Well, we're going to find out.
Southwest is having a 48-hour sale, today is the last day, for travel Sept. 9 through Nov. 18. The rates are $30 each way for flights as far as 400 miles, $60 for 400 to 750 miles and $90 for more than 750 miles.
We considered a few destinations: San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Washington DC, and New Orleans.
San Francisco is our choice. Airfare to San Jose was $60 less per person vs. flying directly into San Francisco. We planned to rent a car, anyway, so we'll make the 50-minute drive and save ourselves some cash. The money could be better spent on important things - like FOOD.
We planned a trip to San Francisco last year, but cancelled last minute because we decided to buy our house. This trip's itinerary will be similar. We'll see the sights in San Francisco, visit Muir Woods, Yosemite, and if there's time we'll see Napa, too. We're planning a six day vacation so I think we'll be able to squeeze it all in. That is if we can sway ourselves away from the all the excellent eateries.
We have four months to research and firm up plans. I'm excited.
