Cheap Getaways on Your Last Dime

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Yes, you still want to go on vacation this summer, but you probably don't have the same budget to spend that you once did, correct? If that is the case, it is time to start to explore off of the beaten path, meaning that you need to look for cheap and local getaways that will give you a wonderful and memorable vacation experience.

Chicago: In the nearby town of Galena, you will find a beautiful and historic appeal. This is three hours away from Chicago, and there are unique Victorian mansions, bed and breakfasts, and a local eateries offering delicious cuisine. You can pay admission to see many of the historic sites within the town, like $4 to see the home of Ulysses S. Grant. Not too shabby...

Los Angeles: If you are in the California area and want to get out of town, why not check out Catalina Island? This is a popular and beautiful destination, and the round-trip ferry from San Pedro or Long Beach to Catalina Island is around $66 per person. There are delightful little cottages in the area that you can rent, not to mention a delicious steakhouse or seafood restaurant at your disposal. This is truly the finest locale that you can get for a low cost.

New York City: A short drive away from the city is Litchfield, CT, which is a classic and beautiful area of New England. Here you will find covered bridges, tall trees, and winding roads to add a little bit of romance to your vacation. There are many different bed and breakfasts to choose from, and you can also do tastings at the local Haight-Brown Vineyard for only $8.50 per person.

As you can see, your upcoming summer vacation doesn't have to break the bank. All it takes is a little bit of creativity to find the perfect destination at half of the price!
