BFF Trip 2012: Where to go?

So, here’s the deal: Me and my two BFFs are planning a girls’ trip in April. It’ll be just the three of us, and will probably take place between a Thursday and Tuesday. We’ve been trying to plan a European trip for quite some time, but between Bonna’s work schedule (at a bank) and Amanda’s work schedule (for a Virginian school system) our time slots available are slim and consist of about 5 day spans. Notice how I just blamed them… When you work for yourself, like me, you can take off whenever you want! Muah ha ha ha ha
Since we decided against a four day Europe trip… we opted for Montreal, Quebec. However turns out, to cross the Canadian border you take the normal price of a place ticket ($300ish) and add 500 to that number. We couldn’t find tickets for less than $800 which is a bit much when you’ve only got a few days…
Then, we decided on Central America since it’s close, but still out of the country. BUT then we discovered that week is spring break then and every touristy city along a beach will now be packed with high schoolers drunk off of Smirnoff Ice and Boonesfarm. Not really how we envisioned our trip…
So now, we’ve had to change our game plan.
We’re trying to decide between these 3 fine cities.
All close, all interesting, and
all places we’ve never been:
Savannah, GA
Austin, TX

Charleston, SC

All three of these cities we’ve been dying to see,
should be fairly easy to get to (i.e. flights costing LESS than $800)
and all in the South.
Which, let’s face it, will be fab no matter what.
So I’m asking for help, ladies
(or gentlemen, if you’re reading).
Where should we go?

  1. I have never been to Savannah and have wanted to go ever since I read Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, BUT I think y’all should definitely go to Austin! Austin is awesome! You would have so much fun! So much to do and see and great other cities close by that you could check out.
    And that’s my opinion 🙂

  2. May I add a suggestion? It would be super easy to spend three days in Charleston, and drive down to Savannah for a day. It’s a very short drive, I would try to see both while you are there!

  3. AUSTINNN!!!!!!! I lived there for 4 years in college and it’s seriously an incredible town. I’m happy to send suggestions if y’all decide there. It’s on like every list for best cities to live, work, play. Plus, Texas is like not cold at all right now so you should get good weather!

  4. My vote was totally random as I’ve never visited any of them but the pic from Savannah looks so beautiful! If you ever get your schedules together and decide to visit Holland, let me know and I’ll play tour guide 😀
