Ten Vacations for Under
Looking for a fun, affordable vacation?
Well we have ten great ideas for entertaining vacations that cost less than $1000.00. Take a vacation
you will remember forever and save money at the same time. Check out these money-saving
1. Take a family of four camping for a
week at a State Forest or National Park. Camping gear, campground fees (which usually run per night
stayed) and travel fees will run you under $1000.00. Your family can bond while enjoying the great
outdoors during the day and sleeping under the stars at night. If you purchase a small grill or stove,
some of which are made particularly for camping, you can bring your own food to cook and save money on meals
2. The ultimate vacation for any kid is a
trip to Disney World. Disney World has taken measures to make visits to the park affordable for any
family. By staying at one of Disney’s value resorts and visiting during the value portion of the season
(January 1-February 16, August 28 – October 4, and November 27 – December 19) you can save a lot of money and
still get one of the best vacation experiences in the country. Room prices in value resorts often start
at around $80 a night during the value season.
3. Airline tickets can be purchased and
often found at cheap prices from airlines such as Southwest Airlines and JetBlue Airlines, which aim at
offering passengers low airfares.
For an experience like no other, bring your family north up to Cochran, located in
Ontario, Canada. Here you and your family can sleep in an actual igloo. Do not expect to freeze during
your stay, these modern igloos include all the charm of a real igloo but include modern amenities such as
kitchenettes and sleeping for five people. Although they are built out of ice and snow the temperature stays
warm inside the igloo making for a fun, cheap, comfortable stay in the great white
4. Want to give your kids a history lesson
and a fun family vacation all mixed into one? Try Boston, where an abundant amount of the country’s
history is right at your fingertips. Lodging and airfare to Boston will be your biggest expense because
most of the city’s attractions are within walking distance. If you stay inside the city make sure you
are within a reasonable distance to the Freedom Trail. This two and a half mile walk will take you
through some of the city’s most historical landmarks.
5. If you do not mind sleeping in a tent
but are not quite ready to rough it to the point of staying in shower-less campgrounds, consider a trip to
one of many hot springs locations across the US. Hot Springs, Arkansas is one of these frequently
visited areas. Camping cuts the lodging fees but the hot springs offer days full off soaking in the
6. For adults, consider saving money on
lodging when visiting Europe through staying in local hostels. Hostels offer people a place to sleep
for little to almost no money. Although the accommodations are far from a quality hotel, if you are
only staying a short time then sleep hostels provide the ultimate way to enjoy a cheap vacation.
Staying in hostels also frees up more money to see the many sights of Europe. Travel across the
continent, staying in a different country each night. Chances are you will be able to find a hostel in
most European nations.
7. If you and your significant other are
looking for a romantic getaway but are not ready to spend large amounts of money, look no further than
getting a great deal on a cruise. Cruise lines such as Carnival Cruise are always offering special
deals on cruises, some of which run as low as $500. Spend a week on a beautiful boat cruising through
the spectacular Caribbean and visiting some of the most exotic, tropical islands in the world. Boats
often make stops to the island and offer island excursions that often do not cost much but offer a day of
thrills and excitement.
8. Ever wanted to travel across the
US? Try doing it with the help of a greyhound – Greyhound Bus Lines that is. Greyhound Bus Lines
offer buses to destinations across the US. If you are a smart bargain hunter you should be able to find
a few cheap motels for lodging along the way. Stopping for a while in a few select cities allows you to
get out and sightsee then continue on later in the day. Some buses even travel overnight, offering the
opportunity to sleep onboard the bus.
9. For an island getaway at a cheap price
try Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico. The Resort offers packages that boast cheap
prices as low as $571 for flights to and from Cancun and a three-night stay at the resort. Enjoy the
warm sun, soft sand and cool ocean water in one of the most beautiful places on
10. If you want to travel to the
Caribbean rather than Mexico, consider the Dominican Republic. Punta Cana Resort in the Dominican
Republic is one of the cheapest island vacations you will find. Hotel rates begin at just over $150 and
most everything else you will need while on the island is relatively cheap. Punta Cana is one of the
most exquisite spots on the Dominican Republic and definitely worth the trip.
