Spring Break is finally here! It’s time to put your work load aside and focus on having some fun in the sun. Setting aside time to create a budget friendly vacation & itinerary can require some research, but will be rewarding in the long run. Whether you plan on partying in style, camping outdoors or lounging poolside, check out these 6 fabulous spring break destinations and how to save money while you’re there!

Las Vegas, Nevada:
With a budget in mind, you can still enjoy this internationally renown city. Instead of booking a room at a trending casino, choose a hotel that meets your needs, because you will rarely spend time in your room! The Monte Carlo Resort or the Luxor Hotel are great options. Most of your day will be spent poolside while night life will be enjoyed at the hottest clubs. Save your money for these outings.

South Beach Miami, Florida:
South Beach is definitely a party city, full of beautiful people and vibrant music. Instead of booking a pricey room beach side, choose an accommodation along the city streets, which is more affordable. You can easily walk to the beach or catch a cab to your selected destination.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico:
Cabo San Lucas is a central spot for west coasters, but most certainly attracts the outdoor enthusiasts. This city has many activities to offer at budget friendly costs, such as visiting Lover’s Beach via water taxi for only $3 per person, or you can book a snorkeling adventure for about $50 per person with gear included! You will surely find an activity to partake in without breaking your bank account.

Dominican Republic:
The Dominican Republic is a great destination full of history and culture. With amazing beaches and all-inclusive accommodations (room + meals), you can save a great load of money.
