There are travel destinations that are more affordable in the summer than the fall and winter. For example, places that are well known for skiing and winter sports are more affordable in the summer. The same goes for areas like Vermont that are extremely popular in the fall because of the scenery. If you’ve always wanted to visit Aspen, Colorado, summer is a great time.

Look for Beach Locations That Aren’t Tourist Traps

Going to the beach doesn’t have to be expensive. Look for beach locations that aren’t tourist traps. For example, you want to avoid places like Daytona because they cater to tourists. Instead think about visiting towns that are several miles away from the big destinations. The prices get less expensive the further away you get.
