    Looking to go somewhere to relax. Preferably inexpensive ($1000ish budget). Maybe for 5-7 days. Likely during Thanksgiving week. Might be going solo. Limited to US only because I have a damaged passport that I haven't had time to renew. Any ideas?

    Puerto Rico is a nice place with a bit of everything. Don't need passport.

    That's also what my boss recommended. Wow. I didn't know you didn't need a passport. Thanks.

    1k for 5 days?

    you;re going to have to commit to a local (person/group) w/in 48hrs for the $$$ to last a week.

    PR! Do.it.

    Yeah, if you can do a good flight, Puerto Rico or USVI. Never been to either, but they're on my list.

    If you go to PR, you have to make sure you have dinner at Marmalade. Phenomenal restaurant.

    Never been, but it's on EddieWasSnubbed's bucket list as noted above.

    So, Outlier, in contrast to the islands, do you like skiing? I would recommend Crested Butte. Telluride will be too early in the season, maybe no signifcant snow, yet

    anyhoot, have a great time! sry we argue sometimes. But I do read and listen to what you write.

    $1000 budget for 5 -6 days? Have you tried Lake Conroe? I heard they have decent deals.

    Fine, I can probably bump up my budget to $1500.

    Skiing might not be the stress reliever I seek. Not that I have done it before, but being in freezing cold temperature doesn't seem too relaxing. I can imagine it might be fun though with a couple friends... but it's very likely I am going solo.

    And you're fine, heypartner. I don't take message boards too seriously. People are much different in person, and I'm sure we would get along just fine as I do with most people in real life. ...GO SPURS!!! SPURS RULE!!! lol

    LOL, good luck with that. Thanksgiving week is one of the most expensive times to travel period.

    Never been there, like I said, but I've looked into it.


    Water island seems like an awesome time. As does St John. St Thomas seems cool, too, but the quietness of the other two appeal more to me. A car seems essential, though, which could put it out of your budget.
