Question of the Day: Vacations

(Saturday's post about amusement parks got me to reminiscing about family vacations from my childhood. Hence today's question.)

Which childhood vacation do you best remember?

Answers I've received so far:
~ Disney when I was 8.
~ Disney. The only other option was the Keys, but I was 14 then and don't consider that childhood.
(Can you tell these people grew up in Florida?)

My answer:
This surely was not my best childhood vacation, nor is it probably the one I remember the best, but it is the one I thought of first while typing up today's question. I remember going to Maine to visit a friend of my mother when I was about 5 or so. A snowstorm stranded us in the airport there overnight. I clearly remember sitting on the floor of a long hallway with my mom and our luggage, among what seemed like hundreds of other stranded passengers. We ate junk food and stayed up all night, and hey, when you're 5, that makes anything fun. Unfortunately, other than lots and lots and lots of pine trees, I don't remember much more about Maine, and I wish I did. I'll just have to go back!
