Summer is near and finding that perfect spot for a vacation that meets your budget can be hard. Maybe one of these ideas may be just what you are looking for.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The Beach is usually on everyone’s bucket list for the summer. Getting a hotel on the beach is a wonderful idea for vacation but finding the perfect location is hard, especially when on a budget. Myrtle Beach is perfect for this. With miles of sand, charter boats ready to take you fishing, an aquarium, and plenty of restaurants with oceanfront tables are to offer.

On the boardwalk, there are plenty of amusements ready for your pleasure such as an enormous Skywheel, a Slingshot, and a roller coaster called the "Twist 'n' Shout." Westgate Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort has beach access, ocean views, an area for just the kids, and a policy that kids eat free, according to CNN Travel.

Washington, D.C.

If you are looking for an educational vacation, Washington, D.C. awaits your arrival. This town offers more things to do for your money than any other place. Who does not enjoy getting a tour of our nation’s capital? If that isn’t up your alley, maybe the Smithsonian Institution, or the Library of Congress. CNN Travel claims that the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr.

Memorials are all ready for your visit as well.

Charlotte, North Carolina

For those race fans and pizza lovers, North Carolina’s largest city is the perfect spot for that summer vacation. While you are not at the raceway or eating that cheesy slice of pizza, there is an amusement park, museums, including the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

If a little extra adventure is on your to-do-list, there are other options like whitewater rafting and mounting biking. According to The Daily Meal, this is the home of the state’s best pizza.

Jacksonville, Florida

If you want the lowest hotel rates in the state with plenty of options for food while enjoying the sun, this is the spot.

There are so many different things that can be done in this big city. Schedule the beach for one day, a hike for the next day, go to an art gallery, shopping, or even a kayak tour. Jacksonville, Florida “has it going on” claims The Daily Meal.

Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

If quietness is what is desired, this is just it. With miles of trails to be explored and fishing and hiking activities, this could not be any better. Cabins can be rented out in Gatlinburg, Tennessee at a low price with the view you want, whether it be a mountaintop view or a secured wooded area. If just a little excitement is wanted, don’t forget about Dollywood where there are thrill rides and authentic Tennessee food and music. Whatever you choose, you can make the perfect vacation possible here.
