While writing a proposal at work today I needed to mention a list of things and within that list were multi-part items. It seems like replacing the comma with a semi-colon in this situation would make the sentence easier to understand, but is it correct usage?
With standard punctuation this could get confusing:
Some of my favorite things to do are camping, playing football and baseball, watching Laurel and Hardy Movies, and traveling.
Proposed alternative. Is this acceptable usage?
Some of my favorite things to do are camping; playing football and baseball; watching Laurel and Hardy Movies; and traveling.
