DS's trip to Chicago got me thinking. I also would like to take a weekend vacation (3 or 4 day) sometime this summer and was looking for some good ideas. When I started looking into it, I really wanted to go to places like Charleston, Hilton Head, Kiawah Island, etc., but the plane tickets to the east coast are just fawking ridiculous. I dont mind spending a lot on a great resort, but I refuse to pay $600 to fly to South Carolina when it costs under $300 to fly to New York or Chicago. That is just stupid.

So, would love to hear suggestions on great weekend vacations, especially leaving from Mississippi. Include where you stayed (good resort suggestions, etc.).
