Build Your Own Vacation!
July 01, 2010 02:45AM
Since this particular part of the forum has not had a post in over a month (!) I figure that we need something interesting to get the ball rolling again.

So what would be your dream vacation? Post the details, like destination, flight info, dates, hotel info, rental car info (if you don't have your license, or under 25, let's pretend that you can drive and that there are no extra fees for minors), and how much it would cost to take such a vacation, just to make things interesting. You can pretend that all of the expenses are already taken care of, but you should still be reasonable (ie: no taking a $1000 one-way to fly SEA-DEN-PDX-LAX in coach) Also, you can post more than one vacation since I'm sure we all have a list of different places we'd like to go! Here's mine:

I'd probably pick LAX too.

Flight Out on 8/18/10 (My 21st birthday!):
Delta Flight 110:
Depart ATL: 7:35 AM
Arrive LAX: 9:14 AM
Boeing 757-200

$405 for the round trip.

Rental Car:
Something like a Ford F-150. That's what I drive at home, and since it's a dream vacation...
I'd be up to my eyeballs in under-age fees that's for sure.

Marriott Downtown Los Angeles
1 king bed, city view

Flight Back:
Delta Flight 1754
Depart LAX: 11:45 AM
Arrive ATL: 7:05 PM
Boeing 777-200/LR

Total Cost: ~$1,700
