Do you go out of your way just to be pedantic for the sake of it? It's just a fun thread about where people like to holiday and you try to turn it into Question Time!
As a kid i loved Morecambe, like a little Blackpool but less fussy.
Love Torquay (my second home), Polperro in Cornwall (always try and get down for a week in December, lovely at chrimbo), like Skeg and Cleethorpes for a quick day out with little travelling and Blackpool for the illuminations just for the day.
Abroad...Benidorm (if you've not been don't slag it, it's not the Blackpool of the Costas, the old town is fab. Cyprus is also a fav.
BTW...I didn't realise SF had so many snobs! I bet the ones saying Skeg Vegas is this, that and the other never venture further than their back garden!
Yes it has a high proportion of Jeremy Kyle types, but at least these 'types' are giving their kids a holiday, which is more than i can say for many families who think they're above the Skeg/Cleethorpes.
Give a kid a bucket and spade when the sun is shining and it doesn't matter to them whether they're in Blackpool or the Bahamas!
