Where to go?




OK, readers, I need your help. The BF and I are talking about a long weekend in May someplace. Right now we are sort of torn between Vancouver, Seattle and Savannah, GA.

Of these three where would you? What's your vote? Been to any of them?

Grade: All seem like an A to me

I've been to Savannah a couple times. It's cute, but I didn't find a lot to do. Though I was underage, so who knows. I'd go to vancouver. You'd probably see some stars since that's where they film everything these days. And you'd be getting out of the country, always a good thing.

Although I've never been, I would say Savannah. It just seems like it would be a beautiful place.

Charlie, you magnificent bastard, you absolutely must visit Seattle. I could drive over the mountains from where I live in wine country and see you!

My girlfriend, whom I believe you would adore, is from Seattle and could help you find the best non-touristy spots.

And Tracy Ellicott lives in Seattle, too.

So, conceding that I am recommending it more out of a personal desire to see you than any regard for which city you might actually like best, I have to say Seattle is the obvious choice.

I'd say Vancouver. So that's at least one vote for each place. Good luck.
When am I going to meet this fellow?

I say Savannah because Dana and I got the car impounded in British Columbia.

if you go to savannah you should hit charleston too. if you go to seattle you should hit vancouver as well. savannah is great, tons of old homes and plantations to see and the restaurants and nightlife are right on the water. but i am a bigger fan of charleston. vancouver is super clean and has amazing gardens. i am headed to seattle at the end of july and am excited for the space needle, pike's fish market, and the music scene. i vote for seattle.

Savannah is my vote. Wasn't it a tv show on the WB a few years back?

Anyway, if you want warm weather, go there. I "heart" the south.

I agree with Elise. Savannah is nice but a day or two tops. Head to Charleston. It's amazing. They are close enough together you could really hit up both.

Savannah or Vancouver. Only been the the former but it was very pretty. Heard a lot of great stuff about Vancouver though...

Having been to all three places literally hundreds of times back when I was a stewardess, I say definitely VANCOUVER. The shopping and restaurants are fabulous, the people are SO FRIENDLY, the harbors are gorgeous, They have tons of unique cultures living together, and the exchange is usually pretty good. It's like a much cleaner and prettier San Francisco. And GAY GAY GAY at night! You'll both love it. Seattle would be my second choice, Savannah is completely gross and totally for old ladies.

Savannah's too hot in May and not sure if there are any direct flights into the city. That'll cut your vacation time having to consider transfers, etc. Go in October when it's more hauntingly festive and cooler.

My vote's for Vancouver, arguably one of the most beautiful cities on the planet, though I've never been but a major consideration for me. I met a friend in Palm Springs who lives there and he says there's tons to do, has one of the largest gay Asian populations in North America, and you have the mountains, you have the sea, you have the sound.

Also, there are reasonably priced shuttles between Seattle and Vancouver (3 or 4 hour scenic drive), so you can get more for you money heading to the Pacific Northwest.

Having said that, I'd rather pick Barcelona. Sigh, no money. I hate my shitty secretary job.

Vancouver all the way! It is beautiful, cultural and to top it off you cash is worth more. If you can, check out Victoria - it is one of the most majestic places I have ever been, especially in May!
