Question Fun weekend for 'adult' (!) son?

I have a couple of Soutwest Reward tickets, one of which is about to expire. Seeing that my son is a bit under the weather (homesick...), I thought I would take him somewhere for the weekend - but he can't think of anywhere he'd like to go.

Any suggestions, anyone? He is 20 and his current interests can be summed up as 'hanging out'. Possible destinations (based on SW destinations and accessibility from CA) are Seattle, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Diego, LA, Houston.

Basically he just needs to get away for a few days as he's in a bit of a rut right now...

TIA

I would hit up Chicago for a weekend. I think the others you would need more time.

Vegas might be fun I think theres loads that he could do. Probably best search on the web to be certain. At least you could both have a bit of a laugh.

Being under the gambling and drinking age, Vegas will suck for a 20 year old.

I've not been to Seattle but I've heard it's a good place for young people. Here's the official visitor link for Seattle, WA.

No wonder he's under the weather. Is he going back to the UK?
