Last Minute Domestic Vacay
Long story short, supposed to be flying to Mexico with a group on 7/22. Made the mistake of paying $400+ to a passport expediting company on 6/28 instead of just going through the normal route for our passport renewals. As of today, our renewal applications still aren’t showing up in the system. Friends who went the normal right and paid for expedited renewal have already gotten their passports. Rushmypassport.com, which we used through Fed Ex, is apparently a joke and it’s likely we won’t get our passports. We’re working with Graves office but at this point our applications are lost and we are hoping to get an appointment in Nola Mon-Wed of next week. This isn’t a “you should have had your shite together and applied for your passport on time” thread. This is a, our flights are non-refundable, but they are transferable….so, come Thursday if we don’t have our passports, we plan to get on a plane going somewhere. Give me your top U.S. destinations to go without your kids. Napa is at the top of our list, but since it will be last minute, I’m looking for options to explore.

Sorry, never been to that board. I’ve just seen so many passport threads lately I put it here. I don’t post often, so forget how sensitive the OT is.

Your friends don’t want to hang out with anyone who uses the word “vacay” anyway

My friends are younger than you and will be fine. I don’t use that word when I speak - just a message board abbreviation to save space.

Assuming a beach vacation was your plan going to Mexico than Key West would be my choice.

re: Last Minute Domestic Vacay
For the b.s. passport company? Yes, but I’m not even worried about that. I bank with USAA and I’m sure they will reverse the charges if the company doesn’t refund me. Resort is refundable and flight is transferable, so not worried about that either. Just looking for our plan B options. We will be getting on a plane on Thursday - either going to Playa del Carmen, or somewhere else.

re: Last Minute Domestic Vacay
Which airline are you flying, and what airport are you flying out of, and how long do you have for your vacay?

But the answer, really, is wherever you can actually find hotel rooms. A lot of places are really full right now.
