Cheap Destinations For The Rest Of Summer

By Parker Diakite


Summer is a prime season to travel and the demand from people itching to get away means that flight and hotel prices tend to be more expensive than usual.

If you’re looking to get out of town this summer but you don’t want to spend a ton of money, here are four destinations that you should book right now.


Ever since Southwest Airlines began flying to Hawaii, competition among airline carriers has driven the cost of airfare down.

Flights to Honolulu and Kauai are priced between $300 and $450 in August, according to Google Flights.

Hawaii is a popular destination for tourists, so activities can get pricey. Stick to eating out at the farmer’s market, going grocery shopping, and plan to spend a lot of time at the beach.
