A friend of My mom's had a free ticket, also on NWA. He called reservations and asked them what the most expensive round trip was from his home airport, BOS
. It was some place in Montana. So he booked it for a long weekend. Then he did some internet research and found out they have horses in MT
. He had never been riding before so he went to some dude ranch and had a great time.
So, go someplace and see something besides the airport. Boston and Washington, DC are great day trips. Public transport is easy and there are lots of good sights. Some others that either I've done or have heard about; Memphis, BBQ and Elvis, Dayton- USAF
-Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, SEA
-Boeing tour, Daytona Beach-Night at Ocean Deck bar(personal favorite quick trip).
