I fly out of EWR, am 1K and trying to decide where I can go somewhere fun and interesting in the United network, maximizing my free weekend time. Lastly I have 2 GPU's expiring at the end of April (extended from last year) which i would love to use, if at all possible. Don't want to spend more than $2000 on economy tickets to upgrade. It will be only me travelling.

Right now the only thing I can come up with is EWR - LHR, leaving at 6PM on April 19 and coming back on the 7:55AM from LHR on Monday. Seems to have plenty of saver awards in economy and Polaris is looking quite empty. Keeping my fingers crossed that Polaris award space opens up closer to booking.

Anyone have any better ideas for me?
For paid tickets, you might get some ideas from the Mileage Run forum.

If you can travel Friday-Monday and are okay with economy there's a saver award EWR-TPE for 70,000 miles r/t in Y. Add an additional 45,000 miles if you have to come back Sunday.
