We definitely would love to go back. My youngest son wants to come with. He asked if he had enough quarters in his bank to ride a dolphin! Not sure that we would take the kids…they might have to wait until their honeymoon or something. : )

    We would love a “staycation” in Kearney. In fact two years ago that is exactly where we went for vacation. We enjoyed being close to home, and getting to do all the fun things we never have time for when coming to town. Our kiddos loved the Big Apple, and we enjoyed spending quality family-time by the pool!!!! Please pick us!

    I have to say that Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO would be my pick of favorite vacations. There is alot to do in Colorado Springs, we took advantage of many of the sights, scenery and various restauraunts and other locations. Of all of them, the Garden of the Gods had such a tranquil setting. I would recommend to anybody for a getaway or a family vacation, we would defintely go again, but it’s fun to go to other places . . . especially right here in our own home state! There is so much to love here, I like the fact that you are giving this experience to somebody . . . all to often times, I think we forget what is in our own back yards! Whoever wins, will defenitely enjoy it!

It seems like wherever we go the kids always say “this is the best vacation ever.” I really think the key is to spend quality time as a family and get rid of the electronics and have fun with your family!!!

    From one biker chic to another I would have to say my favorite vacations have been on our bike. Our first trip being our best. We visited Valentine NE. The weather was perfect and the sandhills were covered with miles of beautiful yellow flowers. We didn’t see another vehicle for hours. We got to the river late and were the only floaters so it was like we had the whole world to ourselves. We considered going again but it would be hard to repeat such a perfect trip.

    We recently had a mini-staycation in Kearney as my in-laws were visiting from the east coast. They loved the Classic Car Collection. As for leaving Kearney, my husband and I love New Orleans! But with a 5 month old we won’t be visiting there anytime soon :(

    My favorite vacation location is anywhere that I’m with my family. I imagine if I were to ever visit somewhere tropical, however, that it would take 1st quite quickly. :)

    We went on our first big family vacation to Orlando. We went to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom in Disney World. The water rides were my favortie. We had so much fun and everything went really well.

    Hm, haven’t had a family vacation (that didn’t involve long, mandatory stays with extended family) in so long that I can’t think of a favorite spot. Discovering new things about home sounds nice, though.

    LIKE!!:D My favorite vacation spot (so far) is St. Augustine, FL. My family went down to Georgia this summer…my husband’s from there. He decided to take us down there to “see the sights”. We went to the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum, the wax museum and saw the fountain of youth. When we drove past the castle (a REAL castle) and went over the draw bridge, we had to wait for pirate ships to cross. :D Then we went to the Alligator Farm. We had such a wonderful time, and we’ll go back EVERY chance we get!! :D

    I am like this contest and would love to learn about Kearney. It is hard from my family to wander far from home. It would be great to check out all these great family attractions.

    My favorite destination is Queen Creek AZ — truthfully, it’s becuase my family lives there! :-)
