Where to go in August?

Jump to last reply

I'll have about three weeks off in August, and I'm hoping to take a trip maybe for 7-10 days or so. I'll be coming from Dallas, so ideally I would like places that are a bit cooler. I'd also hope to take advantage of any regions that may be off-season around early/mid August. I also have about 150K American Airlines miles I could use if need be.

One thought was to visit friends in San Diego and San Francisco, with maybe a trip to Puerta Vallarta in there somewhere. However, it seems pretty tough to get to PV (most airlines have a flight a couple times per week), and flights are somewhat expensive there. On the other hand, hotel rates are cheap.

New York and/or Boston/Cape Cod was another idea, yet wow it's expensive there in August!

Another thought was something like Stockholm and Copenhagen, but wow that's far, and I might want more time.

Never really been to the Caribbean to stay, although I know August can be low season there.

What about some combination of Buenos Aires/Santiago/Rio? Seems a bit expensive and I may want more time there.
