Give Me Five!

I'm here for my first 'Give Me Five' Monday! Better late than never, I sometimes say. The 'Give Me Five' Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Click here to read more! Thanks for hosting this meme, Becca!

Give Me Five vacation destinations you've already enjoyed or would like to some day.

1. I haven't traveled extensively, but one thing I enjoy is visiting relatives. A very unique place to go is Hot Springs, Arkansas. There is the historic district full of nostalgic shops, museums, and photo oppotunities, as well as the "Duck" tours, Lake Ouachita, and Hot Springs National Park (pictured).

2. I was fortunate enough to go on my second cruise a couple of years ago. My children and 4 other family members had a wonderful time. We went to several destinations, but one of the most beautiful and unique was Roatan, Honduras. There is not a lot to do there except go to the beach, which is gorgeous, but the countryside is also absolutely lush! I would not recomend wandering through the towns or villages without a scheduled tour, but the trip from the port to the beach was breathtaking.

3. A place I have been a number of times is Las Vegas. The last time I was there was with my sister two years ago. Shows, casinos, people, lights! There is always something to do in Vegas!

4. I have been to Cozumel twice, once as part of a cruise, and once with my husband about 2 1/2 years ago (for our "honeymoon" if you can call a second-marriage trip a honeymoon). It was heaven! He has always told me to find my "happy place." I did. It's on the beach with a good book, a cold drink, and the one I love.

5. Orlando, Florida! I've been there twice, but it's been many years, and I am so excited because I get to take my kids there in March. My twins are 11, and they've never been. I never really thought it would be possible, but I've dreamed about it, and we're going! Our flight is booked! I can't wait to take them to Disneyworld, in particular. There are other things to do, but that is my favorite. I'm also looking forward to seeing the animal kingdom, which wasn't there last time I visited. It really IS the happiest place on Earth!

  1. I am just tickled pink that you have joined the Give Me 5 meme! I insist, thank you for participating! I love your list. I have been to Orlando 2 times myself and had fun both times. There's just sooo much to do there. I've been to Vegas once...lots of fun, too much to do in like 3 days. All this talk of cruises is making me want to experience one even more than before!!! Thanks so much for joining the meme. If you would like reminder emails sent to you, please let me know at

  2. Welcome to Give Me Five Monday! I want to go on a cruise someday! Right now, I'd settle for anywhere warm though LOL

  3. What a great list. I've been on a cruise and to Vegas. The rest of your list I haven't done yet. Have a great GM5. :)

  4. Great list! And so glad you put Hot Springs, Ark. on yours!

    It only took one day's visit to convince my husband and me we wanted to live here...and that was six years ago!

    Recently geographer Warren Bland named Hot Springs, Ark. the No. 1 place in America to retire.

    I gotta admit, Hot Springs is a pretty cool place to live, even for those of us who aren't yet retired.
