Oh my goodness, how did I forget about this place!

They have very strange hours, but worth the trip. Its like a cafeteria eating system, but a pretty good hole in the wall place.

sorry, just saw this. We actually have a bald eagle nest up the river from our camp so we see mom, dad, and immature daily when we are up there. It's like clockwork when they fly down and blows me away every time.

Is there a website that will tell you the cheapest flight out there, from point A to point B, regardless of when the flight leaves?

I agree, it's the best I've seen.

What I'm looking for ideally is something where I can say I want a round trip flight from San Francisco to DC, and I don't care at all when it leaves. Find me the cheapest flight on the interwebz in the next year or so, and I'll get it.

Kayak.com has an option to look at an entire month. So you could look up a few different months and compare.

Just laid out work travel plans for the next year or so.

September 9-12 - Newport, RI
October 15-20 - Anaheim, CA
December 2-4 - NYC
February 2-5 - Atlantic City, NJ
April 14-18 - Montreal
June 8-12 - Chicago, IL

Pretty set with the last 4 but could use some tips on Newport and Anaheim. Most days will be in a trade show all day. Have two 1/2 days in each trip. No car so walking or public transportation or cab.

Any thoughts?

Kayak is great but Kayak Explore is even better and I think more of what you might be looking for:

In Philadelphia for one afternoon (I'll get there about 1). We have evening plans, but if there's one must see in the city, what is it?
