To each his own, but a boring beach vacation is what I consider fabulous. Then on vacation I like to relax and be bored. Never understood why anyone would want a working vacation? The type that they need an extra week of vacation to recover from all their activity.
Vegging on the beach with a drink that has a little umbrella, SPF 500 sunscreen. Ah that is the life.
Yes, my wife and I like to get out and walk and site see. Looking forward to our next adventure together.

Yes! I like to stay active on my vacations - laying on the beach all day would just get boring! I went on a cruise with my sister and our significant others last year, and I used the gym on the ship when we were at sea, and then we walked around to see the sights when we were in port.
A snorkeling vacation is great exercise and also motivation to get in shape before vacation!

I spend my days walking all over different cities, and when I'm by the coast I love swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. I love arriving in a new city and just looking around to try to find a high point, then finding my way up there (by walking) in the late afternoon, just in time to see sunset and take photos. Finding a high point and getting there is a great way to see residential and less-touristy areas that you might not see otherwise.
My boyfriend and I try to keep active on our weekend outings (can't afford a real vacation)... the plan for this year was going to be renting kayaks, garnet mining, and lots of hiking... don't know now with his back being so screwed up what, if anything, we will get to do this year!
I do try to take an active vacation at least twice a year (one long weekend, and one about 10 days) and even get a little frustrated because the people I go with are slowing down.
Now I'm considering taking it one step further. I'm actually, seriously thinking of taking 3-6 months off to go volunteer in a National Park where part of the "job" would be heavy-duty hiking and mountain biking (and where I'd be lucky to get to a store twice a month, so there's not much access to junk food.) I mainly want to do it because it's a cool thing to do, but the fact that I might get rid of those last 15 pounds is there in the back of my mind, too!
walk to museum, stroll quaint streets get out and browse in the park, the library, the mall...go to beach, mountains, beautiful scenery and interesting out of the way antique stores. You don't have to buy anything
