Craving a vacation but worried about your budget? Vacationing is something we all look forward to. After all, precious moments spent with friends and family on vacation can provide a lifetime of memories. Planning a trip does not require extensive planning, and you don’t have to blow through a giant budget in order to enjoy a vacation.

If you’re looking to vacation on a budget, here are some top choices:


Atlanta is a great city to visit. It offers unforgettable restaurants, a beautiful and well-kept Welcome to Atlanta in text with the city in the background in blackaquarium, and multiple historic sites. Being such a large city, there is always a food fair, farmers market, or other local events to attend.

Atlanta is an ideal destination for foodies, especially those that crave Southern Barbeque.


Almost everybody knows Nashville as the hub of American rock and country music. This amazing city is home to many different microbreweries, restaurants, and music venues.

Tourists flock to the Country Music Hall of Fame and other music-related landmarks in Nashville. You can also find a wide variety of live music venues as well.

New Orleans

New Orleans is an ideal getaway spot for young couples. The city offers many attractions, with one of the most famous attractions being Bourbon Street. Families also come here for tours of the French Quarters and the multiple swaps in the area that protect endangered wildlife.

Washington D.C.
