If you're willing to pay for the flight, you can fly ~3.5 hours to Aruba, and then use your Chase UR for a few nights there.

Also, depending on availability, you have enough points for one person coach redemption on DL.

I'd think that in the summer, you are def better off selling the UR and buying flights to Aruba etc.

We got flights to Turks & Caicos last August for $329 on AA. Sale began about 3 weeks before

Cool.  Which hotel did you stay in?  Any recommendations on what to do?

Thanks

Have you ever been to the Seattle area?  You can see the city, Mt. Rainier, Mr. St. Helen, the Olympic peninsula and more.  Also Vancouver, BC is about 2:45 drive and Victoria is about a 2 hour ferry.  This area offers something for everyone, cities, nature, cool temperatures, and amazing sites.
