lake tahoe...drive up highway 395. the fishing will be good if you can bear the freezing cold. semi cheap hotel rates and a big range of options. There are plenty of options near south lake tahoe within an hours drive. Markleeville, heenan lake, topaz lake, truckee river(really low flow), carson river, the list goes on and on.

Vegas, I'm at a $32.00 deal right now. But it gets $$$$ with all there is to play.
Cheap date- Drive up the coast just stop along the way. Big Sur, Monterey are great.
Great deals on Hotels on the interweb.
Have fun.

Thanks guys ...but we lived in Vegas and dont dig it, Wife's afraid of Mexico, waters to cold in Catalina for wife, and Solvang area sucks cuz I dont like it and we lived in Grover Beach for a while and over it/rather not return.
Told her we'll stay home or maybe try Lake Cuyamaca but still lookin for a recent fishing report.
Thanks anyways guys!!!

Big Bear Lake. Look up a cabin rental at VRBO.com. I like it better in the summer since I don't ski, but it is really nice all year round.

Joshua Tree National Park. Lots of things to do there. Palm Springs is close, the outlet center on the way here and if you have money left, on the way home too.

Big Bear sucks compared to Idyllwild or even Lake Arrowhead. Both would be cold but who doesn't like snuggling up with the wife in front of a warm fire. Try VRBO.
