Who’s ready for a winter getaway?
Travel can be the perfect way to unwind after the rush of the holiday season. Plus, it’s not the most popular vacation time, so it can be easier to take days off from work. Need another reason? Hipmunk says January and February will be two of the cheapest months for domestic airfare.
One of the best ways to save money? Take advantage of offseason prices to get the most bang for your buck in these terrific travel destinations.
Remember that some attractions might be closed or have limited hours during the offseason. And of course, before you go anywhere, check the weather report so you know what to pack for your time in the Big Apple or the Magic Kingdom.
