For Relaxing- Any atoll in the South Pacific (Bora bora is nice
For fun- hmmm....California or Honolulu
For Skiing- Utah, Salt Lake City. a bautiful area with lots of snow
For Quiet Contemplation- The Grand Canyon, or Alaska
For lost of underwater scenery and swimming- Northern Caribbean/Bahamas
For a unique island experience that's easy on the budget- South/Eastern Caribbean, especially Barbados and St. Lucia.
My Favorites from Each Region-
The Mainland- Sand Diego, and Alaska (Alaska is breathtaking
The Pacific- Bora Bora and the Hawaiian Islands
Asia- The Maldives
The Caribbean- the Virgian Islands- Not too many people and breathtakingly gorgeous, Barbados comes in second
South America- I dunno, never been there
Africa- Never been there, sorry!
My opinions either come from personal experience, experience of a family member, or from destination I like in travel mags (Maldives)
