8 Questions to Consider When Deciding Where to Go on Vacation

Select Registry - December 15, 2014

When deciding where to go on Vacation, there are many factors to consider to ensure you have a memorable and enjoyable getaway. Your ideal destination is determined by what you want to do, what you want to see, who you want to meet, and more. Consider these 8 questions about where to go on vacation before booking your next trip.

1. What Kind of Weather Would You Enjoy?

One of the biggest things to consider when planning where to go on vacation is the weather you want to experience during your trip. Now, nobody can predict the weather with complete certainty, but you can decide on a destination based on the average weather for a region during the time of year you’ll be travelling. If you live in the Northeast and are tired of the chill in the air, you may want to take off for the warm beaches of Florida or California. Or if you’re tired of a temperate climate and crave some actual seasons, a fall foliage trip to New England may be in order.

2. How Far Do You Want to Travel?

Do you want to journey far from home or do you just want a quick weekend getaway? No matter how near or far you can count on luxurious accommodations from one of the many Select Registry properties in North America.

3. What Type of Environment Do You Want?

When you picture your dream getaway, what setting is in the background? Mountain peaks, pastoral hills, sandy beaches? There are so many different environments to enjoy during a getaway, so you should use this question as a parameter for narrowing down your choices.

4. How Isolated Do You Want to Be?

If you need extra peace and quiet during your next getaway, then you might not want to go to an urban area. There are numerous quiet country inns and bed and breakfasts to help you get away from it all. Or you might want to be nearer to a bustling city, where you’ll find plenty of amazing accommodations as well.

5. Do You Want to Socialize A Lot?

If you want to socialize, then fellow guests at even the smallest hotels, bed and breakfasts, and inns will provide stimulating conversation and innkeepers are especially accommodating. If you’d rather socialize at clubs or a variety of bars, then look for a location that has a larger variety of these establishments.

6. How Scheduled and Busy Do You Want to Be?

Some destinations are meant for packing in the activities while some are better for simply relaxing and forgetting about the day to day. So choose where to go on vacation based upon how busy you want to keep yourself.

7. What Activities Do You Want to Participate In?

You obviously can’t expect to relax lakeside in Palm Springs, but you can get that experience at a number of other destinations. And conversely, you can expect to find a long list of entertaining things to do in Palm Springs! You just have to decide what you’d be happiest doing during your time away!

8. Do You Want Fine Dining or Casual Fare?

While you’re sure to find great restaurants no matter your decision on where to go on vacation, certain locations are more likely to have a larger selection of dining options. If you’re staying at a Select Registry property with an on-site restaurant, then your taste buds are already in good hands. However, keep in mind that if you’re in a more isolated locale, then you should be prepared to have fewer places to choose from than if you’re located near a city. — Once you have asked yourself these questions and decided where to go on vacation, take a look at the list of Select Registry properties  and find the perfect place to stay during your trip! No matter your destination, you can be certain that you’ll get the finest accommodations around!
