    2 years ago I went to the East coast and was spell bound by the Canadian beauty. I only got enough time to tour Nova Scotia and would love to go back to Newfoundland, PEI and Labrador. The people were amazing!

    By C R Williams on January 4, 2012 2:30 PM

    I will be traveling to New York this year.

    By Christie R on January 4, 2012 2:30 PM

    I would love to travel to Costa Rica!

    By Kirk on January 4, 2012 2:33 PM

    Truthfully, my travel regret was that I didn't go to the BATA shoe factory in Toronto. i was actually only a 15 minute walk away.

    By Aaron D on January 4, 2012 2:33 PM

    I missed out on a chance to travel to Australia to meet some friends. Definitely going this year.

    By Sarah on January 4, 2012 2:34 PM

    By Gail on January 4, 2012 2:34 PM

    By Eugenie on January 4, 2012 2:45 PM

    I hope to go to China

    By Nick on January 4, 2012 2:51 PM

    I want to travel to Las Vegas this year (and probably am). Wife and I went in 2010 to see our favorite band 311 but didn't get to see a whole lot in our 2 days and nights there. We would love to go for an extended weekend and see it all!

    By Howell on January 4, 2012 2:55 PM

    I would like to visit Africa and go on a safari.

    By Anthony C on January 4, 2012 3:00 PM

    I have not traveled internationally in a few years and i missed opportunities in 2011 to travel domestically and internationally. I hope 2012 is the year for me to travel and explore.

    By Laura on January 4, 2012 3:03 PM

    I have been planning a trip to Hawaii for about 20 years - I am hoping that this will be the year I finally go!

    By Marcie S. on January 4, 2012 3:09 PM

    Would love to go to California!! Never been to the west coast. The Pacific is calling me......

    By Johanne LaurinCastonguay on January 4, 2012 3:10 PM

    I would love to travel to Costa Rica!!! :-)

    By Craig Makepeace on January 4, 2012 3:32 PM

    One of my goals for this year is a 3 month road trip within the United States broken into different stages: California, southwest, and Florida. Nothing beats a road trip with your family exploring the coastline, towns, and National Parks - Craig :)

    By Alouise on January 4, 2012 3:40 PM

    Last year I wanted to go to New Orleans. I kept looking at flight prices and one dropped to a good deal, but I hesitated and didn't buy and suddenly the price had gone over my budget. My student budget can only afford so much, but this year I'm determined to make it to New Orleans. Whether by plane, bus, train, boat or my own two feet I'll get there.

    By Sam on January 4, 2012 3:48 PM

    Last year I wanted to go to Russia, but I forgot the check visa requirements (rookie error - what an idiot!) and didn't have enough time to get my papers and pay for the visa so I could not go.

    By Kimberly on January 4, 2012 3:52 PM

    My travel regret for 2011, is that I did not take more days off and enjoy vacation. My 2012 resolution is to take time for myself and travel more often. I am going to visit Georgia for the first time in April for business and I plan on taking an extra few days to take it all in!

    By MJ on January 4, 2012 3:56 PM

    Yellowstone! I've been all around it; this is the year to go.

    By Amber on January 4, 2012 5:53 PM

    I wanted to take a birthday trip to Hawaii so I could surf North Shore in 2011...didn't happen, but it's a new year, and the waves are still there...so I want to go for my birthday in two months! :)

    By Joel Slaff on January 4, 2012 5:55 PM

    I would love to travel to London, England. I went about five years ago with my parents and absolutely loved the city and all its culture.
    Luckily, I am now in a relationship with a resident Londoner, and I cannot wait to travel the city with her and have her show me London from a Londoner's point of view! I'm planning on traveling there this coming August.

    By Patty Majors on January 4, 2012 5:56 PM

    I'm in SE Michigan and have not been north for several years. Its time to get back up to Mackinac area and the UP..

    By Tim P on January 4, 2012 6:00 PM

    Resolute to get back to Jamaica for our anniverssary!

    By Pam Shumate on January 4, 2012 6:01 PM

    My trip is a simple one that would mean tlahe world to me.I would travel to Virginia to visit my Dad whom I didn't get to see during the Holidays.My Mom is also laid to rest there and it would allow me to visit her grave which I have only got to do twice in 8 years.

    By Brian Carriere on January 4, 2012 6:04 PM

    Regret not going to Disneyland with the kids! Planning for late 2012! Love it!

    By Enrique Marin on January 4, 2012 6:09 PM

    I hope to go to either Rome or Maui this year. I went to Rome back in 2004 & loved everything about it ... the culture ... Night life...etc. Last year I went to Honolulu and it was absolutely splendid. Therefore, I'd like to explore the other Hawaiian islands. Hopefully, I can put Maui in my bucket list. Of course, I'd prefer to stay at a Best Western at either destination.

    By JIm Majors on January 4, 2012 6:10 PM

    Need a trip to amish country in mid ohio to visit my brotther's widow

    By Leroy L on January 4, 2012 6:12 PM

    I"m in MIchigan and have family in southern Tennessee as well as Florida - need to get there to visit as they have health issues.

    By Laura E on January 4, 2012 6:17 PM

    Resolution in 2012 is to travel more. Would love to go to Europe staying in Best Western hotels. I have read reviews of several of the Best Western hotels there that sound wonderful.

    Would also love to go up to the North Shore of Lake Superior and stay in the Best Western in Grand Marais. I've read great reviews for this hotel, also.

    Really, I'm just happy traveling - locally or far away. I did quite a bit of travel last year but I do regret not picking up and going even more often!

    By john arih on January 4, 2012 7:04 PM

    I would like to travel to New York and run the marathon there

    By john arih on January 4, 2012 7:07 PM

    By Eva on January 4, 2012 8:18 PM

    my travel resolution for 2012 is to go to a country i haven't been before

    By Rhonda on January 5, 2012 12:08 AM

    I really wanted to take my kids to Oregon to see my sister, then down to Disneyland in 2011. Unfortunately, our home was flooded in May 2011 and so our plans had to wait. We are hoping to be able to make the trip in 2012, if we can save up the money.

    By LINDA DOWDY on January 5, 2012 12:36 AM

    I would love to take my grand-daughter to Oregon to see the gaint redwoods.

    By Slawomir on January 5, 2012 4:42 AM

    I would like to go this yaer to Iceland.

    By dermot on January 5, 2012 7:44 AM

    I was looking forward to returning to the beautiful Best Western Pismo Beach in 2011...We stayed there in 2010 and were so impressed, we planned to make it an annual event when we made our yearly visit to California to see relatives...Unfortunately, we had too many obligations last year. I hope to take the family once again this year.

    By Sheila Stevens on January 5, 2012 8:13 AM

    Ten years ago, a dear friend who used to live in Philadelphia, moved back to the town where she was born in Indiana for family reasons. Another friend and I are planning to drive up to see her for her 65th birthday in May. She doesn't know this yet - but we've already booked our stay at Best Western in Elkhart and plan to take in several of the area's festivities - Memorial Day opening of the Amish Quilt Garden and the famous Farmer's Market and Auction at Shipshewana. After all these years, the 3 of us being together again will be the very best present and a wonderful trip.

    By Krissy Rouse Higgins on January 5, 2012 8:20 AM

    My regret is I didn't come prepared enough for any of my trips! This year I plan to be prepared and make sure I plan ahead to enjoy every aspect of the trip I am looking forward to!

    By Michael Higgins on January 5, 2012 8:25 AM

    Wish I would of made it out to see my family for PLEASURE not for SICKNESS this year we will do that!

    By Al Young on January 5, 2012 8:26 AM

    My wife and I have traveled in or through 45 of the 50 states. This year 2012 we plan to include Oregon and Washington to bring the total to 47 states.

    By Kathy Rouse on January 5, 2012 8:27 AM

    I would love to take my grandkids on a trip this year!

    By Steve A. on January 5, 2012 8:31 AM

    Regret not camping & fishing in the Rocky Mountains as much and traveling to Durango in 2011. 2012 these trips will be made...

    By Amber R. on January 5, 2012 8:34 AM

    My Resolution this year is to make it to see my family and my fiance's family this year I know everyone wants to see how big our 17 month old has gotten!

    By Tracy on January 5, 2012 8:53 AM

    I have always wanted to travel to Australia and/or New Zealand. A friend of mine is going there on business this year so it might be my big chance to go!

    By shannon zarsang on January 5, 2012 8:53 AM

    By Bobbie Miller on January 5, 2012 8:55 AM

    Last year my family and I didn't get to go to the Outer Banks, NC like we wanted to so this year we are bound and determined to go! It's been 4 year's since we've been on a family vacation.

    By Tricia Mattson on January 5, 2012 8:59 AM

    Belize! Gotta get down there before the world ends in December right? Make sure those Mayan people oh so many years ago were correct?! Grimace........

    By Tricia Mattson on January 5, 2012 9:01 AM

    Belize!! I want to go to Belize! Have to get down there before the world ends in December.........not! Funky Mayans and their goofy calendar right?! The Belize Best Western Biltmore Plaza is calling my name..........

    By Ty on January 5, 2012 9:07 AM

    This October, I will be travelling to NYC for New York Comicon & Anime Festival! I am rounding up the family and hoping to "stay over" in NY to make the four day convention. It would be a shame to have to travel back and forth each day from PA to NY. The travel card would be a blessing for us!

    By Betsy on January 5, 2012 9:11 AM

    We are headed to Maui and Kauai in January. We are six months into location independence, so we will be doing a lot of blogging and traveling in 2012!

    By Sue Barney on January 5, 2012 9:11 AM

    My regreat is that I didnt do any traveling in 2011 and my resolution is to try to get to Tennessee this year to visit family :)

    By Roxana Lewis on January 5, 2012 9:17 AM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to fly Round-the-World and visit five new countries.

    By Danielle Ferguson on January 5, 2012 9:33 AM

    Haven't had a vacation in 7 years and our family resolution is to take at least one trip this year, no matter how short. Even if its only to San Francisco for a day or two. I have an 8 year old and a 2 year old, and I know they would have fun as long as we are in a hotel!

    By Jeff Swartz on January 5, 2012 9:36 AM

    I will travel to Berlin, Germany to discover an amazing city in the heart of Europe that I've always dreamed of visiting.

    By Nicole C. on January 5, 2012 9:36 AM

    My regret for 2011 was I was unable to make it out to Fl to see my grandmother when she was sick, and my travel resolution for 2012 is to go see her before its to late and to visit with my sister and her family...maybe go to Disney world. Life is to short so I am going to make the most of what I have in life and be joyful for all that is around me.

    By Kathy Mc on January 5, 2012 9:54 AM

    Hoping to get to Palm Springs to see the Follies. Also want to visit San Antonio, TX as well as Savannah, GA. Lots of places in the good old USA on my bucket list. Would also love to go to DC and NYC to take in all the sights!

    By Tina Bernstein on January 5, 2012 9:55 AM

    Well I have lived in 5 or 6 countries and worked and vacationed in close to 30 countries. I live in Los Angeles, and guess what, I have NEVER BEEN TO THE GRAND CANYON. So my wish for 2012 is to take a classic road trip, in my beater little PT Cruiser to the Grand Canyon. I plan to stop at Taco Bell along the way and when I get there would like to watch the sunset and drink a cold beer. Then I can check in to the comfy room at Best Western :-)

    By Todd White on January 5, 2012 10:01 AM

    My resolution for this year is to take more time out to travel. I didn't get to go anywhere last year and this year I would like to hit Las Vegas, California, and Hawaii. I also would like to be able to go visit some of my relatives that I haven't seen in a while on the other side of the country.

    By Cindy L on January 5, 2012 10:07 AM

    Every year I swear that I will visit Savannah and Charleston, but every year it slips through my fingers and something comes up. Maybe this will be the year!

    By Lynne B on January 5, 2012 10:19 AM

    I would dearly love to get back to Hawaii with my husband. We have been there a number of times but still haven't made it to the Big Island and I'd love to see it!

    By Lynne B on January 5, 2012 10:21 AM

    I'd dearly love to go back to Hawaii with my husband. We have been there a number of times but have yet to visit the Big Island and I'd love to visit there!

    By SC Flier on January 5, 2012 11:25 AM

    I'll return to Europe next month!

    By Michelle Bartley on January 5, 2012 11:33 AM

    Going to the 2012 CMA Festival in Nashville in June!

    By kt on January 5, 2012 11:35 AM

    How is it that I haven't been to Thailand yet? Catastrophe.
    This must be there year!

    By Brian L on January 5, 2012 11:42 AM

    My 2011 travel regret was only taking one short camping trip during 2011. My 2012 resolution is to get away from everyday stress more and make more time for me!

    By Jamie Herda on January 5, 2012 2:20 PM

    I would love to take our family to Fredericksburg, Virginia. My sophomore loves history and this would be so interesting, educational and relaxing.

    By Jamie Herda on January 5, 2012 2:22 PM

    I would love for our family of 3 to visit Fredericksburg, VA. My 16 year old loves History and this would be educational, fun and relaxing.

    By jessica marinaccio on January 5, 2012 3:56 PM

    I would love to see Montana Big Sky Country - take in the fresh air - hear the bugs see the beautiful stars see the sights

    By joe on January 5, 2012 4:03 PM

    I would go just about anywhere.

    By Melissa Parsley on January 5, 2012 4:52 PM

    I want to go see the Rockies...Ive never been farther west than KY and in my minds eye, I see a beautiful land loaded with picturesque views and snow so crisp and clean that you could eat. Its my dream to eventually go there.

    By Judy Colbert on January 5, 2012 5:57 PM

    I've been trying to take a road trip with my granddaughters for the past two years and we haven't been able to coordinate the times and places. Before I'm too old or they're too old, I'd sure like to take that trip this year.

    By Cynira C on January 5, 2012 8:33 PM

    I would love to travel to Brazil so I can take my boyfriend to Carnival!

    By Justin Wong on January 6, 2012 2:42 AM

    I was supposed to go to Thailand last year but then they had the massive flooding. I'm hoping to go this year and check out Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Phuket.

    By George Iversen on January 6, 2012 7:16 AM

    Looking forward to going back to Prague, CZ

    By Kelly Williams on January 6, 2012 7:59 AM

    I'm approaching a milestone birthday this year, and will finally be crossing a bucket-list destination off of my list...Greece! I would love to stay in style in Athens while greeting the cradle of democracy.

    By Tanya S on January 6, 2012 8:42 AM

    I would love to go on a cruise

    By Laura F on January 6, 2012 1:07 PM

    I regret that we did not take the big family vacation last yest but plan on doing it this one.

    By Stacey Shipe on January 6, 2012 1:48 PM

    I would like to travel to VA Beach with my kids this year!

    By Katie on January 6, 2012 6:55 PM

    My resolution is to look into those not-so-famous places and see what they have to offer! :)

    By Aaron on January 6, 2012 6:58 PM

    My plan this year for 2012 is to see Europe. I have family there and I have never gone!

    By Aaron on January 6, 2012 6:59 PM

    My plans for 2012 is to see Europe. I have family there but I have never gone!

    By Maxim on January 6, 2012 7:06 PM

    Lets go to Costa Rica!

    By Andrei O. on January 6, 2012 7:17 PM

    My biggest regret is not having enough time to visit Universal Orlando during our WDW vacation last year. There just wasn't enough time to do both.

    By Sherry Lynn on January 6, 2012 7:37 PM

    I was hoping to travel to Germany in 2011 to visit a friend. Unfortunately it was not to be. I am hoping to go in 2012.

    By Natalie on January 6, 2012 7:46 PM

    I want to take my daughter to Disney. She more than deserves it after living with juvenile arthritis. Did you know kids get arthritis too?

    By pamr. on January 6, 2012 7:47 PM

    I regret that we didn't take an extra day to go to Drumheller, Alberta

    By Marilyn Legault on January 6, 2012 7:47 PM

    I could only fit one trip to Pittsburgh to visit our new grandson because of work commitments. Staying with them is a problem as the apt. is small and I have to stay at a nearby hotel. Price is an issue for more than a few trips a year.

    By Jan on January 6, 2012 7:48 PM

    Travel Regret - Not being able to get to Panama during the 6 month span my friend was living there.

    By CG on January 6, 2012 8:07 PM

    My biggest travel regret is having travel regrets in the first place!

    I need to stop worrying about what I will regret and instead enjoy the trip!

    I can't go everywhere (though I will happily try) and I assume that I will be going back.

    By cara trotter on January 6, 2012 8:12 PM

    i would love to see the east coast of canada, ive been many places but regret that ive never made it to see this part of canada

    By Best H on January 6, 2012 8:17 PM

    By Bohden on January 6, 2012 8:20 PM

    Somewhere I did not get to travel to on 2011 which I would like to in 2012 is to travel to UAE (Dubai).

    Want to travel to Punta Cana

    By Brett on January 6, 2012 8:51 PM

    Not being able to enjoy Maui! In 2012 we're going to the Jamaica to make up for it!

    By JEREMY C on January 6, 2012 9:02 PM

    I REGRET NOT WINIING ANY GREAT TRIPS IN 2011

    By Angela on January 6, 2012 9:25 PM

    My travel resolution is to spend my 40th birthday this spring on the beach anywhere in Mexico! Sun, sand, and sangria!

    By Amanda on January 6, 2012 9:29 PM

    Thid year, I will travel alone for the first time in my life. I will also do it completely spur of the moment instead of having an itinerary for everything. The rough plan is to enjoy the DC area and head down there by car from Canada. Time to leave my kids and husband at home for once and find myself again.

    By Chie S on January 6, 2012 9:31 PM

    My husband and I went to Las Vegas last year. We spent way too much time and money at the casinos. We should have gone to see more shows instead...
    "Travel resolution for 2012" Stay away from the casinos and put more money into Arts and Culture!

    By James Brown on January 6, 2012 9:55 PM

    I plan to take more trips around Canada, so this would be great

    By Jurgen Deagle on January 6, 2012 10:05 PM

    Tasmania Australia, Tried through a work exchange, but came in second place. My brother and sister live there. For several years we have been talking about going, but it is a lot of $ for a family of 5.

    By Robert on January 6, 2012 10:26 PM

    i will travel to rome this year in the summer, i hope!

    By kent marley on January 6, 2012 10:27 PM

    travelled to New Zealand and decided not to go swimming with the dolphins - should have just gone for it... will be quite a while before the next opportunity.

    By Kimberly on January 6, 2012 10:27 PM

    Hawaii!

    By EMU on January 6, 2012 10:46 PM

    I didn't coin the phrase 'I AM CANADIAN', but rejoice in that fact that I am. Have visited many provinces and remember dipping my toes in the Atlantic Ocean. In 2012, to establish a new memory with my 8 year old son, a vacation to Nova Scotia would be ideal. Nightly we envision a trip there. To have lobster, go clam digging, fishing, breathe the salt ocean air and with footprints in the sand, dip our toes in the ocean surf, a lifetime memory to cherish.

    By rita turk on January 6, 2012 11:19 PM

    I had to work at the last min my relief got sicklll

    By Ron on January 6, 2012 11:35 PM

    Going to Spain to collect rocks

    By Heather Holmberg on January 6, 2012 11:55 PM

    I had the opportunity to drive across Canada to BC ...and I didnt go ... looking at my friends pictures afterwards, made me regret it instantly ! Its definately on my summer of 2012 list.

    By Huguette English on January 7, 2012 2:31 AM

    I've never been to a beach resort, that's the plan for this year, now to decide where.

    By laura on January 7, 2012 3:40 AM

    I would love to go to vancouver

    By Maria Goulart on January 7, 2012 4:49 AM

    Hopefully Florida, never been there!

    By cc on January 7, 2012 4:56 AM

    My travel resolution is to make a strict budget to adhere to when I go on my trip so I will not overspend!

    By andrea on January 7, 2012 5:53 AM

    We don't get the opportunity to travel much, due to budget restrictions. At my hubby's Christmas 2010 work party, we were extremely lucky to win a travel voucher. Our vacation in April 2011 (which was kind of our honeymoon, except it was on our 4th anniversary) was great!, but I regret the fact that we didn't choose a family trip and bring our 3 yr old. My 2012 travel resolution is to somehow get our now 4 yr old daughter to a beach, as she really wants to go to one! Winning would make that much easier :)

    My husband and I moved to the Twin Cities two Augusts ago and we said to ourselves that we want to visit as many places we can up north before moving on to our next place. With times being hard we are only able to go on one or two trips a year. This summer we want to travel to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, stay in Rapid City and swing over to the Badlands. It will be a great trip once we figure out all the details. Winning would make this trip a lot easier on the pocketbook! Thanks for doing this giveaway! :-D

    My biggest travel regret of 2011 was not going to the Calgary stampede. This has always been a dream of mine and I live in Ontario so I was planning to drive. Well things came up and we were unable to go. This year we are going no matter what! I all ready have our stampede tickets in my filing cabinet. The hotel rooms are booked and we are really looking forward to it. This gift card would help us out so much because as coincidence has it we are booked in at the Best Western in Calgary! Then we are heading to Edmonton and I am booked into a Best Western there as well for 2 nights. Sure looking forward to visiting the west!

    I am traveling to Rome this year and will never take the train ever again as last time I was in Rome the gypsies were following us everywhere!

    My only travel regret in 2011 was that we didn't stay in NYC longer!

    My biggest travel regret in 2011 was visiting my in-laws in Quebec. Enough said...

    By Steve on January 7, 2012 9:12 AM

    My biggest regret was not going to Oakland over Thanksgiving to see my sister! My parents live in Seattle and I live in Connecticut, but she lives with her husband in Oakland. Unfortunately, they both had to work over thanksgiving and christmas, so even though I went to Seattle to see my parents for both holidays, I didn't get to see my sister. I should have gone to Oakland instead for thanksgiving!

    I regret that I haven't made it to the rock and roll hall of fame in Cleveland in 2011, but I will go in 2012.

    By Kathy Boring on January 7, 2012 10:59 AM

    I have never been to Las Vegas and would love to go there this year.

    I would like to travel to London on 2012.

    My regret travelling abroad in 2011: When I was in Europe, thinking I had way more euro in my pocket than needed (the second last day), I started paying everything in cash. Only found out I need cash on the last morning :(

    By Kris Labotne on January 7, 2012 1:33 PM

    I want to travel to the okanogan this summer

    By Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard on January 7, 2012 2:25 PM

    We have resolved to travel some where we have never been during 2012

    By James Wilkinson on January 7, 2012 3:34 PM

    My wife & I stayed at Best Western in White Bear Lake, MN back in September. It was a very nice room with a fireplace & dinning area. They even left little rubber duckies for us on the towels by the sink & hot tub in the room! I had the room reserved a month in advance, but still didn't get it for more than 1 night, so we stayed the in Minneapolis & Wisconsin & Iowa the rest of our vacation seeing other areas. If I had booked the room earlier, we possibly could have stayed in White Bear Lake longer, but it was obviously a popular place to stay last September.

    In 2012, it would be nice to visit Washington state with my wife. I'll be saving up points to use on the trip, so we'll possibly be flying or riding Amtrak with Best Western rewards when we go. Staying in so many hotels for work means staying for free on vacation.

    By Rebecca R on January 7, 2012 3:54 PM

    I regret not taking more road trips in 2011. This year I really plan to ramp up the road trips, and get out as often as possible, with the help of Best Western of course! :)

    By Christina T on January 7, 2012 4:15 PM

    I hope to actually get a chance to travel this year.

    By Tracey C on January 7, 2012 4:22 PM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to get in the car and drive. We moved last year and it made it difficult with quiting my job and starting over. Now that it's been 6 months and I feel we're settling in I want to just get out and enjoy where ever the road takes us. Let's explore

    By Loni on January 7, 2012 4:34 PM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to travel down to the US for my 5th year high school reunion!

    By Ricki911 on January 7, 2012 4:48 PM

    My regrets were not being prepared and taking time. I tend to leave everything to the last minute then rush forget things or so on. My resolution this year is to prepare more and research prior to booking everything,

    By Debbie F on January 7, 2012 4:49 PM

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western in Tofino a few years ago and that is where he proposed to me. The hotel was right on the beach and we loved it. We haven't had a chance to get back there since but it is where I would like to visit again someday.

    By joyce s. on January 7, 2012 4:51 PM

    My travel regrets for 2011 is that I didn't travel at all. I would like to resolve to travel at least once or twice in 2012 (maybe get married too). A $250 gift card would certainly help us make travel plans. Thanks for the contest!

    By Jennifer on January 8, 2012 12:47 AM

    My travel regret is I didn't travel at all. I would like to have a few days to travel this year!

    By Shelley on January 8, 2012 6:01 AM

    Since we are moving this year we will have to settle for a mini holiday. We are thinking of going back to Cincinnati Ohio. We went there about 4 years ago and it is a great place set on the beautiful Ohio River. This time I want to take a cruise on the Ohio River, go to the Cincinatti Zoo, their children's museum in the old railway terminal, and since my kids love rides we have to return to King's Island.

    By Kim on January 8, 2012 7:56 AM

    My resolution this year is to do at least two weekend getaways. It is always nice and refreshing to step away from the grind for a couple of days.

    By Sharon on January 8, 2012 8:03 AM

    By Sabrina on January 8, 2012 9:06 AM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to get away for at least one night with my significant other as we have never had a night away alone.

    By ETHAN on January 8, 2012 9:25 AM

    Actually use all my vacation days this year.

    By leighann on January 8, 2012 9:37 AM

    My regret is my recent first trip to florida, that I didn't sit back and relax and enjoy the time there. Next time I will sit my arse on the beach and just chill.

    By GS on January 8, 2012 9:38 AM

    went on vacation this past summer in San Diego, but felt i was racing around to much with daily acitvities. One must properly plan enough time to relax, that would be a regret. However, always looking forward to the next vacation and staying at BW.

    By Michelle Washburn on January 8, 2012 9:38 AM

    I wish I would have traveled to San Francisco, CA with my daughter. We would have really have enjoyed are selves. We have friends and family ther and we are going this year! No more regrets!

    By Sara Schafer on January 8, 2012 9:38 AM

    I'd like to see the New England area and Niagra Falls for the first time. My husband hasn't been either and we'd like to take our kids to see the beautify of this area of the country.

    By Angie Weightman on January 8, 2012 9:39 AM

    I love the beach so much. I have fibro and nerve damage in my feet. Being at the beach always makes me feel so much better. Not sure if it is the warmth, salt air but it works. I really like going to Destin to just relax. Did not get to go in 2011 so 2012 may be the right fit.

    By Karen on January 8, 2012 9:39 AM

    I was born in TN and went back every summer until about 10 years ago. I would love to see the mountains again and visit family.

    By Wendi C on January 8, 2012 9:40 AM

    I would love to visit my family back in Idaho, I moved to New York City a year ago for school and have not been able to make it back for a while.

    By Greg on January 8, 2012 9:40 AM

    Instead of always going to the US on vacation, spend time time exploring Canada, preferably the East Coast

    By Ron Bauer on January 8, 2012 9:40 AM

    I regret that I was unable to take my family to Eygpt. With the political problems in the country, I'm hoping to go either this year or maybe next year.....or maybe the year after that!

    By Heather-Anne Gillis on January 8, 2012 9:41 AM

    I have a very full travel year. I am hoping to go to Cincinnati this June to a conference and hope to see the Pompeii and French painters exhibit while I am there. My second trip will include Boston, to visit a friend, Ottawa, to see the Mayan and Van Gogh exhibits, Toronto, to see the Picasso exhibit, Stratford, to see plays, and London and Cambridge to visit family. And I am sure I will be staying at some Best Westerns while I am there!

    By Leticia a. on January 8, 2012 9:43 AM

    I want to take my son to Disney World. That was my plan last year, but things haven't been going as planned this new 2012! By the way things are going, looks like I wont be able to. Not losing hope though!

    to visit the oceans of the world

    By jodi hess on January 8, 2012 9:44 AM

    We have been wanting to go somewhere for the last few years, but our finances have made it difficult. We love the beach and would like to try to go this year! But seriously, any place laid back and quiet would be just fine. Would love to go to Sea World or an aquarium, I love the ocean.

