my favorite summer vacation getaways

Good Essays
Have you ever been on a vacation outside of the United States? Vacations can be very enjoyable, fun, and memorable. There are many different vacation destinations that attract visitors and tourists today. Two of my favorite vacations were during the summer months following my completion of fifth and sixth grade. When I was in fifth grade, our family vacationed at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. We went to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey the following year after I completed sixth grade. These destinations are similar in many ways but also have a lot of differences. The Atlantis Resort is located on the island of the Bahamas. You may have seen commercials advertising Atlantis on TV or maybe you have been there. While the Bahamas is not in the United States, it is located about 300 miles off the coast of Florida. In order to travel to Atlantis, you need to either take a plane or a boat. Our travel from New Jersey to the Bahamas took about three hours by plane. This was my first time in a foreign country and the airport was the first sign of how different the Bahamas is from the United States. We had to walk from the runway to the airport terminal and instead of having air condition the airport had ceiling fans. Our cab ride to the resort gave me a chance to see beaches and the most beautiful blue ocean waters. On the grounds of the resort, there are many different hotels and various places to stay. Some people even own houses, or condos that are located near Atlantis! The resort is surrounded by aquariums filled with sharks, stingrays, and various seal life. Several times throughout the day, the Atlantis workers feed the sharks and stingrays by hand for everybody to see. When I arrived I could not believe what I saw. There were eleven pools and water slides everywhere I looked! Atlantis has various things to do for all ages. For example, there is a dolphin cay, where you can go in the middle of the ocean and have a chance to

    My Summer Vacation My summer started on the day I graduated. At first it was a little sad to me because it had meant that my high school years were over and I wouldn’t be able to see all my friends as much anymore. I soon figured out that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Yes it meant that I wouldn’t be seeing my friends as much anymore but I turned 18 six days after graduation. I had more freedom than I knew what to do with. For the first month of summer I swam…
