Join Shaffer Nickel and his friends as they take on the spirit of spontaneity and adventure in a jam-packed span of two days, from the mountain peaks of Denver to the sandy beaches in San Diego, to finally come to a peak in the snow-capped evergreens in Bozeman, Montana.

Five to seven days—that’s the average amount of time an American family will take time off of work and school to go on a vacation. But what if you only had five to seven hours to go on a vacation? In the midst of busy work and school schedules, a day trip is all you need to pack in local favorites, sites to see, and things to do in your bucket list cities. Hop on a morning flight out and grab an evening flight home to get the most out of your day trip to Nashville, Tennessee.

Ever since my obsession with the show Big Little Lies started, Monterey has been calling my name. Earlier this year, I had the privilege of joining the #SouthwestStorytellers team, so when a friend told me he was celebrating his birthday there it seemed like the perfect getaway.

 

During our short weekend stay, we were able to cover a lot of ground both in and around the city and discover some of the most scenic areas in California. Read more for my list of top five places to check out the next time you make it to this special part of the golden coast.

People associate a number of emotions with travel; however, adrenaline isn’t typically one of those emotions—unless you’re a Southwest Airlines Intern! On Friday mornings, before I leave for work, I always pack a backpack with the essentials for travel: a swimsuit, my passport, hiking shoes, and a rain jacket. One thing I don’t have? A boarding pass or a destination! This summer, I’ve been fortunate to spend the majority of my weekends traveling with my fellow Interns. As July is Parks and Recreation Month, we’ve been especially focused on exploring as much of America’s open space and natural wonder as possible.

My daughter’s high school robotics team competed at the World Championship in Houston recently, and they specifically chose to leave competition early so they would be home in time to celebrate their Senior Prom. All was going according to plan and spirits were high until they learned that their flight had a five hour delay which would put them home mere minutes before prom was to begin. Would senior prom be ruined? Not a chance with Southwest!

medium_1_kvzdqp.jpgMy first thought was to jump online and order her another one. Surely the original was long gone! And then I saw those dreaded two words—sold out. I then decided that while it was probably a long shot, I would contact Southwest directly to inquire about my daughter’s missing stuffed animal. It had been a good six or seven hours since we'd landed, so I didn't have high hopes. Thankfully, I connected with Mallory…

When each of my sons finished their junior year of high school, I took them on a cross-country road trip to see the back roads of America and visit colleges. Each of the trips started with a Southwest Airlines flight from Boston to San Francisco, and each trip included a baseball game. A few weeks after the trip with my youngest son in 2006, my oldest asked “Dad, how long would it take to see all the major league parks?” I replied “Let’s find out.”

It’s not a secret that here at Southwest Airlines, we are a Company that has always shown love, support, and admiration for our Military. When we discovered Olivia was seeking assistance with arranging roundtrip airfare for her father, a Vietnam Veteran, to travel to Florida to meet his grandchildren and great grandson—all of whom her father had never met before, we sprung into action.

I’ve attended my first three Super Bowl weekends in New Orleans, San Diego, and Detroit and during my time in the host cities, I attended the great free or low-cost events that the NFL hosts. Thanks to Southwest Airlines, I am able to travel around the country easily for football.

A few months ago, Nic Jepsen, a high school student, reached out to our CEO, Gary Kelly, to ask for roundtrip airfare to see his team’s nationally-recognized science experiment rocketed into space. At Southwest, we love to inspire students to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers, and our Purpose is connecting Customers to what’s important in their lives. So, we weren’t surprised to learn Gary said yes.

Jackey in Buffalo was a super helpful Customer Service Agent!  It sure is a small world when I ran into her outside a football game 400 miles away!

CMH Honor Flight7.jpgAt nearly 100 years old, Margaret Switzer was the oldest Veteran on the flight and stole the hearts of everyone she met. Margaret served as a secretary during World War II.

On September 10, the 77th Honor Flight took off from Columbus. However, this Honor Flight was unique, as it marked the first all-female Honor Flight to depart from Columbus. Everyone involved felt a deep sense of responsibility to make sure that this momentous occasion was special for every Veteran that was in our care. Hopefully our mission was accomplished.

Our San Diego and Reno Freight Agents have the honor of transporting Customer Mary Ann Prall’s pet iguana, Angel. Since Customers are not allowed to bring iguanas inside the cabin, Mary Ann ships Miss Angel using Southwest Cargo when she leaves her home in San Diego to visit her parents in Reno.
