So i've come to the conclusion i need to get the hell out of canada for a brief period before i go crazy :P the current plan is to grab a couple friends and take off somewhere, preferably outside of north america for about 7 days sometime in march or april. The problem being no one has any idea where. I'm not a big sunshine/beach type person but I will go anywhere the liquor is cheap ;-). So I ask you PA, wheres a good place for a few guys in their early-mid twenties to take off to and have fun for a week?

    I know you said somewhere out of North America, but there aren't too many places I can think of that wouldn't be piss-miserable in March. In the northern hemisphere, it's spring, which means rain everywhere except the desert, and the southern hemisphere is a pretty damned expensive vacation for a bunch of spur-of-the-moment 20somethings.

    So, looking closer to home... Reno, maybe? Gambling, cheap gin, loose women, and plenty of other stuff to do if you get bored of the nightlife: there's Lake Tahoe nearby, which I hear is kind of pretty, or you could rent a car (assuming at least one of you is over 25) and spend a day or two in San Francisco.

    Rygar made a nice visitor's guide of an OP over in D&D a while back, offering to hook people up with cheap rooms and overcomps at the resort he works at, so try sending him a PM if you're interested.

    I'm here to tell you about voting. Imagine you're locked in a huge underground nightclub filled with sinners, whores, freaks and unnameable things that rape pit bulls for fun. And you ain't allowed out until you all vote on what you're going to do tonight [. . .] So you vote for television, and everyone else, as far as your eye can see, votes to fuck you with switchblades. That's voting. You're welcome.

    Cuba!

    I'd just really like to go, and can't, since it's illegal if you're American. It's not fair. <img class=" title=":cry:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    It's snowing in Reno/Tahoe. So don't go there. Besides, Reno is just Vegas Lite.

    There you go...Vegas. Scottsdale/Tempe in the Phoenix area. Denver is fun, but cold. Chicago (also cold).

    Outside of the continent...Australia? It's summer there right now.

    Come here. :P

    Or any decently sized city in the UK, for that matter. I don't know what your budget's like, or the relative strength of the Canadian dollar and the Pound, but I will say that London is freakishly expensive even by UK standards.

    No beaches, and almost certainly no sun, but you will find decent nightlife.

    If you can avoid the spring break season, you can find some really great deals for places in the Caribbean. I was told about all inclusive (yes, even booze) resorts in Mexico and Cuba for $300-400 during off season. Of course, your mileage may vary but if the Looney stay strong you should be able to find some great deals.

    Oh, and keep an eye on TravelZoo. They usually have great deals on discount airfares and such.

    edit: Oops, just saw that you're not a big fan of beaches. I guess you can consider going on a cruise. You don't have to participate in any outdoor activities or watersports if you don't want to, but you'll basically be eating for seven days straight.

    Hmm ,well after reading through the thread and doing a bit more research my two top contenders so far seem to be Reykjavik and Havana, with somewhere in the a maybe (yes i know, complete opposites :P) Just to clarify on my first post a little bit, beaches and oceans are fine, just not looking for somewhere where thats literally *all* there is to do. Cuba seems to have some interesting looking bars/clubs/markets/whatever in addition to its beaches, whereas i've heard in most places in mexico your generally stuck in your inclusive resort on the beach, with nowhere else to go, did i hear wrong?

    Reykjavik is expensive. Some of my corp mates from Eve are from there, and the majority of them went there for fan fest... Booze is not cheap there.

    Cuba is awesome, been there and stayed at an all inclusive. It's dirt cheap and you get amazing service. The country is safe, you are not confined to the compound or anything like that. Havana is a great city to visit, lots of history if you are into that thing like I am, just like any large city though, there are things you have to be careful of like pickpockets in markets and obviously you are not going to wander around at night. Hell, there are places in Edmonton I wouldn't wander around in at night either :P

    Also, get a last minute deal. They are insanely cheap. People we talked to while in Cuba that flew from Toronto and booked their trip one week prior to leaving got the whole one week all inclusive package for $500.

    If it was me looking for a vacation right now I'd probably have to say the UK, or southern Germany.
