Short on cash? Try one of these 20 cheap summer vacations.

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.PhotoforJune26Post
  • 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.
