Speaking of budgetinf your vacation ... I wanted to go to Colorado this year. It was impossible to find anything below $200/night and that was off-season. I even tried to make a deal through a travel agency just a see how much they would come up with; for 2 including only air (from NYC), 7 night lodging and a rent-a-car … $6000. Can I afford it?! Of course! But why pay more if you can get more for way less…
Yeah, sorry dude, you're gonna take a beating on this one.
Here's a sample itinerary I came up with in 3 minutes;
For the week Dec. 13-20
Air- Jet Blue, JFK-DEN $225 pp
1 BR Condo- $400
2 season passes (Breck, Keystone, A-Basin) or perfect 10 packs- $299/350 ea.
Midsize rental car- $300 +/-
Total for 2 adults, approx. $1800.00, or less than a third of what you suggested.
Gotta shop around! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
