The stars have aligned and we suddenly have two weeks to go on vacation in early March. We usually spend a lot of time researching destinations, but we are caught up short this time. Here are our constraints:
--2 adults and 2 kids (4 and 9)
--we can go anywhere in the continental US, caribbean, or Western Europe
--cost not a big factor
--no Disney, please, unless you can make a great argument for it fitting into our stated interests
Here's what we like:
--odd transportation (hydrofoils, funiculars, barges, etc.); no mules or horses as those will trigger our asthmatic
--walking tours and pedestrian zones
Some of our favorite vacations have been SF/Bay Area (cable car museum, bay model in Sausalito), Northern Germany/Denmark (Legoland, Miniatur Wonderland, canals and flying bridges, Tivoli & Stroget, walled city of Lubeck), Amtraking across the US.
Where should we go, MeFites? We're grateful for all interesting ideas, and especially grateful for those that won't be dismal in early March.
