Get Out of Town! Travel Deals


Here are some deals we found to get you out of the Salt Lake City heat. ---

Bear Lake is always a few degrees cooler and when you go, you can stay in one of the themed rooms at The Inn at Snow Meadows, starting at $99 for two people for a one or two-night stay. The deal is good for the Asian, Wildlife, Bohemian or Safari Suites for this Groupon offer.

OK, we admit, Las Vegas is not going to be cooler than SLC in terms of temperature, but it is in terms of what you can do when you stay at the J.W. Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa for just $103 ON WEEKENDS through this TravelZoo offer. We stayed there on our last visit to Vegas and it has a great spa with an amazing couples pool area. The resort is away from the bright lights if your looking to relax, but it’s also just minutes from The Strip.

Cozumel is a charming island off the coast of Cancun that many visitors think has as much of a Caribbean feel as it does a Mexican influence. Tourism to Mexico is down significantly right now, so deals just keep getting better. This Zozi deal is a 4-day, all inclusive stay at a resort for not one, but TWO people for $491. That includes staying at Sabor Cozumel Resort and Spa, meals, drinks, snorkeling and kayaking.

Get to Japan, for just $668 with this Delta Airlines deal. You’ll have to get yourself to Seattle first, but $668 from anywhere in the states to Asia is a great opportunity.
