Wanting to Surprise Hubby with Anniversary Trip - but WHERE?

Mamas-

Hubby and I will be married 6 years in April 2012. I'd love to surprise him with a trip (Mon-Thurs) but am not sure where the best place for couples to go would be. I looked into Arizona because he loves airplanes and has always wanted to go to the Airplane Graveyard. But tickets alone would cost us $1000. I looked into a cruise but he's not the 'sit in the sun and pool type' guy so I'm not sure that is the best option for our money. I thought maybe about Vegas?

Have any ideas for great but not super expensive trip for us? Somewhere with good food, nightlife and maybe a show or touristy attraction? Or if you went on a cruise, where did you go? Cruise line?

Thanks!

What can I do next?

VEGAS! That would be a blast for both of you and plenty of options once you get there. Very cheap too. Have Fun!

Are you close enough to Chicago to get in on a bus or train? (Or drive.) Chicago has amazing nightlife. Navy Pier is fun, and in the daytime, you could go to the museums, planetarium and aquarium. (My hubby and I like that kind of thing.) At Navy Pier, they have a lot of ships, though it's a little cold to be on them out in the night air, but you might see if you could get on one of them during the daytime, or inside one at nighttime. (By the way, the prices they quote on-line are not the full price - you have to pay extra taxes or something and that runs more - so heads up to on that.)

I don't know anything about cruises, but you might check with 8kidsdad. He's probably been on more cruises than most of us here.

I surprised my husband with a trip to St. Croix. It was AWESOME! I paid $1500 for plane tix and 4 night/5day stay at the resort.

There are 2 different sides of the Island. One where it's remote (Frederiksted) and you can snorkle, scuba dive, rent a Jeep Wrangler and truck through the rain forest part of the island... OR you could go to the other side of the island (Christiansted) for night life and shopping.

I'd go for San Diego. Yes, you can sit in the sun if you want to, but there is a ton of stuff to do. We went on our honeymoon there and loved it and can't wait until our kids are old enough to go back and enjoy it as a family (although it'd be great as a couple as well.)

There are a few airplanes on the deck of the navy ship that is docked there. I wonder if the naval base ever does any air shows.

Or, maybe you could look into a hot air balloon outing?

A coworker of mind turned me on to this site. He and his wife went to Mexico and had an incredible time. Good luck!

Vegas would be cool...maybe you could also think about Chicago (though it might still be chilly in April), Myrtle Beach/Hilton Head, New Orleans, or Key West.
