Wanna Go To Florida for Christmas?

Are you thinking about escaping this frigid Chicago winter for the sunny beaches of Florida for Christmas? You think it's too late to get decent fares, don't you?

But it's not! It's not too late!

Travelocity can get you to and from O'Hare to Tampa International Airport for less than $300 if flying on Christmas isn't a problem.

Here's your itinerary between O'Hare and Tampa:

Leave for Florida:
Thu, Dec 25, 2008
Depart: 9:35am from Chicago O'Hare (ORD)
Arrive: 12:38pm in Philadelphia, PA (PHL)
US Airways Flight 1005 (on Airbus A321-100/200)

Connection Time: 3 hrs 12 mins
1 Stop – change planes in Philadelphia, PA (PHL)

Depart: 3:50pm from Philadelphia, PA (PHL)
Arrive: 6:30pm in Tampa, FL (TPA)
US Airways Flight 711 (on Airbus A319)

Total Travel Time: 7 hrs 55 mins

You'd better plan your time in Florida wisely because you've got to on your flight back to Chicago pretty quickly. You might not have time to get to Disney.

Return to Chicago:
Thu, Dec 25, 2008
Depart: 7:10pm from Tampa, FL (TPA)
Arrive: 8:47pm to Charlotte, NC (CLT)
US Airways Flight 1292 (on Boeing 737-400)

Travel Time: 5 hrs 20 mins

Total Cost incl. all taxes: $295.49 + $15 for the first checked bag and $25 for the 2nd each way

That's right, you've got 40 minutes in sunny Florida! Of course, it'll be dark when you arrive in Florida, but it'll be warm. Oh wait, you won't have time to step outside and get back through security and on to your return trip on time.

Pack lightly and have fun!
