5 Destinations For 'Dark Week' Travel


Las Vegas

It's between 40 and 50 degrees, the strip is dead, the pools are quiet, restaurant waits are minimal and \ out-of-town attractions such as the Grand Canyon are snowed over.

Vegas hasn't exactly been pricey since the recession, but it's even cheaper in the cold early weeks. Locals know this and hit the tourist spots en masse while everyone's away, but a savvy traveler can get in on the action, too. According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, discounted rooms at the Excalibur start at $29 a night, while rates at the Stratosphere on the other end of the strip start at $32.

Still need some airfare? A flight out and two nights at Treasure Island between now and the end of February starts at $151 per person. A three-night deal at the Monte Carlo booked before Jan. 26 goes for $157. There's not much happening in Vegas around this time of year and there aren't many people staying there, either, so cash in while you can.
