If you’re not picky about where you go, budget travel packages are easy to find. If you want to go on vacation with your family, group of friends or co-workers, a romantic getaway, or solo adventure, there’s no need to spend a fortune. Regardless of your plans, here are some cheap vacation ideas to consider:
Why pay for a hotel room when you can just bring a tent and go camping around the Grand Canyon? You’ll want to get near the North Rim for some priceless views. You can save even more if you visit the National Park on one of its free entrance days.
Salt Lake City
It’s never expensive to spend a few days at Salt Lake City, with the average hotel prices staying below $150 all year round. There are a lot of fun, free activities held regularly at Temple Square. This might be worth checking into.
This popular spring break destination offers a lot of deals for every type of traveler, from the NASCAR fan to the beach lover. There are a lot of cheap vacation ideas for families as well – around the Boardwalk and Daytona Maritime Museum.
As long as you don’t get caught up in gambling, a Vegas vacation can be very cheap. You can especially if you go mid-week instead of the weekends. Not only can you find discounts at the resorts and hotels, you can also experience many top attractions – like the Bellagio Fountains – simply by walking around outside.
What about international vacations?
A few fun, low-cost international destinations include:
Thanks to the exchange rate, you can enjoy everything from a river cruise to handmade craft shopping for a few dollars a day. There are nearly 300 hotels in Bangladesh and many of them are well under $100 a night.
Your money will really stretch in Krakow, Poland. Some experts even call it “the best bargain” in all of Europe. It’s as much as 40% cheaper than Amsterdam. As long as you stay in a mid-range hotel, you’ll easily spend less than $100 a day.
If you’re looking for a cheap, yet equally exciting alternative to Tokyo, Bangkok is an excellent choice. Thailand has always been a favorite of budget-conscious backpack travelers, and Bangkok is a great city that costs as much as 60% less than Tokyo. In some restaurants, you can get a takeout dinner for $1 or less.
These are just a few examples of some cheap vacation ideas. No matter where you want to go in the world, there are some fun, safe, inexpensive places to stay. You don’t need to send a lot of money to sight-see.
