Default I Want To Go There?

Just recently, in Boston, they have started to show commercials for summer destinations, from out of state tourism bureaus. I am sure what we are seeing is not what you are seeing, living other than than Boston area. We are seeing:

New Jersey, and North Myrtle Beach...I wonder if South Myrtle Beach is undesirable as they are so specific:)

We are also getting Sandals ads...so, what places to vacation are you seeing, where you live?

Alot of Newfoundland adverts on TV. It is indeed a beautiful place and we surely loved it a great deal.

The only thing I have seen recently is for Foxwood.

When we went to Myrtly Beach we did stay at the South End - there wasn't as much going on there, but it looked like they were beginning to do more construction at that time. I liked it as it was less congested, quieter and the beaches were less populated...walked for miles. It has been a few years so who knows what it is like now. It was a great vacation and I'd like to go back sometime.

I've seen some Ontario and PEI ads, but we're not visiting either of those, we're going back to Nova Scotia again.
Pretty soon the ads will start for Marineland (in the Niagara Falls area of Ontario). Those will be incessant throughout the summer.

Let's see, we have ads for: Wisconsin, North Dakota, Iowa, Missouri and, of course, Minnesota.

There are actually some pretty cool places in North Dakota. I've seen both of them.

Take care,
Mike

With the weather we have had this weekend and the first half of this week, everyone should be showing ads to come to Texas! WOW!

We have ads for Williamsburg, Va, Myrtle Beach, Texas, Sandals, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Quebec (Turnabout is fair play since half the province comes down here in the summer )

I've seen ads for the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Alabama and Florida. We always manage a weekend or so in Gulf Shores!

The new water park at SeaWorld...Aquatica is being heavily promoted right now. We've been recording most of what we watch and zip through the commercials.
