4 days.  The two activities we'd do are 1) seeing George in concert, and 2) do some desert hiking outside of Vegas.  George Strait has been my favorite country singer since the 1980s so it'd be a thrill to see him in concert.  The hiking activity I'd want to do because I'm so sick of being in the big city and miss the wide open spaces.

 

Finally, this trip would mean so much to me because for the past 5 years I've been in recovery from neurosurgery for a brain tumor.  I'm on Disability and can't work anymore, and there's many normal activities that I just can't do anymore.  But I've come a long way since the surgery, far enough that I'm now able to get on a plane and attend a concert as long as I'm with my sisters to help me.

 

Thanks for the opportunity!

I would take my adult daughters for a trip to Disney.  Never was able to do this when they were young.  Now that they are older it would still be fun.

My two adult daughters who live in another state are always treating me to lovely vacations. I would like to treat them for once.

I would take them for a week at Walt Disney World in Orlando. We would stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort in a room with a balcony where we could sit and watch the fireworks because by that time of day my feet will have given out.

We will visit their Hollywood Studios for the Muppet and Toy Story attractions, among others, We would also go to Epcot to see what they have to offer. We would eat at The Boathouse and Boma, both of which I hear are very good,

Thanks for the opportunity to win this lovely trip.

It would be wonderful to spend a week on Sanibel Island with my 4 best friends.  Wendy, Jill, Robin, Jodi & I treasure our girl time when ever we can get it. We love to go for walks, go shopping and mostly - just relaxing and talking. We always go home refreshed and ready to face the world again.

If I were to go on a "Girlfrien'd Get Away it would be a small one.  I would bring just my Sis, Stephu, and my cousin, Betsy.  You see we come from a very small family ravaged ny suicide and cancer.  Not only that, but what's left live on opposite coasts and very rarelt see each other, (years, sometimes decades, as with this case).  I think it would be lovely to go to Paris, as that is one plave none of us have gone and 10 days would be sufficient.  Of course siteseeing would be on the list, the Eifel Tower and Louvre for sure) and then maybe some shopping while we catch up at a local cafe'while we reat our feet for a smidge.  I am the only one who keeps in regular contact with both of them, and I think this woukd be a wonderful reunion!!!

We would put up a map and throw a dart at the map from a long distance and the closest major city would be our spot.  Would make it a week long adventure,  Would be my sisters, daughter, daughter in law and my mom since we all get along so well and make this an annual event for quite a few years already.  We always go to several local attractions like art gallery or a casino.
