His folks will take the kids & I don't have much vacation time, so we can only manage 4-5 days or so. All my traveling has been more of the "10 European hostels in 10 days" variety, so packages and the like are all new to me.
We're coming from Boston. I'd like to minimize travel time and cost, though we do have a couple thousand to work with. Tentative dates Jan 20-25. US or international OK.
We like: nature, hiking, good food, history, and culture
Don't care for: crowded beaches, overdevelopment, wild party scenes
Hawaii would be perfect but is crazy expensive this time of year. Where can we go with a similar feel that's closer to the east coast and cheaper?
Since we're not too set on location, searching for random "deal-of-the-day" type sites might work, but the dreck of the internet is overwhelming me. Where should we look for good deals?
