Where in the USA should 39-year-old men hang out?

    My old college pals do a little reunion every other year. Four to six of us meet somewhere in the US, rent a house and just hang out for a three or four days. Eating. Drinking. Playing pool. Gambling (if it's close). Maybe some other outdoor activities.

    So far we've done Tahoe, Breckenridge, CO, and Vegas.

    We live in California (2), Ohio (3), Atlanta and Chicago, so I'd like someplace that will be relatively easy for everyone to get to. I'd also like a place that's not going to be disgustingly hot in the middle of the July (Yes, we ignored that criteria with Vegas.) Preferably, it would also be a place in a resort-ish area where there is a good selection of rental homes. (We don't want to just stay in separate hotel rooms.)

    I'm thinking there must be places like this in this Michigan-Wisconsin-Minnesota areas, but I really know very little about those places, so I'm looking for some suggestions. The nearer to an aiport the better. Proximity to a casino wouldn't hurt either, because we're degenerates. Near a minor league ballpark would also be cool.

    By the way, we're a bunch of 38- and 39-year-old guys, so we're not interested in a big bar and party scene. We just want to hang out together and have something to do.

    Also open for suggestions elsewhere in the country.

    Thanks in advance for your ideas.

    Pick a college town and do a football weekend. I highly recommend anywhere in the SEC except Starkville.

    He said in the middle of July, AQB.
    If you can do it a little earlier, Bobcat, what about Omaha in June during the College World Series? You've got gambling across the river in Council Bluffs; the baseball with the CWS; a college atmosphere that's fun without being over the top; and there's got to be plenty of people renting homes in the area.
    The food in Omaha ain't bad, either. There's some good steakhouses there.
    It's also a fairly compact area. The airport isn't far from downtown and it's not hard to find your way to and from Rosenblatt.

    Only if they wear trenchcoats and bring lots of candy for the kids.

    Come to the Northwest. Very temperate in July, beautiful and different from where everyone lives. Go to VRBO.com (vacation house rentals) and get a pimped out house in the forest somewhere. You can hike, raft, whatever. And you're never too far from a tribal casino.

    That's Ten Sleep, Wyo., population 304. Slow down and don't blink, or you'll miss it.

    SAL-UTE! [/HeeHaw]


    And I'm guessing central Mexico would not be a popular choice.

    Hmmm ... Alaska might be interesting at that time of year.
