We're going August 30 - September 6, 2008. Two of us for the whole time, with my husband's cousin and her husband joining us for the first weekend and Labor Day (we hope). I really want to see Rainbow Row and the Aquarium, maybe the Fort, but other than that, mostly the beach and the private pool at the house at which we are staying. ($1200 for the week!)
