You didn't indicate from where you'd be starting, but using farecompare.com is always a good start to see cheap fares from wherever it would be. Forcing out of the way connections within the fare routing rules using the multicity feature of the UA website is one way of increasing the mileage on your ticket, once you've decided where to go.

Thanks...

It would be LAX/SBA/SMX/OXR/SBP area BTW.

Using your criteria, you could easily do two domestic round-trips to the east coast well within your budget and time requirements.

I'd look at farecompare.com to find the cheapest places to fly to from LAX, etc., and go from there. You might look at routings via SFO and IAD for the extra mileage.

Just so nobody wastes any time, I will need no further assistance:

For those who care, I will be traveling LAX-BDL-ATL-DFW-LAX.

Thanks for all help.
