Southwest is having a fare sale until the end of the day, and I want to go somewhere. I can't decide!

Notes:
*I'll more than likely be traveling alone
*Don't want to go for more than 3-4 days
*Needs to have decent transportation (to/from airport), I'd be fine renting a car, but it would be cool if I didn't have to
*Travel would probably be in February
*Vacations to me are about being lazy--which means I don't have to have activities to occupy me 24/7. I'd be fine going to Amish country, if people recommended it!

My choices:

You said you wanted to go to NYC, now's your chance! But, Feb will be freezing with a chance of a blizzard.

You should fly to San Diego in Dec, can't beat that fare and so much better than that drive.

Portland is a blast, one of my favorite US cities. I love LA, but most don't. However, if you stick to the coastal towns, you'll have a blast. Great food and chefs in LA. You can always fly to Orange County and hang out in Laguna and Newport beach. We head up there a few times a year.

Austin is a ton of fun as well, very young, hip city. I have quite a few friends living there.

Boston is great, but like NYC, the weather is very unpredictable in Feb. Same for Chicago, which is in my top 3 favorite US cities. Cleveland was fun, but again, weather. And, same goes for Pittsburgh.

New Orleans was a blast...I think I've been to 98% of the cities listed. NO might be a good bet, given time of year and transportation concerns.

If it was me I'd pick New Orleans - two or three days in the FQ (shuttle from airport, no car needed once in FQ). Sounds good to me!

NYC is still functions very well during snowy conditions and there are lots of heated museums that you can visit indoors.

Yes it does, I've lived there for 17 years. It's not the temperature I'm concerned about, it's the snow. When it snows, everything turns to slush and it's really not that much fun to dodge cabs and slip and slide on the streets. I've done it for 17 years, no desire to do it again! The cold weather is one thing, but the blizzards were pure hell.

If thats the case it would be pointless to go to the big cities like NYC etc. take a trip to Tampa or Miami rent a car or take a hotel shuttle bus to the hotel and go sit on the beach .

What do you think the REAL price will be, compared to the "as low as" price, with all the extras and airport fees added in.
