I'm a single mom, where can I take my only child, 16 yr old boy, for a fun vacation next year?

He has no ideas and neither do i. we've been to florida every year and it's getting old. i have a timeshare i can use practically anywhere but i just don't know where we can both enjoy ourselves and it's making me crazy! i'm the worlds biggest planner and i can't make any plans!

Depending on your son's birthday and if he is a sports fan; Take him on a weekend trip to a see either a college basketball or football game. That would be a good time for you guys to look at schools and it will be inexpensive so a couple of his friends can tag along.

We used our timeshare earlier this year to go on a vacay to the Smokey Mountains- took my 13 yr old nephew along with our toddler. Spent some time in the timeshare but also spent time hiking on the Appalacian Trail, did the Junior Naturalist program in the GSM National Park, walked around Gatlingburg, went over to Cherokee NC and went to a pow wow, and also did white water rafting. The rafting cost but the only thing the other activities cost was the gas to get there.

Next year we're going to Wisconsin Dells and taking the nephew again- plan to spend several day trips to a local state park for some hiking, fishing, and such. Again, not a lot of $$!

We also go camping every summer. There are many of the timeshare resorts that aren't far from various state and national parks that you can enjoy some time outdoors, get exercise AND explore historical and natural features of the US.

My son loved New Orleans. We have a time share also, and ended up right in the French Quarter! We walked everywhere, took bus tours, ate at some wonderful restaurants (Brennan's being one--they invented the banana's foster which is made right at your table!) I highly recommend it for both you and your son.

How adventurous are you? How adventurous is he? What sort of budget do you have to work w/? Africa (not just South Africa) can be VERY exciting & it will change your lives. You could even work in a service project. Having a shared experience that big would be an awesome way to build memories & your bond w/ your son. If you want more info, I'm happy to provide it. I've lived there & know lots of the ins & outs.

A cruise, all inclusive resort, or California. CAlifornia is great b/c you can go to one location San Diego or hop in a car and see half the state (LA, desert, tahoe, etc).
