Even that amount of time is quite a stretch primarily due to childcare but also because of limited vacation time
I see. If you do go to vail, definitely try to get out to Hanging Lake Park, it's an hour away, one of the coolest and most beautiful places I've ever been. (Although I haven't been many of the places other DDFers have been)

You could do Utah but limiting yourself to 2-3 days would be a shame there, there's so much to do.
Where and what in Utah do you have in mind? Zion national Park?

Looking to get away for about a week, with wife and kid (18 months).

Maximum 5-6 hour flight from Israel. Thanx!

 Preferably something more on the exotic side as opposed to typical tourist city like London or Paris.... Any tip appreciated  :) :) :)

No, it's a pretty short hike but pretty steep.

is that the one where you can hike past the lake a few more minutes and the top of the mountain has a stream from melting snow of great drinking water?

I didn't actually keep going up but I think you are able to.

Looking for an few day getaway vacation that must have a direct flight from NYC on Southwest. Destination should be scenic and have minyanim options nearby.
I know I'm narrowing down my options and it's tricky finding my ideal place but I'm sure the mods can help with this one 😋..
