Avoid holidays

Steer clear of traveling on holiday weekends. Prices are raised and things sell out early on holidays such as Memorial Day and Fourth of July. Instead, plan to travel on random weekends to avoid crowds. This will give you something to look forward to during a hard week at work while also keeping your wallet happy.

Stay close to home

You only have two or three days to enjoy your getaway and there’s no fun in spending your entire time traveling. Make the most of your weekend by staying close to home. Create your own adventure and explore the areas closest to you. You could discover something completely unexpected, plus you’re cutting down on the expense of traveling to farther places.

Rest, Relax, and Rewind

Treat yourself to a relaxing weekend and recharge your batteries. Don’t cram a lot of things to do in such a short span of time. Not only will this save you some money, but it will offer a refreshing pick-me-up before Monday comes. Keep your getaway simple by spending the weekend in the woods reading that book you’ve always wanted or basking in the sun and finally working on your tan.
