Traveling this summer will be expensive due to high gas prices for planes and overcrowded destinations.
Many travelers want to fly overseas, but with rising strikes in places like Europe canceling travel plans, finding a plane ticket for under $400 without disruption can be challenging.
According to a new study from Expedia this year, you can visit ten domestic destinations without paying more than $400 for a ticket.
This is exciting news since the summer is the peak season for tons of places, meaning prices typically rise.
We’ve compiled seven of the destinations from the Expedia study that stand out and have laid out why you should visit them.
Find out which are the top seven domestic destinations to go to for under $400 this summer.
Traveling to New York will be fun this upcoming season. The city has tons to do for travelers, and nothing is better than being in New York City when there are events left and right.
New York is also a great place to be during the summer because you can travel to nearby places like Fire Island or the Hamptons using public transit.
This allows the destination to be versatile and perfect for travelers who are looking for something different.
New York also has places like Bear Mountain, located in Upstate New York, perfect for camping and other outdoorsy activities.
Second on this list is the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles, California.
Traveling here in the summer is great because you can visit places like Hollywood Boulevard, Venice Beach and tour different movie studios.
The weather is moderate, and you won’t run into rainstorms like those during the summer in the northeast.
The City Beautiful is a destination you can visit for less than $400, and it’s perfect since the place is diverse enough to have different experiences.
The theme parks are always fun to see (especially the water parks during this time), and you can venture out to the town, showing you a different side of the destination.
Orlando also announced a connection to South Florida via the high-speed Brightline trains. This would allow travelers to venture from Orlando to places like Fort Lauderdale and Miami within three hours. This makes Orlando a perfect place to visit and have beach day trips.
Las Vegas is fourth on this list for being a destination for less than $400. The desert can get pretty hot during the summer, so it’s more affordable to visit, but there are tons to do in the city.
You can see indoor Broadway-level shows and eat at some of the most fascinating places in the world.
Boston is a beautiful city to visit in the summer. You can explore the urban capital or venture to places like Martha’s Vineyard or Cape Cod.
These two destinations alone can make a summer vacation great since they have beaches and summer festivals and are easy to get to from Boston.
Chicago is similar to New York in the summer, at least weather-wise. It can get a little intense with the heat, but there are almost a million things to do in the city.
You can venture out to the lakes and have a camping adventure or explore what the city can offer during the season.
There’s going to be a lot happening in Chicago this summer, and the city is definitely worth a visit!
Colorado isn’t just for the winter. The beautiful snow-capped mountains you ski across during the winter are also fun places to visit in the summer.
Places like Snowmass have mountain roller coasters and excellent hiking trails. Aspen is another exciting place nearby to visit during the summer.
You can visit attractions like the Denver Art Museum and even check out a beer spa in the city, a surefire way to have an enjoyable vacation.
You don’t have to travel far this summer. Some destinations closer to home are cool enough to visit and won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get to.
