    Traveling, Part I.

    I'm looking for a cheap place in the US to fly to. I'm thinking of scheduling the trip for the end of November. Any suggestions? My budget is tight (<$350).

    Thanks, guys!

    $350 for the flight, or whole trip?

    I wanted to fly this time around, but I might be asking for too much.

    Go to the Bahamas. Sleep on the beach and do not eat.

    You may want to up your goal amount a tad. That is unless you can find a cheap flight to vegas and god knows their hotel rooms are cheap.

    depends how planned out you like your trip to be. if you did a 'name your own fare'- you'd get whatever flights priceline put you on, but at a discount.

    then, stay in a hostel (cheaper). OR couch surf (free).

    you could go to almost any large metro and get around via public transit rather cheaply. i usually pack a bag full of breakfast-y stuff (granola bars, etc) and eat 1 big meal a day, cutting the food budget down. its do-able on $350.
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.

    Honestly, I'm not looking for a really fancy experience. I'm talking two days/one night kind of thing, mostly for photography and getting the hell out of New York. I should also add that I'd rather stay away from the big spots most people hit, but not go far away enough to compromise my safety.

    I can manage with packing my own food if I have to (though I'll probably eat out for dinner).

    Don't fly anywhere. Save your money. Go on a bicycle tour.

    Check website for the cheap fares....if you find a good one, like the destination, grab it there and back.

    Might be good to check individual air lines websites.

    I know from here, they some times have like $39 fares to Las Vegas. Probably $50-60 after additional fees, but that's still only $100-120 for trip there and back.

    There are so many cool places in the USA that if you need to fly, just find a cheap flight to wherever, and then find cool stuff to do! For $350, you can fly on a commuter jet/prop to a lot of places fairly cheap, and then just wing it !

    It took Foo 24 hours to bother reading it - more likely answer.

    Chicago FTW. Flights on Southwest, from Columbus, are $25 each way on certain days.
    No matter what happens now
    You shouldn't be afraid
    Because I know today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen.
