Chronicle poll results: Summer vacations

We asked our readers what their ideal summer vacation is. Here's what they said.

Last week, the Chronicle asked its readers in an electronic poll the following question: “What is your ideal summer vacation?” Of the 136 people who responded, 37% said “beach”; 13% said “wilderness”; 9% said “city”; and 41% said “it depends.” Comments were submitted by 36 people. A few follow.

We like some beach and some historical tours.


I would like to enjoy the aromas of flowers, fields, animals, air without have them
screened out with my N95.

If all were well, a cruise but if not, quiet time at home.

Israel would be my favorite place to vacation.

Prefer just to visit out-of-town adult children.

Hiking in the mountains.

Being somewhere with my wife to enjoy together.

Wilderness recharges like nothing else, for me.

Chautauqua Institution!

A week with children and grands at a beach house in Outer Banks, North Carolina.

If the mountains were on the list, I would have picked that.

Ocean City, New Jersey is the best. An old school beach town!

Anything with my family.

Israel and Australia. Covers spiritual, family, beach and history.

My ideal summer vacation is to stay home with no responsibilities and maybe some day trips.

I love hiking in the U.S. state parks. They are all beautiful and have so much to offer. PJC
