With gas prices down, consider a last-minute driving trip to a national park near you. Since many national parks are a little bit out of the way of national airports, flights to close airports can be expensive, but you can usually find a major airport and rent a car and drive to one or more National parks. For instance, from Denver, you can reach Rocky Mountain National Park easily, and the black Hills (Mt. Rushmore, Badlands), Moab, and Yellowstone are not out of reach. Similarly from Las vegas you can hit the Utah national parks (Bryce, Zion) and/or the Grand Canyon.
