If you could build your own vacation resort, what is one attraction you would definitely include?
Just one? Well now, that’s a tough one. I don’t know if it’s a thing, but I would probably set aside a space as a quiet area. Like, private cabanas you could rent, but they’re all singles so you can get an hour or two to yourself if you need it. Sometimes when you’re on vacation with a group—be they family or friends—you just need some alone time.
It’s not that you aren’t enjoying your time on the beach or in the shops and restaurants with them. You’ve done several excursions already and you want to be out of your room, but you aren’t feeling very social. Your family is overwhelming you and you need a space free of them. Your friends have been running sunup to sundown since you got here and you just want to relax for a bit.
Everyone needs a little me time, even on vacation! Especially on vacation. You don’t want to return home after a vacation and think “I need a vacation from my vacation.” I have typed vacation too many times in this paragraph and now the word has lost all meaning. Man, I could really use a vacation!
I haven’t really been to many resorts, come to think of it. The Sandals Resort my husband and I went to for our honeymoon was certainly the nicest one I’d ever been to. I’m a fan of beach resorts. Oh, and there was Disney, where he proposed. That was a pretty nice resort too. But definitely a case of too many of us in one room and after a while it was overwhelming. I think my favorite “attraction” for that resort was the boat that would take you to downtown Disney.
The only other resort I can think of going to—aside from ski resorts I’ve visited—was this ranch up in the mountains on a small lake that we went to several summers in a row when we were little. It was a year-round resort, and after a couple years going in the summer, we started going in the winter instead. They had a little bit of everything. A beach, waterskiing, nightly bingo and dancing, horseback riding, skiing, even a rodeo. They had different special events for the kids every night.
If I had my own resort, I think I’d like to have nightly bingo. Families really get into it. Kids have a blast. Parents love it. For a few bucks, they get an hour or two of entertainment, and a chance to win some money. I don’t remember if we ever won, but I feel like we must have.
Anyway. Now it’s your turn. What is your resort must-have attraction? Don’t be afraid to get creative! Have a great rest of your night and I’ll see you tomorrow!
