Flights are expensive. I often have enough hotels and cars to get my rooms and rent for free, but I will still break the bank if I only travel by flight.
The thing is, after all, I wanted to go out of my way. Who doesn't want to see the world? Fortunately, there are some destinations that are usually cheaper than others. If you can book early and get the right price, you might get a huge break.
1. Chicago: Consistently cheapest airfare from just about anywhere in the US, Chicago is such a mid-sized metropolitan hub that, fortunately, airlines make it easy for anyone to get there. Although not the lightest or largest city, it has a lot to offer, especially if you've never been!
2. Orlando: Fortunately for us all Disney fanatics, Orlando is the second cheapest in terms of airfare. It varies greatly depending on the season, but overall, the biggest cost here will be the Disney Park tickets themselves.
3. Washington D.C .: Another cheaper option all year, Washington DC is always the right choice for a visit. There's a lot of history, but it's also a hopping city if you're looking for something more relevant. Obviously, this is the political world if you are curious about it, but even architecture is fun to go with if you don't want to. Cherry blossoms are also gorgeous in spring!
4. New York City: Oh, NYC. If you have never been, board the aircraft and check it at least once. While tickets are not as cheap as others on this list, they are not crazy either. Most flights have a stop in New York, making it a little possible to travel to. The city is amazing (albeit expensive) with almost endless things to do.
5. Austin, Texas: Since I've never been to Austin, I can't give a personal recommendation, but it tells me it's a fun but very spiritual city (do they even go out together?). I also know that, again, many flights here have stops, which usually make it cheaper; nor is it a huge holiday destination, so it is likely to be cheaper than other tourism-based cities.
For additional discounts, try using apps that hide your browser location so airlines don't check where you are looking and raise prices (seriously, I've saved over $ 50 this way). Welcome to discount travel in the US!
