American All Inclusive?
Posted: Jul 6, 2008 9:56 PM

Hey Gals,

Just wondering... is there such a thing as an american resort that's all inclusive? I'm not against traveling out of country, I'm actually Canadian, living in the states. hehe I was just thinking that I might be able to avoid the weak-dollar situation and maybe save money on flights while I'm at it.

Any ideas?

There is Club Med in Palm beach

 Lets not all get caught up in our wedding. Remember we should not only be planning for a our wedding but more so we should be planning for  our marriage. More so then fighting over shades of peach, tuxs, cake flavors and only god knows what else. Because the next morning it is over, guests are gone the flowers have died the cake well lets face it 1/2 of it was tossed out. Cinderella is still a maid, the limo is now a pumpkin And there is life to face ok after wild crazy monkey sex for 7 nights straight, lets not kid out selfs there are priorities After its all gone there's still bills to pay and a job to go back to

Here's a link to a state-by-state list of all-inclusive resorts.  I'm sure there's more than this, but it could be a start.

Hey Nalamienea. I am also a Canadian living in the states. I just got my green card a couple weeks ago which was very exciting. Where are you living and where are you from in Canada? I was from Vancouver and now live in Charleston, which is a big change.

Someone mentioned a Club Med. I think there is a couple in the USA.  I have vacationed at one in Mexico and one in the Caribbean and had a great time both trips.

Hello fellow ex-pat and neighbor. Yes Charleston SC! I thought I might be the only one on here who moved from west coast of Canada to east coast of USA. How long have you been here? Are you here on student visa?

Alright, you guys have got to check out this website to believe it!

http://www.caesarspoconoresorts.com/index.aspx

It's an all inclusive offering breakfast and dinner each day... but guys. LOL The rooms have heart shape hot tubs in them... swimming pools IN the suites, dry saunas IN the suites and fireplaces IN the bedrooms. LOL it cracks me up! It's just tacky and corny enough to be fun! And it's not that expensive, like $300/night. LOL I"m thinking seriously about it!

Hey!   Yell That's where we're honeymooning and they are anything but tacky...  They also give you horseback riding lessons as part of their honeymoon package and $100 to the casino if you book before the end of the year.  And it doesn't end up being $300 a night--closer to $425 for a weekend night.  Not everyone can afford to spend a small fortune on their honeymoon!

Carebearny - I wasn't making fun, I promise! I looked at it and Loved the design! I'm definitely not one of those people who can afford to spend a fortune, and I'm considering driving up from viriginia to this place! I meant the heart shaped tubs and the mirrors above the bed and stuff, they do it really over the top pretty, but you must admit.. there are people who haven't done it as well and it's been terribly tacky.  These guys look like they've done it up right though, which is what I meant by the comment. Don't be mad at me please! I'm excited you're going!  What time of year will you be there? What will the weather be like?

Tanis - nope, i'm not on a student visa. I was married to an americanrather briefly before this wedding and that's how I got my permanent visa.  I've been in the states for 8 years now, but in VA for about 3. How about you?

And btw - How are you dealing with the humidity! My god! lol

ok, and yes, I agree--not done right IS tacky but they do it right.  My friends and parents return every few years as a result.  The fall is the best time according to my parents but we're going the beginning of August so I expect nice, warm weather!  It's only 5-6 hours from me so I expect pretty much what we have here, just warmer!  The guy we booked with kept knocking money off--it was nice!  You also only need a $100 deposit, you can pay the rest when you get there.  If you do go tell them you want the "play and stay" package (the $100 to the casino OR it can be used in their gift shop at the resort!) and be sure to tell them it's your honeymoon--they give you extra free stuff!  And if you or FH work for a big company there may be more of a discount!  We're getting a 20% discount because I'm a teacher.  Finally--all those years of school paid off! We honestly didn't expect to take a honeymoon until I stumbled upon them again searching in the Poconos area...  The NY Fingerlakes Winery region is also a beautiful honeymoon choice but not all-inclusive....

I am hoping I will be married to my American rather not briefly, especially since I waited until I was 38 to do it! tick tick. I've been here 10 months and 6 days. I know this because its our ten month anniversary today and we married 6 days after I arrived.

The humidity is interesting. In Vancouver I didn't have a car so I had to ride a big stinky un-airconditioned bus, but now I have a car so that part is quite a bit nicer. I am still adjusting to the air conditioning 24-7 though. I am quite fortunate that I really like the sun, and although blonde and fair skinned it takes a bit to burn me. The shrimp and grits, on the other hand, are an adjustment!

i think the heart shaped tub sounds quite good myself. Our tub is perfect for a three year old who is about 3' tall. Unfortunately my husband is 6'8" so that doesn't workout. Big tub definitely on our honeymoon priority list!

carebear -that's great news about the weather!  I'm studying to be a teacher, do you think they'd extend the deal for me? hehe

Tanis - oh the southern cooking is just WEIRD to me. lol I don't think I've ever eaten so much deep fried food ever! And the iced tea freaked me out when I first came here! LOL

What do you do in Charleston?

Yes the food is very challenging! I haven't gained any weight since I got married, probably because I gained it while we were dating! Every trip to Charleston I probably gained 3 pounds and there were five trips so the math is pretty easy. I had to try all the local favourites - fried green tomatoes, she-crab soup, grouper, benne wafers, and of course pecan pie. My DH is from Louisiana and the food there is even bigger! We are continuously working on a food plan that we can both live with. The plan is working as my husband lost 14 pounds. WTF! He's not supposed to lose weight, I am! lol.

Right now I am not working. I had a condo in Vancouver that was 6 blocks from where the Olympic Village will be so it tripled in value after they announced the 2010 Olympics. I used that money to move, pay for immigration, buy a car (after 20 years on the bus I have a red mini cooper convertible!), pay for wedding stuff, buy furniture and the best part - take the first year off! I am an event coordinator by trade and would like to get back into that. Right now I am planning our second wedding. We are having a whole weekend for the families so its a bit of work.

So basically I am an unemployed event coordinator who is working out and planning her wedding while staying out of the kitchen. Not a bad life!

How much longer do you have until you are finished school. My mom is a teacher. Teachers rock!
