Beautiful Vacations In Blackpool - Articles Surfing

You know what they say - you've never been to England if you've never been to Blackpool. Of course, locals in every single town around Britain will claim the same thing about their towns. Blackpool, however, is one of the very few towns that actually has any right to claim such a thing - and for good reason.

It's Not Black But It Does Have a Pool.
Blackpool is Britain's most popular holiday destination. Whether you're looking for a place to relax in or a town to paint red, Blackpool can give you exactly what you need and more. Take a leisurely walk around Stanley Park and enjoy the horticultural and wildlife marvels. Who knows? You might make a squirrel friend or two.

Take a ride on the famous Blackpool trams. The track runs for 12 miles down the Promenade, but don't worry, it won't take you anywhere near London. Get your freak on and dance under the world's largest disco ball. Grab a Cosmopolitan while you're at it. Visit Blackpool's Sandcastle water park where it's always summer, even in the middle of winter. Don't forget to wear those thermal coats over your bikini if you head outside, though. Frozen buns are not a Blackpool delicacy.

With so much to offer, Blackpool is not a place you visit for a day. For the traveler on a budget, you're better off spending on Blackpool's many attractions rather than some posh (as the Brits like to say) hotel you only sleep in. Clean, comfortable, and most importantly cheap at only '30-'40 a night, a Blackpool guest house is the perfect place to rest your weary head after a day of exploring.

If Hairdryers Are Safe at the Strathmore, So Are You!
Centrally located along Lonsdale Road, the Strathmore Blackpool guest house is within walking distance of Blackpool's most popular attractions. It is conveniently near the major clubs and pubs so you don't have to walk - no, stagger - too far if you had one too many cocktails after dancing the night away under that disco ball. All rooms are centrally heated in this Blackpool guest house, which should do wonders to your hangover the morning after. Each room also has a useless colored television (useless because you'll be too busy exploring the town to watch television), a coffee maker, and a tea maker (if there's such a thing). Reduced rates are offered to children, possibly based on size - the tinier, the better. Hairdryers and flat irons are available upon request, possibly because they can fit in your suitcase, so nice try.

The Good Life - Living in a Bar
The Hinsford Blackpool guest house is also centrally located and is very close to Pleasure Beach and the town center. There's a licensed bar in the guest house itself so you don't have to stagger at all after those cocktails. You can just have the barman escort you upstairs to your room where you can throw up in your en suite bathroom. It might be a bit embarrassing to see him in the morning though, as he will also be serving you your full English breakfas. But look at the bright side - the breakfast is free.

When You're Only Pretending to Be on Vacation
The Lynmoore Blackpool guest house is also two minutes away from all the great Blackpool attractions. Aside from the usual coffee (and tea) maker, hairdryer, iron, English breakfast, and en suite bathrooms, this Blackpool guest house offers Internet access. So even if you're on vacation, you can still get some work done.

As a downside, these Blackpool guest houses only accept couples or families. Singles are turned away at the door and sent to where they belong - in posh hotel rooms where they could actually invite the barman or barwoman in.
