Legal Blog Watch Vacation Planner: Destinations to Avoid

Today is officially the first day of summer, and, no doubt, lawyers everywhere are thinking about planning their annual summer vacations. With many of us being unemployed -- in some cases merely a bit underemployed -- the temptation may be to try to find a good deal on a trip to a less-popular vacation spot.

Here at LBW, we want to make sure you don't get suckered. So, from TopTenz, here are 10 places you most certainly do not want to spend a week this summer. Or even an hour, I'd imagine. (Hat tip to Lowell Steiger.)

To this list, I would like to add one: Los Angeles. I just hate L.A. There are lots of good reasons to feel that way. Add Manny Ramirez to the mix, and it seems like a no-brainer to me.

Back in my BigLaw days, there was a partner who was (in)famous for going on vacation with his family every year, and receiving a daily FedEx package filled with the contents of his inbox (at the time, still a physical object, often composed of wood or metal), which he spent most of his waking hours dealing with. Wherever you go, you're not that important. Turn off your BlackBerry and go swim with the dolphins. Or, if you ignore our advice and go to Bubbly Creek, take a dip with the bloodworms. Buen viaje!
