You Can Snag $39 Flights on Southwest Airlines Right Now

Winter may seem like an obvious time to travel, especially if you're confined to a cold, gloomy area. But I'm more of a spring vacay kinda gal because there are so many more destinations to choose from now that Washington, DC, Boston, and Chicago are no longer freezing. And as it happens, Southwest has seriously cheap flights to these cities and beyond as part of a new sale starting Tuesday.

Everyone's favorite budget-friendly carrier is hosting a nationwide sale from now through Thursday, March 5, at 11:59pm, and as usual, the promotion means airfare across the country and beyond for cheap, with one-way flights starting at $39. And while there may be restrictions and blackout dates, let's focus on what's really important here, the destinations
