Weekend getaway...

What's a cheap, warm and nice place to go for a weekend getaway? I need to get out of this place, I can't take this cold any longer

Re: Weekend getaway...

Exactly how much is cheap? Me and the wife like to get a cabin in Gatlinburg, TN which is only a little over 2 hours from where we live but it's a great getaway for us. Major touristy type place with lots to do pretty close proximity.
A weekend in general runs us like $500.. That's with a cabin that has all the little quirks like hot tub and pool table and the such in it. The cabin is about $250-300 of it.

You can get off cheaper if you goto a small hotel.. I could include some links to rental places and the such if interested. But you can find everything you might want to know just by doing a search for gatlinburg and looking at the sites that pop up for it.

Re: Weekend getaway...

I'm looking to spend $500 or less. I thought about the Gatlinburg area....

Re: Weekend getaway...

Starts on Thurs.(17th) but St. Patty's day in Savannah, Ga. is a good time.

I don't drink

I'm scheming something for AZ, waiting for a call back from a friend. Chances are slim, but it *could* work

Yep... I knew that but wasn't thinking. Stay away from Savannah on St. Patty's day ... But any other time it is still a great place visit, but you would want to have transportation. Savannah is a grand old city on the coast with a great history and interesting sights.

Well, maybe if you live above the Arctic Circle.

But definitely not warmer than Cleveland. Once you get up into the mountains, it starts getting a wee bit nippy.

I still say Biloxi. Warm, right on the gulf so you can fish or snorkel or just lay on the beach. Nice spot.

I'd also second Jacksonville. Nice, but crowded.

I was going to suggest south east of Orlando for golf. Beautiful and cheap, if you can put up with Colryn's idea of crappy weather.
