      I like to get off the beaten path and go to small town America. I usually find that a little mom and pop cafe will have better food at a better price than tourist meccas. I ask the locals what their town's attractions are, and try some of those.

      Holiday? As a photographer, I have no holiday, only working trips. Every trip is an opportunity for me to take more photos. smile

    Taking tours.  Not the all day kind, but the ones that last a couple of hours.  Three at the most if there's a lunch or dinner involved.

    Only two real choices; spend time with my extended family or go FISHING.

    Just exploring the sights and beautiful places, and especially seeing how the local people live...one of my favourite memories of taking my son on holiday is when he tried to play football with a local boy, even though there were huge language barriers.

    Based on the thread comments...holiday does not mean celebrations of a nationally recognized event but rather vacation...that said, I just like not to think about daily stuff like planning or technology or every day issues...

      Yes, going back to actually going away, I just like to not think about housework, or cooking meals!

        my response would have been slightly different if it had meant actual holiday vs. vacations...then it depends on the holiday smile

      Yeah, I've just come to accept that when anyone not American says the word holiday it means vacation.

        Yes, it does most of the time! We would say Bank Holiday if it is just a public holiday. Or holiday could mean holiday from school or work, not actually going anywhere.

          LOL, I'm glad you explained that.  I just thought that's when the people at a bank get the day off.

    I agree that exploring the sights of beautiful places is a wonderful holiday activity.  Some of those beautiful places have protection as national parks -- in many countries around the world.  For a vicarious experience of family backpacking in one of America's lovely national parks, read the book UPS AND DOWNS AROUND RAINIER by Nancy Catton, ISBN: 0-7596-4658-9

    Climbing trees, gathering exotic nuts, hiding under park benches and sampling all of the food scraps littering the ground.

    I like to see new places , try new food and just walking about on the streets. If the place has a nice night view, I would try to enjoy it too!

    I like to do many things but one of my favorite things is to relax and people watch. 

    I take my time and select an interesting spot with lots happening around me, order a nice cold beer (if its hot) or a lovely cappuccino and observe.

    If it's hot spend time on the beach playing beach tennis,swimming etc. Also like to see the "real" place and find a small bar and watch people. At night go for a couple of beers, then a restaurant, relax and chill out for a couple of hours.

    Chess is pretty good. Easy to carry with you and gives your lazy holiday days a sense of achievement when you win. Also helps boring family holidays liven up with some healthy competitive spirit. Great brain exercise too.

    I love exploring the local areas, whether this be on foot on bicycle.  I think you get a true understanding for the local people if you know where they come from and what their surroundings are actually like.