    By Cheryl on January 8, 2012 9:44 AM

    I would like to go home to CT and MA to visit grandkids and family.

    By Candace T. on January 8, 2012 9:45 AM

    I regret never taking a trip alone with my fiancee. Once we get married this summer, we plan on driving to the Black Hills and then continue on down to Denver. This will be some much needed alone time.

    By Norman Seeff on January 8, 2012 9:46 AM

    I'm sorry I didn't stay in a Best Western this last time we took a car trip at the end of the year(2011); we stayed at another and didn't not appreciate the lack of amenities that every Best Western we've ever stayed in had! We will only be staying at Best Western on any and all trips!

    By Kevin W on January 8, 2012 9:46 AM

    Would like to travel to Kansas or Minnesota to visit some friends.

    By Melanie Conner on January 8, 2012 9:46 AM

    We would love to take a beach vacation to Myrtle Beach or Northern Florida. We have a 12 year old and a baby on the way and we really wanted to take one last family vacation before the baby arrives, but because of our tight budget we were unable too.

    By George Morin on January 8, 2012 9:46 AM

    My travel regret for 2011 was my arrival in Sorrento, Italy.

    I left Rome early in the morning, and two trains later I arrive in Sorrento, where I have already booked a hotel for the stay. Walk down the Corso Italia and arrive at my hotel. Front desk is expecting me. Then I discover my passport is gone.

    Many phone calls later, my stay in Sorrento, and trips to Capri and Pompeii are gone. I leave at six AM the next morning to return to Rome and get a new passport.

    Spent the final three days of my vacation at a beach hotel in Fiumicino.

    By stacy Buckner on January 8, 2012 9:47 AM

    I will be traveling this year to a lot of Nascar races. Also may think about takin a trip before my son starts college in fall.

    By Stacy Bauer on January 8, 2012 9:50 AM

    Two of my sisters went to Myrtle Beach summer of 2011. My husband and I would like to go to Myrtle Beach and see why everyone love's it so much there and our wedding anniversary is June 9th. That would be awesome to spend our anniversary there!!

    By Louis D on January 8, 2012 9:50 AM

    There are many places that I would love to see this year with the Washington DC area being #1. There is so much to see when it comes to buildings and history. As a photographer, I would love to take advantage of the sights to really add to my collection. Of course the 2nd place in the US would be the Pacific Northwest with Iceland being close behind that.

    By Ken Beerup on January 8, 2012 9:50 AM

    I have never been to Alaska and would love to go.

    By Cynthia on January 8, 2012 9:51 AM

    I really wanted to go to The King Biscuit Festival in Helena, AK last year. That will definitely have to be a destination for 2012 as well as Kansas City.

    By cindy northcutt on January 8, 2012 9:52 AM

    I would love to go to the Best Western in Williams Arizona again.The Grand Canyon is nearby. Loved it! Then head North for a few days.

    Maybe this year I'll get to Tuscany, Portugal, or Australia.

    By Wendy on January 8, 2012 9:53 AM

    By Anne White on January 8, 2012 9:53 AM

    I want to take my grand niece to Colorado. She is 15 and her mom (my niece that we raised) died in a car accident in April of 2011. She is such an amazing child and is dealing with her mother's death as best she can. I think she deserves a trip!

    I would like to go to Old Town San Diego with my wife and just relax for a couple of day. We used o go there when we were younger, but it has been difficult these last several years.

    By Myrna Mallett on January 8, 2012 9:54 AM

    I has a cruise booked but broke up with my husband shortly prior to departure. He went alone and I stayed home. Story of my life, had no vacation at all last year. I hope this year I get the opportunity to travel somewhere exciting.

    I will be traveling to Hawaii for the first time this year! Cannot wait! :D

    By Celeste Kautz on January 8, 2012 9:54 AM

    Regrets: not enough travel, an obvious one I know but more specifically I want to go to every State in the US and last year I didn't go to a single new State, this year I am going to go to at least one new State and have a look around.

    By John Joseph on January 8, 2012 9:55 AM

    By Samantha on January 8, 2012 9:56 AM

    I would love to travel to New Orleans. There is so much history New Orleans and I think it would be remarkable to see the re-building of the city after rising from the catastrophic event of the Hurricane that occurred there.

    By Donna Corlyn on January 8, 2012 9:56 AM

    My husband and I would like to visit New York City and see the sights. Both our daughters have been there and love the City, now it its our turn so I say, BRING IT!!!

    I just want to be able to go on a road trip with my husband and daughter. I want her to remember getting to go on great vacations as a child and how much fun we had. Maybe a trip to the Grand Canyon or to the Smoky Mountains. Any where with my family would be great.

    By Sari Shepard on January 8, 2012 9:59 AM

    No travel all work 2011. But have Plans for trip sometime this 2012,hopefully.

    By pam on January 8, 2012 9:59 AM

    we were in denver for a wedding and just didn't have the time to get down to springs and hike through the garden of the gods and get over to the air force academy. Well a good reason to get back out there!

    By Dan Black on January 8, 2012 10:02 AM

    We did not get to California so I could drive a locomotive from my bucket list. This is on the list for 2012 and we have already selected the BW to stay in while we are there. We are also going to check out another BW in Los Angeles for a future trip to CA to catch a 28 day cruise to the South Pacific. Best Western leads the way and we stay at them whenever possible.

    By Lynn on January 8, 2012 10:03 AM

    I didn't make it to a relative's wedding in Albuquerque, NM in 2011. Family is too important to miss big events like that! I will hopefully make it for a visit in 2012!

    By Diane on January 8, 2012 10:03 AM

    I wanted to go to New York City to spend time w/ my kids.Due to ill health was unable to do so .hope to do it sometime in 2012!

    By lynne moore on January 8, 2012 10:04 AM

    My regret is that I keep getting close to crater lake (within visiting distance) but never actually get to drive to the lake. I am really making an effort to do just that this year, hopefully on the motorcycle.

    By david pyle on January 8, 2012 10:05 AM

    My travel regret this year is we didn't go anywhere!!!!

    This year I hope to take the kids to California and maybe go to England to see family and friends!

    By Janet on January 8, 2012 10:05 AM

    We moved to the east coast in 2010 and haven't had the chance to visit New York City yet. So if I'd win this travel check I can finally go and check out the Big Apple!

    By Donna on January 8, 2012 10:06 AM

    Would like soooo much to get back to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to see the sights, shop, and enjoy delicious meals! Good luck to all !

    Would very much like to get back to the Miss.Gulf Coast for shopping, dining, and sightseeing. Good luck, everyone.

    By Peter Cruise on January 8, 2012 10:08 AM

    I have always wanted to explore around Flathead Lake and this year I will go. I plan to stay at Polson and use the BW there as my base of operations.

    By Courtney K. on January 8, 2012 10:08 AM

    Last year I stepped out on faith & came to New York for a 3 month internship but due to finances was unable to see the city. Imagine everyday for 3 mons being in a magical city like NYC and never getting to take it in due to having to run & catch my train to return to NJ where I was staying. I have moved to NJ with family and would love to have a weekend in NYC to explore. The past year has been stressful and full of hardships but a weekend to relax and take in the new year would be a blessing. I have sacrificed so much to achieve my dream I find I no longer know what luxuries of life are at the age of 25. I know life is too short & I am losing valuable years. So I am setting a goal for a weekend in NYC for R & R, sightseeing, picture taking, and people watching.

    By Edna on January 8, 2012 10:09 AM

    Deffinitely to tour Texas.

    By Melissa on January 8, 2012 10:10 AM

    By Mae on January 8, 2012 10:14 AM

    I had a desire to visit Eureka Springs, AR in 2011 and I intend to make it there this summer. I heard the fresh, magical springs help aches and pains and I cannot wait to try it out.

    Its been years since i have visited my aunt and cousins in Pismo Beach. She turned 80 in Feb of last year and i wanted to be there for her birthday. She looks and talks just like my mother who past away in 1982 at only 57 . I still miss her and being around my aunt and cousins brings back great memories. Would love to take them to one of my favorite places in the area Solvang and have some fun.

    By Debra on January 8, 2012 10:16 AM

    By bill martin on January 8, 2012 10:21 AM

    My aunt turned 80 last year and could not get off work to visit her in Pismo Beach for her 80th birthday in February. She acts talks and looks just like mu mom who died when i was 27 in 1982. So when I am with her and my cousins who also live in area it brings back so many great memories.

    By Angie on January 8, 2012 10:27 AM

    We are planning a trip to lower Florida in March with some friends (we stayed at Key West at Best Western last March and loved it). We love to ride our motorcycles but didn't get a lot of chances last year due to my husband's knee replacement surgery in May 2011. We were planning on going to Door County, Wisconsin last July but couldn't due to his recovery. That is now our plan this year. Hoping to find a Best Western up there to stay in there.

    By NvAngel on January 8, 2012 10:30 AM

    I would like to travel to the area that I grew up in, Durango, Co. I have not been there for over 20 years and would like to show my family where I grew up, my son's great grandparents had a farm/orchard and where I went to school.

    By Carrie H on January 8, 2012 10:32 AM

    Our resolution trip for 2012 is to take 4 weeks and travel the US from Canada. We drove to San Fransisco, Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Twin Falls, Page, Cle Elum etc in 2010. It has been our dream to do it again but spend more than 13 days in 7 states as we did in 2010. We would love to relive our first trip but stay longer and see more :) Our trip in 2010 was solely staying Best Western Hotels-the only way we stay!

    By John Simons on January 8, 2012 10:32 AM

    I really want to travel to New York this year. It's the one place in the US that I haven't been to that I really want to see

    By larry baze on January 8, 2012 10:33 AM

    I used to go to vegas every year meet some friends from school for our own reunion. I had to miss it last year and maybe this year as well... With the way economy is i am grateful for my job working hard for little pay hoping i can get a little get away back to sin city. Happy new year all. :)

    By Shawn on January 8, 2012 10:38 AM

    I have no regrets for 2011. I actually had three great trips which is more than usual. In 2012 I'd love to get back to my favorite BW in Franconia NH. I have been five times now and can never get enough of it.

    By Ellen B on January 8, 2012 10:38 AM

    I regret not going to the beach last year. I will go to the beach this year! I want to go for a weekend away with my husband. I hope that we make it this year. It's been so long since we have seen the ocean! Destination: Hampton Beach, New Hampshire!!!!

    12 years ago, my mother and I shared a wonderful vacation in Albuferia,Portugal,for 15 fantastic days. It was a celebration after her Chemotherapy treatments were done. Unfortunately, my mother has since passed away, but I would love to return to Portugal and visit the places her and I did. It truly was a real mother/daughter vacation and I would just love to go back and share it with my husband. We created many wonderful memories there and it is those memories I would love to revisit one day.

    My wife wants to go to someplace warm. We have not vacationed in about 15 years. We live where it is cold. I would love to take her to Florida but it costs too much. Would be great to just visit the coast and have some fun in the summertime.

    By mariann on January 8, 2012 10:52 AM

    My Son is getting Married on 3/3/12 we are so excited. A group of us are looking into staying at a Best Western in North Dartmouth,MA . WOW if I won the $250, I could surprise a few guests and pay for there rooms.

    I would like to travel back to Italy. We were in Rome in September 2011, and stayed at the Best Western Canada. Beautiful rooms, great service etc. From there we spent a week in Tuscany.

    By Tammy Way on January 8, 2012 10:55 AM

    We would like to go Italy in September, specifically Tuscany.

    This year my travel destination is Bath Ontario for a family wedding and reunion with cousins whom I haven't seen in almost forty years. This trip has been a long time in the making and although I won't be travelling until July each day is filled with anticipation for what I hope will be a heart-warming reunion.

    By sylvia maxson on January 8, 2012 11:02 AM

    We just found my husbands father after 48 years, they finally met last March for the first time. If we had the ability to travel we would make every effort to go visit him once a month, so that they could establish a relationship. My husbands father is 80 yrs old, so time is a valuable thing right now, and getting to know one another for them is a gift of a lifetime.

    By shannon delorey on January 8, 2012 11:03 AM

    In 2011 my husband Jack & I finally traveled to Praire du Chein in our beautiful state of Wi. We stayed at the Best Western there and have ONLY positive remarks- so very accomidating. Our regret? that we waited so long. After 34 years of owning a cottage in our northern part of the state we decided to venture and see what Wis. all has to offer. Note, we are both with handicap health so to find your facilities so kind and helpful meant so much. Now in 2012- we are traveling to Florida for a couple of weeks and have booked stays with Best Western. We Thank You and Happy New Year

    By Bren on January 8, 2012 11:24 AM

    I have no regrets from last year, my husband and I rode our sportsters 6,500km to the Grand Canyon from Victoria, BC, staying at a number of Best Western's over a 2 week period. This summer we will be riding across Canada to the Canadian National HOG Rally in Moncton, NB, returning back to Vancouver Island through the northern United States with many, many stops at Best Western's over 3 1/2 weeks and 13,000km. We love Best Western's Ride Rewards!

    By Roberta on January 8, 2012 11:24 AM

    We would really like to go to Banff and Lake Louise in Canada. The photos we have seen of the area are really very beautiful.

    By ruth schappert on January 8, 2012 11:27 AM

    My daughter and I would love to take a vacation together. We have never been on a "real" vacation and would love to be able to take her to East Tennessee. We have a lot of family there that she has never met.
    I would also love to be able to take her to Disney World. I believe every child deserves to go at least once.

    By Andrea on January 8, 2012 11:27 AM

    My biggest regret would be traveling home from Toronto to Michigan on the 4th of July. We waited in line for 2.5 hours until we were back in Michigan. Never cross a border on a holiday!!

    By DK on January 8, 2012 11:28 AM

    We went to Gettysburg in 1997--have said for years we would like to make a return visit--maybe this year?

    By Linda Beckman on January 8, 2012 11:41 AM

    I am ready to go to New Orleans, was there once long ago and got to spend all of one rainy afternoon. No street artists, no jazz and no beignets... I need to go back and spend days!

    By Linda Beckman on January 8, 2012 11:45 AM

    I would love to go to New Orleans. I was there once many years ago and was only able to spend one rainy afternoon. So because of the weather... no street artists, no jazz, no beignets.... I need to go back and spend several days, to really experience that wonderful city!

    By Dawn on January 8, 2012 11:54 AM

    My travel plans for 2012 would involve a trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and visiting friends, shopping, going to the beach, and relaxing by the pool. I would love to stay at the Best Western in Biloxi across from the casinos. Never stayed there before, though it looks like a nice place to stay.

    By Toni Roehlke on January 8, 2012 11:54 AM

    I would love to travel anywhere with my children. They want to visit the ocean and collect seashells!

    By tonyia on January 8, 2012 11:55 AM

    I really regret not being able to travel to the Carribean this year because my husband had an accident last October 2010 and has been disabled. So mine has been the only income. Not quite enough to stretch all the way to Cozumel or surrounding areas.

    By Marilyn Kidd on January 8, 2012 12:00 PM

    Planning a cruise to the Caribbean in November 2012. Really looking forward to going on a cruise again - last cruise was 2006.

    By Michele Woloshyn on January 8, 2012 12:01 PM

    My plans for 2012 are to take advantage of any travel time I can get with my kids and husband, as life is to short to not enjoy time any time you can get together with your family.

    By WILLIAM HETHCOAT on January 8, 2012 12:02 PM

    I would love to travel to Hawaii.

    By Kyra G on January 8, 2012 12:05 PM

    My resolution this year is to hit the road and visit my family in Southern California (Sister, Uncles, Aunts and Cousins) because it has been way to long since I saw them! And then I need to hit the road again with my boyfriend to go to Kentucky as that is where his mom lives, and that way I can finally see where he grew up (and maybe I will get to see the Louisville Cardinals play too;). This year is family focused!

    By Leigh Coote on January 8, 2012 12:06 PM

    We want to travel either to Seaside, Oregon or Deadwood, SD in August of 2012. We are heading to Bucerias, Mexico in April :)

    My regret is that I didn't get to visit my very dearest & best friend in Florida because of having major car trouble. I am really hoping to make the trip within the next few months.

    By nell Gentry on January 8, 2012 12:32 PM

    Just really need a get away anywhere, Just to rest the mind.

    By Carla Ala-Kantti on January 8, 2012 12:46 PM

    We've been saving for over a year to take our 7 year old son someplace that none of us have ever been where there are interesting animals and sandy beaches and sun because friends of his have taken trips like this and he wants to be able to compare stories with them! The travel card would certainly help make things easier!

    By Danny on January 8, 2012 12:50 PM

    I'd desperately like to visit Paris this year. I've been saying that for quite a while now but I am thinking this year it might finally happen.

    By Antonella Mongioi on January 8, 2012 12:59 PM

    In 2012, i would like to travel to Hollywood, Florida to visit my boyfriend. We have a long distance relationship. We have been seeing each other for over a year and we travel back and forth to see each other until he finds a job and can move to NJ. We see each other every 2 months so I would love to win a travel gift card.

    By Nick O. on January 8, 2012 12:59 PM

    I regret that I have never been to Atlantic City, even though I live on the east coast, and that's where I am going to go this year.

    we are going back to Pigeon Forge this year,but the regret I have for 2011 is not going back to Disney,so that is my hope for this year,to get back there while the kids are still young and at home!

    By Ron Bissonnette on January 8, 2012 1:06 PM

    I'd love to go to Hawaii

    By RHONDA SMITH on January 8, 2012 1:07 PM

    I did not get to go to a Nascar race in 2011 & I wish I could go to every race. Since that is not possible I would love to go to just one race this year. Either Homestead-Miami or maybe Phoenix. But more than that I would love to see Best Western on the side of Tommy Baldwin Racing's car driven by David Rerutimann.

    By Guy Dionne on January 8, 2012 1:09 PM

    In 2012, I wish a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada

    By Michelle H on January 8, 2012 1:09 PM

    my regret is not going toi Disney in 2011 so hoping to get there in 2012 before the kids are older and not at home anymore!

    I'm going to New York city in the fall with some friends and staying at the BW Hospitality House. I love the city and look forward to going back!

    I wish we could have gone to New England and taken our daughter in 2011. We spent a week at Roadhouse Inn in Boston in 2009 and then spent a night in each New England state over the week that followed. So sorry that our daughter was unavailable to come with us.

    By Nadine on January 8, 2012 1:29 PM

    We got married in Hawaii 11 years ago and have wanted to go back ever since. We hope 2012 will be that year.

    By Donna Bitting on January 8, 2012 1:29 PM

    I would love to go to Spain for our anniversary and do Tapas tastings and visit the Freixenet winery. Spain is one of those places that I imagine is Romantic and a beautiful place to tour.

    By Henry C. on January 8, 2012 1:34 PM

    I would like to travel to Hawaii in 2012 !

    By Megan on January 8, 2012 1:37 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 was that I didn't take a vacation because of family issues and medical reasons. My resolution for 2012 is to go on a road trip to some place I have never been like Key West, FL.

    By Anna C on January 8, 2012 1:37 PM

    I'd like to travel to Pennsylvania in 2012. I didn't get a chance to go there in 2011

    By Janet on January 8, 2012 1:41 PM

    I plan to go visit my uncle in New Orleans and my cousin in San Antonio this year. None of us is getting any younger and talking on the phone just isn't enough!

    By lanell on January 8, 2012 1:43 PM

    I would love to travel to the northeastern part of the US--NY--MASS-PA--etc

    By Janet on January 8, 2012 1:45 PM

    I live in Indianapolis & most of my family is within 200 miles. However, I have an uncle in New Orleans & a cousin in San Antonio, with whom I am close, but do not often get to visit. In 2012, I hope to make a road trip to visit both of them.

    By Jeyn Miller on January 8, 2012 1:46 PM

    I am planning on traveling through the Southern US this year. I am currently in Cali and am going to make my way through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia and Louisiana (and maybe a couple of others). This year is all about the journey for me!

    By Lynn Bruneau on January 8, 2012 1:52 PM

    Did a 9500 mile trip to the northwest in 2011 but missed the Pacific Coast Highway, Oregon and Washington. Hoping to go back in 2012.

    By Susan on January 8, 2012 1:53 PM

    I regret not being able to make it up to NC to see my sister & nephews due to an extended illness. My eldest nephew is getting married May 2012 in Asheville NC and would love to be able to attend.

    By Susan on January 8, 2012 1:56 PM

    To the Beach - any beach to hear the ocean sounds, to walk in the sand and have the waves cover your feet as you walk along looking for treasures. To smell the salty air and feel the peace that being at the beach can bring.

    By Kim Timon on January 8, 2012 2:00 PM

    Aloha...I really really really wanna go to Hawaii this year...hopefully in April, if my boss will give me the time off. Every time I think about it I get chills and goosebumps =)

    I'd like to go to Florida again and see some new and old places there.

    By Vanessa on January 8, 2012 2:04 PM

    I would love to take my kids on a nice family vacation to anywhere... before they all move out of my house. We go camping every year they love it, but going someplace HOT would be very nice since for the last few years it rained soo much on us while we were camping. My oldest son just joined the Army, so soon they will all be on their own... so a trip such as this would be an AWESOME memory :) ty

    By Tracie Vandermeulen on January 8, 2012 2:04 PM

    My regret is that I didn't get to take my boys to Disney World in 2011. We have been trying but the funds just aren't there. Maybe 2012 will be the year they get to go see Mickey!

    I will be travelling to Cuba this year. I have been to cuba many times before and am looking forward to visit this lovely island again. It is a beautiful place full of culture.

    By Marica T on January 8, 2012 2:11 PM

    Haven't had a vacation in years, so that would be my regret for 2011. Have been thinking about a weekend trip to Vegas in 2012, but still haven't committed to it. It would be a fun and frivolous getaway, even if just for a couple of days.

    By Holly C. on January 8, 2012 2:13 PM

    my travel regret was not going to New Orleans to visit a friend who had lived there for 5 years, now tells me she is moving to Honduras.

    By colleen L on January 8, 2012 2:16 PM

    I will vacation where ever my kids sports take me!

    By Barbara Koepsell on January 8, 2012 2:19 PM

    Since we just found long-lost relatives in Australia it would be nice to go and
    visit them and see more of the vast country - this time to the extreme north
    and western parts.

    Travel Regret, there is never enough time. Taking my mother to South Dakota for her 90th birthday celebration. Meeting other family there. She misses the Black Hills.

    By Wendi Maroon on January 8, 2012 2:27 PM

    Written and sent Dec.7, 2012

    My travel resolutions for 2012:
    1. Don't visit the same place twice. I seemed to have developed a habit...I go away, I love the place and it's become a travel 'comfort zone' so to speak, I go back. I've done that about 5 times. This year I resolve to step out of my comfort zone (which I do with east first visit anyway) and experience a different place each vacation.

    2. As I take two vacations a year (being a lover of hot, and I do mean hot!) destinations I resolve to take one tropical vacation a year and the other elsewhere without consideration for weather. I spent 10 days in Italy in the fall only because my best friend begged me to. I wouldn't have chosen it myself, now I'm extremely happy I went.

    By Johna DeRosier on January 8, 2012 2:34 PM

    I didnt get to go to California on November 16, 2010, My nephew was killed in a car accident, and we couldn't go to his services. We live in NC and it was Thanksgiving week (busiest travel day of the year) We just couldn't afford it. I'm still beating myself up over it.

    We did not get to go anywhere in 2011 because of illness. We would love to win a voucher or card for travel in 2012. My choice would be the southeastern coast. Civil War places like Savanah, Charleston, etc.

    No regrets for 2011 just resolution to travel more in 2012! Already been to Mammoth Lakes, have a cruise booked, trip to Pismo, week at beachhouse! I know I can fit in more!!!

    Biggest regret not having a family vacation last year .. resomlution this year .. to tag a cpl days on a skating camp to have some family time and make a vacation out of it.

    By Martha Cole on January 8, 2012 3:09 PM

    We travelled to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island this year. Such beautiful scenery. I wish I had had more time to go on to Newfoundland and Labrador as I imagine they are equally as beautiful. This year 2012, we are going to visit Texas. Except for El Paso and the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, we have not really seen much of Texas. We will have 9 or 10 days so I hope to see a lot. I want to see scenic areas where there are mountains or at least hills and also see some of the Gulf Coast.

    By Christy on January 8, 2012 3:29 PM

    For the past 2 years, my travel 'vacations' were spent traveling 700 miles away for me to have surgeries. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago. I don't regret travelling for the surgeries, because they were necessary. Now that all of that is behind me now, my travel resolution this year is to travel somewhere to have a real vacation!

    By stacy b on January 8, 2012 3:32 PM

    I want to travel a lot this year to the nascar races . Also would like to plan a family vacation with my sone before he starts his first year of college.

    By Nicole on January 8, 2012 3:34 PM

    Last year I made the decision that I was FINALLY going to travel internationally, no matter what it took. Well unfortunately, another year has passed without it happening. I will not let this year go by without traveling outside of the US! It is my promise to myself!

    By kimberly piche on January 8, 2012 4:06 PM

    To go back to New Bruswick, where i was born and to put flowers on my Mothers grave site. Iam 50 years old and have never seen where she is at and would love to have a talk with her, but please do not feel sad, that is just my wish..

    By Jane on January 8, 2012 4:09 PM

    I have never been to Las Vegas or Myrtle Beach and I would like to go to either place this year.

    By Susan Brust on January 8, 2012 4:09 PM

    My regret for 2012 is that I have no vacation plans now so I can not fantasize about a trip and staying at a Best Western!

    By Barbara Lee on January 8, 2012 4:17 PM

    I regret not having taken my mother up to New Jersey and Pennsylvania to visit with her family one last time in 2011. She recently died so it's not something that I can fix but it serves as a reminder that life is often shorter than we think and sometimes there isn't the opportunity to "get around to it" some day.

    By Sharon on January 8, 2012 4:19 PM

    My biggest travel regret is when we drove to Montana for my Dad's memorial services, It was one of the hardest trips I have had to make. I am thankful that I had Best Western to stay at coming and going.

    My resolution for 2012 is to try and move to Montana. I resolve to stay at Best Western for over ten times in this year, so I am able to maintain my "Gold Elite" status.

    By Sheila on January 8, 2012 4:20 PM

    I will be doing a trip through Virginia and DC, a weekend respite to Alligator Point in the Florida Panhandle, and a mountain trip out West. Hope to make it to Alaska this year or next.

    By Sheila on January 8, 2012 4:24 PM

    I will be tripping through Virginia and DC, also a weekend respite at Alligator Point in the Florida Panhandle, and a trip West. Hope to make it to Alaska either this year or next.

    By Mary W on January 8, 2012 4:58 PM

    I had the opportunity to fly from Florida to Western Montana and tour Glacier National Park and hike the Bitterroot Mtns. I decided not to go and really regret that I missed the chance to be with friends in such a beautiful place.

    By Rick Lee on January 8, 2012 5:03 PM

    I Love!!!! to go to New York to see my son as have not seen him for about a year due to work schedule.

    By BarbG on January 8, 2012 5:04 PM

    Our 30th anniversary year. We love our 2 grown children and their families. We have spent our vacations with them in various locations or visiting them at their homes in Colorado and Georgia (we're in upstate NY). NO REGRETS, BUT... This year we want to go somewhere ALONE to celebrate!

    By Patrick on January 8, 2012 5:13 PM

    The biggest travel regret I have for 2011 is that I did not get to spend enough time with my wife before our new baby comes. So for my 2012 travel resolution, I will take her on a weekend trip before our daughter is born. I also want to make sure that I get to spend more quality time with my family.

