Today is an extremely slow day at work, so I decided to start browsing around for places to go/stay for a long weekend. I started out looking at places down the NJ shore, some B+B's, Cape May, etc. They are still all going for 250+ a night. Switched to PA and CT. Mystic Seaport, Poconos, etc. Didn't find anything too appealing, and still rather expensive.
On a lark, decided to check air for KW. It's been 7 months since our last trip, and I've been having attacks os Keys Disease weekly. The time I'm looking to go, Sept 16 or 17 thru the 21st is avail via Continental, for $20 plus 50,000 miles, which we have.
So....the travel to KW, will cost as much as the travel to any of the places near me, since gas is so high.
That leaves the following dilemma.
1) Last time, we were done 1st week of Oct, and it was pretty dead down there. Is the middle of Sept a real quiet time? Like the 1st week of Oct? I don't need standing room only crowds, but many of the night spots were empty in Oct. I watched the Yanks get booted from the playoffs with just my wife at Ricks outside bar,
2) Where would you recommend us staying for something the the range of $200 a night. We were at Heron House Court in Oct, liked it, but would like something a little more fancy for 10yr anniversary. The price can be a bit higher, but not too much.
Previously, we've always rented a house with other couples, so maybe a resort would be the way to go? This has me so excited, I can hardly type.
