I got bumped off a flight and US airways gave me a free round trip ticket to anywhere in the continental US. (I wanted to go to Hawaii and spend as much of their fuel as possible, but that's not allowed. )
There are restrictions, but I'll just keep it simple and say anywhere in the US.
So where should I go?
I'm from DC.
Outdoorsy (hiking is fun), but parties are ok too. Note age.
Budget minded (read: cheap)
Go to San Diego. SD is nice I hear. Then get on down to Baja California. $10 to Tijuana, then head south and tour around. Beaches?
Pros: Baja california is beautiful. I get to go to Mexico. Hotels/hostels are cheaper south of the border. It's warm. Spring Break.
Cons: spring break season? Hotels might be packed. Tourist hell?
Any comments on the above idea?
Where would you go if you were me? If you were you?
