Top 5 / North America

Is your travel budget getting a little tight? If you’re looking for a budget-friendly travel destination this summer, there’s no reason to settle for the same old beach locale or tourism hot spot that you know consistently offers more affordable travel rates. Instead, get off the beaten path with one of these budget-friendly travel destinations.


While you may be more familiar with the more expensive, nearby Jackson, Wyoming, you can save a little cash on your outdoor explorations this summer by choosing Cheyenne instead. With a bevy of free or affordable outdoor activities right at Cheyenne’s front door, you’ll have plenty to fill your itinerary, including seeing the sights at the Black Hills, Devils Tower, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.


If you plan to head south this summer, consider exploring the culture of Natchez, Mississippi, rather than setting your sights on New Orleans. Nicknamed the Little Easy as opposed to the Big Easy, Natchez offers lots of local shopping, great eats, spooks and history, all in a setting that’s incredibly walkable.


Asheville may be a North Carolina hot spot, but you can experience the Blue Ridge mountains and southern charm of the state on a budget by getting out of the city. Jackson County offers similar charm at a more agreeable price point in nearby Sylva, North Carolina.


If you’re dying for a beach vacay, consider Coastal Mississippi versus some of the other, pricier beach destinations in the Carolinas or Florida. In addition to beaches, the coast also offers a rich maritime history, lots of seafood and casinos.


Called the next Austin, Texas, Bentonville, Arkansas, blends small-town convenience with outdoor fun (it’s also home to the Mountain Biking Capital of the World). A growing art and music scene, plus a culinary scene quickly gaining attention, are just the icing on the cake.
