No matter where you go, saving money is always a top priority.

Whether it's flights, awesome resort, or even fun tours, travel costs can add up quickly and come as quite a surprise when it's time to pay your credit card.

As winter winds down, the focus is now on spring destinations. And what better place in the U.S. than Florida?

The Sunshine State isn't just for the college crowd to go wild away from school; it's for everyone who needs a break at some of the top beaches in the U.S.

These are the top 3 cheapest Florida getaways this spring:

Fort Myers

Summer can be muggy and unpleasant in Florida, so there's no better sunny time to visit than spring.

Fort Myers may not be a household name, but this Southwest Florida beach city is perfect for budget travelers.

Travelers who have never been will be shocked with how quickly they fall in love with not only the prices but the incredible attractions like the highly-rated State Parks.

Downtown Fort Myers is set along the Caloosahatchee River, yet still charming and scenic. Tourists pack into the delightful River District, but the gorgeous coastline is where you will find the best bang for your buck for beachfront stays.

Phenomenal beach hotels line the coast from Fort Myers Beach, stretching across Estero Island to Lovers Key, at great prices.

Vacationers can often find rates in the low $200s or less for beachside hotels and vacation rentals throughout spring.

Not to mention, Fort Myers' Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is home to many low-cost airlines, such as Breeze, Frontier and Spirit, so you will surely score cheap airfare.

Fort Lauderdale

Florida has so many incredible places to visit; Fort Lauderdale may be lost within them all.

In fact, did you know this overlooked coastal city is known as ‘The Venice of America'?

While the moon won't hit your eye like a big pizza pie in a storybook gondola ride, Fort Lauderdale's vast 165 miles of waterways live up to the name.

Located a short drive from Miami, Fort Lauderdale has its own unique vibe away from the hustle and bustle of one of America's most cultural cities.

If you've been to Fort Lauderdale before, chances are it was as a gateway to pass through the often much cheaper airport home to multiple low-cost carriers.

With popular budget airline Spirit anchoring Fort Lauderdale's airport (FLL) as a main hub, your vacation can be super affordable.

The beautiful seaside is lined with resorts – many under $200 per night – with various dates from March to May, such as the 4-star B Ocean Resort on the rightfully named Seabreeze Boulevard.


Located along picture-perfect waters on the Florida panhandle, it is a beach paradise travelers can visit on a budget this spring.

It's no surprise spring is one of the most popular times to travel, whether it's a school break, family getaway, or just for the excitement of sunny weather again.

Prices tend to surge when a destination is in high demand, but that's not the case for Destin. This coastal gem is the most affordable of this trio of beach escapes, with beach resorts and condos in Destin proper and neighboring Fort Walton as low as the mid $100's.

The 4-star Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort may be your best overall value, with rates listed as low as $156 for weeklong stays in April.

Destin is a common road trip destination this time of year, but there are also cheap flights at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS).
