AirTrans one-day sale to 50 destinations from Los Angeles

AirTran Airways is having a one-day sale with one-way fares as low as $44 (plus taxes and fees). You have to book Friday for travel by June 16.

Deal: The super-low fares on this deal feature East Coast destinations: Boston to Baltimore ($49) and Nassau, Bahamas to Orlando ($44). From Los Angeles, one-way sale fares for 50 destinations are in the $104-to-$179 range, including $104 for Washington, New York and Boston; $166 for San Juan, Puerto Rico; and $124 for Atlanta. You have to travel Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays to get the lowest prices.

When: Purchase tickets by 8:59 PDT May 7 and complete your travel by June 16. Tickets must be bought seven days in advance of travel; blackout days are May 28 and 31 (Memorial Day weekend).

Tested: I tried various date combinations from Los Angeles to New York but couldn’t always get the $104 rate both ways. For example, leaving Wednesday, June 2, the lowest fare I could find was $129, though I could get the $104 rate to return on Saturday, June 5. As I tested various dates between L.A. and New York, the $129 rate showed wider availability than the rock-bottom $104, but that may be because seats are going fast.

Top 5 Hotels to Go to for Independence Day

If youre planning to go out of town for the 4th of July, now is the perfect time to start planning your trip. You would want to celebrate that day with a smash, and the first thing you have to look for is the best hotel to book your stay in. Below are five of the best hotels you should consider for Independence Day. While some will boats of front-row seats to the best fireworks show, others can have an HBO star sing for you.

Washington D.C.: W

Top 5 Hotels to Go to for Independence Day

The first hotel that should be on your list is the W in Washington D.C. On the night of the 4th of July, make sure that youre at their POV terrace. You should go ahead and enjoy drinks from their open bar, and let yourself be treated like a VIP, what with the entertainment youll be getting from their guest celebrities. Rumor has it that for Independence Day, theyre having Adrian Grenier with his band, the Honey Brothers.

After the sterling performance from our Entourage star, youll also enjoy the fireworks from one of Washingtons prime spots. The hotel just happens to be right beside the White House, and with New York DJ Sky Nellor spinning the disc afterwards, youll have a 4th of July experience that can be envied by even the President himself.

For the Boom, View, rooftop party, and suite package, prepare to spend about $619. If youre planning to stay elsewhere and just join the party with the rest of the hotel guests, $200 should do the trick.

San Diego: Sè
