My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.

Where to?

Air France. The plane I wish I was on...
The boyfriend is getting surgery on his shoulder on May 1 (surgery that he's been putting off for 5+ years, due to the fact that he didn't want to give up rugby. Dedication much?) He's going to be pretty much immobile for 8 weeks or so...and let me tell ya, he's pretty grumpy about it already. This cuts into his precious summer time right after he graduates (again! With another honours degree! Excuse my bragging). We decided a while ago that we'd go away for a couple of days in between the end of exams and his surgery. The problem? We found out his last exam is on April 25th. Meaning we'd only be able to go away somewhere from the 26-29. So our dreams of somewhere hot and tropical to cram his fun summer into got slightly diminished. But that's okay! Because now we get to be creative and go somewhere less hot but more local!
Here are our ideas so far:

  • Ottawa, Ontario
  • Quebec City or Old Montreal, Quebec
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Washington, DC
  • Niagara Falls, Ontario (despite the fact that we've both been there about 100 times..still always good for a weekend away!)
  • Toronto, Ontario (see note above)
  • Orlando, Florida (I already have passes to Disney World, so that would be good price-wise! Although I've been to Florida a number of times and would like to explore somewhere new. Plus not so sure how enthusiastic my 23-year-old-macho-man boyfriend would be about Winnie the Pooh and Mickey Mouse rides)
  • Jasper, Alberta
  • Banff, Alberta
There are pros and cons to each one... cons for all of the American cities are that I'm not turning 21 until June 3, so if we wanted to go out to a bar or whatnot my lack-of-age would be ruining those plans. Also the price of some of these places are significantly higher than others (we're looking to spend less than $500 each). Anyone have any cheap-ish, random long weekend getaway ideas?
