The Fabulous Family is looking to book a vacation for Thanksgiving this year.
Every year we always go to my grandmother's house in East Texas (Tyler, to be exact), where my mom grew up (except 2003, because my mom had just had her first of several cancer surgeries and couldn't be in the car to drive out there).
Since my grandmother just died last month and we won't be going to Tyler for the first time ever, my mom wants to plan a family vacation for the four of us (mom, dad, me, 23 year old brother).
We want to do something quick (Wednesday-Sundayish), so Hawaii/Europe is out (I don't like Europe anyway), but we are having a hard time coming up with ideas.
My brother suggested Vegas, but I don't want to do Vegas because I'm unemployed and broke so I have no desire to go somewhere where all you do is gamble and shop and go to nightclubs because yeah, I have no money.
My mom suggested Napa possibly, which sounds alright to me.
Our last family vacation was to the Caymans, so we'd prefer not to repeat.
We've done Mexico a gazillion times before, but we always stay at resorts, so I suggested maybe doing something different and getting a villa instead of a hotel.
So - suggestions for vacation spots for the fam? (and keep in mind my parents like to drink just as much as I do so pretty much anywhere goes). And if you've done Mexico villas before - please share the website and let me know about your experience!
