Thinking of taking a vacation next month just to get away and am in search of some ideas. What's your favorite place to vacation to and why?

Greece, hands down. That country is gorgeous. It's also an opportunity for a seemingly neverending exploration. It has everything - a long tradition and a beautiful culture, fantastic beaches, islands, a rich history, fantastic mountains for hiking, etc.

Orlando - call Uber and you'll be there in 45 minutes.

Once the weather breaks it would be the Keys actually... prettiest water in the world, fish jumping in your boat and air so fresh you can bottle it and sell it.

I live in Orlando myself and I hate it here! Definitely would love to visit the Keys!!

You're allowed to go to St Cloud and watch the cows... no Keys for you!
Oh geez not St Cloud :weep: Growing up in a rural town that's not very rural anymore here in central FL, I've watched more than my fair share of cows lol. Love them, but they sure don't know how to have a good time! On the other hand though, my flock of chickens are always having a good time :p

Cuba is the only place I've been outside of Canada. I love it but I'm not even sure if Americans are allowed there right now or would even want to go for obvious reasons. It's more of a 'relax on a resort' type place, not really for exploring. It was almost like a home away from home because at least half of the people at my resort were also from Canada and the rest were from Western Europe.

It was also pretty cool seeing all those classic American cars.

JetBlue flies Orlando to Reykjavik nonstop.

Go to Iceland. Walk amongst the waterfalls and hot springs. Watch the glaciers float from the lagoon into the turbulent ocean. Hike across the flat black sand beach to the abandoned plane crash. Soak in the geothermal springs of Mars-like Myvatn. Climb the steep hill up to Hengifoss and breathe in some of the purest air you've ever experienced. Stroll the beautiful and colorful streets of Akureyri and interact with the nicest and happiest populace on earth. Stand at the edge of the earth at the Dyrholaey lighthouse. Explore the fissures of giants at Rauðfeldsgjá.

You want to just "get away"? That's your place. Rent a Subaru as soon as your land and just start driving in a circle headed towards the south. After a day or so of exploring, you'll pass through Hofn and any remnants of tourists will drastically thin out. Then, it's smooth, quiet driving and exploration all the way around back to Reykjavik. There was one day through east Iceland we drove for four hours and made multiple stops before seeing another car.

After reading this I feel as if I was just there.

Yes, several times. If you're looking for specific recommendations about destinations in Greece, my number one vacation spot is the island Thassos. It's a relatively small island, filled with greenery and natural beaches. It has beautiful waterfalls, rustic villages, and gorgeous scenery. It's one of my favourite places in the world.
