Other- because my husband is a furnace repairman and owns his own business, we don't vacation from September to March. All other months are up for grabs. The choice then depends on where we want to go and the weather at that location.
In October around Columbus Day!
I take the week after school starts up again. All the vacation spots are still open, usually there is a discounted rate that time of year, weather is still nice and warm, and there are no kids running around. It's the perfect time for a vacation in Maine.
I Love to go to Massanutten and spend time with the family!
I WILL TAKE THANKSGIVING IT IS MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY
@ Janice Dyson I agree with you I am the same thing its my favorite Holiday...

Thank s A LOt Janice do appreciate you..
At this time in my life, my kids are having their own babies - so I usually try to take my vacation around the time of the delivery. This Grandma loves to be around to help out and snuggle the new baby as much as possible!!
I try to schedule around my son's college fall break and spring break IF we have any special plans as a family. Otherwise, I take my vacations around my training schedule.
I put Other, too. My little one is in school, so we take our vacations on the typical school schedule (June - August). I do take the first week of August off to participate in a huge international scavenger hunt, and then I take another week off for family vacation.
International scavenger hunt? Sounds interesting!
It's amazing! It's really focused on doing strange things and acts of kindness. GISHWHES :: GISHWHES
Other. Either June or July to take the kids somewhere for a summer vacation. But I'm open to any time of the year if I find a great travel deal. I'm in Arizona so the vacation is usually to California.
I like to take a week sometime after the second week of January, but before spring breakers start flocking to the beach. Need a warm, sunny location to relax in to make it through the winter months.
My husband owns his own company so he works holidays. We've had to Skype with him while our kids open their presents on Christmas many times. Luckily he will be working at a plant here in Greenville, SC this year. Praise The Lord!
Leslie Godfrey, My husband owns his own company also. He works harder and longer hours than those of us that work for someone else. Here are best wishes and prayers that he is able to celebrate Christmas with you in person this year!
Thank you! You're right, they do work many hours. He'll actually be here for Christmas but not sure of his hours though. At least he'll be here. I hope your husband gets some time off too!
Spring break because my son is out of school that week.
Whenever I can grab a day here and there, usually try to hook it up with a long holiday weekend. I don't "do" vacations away from home, I am at my vacation destination anyway.
Wow...that must be nice. I just looked at your homepage and the pictures are awesome.
Google Vinalhaven, there are tons of pictures
Sarah McDonald, You do have a beautiful area. Do you ever want a change of scenery? Just curious. I love to travel.
Sometimes, but it usually ends up being a smaller/more isolated island than the one I am on. In the woods isn't bad. Not into a cruise...the thought of that many people on a boat makes me cringe. I'm a wicked hick when I go anywhere, cities and big towns are not to my liking.
Other - living in Vermont with darkness and cold in January - a perfect time to find sun and warmth!
What part of Vermont are you in Kerstin Hanson? I lived in South Burlington for a while, and was born in Randolph
We are located in South Burlington!
After Christmas when all the stress is over and you can actually enjoy it
I prefer something in May when spring is springing or August. Both months are good for hiking and for sales if we want to spend our time shopping. We did take the week before Thanksgiving one year, but that was in order to maximum since we only had to use 3 vacation days--Thursday and Friday we were already off. Personally, I would love taking a week off every month!!!
I hear you Miss Mary ...
Around June the kids are off schools and we can all have a great summer vacation together
MARIA NEFF, we avoid June for exactly that reason. Our children are grown and we try to choose seasons when there are less active families. Although, we are thinking about DC in May. Field trips galore!
