Use It or Lose It: 5 Awesome Last-Minute Vacations

It's that time of the year -- where you have to use your vacation days or lose them -- and why lose them? WHY? You worked your butt off all year and deserve a break. Besides, with this weather we're having, you might just go crazy if you don't skip off somewhere. Consider this a Public Service Announcement... Broad style!

Because it's last minute, I'm thinking cheap, fun and NO STAY-CATIONS! Especially not when it's snowy and freezing out. Unless you live by a ski resort. But even then.

Below, find five awesome, cheap, easy places to go to:
