Where to Vacation?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking to plan a vacation for this Summer. We'll need to take Southwest Airlines out of MDW, as one of us can fly using our Rapid Rewards points. Budget is a BIG issue for this one vacation we'll take in 2013.

Based on our points, I have narrowed down our trip to three option for this one week trip. Please give me your thoughts.

We love sightseeing, especially that of a historical nature, and trying well known restaurants.

1. Buffalo-Niagara Falls/Toronto. Would love to see the falls, but a bit concerned there isn't enough in this area to keep us busy for a week.

2. Raleigh, NC/Virginia. We could visit two State Capitals flying into Raleigh (the other being Richmond- we visit all the capitals we can). Neither of us have been to NC.

3. Washington, DC/Virginia. We've been to DC before, but still need to visit the Natl Mall. We've been to Charlottesville and Mt Vernon, but Richmond and Williamsburg certainly seem worth a trip.

I think trip #3 is the way to go, but my husband likes the idea of visiting Niagara Falls.

Please help us decide. Thanks!