    By Patricia Caradonna on January 8, 2012 5:16 PM

    My 2012 travel resolution is to vacation/travel with my mother this year. I would love to take her on a vacation - just the two of us. She loves the beach and so do I. We need to spend some mother/daughter time just the two of us.

    By Jeremy Robertson on January 8, 2012 5:16 PM

    I would love to take my family on a vacation out west. I would like to take them out to see the Grand Canyon, then on up to Yellowstone, We have seen about half of the United States and would like to start working on seeing the other half.

    By sharon parker on January 8, 2012 5:19 PM

    i have never been out of the country. I would love to start this new year off with changing this. I would love to explore islands. I dont care where, i love the sun and i love the sand, so take me anywhere. I won't complain.

    By John Lee on January 8, 2012 5:24 PM

    I would love to see the Grand Canyon!

    By Brad Engborg on January 8, 2012 5:24 PM

    Some place in Kentucky. I went there years ago and it was beautiful countryside. Would like to see it again,

    We spent two weeks in France in 2011, but I regret spending only 4 days in Paris. What an amazing city, and there is so much to see and do!

    By Jo Brownlow on January 8, 2012 5:33 PM

    I would like visit the Painted Desert and then travel Route 66 from California to Illinois.

    Hope to go to Florida for some shunshine and theme park fun.

    By Susan P. on January 8, 2012 6:02 PM

    For 2012, I plan to travel with my sister to the NW United States to see WA, OR, ID, MT and if we can swing it AK. Our plan is to win all our travel expenses and so far have accumulated about half of what we need.

    By Kelly M on January 8, 2012 6:07 PM

    I resolve to visit AT LEAST three states in 2012!

    By Patrick Hensler on January 8, 2012 6:15 PM

    I will be visiting 10 or more National Parks in the Southwest this summer. I've never seen Yosemite or the Grand Canyon.

    By Matthew Pagazani on January 8, 2012 6:17 PM

    I did not make it Montreal last year to visit my cousin mostly because of time but cost of travel as well. hopefully i can this year!

    By Dawn on January 8, 2012 6:20 PM

    My 2012 travel plans would include a trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the Florida Gulf Coast or Gulf Shores. Anywhere there's a beach would be awesome.

    By Dawn T. on January 8, 2012 6:29 PM

    I would love to go to the Gulf Coast of Florida or Alabama and hang out on the beach.

    By Yaman Erim on January 8, 2012 6:45 PM

    Made it all the way to Rajasthan (two 10-hour flights each way) but somehow couldn't find the time to go to Varanasi, only another 90 minutes away.

    By Lisa H on January 8, 2012 7:57 PM

    I would like to be a little more spontaneous (but I do like to plan a little). I am going to pick out about 4 or 5 warm weather U.S. destinations and make up cards, and my husband and I will pick one and that is where we will go for a long 5-day weekend in February!!

    By Alexandra L. on January 8, 2012 8:11 PM

    In all of my years of travel abroad, to the Carribbean, and extensively through the US, I have shamefully spent little of my travel dollars on travel within our fabulous country. 2012 will start a journey for my family and we'll get to know our home and native land.

    By Lory Q on January 8, 2012 8:58 PM

    My travel desire would be to see the Big Apple and everything it has to offer!

    By Kevin L on January 8, 2012 9:30 PM

    I regret not having to travel at all in the past three years. My parents invited me to go on a cruise with them in 2011, but I turned them down so I could job hunt. I wasn't hired during that time so I probably could've gone. All the food they showed me from their cruise were very mouth-watering. x_x

    By Tierra G on January 8, 2012 9:33 PM

    I wish I traveled further in 2011. I stayed between Toronto and Montreal, not very much travelling this year. For 2012, I hope to get to the Eastern provinces.

    By Tanis on January 8, 2012 9:36 PM

    My 2011 travel regret is not going camping around the Kootenays in BC, while my 2012 travel resolution is to travel to Hawaii or Mexico with my husband!

    By Diane on January 8, 2012 9:41 PM

    Last year I spent many nights on the computer looking at interesting places & hotels I might like to visit...but never really went anywhere except to visit my son.
    Traveling can be challenging for me, so I hope in 2012 I will be brave enough to take a really fun vacation.

    By Lory Q on January 8, 2012 9:49 PM

    My travel desire would be to see the Big Apple and everything it has to offer!

    By Serena Debolt on January 8, 2012 9:51 PM

    I resolve to spend more time at the Rainbow Highway near Smithers BC. FIshing trips are always put on the back burner when gas prices rise.

    By John C on January 8, 2012 10:13 PM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is that to plan and book our winter vacation ASAP!

    By Clarissa on January 8, 2012 11:33 PM

    WE'D LOVE TO TAKE OUR 13 YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, WHO GETS STRAIGHT "A"s, IS THE ULTIMATE DISNEY/PIXAR'S "CARS" FAN, AND IS THE GREATEST BIG SISTER, TO THE GRAND OPENING OF "CARSLAND" IN DISNEYLAND THIS SUMMER AS A GRADUATION GIFT!!

    By V Varner on January 9, 2012 12:02 AM

    I really wish that I could travel with my daughter to her soccer tournaments. I have never been able to go yet. I just sent my eldest son off to college so alot of extra funds that come available end up being used for college purposes and trips with my daughter get pushed aside like the trip i planned to go on with her next month (Feb.2012) got cancelled due to my son breaking his hand...please pick me, Thank you!

    By Catherine Freimark on January 9, 2012 12:04 AM

    I love going on vacation and really wanted to go to Seaworld and Busch Gardens in Orlando and Tampa. I did all the research, got my 4 year old daughter all excited and then circumstances made the trip totally unaffordable. Now 2012: I turn 40 in 3 days and am celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in June and we've just had my car die and been told I have to pay double income taxation in 2 countries! My trip away for my 40th was cancelled and I doubt we are going anywhere this year. I feel the need to go on vacation to get away from the stress of daily life and to have some fun! Right now more than ever I could use a vacation!

    I regret not being able to attend 1 off-island soccer tournment with my daughter. I just send my eldest son of to college and what little funds that come available end up being used for my son and trips with my daughter get put off just like the trip I planned to attend next month (Feb 2012), due to my son breaking his hand I can no longer afford both expenses.

    I will be going to Vegas in June, woo hoo! and Kelowna in July or August.

    In 2011 my family didn't get to take a vacation. We had a rough year with my dad passing away and illness in the famly. The place I'd really love to go is to Maui, but right now I'd take just about any vacation place.

    By kristine lister on January 9, 2012 5:23 AM

    regret: taking my 8yr old and 3 yr old on a 3000 mi road trip. The trip was so awful, with my 3yr old crying, my husband freaking out and my 8 yr old sick, it overshadowed the entire vacation.

    By Jackie Carter on January 9, 2012 5:25 AM

    My siblings and I meet somewhere every six months and our plans to meet in St Louis in the Fall of 2011 were cancelled due to health reasons. We really enjoy the time we can spend together in our golden years and we are all looking forward to meeting in St Louis now in the Spring of 2012.

    By Patricia on January 9, 2012 6:12 AM

    My regret was not being able to spend as much time in Florida in 2011. I plan on meeting my sister in Cocoa Beach FL this Memorial Day weekend and stay at the Best Western Ocean Front Beach Resort. This will be the 20th year my sis & I have spent a "sister weekend" at the Best Western sampling all of the various room types - this year direct ocean front in the Towers.

    Hopefully will also get back to our time share in Aruba for our 34th wedding anniversary

    My travel regret is that I didn't travel any in 2011, won't make that mistake in 2012, going to take a well deserved vaction!

    By Barbara McLellan on January 9, 2012 6:26 AM

    After many trips from Southern to Northern California to visit family in 2011, I came to regret that I did not stop along the way and stay for more than a night of rest before moving on. A few days ago (2012) we were headed North and stayed in Arroyo Grande CA at a beautiful Best Western. We stayed 2 nights and explored from Pismo Beach to the wineries just a short drive inland. The village of Arroyo Grande is quaint, but sadly even 2 nights was not long enough. I filled several lines of notes on my iPhone with other points of interest within a 40 mile radius. This will be a permanent "via" point on our GPS for 2012 and beyond. I have already told my sisters, who live scattered across the US to start planning our next gathering there. As a reminder...If you are traveling with your pets, be sure to call ahead.. pet friendly rooms are limited.

    By Danny Warren on January 9, 2012 6:33 AM

    I'd like to travel to Australia this year

    By Jackie on January 9, 2012 6:34 AM

    We have not taken a family vacation in years, just never enough money. I told my husband that this year we need to cut back on spending & try to save to take the family out west. Before we know it, the kids will be grown up & gone and this opportunity will have been lost. We have talked about seeing the Grand Canyon, my oldest wants to do the sky walk (not sure I am brave enough for that).

    By gloria mccain on January 9, 2012 6:34 AM

    ROAD TRIP!!!!!!! My daughter and I are planning to go to Yellowstone NP and the Grand Tetons NP this summer. The budget is started.....anything added to it would be awesome!!!

    By Cole Maier on January 9, 2012 6:41 AM

    I regret that I didn't travel to new locations this year. I spent my vacation days in Florida and Mexico . . . Both locations I have been to frequently and recently.

    By Perry Stepp on January 9, 2012 6:41 AM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to travel West (New Mexico and Colorado) to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. While there, my family and I will take the time to explore the majesty of the Rockie Mountains!

    I want to travel to Africa in 2012, not sure where yet but if one of your hotels is there it could be a good place to start!

    By Karen on January 9, 2012 6:54 AM

    My travel regret for 2011 and my travel resolution for 2012 are closely related: I regret that I didn't travel enough last year and resolve to travel more in 2012, even if just weekend getaways to see new places and absorb new energy!

    By Rene Guerra on January 9, 2012 6:57 AM

    I miss going to New York last year in many opportunities, I need go this 2012 for business, 2 , 3 nights before summer, my job depends on it.

    Our vacations are weeks and weekends on the baseball field following my son play, I would love for this year to be able to stay the night close to the field on some of the tournaments instead of driving for hours back and forth. This would truly help :) Thanks for the opportunity!!!

    My daughter is graduating this coming June at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. My family is saving every penny to travel to St. Andrews for this event. The hotel I dream about is The Scores Best Western! The beautiful and historic old hotel nearest the 1st tee of the Old Course. It will be my husbands first trip to Scotland. I want to make it happen and check this website constantly for deals...$250 would certainly be nice!!

    My goal is to take as many of the planned rides as possible.

    AM going this fall to watch them!!! Can't miss another year.

    I have this dream that I will be able to take my children and grandchildren to Portugal and visit the home of their ancestors. We have our family history and know where they lived as far back as the middle ages. I've heard we could stay in a castle built by one of our ancestors. That would be amazing.

    By Sandra Bruso on January 9, 2012 7:45 AM

    If I could have a choice of where I want to go it would have to be believe it or not Texas.I love Willie Nelson and if I were to go to Texas I just might actually get to meet him.I love singing and I would go to some fun country bars were there was Karaoke and I would sing and someone would tell Willie they heard this girl who sang his songs so well that he has to meet me..I just want to meet Willie so bad.I would then Travel to California to meet Ellen degeneres.She is awesome and so funny.Thank you.From Sandra here in Royalston,Ma

    By Jeannette Laframboise on January 9, 2012 7:46 AM

    I traveled to Niagara Falls this past summer (2011) to visit family as that is where most of my family resides. After recovering from side effects of a previous cancer treatment and then a workplace injury, I was not doing much for several years never mind traveling. I finally improved enough to travel and off I went with great plans to see all of the family I had not seen in years. As it turned out, I ended up forgetting one of my very important medications and subsequently became ill and had to return home. I was not able to see my own mother who unfortunately ended up in a nursing home shortly after I returned home and I was not able to see her. I also had great plans to see my granddaughter but had to leave before I had a chance to see her as well. It just broke my heart that I did not have the chance to see either of them, so I am hoping that the summer of 2012 it will all work out better.

    By Kat on January 9, 2012 7:46 AM

    I would really love to go to Vegas this March to hear Tim Tebow speak about his faith. That would be really awesome to hear. He is really a blessing!

    By Alannah Boisse on January 9, 2012 8:01 AM

    :) I love Best Western and the room deals! I am heading to Victoria and staying in a King size suite to go shopping for vintage clothes in February. In March it is the anniversary of our engagement. In April there is Easter. In May it is Victoria Day long weekend. In June maybe we will have to just make up a reason, but we already know where to stay!

    By Laurie MacNeil on January 9, 2012 8:02 AM

    My big travel regret in 2011 was booking our dream vacation (a cruise) in August, just because it was so much cheaper. The day we left for The Bahamas on the cruise ship, we were in the eye of Hurricane Irene. It was a horribly rough sail and I spent the whole first night vommitting. The rest of the trip was then spent on the ship because The Bahamas had been so badly battered and all of the excursions were cancelled. For 2012, I think that I'll stay within driving distance for vacation, because you get what you pay for.

    By Patti J. on January 9, 2012 8:04 AM

    Economy hit soooo hard we couldn't even afford to travel in our own state. There is so much to see and we wouldn't have to travel far. Sometimes the weekend get aways are just as nice as the week vacations, they break up the "what do we do and where do we go". This would be such a nice treat after all the struggling we've been through.

    By Carolyn Hoxworth on January 9, 2012 8:07 AM

    Due to an illness in 2011, my usual trips to Lake City,Florida were cut short. We make numerous trips to the area every year, staying at the Best Western, of course. I'm having some surgery in a few weeks so, in 2012, I plan on resuming my frequent stays in that area and staying at The Best Western of Lake City. The owner, front desk staff and Housekeeping Staff there are all great helpful and lovely people. Can't wait for my next "healthy" visit in the spring!

    By Paula K on January 9, 2012 8:11 AM

    I would love to spend some time with my Mom and take her to the Grand Canyon. It is something she has always wanted to see and I would LOVE to be there with her! That would be an amazing memory to treasure :)

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to take a two week-long road trip from the northern part of the USA to the southern part. I'd like to visit as many friends and family as I can along the way!

    By B Phelps on January 9, 2012 8:19 AM

    My travel regret...we went on a family trip out east, Niagara Falls, New York, Boston and Sandusky Ohio. This was our big family trip. Coming back home to Wisconsin, MY part of the trip was to stop in Frankenmuth Michigan and go to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. Now, I had been on a 2 1/2 week trip with four kids in a vehicle, I wanted my christmas store, but, it was not to be. We pulled into Frankenmuth, saw all of the cute little shops in the downtown area and then we were on our way to Bronner's. I was so excited. I walked into Bronner's and there was a torrential downpour starting outside. It was bad. We couldn't see the parking lot. The power went out. Here we are with a few hundred other people in a blacked out store and our four kids, (who thought it was the coolest thing in the world). I got to see nothing of the christmas store, not one ornament or display. For the first time in Bronner history, they closed the store due to no power. I was completely disappointed. I would love to go back and visit since my first experience didn't pan out for me at all.

    By Patt Celayeta on January 9, 2012 8:19 AM

    Although I have a timesahre vacation spot, it is far enough away from home that I always stay over at a BW during our trip. BW is therefore our first vacation night! We enjoy our treks to Palm Springs each year and look forward to our 2012 trip.

    By Monica on January 9, 2012 8:26 AM

    Boston, MA! Have always wanted to stroll through Boston Common, have a beer at Cheers and walk the Freedom Trail. someday ...

    By Alex Unander on January 9, 2012 8:31 AM

    My biggest travel regret of 2011 is that I didn't get to go anywhere. I got married in February of 2011 and for my "honeymoon" stayed 30 minutes away from where I live! And honestly that was the furthest I ever got away from home. This year I would love to actually take a vacation or two and be able to get away for some very much need R&R with my Husband!

    By Kristine Cuchna on January 9, 2012 8:34 AM

    In 2009 we travelled to La Quinta, CA and in 2010 we travelled to Scottsdale, AZ. We drove both times. Before we had set out to travel, we made reservations with BW for the nights that we had to rest. BW by far has the best accomodations, as we have two westie's dogs. We were unable to travel in 2011. So this year 2012 we will be travelling to Florida. We are looking forward to making reservations with BW for our rest nights. Thank you, Best Western for a restfull stay.

    I have always, always wanted to go to Spring Training for the Cactus League in Pheonix AZ, and once again will not be able to go because I have committed to some community volunteer work. I do enjoy the work and just can't seem to say "No!" eg
    But next year for sure!

    By Joan on January 9, 2012 8:47 AM

    In 2011 my husband and I went out to Prague to visit our son. Time, unfortunately, did not permit us to travel to Hungary, where my husband's family is from. 2012 is the year we will!!

    By bob hudson on January 9, 2012 8:47 AM

    My main regret is that I had to wait until I retired to be able to find the time to travel as much as I do now. Then I was too conservative with my funds (worried it wouldnt last!) So now I am 70 I am spending quicker and travelling more but I regret waiting so long. So if you can do it do it now is my advice.

    Disneyland, definitely Disneyland. My son and I went to Disneyland in 2011 - and it was the "happiest place on earth". He cried when we left! I would love to surpise him with a return trip this year. FHI - we stayed at the Best Western Stovall's Inn - it was perfect! Thank you Best Western!

    My 2011 travel time was AMAZING, I got to go to California for the first time in my life! This year might just top it though... my travel goal that I am saving for is my big sisters wedding in Panama City Beach, FL!! Winning this would help me and my family get there to celebrate!!

    By Virgil Doyle on January 9, 2012 9:10 AM

    My only regret in 2011 was the fact that I did not check the rates a certain moters befor going into certain areas of the country and were very un happy with the rates that were being charged because of special events.

    I regret that I had to turn down a chance to attend The Masters Golf Tournament 2012. It was an opportunity of a lifetime and a birthday gift for my husband, but the expense of the travel made it out of reach. We were also looking forward to visiting the Blues Clubs. My son is now playing club baseball at Cal State Fullerton.. The team has a national championship in Georgia this spring so maybe it was meant to be, for us to go there for that, instead of The Masters. My husband's oldest sister also lives in Georgia and we are from California. He rarely gets to see her. California Dreamin' for the opportunity to surprise him with the trip. If not to Georgia to New Orleans for a tour the historic Blues clubs.

    I would love to vist London in 2012. This is the year of the summer Olympics in England and a local group from Victoria that creates peace murals will be featured in London during the Games.

    My travel regret.... I used the Best Western Inn at the Vines in Napa, CA. I wished I had never used them. My house had caught fire so I decided to have a small Christmas party at the hotel with food, drinks, and decorations. I told any guests to be quiet when they arrived at the hotel so we wouldnt disturb any guests. I rented their two story suite which is located at the end of one building and away from other rooms and near a Dennys entrance.
    We had a nice quiet party going until about 9'oclock when we had a call from the "manager". She said this hotel does not allow parties. I was surprised. No family reunions, no graduation parties, no get togethers of any kind. I said I have stayed at BW and had never seen it written anywhere. She said I am telling you verbally. What an embarassing and distasterous party!
    By 10'oclock my guests had left. Several out of town guests reserved rooms for the occasion. I rented two rooms, the suite and another room for an out of town couple.That couple was so disappointed with the hotel they decided not to stay and traveled back home that night. The other couple stayed but dont think they asked for a refund.
    I was very disappointed. Most hotels have a rule that says guests must leave by 10. I checked my paperwork, the internet, the back of the door. Nothing about having guests. I wanted to leave the hotel that night since it was so disturbing to stay in that harsh environment. My friend said rest and stay overnight. Collect the Christmas goodies and decorations then go to the office and ask for a refund for the two rooms.
    I did just that. In the morning I checked out about 11 and requested a refund. The lady said she would deny a refund but the manager Bridgett could authorize one when she came back six days later from vacation. It was about $270.00 for the two rooms. I told the receptionist that the hotel needs to advertize their rules. There is nothing in writing about NO PARTIES ALLOWED. I would never have used the hotel if I had known they were so hostile. The only reason the hotel noticed anything was the hotel security guy on a Thursday night saw several people going into one room.Not many hotel rooms were occupied so we stood out I guess. I am very disappountedin the treatment we recieved from Best Western.

    By Carol Pickup on January 9, 2012 9:29 AM

    I would love to go to London in June 2012. A local Victoria peace murals group will be exhibiting its murals in London during the Summer Olympics this summer.

    By Kim Oxender on January 9, 2012 9:31 AM

    We love to travel on our Honda Goldwing! Due to my health this past summer, my husband and I did not get much traveling. We are praying that after my surgery in a couple of weeks we will be able to ride this summer!!

    By Ruth on January 9, 2012 9:32 AM

    I would really love the opportunity to get to Paris this year. My husband and I are planning to renew our vows there in 2013 for our 25th anniversary. We have a number of friends and family planning on coming over to join us. I would love to have the opportunity to go there to do the planning in person.

    Last time we were in Paris we stayed at a Best Western. It was perfect. Clean, Well located, nice staff and a window with a french balcony that opened up on to la ville lumiere! Fantastique!

    Looking forward to going back, winning the contest would make it even better! :)

    By Nancy on January 9, 2012 9:36 AM

    My regret was not taking advantage of some of the great airfares last year to take a trip out to Washington State. Instead I had to make do with my friends photos. Hoping again for a 2012 arrival!

    By steve on January 9, 2012 9:48 AM

    I would have liked to have taken the family down the oregon and california coasts this past summer staying at Best Westerns along the way.

    By Phyllisofical on January 9, 2012 9:52 AM

    Since I love traveling, my major regret is not being able to travel more period. But, specifically, I regret never getting to the United Kingdom. I have Rick Steves' travelogues and have read numerous books and watched many films about England, Scotland, Wales and Scotland. I have always wanted to visit there ever since I was a child and I am in my 60s now. Money for travel has always been the issue and now, since we are retired, it is even more of an issue. I regret that I may never visit these beautiful islands during my lifetime.

    2012 Looking forward to seeing Alaska

    By Sarah on January 9, 2012 10:03 AM

    We don't go far. However, my mom is flying to the East coast, from the West coast this summer for her first ever visit. I would like to be able to take her to the Bay of Fundy and/or Halifax. It would be nice to be able to stay over night since she will probably never get to come here again. We are small farmers on a limited income so this would be a wonderful gift. thank you.

    By Tara Beckett on January 9, 2012 10:04 AM

    I regret not seeing the Grand Canyon when we were in Arizona.

    Our resolution this year is to use up all of our points and credits, travel as lightly as possible, be spontaneous and adventuresome, go somewhere we've not yet seen. And we will appreciate our hospitable friends everywhere.

    For the first time in my life I traveled to Europe to visit my daughter in Belgium, where she is teaching. We also traveled to Italy while I was there. All 3 of my daughters are world travelers and I vow to travel more.

    Regret Not Seeing the Union Pacific Railroad's Bailey Yard in North Platte, Nebraska in 2011! The WORLD's Largest Freight Classification & Assembly Point.

    By Crystal Morgan on January 9, 2012 11:04 AM

    Just wish there was more time and money to travel more. The kids love staying in hotels with pools. Its something so little that makes them so happy. Would like to do more family trips this year :)

    By David D Dunham on January 9, 2012 11:05 AM

    To whom it may concern: If I were the marketing manager for Best Western I would set up a card for seniors that want to stay at Best Western on there travels through out the United States that would give them the same price for a room at every Best Western to elliminate the need to shop at several hotels to get the best rate. If I were able to spend a night with my wife and myself on our travels at $70.00 per night I would just find the closest Best Western in the area I ended up each night. No shopping around. Best Western Senior Frequent Flyer Plan.
    Just a thought. David D. Dunham

    My 2012 New Year's Resolution...to only stay at Best Western Hotels!!

    By Adele Andrews on January 9, 2012 11:15 AM

    We travel alot to the states and always stay at the best western as my grandaughter loves the morning breakfast and swimming in the pool. We always have a good time at the Best Western Hotels and never have a problem. We will be going to Lake Chelan in July and we have stayed there before and love the hotel right on the beach and the bbqs that the guests have access too, which make it fun to cook your own meals outside and still enjoy what the hotel has to offer. We would love to go to the caribbean some day but dont know when we will ever make it there.

    By Holly on January 9, 2012 11:21 AM

    I had stayed at the best western for a mini shopping trip for usa thanksgiving., the hotel price was so resonable that my biggest regret was not staying a few more nights as it is so relaxing to sit by the pool and not think about anything but shopping and fun stuf...soo..we have another booked trip to the same hotel and were going to just stay 2 nights,but i have already decided we are making it 3 minimum,,,maybe 4!!! this gift card would definetly help me decide on length of stay!!:)

    By Holly on January 9, 2012 11:24 AM

    I stayed at a best western in superior for the usa thanksgiving.biggest regret was not extending the stay..needless to say, we have planned for another mini vacation and were originally going to only stay 2 nights, but i have decided it is 3, maybe 4!! winnin this gift card would sure help me with that decision..oh i think i would upgrade my room too!!

    By Clyde N. on January 9, 2012 11:28 AM

    I'd like to see the great pyramids of Egypt!!!

    By BarbaraS on January 9, 2012 11:38 AM

    Id like to go to Chicago and watch the Blackhawks play.

    By Lynn T. on January 9, 2012 11:42 AM

    Each year I try to have my kids visit at least one new location. Having an appreciation for the world and all it has to offer is very important for me to establish within my kids. One year they experienced their first flights to locations such as San Francisco and Scottsdale, AZ. Another year we drove to a friend's in upper state NY and also enjoyed Boston during summer break as well as NYC during the holidays. This coming year we are looking to travel to Washington, DC for the cherry blossoms as well as Quebec for Winterfest and whereever else our hearts (and pocketbooks) will take us!!!

    By Kathleen G. on January 9, 2012 11:48 AM

    I would love to go out east to visit friends who have moved to Halifax. It would be a first for my kids AND for me!

    By Jamie Woods on January 9, 2012 11:53 AM

    After a major surgery I was off work for six months. Impulsively my wife and I left Fort McMurray, Alberta and drove to Edmonton, AB, Calgary, AB, Banff, AB, Creston, BC, then down into Idaho, the over to Washington, back to Idaho and finally Montana back to Alberta. Absolutely wonderful trip, our only regret is that we did not take the ferry from Seattle over to Vancouver. British Columbia is very beautiful, we really should have experienced the coast. We are both from Nova Scotia so the sea is always an enjoyable destination.

    Best regards,

    By Phil on January 9, 2012 11:54 AM

    Had the opportunity to visit North Korea but didn't in 2011. Now with the death of Kim Jong Il I might never get to visit.

    By Jackie Moisan on January 9, 2012 11:56 AM

    Hmmm - so many places to go and stay at Best Western. I think Hawaii would be great for 2012!

    By Rob on January 9, 2012 11:57 AM

    my regret was not being able ot use the free room voucher at any property in CO, nad having to send it in exchange for half its value in points.-then it taking me over a month to find a BW property that would accept those points.my other regret is the illegible captcha on this contest.

    By Erika Burkhard on January 9, 2012 12:10 PM

    My travel regret is not getting out to Los Angeles to visit my brother. My brother lives in Los Angeles and I live in Virginia. I have not been to visit him in over 5 years. I have not even seen his house! My fiance has never been to Los Angeles and would really like to visit California. We hope to be able to make a trip next year.

    By Elena on January 9, 2012 12:10 PM

    in 2010 I was married. We always put off our honeymoon. We settled on 2011 being the year that we went. But due to work and other things that come up when you have a new and arising family we once again put it on the back burner...I Told my husband that it didn't matter where we went ...as long as we are together. That will always hold true. But I would love to make it possible to get away and show him a good time. So my regret is that we never got to do it. But this year my resolution is that We would like to. I just think something nice out near the coast ...With a gift card like this we could drive to the coast.. get nice hotel room and spend the day on the beach... or get a nice hotel room near Niagra Falls.....We would love to be the winners of this contest so that we can finally have a honeymoon!!! PLEASE PICK US!!!

