No Escaping Costs

January 25, 1998

I would like to take this opportunity to forward my compliments regarding the Travel Section. Every Sunday brings a new and exciting destination.

However, there is one aspect of your endeavors that consistently frustrates myself and my friends: the Weekend Escapes. They are more than competently written, but I am dismayed by the choices of destination, primarily based on budget. I am in my late 20s, as are most of the people I know. Because of financial constraints, the few extra dollars that I do put aside for a weekend adventure are limited. Yet your publication views weekend escapes as something costing a mere $1,000 or more (i.e. Jan. 4 "Touches of Tuscany" escape to the Napa Valley, totaling $1,030.44). In my world, that is almost two months rent.

In my humble opinion, you would serve more of your readers by a "budget-impaired" piece in your section.
