Radiojerry's Vacation Planner
Created 07-26-2011 - Last update 02-16-2014


This page is designed to assist in finding vacation destinations. For point-to-point travel to and from your vacation destination please visit for scheduled transportation via train, bus, ferry and airlines.

Some sites may appear both on the travel and vacation pages. For example, the ferry to Bald Head Island offers scheduled service but Bald Head Island itself can also serve as a vacation destination and it can only be reached by ferry or private boat. Also, this site is adventure-oriented concentrating primarily on sightseeing excursions and cruises, using some form of transport (i.e. airplane, boat, train, bus).
