Atlanta, Georgia 1979 High school band trip, 6 Flags.
Bar Harbor, Maine 4/02, 4/03 Acadia National Park is a nice 2-3 day trip. April is a bit chilly and things aren’t all open yet, but less expensive to visit than in summer.
Bermuda 6/86, 9/86, 10/92 Not the best place to bring kids, a great get away for romance though. Beaches are as nice as Hawaii.
