    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 :)

  • Alouise

    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.

  • Sam

    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.

  • Kimberly

    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!

    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.

  • Brian Carriere

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

  • Enrique Marin

    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.

    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!

    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.

I hope to take the family once again this year.

  • Sheila Stevens

    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.

  • Krissy Rouse Higgins

  • Ty

    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!

  • Jeff Swartz

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

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.

  • Kathy Mc

    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!

  • Tina Bernstein

    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 :-)

  • Todd White

    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.

    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!

  • Judy Colbert

    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.

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

  • Marilyn Legault

    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.

  • Jan

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

  • CG

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

  • Angela

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

  • Amanda

    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.

  • Chie S

    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!

  • James Brown

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

  • Jurgen Deagle

    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.

  • Robert

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

  • kent marley

    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.

  • Kimberly

    Hawaii!

  • EMU

    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.

  • rita turk

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

  • Ron

    Hopefully Florida, never been there!

  • cc

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

  • andrea

    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 :)

  • Danielle

    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

  • wayne

    eating lobsters in Newfoundland!

  • dayna Woodbury

    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!

  • heather hadley

    I regret not making it to California in 2011 and visiting my best friend but 2012 is the year!!

    Wished we could have made it to las Vegas this past year…….maybe this year

    !!!

  • Johnny

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

  • Steve

    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 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 :(

  • Kris Labotne

    I want to travel to the okanogan this summer

  • Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard

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

  • James Wilkinson

    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.

  • Rebecca R

    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! :)

  • Christina T

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

  • Tracey C

    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

  • Loni

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

  • Ricki911

    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,

  • Debbie F

    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.

    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.

  • Kim

    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.

  • George Morin

    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.

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.

  • Courtney K.

    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.

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

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

  • Michele Woloshyn

    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.

    I would love to travel to Hawaii.

  • Kyra G

    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!

  • Carla Ala-Kantti

    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!

We see each other every 2 months so I would love to win a travel gift card.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Jeyn Miller

    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!

  • Lynn Bruneau

    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.

    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.

  • Susan

    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.

  • Kim Timon

    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 =)

  • Vanessa

    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

  • Tracie Vandermeulen

    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!

  • tracy

    i would love to travel to taos new mexico.

  • Jacquelyn Perruzza

    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.

  • Marica T

    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.

  • Holly C.

    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.

  • Wendi Maroon

    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.

  • Johna DeRosier

    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.

  • Martha Cole

    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.

  • Ann

    I have never been to California…I would like to go there…

  • Kathryn

    I have always wanted to see the House on the Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin. I see the billboards advertising it on our travels through Minnesota and Wisconsin but have never made it there.

  • Christy

    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!

  • stacy b

    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.

  • Nicole

    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!

  • Susan Brust

    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!

  • Barbara Lee

    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.

  • Sharon

    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.

  • Patrick

    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.

  • Patricia Caradonna

  • Lisa H

    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!!

  • Alexandra L.

    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.

  • Lory Q

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

  • Kevin L

    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

    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.

    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.

  • Lory Q

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

  • V Varner

    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!

  • Catherine Freimark

    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!

  • V Varner

    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.

  • shelly kristianson

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

  • Diana Nelson

  • Jackie Carter

    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.

    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!

  • Barbara McLellan

    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.

  • Danny Warren

    I’d like to travel to Australia this year

  • Jackie

    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).

  • Karen

    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!

    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.

I want to make it happen and check this website constantly for deals…$250 would certainly be nice!!

    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.

  • Sandra Bruso

    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

  • Jeannette Laframboise

    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.

  • Kat

    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!

    :) 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!

  • Laurie MacNeil

    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.

  • Patti J.

    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.

  • Carolyn Hoxworth

    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!

  • Paula K

    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 :)

  • Heidi K.

    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!

  • B Phelps

    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.

  • Patt Celayeta

    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.

  • Monica

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

  • Alex Unander

    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!

  • Kristine Cuchna

    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!

  • Joan

    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!!

  • bob hudson

    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!

  • Robynne Sokolowski

    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.

  • Carol Pickup

    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.

  • Vince H.

    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.

  • Dana

    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! :)

    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.

  • Phyllisofical

    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.

    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

    Would love to see the Grand Canyon.

  • Angela M

    I would like to go to Hawaii this year — one more time before we expand our family.

  • Sara Gardiner

    My 2012 New Year’s Resolution…to only stay at Best Western Hotels!!

  • Adele Andrews

    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.

  • Holly

    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!!:)

  • Holly

    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!!

  • Clyde N.

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

  • Damon Jacobs

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

  • Lynn T.

    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!!!

  • Kathleen G.

    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!

  • Jamie Woods

    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,

  • Phil

    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.

  • Jackie Moisan

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

  • Rob

    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.

  • Erika Burkhard

    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.

  • Elena

    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!!!

  • Craig

    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.

  • craig

    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.

  • Cecil

    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.

