Who’s ready for a winter getaway?
Travel this time of year is a 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? Airfare prices are falling again this year.
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.
