    Thought I might pick your guys brain. Does anyone know of some great vacations they have been on? I am hoping to find tours of old victorian homes or just unique looking old homes?

    Don't know when I will go but it is something to work for.

    Thanks,
    Debbie

    One of my best vacations was San Francisco. Lots of pretty houses and places to explore. I really liked wandering around the Winchester Mansion-- it's not far from San Francisco. And Alcatraz and the art museum were fun.

    All of the places mentioned are beautiful.

    Another suggestion is Richmond, VA. I think it is one of the most beautiful southern cities. It is very historical with plantation homes, and has many of the older homes.

    Just my two cents!

    No matter where you choose, have a great time!

    Cape May New Jersey, it's just a short ride south of Alantic City. They have many cute Bed and Breakfasts there and some of the most beautiful historical homes.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Ashville has the stunning Biltmore Estate and a historic old hotel that I can't remember the name of, as well as a variety of other historic buildings. It is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

    Boston has loads of history and is located on the coast. When I was there several years ago, I stayed in a Bed and Breakfast in the historic district. The prices there were high.

    Oh to be so lucky to take a vacation! My husband and I have only been on 1 vacation in our nearly 35 years of marriage. We could never leave the farm--someone always had to be here to feed the cattle, and there was always too much to do in the good weather months.

    Now my husband has slowed down in his farming and could probably find time, but I am not physically able--my total health has declined so, that I would be a pain in the butt to fool with because I would have to take my wheelchair and that would limit on what we could do.

    So, we will probably never take another one.

    vacation that I can enjoy without having alot of pain is a cruise. They are really cheap and everything is right there for you to enjoy.

    All the food you could want, room service and all kinds of shows even a casino. Everything is included in your price except drinks and the casino.

    is a beautiful, awesome place to visit in the summertime. It is located in the Straits of Mackinac between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. It is unspoiled by motor cars - none are allowed except for emergency vehicles. You get there by ferry from Mackinaw City or St. Ignace. Once there, you get around by walking, bicycling, horseback and horse-drawn carriage.

    Obviously, for people with FMS/CFS, a lot of walking may not be an option. Bicycles and horses are available for rental. Personally, I recommend the carriage tour. You get to see many historic sites dating back to the War of 1812 and even earlier. There are many lovely homes from the 1800's and early 1900's. And, of course, there are many gift shops and fudge shops!

    If you have ever seen the movie "Somewhere in Time" with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, you should know that most of it was filmed right there on Mackinac Island. :)

    It isn't that far of a drive to visit Charleston and Savannah. They're only an hour or so drive between the 2 cities. They are both beautiful places to see and a lot to do. Charleston also has the old slave markets - it's like an open air flea market where you can buy you sweet grass baskets from. It is really neat to acctually be able to watch the ladies make them.

    I'm only about 75 miles west from Charleston and about the same north of Savannah. Charleston was even on 'the Amazing Race' week before last.
