Have you been California Dreamin' lately? Consider your West Coast wishes granted. Southwest has dropped most of its inter-California flights to $29 and $39 each way ($58-$78 roundtrip) for travel in late summer and fall. Nonstop flights between California and other neighboring states are available for $78 - $138 roundtrip.
Travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through December 18, with a 21-day advance purchase required. Take a one-night change of scenery or spend an entire week in another locale. If you just want to get away for a few days, combine these low $29 one-way fares with another low fare on other days of the week.
Travel is blacked out November 26 and 27.
This sale is unadvertised and could jump at any moment. However, there is an ongoing Southwest sale in which tickets must be purchased by Thursday, August 1, 2019, at 11:59 pm PDT. Occasionally these cheaper unadvertised rates follow the same booking date.

Southwest has an open seating policy, which means there are no assigned seats and you'll get to choose your seat during boarding. The order of boarding is determined by the time of check-in, so check-in exactly 24 hours before departure or pay for priority boarding for a better choice of seat.
Searching Southwest's site, I found seats departing Los Angeles on Wednesday, September 11, with a return flight from San Jose SJC on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, for $58 roundtrip.