  • Marjorie Buerkle

    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

  • keke189

    Travel regret-Having a layover in NYC and not being able to stay overnight and experience the city.

  • Melissa Leinart

    I woulld love to visit Costa Rica in 2012.

  • H.Funk

    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!

  • Sarah

    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.

    I want to go to Ottawa since last year

  • Victoria

    I love the American Southwest. I visited New Mexico in 2011, but want to return to the “four corners” area in 2012, and explore Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

  • Lori

    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.

  • Deb Philippon

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

  • Becky

    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!)

  • madison bingley

    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

  • Norm Johnson

    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.

  • carson bingley

    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!

  • melinda burd

    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.

  • Kate

    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!

  • Pamela

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

  • Jocelyn

    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.

  • Coral Petzoldt

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

    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!

  • Richard Buchkoski

    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?

  • Sandra O.

    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.

  • janice

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

    I regret not using my points to go to vegas or to see family in mexico! :( I did redeem them for some nice reward cards! Best western is awesome!

  • Alena Tran

    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.

  • Rachael

    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.

  • Lyse Renaud

    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.

  • Rachael

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

  • Bobbi

    I would definatly see more of Italy.

  • Janis W

    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.

  • Brian

    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!

  • Lynn

    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. :)

  • Denyse

    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.

  • don

    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.

  • James

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

  • d.g.

    I’d love to explore small cities this summer.

  • Janice

    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!

  • Chuck Schneider

    By Chuck:

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

  • Samuel Bess

    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.

  • Lorenda

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

  • Cindy

    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.

  • Brenda Chrimes

    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.

  • Rafael Reyes

    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.

  • Reena

    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.

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

  • Nancy

    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.

    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.

  • Carol

    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.

  • Joyce

    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.

  • Caroline M

    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.

    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!

    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 }

  • BarbaraC

    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!

  • BEC

    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!

  • William

    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.

    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!

    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.

  • Kim Johnson

    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!!!!

  • Karen O

    I would love to visit my best friend in California.

  • Jill

    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.

  • Michelle Blanchette

    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.

  • Barbara Leaf

    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.

  • Teresa White

    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.

  • April Sikkila

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

  • Alyssa Sparacino

    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 :)

  • Roxann Ames

    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!!

  • Barbara Leaf

    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.

  • Brook

    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!

  • Hayley

    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 :)

  • Trishia Jacobs

    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.’ :)

  • Johanna

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

  • Deborah

    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!!

  • Mary

    I would like to travel to PEI this year!

  • Susan C

    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!

  • Vicki R

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

  • Jill

    I would love to travel to several national parks with my hubbie and two daughters in 2012!

    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.

  • Whicket Williams

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

  • John Curry

    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.

  • Kathryn Church

    *** My travel resolution for 2012 is to travel to Charlotte NC to the Nascar “Allstar” Sprint Cup race on May 19th.

    I have the race tickets now I need the “BEST” hotel to stay in.

    I love you Best Western and Thank You : )

  • Mark

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

  • SBM

    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.

  • Cathy Grayson

    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.

  • Leah S

    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.

  • Lana Charlton

    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!

  • Dave

    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.

  • LeeAnn

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

  • Lynda E

    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.

  • Sheila Axelson

    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!

  • Edward G

    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.

  • Tina W

    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!!!

  • Jean

    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!

  • Greg O

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

  • Eddie L

    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.

  • Susan Leslie Grant

    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.

  • Marcus Stewart

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

  • Frances Fout

    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!

  • Shakti B

    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.

  • RJ Lerich

    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!

  • K Donovan

    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!

  • Brenda Montgomery

    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:(

  • Candace Thompson

    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!!!

  • Candace Thompson

    In 2011, we made a long weekend trip to the Big Bend area of Texas. In 2012, I’d like to visit the Badlands!

  • Amy Freedman

    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!!

  • bonnie macleod

    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.

  • Tanya Cline

    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! :)

  • jamie

    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!

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..

  • Nkki Lindell-Evans

    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!!!!

    Would make it easier on my mom to be able to afford to see me graduate from navy bootcamp near Chicago.

  • Michelle Gucwa

    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.

  • Courtney

    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 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.

  • Sari Shepard

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

  • Michele

    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!!

  • Denise

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

  • Courtney

    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

  • Laura Andrade

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

  • Jody Thomnas

    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.

  • kelly s

    Heading to Cabo for the first time later this month!

  • Tracy Hansen

    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.

  • Randy Norman

    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.

  • Sharon Whitaker

    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!

  • June Anderson

    Planning a road trip along the Florida Panhandle this spring.

  • Debbie Kocher

    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….

  • Lorraine Thomas

    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!

  • Margaret Chizek

    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.

  • Romana

  • Kate O’Brien Bronson

    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.

  • Elizabeth

    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.

  • Cyndy

    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.

  • Tim

    We have never been to Hawaii and would like to go.

  • Deb Butterflys

    Did not get to travel to Sedona last year, maybe this year.

