Just because you’re a college student doesn’t mean you can’t go on vacation this summer, especially when there are places you can visit that aren’t too ridiculously expensive. The folks at U.S.News & World Report offer 10 cheap places where you can go.
They chose these locations based on the average hotel rate and the price of air fare:
- Amsterdam, the Netherlands
- Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
- San Juan, Puerto Rico
- Denver, Colo.
- Florence, Italy
- Charlotte, N.C.
- Paris, France
- Albuquerque, N.M.
- Dublin, Ireland
- Phoenix, Ariz.
However, if those locations are still a bit of a stretch for you, how ‘bout choosing a vacation based on its theme park? U.S.News & World Report also ranks America’s best theme parks:
- Luna Park, Brooklyn, N.Y.
- Walt Disney World, Orlando, Fla.
- Dollywood, Pigeon Ford, Tenn.
- Universal Orlando, Fla.
- Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Waterpark, New Braunfels, Texas
- Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio
- Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pa.
