Inexpensive Summer Vacations

Updated on May 20, 2014

Stay Close to Home for an Inexpensive Vacation

In times when people need to tighten their belts, being a frugal traveler is essential to set aside some extra. The truth is inexpensive summer vacations are really not hard to find. With some budgeting along with creative thinking and planning, you can conveniently come up with great vacation ideas to spend a worthwhile summer.

Exploring your hometown is an excellent option. When you say summer vacation, it does not always mean that you have to go out of the county. Most of the time, the best places to see are just nearby. The rewarding way to spend summer is to get to know your place. Start by scouring places within your area that you have not yet visited.

If you have a relative or friend living in an adjacent city or the countryside, summer is the best time to visit them. It will be a good opportunity to catch up with them and at the same time tour around their place. Ask them to show you around so you can spend some quality time together.

You do not need to spend more than what you should in order to have a memorable summer. Remember that you can still enjoy a terrific summer escapade even if you are on a budget.

    Come to Sweden, where an inexpensive vacation is just a local trip the summer house and forest where you can pick berries. Blueberries, cloudberries and raspberries grow wild here and many vacationers like to stop and pick them =). You can pick freely here, even on private property!
