Florida may not sound like the chicest vacation spot ever, but hear us out: There are some lovely beaches. You can relive your childhood at Disney World, or ride the upcoming new Harry Potter roller coaster. Miami is under-appreciated, but there's a lot to do there aside from the beach, from boutiques to bars to museums. Just bring the bug spray.
For $69, you could fly from New York's JFK or LaGuardia airports to Fort Lauderdale, FL. For $79, you could head from NYC to Jacksonville or West Palm Beach. You could also take an $89 one-way flight from NYC to Tampa or a $99 flight to Fort Myers. The sale includes fares to other warm-weather destinations: from JFK to Phoenix, AZ, for $129; and from JFK to Los Angeles for $149.
The fares are valid for travel from September 19 to December 13, and blackout dates are on Thanksgiving and for a few days in October for trips to Fort Lauderdale and Phoenix. For the price, you'll get a basic economy seat, which means you won't get an assigned seat and can't make changes after you've booked. However, unlike other airlines, Delta offers its economy passengers in-flight entertainment, free drinks and snacks, and one free carry-on bag. Please see Delta's website for more information. Bring on any excuse to escape NYC's miserable fall and early-winter weather.
