I don’t know what the cost is from FL, but Montreal is very European in flavor and probably less expensive to get to than Europe itself.

If you go to kayak.com, it pulls all the data from all the travel websites so you can find the best deal.

All inclusive resorts are always great start, I read that your best bet, when you have open slate with set budget is go to a travel agent.  they can tell you where all the deals are, since you don’t have your heart set on anything, you can try it, wont hurt.

Cruises are great too…been on 3, love them, never spent that much on 2 of us.

We are thinking about flying to california and doing a road trip up route one eventually ending up in the redwood forests! That seems like a lot of fun to me. Catalina Island in California is pretty european. To me at least…And I have been to europe lol.

Hi date twin!!

I recommended this website on the bee yesterday too, but its so awesome I have to share it again.  Travelzoo sign up for the weekly top 20 emails! We are looking to go to Italy, Greece, or somewhere else we haven’t been for about $3000-3500.  Living in FL I know what you mean about not wanting to go to the Caribbean.  My family used to go on a cruise every Thanksgiving I have been to pretty much every island.

Every Wednesday they send out the top 20 deals and it just brightens my day.  I found an Italy trip that would be about $2000 + food but it only ran through March! Oh well just going to keep checking.

PenguinGuy and I did New England for less than $2k. We spent time in Boston, New Hampshire, the Adirondack region of NY, and NYC. We flew to Boston, rented a car, and returned the car in NYC when we flew back to FL. Planning ahead we were able to get good deals on hotels and bed and breakfasts. OUr biggest expense was the car, but again, we found coupons and deals and had a pretty reasonable rental rate.

I’m biased when I second the New England area because it’s my home, but honestly it’s not at its best in April (hello, mud season!).

Have you been to Charleston, SC? It’s a charming and romantic city, has lots to offer in terms of great food, entertainment, and activities, and it’s not exceedingly expensive.

What “kind” of couple are you — lay-on-the-beach, explore-new-cities, funky-avante-garde? What’s your preferred activity level? It will be easier to narrow down options once you decide how much or how little you want to do.

Fly to Seattle. Rent a car and drive the Washington  Coast. Take the Ferry to Victoria BC, then over to Vancouver and back to Seattle.

Great circle tour and spring in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful!

I’ve never been but always wanted to visit New Orleans. Living in FL, that wouldn’t be too difficult to get to, right? 

I am from NY and would normally suggest NYC but it could be risky in April weather-wise. You could luck out and the weather could be gorgeous but I have experienced blizzards in April here so its very iffy.

Try AirFrance vacations. Fiance and I went to Paris and London for $850 + a whole lotta tax (we upgraded…trips started at $699). They have all sorts of vacation deals and we didn’t spend but a few hundred additional in travel costs (but we also tried not to eat out for every meal, ate the free hotel breakfast, and walked or caught public transportation to cut costs). It also depends how long you’re in the city for…a whole week in Europe will definitely cost you, but it can be done cheaply.

My fiance and I went to Italy for 6 days last year and it costs us less than 2k. Travel Zoo is where we found the deal! I highly suggest signing up for their daily e-mails.

I would say anywhere on the Carolina coast would be a nice place to go. Since it’s off season you could rent a house on Cape Hatteras or Ocean Isle, NC for cheap, and then eat breakfast and lunch at home and go out for dinners.

I’ve always wanted to go to Charleston, I hear that’s a great place to go.
