Memorial Day has come and gone, and it marks a time where many seek out a change of scenery and kick off the summer with a vacation.
So where do you want to travel this summer? That depends on your price range and what kind of vacation you’re looking for. If you’re penny pinching but want a Caribbean getaway, get on Groupon or Living Social stat to get a deal for the cheap. There are getaway packages that give discounts on hotel expenses in places like the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and St. Lucia—sometimes, airfare and an “all inclusive” arrangement is available!
If you’re looking to travel inside the United States, Travelers Choice U.S. has got you covered. They ranked the top 25 cities in the U.S. Here’s the top 10:
1. NYC, New York
2. Chicago, Illinois
3. San Francisco, California
4. Las Vegas, Nevada
5. New Orleans, Louisiana
6. Los Angeles, California
7. San Diego, California
8. Seattle, Washington
9. Washington D.C, District of Columbia
10. Orlando, Florida
Deal sites can also be utilized to find hotels in the above locations. And of course, if you want to book a flight, check sites like Expedia (which scouts flights in your price range and compares it to other airlines) instead of going directly to a specific airline.
Not that we need any more reason to get away this summer, but did you know that traveling is actually good for our health? According to Huffington Post, traveling improves our social skills, reduces stress, helps us stay fit, and even makes us more patient.
Also, it’s great for the economy. When President Obama visited the Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday he even laid out a plan to improve international and national tourism in America.
