Totally Geeked Out Vacations!

4. Renaissance Fairs

Renaissance Fair goers are trailblazers in the world of geekery. Along with Civil War re-enactors, they basically invented cosplay, and if you went any further on the nerd scale, you'd probably just morph into a pocket protector and thick rimmed glasses. The great thing about Ren fairs is that they are EVERYWHERE these days, and just a quick google search will more than likely find one in your area. Many even go as far to stage mock sword fights and jousting competitions, you can eat meat off of an enormous Turkey leg and cheer as armored men battle with maidens dancing in between, and all without any of the horrible things from the Middle Ages, like the Bubonic Plague. We promise, there will be absolutely no Bubonic Plague.
