Anywhere else to go for less than $500, than Vegas?

So I have 3 days off work next week. I have Monday to Wednesday off. Is there anywhere else I could go for less than $500 for those 3 days besides Vegas. I love Vegas, been there many times though. The $500 includes both flight and hotel on the strip.

Any alternatives for around same price range?

Almost forgot, leaving from yyz.

Hard to get flight and 3 days hotel for $500, any where.

But there's an AC sale, can get to Kona for about $300 one way.

3 days is too shot for a trip by plane.
An hour or 2 with the flight delay can almost ruin you whole day of your trip.

I would save the $500 and use it for a longer vacation and a further destination.
I'm sure you can find something to do locally and relax for 3 days, movie theatre, Raptors game, Leafs Game. Book a few dinning for Winterlicious, etc

I'd say if weather permits a safe drive there and back, your $500 would be better spent in New York City. It's an easy drive and there's so much there to do, you can't get bored. If the weather doesn't cooperate, do what's said in post 6, save your $500 for a future trip.
Friendly reminder: South Street is the second coming of Licks, and Works Burger is a bad ripoff of Red Robin put out by those purveyors of garbage, MTY Shit Restaurants Group.

Sorry... but did I hear right, you are looking for a mini break that is 3 Days for $ 500
That $ 500 is to cover both Airfare & Hotels (2 Nights)

Lol, good LUCK with that

Most Destination Hotels in the US & Canada are $ 150+
(Ya might find a few around $ 100 US in some US cities)

So right there, you’ve blown $ 200 to $ 300 US of your overall stash
Not gonna find much in the way of airfare at $ 100 to $ 200 US RETURN

Honestly... you can barely get on Via Rail and go to Montreal, Ottawa or Quebec City
For that RETURN
And we know none of those are warm

I think i’d Take the $ 500 and book a room (2 nights)
In a decent hotel or country inn
Sleep in... enjoy the pool, hot tub, and order in room service

Look at Swoop or Flair Air, for really cheap airfare. I believe they fly south too, now. Not sure how reliable their service is, but it may be worth checking.

Try to go to work late on Thursday LOL, or look for a Sunday departure. You're on the beach for the better part of 3 days.

Save the money and stay home. Why do people on this site feel the need to blow money all the time just so they can say they got a "deal?"

Why do you care what I do with my money? I can do whatever I want. It's not to brag and say i got a deal. I don't care about that. I just wanted some where to go for 3 days, and you can only go so far away when you only have 3 days off, otherwise you waste time on travel time. I've done similar trips in the past to both Vegas and Cali. If you have no actual useful input, besides worrying about how I spend my money, why even waste your time replying?

I'm not rich, but I got money to blow. What am I saving my money for. Am I going to take my saved money to the grave when I'm dead? I'd much rather spend the money and enjoy my time while I'm alive. What are you saving you're money for? Use it, enjoy life. Try getting out of your rabbit hole once in a while.

If I listen to people like you. I would have never been to Egypt, jordan, Thailand, Singapore, hong kong, and Cambodia within the last year. Oh yes maybe I shouldn't have blown all that money. Heck no. I have great memories from all those trips.

I don't get why people like to brag about how much money they saved by never going on vacations. I'd much rather spend my money and have great memories, than have a crap load of money and no great trips/vacays.

Anyways try to enjoy your boring life.
