Next spring, my wife and I will be celebrating 50 years of marriage. We are trying to come up with some ideas for a truly grand vacation. We would like the kind of luxury that we are notca in the habit of experiencing. We looked at a couple of Ritz Carlton resorts in CA (Half Moon Bay and Laguna Beach) and they sound nice but we are looking for some other ideas to consider. We will have over 450,000 points to spend on the trip. We will also probably go to a large city to a city hotel (Renaisance, FS Marriott, etc.).
We prefer cool climates to hot. I am open to all kinds of suggestions that are within an eight hour flight (non stop) from Washington DC.
Thanks for any ideas you can offer.
