We (my wife and I, that is) are tossing around the idea of a trip somewhere to the Southwest in February, when I get a week off from teaching and we'll need a week off from winter. Ideally with a mix of the outdoorsy and time spent in nice scenic towns with good (vegetarian-friendly) food, on a non-lavish budget. Never been anywhere in that part of the world. Where should we go and what should we see? [more inside]

The Googles is giving me conflicting information: where is the quietest spot on a Southwest Airlines airplane? They fly Boeing 737s (-300/-500/-700/-800, if that means anything to anyone?).
