I figured this would be an interesting question to ask to see how many unique answers there are. I know the most common would be something like Hawaii, Las Vegas or some island in the Caribbean, but does anyone have any interesting or unique ideas/plans?

 

Myself I would actually go on an extended vacation. I'd go about getting a furnished aparment in NYC for 2 months, sometime in the summer so it would be pretty warm there and so if I won soon it wouldn't be a quick vacation as to draw a lot of attention to me. For some reason large cities relax me (I love how active they are) and being there for 2 months would allow me to walk around and enjoy the city (have never been there but have always wanted to) and since I'd be living in a somewhat small, rented apartment and be traveling back to Texas via a plane I wouldn't really be able to purchase anything outlandish so it'd give me a period of not making big purchases. Plus I'd be staying in the Clinton/west midtown area, which from looking at things is a good area since it'd would be close to many things I'd like, so that's less money on cabs.

        Monterey, California, all summer every summer.

        See a game in every major league stadium, and some minor league ones.

        Spend at least one St. Patrick's Day in South Boston!

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Yea around October/November I was thinking if I won it would be California. As much as I would want to go to NYC I would have to go somewhere much warmer to enjoy my winnings. As for sports I think I would have to end up going to every BCS game next year for college football and possibly the big rivalries in different states.

                  ttech10,

                  "I figured this would be an interesting question to ask to see how many unique answers there are. I know the most common would be something like Hawaii, Las Vegas or some island in the Caribbean, but does anyone have any interesting or unique ideas/plans?"

                  Good call! Now we just need someone to mention a Caribbean island!

                  To each their own, but I've always wondered about jackpot winners going to Vegas. What do they think they're going to win in Vegas after habingwon a lottery jackpot? That, and if any casino gets word they've won a jackpot they won't have a moment's peace.

                  I don't know, maybe people want that kind of attention.

                    My first vacation would be to Greece with my girlfriend and family!

                    And to kind of add on to your post Coin Toss, I don't get why people like Michael Jordan go to gamble in Vegas. All you have to do is Google Jordan and you will find out that he has lost millions upon millions of dollars gambling. Do you ever think it has crossed his mind that those millions of dollars could have helped out so many people around the world?

                    And for someone like him who is worth one billion dollars, have much satisfaction would he get by putting down $250k  and winning $500k? It's like big deal you just won $500k which would be like the equivalent of winning a penny for him.  Vegas is fun for the average joes like us who go with $500 to gamble hoping to win big.

                      Southern Calfiornia for sure, I'd probably look into renting an expensive apartment out there for a year or two...

                      Then I'd probably look to buy a house in upstate NY--it's aboslutely beautiful up there in the spring/summer time...

                        Typical, usual, mundane, boring, cliche, or whatever you want to call it, we're going to Hawaii. I've been there 3 times, have seen Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island, and I'd like to go back to Oahu and see some of the other islands. It would be my wife's first time there.

                        Then we're going to spend some time with her family in Shanghai. By time, I mean weeks. While there we'll probably spend a few days in Hangzhou, which is a couple of hours outside of Shanghai.

                          Since I seem to be working part time these days , There are a few places I've been to while working that I wouldn't mind seeing as a tourist I guess you'd call it.   I just know where all the tourist traps in these places are  already .

                          Scotland ( My Birthplace )
                          England
                          Brazil ( Rio )
                          Holland ( Amsterdam and Rotterdam)
                          Singapore ( they can keep their canes though)
                          France ( Marsielles ) (SP )  and Cannes. 
                          Spain (  Ibiza  and Palma )
                          Thailand
                          Guam ( it's not as bad as it used to be )
                          Russia
                          Ukraine
                          Romania
                          Greece ( Athens )
                          Switzerland ( Zurich )

                          Just a few I wouldn't mind seeing as a vacationer.

                              Hmm.. Eventhough I would try and claim anon. I would get out of town just in case.....I would probably go to Alaska...where I can be in cities if I want and in the wilderness if I want.....Pretty hard for a camera crew to follow you into some of those places...But If that was too cold then maybe the Bahamas or Puerto Rico.....mmmmmm Beautifull women and Rum!!!  Cheers
