Usually, the folks at TripCart don't get involved with politics, but we have to take a stand this time. A generation from now, people will be traveling to visit the home of Sarah Palin or the Obama Presidential Library or visa versa. And that would mean a trip to Alaska or Hawaii. Both are good. Lets compare:
Its a tough call, so lets let the "chad-punching" citizens of Florida decide. If you lived in West Palm beach - where would you rather go - Honolulu or Wasilla?
Beaches - neither. South Beach in Miami is just fine, thanks.
Flights - checked on Orbitz and RT Miami to Anchorage is $1000, to Honolulu $1038. Both are one stop.
Skiing - Palin wins - Alpenglow is about 45 minutes away.
Shopping - Obama wins with the Ala Moana Mall. Obama wins again with the choice of kitschy souvenir. Pineapple and Hula skirt beats Moose paraphanalia.
Crowds - Palin wins. Unless you like them - then Obama wins.
I give up - we can just let the supreme court decide (in my next post)