    By Craig on January 9, 2012 12:14 PM

    I regret that we didn't have a makeup vacation as our first vacation was cut short due to fog keeping the cruise ships from Galveston TX. Three days in foggy Galveston was nice but still a little disappointing for my family.

    By craig on January 9, 2012 12:17 PM

    I regret not having a makeup vacation as our cruise was cut short due to fog in Galveston TX. Galveston is nice but still a little disappointing.

    By Cecil on January 9, 2012 12:19 PM

    In November on a trip to Sedona Arizona, while taking the senic route south from Flagstaff, I did not film or photgraph the drive down as I thought I would take photos as I retraced my route on the return. However, snow forced me to take a more southern route back to Louisiana so I missed some fabulous photo opts.

    By Marjorie Buerkle on January 9, 2012 12:23 PM

    My travel regret from 2011 was relying on the Best Western book to plan by cross country trip! Fully 2 of the 4 nights I had planned, using that book, turned out to be a nightmare! Surprise ! No longer were they Best Western hotels! AND - how could it have been worse? - I went from one town, up to the next, 80 miles away, at night, only to find, yes....THAT one was no longer a Best Western either! Now a Red Lion, or something! Spent a HORRIBLE SLEEPLESS night in Grants, NM between Route 66 and a railroad track at a with HOURLY ALL NIGHT TRAINS! Joined best Western b/c AAA recommended and it was the best price. Well, I guess you get what you pay for. BOOOO

    I normally travel home to Pittsburgh at least three times a year, regretfully because of work, I did not get home once last year. In 2012, I have promised to take my kids home to see their Grandparents and Uncles for a month visit to make up for lost times!

    By Sarah on January 9, 2012 12:47 PM

    I will be traveling to NYC, Chico CA, NM, CO, GA, and Washington State in 2012. My hope is to go back to AK this year as well.

    By Lori on January 9, 2012 1:03 PM

    There are so many places I would love to travel to, but one regret is that I have never been to California. I would so much love to see San Francisco or San Diego or Hollywood. I would so much appreciate having this opportunity.

    By Deb Philippon on January 9, 2012 1:20 PM

    I would love to go to Iceland. Regret - not getting back to Holland in 2011.

    By Becky on January 9, 2012 1:21 PM

    My biggest travel regret for 2011 is not taking our oldest son on an old fashioned "road trip" before he left for university, stopping at Best Westerns along the way and experiencing up close and personal the many hidden gems along the road. Many of my most treasured memories were made on such trips, so 2012 will be the year of the Road Trip for me! (I have 3 more boys to go!)

    By madison bingley on January 9, 2012 1:28 PM

    My regret of travelling in 2011 would definitely be taking a 1982 hippie van that we bought the day of our trip on a 2 week trip to the East Coast!! It broke down 3 times, but we did meet some interesting people on the way! And we had to take a plane home! haha

    By Norm Johnson on January 9, 2012 1:28 PM

    I am planning to do a 45 day road trip through the US this spring and will be using Best Western as much as possible, I have tried other chains and have had problems but BW always provides a clean, comfortable room.

    By carson bingley on January 9, 2012 1:30 PM

    My resolution for 2012 would be to save my money and go travelling. To stay at Best Western hotels because they're beautiful and well priced!

    By melinda burd on January 9, 2012 1:33 PM

    I would go see my family in NJ couldnt afford to last year so this would be a great surprise!

    First a comment to Kimberly..We are glad Georgia is on your mind! Please be sure to visit Callaway Gardens, especially in April.
    My Dad passed away in 2011 so our travel plans were cancelled,however, if all goes well this year we plan to do a A Grand European River Cruise and do a pre stay in a BW in Amsterdam and a post stay in Hungary before flying back to GA.

    By Kate on January 9, 2012 1:58 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 was that we didn't do it nearly enough. It wasn't until mid-December that I finally got up to Seattle to see the kids, only to discover that the trip was shorter, cheaper, and far less hassle than I had expected! I think of all the family events I missed in 2011...it's a mistake I certainly won't be making in 2012!

    By Pamela on January 9, 2012 2:05 PM

    No regrets in 2011! I am committed to making Alaska happen in 2012!!!

    By Jocelyn on January 9, 2012 2:13 PM

    I have lived most of my life in the Vancouver area but have usually traveled elsewhere for vacation. This year I will be a tourist in my own province and canoe and hike Haida Gwaii, learn about the gold rush in Barkerville, pick fruits in the Okanagan, check out fossils and the amazing scenery of the Rockies and learn to surf in Tofino or Ucluelet.

    By Coral Petzoldt on January 9, 2012 2:22 PM

    I hope to go to China in 2012. It really seems to be the in place to go.

    The travel regret I have is that I didn't get to Vegas - sure hope to arrange a girls trip soon!

    By Debbie Moyens on January 9, 2012 2:29 PM

    Would love to return to Rome and stay at the wonderful Hotel Canada. The hotel was extremely nice and the staff was amazing. Close to the train station and easy pick up and return for tours.

    Tuscany is still on our wish list as well...........we'll see what transpires!

    By Richard Buchkoski on January 9, 2012 2:30 PM

    I would love for our family to visit New York City this year.

    Would love to return to the wonderful Hotel Canada in Rome. It was a fantastic place to stay, close to the train station and easy pick up and drop off for tours.
    Staff was super!

    Tuscany is on our wish list, maybe this year?

    By Sandra O. on January 9, 2012 2:43 PM

    My family and I love to go on car trips, which we did last for the last two summers. Texas to Florida is a fun trip if you go with a "let's have fun" attitude. My only regret is not visiting my friends in the Houston area, which is only a 4 hour drive for me. I'll try to do it this year.

    By janice on January 9, 2012 2:45 PM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to take a vaction this year

    I planned to go to San Francisco during September last year. I really really wanted to go to the Chocolate Festival there. I love chocolate. In the end, I couldn't go because there were no room available. I regret about it a lot. I wish I knew about the festival early, so I could book a place to stay. I hope I can go this year.

    By Rachael on January 9, 2012 3:11 PM

    I would love to take my family of 6 to cali to disneyland. Ive never went and havent been able to go. This year would be a great year to go. That would help out.

    By Lyse Renaud on January 9, 2012 3:15 PM

    We love to travel at any time of the year. We went in cruise last fall in Europe and it was so wundrerfull. We plan to go at Ste-Lucia this winter and we will relax. We are thinking to spend time in USA next summer and we look for a trip for a week next winter. We love to visit a different place every time.

    By Rachael on January 9, 2012 3:17 PM

    I would love to take my family to california. didn't get a chance last year this year will be the year for sure.

    By Bobbi on January 9, 2012 3:27 PM

    I would definatly see more of Italy.

    By Janis W on January 9, 2012 3:55 PM

    Would love to take my parents to their ancestral home in Ireland. Would love for them to see their families one last time while they are still able. They have many grand and great-grandchildren they have never met and have not been able to travel for various reasons for many years, and have not been home since 1977. Their (and my) lives would be complete knowing they could bid farewell in person to their families, and I owe them more than I could ever repay.

    By Brian on January 9, 2012 3:59 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 was inadvertently setting my meal preference to "seafood meal" prior to traveling from Houston to Jakarta. From Houston to Moscow and Moscow to Singapore and Singapore to Jakarta, at EVERY meal, the flight attendant would come by and say in an Oriental accent "Ah, Mr. B, here is your seafood meal!" I tried numerous times to explain that there had been a mistake but they would just smile and place the meal on my tray. Every meal was fish! On my final leg I finally convinced the attendant to bring me a steak! She then informed me that if I had gone to the airline website and selected "seafood meal" I could have selected lobster, shrimp, clams, or whatever I wanted. Thanks for telling me! This year I will make sure I don't select "seafood meal" on my flight to Malaysia in March!

    By Lynn on January 9, 2012 4:00 PM

    There are so many places I would love to see but I would like to see Hawaii. My husband was sent TDY there right after we were married almost 33 years ago. I teased him about going there for his honeymoon and he told me that one day we would go. I think I am ready for it now. :)

    By Denyse on January 9, 2012 4:07 PM

    This year, I am hoping to go back to Waterton National Park and this time actually hike the Bear's Hump Pass! On our last trip there, it was still remarkably icy an we didn't have the appropriate clothing or gear to hike anything steep.

    By don on January 9, 2012 4:08 PM

    I would love to have taken my wife to the bahamas. The arrangements were not worked out, but it would be nice to take her to treat her to a nice outing later this year.

    By James on January 9, 2012 4:12 PM

    Exploring Alaska is on the top of my bucket list. Hope to get there!!

    By d.g. on January 9, 2012 4:16 PM

    I'd love to explore small cities this summer.

    By Janice on January 9, 2012 4:29 PM

    My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary on Sept 8th, 2011. We were on our honeymoon when 9/11 happened. So naturally we cut it short, to be with our families. We had always planned a spectacular 10 year anniversary. But my husband had lost his job earlier in the year. With not enough time to recover, before our anniversary. We decided we'd celebrate this year, 2012. He started a new job in March 2011, so he gets vacation in two months. We are planning a road trip! Doesn't matter where or how far we get, we are headed west. What a fantastic contest and I hope that we win! This would be such a reward for waiting 10 years for the perfect honeymoon!

    I will be traveling to Southwest this winter and looking for Best Western properties along the way.

    By Samuel Bess on January 9, 2012 4:31 PM

    My travel back to inspect flood damage to our farm in North Dakota last September
    required to and from bookings in various cities between Seattle and Minot ND.
    I regret that I did not book Best Western in Missoula on the way to Minot. The lodging
    I booked turned out to be sub standard. I cancelled the return booking for that property and re booked with Best Western in Missoula. I should have stuck with
    B/W round trip for that city.

    By Lorenda on January 9, 2012 4:33 PM

    Would like to take a road trip out west. Haven't had a vacation since the economy when bust :(

    By Cindy on January 9, 2012 4:40 PM

    I hope my husband and I can travel more this year than we did in 2011. I also want to go to places that we haven't been before.

    By Brenda Chrimes on January 9, 2012 4:45 PM

    After 50 years of marriage and work, we hope to travel a lot this year. First in Feburary to Florida to see our son and family, then in June for my 50th class reunion which shall be great, how many of the 600 will show? Then we will go to Vegas for a fun time.

    By judee on January 9, 2012 4:49 PM

    By Rafael Reyes on January 9, 2012 5:20 PM

    Hi, well I would have to guess the best place I have visited was Mexico City the people were very friendly and accommodating. And getting to visit the mayan and aztec ruins was fun as well. I would love to visit Rome, to learn about their personal interactions. ;) and check out the sites because I've heard they look cool.

    By Reena on January 9, 2012 5:26 PM

    My biggest travel regret is rushing! I got the opportunity to visit both Nepal and Thailand, but only stayed for a few days each. I was so exhausted by the end of each night because I was rushing to see all the major attractions. This year, I want to take my time and see all the beautiful places I can slowly. You miss out on so much of the beauty around you when you rush.

    By Cassie on January 9, 2012 5:43 PM

    I want to step outside my comfort zone in 2012 - maybe deep sea diving with sharks?!

    By Kathy K on January 9, 2012 5:46 PM

    We would love to go to the Best Western in Quebec City and then head east to the Best Western in Charlottetown, PEI next summer! I have never been to PEI and have always wanted to go. I think the kids would love it too!

    By Jackie on January 9, 2012 6:02 PM

    Lookin' for a sunny corner of the Carribean for some R&R in February!

    By Keila on January 9, 2012 6:35 PM

    Our family would like to travel to a new spot to vacation. It doesnt matter where we go just as long as we are together. We do have Barbados, Jamaica, and Bahamas on the list to visit. Hope we can win this card to help pay for a room over there.

    By Nancy on January 9, 2012 6:36 PM

    I would love to take the family back to Lake Dillon, Colorado. The Best Western there is across from the dog friendly park with water front for them to play in. The dogs are a part of our family and travel with us on vacations. This year will be adding another dog for a total of 3 and my first GRANDCHILD. The SUV is getting full but what fun it is there for all of us.

    By Brenda on January 9, 2012 6:45 PM

    My 2011 regret was not being able to drive south down the coast from Carmel, California, as the road was washed out while we stayed in Carmel overnight. I would love to go back and do that route.

    By Carol on January 9, 2012 6:53 PM

    I want to travel to Switzerland! I've already picked out the tour I would go on, but I have to save more to cover the expensive airfare.

    By Joyce on January 9, 2012 6:57 PM

    So looking back at 2011 I think that a road trip was missing. Nothing to far maybe a fishing trip up north with a delightful drive. so for my summer in 2012 I would like to do a road trip stopping in the remote towns and ending up fishing on a beautiful lake sleeping only at best westerns along the way.

    By Caroline M on January 9, 2012 7:04 PM

    I need to visit my family and friends more often. I regret not going on a road trip last year, since doing so always gives me a little boost.

    By Paul on January 9, 2012 7:14 PM

    New Orleans would be awesome to visit and it would be great for the area!

    By Jason on January 9, 2012 7:19 PM

    My biggest travel regret of 2011 was allowing my sister to come with my wife, daughter and myself out west to Alberta for a week.

    in 2012 i plan to not invite my sister along :)

    By Robert S on January 9, 2012 7:20 PM

    My biggest regret is that we didn't spend more time in our December trip to Italy to explore Venice...but of course, that was because we spent time in Tuscany touring wineries and hill towns!!

    By Trina T on January 9, 2012 7:21 PM

    We traveled to Payson and Pinetop Arizona in 2011. We regret not extending our road trips into New Mexico from Pinetop or Colorado to visit our friends. We are looking forward to new adventures in 2012.

    I was planning to go see my friend in Harlingen, TX and go swimming in the Gulf and then go to San Antonio to visit The Alamo since I hav en't seen it since I was 2 1/2 or 3 and my friend has never been there. She is going to be moving to be near her sister in Florida in a few months, so I'm going to have to act fast.

    I regret not having the time or money for a family vacation last hear. i hope to have one this year.

    By Aliya D. on January 9, 2012 8:43 PM

    My one and only travel regret from 2011 was that I did not have the time or the opportunity to get away other than a short weekend trip to the Canadian Rockies... I normally go somewhere every year and it was depressing that I couldn't in 2011. In 2012, I have resolved and will endeavour to make a trip to California for some diving and then a quick trip to Washington DC. Thanks!

    By Sarne on January 9, 2012 8:45 PM

    I only traveled once in 2011. In 2012 I plan to travel twice. Once to Kelowna and once to someplace tropical!

    By Jesse Aben on January 9, 2012 8:45 PM

    By Taffy on January 9, 2012 8:53 PM

    I would really like to visit my sister in Chandler, AZ. I wanted to go at Christmas time, but flights were really expensive, I haven't seen her for several months. I talk to her weekly, but it is not the same as getting to see her & give her a hug.

    By Freddie on January 9, 2012 8:56 PM

    I've always wanted to go to China and see the Great Wall. Maybe 2012 will be the year. Hmmmm...I wonder if there is a Best Western there?

    By Claudia on January 9, 2012 9:04 PM

    I resolve to zipline in Costa Rica in 2012!

    I have always wanted to travel to Europe and this year is my 25th Wedding Anniversary so we have made it a commitment to travel to Italy with our young adult children to renew our wedding vows in a country known for it's history, beauty, and love.

    By Tammy G on January 9, 2012 10:01 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 was that I went nowhere. My travel resolution for 2012 is to go somewhere ;)

    By Wayne on January 9, 2012 10:24 PM

    We will be travelling from BC Canada to Moab, Utah by motorcycle /camper and a few nights in a Best Western would be wonderfu.

    By Caroline De Armond on January 9, 2012 10:35 PM

    I get to go to Vegas for the first time in my life in June!!!!! So freakin excited!!!!

    By Eric H on January 9, 2012 10:46 PM

    I will be traveling to the Philippine Islands to retrace the footsteps of our brave countrymen as they struggled with their Philippine comrades to win back the islands from the empire of Japan.

    By David Farris on January 9, 2012 10:47 PM

    i would like to travel to Phoenix, AZ because after me and my fiance get married we have to find jobs for what we went to school for and I love the warm weather there.

    By Roy S. on January 9, 2012 10:47 PM

    My wife and I decided not to cruise this year [2012] but to go back to Florida and visit great American friends we met there 2 years ago. These friends live in Rhode Island and we live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.Well the very next day we decided not to cruise we got an internet offer " we couldn't refuse" -- a 15 night Royal Caribbean trans-atlantic cruise ending up in Rome. So to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary we will be heading south in March, visiting our friends in Cape Coral, Florida then cruising to Italy in April out of Fort Lauderdale. {of course we will be staying in Best Western Hotels 3 nights down and 3 nights back as we have since we started snow- birding }

    By BarbaraC on January 9, 2012 10:48 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 was that we didn't take our two adult children with us on our trip up through Maine, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton this summer. Such breathtaking scenery, such wonderful food, such friendly and kind people! If we won the lottery, our dream would be to hire a limo and travel all over the lower 48 (staying in Best Westerns along the way, of course!) - hitting every single state along the way!

    By BEC on January 9, 2012 10:54 PM

    My biggest regret is that we were not able to take our two grown children with us this summer when we toured coastal Maine, USA and New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton in eastern Canada. Such breathtaking scenery, such delectable food, such kind and friendly people! Our dream - if we were to win the lottery - would be to hire a limo and tour the entire lower 48 states (staying in Best Westerns along the way, of course!) stopping to savor all each state had to offer for as long as it takes!

    By William on January 9, 2012 11:42 PM

    O gosh! So many places to visit and so little time. Where are my keys? Luggage? C'mon honey we got to go. Forget your hair you look beautiful. Let's go, Canada is waiting. So much to see.

    By Mary Ricks on January 10, 2012 12:24 AM

    My husband and I want to visit the New England states in October. I am thinking about either Bartlett, New Hampshire or Lenox, Mass. I want to go to the best place to view the fall foliage.
    We have also scheduled a spring trip to visit Charleston, South Carolina staying at a Best Western for a few days.

    By Mary on January 10, 2012 12:33 AM

    We traveled in Canada in 2011. We plan on visiting the New england states in 2012 to see the fall foliage.

    By nancy langstaff kapalka on January 10, 2012 7:23 AM

    A few years back my Langstaff cousins in British Columbia published a book of the Langstaff family history. I never knew much about my great grandfathers and an uncle who moved there about 1918. Mom and I wrote pages of Montana family stories and sent it to the book. Now I would like to meet the writers at their Langstaff family reunion in McBride BC next August 3-6. The famale cousins look just like me I think!

    By Barrie on January 10, 2012 7:24 AM

    I would like to take a cruise up the coast from Vancouver to Alaska, to see the killer whales and the bears. My sister said it is the best trip she ever took.

    By Marge on January 10, 2012 7:32 AM

    I would have liked to use Best Western in Venice, Fla but the Barclay Bank won't
    give us a Best Western credit card. Don't know why, the other major motel chains have given us one and we use those to get points to use at their motels. OH well. I still
    like Best Western and we do stay there.

    By Kim Johnson on January 10, 2012 7:34 AM

    We have never been to Hawaii and this year we are finally going!!! We scraped and saved for many many years! We are so excited!!!!

    I would love to visit my best friend in California.

    By Jill on January 10, 2012 7:58 AM

    I'm booking my trip to Chicago right now. We love spending a weekend in the Windy City for St. Patty's Day. Obe of the many things to be excited about is the free parking at the Best Western. They are the only hotel in the city with free parking. That saves me about $25-$40 a night.

    By Michelle Blanchette on January 10, 2012 8:05 AM

    I did get to go to New York City to see the Christmas tree with my son and my friends, but unfortuently that is all we saw. I do regret that we did not have enough time to go to the 9 11 memorial site. I do definetly plan on going back to New York soon to see the Memorial and pay my respects to the many people who lost their lives so tragically.

    By Barbara Leaf on January 10, 2012 8:44 AM

    I really wanted to tour around the Washington, DC area. I would have used Washington, DC or Arlington, VA as my base. I would have toured the museums and gone shopping at the various malls. I would have taken a day trip to a beach such as Sandy Point State Park and/or taken a ride out to the countryside such as Leesburg or Front Royal. But, the summer and fall came and went and I didn't get to do it. Thank you for running this sweepstakes. Good luck to all.

    By Teresa White on January 10, 2012 8:55 AM

    We went on a 10,000 mile road trip this past October 2011. Started in Washington state and went to 16 states and DC. It was wonderful and we only stayed at Best Western hotels the whole trip. I think we stayed 30 nights and every BW was great. In April 2012 we are flying to Alaska to see our son and will be driving back on the Al-Can highway in a car he no longer wants, again we will only be staying at BW hotels. Have used map quest to help us with the route and finding BW hotels. We have not stayed at any other hotel in the last 3 years.Next year 2013 we will be going to Hawaii and of vourse only will be staying at BW.

    By April Sikkila on January 10, 2012 9:03 AM

    This year I would love to travel to the east coast. Visit Florida and take a Disney world / universal studios vacation :)

    By Alyssa Sparacino on January 10, 2012 9:10 AM

    This year I would love to take my girlfriend on a surprise vacation to Atlantis or maybe Hawaii somewhere tropical and romantic...we have been meaning to travel but our schedules are just too hectic, but this year I'm gonna do it.
    Hopefully by her birthday next month :)

    By Roxann Ames on January 10, 2012 9:27 AM

    It has been a tradition in our family to pick a spot on the Oregon Coast every year and go for at least 1 week. We haven't been able to go for a few years now and this Spring break my 15 year old and I would like to go explore the California coast for a change. I have friends and family in California that I never get to see so that would be a fantastic trip!!

    By Barbara Leaf on January 10, 2012 9:39 AM

    I want to travel around the Washington, DC/Arlington, VA area. I would tour the museums and use that area as a base to take a few day trips to places such as Leesburg, Mount Vernon, Williamsburg or Front Royal. Thanks for running this sweepstakes.

    By Brook on January 10, 2012 10:01 AM

    Last year, my wish was to visit the Canadian East Coast with my husband for the first time. His schedule got really busy and due to unforeseen circumstances we could not take the trip. My resolution is that this summer we hopefully get the chance to visit the East Coast and make a wonderful romantic holiday out of it!

    By Hayley on January 10, 2012 10:10 AM

    I have wanted to travel to Florida for a while now. I hope that I finally can this year. I plan on looking into some schools so that I can further my education in dental hygiene there. I would also love to visit my family, and my boyfriend's family that reside in Florida. If this were to happen, we would stay in the hotel we've stayed at the past two times we've traveled ; Best Western. They have never failed us, and we love what great rooms we get for such an inexpensive price. Thanks Best Western :)

    By Trishia Jacobs on January 10, 2012 10:12 AM

    My claim to fame is that I stayed at a Best Western in Rocamadour, France -- an incredible cliffside village. My last trip to France was in 2003. My wings have been clipped too long:( Returning to France is my 'raison d'etre.' :)

    By Johanna on January 10, 2012 10:27 AM

    I regret not travelling much at all in 2011 and vow to do much more this year!

    By Deborah on January 10, 2012 10:55 AM

    My resolution for 2012? To stay at a Best Western wherever we travel. With comfortable, appealing rooms; friendly and helpful staff; tasty breakfasts; and Reward points -- it's the Best way to go!!

    By Susan C on January 10, 2012 12:47 PM

    Last December instead of making reservations using BestWestern.com's website we tried another site and ended up booking a room at the Deerfield Beach Confort Suites in Florida. That turned out to be a big mistake! The front desk personnel was very unhelpful, they should take lessons on how to treat the hotel guests from the Best Western just next to them! Also, the breakfast bar had plenty of frozen bagels, but NO TOASTER! And when we asked to speak to the "so called" manager, she sent us to have breakfast to the BEST WESTERN, which was a delightful experience. I guess it is correct to say "you learn from your mistakes" so my 2012 resolution is: from now on only BEST WESTERN will do!

    By Vicki R on January 10, 2012 12:47 PM

    Hope to get to east side of lower Michigan to see more lighthouses.

    Our bucket list travel in 2011 Australia 5 weeks, New Zealand 2 weeks, Cook Islands 1 week, fantastic trip but not enough time in New Zealand.
    Beautiful people and country.

    I will travel to Florida and stay at best western, using my free nights that I win here.

    By John Curry on January 10, 2012 1:53 PM

    Upset I didn't make Hawaii in 2012. Now 2012 date will have to be cancelled due to wife's hip re[lacement. Due to nmot taking insurance, my costs are not reimbursed, so I am really upset my wife and I missed our 2012 vacation and now will miss the 2012 planned and not get a refund.

    But I did use my free Best Wetern for one night at Ocean Shores Washington. A great place, great staff, and the owls from the aric were there.

    Meant to get to the Pacific Northwest. Maybe this year.

    By SBM on January 10, 2012 2:54 PM

    Regret of 2011...... not moving my hotel choices earlier and staying in more BWs versus other hotel properties in the year ... For 2012 plan to stay in more BWs and less other hotel chain properties... and building up my rewards points so I can use them with my kids for a fun road trip. My daughter is a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives fan, and we did a fun trip last year hitting 17 places in one week, and we did a small one this year to visit 3 places as part of another travel plan.

    By Cathy Grayson on January 10, 2012 3:30 PM

    I choose to pay off my car in 2011. Some days and even months I regretted this move,but the year pasted and I made it. I missed holidays in 2011,and my body didnt enjoy the extra work I made it do.But another year and holidays are booked.

    By Leah S on January 10, 2012 3:30 PM

    We were invited to travel to India this winter but alas, couldn't afford the plane tickets. We have plans to go next winter for a month.

    By Lana Charlton on January 10, 2012 5:17 PM

    We are missing our BC family. Not making it out there during the summer is our regret. There's even a new baby from Spring 2010 that we need to meet!

    By Dave on January 10, 2012 5:21 PM

    I was going to stay at the Best Western Woodbury Inn and visit the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site last summer but wasn't able to make time for it. Later I happened to read that Sagamore Hill will be closed for renovations for the next two years! My resolution is when I have the idea to do something, just do it! I will probably still go stay at the Best Western Woodbury Inn and see some of the other sights in the area next summer.

    By LeeAnn on January 10, 2012 5:27 PM

    I really want to go back to Alaska this summer. The Midnight Sun is awesome...

    By Lynda E on January 10, 2012 5:28 PM

    If I could pick one dream trip in 2012, it would be to Budapest, a city with wildly romantic architecture, history that is both inspiring and tragic and wonderful people. There is also delicious food and music and dancing on almost every street. At least, this is what I see in my dreams, on travel shows and in carefully selected foreign movies.

    By Sheila Axelson on January 10, 2012 5:57 PM

    I regret talking my family back to Nova Scotia. My husbands family is there and we had a wonderful time visiting the TALL Ships and traveling along the coast a couple of years ago. All I hear now from my kids and family is when are we going back. Would love to tell them we're going back this summer!

    After a long international flight, it is nice to be welcomed by a friendly Best Western reception clerk and directed to our room where we can rest and refresh and sleep off the jet lag. Happily, we have never had a noise problem.

    By Tina W on January 10, 2012 6:20 PM

    2011 passed with memories of great road trips. Starting in Alabama, we made our way to New York via Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, D.C., Philly and New Jersey. Another was to Chattanooga, Nashville, Mammoth Caves, Memphis and Gulf Shores. Those were the major trips and we also made several trips to New Orleans and Panama City Beach and Tallahassee. We will be moving to California in a few months and we already have plans to explore the west coast. Happy New Year!!!

    It's our 35th wedding anniversary this year and would be the perfect time to take our first ever trip to Europe; we keep talking about it but so far have not made a plan. They say you are more likely to accomplish a goal if you write it down, so maybe this will get us moving---literally!

    By Greg O on January 10, 2012 8:20 PM

    We are planning on travelling to France this year with a 2 day stop over in Iceland!

