Here are the top 3:
1. Destin, FL: While Orlando and Miami are generally looked at as the ideal vacation spots in the sunny state of Florida, Destin is just as entertaining and is generally much cheaper! With its white sanded beaches, emerald green water, luxury spas, and huge gulf courses Destin offers a variety of activities that are sure to get your mind off of your stressful 9-to-5. Because not many tourists vacation in Destin, the hotel rates, airfare, and other tourism expenses are drastically lower than most other Florida vacation spots. In addition, this city is much less crowded and the attractions are easy to find. If you’re looking for a warm, luxurious vacation destination that is easy on the eyes and on your pockets, Destin is the place to be!
2. Nashville, TN: Ready to embrace your inner cowboy or cowgirl? Take the family down to Nashville this summer. Home to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville is one of Tennessee’s most toured cities. Music fills the mild air both day and night, and the entertainment is extremely affordable. While you’re there don’t forget to chow down on some good ol’ southern comfort food as Nashville has a variety of restaurants and cafes that can fill any stomach on a budget. Although most of the tourist attractions are conveniently located downtown, you can escape for a day or two to visit the more rural areas of Nashville and maybe even do a little horseback riding. Yeee-hawww!
3. New Orleans, LA: If you though New Orleans was only good for Madis Gras boy were you wrong! While many people visit in February for Madis Gras, the best time of year to visit is around July and August. This ensures that you beat the massive crowds and the escalated prices. Known for its delicious creole and Cajun cuisine, New Orleans is home to some of the best restaurants in the world. After you grab a bite, be sure to stop in one of the local jazz spots for some great entertainment at a reasonable price. While you’re walking around the infamous French Quarter in uptown New Orleans, check out some of the beautiful historic churches and buildings.
