  1. Instead of heading to Orlando for Disney World, travel to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, for Dollywood. Dollywood is cheaper and also has the world’s fastest wooden roller coaster.
  2. While Nashville, Tennessee, is known for its country music, consider Memphis, Tennessee, instead. Memphis is home to Elvis’ famous home, Graceland.
  3. Las Vegas can get expensive, so head to Atlantic City, New Jersey, instead. Vegas may have its famous strip, but Atlantic City has an iconic boardwalk that overlooks a great beach.
  4. Avoid the crowds of New York City and instead travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Experience the hustle and bustle of a metropolitan city in a more relaxed atmosphere.
  5. If you want to experience hipster culture, don’t go to Portland, Oregon. Instead, head to Albuquerque, New Mexico. It’s got stylish coffee shops and breweries, plus plenty of art galleries.
  6. Travel to Detroit, Michigan, instead of booking a trip to Chicago, Illinois. Detroit has recently rebranded itself as a world-class city filled with culture and history.
  7. Instead of making Miami, Florida, your summer travel destination, try San Diego, California. Miami has been named one of the rudest cities in the nation. Why go there?
  8. Sure, Los Angeles is the center of the movie industry, but Atlanta, Georgia, is gaining a reputation as the “Hollywood of the South.” Southern charm, culture, and delicious barbeque. Done.
  9. Avoid San Francisco’s high hills and even higher prices and travel to Providence, Rhode Island, instead. Hey – it’s one of the most welcoming cities to LGBTQ people . . . and it’s cheaper!
  10. For stunning nature and adventure, trade Honolulu, Hawaii, with Olympic National Park in Washington. The climate isn’t tropical, but the views are breathtaking and like nowhere else.