  • Steve

    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.

  • Shirley

    In 2012 I would like to travel to Nashville.

  • Linda Berg

    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.

  • jane sandona

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

  • Inez Buell

    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.

  • Inez Buell

    We went to Nashville, TN last year and we need to go to Michigan this year. We have grandchildren there that we haven’t seen as of yet. We plan to go there either this spring or summer.

  • Susan

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

  • Linda Berg

    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.

  • Ken

    Will finally make it to ‘John Ford’ country and see the Four Corners, Monument Valley, and Chaco Canyon.

  • Eileen Tidd

    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!

  • marisa

    I would like to go to Washington DC this year.

  • Nancy

    Our goal this summer is to take an extended road trip to the Pacific Northwest to visit friends and show our children some country they have never seen.

  • Jane Scouten

    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.

  • Johntah Wykawarzecha

    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!

  • Win K.

    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.

  • Matt D.

    Well, we’re crisscrossing the country, again, for a job. Would like to see what’s in between.

  • Lisa W

    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!!!

  • Carol L.

    Friends have been asking us to visit them in Florida for the last three years…this is the year to make it happen!

  • Sherry

    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!

  • Patricia Ketterer

    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.

  • Kristian

    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.

  • Dianne Severs

    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.

  • Dianne Severs

    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.

  • Lorraine Thomas

    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!

  • Sharon

    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.

  • Ted Fuller

    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.

  • Kathy

    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.

  • Virginia Rood

    I want to visit Washington D.C. I’ve been there several times, but it is always a fascinating city.

  • Tim Parker

    Another year has passed without me going to visit my mother. I was hoping to have had a job in time for me to make the trek to Indiana for Christmas! My new goal is to make it by Mothers Day. I miss that woman and neither of us is getting any younger.

  • joann tompkins-winborn

    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.

  • Joann tompkins-winborn

    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.

  • hfs

    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.

  • Tom Hart

    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!

  • joy stanton roe

    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 ;)

  • Kathy S

    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.

  • joy stanton roe

    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!

  • Rinda

    My husband and I have traveled to several foreign countries but now we want to see the USA! We have only traveled to the states south of North Carolina and only westward to Tenn. We really want to see all the beautiful areas that this great country has. USA here WE COME if we win this contest!

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.

    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!!!

  • Michelle Hurlbut

    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!

    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!

  • Rose

    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.

  • Linda Fast

    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.

    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!

  • Carlos

    I would go to Ireland and immerse myself in the history of that wonderful island!

  • Ali

    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.

    2. See Niagara Falls – which, barring some life weirdness, will happen. My trip is already booked.

  • Brandon Piastka

    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!

    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.

    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.

  • Lora Leber

    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!

    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!

    Praying this can happen! Thanks!

  • Linda Stewart

    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!

  • Denali Arias

    I’m hoping to spend our first wedding anniversary in Ontario, Canada!

  • Mary Bugden

    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.

  • Thomas Worthington

    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

    England is the place I would love to be! Any Best westerns there?

  • LORNA OLSEN

    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.

  • Linda Nicol

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • kenneth Stern

    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.

  • Doris

    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

  • kenneth m stern

    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.

  • Marion

    Although we travel a lot, my son has not seen much of Canada so our plan is to travel either to B C or to Nova Scotia.

  • Kurt Knowles

    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.

  • Mel McGee

    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….

  • Lorraine

    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…

  • Catherine

    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!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Winter

    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!

  • Laranda

    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 :(

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.

  • Christy Moffett

    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)!

    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!!!

  • Brenda H. Talley

    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)!

  • Patricia Palomino

    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.

  • Bill Dyer

    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.

  • Johnson Tran

    My travel regret of 2011 was not doing an all-inclusive vacation

  • cathy dobinson

    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!!

  • Danielle Thomas

    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!

  • Mary

    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.

  • Janice Carleton

    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.

  • Jamie

    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!

    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!!

  • Annmarie

    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.

    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..

So many places, so little time :)

    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!

  • Glenn Richardson

    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

    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.

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.

Now I want to go back and make it right. Someday….

    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”.

    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

    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

    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!

  • Sylvia Mallon

    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!

    I would like to travel to Niagara Falls!

  • Cathy

    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!

  • Karissa

    Niagara Falls please! I’ve only seen it by air, would love to see it in person ;-)

  • Chanda McFarland

    My daughter will turn 21 this year and we are taking many of our family members and going to Vegas.

  • Susan Dobie

    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!

  • Lynn Voss

    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.

    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.

  • Donna Bitting

  • Sarah M.

    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!

    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.

  • S. Montague

    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!!!!

    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!

    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!

  • Laurie A

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    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!!!!

    My first choice would be to Florida or California to go to the beach. Also like to go to Texas to visit family.

    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.

    We are planning a trip to England, with the bulk of our time in East Anglia. Our pilgrimage includes visiting the base where my father was in WWII. In London, we are considering one of the Best Western properties.
