It may be cliche, but it is
1. Beautiful
2. Relaxing
3. Plenty to do
4. Nice hotels
And if you've never been you really should at some point (I know it doesn't compare to Iguzu, but still)
I know that's why I may still do it but I believe DC has all that too and the wife has never been there.

Unless it's oppressively hot than it's neither relaxing nor is their tons to do and it's nowhere near as romantic
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

D.C. in May is really nice (shouldnt be too hot), can walk around to all the major sites in one afternoon, and i love Eli's Restaurant (though i heard its moving). plus, if u care, there is a nice shul/minyan in georgetown, 15 minutes walk from dupont circle (Kesher Israel).

I guess I only remember it from my 8th grade trip when it was spring. It was beautiful then and in my mind looked like a romantic place to visit. I guess the summer would be different.

Looking for ideas for a quick weekend vacation... Somewhere close to chicago (preferably warm, but not a must)
This will not be a long trip, just a weekend thing.... Looking to do something fun+cheap and burn some Avios...
Any ideas?

Going with a baby 7months old, should we look to do Venice, or is it smarter to do Hawaii (Kauai)?

Not the only 2 options, where else would you or someone recommend with a baby, except Paris Zrh yvr Miami Israel, since we were at those places already.

What do you want to do on this trip?
Honestly just wanna chill with a few friends, don't need anything fancy and I don't wanna go somewhere far because I can't spend a lot of time there anyway (I could just take a long weekend off maybe)
Is there anything cool to do in Atlanta?

I'll probably go to YVR in the summer

how about Orlando or LA-San Diego not the best with baby but I did it: the problem with VCE that's it's only 3-4 day vacation max, and it is far and tickets ain't cheap, a baby will not be a big issue there.
