Most Entertaining Day Location

So today I'm taking the family to the River walk located in Downtown San Antonio. Officially it will be our second time going (the first time we went we had just got here) so I'm looking forward to having a good time with my wife and son. While I was thinking about what we were going to do when we got there, i asked myself,
what are the top 5 places Ive been to in the day time? If you read my profile, you know I did time in the military, that time allowed me to see a lot of the world. So, in order from OK to must see Ive ranked the top 5 locations Ive been to and hopefully when you travel it will help you.

5. Orlando, Florida. For the family man, you can take the clan to Disneyland and spend hours there and not even notice. (At least until your feet start throbbing from the constant walking) They have rides for the young at heart and for the Roller Coaster Junkie. And if its night life you're looking for, Disney even has a grown and sexy bar/night club on the grounds . For the shopper in you, they have a huge outlet located right off of I-95 so you can shop till you drop.

4. Paris, France Even though Virginia coined it, I honestly believe that Paris is for lovers. Its artsy, Historic, and they have some of the best cuisines Ive ever tasted. The nightlife is electric and for the love of god bring a camera. Everywhere you go there is a photo-op. The only know on Paris that i can remember is that if you don't speak the language, then you're pretty much S.O.L. . I convinced some friends that while in Paris we should eat like Parisians , (I mean you can get a Big Mac anywhere) so we get all did up and get a recommendation from the front desk of a really nice 4 star restaurant located near the club scene. We get in the spot and the waitress who's in charge of us rattles off the menu in French. Of course we have no idea what it was she was saying..Parlez vous francais , Parlez vous francais, she kept repeating. All we knew was, chicken please. Needless to say "Ugly American" came out, and typically this means the standard "In English" was asked by one of our friends. This prompted our waitress to say" In Francais"...At that moment, we all looked at each other, the epitome of young sexy the 5 of us were, we all got up, and left. We ended up at a pizza joint. The moral of this story is , if you go to France, brush up on your french and you'll have a blast. For my Wine lovers, out side of Italy, you wont find a better place.

3. Amsterdam Holland Never Have I been somewhere where I honestly thought to myself I'm on hell on Earth. This, by the way is meant in a good way. From the free spirited mentality to weed and Sex, to the way that many , nationalities (some of which whom cant stand each other) oogle whenever they walk the historic Red Light district, this place has it all. If its artsy you crave, they have the Rembrandt district, which has a museum as well as a theater for plays . If its nightlife, no matter what you're into, just go down near Liecstere Square( i probably butchered the name) and you can find R&B, Swing, Metal, Punk, Laid Back, Gay, you name it bars all scrunched together. If you're a history buff, the Anne Frank exhibit will leave you speechless. If you're single and want to let it all hang out the Red Light district has it all. There you can go to a coffee shop , get high, go catch a Sex Show, (live sex) and try your luck at the club scene. If by some chance your luck isn't so good, the over 1200 pieces of eye candy located up and down the street in the windows will better your odds of going to bed happy. Oh by the way, did i mention the hemp museum for my bud-heads. This place is unreal. I literally had to tell myself after 4 days its time to go. I went 3 straight days there with a grand total of 4 hours of sleep. Yes you read that correctly 4 hours in 3 days. I partied hard and when i got back home i crashed

2. London England. OK though its not quite as glamorous as Amsterdam London has that aire of History thats so Powerful that honestly, its hard not to love. Big Ben, The Castles, Trafalgar Square , all the culture make this place a mega for tourism. Shopping at Harold's alone would take my wife 6 hours to accomplish. Bring a camera, and be ready to snap it every 15 seconds. Madame Tussauds wax museum, which they constantly update with actors and famous people will take your breath away. The only know on London, is the weather. It rains quite often. And in the morning, good luck trying to drive through the fog

1. San Diego California. This was a tough choice for me, but when it was all said and done it became a no brainer. San Diego has everything for everyone. The Gas Lamp District located by the baseball stadium,m in downtown has some of the best bars Ive ever been to. You can crawl from bar to bar and stuck there for hours before you even notice. If shopping yours thing, head up to Mission Valley Mall or Fashion Valley and explore all the deals and specials . For the kid in you, sea world and the San Diego Zoo provide a very safe and happy environment for kids as well as parents to look and explore the different animals (the zoo is kinda expensive though, but well worth it) If the beach is your thing, head up to the North side, or Pacific Beach and you will not want to leave. The weather is a 85 in the day and 72 in the night. Its always gorgeous there. If there's one knock on Sn Diego, its the ares I didn't cover. National City, Chula Vista and La Mesa. The crime rates a little high in these parts so try to avoid them if possible..And despite the rumor, TJ is a blast. Mr A's is probably the most electric bar ive ever visited.

Those receiving Honorable Mention are Sydney Aus., Singapore, and Vancouver B.C..
