    I live not too far from Blackpool and go a dozen times a year when the weather is nice.

    It's not a great place, it is only worth going for the sun really. There are a tonne of arcades, mostly 2p slot machines however. Blackpool Tower is pretty decent if you've never done it. Sea Life centre isn't worth it, cost too much for the quality of it. Waxworks I personally haven't been, but I have heard good things. The beach isn't nearly as bad as people make out, it is clean, sand is okay, water is fine.

    Nightlife... I wouldn't be able to tell you. Only been out around Preston which is about 15 miles away. A really good place for clubs and bars which is very close to Blackpool is Poulton. Give it a search on Maps. I heard it is meant to be great.
