So we’ve walked you through how to pack and how to vacation on a budget, next on our list is how to pick your next vacation destination! You know that no matter where you go that you’ll have a great time but how do you choose when you have so many great options?!
Here are a few things to consider:
- Determine whom you’re traveling with – your vacation buddies will always be a factor when it comes to the types of vacation you will choose. If you’re with kids, you know to search no further than a thrill seeking spot where your kids will have the time of their lives at different theme parks. Vacationing just you and your husband? Why not go someone a little more romantic and adult centered?
- What type of activities do you like – every city has something unique to it, whether you’re looking for a quieter beach town or a place to gamble with friends this will greatly narrow your location spots. To determine this, think about what type of person you are, if you’re more into culture or adventure. This will ensure that you’re feeding your passions and relaxing at the same time, meaning you’ll be finishing your vacation feeling refreshed.
- Think about your budget – we’ve already explained the benefits of planning out expenses when it comes to a vacation but once this is done make sure to pick a city that fits within your budget. Certain cities can be pricier than others so by doing the proper research before you go you can ensure that your wallet stays safe and you stay happy.
- Think of the weather – this may sound silly but this can be a huge determining factor when it comes to your vacation! Do you feel like having cool crisp air hit your skin as you go skiing down a mountain? Or do you want to feel the hot rays bronze your skin as you lay out by the beach?
