There is a difference between where YOU want to go on vacation and what you think is a POPULAR destination that many people say they would like to go. But they are not mutually exclusive.

My dream vacation since 1993 has been Jamaica. That destination was on the 'popular' list. I finally did get to go, but it was not my 'dream vacation.' At least it wasn't the vision I had for many years, so it is still on the top of my list for places I want to go on vacation -- but with my wife this time.

Name a famous vacation location was our Survey Said question last week, and here are the most popular places, according to Minnesotans, who responded.

  1. Hawaii
  2. Disneyland/Disneyworld
  3. Mexico (Cancun)
  4. Caribbean (Jamaica, Bahamas, Kokomo (sorry, I just had to)
  5. Yellowstone
  6. Paris
  7. Las Vegas
  8. Wisconson Dells
  9. Alaska
  10. Nashville

Others that were mentioned but didn't make the Top 10:

Glacier National Park, Fenway Stadium, The Grand Canyon, New York, Mall of America, Virgin Islands, Ireland, and Wally World. I guess real or imaginary was never specified -- so well played.

Maybe you've thought about it and have no idea. Yet. That's okay. Something will come to you. Plus, if you win Dream Getaway, you can go whenever you want.
