Hi, dh wanted to go to the States, just cannot afford it, flights alone were almost £5000. Just cannot think of anything exciting and different. Kids want a theme park, dh wants not to much driving and I want out of a kitchen as even on holiday I end up cooking! Cruises all booked up, don`t want a 2 week beach holiday, please........any ideas?

Why not stay at a few youth hostels around the UK? You could all research places you each want to visit, then decide as a family where to go, picking the best. Part of the fun could be in the planning.

How about lake Garda? Theme park Garda land, haven't been to it though. We did trip to Venice and Verona, boat trips, cable car up mountain. Last year we went to sorrento and visited Pompeii, mount vesiuvious etc. This year we are going to Crete. We were looking at Florida too and I remember your thread from a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't face the heat and queues, and it is expensive . Good luck!

We've been to Holland a few times, stayed in their Centerparcs. There is a theme park called Efteling and we did a mixture of sightseeing and sporty stuff.
