    Random Info Request
    Next year, I get 4 weeks' vacation.*

    Beloved and I were fantasizing the other night over what we'll do with those 4 weeks in 2008. We figure a week off during the kids' April vacation, 1/2 spent at home (their wish), 1/2 in D.C. (our wish/my refusal to use an entire week of vacation to sit in this town); a week in late summer with the kids after they spend time with their dad (perhaps a house on the Cape? Perhaps finally taking them to Bar Harbor? Perhaps camping?), and a week at the holidays to mostly stay home, probably go to my parents' house, etc.

    That leaves one more week.

    Beloved and I want to spend it together ... in the summer when the girls are with their dad.

    We're thinking somewhere in the Southeast. He threw North Carolina out there, and I actually vacationed there once with a friend and her family in high school, and I loved it. I would go back. HOWEVER, ever since I was in 8th grade and read Gone with the Wind, I've wanted to go to Charleston, S.C.

    Does anyone know if there are good spots in South Carolina -- not in Charleston, but on a beach -- that has rentals and such? We want a house on the beach. The quieter and more-removed the better. We want to be able to drive into Charleston for a day (perhaps more), but we don't want to be IN the city.

    I just did a quick internet search, and it made me want to take a nap. So I'm asking for help. You know, so I can have more specific fantasies.

    Then, in April of 2009, I want to take the kids to Spain.

    * A friend of mine who was at Future Firm with me last summer made it her mission in life to find out how much vacation time attorneys actually took. We all have heard that young associates are told they get 4 weeks, but then just get a check at the end of the year for the 4 weeks' that they could never take. My Friend the Researcher found that was not the case at our destination-firm. Every single person she spoke with took every single DAY of their vacation. Therefore, nay-saying is not welcome.

      Check out www.yelp.com and just enter the zip code you want to go to.

      Locals review stuff... very good way to plan a vacation.

      This isn't the beach (or S.C.), but we have friends (w/kids the age of yours) who LOVE LOVE LOVE Asheville, N.C. and go there every spring break. Lots to do, but still very relaxed time in the mountains.

      You should consider Hilton Head--south of Charleston and between Beaufort, SC and Savannah, GA. Lots to do.
