Aries can only take so much sitting still; of course, everyone needs to do some form of relaxation, but after a few days lazing around, there better be a variety of adventure activities on the to-do-list. Get away from the city buzz and take the family to Bear Mountain for some hiking. Kent in Connecticut is filled with history, camping, kayaking, visits to the vineyards and much more. Or like Aries gal Sarah Jessica Parker, go on an adventure trip exploring and taking in the delights of Mexico.
Lazy days, good company, home comforts and scrumptious cuisine will keep Taurus’ feet on the ground and a smug smile on their face. Take a trip to visit Hyde Park in Duchess County where President Franklin D. Roosevelt lived and be awed by the many mansions in the area. Visit the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, Westchester. Or go to where funnyman Jerry Seinfeld likes to spend his vacations, at his home away from home, Long Island.
When the Gemini twins are not engaging in conversation they love to sit back and people watch. Go on a mystery tour to somewhere that provides incidences that supply a year full of unbelievable storytelling. New Jersey is a treasure trove of attractions ranging from beaches, bird watching, 18 different lighthouses, state parks, and for those who are feeling lucky, there’s gambling in Atlantic City. If you can afford to mix with the highflyers, walk in the footsteps of Donald Trump, and go and play gold at Mamaroneck, NY, at the Winged Foot Golf club.
Sun, sea and sand are just what the doctor ordered for this water sign. Exclusive hotels and lavish resort-style accommodations, but also, somewhere laidback so you can get away from the stress of the normal everyday hustle and bustle. Throw in a world standard spa treatment room and you’re happy. Hang out at the Hamptons and if the sun gets too hot to handle, take a trip to the shops or indulge in a spa treatment or two. Along with Cancerian, Lindsay Lohan’s family, taking in the sun and sites on Miami Beach is another Cancerian favorite Location.
Luxury-loving Leo looks for vacation hot spots that exude class and opulence. It also helps if there’s more than a scattering of A-listers buying up big in the shops. And if the paparazzi are hot on their trail, all the better. If it's not featured in latest and greatest magazines, it's not for Leo. Of course, the Hamptons immediately come to mind, East Hampton, but let’s not forget Vegas – all that glitz and excitement lights up a Leo’s eyes. Or go for a vacation where Leo-gal Kim Catrall’s Sex and the City character spends her time, at Malibu.
Virgo may seem like the innocent type, but in reality, under that not a hair out of place façade, they like to soak up the ambiance and history of a location by day and hit the fast and furious nightlife after the sun goes down. Atlantic City provides plenty of fun and excitement day and night. Or, in Connecticut, there’s plenty of shopping, dining and spa treatments at Foxwood’s Casino or Mochegan Sun resorts. If money is no object, hop on a plane and visit Monaco where Virgo-girl Beyonce and Jay-Z have been seen on vacation.
Exquisite food to tempt the taste buds, places to indulge in some cultural history, a hammock to spend lazy and romantic afternoons and a Libra is content as a pussycat in the Sun. Take a trip down memory lane and visit Woodstock to get lost in the ambiance of art and music. Or visit Peters Valley Craft Center in NJ., to enjoy the variety of arts as well as learn some new skills. Or, you can always spend your vacation like Libran Kelly Ripa does, and chill out in the Bahamas.
It’s nothing but the best for Scorpio. Dancing the night away at nightclubs is a must-do-activity to release stress, and unleashing the credit cards in stores that sell everything you want and nothing you need is the best form of therapy for Scorpio. Check into the MGM Grand on the Vegas strip for an unforgettable vacation, visit the golden sands of Palm Beach, Fl., or stay closer to home and be a tourist in your own city. Or visit the places Scorpio Hillary Rodham Clinton has vacationed, like Jamaica.
Sagittarians are worldly beings. For a vacation location to blip on your radar, make it exciting, different, interesting and worthy of your superior intelligence. These philosophical and celestial beings enjoy star watching at night, and being active through the day. Experiencing and learning new things is high on the Sag list. Enter a space of bliss with the Tibetan monks by visiting or spending a week-long retreat at the Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca, NY. If you’re cashed up, travel around the world like Sag-girl Tyra Banks does and vacation anywhere from Italy to Sydney.
Do they go on vacation? When they do, class-conscious Capricorns go for quality and value. Taking a vacation is a big deal for Capricorn. It takes a lot of energy and organization just to get away from the office, and even when you do, the computer or at least the tablet, is a standard piece of luggage. Being out of touch means being out of control and that is not likely to happen. Rent a five-star property at somewhere like Bridgehampton, that’s far enough to get away from it all and close enough to get involved in the high life. Or like Cap girl Katie Couric spend your vacations in Europe.
Privacy-seeking Aquarians look to hang out at places that pride themselves on a reputation for guarding the privacy of their guests. This can be anything from booking a rustic cabin in Pennsylvania or escaping to the Pocono Mountains to indulge in anything from water activities, tennis, horseback riding, shows concerts, and of course, shopping! If none of this sounds appealing, follow in Aquarian Paris Hilton’s footsteps and book a vacation to the happening location of Hawaii.
This sensitive water sign seeks locations that represent heaven on earth. When recharging your batteries, it’s the soothing sound of water lapping on the beach, or somewhere that’s mystical, a good supply of booze and someone who's open to serving you every minute, even if you do have to pay for it. Travel to the top end of NY to witness the awesome energy of Niagara Falls, or take a cruise to Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. Like the movie Piscean Queen Latifah starred in, Last Holiday, anything can happen on vacation!
