By:

Earlier this week, we asked our Facebook faithful about the quirkiest places they've traveled to from a Southwest city. If you’re a clam chowder-a-holic like I am, it’s all but confirmed that Fisherman’s Wharf in the heart of San Francisco is your motherland.  If bread bowls are your scene, then allow me to keep you from making a rookie mistake on your next... read more

Not Yo Mama’s southwest.com

By:

1995 was quite the year. The DVD was invented. Kodak introduced us to the world of digital photography. eBay was founded. While these major milestones were occurring, we here at Southwest were ready to debut our own innovation that would change travel as we knew it. In 1995, southwest.com was born.