    By Eddie L on January 10, 2012 8:57 PM

    I would like to hopefully take an all inclusive trip to Cuba since i never been to an all inclusive resort. No need to worry about food and drinks.

    By Susan Leslie Grant on January 10, 2012 8:58 PM

    My biggest regret on my last big trip was that I got trapped in the middle of the Christchurch earthquake Feb. 22, 2011, escaping with only the clothes on my back [no passport] and didn't get to continue on to Picton, Nelson and Wellington. Four days later when we were air lifted to Auckland I phoned home to tell everyone I was alive and safe only to find that my father had passed away.

    I feel blessed to be alive after being in the Christchurch Cathedral Tower only 45 minutes before it collapsed. Still love traveling and the wonderful people of New Zealand who made sure we got to safety and where well taken care of until we could be evacuated.

    I hope to travel to Miami this year to attend a friend's wedding.

    By Frances Fout on January 10, 2012 9:43 PM

    No vacations for us in the last 2 years. In 2010, I hurt my back & then I was laid off a month later. In 2011, I broke my leg. I would very much like to look forward to a family vacation with our Grandkids in 2012. Maybe to Disney World or Royal Gorge or Grand Canyon. Best Western is almost everywere, so we would have choices all across America!

    By Shakti B on January 11, 2012 1:29 AM

    We had decided to try going to the East Coast and travel around New England last year, but then had a change of plan and ended up in Texas instead. Texas is fine, but I think that I would still like to try sightseeing throughout New England.

    Colombia in South America and "The Far East", as my British friends call it, have been thoroughly researched and will become a reality in my adventure book this year.

    Taking the ultimate road trip for 12 days this spring, and staying at Best Westerns at every stop along the way. Savannah Georgia, Key West Florida, New Orleans Louisiana, Memphis Tennesee, St. Louis Missouri, Denver Colorado, Mammoth Hot Springs Wyoming, Seattle Washington, Sacramento California and San Diego California. I am taking my mother, who has always wanted to drive across the country, but her highlight will be to finally visit Graceland. I will be taking a one way flight from San Diego to move to Hawaii, and my mom and her boyfriend will be visiting friends along the way back home to PA. I have already logged 28 states plus DC, and with this trip will be getting very close to all 50. Thanks Best Western, for having great hotels (with free breakfasts) at all our destinations!

    By K Donovan on January 11, 2012 7:45 AM

    I always look forward to vacationing with my husband and 3 children but last year was the first time we were unable to plan a family trip. Unfortunately, it looks like 2012 will be the same. Although I understand the reasons why we need to give up traveling together and the added expense, it still doesn't keep my urge to watch for deals that pop up or enter wonderful giveaways like this one and hope for a different outcome!

    By Brenda Montgomery on January 11, 2012 8:09 AM

    I would love to show my daughter more of Canada. She is seven and we have not done any travelling. This year I had planned on going through the interior of BC but was unable to because I was diagnosed with cancer and ended up going for treatment instead:(

    By Candace Thompson on January 11, 2012 9:33 AM

    In 2011, we only made a long weekend trip to the Big Bend area of Texas. Great trip, but we'd done that one before. The year before, however, we traveled all the way to Yellowstone National Park from Texas by car and spent time in the Black Hills on the way there. Then, we came back home via Colorado through the Rockies. We didn't have time to visit the Badlands on the way up. [sigh, so sad] Thus, another trip is warranted to see the Badlands. Yes!!!

    By Candace Thompson on January 11, 2012 9:36 AM

    Instead of that long weekend trip to Big Bend, I need a 2-wk trip through the Badlands!

    I always enjoy when my wife and I go on a trip. Last year we talked about, but did not go to Orlando. I really missed the opportunity and hope that it will be afforded to us in the future.

    By Amy Freedman on January 11, 2012 11:06 AM

    I would love to visit New Orleans again. I have not been there in many years and feel it is important to see the city post-Katrina. The people are so friendly, the food is great and the culture is so diverse. It has been almost twenty years since I was last there. Thanks to Best Western for sponsoring this contest!! Lets all see America!!

    By bonnie macleod on January 11, 2012 11:09 AM

    I want to take my son on a bike trip to the four corners area (arizona colorado new mexico utah) this year as he will be 22 and done his schooling.I want to do this before he starts work and his life as we all know how difficult it is to get together and go somewhere once our kids move and start there lives.

    By Tanya Cline on January 11, 2012 12:36 PM

    My travel resolution is for my husband and I to take our kids to Hawaii. They are still young but have always had a facination with it as have I. We promised to take them this year but it didn't work out financially so we have to find a way to make it work this year. It doesn't hurt that Best Westerns are wonderful hotels either! :)

    By jamie on January 11, 2012 2:19 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 is I did not travel to see my mom enough! So, my resolution for 2012 is to go see her as often as possible. She comes to visit here every few months...I could give this BW giftcard to her! It would save her some expense!

    By Katelyn on January 11, 2012 4:10 PM

    On New Year's Eve 2012 I spent a lovely evening with my two sons at the Best Western Capilano in Vancouver BC. With our tidy room, dinner out at a restaurant within walking distance, a great view of the Lion's Gate Bridge all lit up for the holidays, and lots of good movies, we really enjoyed our night. Nice memories!

    Last year I wished there was more sunshine in my neck of the woods as I like exploring it......in the sunshine. I had to go to Mexico for 4 wks to find some. This year I am only going for 3 1/2 and am hoping to spend my summer in the Canadian sunshine and blue skys.

Didnt happen , spent the entire trip stuck in his truck in traffic , getting lost and running behind . I regretting going cause I only get 10 days vacation a year and wasted 4 of them stuck in a truck !

Starting in northeast PA we are visiting Savannah GA, Key West FL, New Orleans LO, Memphis TN, St. Louis MI, Denver CO, Mammoth Hot Springs WY, Helena MT, Seattle WA, Sacramento CA, and San Diego CA before I hop a one way flight to live my dream in Hawaii. My mom's highlight will be visiting Graceland, she loves Elvis and has always wanted to go. She and her boyfriend will be visiting friends along the way back to PA...but on our trip out we will be staying at Best Westerns at every stop along the way. Thanks for always having clean, comfy rooms (most with free breakfasts) that I can count on for every road trip..

    My husband and I drove to see his parents in Texas for Christmas, then stopped on the way back in New Orleans for our 3rd wedding anniversary. I got sick the 2nd day into the trip, and spent most of the time in the hotel throwing up, so I missed most of the Texas visit, and 2 of the 3 days of New Orleans. My stomach was so upset that I couldn't enjoy ANY spicy, Cajun cuisine! WAHHH!!!! I want a redo!!!!!! We also stayed at a non-Best Western for the Texas leg of the trip because the one his mother suggested was closer, and It ended up being an AWFUL hotel! I want a DO-OVER!!!!

    By Steve on January 13, 2012 7:28 PM

    I would love to take my kids to see the ocean. They have never seen it before. I think they would have a great time playing in the water and collecting shells. Building sandcastles would be the best! I want to give them memories.

    No regrets in 2011 having used multiple Best Westerns during travels. And in 2012 it is going to be better with a visit and first night in the Best Western in Venice, Italy before heading to Cortina and a week of skiing.

    By Michelle Gucwa on January 14, 2012 9:35 AM

    I'll be getting married this year, and everyone always wants to travel to a warm, resort destination for their honeymoon. Although I'd love a trip to Hawaii, Jamaica, or other such places, there's two other areas I'd like to visit. One would be to revisit Austin, Texas. It's got the best laid back, half college town half booming city vibe. With the great food, the music, and all there is to see, I'd love to go back. The other region would be Oregon/Washington. My fiance and I have this weird obsession with Oregon (go Ducks!) and Washington. We've never been there, but we have this amazing idea of what it's like. So we'd love an opportunity to travel, whether it be to a resort destination, bring us back to Austin, or explore somewhere new like Oregon.

    Vancouver! I just moved to Seattle this past August, and the by golly it is difficult to get to the land over yonder without a vehicle. I have been stalking ride-shares constantly without any luck. Why Vancouver in the winter you might ask? Easy--I am missing that white fluffy thing that all Seattle-lites dread, SNOW. Think about all the possibilities...snowshoeing, igloo building, snowball fights, snowangels, snowcones, snowbeards, hypothermia, snowboarding..etc. One other perk, I will finally be able to go to a NHL Game. Go Canucks! Bucket List Item #36

    No regrets in 2011. Having stayed in different Best Western over the years. Would like to travel up to yellowstone park some time soon

    By Gene Adams on January 14, 2012 9:37 AM

    No regrets in 2011 after staying at multiple Best Westerns in the US. For 2012, looking forward to the first night at the Best Western in Venice, Italy before a week of skiing at Cortina...so the only regret that the stay is not at a Best Western.

    By Laura Andrade on January 14, 2012 9:37 AM

    I would love to travel to Pennsylvania or wherever my son will be doing his residency since he will be gone for three years.

    By Melissa Green on January 14, 2012 9:37 AM

    I regret that I didn't make the time to travel with my family. The kids are getting older and I vow go on a vacation with them this year. Maybe I will take them to Pittsburgh for a weekend:)

    By Anna Carson on January 14, 2012 9:37 AM

    We are planning a trip to Arizona in April by car from Georgia and in August a much needed trip to my homestate of Wisconsin, again by car. We love to drive places because we get to see more.

    Live in Alaska, so anywhere you can see the sun and feel its heat. :)

    Looking forward to an amazing road trip to the Queen Charlotte Islands. I have wanted to go for years and my boyfriend and I are finally doing it. I enjoy my travels outside of Canada, but also inside - which often gets overlooked. After this all I have left to cover Canada is the Territories. Can't wait!!

    By Denise on January 14, 2012 9:40 AM

    My best friend are either traveling to the Virgin Islands or Hawaii. We are in the planning stages now. : )

    By Courtney on January 14, 2012 9:41 AM

    Vancouver! I just moved to Seattle this past August, and the by golly it is difficult to get to the land over yonder without a vehicle. I have been stalking ride-shares constantly without any luck. Why Vancouver in the winter you might ask? Easy--I am missing that white fluffy thing that all Seattle-lites dread, SNOW. Think about all the possibilities...snowshoeing, igloo building, snowball fights, snowangels, snowcones, snowbeards, hypothermia, snowboarding..etc. One other perk, I will finally be able to go to a NHL Game. Go Canucks! Bucket List Item #36

    By Jody Thomnas on January 14, 2012 9:42 AM

    My family and I are crazy about Disney and love going to Orlando! Sadly, I fell which led to an abdominal wound and finally surgery so we had to not only forget any plans to Florida but we were going to at least go to Maine for a mini vacation! That too didn't work as I got an infection. So for 7 months I had weekly hospital visits and daily nurse visits and an eventual surgery! Hopefully recuperation will be done by April vacation and if not then we are off when school is out! The hope is for Disney/Orlando but Maine is also an option as well as a 3 or 4 day *inexpensive* cruise! At least that's the hope!

    I would like to take my 2 granddaughters (15 & 13) to England, they have lots of cousins and other relatives that they have never met yet.

    By Tracy Hansen on January 14, 2012 9:43 AM

    Last year we drove to Southern California and visited the 5 theme parks and the beaches. This year I am planning a cruise from New Orleans to Cozamel and back. I've never been anywhere east of Colorado. It will be nice to see a different part of the United States.

    By Randy Norman on January 14, 2012 9:45 AM

    I regret not going on a cruise with my parents to alaska before my dad passed away. i hope to accomplish this with my mom soon.

    By Sharon Whitaker on January 14, 2012 9:46 AM

    My husband and I have always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. We were within 100 miles of it for a business trip last year but never found the time to make that drive. I want to see it in 2012!

    Planning a road trip along the Florida Panhandle this spring.

    By Debbie Kocher on January 14, 2012 9:47 AM

    My husband & I went to Florida to celebrate our anniversary in September, 2011-we got the unfortunate news that my mother-in-law passed away one day after arrival so we headed home heavy-hearted. We are now planning a return trip in June, 2012 with our granddaughter - I'm sure it will be a happier time....the circle of life....

    By Lorraine Thomas on January 14, 2012 9:48 AM

    Due to illness between myself and my daughter in 2011 we never really left our house! I would love to take my great granddaughter this summer up to Maine to go on a lobster boat and sea the ocean and some of the other great sights. Would naturally like to do some shopping and of course have some great lobster boils while there!

    By Margaret Chizek on January 14, 2012 9:49 AM


    I will go with my son and daughter-in-law to Everett, Washington for my oldest grandson's wedding in August. And we'll be able to see other family members whom we haven't seen in years.

    By Randy Norman on January 14, 2012 9:50 AM

    Being unemployed all last year except for a few wonderful temp assignments, ANYWHERE will be welcome. I think it will be New York as my cousin and a good friend both live on Manhattan.

    By Elizabeth on January 14, 2012 9:52 AM

    My husband and I traveled a lot between AL and NC in 2011, the first being where our families live and the latter where we live. This year, we would love to get to travel somewhere out of these two states, perhaps New Mexico; I've heard it is beautiful there.

    By Cyndy on January 14, 2012 9:54 AM

    I regret not going to explore the Oregon coast with my Mom who passed away in 2011. I would live to do this in 2012.

    The place I most want to go to in 2012 that I didn't get to go to in 2011 is Montreal. My birth place that is only 4500kms from where I live in Alberta but havn't been to in almost 20yrs. I am Married now and would Love to bring my wife there as well.

    I did not travel at all in 2011. I am going to make up for it in 2012. I am going to San Deigo, Ca. first, then many more trips, I hope.

    By Laurie on January 14, 2012 10:02 AM

    I'll be going to Austin, plus hopefully D.C. and Colorado Springs and Philly this year! At least!

    I want to go to Hawaii. I have never been there, and my husband was stationed there before we were married, and always tell me how lovely it is there. Sigh. Someday.

    In 2012 I would like to travel to Nashville.

    By Linda Berg on January 14, 2012 10:07 AM

    Last summer, was the first year I got enough time off of work, to take a sizeable trip on our motorcycle! We left our hometown of Oregon, headed to the very Southern tip of Florida. After dodging tornado's, rain and hot weather...we just entered Florida, and had to head back home. Not reaching our destination, but just enough to say wen to Florida! Hope to get a chance at that much time off of work again this summer and head to the East Coast...We'll see.

    By jane sandona on January 14, 2012 10:13 AM

    I pretty much covered Italy during 2011, but did not get to Cinque Terra

    We went to Nashville, TN last year; but we need to go to Michigan to see our grandchildren. We have never got to see them as of yet and we plan on going there either this spring or summer.

    By Susan on January 14, 2012 10:23 AM

    My regret was not going on more roadtrips. There is nothing more therapeutic for me than hopping into a car and just driving.

    By Linda Berg on January 14, 2012 10:23 AM

    Last summer, I got an unheard of 3 weeks vacation! We decided this was the year to go from our hometown of Oregon to the Southern tip of Florida, on our motorcycle! After dodging such bad weather of tornado's, rain, and such hot weather, we hit the state of Florida, and ended up having to turn around and head for home in order to make it back home in time for work! Well, we CAN say we got to Florida, but that's about the extent of it. This Summer? Not sure what we will do.

    By Ken on January 14, 2012 10:23 AM

    Will finally make it to 'John Ford' country and see the Four Corners, Monument Valley, and Chaco Canyon.

    I would like to take my family to ski at Killington Ski Resort in Vermont. We live in Maine and would to get to as many ski areas around New England in 2012 as possible. Winning a $250 Best Western Travel Card would sure help with that!

    By Jane Scouten on January 14, 2012 10:31 AM

    Because of sickness in my family, we were unable to travel or take a vacation in 2011. It is the beginning of a new year, things are looking up, and I would love to travel to Florida to visit my parents.

    By Johntah Wykawarzecha on January 14, 2012 10:33 AM

    Two places that I had planned on travelling to in 2011 that never made it, are Florida and Hawaii! This year for sure, both places are on my list!

    By Win K. on January 14, 2012 10:34 AM

    On a quick trip to Florida last spring we stopped in Boston on the way home to see a Toronto-Boston hockey game. Great game - Leafs won! We stayed at the unique BW Roundhousel what a great spot. We realized later, though, that we didn't see the real Boston, and would like to get back there this year and see some of the history, as well as some of the newer city.

    By Matt D. on January 14, 2012 10:35 AM

    Well, we're crisscrossing the country, again, for a job. Would like to see what's in between.

    By Lisa W on January 14, 2012 10:47 AM

    Travel regret: Not enough. We travel a lot on our motorcycles, wish we had been able to more of it. Travel Resolution: Get on those bikes and see the more of the USA!!!

    By Carol L. on January 14, 2012 10:54 AM

    Friends have been asking us to visit them in Florida for the last three years...this is the year to make it happen!

    By Sherry on January 14, 2012 10:54 AM

    My travel regret is that I haven't done any. Thank the economy for that. If money and time were no object a couple of places I'd love to go would be Australia &I Ireland, Scotland would be cool too. Within this country I'd love to take my grandson to Disney. Thanks for the opportunity!

    By Patricia Ketterer on January 14, 2012 10:58 AM

    This year I want to get to spend more quality time with my newly found sister in Indianapolis. I know it may not seem like much compared to others on here, but it is what is important to me. You have to take the time to make memories because you never know when that will be all you have. I want to make as many memories as possible! The Good Lord called one Sister home too soon but blessed me with another and I want to make the most of our time. Make the most of your time with your families.

    By Kristian on January 14, 2012 10:58 AM

    We would like to take our girls to the beach this year. We wanted to last year, but didn't get a chance. Since the passing of my husband's dad last month, we want to make it a point to not put off things (like this trip) that are important to our family.

    By Dianne Severs on January 14, 2012 11:07 AM

    I would like to go to eastern canada; an area I've never been. Specifically, Niagra Falls - for the falls, and the area around it. I'd like to travel on the boat that goes on the falls, and visit some of the historic sites. I'd also like to stay at a Best Western there. I like comparing the various Best Western Hotels and have found wonderfully soft beds, great service (even after a late flight), great prices, greater locations (close to tourist attractions and transportation), and good food. So the one thing I chose during a vacation in 2011 were Best Western Hotels, but I will definitely do so again in 2012. I'd also like to see my sister in Ottawa.

    By Dianne Severs on January 14, 2012 11:16 AM

    I'd like to travel to eastern Canada. Specifically Niagra Falls. The tourist advertisements attracted me, but I know people who have visited. I'd like to take the tour boat on the falls, and also see a few heritage sites. Ofcourse I would be staying at a Best Western Hotel, which I stayed at in 2011 as well. It will be easy to check the locations and amenities on the Best Western site. In 2011 I stayed in Vancouver and found my Best Western Hotel in Vancouver NW to have all I needed; including soft pillows, soft bed, great breakfast, greater location, and a terrific price. I could also take a side trip from there to see my sister in Ottawa.

    By Lorraine Thomas on January 14, 2012 11:17 AM

    2011 was a tough year as both my daughter and myself were sick most of the year between the two of us! With the timing we were never able to go on vacation at all with nurses coming daily for almost 7 months! So I have high hopes for 2012 to either take my great granddaughter to Maine to sea the ocean and go out on a lobster boat as well as some delicious lobster boils. A 3 or 4 day cruise would also be nice in addition to Maine or even 3 or 4 days to Disney Orlando! Anywhere from home with the family will be a wonderful getaway!

    2012 is the beginning of a New Year. I will be retiring in March, so as a surprise to my 2 grandsons, I am taking them to Texas to visit family. It will be a long trip as I am the only driver, but I feel this experience will be very rewarding. I get time to spend with my grandsons, we get to visit family and Mom and Dad get a vacation of their own.

    We wil be stopping 2 nights along the way, so of course they will be at Best Westerns Plus. I have stayed in the Best Western Plus in Allentown, Pennsylvania at least 10 times this year. That is why I will only stay at Best Western Plus.

    By Ted Fuller on January 14, 2012 11:23 AM

    Regrets for 2011 - not staying longer in Maui - 7 days is not enough time to enjoy all the great sites and things to do.
    Resolutions 2012 - travel more to exotic places not just the touristy ones, but may include Bahamas, Fiji and New Zealand. Staying at Best Western hotels more often.

    By Kathy on January 14, 2012 11:24 AM

    I would go to Ocala, Florida and stay at the Best Western there and then to Disney in Orlando. My dad has Alzheimer's and I have been out of work, so can't afford to fly/drive down there, but would like to see him, honest, while he still remembers me, then my boyfriend and I would drive the hour to DisneyWorld, where we have never been together, and relax and unwind there.

    Would love to visit New York. My husband and I grew up there and have lots of family we haven't seen i over twenty years. How great that would be to reconnect and to visit old neighborhoods! We have great nieces and nephews we have only met over Skype but never in person. My grandchildren would be able to meet their family for the very first time.

    I so regret that I DIDN"T get to see my son's this year again for the holidays. It has been over 10 years since we have been together in the same room.
    My resolution is to figure out a way to fly them both to WI for a visit.
    One is in NY and one is in TX.
    Winning this would sure help in making this resolution a reality.

    By Joann tompkins-winborn on January 14, 2012 1:12 PM

    my regret was that my sons and i spent another holiday season apart. it has been over 10 years since we were in the same room together. My resolution is to figure a way to fly them both to WI for a family reunion. One is in TX and one in NY and none of us have the resources to pay for plane tickets. winning this would help towards making this resolution a reality.

    2011 was a year of extensive life saving surgeries for me. It was devastating to my children watching me go from one surgery to another.
    I prayed to survive, and to be able to take that trip with my children back to my birthplace that I have not seen in over 41 years.
    I would love to take this journey here in 2012, because 2011 has showed us that life is not a guarantee.

    By Tom Hart on January 14, 2012 2:18 PM

    My biggest travel regret occurred a few years back when I visited the San Francisco area several times on business, and did not take the opportunity to visit NAPA valley
    or the redwood forests nearby. My biggest regret for last year was that the Best Western Main Gate in Kissimmee, FL that we spent 3 wks. at last winter is no longer a Best Western. It changed hands and raised prices!

    By joy stanton roe on January 14, 2012 2:28 PM

    2011 was a very busy year for our family. Growing twin children (with one who has Cerebral Palsy & Epilepsy).... can make being a single parent alot to manage. We didnt' travel as much as we wanted. We really wanted to hit Anaheim before year end... but due to my son's disabilities...and having to home school him now, we just couldn't make the almighty dollar stretch as far. ;( This coming year 2012... my daughter (the other twin) and I do plan to take him to Anaheim! We have worked hard to collect Air Miles... and we only redeem them on BW Hotels...because they are excellent and courteous towards those with special needs, really they are the best! For the past 12 years, we only use BW.... we've tried others and have only been disappointed with the lack of regard towards those in wheelchairs. I do have the most precious twins....and they do deserve to have a little fun..... afterall, they are only young for a little time ;)

    By Kathy S on January 14, 2012 2:32 PM

    My travel regret for 2011 is, I didn't travel at all! I would love to go to Ft. Myers Beach, Florida with wonderful friends. Estero Blvd. in February to get away from the snow in Ohio.

    My husband and I have traveled to many foreign countries but now we want to "SEE THE USA". We have only traveled south of North Carolina and only westward to Tenn. We would like to start traveling westward and see where it takes us. USA here we come if we win!

    By joy stanton roe on January 14, 2012 2:42 PM

    Being a single parent of 12 yr old twins can sometimes be a challenge. More so, when one child has severe disabilities and the other loves to travel. I have been truly blessed with these two children. They love to see new things and explore theme parks. Our goal was to visit Anaheim in 2011. Due to some health challenges with my son, we were not able to go quite that far, but we did get in some camping, and a few stays in a BW Hotel. We are always treated so well when we stay. BW has the best courteous staff to help when you are travelling with a wheelchair! This year, we plan to reach our travel goal of visiting Anaheim! Not only do I feel a great sense of independence travelling with my children, but to see their smiling faces, their laughter, their appreciation of seeing something different, makes it all worthwhile. So, would we appreciate an added bonus from you? Yes we would!

    Oh so many places to choose from, think I would like to go up the CA coast from maybe San Diego, have not done that in about 40 years. Maybe a stay in San Simeon area. USA travel is the best for this California native.

    In 2011 I had really hoped to visit Charleston, South Carolina. I am fascinated by the concept of 'Southern Hospitality' and I admire the elegance, graciousness etc. of its rich history. I think a visit there would be a restorative delight to the soul. Unfortuately I never made the trip. I would LOVE to be able to make the visit in 2012!

    I would like to travel anywhere, and right now, anywhere not associated with square dancing. Enough hotel reservations due to square dancing events. I would like to see more of the world, even see more of the USA. Been told havent really seen the USA until you see the Statue of Liberty, so that is on list, also Hersheys town, the big Coke Cola town, and anything inbetween. Also another trip to Hawaii would be nice, Japan, Ireland, Sweden, England, France. Heck anywhere.

    By Erin on January 14, 2012 4:45 PM

    My travel regret is not being able to take my family on vacation. My husband and I work countless hours per week and our last family vaction was 5 years ago. It's LONG overdue! We would love to take our kids to California.

    My travel regret in 2011, is that I spent my "vacation" in a tent in my backyard for two days. In 2012, with a pending foreclosure and bankruptcy, all I can hope for is a weekend away with my husband. Our "dream vacation" is a week on the beach in the Carribean, ANYWHERE!!!

    By Michelle Hurlbut on January 14, 2012 6:23 PM

    Spent 2 days in backyard tent for my 2011 "staycation". Due to bankruptcy and foreclosure, all I can hope for in 2012 is a weekend alone with my husband. Dream vacation is a week in Costa Rica!

    So little time in 2011 with waiting on my granddaughter to be born. I'd love to get to Hawaii in 2012!

    By Nancy Beenken on January 14, 2012 7:39 PM

    This winter we are going to take a trip to Kissimmee, Celebration, and then onto Siesta Key Beach in Florida. It is good to travel and get away from your daily schedules and commitments so you can look at your life in a broader spectrum and it is a good time to reflect.

    Would love to visit my parents in Oregon this summer. Haven't been in over 2 years. Would also like to go to Moab, UT for Jeep Safari around Easter. Last time we went was over 4 years ago. Las Vegas is always a favorite of mine, even though we go almost every year.

    The thing I regret not being able to do in 2011 is travel more to see famil that is across the US from us. I resolve to take time this year to travel and spend time with them.

    By Vera on January 15, 2012 7:58 AM

    Went to Europe on a Meditteraean cruise. Left from Italy and returned to Italy. Wish we could have spent more time in Rome as there is far too much to in in 2 days. Next time we wil also try to get to the Amalfi coast.

    Last year we drove to Southern California and did the theme parks. This year I am planning a cruise from New Orleans to Cozamell. Hope it pans out, I've never been east of Colorado.

    By Susan on January 15, 2012 9:50 AM

    My husband traveled for work from Washington State to Virginia in October of 2011 and I didn't go with him. BIG mistake! He called every night to say how I will have to get there with him another time to visit all the historical homes of our forefathers and to check out the antique stores and try different foods. He's not an emotional guy, but after 26 years of marriage, he cried on the phone when he said he couldn't enjoy all those visits without me. He would turn to comment on things and I wouldn't be there. Next time, I will go with him. I can enjoy the hotel room and spas while he's in his meetings and then go exploring with him after work!

    By Rose on January 15, 2012 9:53 AM

    I had been planning a Waterfall hunt across Michigan's UP for the past two years. Last year was the year I was going to go until I trusted who I thought was a friend to drive my vehicle the week before the big trip. Sadly to say she crash my truck and all funds for the trip went to repairing my vehicle. Biggest regret ever. Going to go this year. No stopping me. Truck all fixed and if I have to rough it in it because of funds I will. Excited to no end for this great adventure.

    My travel reget was that I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in NewMarket, Ontario. My son was married in Kettleby and his bride booked our reservations. I only managed to get two hours of broken sleep. The noise from the other rooms was unbearable. I complained to management four times throughout the night and was told there wasn't much they could do about it. Next time I need a place to stay I'm booking a Best Western room myself.

    My husband and I regret that we only got a single night away as a couple, and that was at a hotel in town. We hope to get away more frequently this year, so we can stay connected despite our busy lives.

    By Becky Moore on January 16, 2012 6:32 AM

    We usually like to try to get away for a weekend in the winter with our kids so they can go swimming in the hotel pool and have some fun. I would love to be able to spend a night or two away this year with just my husband as it is so hard to find time together. I'm not sure I see that happening for several reasons but it's a nice thought anyways!

    By Carlos on January 16, 2012 6:33 AM

    I would go to Ireland and immerse myself in the history of that wonderful island!

    By Ali on January 16, 2012 6:34 AM

    Believe it or not, it is to travel to my home state to see my parents and sister, as well as the cities that were fun to visit as a child. We haven't been back for almost 5 years and the children would like to visit their grandparents home and see the sights in their state. Plus, it would save my parents from having to keep traveling to see us all of the time.

    By Leslie Nutbrown on January 16, 2012 6:35 AM

    In 2012, I want to travel as often and far as possible in my own state of California.
    I've done most of my traveling out of the country or on the east coast of the US, and I realized after a few California road trips this year, that I need to explore every nook and cranny of my own home spectacular state!.

    I've got two 2012 travel resolutions:

    1. Get the family back to Disneyland... and the family (me, my wife, my 10 yr old son & my 6 yr old son) are all so "on board" that we're chipping in part of our allowances in order to finance the trip.

    2. See Niagara Falls - which, barring some life weirdness, will happen. My trip is already booked.

    By Olivia P on January 16, 2012 7:27 AM

    By Sally on January 16, 2012 7:56 AM

    Regrets? Well, regret is a wasted emotion, however I would have liked to have travelled more in Canada and the US last year, so am vowing to do a bit more of it in 2012, got a few trips in the planning stage now and Best Western will be a part of the trips.

    By Brandon Piastka on January 16, 2012 8:55 AM

    I took a trip to Mexico a few years back and had so much fun that I knew I would want to go again. So it seems like I have been trying to plan another beach vacation but that I only get as far as looking up fun places to go and dreaming about them! I'd love to actually go on a vacation instead of just dreaming about one! Taking time out of our busy work schedules and demanding home schedules only gets harder as time goes on...so there really is no time like the present!

    By Lee Wilson on January 16, 2012 9:04 AM

    I would love to go anywhere with my family, but we would like to visit Washington D.C. and see all the sites of our beautiful capital.

    We really want to go to Hawaii. We had the chance to go to Oahu last year, but family issues interfered.

    Regret not going to the Grand Canyon last year when in Arizona. Would love
    to visit again and see it.

    For 2012, we're planning a long southern trip to include the Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns, Padre Island, and Western Florida. We'll be taking advantage of the pet-friendly Best Westerns along the way, because we can't leave our best friends behind.

    By Lora Leber on January 16, 2012 9:41 AM

    I would love to win a Best Western travel card so that I can visit my brother in Minneapolis. I am trying to arrange a family reunion with my daughter and grandchildren visiting my brother and his wife and their grandchildren. A nice bonus is that they live near Mall of America for lots of shopping. Good times !

    2012 is an exciting year as it is our 30th wedding anniversary. It falls on 9/11/12 so I would LOVE to be able to take a trip back to the first place we went on a trip together before we were married...San Francisco and Carmel, CA! Praying this can happen and this gift card would help! Thanks!

    By Amy Menas on January 16, 2012 9:53 AM

    I would LOVE to able to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this year on 9/11/12 in the first place we took a trip together, San Francisco and Carmel, CA!

    By Linda Stewart on January 16, 2012 9:56 AM

    Last summer we flew a small plane into Bismark, ND, only to discover there were no hotel rooms available anywhere in the area. We had to sleep in a pilots lounge at the airport. The one saving grace was that a stranger took us to a Best Western (fully booked of course) and dropped us off so we could have a really nice dinner. Obvious moral of the story: Book Ahead!

    By Denali Arias on January 16, 2012 9:57 AM

    I'm hoping to spend our first wedding anniversary in Ontario, Canada!

    A lot of people won't believe this but we are making the ultimate sacrifice and going to Toronto with friends. He is a die hard Leaf fan. We have great seats for a game in February. Can't wait. Hope I can get to the Bata factory store. I wasn't aware of it till I saw it on this site. Thanks.

    My son, who is 37 was born in Colorado Springs, Co. He has never been back to his birthplace since he was born. We had planned to return this last year but because of money restraints were unable to. His so Alex was born in October and my son wants to return to his birthplace now.

    I booked a trip to Greece last fall. I have wanted to go for twenty+ years. The week before I was to depart, I got in an auto accident-not my fault, and due to my injuries,I had to cancel. Fortunately, I had travel insurance, but I won't be able to go until next spring. So I hope to go to Greece this year.
    There fore, I have a travel regret from 2011, and a travel aspiration for 2012

    I took a trip to Paris and planned on going over to England to Visit Coronation St.
    I love that show and always swore I would have a drink in the pub:)
    England is the place I would love to be! Any Best westerns there?

    By LORNA OLSEN on January 16, 2012 10:35 AM

    In 2012 my husband and I are planning a long summer vacation through out the eastern part of the United States. We have not been able to travel after his military retirement in 1989. I have now retired and plan to visit the colonial states and visit past friends that he has not seen from the US ARMY. We will be staying at BEST WESTERN HOTELS as we like the summer promotions. Which will help us in future stays at Best Western's.

    I booked flights for October, 2011 to Germany, to visit my new grandson, son and daughter-in-law, then on to India to participate in my yearly polio immunization and mop up for Rotary International. India entry visa application requires I send my passport with the necessary application documents to Toronto. UPS lost my passport. As a result, I missed my flights. Cancelled flights incurring a cancellation penalty but much worse missed a visit with my new grandson and missed the immunization project. Made the same plans for January. Fell in December and severely cracked my tailbone. Difficult to sit for a prolonged period. Cancelled again. I am determined this trip shall happen. I plan to try again for October 2012. By then I hope all will be well. If my karma is slightly askew, hopefully it will have righted by then.

    We love to travel by car and this summer are planning a trip driving from Gilbert, AZ to Prince Rupert, Canada hoping the car ferry to Juneanu, Ak for 3 days and then getting off in Haines, AK. Driving from Haines, AK to Anchorage. Our return trip will be from Anchorage back to Gilbert, AZ via Canada - Baniff.

    My husband has COPD and we really haven't gone far. Went to Hampton Beach last summer and he couldn't even walk on the beach. Would like to go to Nashville, TN as he loves country music. We could drive there and take a transport wheelchair with us. Our stays at Best Western have always been THE BEST! Great accomodations, food and housekeeping.

    By th crabtree on January 16, 2012 11:30 AM

    Next summer, to take my young son on the Sterns, KY Train ride thru the restored "coal town" (in the mountains in Eastern KY). We'll stay at the BW in Somerset, KY.

    I went to some amazing places in 2011 (like Hawaii) but for 2012 I wish to go to London in England to really one of my biggest dreams! I really hope to go to Europe this year like in France, Spain, Germany, Italy... I will go back to Boston and sleep at the New Englander Best Western in Woburn, near Boston! This is the best hotel my boyfiend and I have been in this area and the people who work there are really nice!

    By Rhonda E on January 16, 2012 11:45 AM

    My resolution for 2012 is to take many more mini vacations with my husband via our motorcycle in around western US. We want to document these travels through photography and journalling to follow as recommendations or enjoy.

    I guess I don't know if I will be traveling out of state or not, but whenever I got some place and I am going to stay over-- I make sure they have a Best Western in that town, and I always stay at them. I have never found a Best Western that the people weren't warm and friendly.

    By Connie on January 16, 2012 12:18 PM

    I may not go out of state in 2012 but I always make sure whenever I travel that there is a Best Western in that town. Never found a Best Western that wasn't friendly.

    By kenneth Stern on January 16, 2012 12:23 PM

    My family roots go back over two hundred years in the Ticonderoga & Crown Point, NY area. I'd love to meet my other family members still living there and make new friends as well. That would be the ultimate family reunion for 2012 in my opinion. Due to various deaths in my family & job reduction hardships, I wasn't able to make this dream come true in 2011. I definitely want that to happen this year.

    By Doris on January 16, 2012 12:46 PM

    I have no regrets for all the places we have driven on this beautiful country. Since we are older and driving is not an option I would love to FLY to Hawii. Thank you.
    Doris

    By kenneth m stern on January 16, 2012 12:52 PM

    Due to my job loss last year, I could not afford to visit the area where my family has had roots for over 200 years. That would be the Lake Champlain area, specifically, Ticonderoga, NY. I would absolutely love to see that part of my family who still live there. That would be the greatest family reunion of my whole life.

    we are hoping to get to Hawaii this year. We are are both in our mid fifties but are have only been a couple for a little over a year. We discovered that we both love to travel and were able to do some in 2011 but are hoping to do a lot more in 2012 including Hawaii.

    By PattiF on January 16, 2012 1:31 PM

    2012 is the year I want to see the Southeast. I've been neglecting this region too long. I made it to the Florida Panhandle in Dec 2011. The Best Western in Fort Walton Beach is a great place to stay. I'm looking at Best Westerns in St. Augustine to stay in this March.

    By Mel McGee on January 16, 2012 2:45 PM

    In August of 2011 my family (my husband, myself, and three children) spent three weeks travelling through the Kootenays and the Okanagan in British Columbia.(The Best Western Kelowna is our newest Standard of Excellence!) If we had enough time and money, we would have gone on to Vancouver and over to Vancouver Island to visit family. Maybe next trip....

    By Lorraine on January 16, 2012 3:02 PM

    After many years of wishing we are planning a trip to France... in May ... can't wait just checking the Best Western locations and thank goodness there are some... nice to be able to count on something when you are travelling...

    By Catherine on January 16, 2012 3:09 PM

    It would mean the world to me if I could go to San Francisco,CA. I worked very hard to send my oldest daughter to college this year and my youngest is in high school. This would be great trip for my hard work and rewarding their hard work. Being a single parent is a struggle,but getting this trip would be wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Winter on January 16, 2012 3:24 PM

    I have not been out of the state in so many years I can't even count. 12, at least, but I'm sure more like 13 or 14+. Even that was just to go to a nearby state long enough to pick a friend up at the airport, grab some lunch, and head back home. In the last 18 years, I have spent 2 nights in a hotel. Once, when I went out of town but was still in state, and once when some friends and I had a "girl's night out" and a few of us stayed in a hotel room.

    I want to do some traveling- I think about it all the time! And I am always excited for a chance to stay in a hotel because I do it so very rarely. So whether it would be to stay right here and have another "fancy" night or weekend with friends, or if it would be to travel out of town or out of state to see a band or to visit my sister who I haven't seen in 10 years or so, it would be a special event to me!

    By Laranda on January 16, 2012 3:54 PM

    My travel regret is I had planned to go to Europe with my friend for six weeks at the start of the year, but decided not to go as I was able to start a new job the same time. I'm glad to have a job, but it sure makes it tough to get away, even though it is in the travel industry :(

    By Jackie MacNeil on January 16, 2012 4:23 PM

    Up until I turned 70, I was in Europe at least once a year. Now I am 73 and am seeing more of the USA. New York City is next on my Bucket List.

    My husband and I planned to travel across Canada from Alberta to Nova Scotia on our motorcycle in a couple of years. Due to some health concerns my husband has I decided the sooner the better. So for his early retirement this summer and our 35th wedding anniversary I am going to surprise him and tell him we are going this summer. If you know who we are please don't let the cat out of the bag just yet. Thanks.

    Our hotel near the airport advertised they had shuttle service, but it was really an old cadillac. When another couple tried to get in with us, the driver told me to sit on my husband's lap. When that wasn't bad enough, the driver then loaded their luggage in the trunk, then closed the trunk, but the keys were dropped inside! Of course, there were no extra keys, and no way to open the trunk or get inside it. We missed our flight, and got the worst seats on the next flight where it was real loud. At least we made it to our destination, and we eventually got a refund for our room, after writing two letters to the hotel (we stayed there just so we wouldn't miss our flight)!

    By Betty Tropp on January 16, 2012 5:13 PM

    I and my two daughters took a Spiritual Journey to France and Italy last October. We visited and photographed so many beautiful churches and cathedrals and basilicas. One of my regrets was that i was so underdressed that I couldn't really enjoy the outdoors (it was pretty chilly in France and only slightly warmer in Italy). I didn't anticipate all the hills and walking so I missed a few of the sites (especially in Paris) that i really wanted to visit, since my legs just couldn't make it.
    One more thing--next time i will purchase Euros before i leave the US. I had a hard time with my credit card and had to borrow some Euros from my new friends until my ATM card worked!! I want to go back to my favorite place, Siena, Italy. Very Happy memories! However, I doubt that they have a BW there!!!

    By Brenda H. Talley on January 16, 2012 5:17 PM

    I had an enjoyable vacation last year. We went to Pigeon Forge TN and we visited Dollywood once again. This has been our destination for the last few years and it is beautiful country, I'm not complaining. But I think I'm ready for something different. Perhaps the beach, Branson, I really don't know...I love just traveling (road trips) and seeing parts of the country that I've never seen before. Colorado is beautiful...Perhaps this year will be different (in a good way) and longer (we usually take two or three mini vacations, you pack, you go, you stay for a couple of days, return home and unpack)!

    By Patricia Palomino on January 16, 2012 5:27 PM

    My travel regret? After saving $10 000.00, I micro-planned an excursion through Italy and Greece for 2011. However, those countries were going through turmoil and we decided to stay in canada. I still hope to use the plan maybe in 2012.

    By Bill Dyer on January 16, 2012 5:51 PM

    My wife and our two Jack Russells, Annie and Teddy, are heading to Georgia for February. We will be staying at Best Westerns along the way that are pet friendly.

    My daughter and myself just spent a week staying at the Best Western Stovall hotel in Anaheim. We had such a great time, room was awsome and soooo clean, staff was great and took care of us quite nicely. But we are looking at taking a trip to somewhere a bit hotter in November 2012....somewhere like Mexico perhaps.....a 250 dollar gift card would sure help us with our plans.....Thanks Best Western for making my last 3 holidays great ones!!

    By Danielle Thomas on January 16, 2012 6:51 PM

    My travel resolution for this year is to go to at least 2 European countires. Now that I'm getting a new camera, I want to take advantage and take many more scenic pictures!

    By Mary on January 16, 2012 7:35 PM

    My 2011 regret is that during the mini-vacation my husband and I took in Colorado Springs, we didn't stay at a Best Western. We were blinded by the "good deal" we got through DoubleTree by Hilton and didn't get the great service we would have gotten through Best Western! For 2012, we are cruising to the Bahamas late in the year and leaving from Miami so are planning on taking some extra days and explore Miami beforehand.

    By Janice Carleton on January 16, 2012 7:36 PM

    I would be very happy to stay anywhere there is a Best Western. had the opportunity to stay in a couple Best Westerns and they have more than met our expectations. Thank you Best Western.

    Had a vacation planned to Hawaii but had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, maybe this year the trip to the Islands in the Pacific will become a reality. Also, was working in Montana and wanted to venture over to South Dakota, namely Mt. Rushmore, you know to see the Stone Mason, Our first President of The United States of America, but due to time constraints & management demands, it was impossible....maybe this will be the year of the Rock Visit.

Rushmore, you know to see the Stone Mason, Our first President of The United States of America, but due to time constraints & management demands, it was impossible....maybe this will be the year of the Rock Visit.

    I regret that I didn't go to Asia in 2011. In 2012 I will go to Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam!

    By Wanda on January 17, 2012 12:58 AM

    Our goal this year is to take two week long vacations! I miss that so I hope this is the year. We have the first one planned already for Yellowstone. I would like to just get on the motorcycle and ride away for a week! Where ever we end us is fine! Just get away and relax.

    By Wendy on January 17, 2012 2:54 AM

    We live in Georgia and our son son is playing baseball in Canada this summer. We plan on driving up to see him and are looking for Best Westerns to stay at along the way. Wish us luck!!

    My one regret last year in my travels was that I signed up to be a Best Western member too late. I took a road trip to Astoria from Eugene and did not sign up until after I got home. As a result, I didn't get my free night until my travels were over. I would have loved to stay at a Best Western in Astoria longer than I did.

    My hope/resolution for the new year is to travel more, earn more points and use Best Western whenever I can. I plan to take a trip to the coast and to Seattle at least once this year!

    I'm hoping to be able to go somewhere nice with my wife for our 25th wedding anniversary.

    2011 was a hectic year filled with unexpected events for my family. I hope 2012 will be better and that we'll have a chance to take a relaxing vacation somewhere.

    Last October, my husband and I flew from Phoenix to Orlando to take a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Port Canaveral. I had made all the travel plans, and we were supposed to be celebrating both our 25th Wedding Anniversary and his 50th birthday, during the week of my birthday. We rented a car, and drove to the Port. Unbeknowest to me, (my fault, tho) his passport was expired. Although we spent over 4 hours pleading with the authorities there, they refused to allow us on the ship. And we were out over $800.00. (we were refunded only our taxes). Other people were in the same position, but we were the only ones unable to board; you see he was born in Illinois, and it was Columbus Day...a state holiday when the birth records offices are closed. Our trip was ruined, despite my husband's assurance that it was just wonderful to be alone with me. We ended up staying in a cheap hotel, with very little money to spend, and to add insult to injury; the cable was out in the hotel so he couldn't even watch his beloved Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. I need a do-over, to take my wonderful husband on a cruise...but next time, I'll make sure all of our paperwork is in order!!

    Looking back on 2011 I regret that my family was not able to go to visit my husband's mom and dad in Northern Wisconsin. My children love spending time at Grandma and Grandpa's house on the lake, but because of finances, we just couldn't do the summer trip to the midwest. We did get to see them in the fall when they headed out east with some of their friends, so for that I am glad. When my in-laws returned home it was discovered that my father-in-law has kidney cancer. He has come through his surgery well and will be starting more treatment soon. My hope and desire for 2012 is that my father in law will get well and that my children will be able to spend another summer at the lake with their Grandpa.

    By Shellie on January 17, 2012 3:01 PM

    My travel regret of 2011 was a trip to LA. I stayed in an overpriced (unnamed hotel) that had mold growing in the bathroom and no breakfast restaurant. This year I am planning a fun summer trip with the family to the Smokey Mountains.

    By Phyllis Skoglund on January 17, 2012 3:03 PM

    I want my daughter and her family to stay at the Best Western by Weeki Wachee State park. Her and her hubby only stayed with me a day for my birthday. Although I live nearby Weeki Wachee I see this Best Western location as best for them while they visit the park..

    By Pickell on January 17, 2012 7:07 PM

    My 2012 resolution is to explore more of the continental United States. Places that pique my interest include Savanah, Georgia (old world charm); Datona Beach, Florida (sea turtles); Biloxi, Mississippi (bayous), Louisville, Kentucky (horse derby), Black Hills of South Dakota (Mount Rushmore, etc). So many places, so little time :)

    By kristine james on January 17, 2012 7:09 PM

    I would like to travel this year to Georgia and Florida to visit with military friends and family.

    I would have liked to visit Vegas or NYC, hopefully in 2012 I can.

    In 2012 I would love to visit the Canadian Rockies. I grew up with the Rockies as a view from our living room window and from this, they have been apart of my ideal landscape. I would love to take my family and breathe the fresh mountain air again.

    By Carolyn (Karo) Navarro on January 17, 2012 8:41 PM

    I didn't get to go to Vegas in 2010 and 2011 so I hope ot go in 2012!

    By Bill M. on January 17, 2012 8:58 PM

    We would like to go to California in 2012 as we have never been there.We have stayed in Best-Western before and they are a super hotel chain.Very nice rooms and super service.Would be nice to get a $250.00 Hotel credit. Sure would cut the expences.

    Thank You

    I should have reserved a room at the Best Western, but forgot this very important bfeature & ended out having to sleep on a bench at an airport instead. Sure, this was many years ago, but I still regret it as if it were this very day!

    My Travel Resolution for 2012 is to travel to every location where my up and coming professional performer (dancer/singer/actor) daughter gets a performing 'gig'! So far, that's near Chicago, IL and Phoenix, AZ for 2012! Last year we traveled to Mill Hall, PA and Ocean City, NJ for her shows. We try and add some time to our travels and explore the surrounding areas, seeing as many attractions and sights as possible. For instance, we saw an old, abandoned coal mine and also enjoyed the Boardwalk of Ocean City as well as a day's stint in Atlantic City, 'just up the road'! Its almost like throwing a dart at a map; we never know where she - and we - will end up next!

    My regret is that I did not travel. I intend to go somewhere this year and a $250 BW travel card sure would help!

    By Glenn Richardson on January 18, 2012 7:03 AM

    My 2011 travel regret was a trip to Tacoma Washington. My friends and I planned a great evening of dinner, comedy and fun back at our hotel afterwards. It would have been a great time, except when we arrived at the hotel, my girlfriend was struck by the elevator door. After it hit her during her entry to the elevator, it trapped her at the opening, not allowing her to move and bruising her arm. I had to forcibly push the doors open and release her. The really disappointing part is, four months later the management will not follow through with their promises, has not credited anything on my credit card, and for months will not return any of my numerous phone calls. I have even shown up to talk to them about this and at 2pm on a Friday, there was no management available. Sadly, the corporation that owns this hotel will not do anything either, stating that each hotel is managed independently.
    I truly regret staying at The Tacoma Dome Best Western and don't suggest any stay there until management is replaced! In 2012 I look forward to traveling to many wonderful cities in 2012, I will just avoid this hotel and question the corporate position on customer service.

    Regretfully,
    Glenn Richardson

    By Mike B on January 18, 2012 8:56 AM

    We are overjoyed with our first ever family trip that requires a flight over 1 hour. We are taking our 6 year old daughter to Disneyland! It will be the first time for all of us and we're not entirely sure who's more excited. Every morning, we wake up and count the days down on the calendar!

    By Elizabeth H. Allison on January 18, 2012 11:12 AM

    Mt. Rushmore is so intriguing. From all the photos that I have seen, it appears to be a great place to visit. I would love to stay in a Best Western near the huge mountain of Presidents. Last year was too hectic for me to travel to Mt. Rushmore. This year would be a great time to catch the view.

This year we are planning a visit to the Land of OZ. My daughter is currently living just outside of Brisbane and I'm working very hard at enroling as many BW guests as I can in the Best Western Rewards program so that I can earn my incentive points and this will then cover our accommodation costs for our Australia trip.

We are going to Cali again this year for a week and this time WILL make Disneyland a must-see destinatiion. We will be staying at a Best Western also!!!

My wife has not been to Quebec and if we can do it would like to go as far at the maritimes. We have friends who have been to the maritimes and say it is awesome to visit the east coast. We love staying at best westerns and winning a gift card would make taking the trip a bit easier.

    This year I plan to drive from AZ to WI to see my father and surprise him for his birthday, we found out he has Pancreas Cancer so I need to be there this year and every year I have. I plan to take my oldest daughter (20) and her daughter (2) along with my youngest daughter (18 months) on this road trip. GOD HELP ME I know he will be so happy to see us all. The gift card will surely help us to be able to afford to stop and rest and play a bit in between. Seems like a better idea then trying to drive straight thru. Pick us please Pick us! I will be forever grateful.

    My biggest regret in 2011 was not staying at the BEST WESTERN Park View Hotel in Winter Haven, Florida. It would have been lovely to avoid the drive back to Orlando after spending a fun filled day at Legoland! Fortunately, Legoland or the Park View are not going anywhere so we will surely have a chance to head back.

Now I want to go back and make it right. Someday....

    I'm going to go back to San Francisco, I haven't been there since 1977!

    I'll go anywhere that's not illegal, immoral or fattening and twitter my opinion.

    Our family (14 of us) are travelling to Fort Lauderdale, Florida this year to spend time at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn before and after we take a cruise to the Caribbean. We are looking forward to celebrating our parents' 50th Anniversary! Let the good times roll!

    By Jen Lloyd on January 21, 2012 5:10 AM

    I wish I had a chance to travel somewhere warm in 2011. Didn't happen! We are making up for it though in 2012! We are booked in with Best Western in FLA...our favourite spot for fun in the sun! Thanks B.W.!

    I went to Hawaii in 2011 and wanted to take an helicopter tour over Kuaui but I didn't have enough time....I still regret it!
    For 2012, I want to go to NY to see a football game and a hckey game

    By Joyce Dalessi on January 21, 2012 12:08 PM

    Unexpected medical issues meant no travel after March 2011.. Would love to go to Seattle this year to visit my son and his family.

    By Pam on January 21, 2012 12:11 PM

    I'm planning a trip to Ohio to see my son and his family. I haven't seen him since he returned from duty in Iraq 2 yrs ago. Will see my granddaughter for the first time also.

    By Crystal on January 21, 2012 1:24 PM

    I would love to take my family on a vaction that we really have not been able to do. Would like to take them to the grand canyon, mt. rushmore, or to the east coast and see the reinactment of the civil war.

    I always wanted to see New England in the fall.

    By Paul on January 21, 2012 3:20 PM

    I missed an opportunity to attend a family reunion in California with attendees from my home country Sweden because of work commitments. Fortunately I will be traveling to Sweden this summer and hopefully will be able to visit with some of my distant relatives during the trip. My regret is not doing so earlier.

    I regret that I didn't take the time and effort to take the ferry and train from Amalfi to Paestum when I was in Italy last spring.

    By Cathryn on January 22, 2012 1:24 AM

    I would love to travel anywhere so that I could take my almost 10 yr old daughter on her first vacation. It could be as simple as a weekend at Hersheypark. Just something where she can pack her bags and feel like a "big girl".

    By veronique langlois on January 22, 2012 6:10 AM

    My resolution for 2012 travel is to take the time to go often with the children on vacation even if just a weekend of two days, it feels good to take time with family

    By Trina on January 22, 2012 7:08 AM

    Northwest Territories....the pictures and culture is breath taking

    By Lisa Morgan on January 22, 2012 11:20 AM

    By Craig Miller on January 22, 2012 12:35 PM

    Chicago in June with the boys to catch some baseball and enjoy the city. Looking forward to it.

    By Corinna Boychuk on January 22, 2012 12:36 PM

    Time flies and my resolution in 2012 is to get my whole family (4 daughters and one granddaughter) together for a caribbean getaway before everyone is all grown and gone off into the next phase of their lives... and who knows when they would be able to afford to go? I have been saving for over a year

    By Karen Scott on January 22, 2012 12:42 PM

    My husband and I would love to go to San Francisco and then drive up through wine country in California, Oregon, and Washington. That would be a perfect trip!

    By Sylvia Mallon on January 22, 2012 12:48 PM

    I would love to get out to San Diego to see my best friend! We have always lived in different states, but we always keep in touch. She comes to visit me at least once a year but I would love to finally go visit her this year! Also, she has not yet met my 10 month old daughter, so I want to make sure that she gets to meet her! It would mean a lot to me because my friend is like a sister to me!

    By Karissa on January 22, 2012 12:57 PM

    I would like to travel to Niagara Falls!

    By Cathy on January 22, 2012 12:58 PM

    I would like to take an ancestry trails type trip, driving through many parts of Mississippi to see where many of my ancestors lived, to see if their homes are still there, to take photographs, to visit the courthouses. This kind of trip gets put on the back burner when we use our time and money for more fun family vacations (can't say I blame my family!), but I'd love to do this one day!

    By Karissa on January 22, 2012 1:00 PM

    Niagara Falls please! I've only seen it by air, would love to see it in person ;-)

    By Chanda McFarland on January 22, 2012 1:00 PM

    My daughter will turn 21 this year and we are taking many of our family members and going to Vegas. I would use this gift certificate for this trip and we would all have a great time and have more money to throw around Vegas. My daughter can't wait to go and this would definitely make her birthday extra special!

