    Hi there-a little background:

    I'm recently married (2 years) and have an amazing kid. I've been feeling a little domesticated? Lately. Maybe a bit trapped? I need to go somewhere alone for a few days. I live in Chicago. Any suggestions? I just want somewhere to relax maybe see some sites etc...thanks

    There are literally thousands of places you can go for a couple days to relax and see some sites. You're going to have to provide more parameters.

    Weather? Budget? What is actually a "couple days?"

    Hmmm let's say 3 days. Weather anything from 40-80...domestic...and let's say I have points for flight and hotel so out of pocket for food and sites...$300.

    If it's domestic, Phoenix will fit the temperature range just fine.

    Depends on what you like. Before I was married, I traveled a lot by myself, because I have a goal to visit all 50 states before I turn 50. My personal favorite domestic trip to this point was flying into ABQ, visiting the Four Corners Monument (even though the true state line isn't there) and driving into Mexican Hat, Utah for the day, then traversing the Moki Dugway on the way to the Natural Bridges National Monument. It is so secluded in that area of the country, but yet so amazingly beautiful, and a far cry from the Windy City.

    This time of year I'd go to Tuscon and maybe do the National Park, see Old Tuscon, and Tombstone -- though these are nice places to go on a family trip.

    Not to be picky. But since it is home. TUCSON not Tuscon.
