15th Wedding anniversary will be this October. Other than a one night stay at a hotel about 4 years ago, we have never taken a trip that didn't involve the kids in some manner and we both think it is high time to change that.
If we can't find someone to watch the kids, then we will stay local and just do a night (or two) at one of the nicer hotels, along with a nice dinner, take in a show at one of the comedy clubs (unless a concert comes along), and quite possibly a limo ride around town for the evening.
However, if we can find someone to watch the kids, we are thinking of either Las Vegas or a cruise of some kind (preferably departing Houston/Galveston- driving there would be cheaper than flying to FL). Neither of us has been to Vegas or done a cruise, so this would be crossing something off our mutual bucket list.
Looking at sites like travelocity and expedia, it looks like the cruise would be a bit more affordable. I wanted to do a 3 day/night cruise, as I don't know how to swim and never been on a boat of any size and don't want to find out I get seasick on a 7+ day trip, but the only things I'm seeing are 4 or 5 nights doing the Western Caribbean with ports of call in Mexico... and since we don't have passports, I don't think we would be allowed off the ship for the duration of the trip?
Neither one of us is really into drinking, but we're looking primarily for dining and entertainment.
