I'm getting about $1000 from my tax return and I'd like to take a vacation from April 16-25. Where should I go?
I'd be leaving from Baltimore / Washington DC and have a passport, but am not tied to leaving the country. I've never been farther west than Vegas and have never been to New Orleans, so those are both ideas. I'm also considering Paris since I've never been to Europe. I've spent time in Israel and Mexico, so those are out.
Mountains > beaches
Cool weather > hot weather
Cities are good, if it can be balanced out with exploring non-cities. Would I have time for that?
I speak a little French and a little more Spanish. I'm a 29 year old female. I love great (cheap) food and drink. Museums are okay, but bookstores and cafes and parks are better. Farms and short hikes are also a plus.
