Help!!! But don't tell my wife.
I am a TA 'anal retentive' junkie and have been for many years. TA has been my travel bible, and the reviews, advice and suggestions I get are so important that I refuse to book a trip until I complete my due diligence.
Well here's my plight:
My oldest son is graduating from college December 15th, and starts his new job in Charleston on the week of January 9th, 2012.
We have to do a housing hunting trip for him anyways, so my wife and I thought: Wow, why not combine it with a family vacation in the Historic District of Charleston to get him (and us) acclimated for our soon to be second home.
Here's the issue, and I admit, I failed miserably (my wife doesn't know yet, please don't tell her):
My lovely wife asked me to book the trip last month, and I told her, honey don't worry, it's the off season, I'll take care of it, well I never did.
Yes, because of scheduling conflicts and other commitments, we can only visit Charleston between Christmas and New Years and that's a problem since the top places seem to be already booked.
We would like to spend like 6 or 7-days getting acclimated to the area, enjoy the HD, see the sights, taste the food, enjoy the life and find our son housing.
I just never thought it would be so busy at TA favorite hotels, Inns and rentals this time of year, yea, I know dummy me. Live and learn.
Well if the stars line up perfectly, and if I'm still happily married, I will be traveling with my lovely wife, and two adult (23/18) sons, one soon to be employed in Charleston.
If money is no object now, and I want to have the trip of a life time, your help is now needed, any worthwhile suggestions?
Soon to be in separate beds in Florida
