Cheap Vacations You Can Afford & Enjoy

Trips can be expensive.  But they don't have to be.

It's possible to have a fun and relaxing vacation without taking on debt.

How?  Think outside the box and be flexible on destination, timing, and accommodations.

Here are some tips to save money on vacations while still enjoying yourself.

You don't have to go far to take a vacation.  Take a staycation and plan day trips to your own surroundings to save money.

Check out local attractions like beaches, lakes, theaters, amusement parks, boating, or hiking areas.

Travel off-season.  Determine what off-season is for your destination.  Sometimes even a couple of weeks before or after peak season will save you money.  

Go off the beaten path.  When a destination is touristy, heading away from the popular areas may offer unique experiences and lasting memories.    

Visit a national park.  There are 423 national parks in the U.S. and its territories.  Take advantage of the natural beauty that surrounds while saving money on your vacation.
