Summer is the perfect time to find yourself a great and comfortable place to unwind for a couple of weeks. This year has been pretty busy with excitement, so why don’t you relax and enjoy a more steady pace of life? We here at Nintendojo will help you out by providing the best vacation spots for a reasonable price. So, put your sunglasses on and rub your sunblock in, we’re going to find you a perfect vacation spot!
Appearances: Wii Fit, Wii Sports Resort, Pilotwings Resort, Mario Kart 7.
If you’re looking for something traditional, you cannot go wrong with a place like Wuhu Island. This little paradise provides a great variety in landscape, from sandy beaches to chilly mountains. You can spend your days just laying down under the sun, but if you’re the active type, that’s where Wuhu Island really shines. Skydiving, archery, basketball, bowling, canoeing, cycling, golf, power cruising, Mario Karting, table tennis and even Frisbee activities for your dog– you name it, Wuhu has got it. Want to fly a plane, but have no experience or license? That’s fine, we don’t mind. Wuhu Island is not here to judge you, but to provide the best vacation experience possible.
Appearances: Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, Mario Power Tennis, Fortune Street, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Perhaps Wuhu Island doesn’t sound very exciting. You want something safe, affordable, yet a little bit on the odd side of things. Isle Delfino might scratch that particular itch. This dolphin-shaped island resort provides just as much local variety as Wuhu Island, but also gives you a chance to experience one of Mario’s most underrated adventures. Oh, you can just smell the excitement! I recommend staying at the hotel on Sirena Beach; it has the best ocean view out of all of them. You might also want to try Peach Beach. If you’re lucky, you might even see Princess Peach herself!
Appearances: The Wonderful 101
Now I know what you’re thinking. “Why would I go on a vacation to the city?” Well, my friend, something tells me you’ve never been to Blossom City. The home of Wonderful 101 leader Wonder-Red has infinite skyscrapers and all the colors of the rainbow. You think you know scale? Well, you know nothing until you’ve visited the top floor of one of the many skyscrapers Blossom City has. It takes your breath away! And I mean literally, so don’t forget your oxygen mask. Imagine if somebody took a kid’s Lego playset, smooshed a bunch of multi-flavored ice cream on top of it, and then dropped it in a bowl full of M&Ms. That’s Blossom City for you.
Donkey Kong Island
Appearances: Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, Donkey Kong 64, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, DK: King of Swing, Mario Tennis series, Super Smash Bros. series
You know why I love Donkey Kong Island? You can never mistake that giant gorilla head for some other island. Donkey Kong’s home just oozes with adventure. Are you up for some thrills? DK Island will provide all four elements full of danger! Just don’t forget that this place is pretty exotic and full of many dangerous wild animals. You should also honor the way things work on DK Island. No matter what you do, you do not steal bananas, you do not eat bananas. In fact, I highly advise to not even look at bananas for more than five seconds. Donkey Kong is a very hot-tempered fella, if you know what I’m saying.
Appearances: No More Heroes, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
In case you’re a hot-tempered kind of guy yourself, you might want to experience a very underrated Californian town, Santa Destroy. I hear it’s especially pleasant if you like to participate in assassination jobs. If you want some peace and quiet, the town still does a pretty decent job of offering a safe, yet entertaining environment. Surprisingly enough, the crime rate is almost non-existent, thanks to all the organized killings UAA and K-Entertainment are providing. You’re almost completely safe to walk into your local Burger Suplex, take a bite out of a juicy burger, and not die in the process. I don’t know about you, but I’m sold.
