Would you travel to the Gulf coast this summer? Zika concerns.

    @TapDancer: Yes, I think its not just a black or white should I go or not (for US locations not the CDC identified places). If it was a family reunion or special wedding or something like that, where you felt the need to be there I would totally grab the bug spray and go. But since your just going for fun and to relax and it wouldn't be a huge deal to cancel now, its probably not worth the stress.

    @sandy: Where are you going? We were down in Orlando last month and saw ZERO mosquitos. They are much closer to the swamps/water/south than we are. Up in the panhandle, we have a ton!

    @TapDancer: FWIW, we went to San Diego recently for our babymoon and it was wonderful! And not a mosquito to be seen. I don't know where in TX you are, but the flight prices to San Diego from Houston weren't bad at all. Just in case you want to change course and go somewhere else

    @MrsSCB: So glad to hear that - San Diego is our definite next choice for a replacement trip! Was just researching this morning in fact. Flights from Austin are easy/inexpensive as well. Thought a bit about going to San Fran/Northern Cal, but I'm really looking for some sunshine

    We're still vacationing to the gulf coast this summer. But I live in Louisiana, so it's not like the mosquito risk is any less staying home.

    @TapDancer: We loooved San Diego! We were only there Sat. until Tues. but we had an awesome time. The weather was gorgeous, the food was amazing. We stayed in Coronado, but with a rental car you can easily travel all over--downtown San Diego, La Jolla, etc. Definitely recommend it!
