Today only sales for skiers and sailors

Sun or snow? Surf or ski? Sail or gamble? What makes your vacation tick? With a today-only offer from American Airlines you can afford both!

Travel with American to either San Diego, Calif. or Reno-Tahoe, Nevada at a one-way rate of $129.

Rules are downright simple: Give a two-week or more advance purchase notice. Trips are permitted seven days a week, based on sale seat availability.

That’s it. There are no blackout dates. Trips must be finished on or before July 25, 2014.

American serves both destinations with one flight connection in Dallas-Fort Worth.

San Diego is renowned for its idyllic climate and world class attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Park, SeaWorld San Diego and LEGOLAND - to mention only a few. There are also at least 15 museums, about 6,400 restaurants, 92 golf courses and a host multicultural festivals and celebrations. With 70 miles of coastline, it supports year-round outdoor recreation, such as surfing, boating, sailing and swimming.

Located 38 miles from downtown Reno, pristine Lake Tahoe is approximately 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, with 72 miles of scenic shoreline. The water (mostly melted snow) is 99.7 percent pure, about the same as distilled water.

The destination is ideal for year-round outdoor recreation at 50 championship golf courses and 18 world-class alpine and cross-country ski resorts.

Emerald Bay in South Lake Tahoe is one of the most photographed spots in the U.S. South Tahoe has the best of both worlds: natural scenery that borders on the ridiculously beautiful, coupled with nightlife that doesn’t quit. This is home to world-class casinos that attract big-name entertainment, and top-notch restaurants and spas.

Sale airfares are always subject to change. Every seat on every flight is not offered at the lowest rate. On some departures or days there may be few or no tickets available at the lowest price.

Since only a limited supply of seats is available, act quickly to make your purchase. I recommend starting the search for available seats at vs. calling an airline directly. You can also search for the sale at travel websites such as Expedia, Orbitz or Travelocity, etc.
