vacation is coming up fast for families and anyone looking to get a break half
way through the year. People are always looking for a deal when they travel,
and this summer is no different. Whether you’re traveling abroad or traveling
around home, we hope some of our suggestions will give you a few ideas to start
your summer travels!
abroad is one of the most popular trips for singles, couples and families to
take during the summer months. Because of this, traveling during these times is
considered high-season, and flights are generally a few hundred dollars more
than they are from about October through May. There are ways to still have that
dream vacation through Europe though while still keeping to a budget. Flying to
cities like London, Paris or Rome can sometimes
set you back $1,000 per person (depending of course on where you’re flying out
of). Instead, fly into smaller cities like Dublin
for prices that you’ll often times find below $700 per person. Cities like this
still offer a lot for visitors of any age, with plenty of history and culture
to fill your schedule. Once you’re there, consider getting a rental car or
taking the Eurorail to visit multiple cities while still keeping costs down.

countries throughout Europe may top a lot of peoples Bucket List, there are
plenty of other options for traveling with the family or on your own. If you
and your traveling party are into diving and swimming, you can’t go wrong with
an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. All-inclusives really do have
everything you could possibly need for your stay, while saving you money and
time. Generally, these resorts will all have plenty of opportunity for day
trips and excursions throughout the area to experience something new. One of
the most popular excursions is of course diving around the area you’re staying
in. Someplace like the Grand
Cayman Islands are very popular for this. Of course, you could always just lie
on the beach all day as well!
Europe may be on a lot of people’s mind for a glamorous vacation, there are
plenty of opportunities in our own backyard that are just as good! If it’s a
wine trip you’re looking for, skip the expensive flight to Paris or Florence
and fly into San
Francisco or Oakland to visit the always popular Napa and Sonoma. But if
you’re looking for something smaller (or you’ve already been), there are
vineyards all over the US, in states like Virginia and New York on the East
Coast or Indiana and Michigan in the Midwest. Alternatively, if you’re looking
for a city that has plenty of European appeal, head north to Canada with a
visit to Montreal. Home to over 30 museums, plenty of gardens and restaurants,
it’s a city you’ll definitely find yourself having a lot of fun in, whether
you’re going solo, as a couple or with the family.
it’s history you’re looking for, the obvious choice might be to fly out to
Washington DC. But why not try something like a road trip through historic
Route 66? While it at one time ran from Chicago to LA, there are still portions
of the historic route that can be found on a road trip from the Midwest to the
Southwest. And while the Smithsonian in DC may be well known as one of the best
museums for history, the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn,
MI give it a run for its money! The museum has been home over the years to such
historic artifacts as Thomas Edison’s last breath (in a test tube), the
Allegheny Steam Locomotive (one of the largest ever built) and of course, being
so close to the Motor City,
an exhibit on Automobiles in American Life and Society. Visiting Greenfield
Village during the summer months is literally like walking through time! The
Village includes some replica homes, but there are several homes from notable people
like Noah Webster and Robert Frost that were moved from their original spot to
be in the Village. You can also take in a baseball game on your visit, played
with the rules from 1867.
