This is officially a month late, but I thought I’d go ahead and post about our anniversary trip that we took in September. Jeff and I always make sure that at least once a year we take a trip WITHOUT the children. We usually do this around our anniversary which is in August. This year we went to Park City, Utah, and it was AWESOME!
After narrowing down our choices to mountain locations and Southwest Airlines destinations, I started looking for hotels. I used the website LuxuryLink.com. It is sort of an auction site, but you can also just by packages, as well. Really nice hotels and resorts will list packages on this site when they have vacancies or in their off seasons, and you can get a great deal. Before I buy a package, I always go on TripAdvisor.com to check out the hotel, as well as the city in general to verify it’s a nice location. I also price the package out by going on the resorts official website as well as a few others (Travelocity or Expedia) to make sure I’m really getting a good deal. Once I’m convinced it’s a nice place for a good price, I then price airfare to make sure I’m not going to get hosed on that end of things. After all of that research has been compiled, I go for it. That may seem like a lot of work, however when it comes to hotels, or really anything actually, I’ve got Neiman’s taste on a Target budget. 🙂
