    Hi date twin! 🙂  We are in a similar boat of trying to figure out what we want to do for our 1-year.  What did you do for your honeymoon and what parts of that did you enjoy?

    @AbbyDabbyDoodleBug:  that’s helpful to get a sense of what you like to do.  Will a long-road trip be too ‘inactive’ for DH?   Meaning, will he be happier flying somewhere?

    I’m kind of thinking San Diego might be the spot.  If you didn’t mind going with your parents, I’d vote for Vegas… but, personally, I wouldn’t want my family around for my 1-year anniversary trip.

    I was pricing out some flights from LAX to DFW and they are around $250/each.  Not sure what that would be from Austin to San Diego, but I’d think somewhere around that pricing.   You could do SD Zoo, Legoland … October is usually great weather out here… and there are tons of hotels, etc. You’d probably go a little bit over budget, figuring in hotels, rental cars, food – but maybe you could hunt for a package deal.

    So I think you should do San Diego or Las Vegas.

    San Diego is awesome and you could do everything you wanted. The Zoo, city stuff, and they have some amazingly beautiful places for hiking and things as well.  If you stay a little farther out you could get a pretty good hotel deal.

    Vegas is fantastic and fun, but I would want to have some time seperate with Darling Husband. Will his parents give you plenty of alone time?

    @AbbyDabbyDoodleBug: yeah, no getting around the car rental in SD.  I think you should try to make that happen because that seems the most ‘exciting’ to you.  I actually think Las Vegas  could be a fun anniversary trip – lots of great restaurants, swanky new casinos, interesting shows, clubs/lounges, etc… but, it’s not for everyone (my Darling Husband hates vegas, for instance).

    Legoland is expensive and really not that cool. It’s very much geared toward little kids. I’d rather go to Disneyland anyday, especially considering how close they are in price.

    I’ve never been to the Ozarks, but if it were me that’s what I’d choose.
