Blackpool might not win any awards for its sunshine, but it certainly gets an “A” for its unconventional culture and vibrancy. Each September, the town's promenade turns into an extravaganza, with neon lighting all the way up the coast's five-mile stretch, until November. Blackpool has its own amusement and water parks, which will entertain adults and children alike. Once you've picked up your Enterprise Rent-A-Car vehicle in Vicarage Lane, visit the Victorian North Pier for free rides, or watch a 4D movie at Blackpool Tower. There are bus stops all along Vicarage Lane on Haws side, and the branch is a mere two kilometres from Blackpool International Airport. Fans of the sinister will love the dungeon exhibit beneath Blackpool Tower, but if you're a dancer, the rococo ballroom should not be missed. Sandcastle Waterpark is an indoor complex, so Blackpool's less than welcoming climate won't keep you away from the slides. The park's cabana has its own private lounge and hot tub. None can say they've truly experienced Blackpool unless they have visited some of its famous pubs. Take Irish dance lessons at the traditional river dance pub, Shenanigans, but don't forget your designated driver. Catch a burlesque or cabaret show at Funny Girls, or enjoy live music at Roxy's.
