    Default Warm Weather Winter Destinations for short trips

    I'm sure we've talked about this, but I can't find the threads with my searches.

    Here's the requirements:
    - 3 or 4 nights
    - Direct flights from Calgary
    - Warm weather in January or February. Pool weather would be nice.
    - Some kind of entertainment, concerts, shows decent restaurants etc. Not "clubs" but something to do in the evening.
    - Adults trip, no kids
    - Decent deals, because I'm still a cheapass. Flight and hotel under $1000/pp for sure. You can do Vegas for that easily, and Mexico All Inclusive as well.

    I'm really familiar with Vegas, Mexico resorts and San Diego. I hate LAX, so let's skip LA. For such a short flight, Mexico is easily reachable. Phoenix and Palm Springs maybe? Anything worth seeing out east, like Florida or Atlanta or anywhere? I've never been out there.

    Whatcha think?

    San Diego is one of the greatest places on earth. Just keep going there.

    For only 3-4 days I'm guessing you don't want to spend all day travelling and coupled with the desire of a direct flight that makes the East coast less appealing. The West coast of Mexico has plenty of pool, sand and rum to decompress for a few days. One strategy we've started using is taking a red-eye down so that we're at the pool before lunch on day one.

    Florida you can easily get direct Flight/Car/Hotel for $800/person or so. Same with SanDiego or Phoenix.

    There's tons of stuff to do in Florida - everything from Disney to ride parks to gorgeous beaches and world class zoos. NASA is there too which is a cool day trip.

    I'm a sucker for Phoenix/Scottsdale. 3 hour direct flight, beautiful place, nice weather.

    Im a fan of short non-stop flights for weekend getaways.. the easiest would be West Coast, whether Palm Springs, LA or San Diego.
