List RulesThe most important things to you when you look for where to go on vacation

Everyone has a different idea of what makes the perfect vacation, whether you're looking to get away on your own or with your family in tow. This list of the most important things in a vacation destination takes all the most important things to consider when picking a vacation destination and puts them in one list that can be voted on my other travelers.

What are the things you look for first when you're thinking of that perfect vacation? Do you consider the destination with the best climate, the best party cities, the vacation spot with the best beaches or the best recreational facilities, or is choosing a city for a family friendly vacation your top priority? All these aspects of vacation planning come into play, but it's sometimes hard to say what the best vacations have in common.

If the qualities your ideal vacation spot aren't listed, be sure to add them so other travelers can add them to the list of things a vacation spot needs.