    By Colleen Alburger on January 22, 2012 1:15 PM

    I would like to visit Northern Virginia coastline. My regrets that I did not travel more during 2011, but I intend on doing so in 2012.

    By Mea Harris on January 22, 2012 1:16 PM

    Hopefully in 2012 I'll be able to save money and go to Tahiti to see where I was born I was adopted when I was 3 months and have never been there and would like to go see it. It would be amazing.

    I did not get to Quebec City in 2011 and would really like to visit there this year. It is a city rich in culture and history. There are also two very nice Best Westerns that we could stay at when in Quebec City.

    By Cyrena Pettit on January 22, 2012 1:19 PM

    I have to visit New York this year. It's been something I've always dreamt of doing but just haven't been able to swing it...If I'm lucky, maybe this year I'll get to see the ball drop in Times Square!

    By Lisa on January 22, 2012 1:19 PM

    On the way back from visiting my parents in Florida we had plans to stop in Chattanooga, TN for a day or two, but a tornado went through the city the same day we were to arrive, so we just went home.

    By Karin on January 22, 2012 1:19 PM

    The beach, didn't make it last year and now feel the need for some salt air and hear the beach sounds.

    By Aprille Williamson on January 22, 2012 1:19 PM

    I would love to go back home to visit with family that I haven't seen in years. In todays economy it is hard to afford such trips

    By Susan Dobie on January 22, 2012 1:20 PM

    In 2011 we wanted to get to Montana to visit family but we had to move to a new state for a job transfer and things just didn't work out. We hope 2012 is going to be our year to head back home. My in-laws have about 5 cases of wine waiting for us that we really need to pick up! More importantly, though... my husband really needs to see his dad!

    By Lynn Voss on January 22, 2012 1:20 PM

    After raising my two sons solo for 20 yrs I would love to treat myself to a Santa Fe, New Mexico holiday weekend and visit the Spanish Market. I have a good friend there and it would be nice visit the area and have her show me around town. I'm starting a new era in my life.

    By Laurel Simmons on January 22, 2012 1:20 PM

    I'd love to go anywhere warm and tropical!

    By Steven on January 22, 2012 1:21 PM

    My biggest regret is that we didn't get to take a full family vacation this year due to finances. Our oldest son is going away to college in the fall of 2012 and we have always wanted to take them to San Francisco where their Father and I spent our first year of marriage.

    By Donna Bitting on January 22, 2012 1:22 PM

    I would love to go to any of these places this year, they are all on my bucket list.
    Spain, UK, China, Mediterranean, Macchu Piccu, Easter Island and New Zealand.

    By Sarah M. on January 22, 2012 1:28 PM

    My biggest travel regret(s) from last year is that the weather never cooperated! We booked a trip to Pensacola for Labor Day weekend, staying at the beautiful Portofino resort, but a huge storm moved into the area right beforehand. We might have made it there, but would have been stuck inside the whole time and then not be able to get back home due to flooding. So, we made a last-minute reservation for South Padre Island. No rain there, but because of the storm in the gulf, the ocean was saturated with baby jellyfish larvae that prevented us from being able to enjoy the water without being stung all over! Then, we flew to NM for Christmas. We wanted a white Christmas and got it seven-fold. First my sister's gas pipe developed a leak and could not be repaired for a week due to the highways being closed, so we (almost) froze to death in her home without heat. Then a water pipe burst and leaked UNDER her house, so we also went two days without running water (no toilet, no showers, etc.) My brother-in-law had to dig about 6 feet into the frozen ground to get to it. Because the highways were closed, we could not go skiing like we planned, either. Oh, well, the main thing is that we spent a lot of close time bonding as a family. This year I hope to take an awesome trip to California as my daughter is a captain on her drill team and they get to dance at DisneyLand and The Edge studio! Also plan to see some long-missed cousins and their new wives while we are there!

    By Lynn Voss on January 22, 2012 1:29 PM

    I frequently travel to the Oregon coast, and I imagine I will continue to do so. I also travel to Arizona and Las Vegas quite a bit. This year I would like to include a trip up north. Perhaps just to Seattle or Tacoma, but maybe also on up into Canada. I love to go on road trips and weekend excursions. Would be nice to have a travel partner, though.

    By S. Montague on January 22, 2012 1:35 PM

    A group of 6 of us will be riding our Harley Davidsons from Ontario, Canada to New Orleans. This is somewhere we have all wanted to visit (as well as the other cities and towns along the way) We feel that by visiting areas that have been hit by natural disaster or affected by the downward US economy, we will in a small way contribute to rebuilding the economy by spending our money on food, souvenirs, hotels, etc. We have visited the US several times in the past few years and will continue to do so as there is so much to see!!!!

    By Justin on January 22, 2012 1:36 PM

    By Marion Cuyler on January 22, 2012 1:46 PM

    My regret is I didn't have enough money to travel more. My travel resolution would be to go to the mountains of TN, and wake up to the sounds of nature and not the sound of an alarm clock!
    I already have a trip planned for the family to go to Disney World in May, so much has happened this past year that made me realize that life truly is too short, and we must cherish every moment we have and ENJOY it while we have it!

He lives in the LA area so we will start there, but would love to drive up towards Yosemite National Park as well! Hope everyone has safe travels and makes many wonderful memories!

    We are traveling from southeastern Alberta to the beautiful Vancouver Island this June and have already booked our Best Western Hotel (Best Western Plus Inner Harbour - Victoria BC) for 4 nights. We are so excited! I have only been to Victoria once, as a child, and my spouse has never been. We are taking our two children to enjoy the Canada Day fireworks over the harbour. What a great time to go! Good luck to everyone in the contest! I hope that everyone's travel dreams come true this year :)

    I really missed camping in the Eastern Sierras last summer. We've been doing it yearly since I was born (62 years ago). I could camp and fish every day for the rest of my life. It's just so serene being in the mountains with nature, fresh air, wild animals and the steady sound of a creek nearby. I even had a trout tattooed on my right shoulder in memory of my late father. But we are, hopefully, going to make it up there again this year with all my family (kids, grandkids, Mom, sister & her family, son & his family, and friends) this summer. But we love the beach too and the Best Western in Carpinteria, CA is one of the best places we have EVER stayed. Been there twice in the past several years and would be wonderful to take my mother there again!

    Frankfurt, Germany. My husband and I hope to make a long awaited trip here in the next 2-3 yrs, would be lovely to go sooner than we hope, but anytime will be wonderful! I am mostly German, have a great interest in German royal history and there is so much in the Frankfurt area I want to see.

    My travel regret is not making it to Paradise, Mi for the best Fourth of July celebration! I had my reservations at the Best Western, but had to cancel due to a death in the family. My resolution for this year is to make and keep a reservation for the 4th at Paradise, MI.

    By Laurie A on January 22, 2012 3:53 PM

    My biggest regret is that my husband and I did not get to go on a trip for our thirtieth wedding anniversary. We had talked about it for years but could not go due to a death in the family and the cost of traveling back to visit my family member in the hospital and then for his funeral a couple weeks later. I would like it if our family could take a trip this year, possibly to Yellowstone.

    By cindy b on January 22, 2012 3:54 PM

    I'm hoping to make it to Key Largo, hopefully soon! :)

    Had plans to travel to Japan but was unable to go because of the great disaster of 2011. Felt so sorry for those wonderful people and our prayers went out to them. Still hoping to make a trip to Japan in 2012. We just love that country and the people of Jaapan.

    By suzanne monteiro on January 22, 2012 4:07 PM

    I would love to take my 9-year-old son anywhere. We don't really get to go on vacactoions due to financial restrictions. I want to show him other parts of the country. I would love to take him to New York City or the Grand Canyon!

    By Amanda F on January 22, 2012 4:08 PM

    Jackson Hole, WY- I hope to take a trip here with my family in 2012. My dad recently had heart surgery, and you learn that life is precious after events such as this. I hope to take time to travel and spend time with family in 2012!

    By Charles R Gorman on January 22, 2012 4:09 PM

    My wife and I had planned a trip to Japan, but due to the tsunami disaster we were unable to go. Our prayers went out to the wonderful people of Japan. We are hoping to visit that beautiful country in 2012.

    By Jason Field on January 22, 2012 4:16 PM

    I plan on taking my nephew on a good trip this year. I plan on driving 3 days to Yellowstone National Park; showing him the sites along the way. Then spend a couple days there before driving to Rocky Mountain National Park for a couple more days before the long drive home.

    By Heather McFarland on January 22, 2012 4:19 PM

    My regret is not traveling. My resolution for 2012 is to make as many memories with my family as possible through our trips.

    Would like to go back to Las Vegas, went there on my honeymoon in 1978.

    By Melanie Gorman on January 22, 2012 4:34 PM

    My fantastic husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in 2011. Unfortunately, we couldn't go on a cruise, stay at a spiffy Best Western, or even have a party. We did, however, go to my mom's and spent a week. Wow! How exciting was THAT!? We told each other we would spend the entire year celebrating that landmark 50th anniversary and do some traveling all year. So far, we have been unable to afford to do any of it. The atrocious economy sucked up my husband's pension in 2008 and we have been on an uphill battle since then. We are beginning to see light at the far end oif the tunnel, but not enough to slip in a vacation! Good luck to everyone, but ESPECIALLY to us!!!

    By Jennifer Greencorn on January 22, 2012 4:37 PM

    No travel regrets for 2011, I love to travel. Drove to New York and flew to Jamaica. Planning to fly to Rivera Maya and drive to Niagra Falls in 2012.

    By Cheryl on January 22, 2012 4:41 PM

    For three years now I have been planning a trip to Kamiah, ID, and northern Montana and at the end of each year I keep telling myself next year. Each time I set aside the funds for the trip either the car breaks down or the home needs repaired.
    It would be great to go.

    By Kerri on January 22, 2012 4:42 PM

    We really want to go back to Germany this year for my husband's college graduation present. We weren't able to go there this year due to him being in school and we miss our German neighbors tons!

    By Cheryl on January 22, 2012 4:45 PM

    For three years I have been wanting to visit Kamiah, ID and for three year I have not been able to. At the end of the year I keep telling myself "next year". But next year has not arrived yet.
    It would be great to visit there.

    By Susan Fine on January 22, 2012 5:30 PM

    For 2012 I would like to have a walking vacation thru Texas and New Mexico...stopping in various cities, staying at Best Western and doing volkswalks every day.

    By Susan Fine on January 22, 2012 5:33 PM

    In 2012 I want to walk thru New Mexico one week, stopping in various cities, staying at Best Western,and enjoying several volkswalks.

    I don't want much! I just want to go back to Ocean City, MD for a couple of days. I googled and there is a Best Western in Ocean City, MD :) My husband really wants us to pay down/off our credit cards and unless we do that - no summer vacation this year for us!

    By Joan White on January 22, 2012 7:43 PM

    I was supposed to leave yesterday going down to N.O. to hop on the Carnival Cruise for a week. But took my ex back to court and guess what...court landed on a time that caused me to cancel my trip. He owes thousands in back alimony and the judge ordered him to pay all by Feb. 15 or report to jail on the 16th at 8 AM. Just messed my week off to the wild blue yonder because there was about 60 going to have a blst down in Jamaica and other parts down there. Makes me sick.....but maybe one day there'll be another vacation somewhere. This would have been the first one in ten years and my heart was set to go.

    By Joan White on January 22, 2012 7:48 PM

    I was supposed to go to NO yesterday to go on the Carnival Cruise. Taking the ex back to court for thousands in back alimony caused me to cancel. There was about 60 going and how I wish I could have sailed tonight!!!!

    I regret that I did not go skiing

    By Julie A on January 22, 2012 9:50 PM

    My first choice would be to Florida or California to go to the beach. Also like to go to Texas to visit family.

    By Sandy Crane on January 22, 2012 11:43 PM

    I would love to take my family to California or Florida -- Disney and Universal Studios...and the Lego Park. Our two boys would love it! Las Vegas would be my next pick, because we could have lots of fun with the kids there too. But, if we couldn't go there...I would settle for somewhere in my own state...St. George, UT or perhaps Bear Lake.

    By Sandy Crane on January 22, 2012 11:49 PM

    I would love to go to any of the following -- in this order. We haven't been anywhere in a while!

    Disney World, Universal Studios - Florida
    Disneyland, Sea World, Universal Studios, & Legoland - California
    Tuscon, Arizona
    Kansas City, Missouri
    Las Vegas, NV
    Denver, Colorado
    Washington DC
    Austin, TX
    And, if I couldn't go to any of these....
    St. George Utah
    Moab, Utah
    Bear Lake, Utah/Idaho

    By Linda Hays on January 23, 2012 5:55 AM

    I would like to travel to several places this year. Florida to see my oldest son and his new family. Utah to see my daughter and her family and my youngest son is in college there also. Washington to see my other son and his family. Arizona to see another son who is returning from being stationed in England. And hopefully to his wedding in California next fall. And last but not least to Massachusetts to visit another son who is returning from Afghanistan.

    By Carla on January 23, 2012 5:57 AM

    Travel regret for 2011 - not having gone anywhere! The year flew by, but we didn't fly out for a family vacation. 2012 will have to be the year to change that.

    By Laurie on January 23, 2012 6:02 AM

    We could not travel to Florida last year because of health reasons. I am so looking forward to our tour of Florida again.We have many friends in Florida and I love the many places we visit while we are there.Knowing that we have a safe and comfortable Best Western to stay at is great. We always stay in Whythville Sarasota, Jacksonville, Naples. There are best Western everyone at a reasonable price and very clean.It's a great get away for us and my husband enjoys the driving.

    By BMW HPDE inst. on January 23, 2012 6:04 AM

    I am planning on traveling to Mid-Ohio race track for the BMW CCA O'fest in 2012. I have never driven on that track BUT its on my bucket list of race tracks to drive and instruct on. This will be my 16th race track I have driven on. Looking forward to learning a new track layout. Mid-Ohio is in Lexington Ohio. The 2 closest Best Western hotels are:
    Best Western 3991 County Road 172, Mt. Gilead (419) 768-2378

    Want to go somewhere I have never been, so I am keeping a close eye on those random specials.

    By Grandma Carol on January 23, 2012 6:14 AM

    My grandson(10) would like to go to Florida this summer and swim with the dolphins.
    In the last three years we have drove to: Washington DC, Pacific Ocean (WA,OR), and Niagra Falls. We definitely enjoy traveling together. It is also an educational experience that he will never get in books or via the television or other media.
    Two years ago, he also learned how to read and use maps....you know those grandmas, they often need co-pilot help when they are driving!!

    By Dee Black on January 23, 2012 6:15 AM

    I would like to travel to Cincinnati to visit my son at college. He is farther away not than ever. And I miss him.

    By Joan Salamano on January 23, 2012 6:23 AM

    We are planning to travel to the Northeast this year. Will tour New England states, New York (including Niagara Falls, which I have always wanted to see), and other surrounding states. We visited Washington, D.C. about 30 years ago and look forward to seeing it again. Arlington National Cemetery is a special place since two close relatives are buried there. Will also tour West Point Academy and University of Notre Dame. We love to take driving trips to see how small town and big city people live all over America!

    By Rebecca on January 23, 2012 6:34 AM

    I plan to travel the original 13 colonies with my kids this Summer. I regret traveling only when I HAVE to and not when I want to. I want my children to see every state in the US and understand how we got to where we are :-)

    By Denise Griffin on January 23, 2012 6:45 AM

    My husband finally retired last year and I am ready to see the sites. My dream is to go to Cancun and go snorkeling, go to Hawaii to see the pineapple plantations, and beautiful New York to visit the Ground Zero Monument. Among these 3 big trips, there would also be lots of short jaunts to Austin, TX., New Mexico, and Colorado! I want to see it ALL!!!!

    By S.Carlson on January 23, 2012 6:53 AM

    I want to see New York at the holidays. My son lives there now so I cant wait to see The Big Apple.

    Well, I went on a cruise in 2011 which was awesome! This year I would love to go to Cuba. I hear its a great place for a holiday!

    By Tammy on January 23, 2012 7:10 AM

    Like most Canadians, we crave some heat in the winter so we hope to drive South into the states over Easter to somewhere warm.

    By Jan on January 23, 2012 7:11 AM

    We are planning to travel in Italy this fall for my husbands seventieth birthday. We travel independently, so will be staying in Best Western's when we can.? With this money I could surprise him with a day of fun activities and Italian gifts.

    Went to Page, Arizona last year but didn't get to Bryce Canyon. This year......?

    By Claudia on January 23, 2012 7:31 AM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to return to the beautiful Southwest Florida coast. I visited last year and loved it so much I'm hoping to relocate there. My stay at the Best Western Inn and Suites in Naples in 2011 was fabulous, and I'm looking forward to a return trip this year so I can search for permanent housing in the area. I'd also love to travel up the coast and visit the spectacular Siesta Key beaches in Sarasota this trip. Winning a $250 Best Western travel card would really help make this dream trip come true!

    By Pam on January 23, 2012 7:36 AM

    I regret taking my family on a trip to Myrtle Beach,S.C. Last year because of my back surgery I had to have. So I am hoping on taking them this year. That would be wonderful.Some of my family have never been on a beach so it would be nice for them to see it.

    By paul k mn on January 23, 2012 7:50 AM

    My family in England are getting on in years and I haven't been back in quite a few years and what better time to go than when the Olympics are there.

    By Rhonda on January 23, 2012 8:39 AM

    We had to postpone travel plans to to the east coast for various reasons. This summer we plan to fly to the northern part of the US and travel along the coast all the way to Florida and then fly back to the NW. There is SO MUCH to see in the US and lots of Best Westerns along the way!

    By glenda zander on January 23, 2012 8:41 AM

    I really wanted to take my one sister who lived in Vernon BC to New Brunswick to see our youngest sister and her husband for a holiday. We were not able to go because of one thing and then another thing. We had a problem with my work and then had a problem with my sister who lived in Vernon's health. So we were not able to go. so we then started to plan the trip for the summer of 2012 thinking that we had lots of time to do so. Well our sister who lived in Vernon passed away just 2 days after christmas and so now the trip has been called off. I wish that there was a way bring back time.

    By Brittany on January 23, 2012 8:42 AM

    My biggest travel regret of 2011 would be not going to the beach with my son. I am a single mother and my son is now 5 years old and has never been to the beach. We would love to go to Myrtle Beach, SC this year!

    By tamara on January 23, 2012 8:42 AM

    It's time to visit Yellowstone Park again. It's been about 10 years since I've been there. My resolution is to see the local sites in my own state.

    By RENEE WHITE on January 23, 2012 8:50 AM

    I would love to travel anywhere with my husband - our anniversary is february 17th - we have never been on an annivesary trip - we have four kids and never take time (due to money) for ourselves. a 250.00 best western card would be a blessing!!

    By Karen Morris on January 23, 2012 9:06 AM

    I would love to go to my husband's family reunion in Westville, Nova Scotia located next door to New Glasgow. It has been a long time since I've seen everyone and every year I wish we had enough money to go back for a visit.

    By Deborah Sigrist on January 23, 2012 9:07 AM

    My travel regret from 2011 is where I didn't go. And that is to visit my daughter in Waupaca,Wisconsin. She is my only daughter and I usually only see her once a year.

    By Virginia Wentzel on January 23, 2012 9:09 AM

    Nothing better than a Best Western in Europe. I have wanted to go to Scottland and the UK,Cornwall penisula. I know there are wonderful Best Western hotels in both places. My daughter and her 3 girls live in the UK. I have read Roseamound Plitcher and watch Doc Martin and in these places there is heavenly scenery and charming people. A dream of mine, to visit.

    By Cynthia F on January 23, 2012 9:45 AM

    My travel resolution for 2012 is to see more of my home state by taking more short, weekend getaway trips.

    By Billy Auman on January 23, 2012 9:47 AM

    Regrets that we didn't take the trip to Niagara Falls in 2011. My wife and I have wanted to visit the Falls all of our married life, but have not made the journey. We have been married 46 years this year. Maybe this is the year!

    Another regret...we let a voucher expire for a free night stay at Best Western.
    This we had earned by staying at Best Westerns while visiting our son who lives in another state.

    By Kathy Herioux on January 23, 2012 9:53 AM

    Will use the card to finally take our honeymoon to Washington DC

    By Pam Foss on January 23, 2012 9:54 AM

    My biggest regret of 2011 is not being able to go to Maui to get married like I had hoped. My fiance and I have been waiting for my divorce to be finalized so that we can get married. I am looking forward to having the divorce finalized in 2012 and going to Maui to get married, or at least for our honey moon, so that we can finally begin our new lives together. :)

    By LaFonda Lobmeyer on January 23, 2012 9:55 AM

    Hi, My husband & I will celebrate our 40th anniversary this year. I would love to take him to Alaska, or Australia, but know it can be expensive. The US has beautiful places also..........Utah, or Montana, or back East, would also be amazing..........we have friends whom love Grand Teton area. We wanted to go to MN to visit friends, but didn't do that do to work obligations. So, that would be nice as well............Have a great New Year!! LOL

    My husband and I had plans to go to the east coast of Canada, unfortunately he fell ill and I will hope to do this trip in his honor. We had made arrangements for oxygen and kidney dialysis so it is was not an easy trip to plan.

    Plans to go to Florida fell apart for 2011 with my husband being assigned to a major project at work and also having a heart procedure. I am hopeful that 2012 will bring the opportunity for him to rest and have a vacation.

    In January of 2011 I won a sweepstakes consisting of a free resort stay in Florida, which was awesome since I've never won anything. However, due to work commitments I couldn't use the voucher which ended up expiring at the end of 2011... heartbreaking ... especially for my daughter ....

    Since we retired ten years ago, we have tried to visit as many different states as we possibility can. We only get to go for three weeks a year. We still have a lot to go and hope to put a dent in it in 2012. We try and stay at as many BW's as we can. We are doing this since we did not have a honeymoon since we were married the day after President Kennedy was murdered in November of 1963. We are trying to build up our points so we can have a great vacation in Hawaii next year for our 50th wedding anniversary.

    I would like to go back to the Twin Cities to see my daughter. I traveled out with her when she was looking for a place to live before she moved, but we didn't have time then to see anything. We stayed in a really cool BW that was a converted train repair facility. Really nice!

    By Christina Peoples on January 23, 2012 12:46 PM

    We've promised our children every year for the past 3 years that we would travel somewhere there is snow. Living in Arizona, we don't see too much of it and with work schedules and the economy, we haven't been able to make it. We are doing our absolute best to make it up north this year and let our children see real snow for the first time! That is one of our biggest travel resolutions for the year:)

    We've promised our children for the past 3 years that we would go somewhere there is snow. Living in Arizona we don't see too much of it and due to work schedules and the economy, we haven't been able to make the trip yet. But, we are really trying to figure it out this year. So, our biggest travel resolution for this year is to make it up north and let our children see real snow for the first time!

    By Mary L on January 23, 2012 1:25 PM

    We really wanted to get to a NASCAR race last year so we really want to get to a race in 2012. Thinking about either the Charlotte races in May or the Bristol race in August. We also wanted to go back and stay at the Best Western in Myrtle Beach so will try again either this year or next to get back there again.

    We traveled 15,750 miles last summer around the US and Canada. We hit all four corners of the country and stayed in Best Western Hotels or with friends and relatives. The one regret out of the trip was staying in a competitor when we failed to book ahead and the Best Western was full. We ultimately stayed in a Truck Stop in Montana. Missed you BW people big time.

    We're on the road again and already have eight nights booked for two different trips. (we learned our lesson)

    I always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon with my daughters. I want to stare over the north and south rims at sunrise and sunset and show them how grand our land is. There is so much of America that most Americans don't see that as a military veteran, I feel obligated to share with my family those things that my husband and I(and so other Americans) defended.

    1/23/2012: I really wanted to see where they make Black Hills Gold Jewelry, in Rapid City, South Dakota. I haven't been there yet and regret not seeing it many years ago when we were close by. The same thing happened when we didn't have time to see the Historical Military Museum in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, because we had to return our rental car and catch a plane back to Oregon.

    I regret not having ever traveled out West. I've traveled the east coast & the south but have never traveled any further west than Baton Rouge, LA. I'm really hoping to visit Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Texas or (if I really get lucky!!!!) Hawaii this year. I don't have any real plans in the works but do hope by the grace of God that somehow I'll be able to afford to travel to at least one of those places that I've dreamed of going to!

    By Susan Crow on January 24, 2012 6:28 AM

    We are actually taking our first trip of the year. We leave Thursday to Wisconsin to see our son and his family. We don't always stay with him because his in laws come too and their isn't room for all of us, so we take turns staying at the Best Western 15 minutes away. Both familes are from the same town in Michigan. In February we will go to Alabama for my mother n laws 75th birthday for a long weekend. Hopefully our plan will be to head to Florida in April. In the summer we will do some traveling with a hot dog cart we purchased. Great way to see different places.

    Last year we made plans for travel by road to Orlando, but were not able to travel for such long hours due to increase in gas prices and we had no money to fly, so we decided to drop the plan due to this lack of money situation, this year we intend to save more so that we could afford a trip to Orlando and have fun and enjoy the Disneyland in Orlando and also see other sightseeing places near by.

    By Florence Ross on January 24, 2012 8:23 AM

    Every year we make plans to travel.....unfortunately we have not been able to. I would love to travel USA, although it is our neighboring country we have not had the opportunity to explore it. Financially we just don't have the money to travel. :(

    I am so excited about going on my first cruise! A friend and I are flying to Jacksonville, FL to board the cruise ship to Key West and Nassau! Because I have a ton of Best Western Reward points, I will pay for the hotel in Jacksonville with it - thank you Best Western!

    By Melanie C on January 24, 2012 9:38 AM

    Last year we wanted to take my grandmother in law to Niagra Falls but because of her health we couldn't. This year we are planning on staying in your Best Western Plus so she can enjoy the first floor courtyard while my 5 yr old son can go swimming.
    thanks!

    By Adriana T. on January 24, 2012 11:44 AM

    I am definitely ready to travel to Alaska this year! All I have heard from everyone who has traveled there is that it is the most beautiful place. We plan on taking a cruise once there but definitely plan to make a pit stop in Washington State before taking the cruise and earning more Best Western points during our stay.
    Here's to a great 2012 full of travel!!

    By Ellen S on January 24, 2012 1:37 PM

    I love travel probably more than most but am on a fixed income. In October 2011 I flew to Newburgh, NY to stay with a friend for nine days during which time we planned to visit Manhattan and other points of interest in NYC for a few of those days. I left Denver thinking my cold or flu symptoms would soon disappear, only to find out that they became much, much worse over the next few days. I saw one of my bucket list goals go from being so close to being so far, as I was confined to bed for 7 of the nine days of the trip. (The return trip was postponed several days due to a crippling snow storm in NY and I still had not improved). Finally, upon my return to Denver, I was taken to the hospital the night of my return due to what had become a viral ear infection as a result of the cold/flu and the flight back while ill. In the end, my dreams were shot. So, perhaps in 2012 I will have the opportunity to try once again to visit NYC and mark it off the bucket list. I have other trips on the list, but would love to complete that one in 2012.

    By Ellen S on January 24, 2012 1:47 PM

    I have always loved travel. I love it more than most. At this point in my life I am older, I am on a fixed income and have a bucket list that I am hoping to complete. In Oct of 2011 I had the opportunity to travel to Newburgh NY to visit a friend for nine days. We planned to spend a few days to visit NYC, which was on my bucket list. I believed at that time that the cold or flu symptoms I was experiencing would disappear soon. Instead, they worsened and I was in bed 7 of the nine days and that killed my plans to visit NYC. Even though a snow storm delayed my return for two days, my illness continued. On the night of my return flight to Denver, I was taken to the hospital several hours after my arrival with an acute viral ear infection which kept me there for several days. Well, NYC is still on my list, so I am hoping that I will be able to visit that great city in 2012.

