Hawaii is cheap now. I'm planning to go in October and it's about $625/pp including flight and hotel...for a week! Vegas is also dirt cheap...esp. if you can go on the weekdays. A lot of rooms run about 1/3 the price of the weekends.

Honestly, it depends where you're flying from. For example, Hawaii is cheap for Californians, but super expensive for those on the east coast

I grew up in San Diego and last time I was home in May, I lamented the fact that sales tax had gone up 1% to 8.75%. Granted, that was better than the 9.25% to 9.75% I encountered in the Bay Area, but the 8.75% prevented me from buying frivolous things. I've visited 5 of the other cities on the list and was in Las Vegas a few months ago. There are some deals to be had there; my friend was able to book a night at Bally's for $40! I dunno if that rate would still be available over the summer though.

there are a couple in there that i really expected and a few that im' surprised about. i guess you can consider it a 'bargain' compared to what you would have paid for the same trip a year ago, but in some cases i'm not sure that it's very bargain.....