    My daughter is in the Peace Corp and only makes it back to the states once a year. Last year, due to my father's sudden and unexpected illness, I was not able to see her when she arrived stateside for her annual visit. That is my biggest travel regret for 2011. My biggest travel promise of 2012 is that when her tour ends this summer, I will be there to greet her at the airport, and that we will celebrate her return by spending a week in New Orleans! Watch out, the Big Easy....here we come!

    We drove around the country, stopping in New Orleans for the International Rotary Convention. We stayed at the Best Western the 1st night, because we were there early, and then went to the Wyndham where we had reservations. That was the biggest mistake of our trip. We had better service, more courteous staff and better accomodations at all of The Best Westerns. We also didn't have to pay for parking at any of the Best Westerns, but we did at the Wyndham. We are Best Western fans for life. Thanks Best Western.

    a well planned long waited trip to Vegas was made for myself and my daughter for early december last year, but alas it had to be cancelled! i hurt my ankle exercising & it was impossible to walk comfortably, which ruled out walking the famous Strip! I hope this year it is a trip we can replan again and this time really get a chance to go! It would be fun to hang out with my daughter and see the night shows, and enjoy all of the architecture of the plush hotels and more of the ambience that is Vegas!

    Looks like my odds of winning aren't to good! Took me "FOREVER" to scan to the bottom of this page! But there are a lot of repeats and you did say only one entry allowed and there are "some" repeats. So, anyway......I LOVE TO TRAVEL!! Have not ever had to many opportunities. My sister, God bless her, took me on a cruise for my fiftieth birthday. It was amazing!!!! My husband has a bad heart so he had to have a defibrilator implant and then he got/has cancer and had never been to Disney so I got hold of a group that has , kind of, a "Make A Wish" for adults, so I was able to get him there through them. If anyone wants to find an amazing group of people to donate to they are called "The Dream Foundation". They are amazing!! So, anyway, we got to go to Disney!! Since he is ill and my mom is 88, I got them both moved from Ohio to Ft. Myers, Florida. Was a good choice cause neither one of them could do another winter in Columbus, Ohio. I was able to transfer down here with my job so that was a blessing but I think I need a bit of a break. Have always wanted to go to Africa!!! What an amazing trip that would be! Have, also, ALWAYS wanted to visit the Galopagos Islands. Or Hawaii, or Paris. (heee, heee) I can still dream! Thanks for letting me vent!!!!

    My travel regret for 2011 was not being able to see my granddaughter born in Wyoming last March because too much snow and I also became very ill and hospitalized. So my 2012 travel resolution would be to see see her this summer drive to Seattle and stay a night at Best Western then travel to Wyoming.

    My travel resolution for 2012, would be to bring my adult kids to an all-inclusive resort

    By Vickie Ramsey on January 25, 2012 7:22 PM

    Last summer I went on a trip to Disneyland and Legoland and all thouh it was a great trip I was only able to aford to take one of my granddaughters my regret is that I couldnt aford to take all 4 of them. As luck wold have it this year we qualify to buy Disneyland tickets through the military so it would be more afordable but then there is still the cost of the Hotel. That's where this contest comes in what a great treat to be able to take them all on a once in a lifetime trip with the grandma! Can you just the the excitement on their faces if I won. It couldnt get any better than that.

    My regret for 2011 is, not having been able to include my daughter on the trip we made to Vegas. She is in university now, and her education comes first. We brought he along on a trip to Europe in 2007, and it was the best trip I have ever taken.

    I want to take my wife on a trip through Arizona and Nevada. She has lost both her parents and she is close to her uncle, who is the last living member of the older generation and he is getting up there in age and she wants to see him in Arizona, for possibly the last time. I know how badly she wants to go. She also found out her close friend in Reno, Nevada is terminally ill and has 6 months to live. She is so distraught that she may not be able to visit her one last time and I can't think of a better thing to do for her than to take her on this trip. We would also pass by two of her childhood friends and we could see them, too. She has not seen them in many years. It is VERY important to her and she has had so many bad things happen to her, lately, I can't think of anyone who needs this vacation more. We probably can't afford it, so winning this contest would be the most wonderful thing to do for the kindest, funniest, sweetest most thoughtful person I know. You would give her a chance to see people she may never get to see again, so I can't put into words how important this is. She deserves it!

Her art exhibiit/show was rescheduled for August 2012 and I would love to go! I have never been to Thailand and I would love to go. I have 2 friends from high school that I haven't seen in a very long time that reside in Thailand that I would also love to visit and catch up on old times! I would also love to go to the beaches, ride an elephant, and eat exotic, authentic cuisine. I am hungry just thinking about it. Pick me, please! :)

    I wanted to visit Portland, Oregon, for my birthday in September because I'd never been there and I'd heard so many good things about it. I thought it would be great to escape the heat of the long desert summer where I live, so I got on a plane. To my surprise, it was during a hot spell, and Portland was way too sweaty to stay and see the sights, so I visited the magnificent Oregon coast instead. I regret not seeing all Portland has to offer, so I'd really like to go back.

    By angie on January 27, 2012 7:44 PM

    I would love to go back to Charleston SC. It is a very romantic area and I went camping 11 years ago . We did not had a camper just a car tarp and tide it against 2 trees. That night a storm and tornado came thru. We did not know of that until the next day when people cam eto see us and to make sure if we where alright,Something I will never forgett and would love to go back .

Its more important to him because his dad is actually a member of the NTHF and his picture hangs there. He passed away some years ago after having a stroke. He started his towing business over 50 years ago and my husband helps run it now.

    My travel regret was not travelling more Internationally and not sleeping on the flight to Singapore. My best travel so far in 2012 was staying at the Best Western on Main & N. Las Vegas Blvd. during CES. Low rates compared to the price gouging on the strip, clean quiet place and I was able to get a cab without standing in a line for 45 minutes like on the strip. Yeah it's in a crappy neighborhood but it's safe and clean and the local cops use it for a sub-station so the seedy folks stay outside the fence.

    By noel on January 28, 2012 12:30 PM

    Were I offered the opportunity, I would return to Peru, to experience more of that country. In August 2011, I traveled to Iquitos & the community of Belen during a community service experience with clowns from all over the world. I was exposed to cultures, radically different from my own & to heart-felt welcome in every face. To travel afar; to learn & offer my skills, continues to fuel my desire, intention, appreciation & work to afford all the world travel I may manage until such time as my resources (physical & fiscal) can no longer support those endeavors.

    My one travel regret for 2011 was that we didn't take our annual 4th of July trip to Lake Tahoe this year. I didn't realize until we were home on the big day how much it meant to our entire family. This year I'd like to accompany my brother and his family to Europe for a few weeks to visit her family in Moldova and Paris.

    My twin daughters and I are planning a special trip for 2012 that we have been calling our 30/60 trip. We are celebrating the fact that they will turn 30 and I will turn 60! I love to travel with them and look forward to some wonderful memories!

    By Monica on January 30, 2012 8:24 AM

    I wasn't sure how far I was going to be able to drive the 1st day of my trip from NW Wyoming, going to Houston, TX so I didn't make a hotel reservation for that night. By the time I was ready to stop driving, I was in the middle of nowhere in CO. There were only a few hotel rooms available and all were over $100/night! Next time I'll make a reservation so that I don't get scalped!

    We have stayed many times at the BW East Mountain in Wilkes Barre when visiting the old home town friends and attractions. Never though about looking into the suites until our last trip and it was incredible. We actually created a fun get away for the locals we were visiting by hosting the evening out at our suite!

    My regret...not looking into the suite sooner. Little extra cost was nothing compared to the fun we had.

    By Daniel Reynoso on January 30, 2012 8:41 AM

    In 2011 I was hoping to go to Hawaii to celebrate my 5th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately things don't always work out as planned. hopefully 2012 will be different.

    By bruce on January 30, 2012 8:48 AM

    I would love to go to Australia this year, and cross that off my bucket list.

    By billie mitchell on January 30, 2012 8:49 AM

    our wish is to spend as much time in new mexico that we can. we bought land there and its our dream to live in the future.. but for now our dream is to go there as much as we can..

    By K Bramble on January 30, 2012 8:49 AM

    We had a great vacation with grandkids in 2011 - except it wasn't long enough. We're planning on vacationing together in 2012, we just need to decide where

    By cara Lunecki on January 30, 2012 8:49 AM

    By Linda K on January 30, 2012 8:51 AM

    San Diego and Hawaii are on our list.

    By Rik on January 30, 2012 8:55 AM

    We have stayed many times at the BW East Mountain in Wilkes Barre, PA over the years visiting old home town friends and attractions, but never considered a suite until our last visit. I upgraded from our norm for a birthday treat,and we ended up creating the "get away" evening for a local friends by hosting the birthaday party in the hotel evnironment. Everyone had a blast!

    My regret....not looking into a suite sooner. The little extra cost was nothing compared to the fun it created!

    By Jeanine Boulter-Bitzer on January 30, 2012 8:57 AM

    Travelled to Niagara Falls, Ontario for winery tours in Fall 2011, and plan to go back again this year! There are a few Best Western's down there and we've stayed in 2 of them.
    Planning to do more travel in Canada and take in some of the arts in 2012!
    Caribbean is of course always on our list!

    By Sarah on January 30, 2012 9:04 AM

    We have had a difficult year. We did not really take a family vacation last year. I am hoping that my son and I can go somewhere relaxing. Time away is much needed because I work from home and it would be nice to go away this year.

    By Connie Delvaux on January 30, 2012 9:05 AM

    I wanted to go to the Black Hills in South Dakota but it got too late in the season and we couldn't make it. I hope to go there next fall.

    By JR on January 30, 2012 9:06 AM

    OK I live in the UK so not eligible for the competition but thought I would write about your amazing country anyway! we have visited for at least 4 weeks on every one of the past 13 years. 2010 drove from one great BW to another from Chicago to LAX via Little Bighorn, Yellowstone, Idaho Falls, SF, and Big Bear Lake; 2011 from Seattle across the Rockies and Yellowstone once again (one can get hooked on the place!!) this year our son (who lives in SF) who has a girlfriend and her parents are having a silver wedding party - so it is into Dallas FW and Hi to Houston for the party then the Arizona/Nevada deserts and mines, leaving from LAX, once again after a 10 week trip! But with the certainty that there will be a good BW hotel where ever we decide to go!! thank you BW, thank you America

    By Connie Delvaux on January 30, 2012 9:08 AM

    I wanted to go to the Black Hills in South Dakota last fall but couldn't make it so I hope to go this year.

    By Carol M. L. on January 30, 2012 9:11 AM

    Montreal would be my favourite destination for 2012. I regret that I didn't get there in 2011 to visit family.

    By Lori on January 30, 2012 9:13 AM

    I would love to take my husband on a long overdue and well deserved trip to Hawaii. We've always wanted to go there.

    By Diane on January 30, 2012 9:37 AM

    I used to spend my summers by the lake at my family's cottage in Vermont. It's been a very long time since we've visited Vermont and I miss this beautiful state. We're hoping to organize a family vacation this summer!

    By Michael Galumbeck on January 30, 2012 10:06 AM

    MY TRAVEL REGRET FOR 2011 is that I did not cancel my Comfort membership and join Best Western until 2012.

    I had a very unpleasant experience at a Comfort Inn and when I called the Comfort Hotels Corporate Office I was told that they had no responsibility for their franchisees. UNBELIEVABLE!

    By Janice on January 30, 2012 10:10 AM

    I wanted to go to a white sandy beach - but i'm still waiting.

    By Debbie Parnell on January 30, 2012 10:19 AM

    Stayed in Branson Mo, in 2011,,And will go back this year. Best weastern was great . Will stay again this year. Loved it, and the brekfest is great.

    By Sharon on January 30, 2012 10:21 AM

    I would have liked to spend more time in Edinburgh Scotland than I had last year. As for this year, I'm going to travel the northwestern coast of the US.

    By Linda Artner on January 30, 2012 10:29 AM

    This year we "kids" are going to celebrate our 40th Anniversary, and i HOPE we'll be riding our bicycles somewhere beautiful, renewing our souls and putting smiles on our faces again. 2011 was economically draining and 2012 has a chance for change.. oh please...Let the fun begin!

    By MIRELLA STINSON on January 30, 2012 10:29 AM

    I would love to travel to belgium,since i really love the history&culture of visiting.
    I hear it is quite an amazing place in which i haven't visited.

    I believe it is due time to experience some culture.

    By Lindsay Garberg on January 30, 2012 10:30 AM

    I'm going to do a tropical vacation this year. I'm thinking Cuba. Time to get some relief from Canadian winters.

    By Jamie Loyd on January 30, 2012 10:31 AM

    My husb'ands company voted no conference trip this year- so no New York city vacation for the families! Maybe next year's will be a good destination and vote yes.

    By Fran on January 30, 2012 10:55 AM

    Regret.. finding out 2 hours before leaving for airport that our trip to Antarctica was canceled because ship hit a rock.
    Resolution.. trying again this Feb with different company and different ship!

    By Diane on January 30, 2012 11:25 AM

    We were so hoping to travel to the UK, including Scotland this year to connect us with my husband's family roots but when I was laid off at the end of 2011 it seems our dreams may not come true.

    By Mary on January 30, 2012 11:52 AM

    I would love to go to Scotland and see the Castles and ruins.

    By Bonnie DeJong on January 30, 2012 12:03 PM

    we drove to South Carolina this year. I wish I had travellled on to Florida to visit my sister

    By Jacinta on January 30, 2012 12:05 PM

    I have a cousin in Maryland who's in her 80s. Last year I thought we could go see her but it didn't work out because of family complications and we had to use our money for moving. This year, I'd really like to visit her. She continues to tell me that she's getting old....

    By G.K.S. on January 30, 2012 12:12 PM


    Ever since we've retired I've wanted to take my Wife on an Alaskan cruise, as that is her only travel wish.
    We were going to go last year; however, our 3-year-old Grandaughter got sick and nearly died, so we put off the trip.
    Wish we had gone!
    I hope to take my Wife on that Cruise soon before she passes on.

    Good Luck to everyone in this Contest.

    By JoKing on January 30, 2012 12:18 PM

    My biggest regret is not planning better how to handle the jet lag. I do not handle lack of sleep well.

    In 2012 I'd like to visit more relatives. Starting with some in California in April. I hope to plan additional trips throughout 2012.

    I'm going to take every opportunity that comes up to travel, and I'm going to try to see at least one new place every year. This year when we go to Kauai we plan to spend a couple of days in Honolulu and see Pearl Harbor.

    By Barbara & Dixon on January 30, 2012 12:41 PM

    In 2012, we would love to travel to Vienna, Austria to visit Barbara's brother and his wife & daughter (who we have not met) and see other parts of Europe. This is one of our "bucket list" trips now that Barbara has retired.

    By Kathryn Friedle on January 30, 2012 12:53 PM

    I would love to travel to Boston, Mass. My husand grew up in the area and I would love to see the history of the area with him. We have lived in Alaska in a remote fishing village for the past 20 years and I would love to see the East Coast.

    By Douglas James on January 30, 2012 1:03 PM

    By Joanne on January 30, 2012 2:39 PM

    Last year my husband and I spent two weeks on beautiful Sanibel Island, Florida for our first retirement vacation. I just wish we had taken the Key West Express Ferry to visit Key West and stayed overnight in one of the Best Western Hotels since we were so close. Maybe this year! We stayed in several BW hotels on the way to Florida and on the way back to Nova Scotia and every stay was terrific!

    By Justin on January 30, 2012 2:52 PM

    I regret not PLANNING more destinations before hitting the road. This year our trips will be more thought out vs "Hey lets go to Yellowstone" and be gone..............................HAPPY TRAVELS!!

    I want to travel to Tampa Florida in 2012 since I did not get to travel in 2011 because I had to have infusions a couple of times a week for the entire year.

    By Robin on January 30, 2012 4:39 PM

    I visited the Northeast part of the US this summer and it was by far some of the most beautiful land I've ever seen. The one regret I have, though, in getting so close....was that I did not have time to visit Glacier National Park! I have to go back now, that's all there is to it! BTW, the Best Western in Jackson Hole, Wyoming rocks....we stayed there for several nights and it was GREAT!! Thank you!

    By Robin on January 30, 2012 4:46 PM

    Actually I meant to say I visited the NorthWEST part of the US....guess I was trying to type too fast, ugh! Nevertheless, if you haven't been there, you gotta go. It's magnificiently beautiful!

    By B Douglas on January 30, 2012 5:22 PM

    I would like to travel to New Hampshire to see my first Grandchild. I was there last year when he was born and am missing him growing up.

    We went to New Mexico in fall of 2011, Stayed two weeks and travel most of the entire state. Of course the North East Corner has the best scenary. The in January 2012 we got to go to Costa Rica for 9 Days. Very special place, Very different then most any place we have been.

    By Mike & Kim on January 30, 2012 6:55 PM

    We planned on celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary on the beach somewhere... maybe Hawaii... but some pesky expensive home repairs got in the way...

    By Karen P. on January 30, 2012 8:06 PM

    I have to travel almost every week for my job and it would be wonderful to take my 2 granddaughters to Hawaii. One is in college and the other one is a senior in High School. It would be awesome to spend time with them before they have a family of their own, and don't have time for their grandma!!!

    By Jodie R on January 30, 2012 8:58 PM

    My biggest travel plans for 2012 are going to Tokyo Japan. I am very excited as I am visiting my best friend who is stationed there at Camp Zama, and I will get to see a country I never thought I'd get to see!

    By Dian Anderson on January 30, 2012 9:10 PM

    Had to cancel our trip to NZ in 2011, this year I am making up for by going from India to Beijing to get there.

    By D Luna on January 30, 2012 9:47 PM

    My regret for 2011 was that I couldn't do any pleasure travel because of surgery. The good news, however, was that I did my recuperating at a Best Western in the town where the surgery was performed until I could travel back home - which made the whole experience SO much better!

    By jennifer penaloza on January 30, 2012 10:41 PM

    After all my medical problems that came up in 2011, I vow that 2012 will be a year that I will travel and take the time to enjoy what life has to offer.

    By diane welburn on January 31, 2012 12:00 AM

    in 2011 we didnt travel much because of my husband's surgery and lack of money. Hoping to travel more around Canada and US this year.

    By ann fujii on January 31, 2012 12:37 AM

    My favorite mountain top experience is the 5000 foot elevation Best Western on Mt Hood, in Government Camp, Oregon. A great little village with Huckleberry;s Dinner open all night filled with crazy mountain people. And after a great day of skiing and eating we sleep warm, surrounded by white snow (outside the BW). Quick breakfast in the morning and back to the slopes for a totally winter holiday., yet only 90 minutes from Portland. We will be there again in 2012.

    By Dennis George on January 31, 2012 12:45 AM

    Didn't get t o Puerto Rico.

    By CHARLENE on January 31, 2012 1:42 AM

    By George on January 31, 2012 3:35 AM

    I regret I didn't get to Japan in 2011! Maybe in 2012.

    By Tiffiny Duke on January 31, 2012 3:58 AM

    I needed to travel more! Got in a rut and didn't go many places.

    By Sheila on January 31, 2012 4:26 AM

    In 2011 we traveled to Canton Ohio from South Caroline our round trip was 1400 miles on our new Harley Davidson Road King. We plan to travel this year by plane to Alaska.

    By Margaret Bouchard on January 31, 2012 4:35 AM

    Each year I try to take my grandchildren on vacation. Last year we stayed at your Eden hotels in Hershey and Lancaster Pa. We started having car trouble when we left the first hotel but, were able to locate a dealer to look at the vehicle in Lancaster where we stayed next. This resort was a big hit with the children,which was a big hit with the children. We ended up getting bad news about the car and had to cut our trip short. The kids were upset that we had to cut our trip short, but we needed to make it back to Connecticut. To make matters worse my daughter noticed that the diamond was missing from her engagement ring. All and all we had a great time and the kids talk about going again. Especially my 4 yr old grandson.

    Would love to visit the Tetons this summer...our national parks are so beautiful!

    By Daniel J. Windle on January 31, 2012 8:51 AM

    One of my favorite places to visit is the Black Hills in South Dakota. I have not been able to travel there since I was 13 years old, I am now 49.I had a trip planned there in 2011 with my Fiance' but our plans had to be put on hold. Now I am getting Married to this Lovely Lady in June of 2012 and I would love to be able to take her there for our Honeymoon. She, at 43 has yet to ever see the splendor of what South Dakota has to offer. So I would love to take her there in 2012.

    By Pat & Garry on January 31, 2012 9:10 AM

    In 2011 we went to Pennsylvania, from Gettysburg to Philly's downtown Reading Terminal market, also visited Wildwood on the Jersey shore for Easter. In the fall we watched the leaves turn in North Carolina. Stayed in North Georgia to hike. Hope to go to the NW part of Colorado and also to Wyoming this year. We enjoy traveling, hiking and visiting museums wherever we go.

    By Noemi Rios on January 31, 2012 9:18 AM

    I would LOVE for my husband, our kids and myself to travel to Arizona to visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk. We could not visit this awesome place last year on 2011 but hopefully GOD willing this will be our year to go. I even found the place to stay "BEST WESTERN PREMIER Grand Canyon Squire Inn".

    By June Vetter on January 31, 2012 10:34 AM

    I would love to win this. I have always wanted to take my son to Washington state to visit my sister. It has been 16 years. Needless to say my son is a young man now. We had major flooding in my town in 2011 and lost my home and belongings. This would be just what the doctor ordered. Crossing my fingers! Thanks Best Western for the opportunity!

    By Sandra S on January 31, 2012 11:47 AM

    Last year I didn't really get to travel much, so I'm hoping that in 2012 I will get a proper vacation, would love to go to Cuba!

    By Rachelle on January 31, 2012 11:54 AM

    I will be travelling to Italy in April and May. I have reserved at the Best Western Picadilly for 4 nights. The location seems great to visit all that Rome has to offer.

    By Ronald & Olivia on January 31, 2012 12:22 PM

    By DeeDee on January 31, 2012 2:53 PM

    Eight years ago, this past Christmas Eve, my husband died with a massive heart attack at the age of 42. At the time, we lived in Chattanooga, TN, where he had grown up and his family resided. I was just 30 years old myself and found myself, a single, widowed mother with two young children (4 years old & 5 months old). I moved the kids and myself across the country to Oregon where my family lived. There, they were able to help me with the kids while I returned to college to attempt to make a better life for our little family.

    Over the years I always took the kids back to visit family and friends at least once a year. Until 2 1/2 years ago. Finances just would not allow it. Then, last year, I thought we would make it out to visit. Plane ticket prices soared and placed another roadblock. I planned a different route; we'd drive across the country instead. It would be an educational, fun trip with the kids. That dream ended when there was a massive heat wave, several tornados, and a flooding river that closed down the highways along our planned path. Another year that the kids didn't get to go see their grandmother. I felt awful about it--and still do.

    This year is already having roadblocks of it's own. We were involved in a head-on collision. I broke both of my legs and spent over three weeks in the hospital. It's been three months and I'm still bound to a wheelchair and cannot work. I am determined to overcome this and make that trip with my kids to see their grandmother--THIS SUMMER! Money is obviously tight, but I cannot let them go another summer without seeing their grandmother. Winning this would mean so much! It would be a HUGE help in paying for our accomodations while we are out there. This trip has just got to happen...and it needs to happen in 2012!

    By Gina on January 31, 2012 2:58 PM

    Im hoping to go to New York in 2012. I have always wanted to go and Im hoping I can make it happen this year. If not, Im going to Vegas for a friends wedding and I will stay in the New York New York Hotel :)

    By Anita on January 31, 2012 3:57 PM

    Hoping to take some time off this year - just for us. It's hard when you have parents to take care of and watch over - I don't mind doing it but just would like a break from it all, without work interruptions too!

    By Alicia Purzycki on January 31, 2012 4:02 PM

    In March my husband and I are finally going on our honeymoon to St John, USVI. I can't wait!

    My husband & I are returning from Florida and the only place to stay is a "Best Western", in our opinion because they are always clean, have a knowledge staff & are easy to find.

    In December 2011 we lost our Dear Deanna and I would use the Gift Card to off set the cost of traveling to Winona, MN to conduct her Memorial Service. That is our home town and where her Parents are At Rest.

    My job keeps me on the road a great deal of the time so when I have time off I tend to spend my time closer to home.
    Retirement comes for me in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to traveling with the love of my life to some of the settings from the romantic books that I've had time to read. Nova Scotia, Connecticut, and the Oregon coast just to name a few of the places I want to discover. We're hoping to slow the pace of our travel, stop frequently, and stay as long as we enjoy our surroundings.
    I love that Best Western covers so much of the country and we'll have the opportunity to feel at home no matter where we travel.

    The sacred grounds of Machu Picchu in Peru, South America is on my "Bucket List". I hope to travel to Peru in 2012.
    My husband and I are retired and travel extensively. We always search for Best Western properties, especially when we are out of the country. Reservations can be made online from home and cancelled, if necessary, without a fee. The hotels always reflect the local ambience and we can trust the Best Western name for quality.

    Two of our children were accepted for college recently which both would start in September. We were trying to plan a family trip last summer but with everyone's different work schedules it did not work out. Winning this contest would help us take the family on a family trip before they all go their separate ways at the end of August. It would be really amazing to take them to where we took them when they were little during the summer which is where my grandma lives in Campbellford, Ontario.
    Thanks for the opportunity to bring the family together before their lives start changing faster then we realize.
    Sincerely,
    Debra-Ann Taylor

    In 2011 we had planned a trip to Georgia with my father. We planned to see my son and to purchase an English Bulldog while there. My father became seriously ill and subsequently passed away so we did not take the trip. This year we want take that trip and hope to come home with a bullie pup named Jack.

    This year (2012) I traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana and stayed at the Best Western in the French Quarter. I had such an amazing time getting to see the beautiful, cultural architecture and shopping at the french market, and then dinner and some drinks on Bourbon St. that evening. The Best Western employees where I stayed that night were sensational, too. I hope to travel wherever there is a Best Western. I have enjoyed all my Best Western experiences and hope to have plenty more!

    A trip to Mexico in 2011 for our sons wedding turned into a nightmare (nothing to do with our travel plans) because of a medical issue. After receiving devastating news and not ever believing that we were going to be able to travel any distance again we have had a stroke of luck that will allow us one more trip. We cannot go back to mexico and make the trip what we would have but the redwood forest was on our list of things to do in the USA. So 2012 still will hold a holiday memory that we had not expected.

    In 2011 my wife really wanted to go to an island for fun and sun, but we kept spending our vacation money on other things. In 2012 I would love to take her because she works so hard and never makes time for herself. This is our goal.

    By Laurie L. on February 7, 2012 6:35 AM

    I hope to get to London this year. My daughter has been living there for 4 years and I've not been able to get there yet. She knows everything about the history of the area and my friends and family tell me she is the most wonderful travel guide ever. Saving my pennies and just got my passport....keeping my fingers crossed!

    We plan to go to Seattle. We leave on a cruise from there. Also, we would like to go to Nova Scotia, riding a Honda Goldwing Trike. Never hurts to have dreams.

    I traveled widely through Spain and France last fall (stayed at many B.W's) but would love to try L.A or Palm Springs to warm up out of the wet coast chill!

    I live up in Newfoundland and I'm hoping to go on a trip this next summer. I just hope that when I'm driving in other countries that I don't get in any car accidents. I think that would be terrible. I think I'll be okay though.

    By bills8091 on February 25, 2014 5:40 PM

    I really enjoy traveling. I finally got to go to Disney world the two years ago. I was really excited about that and it turned out to be just as good as I had hoped.
