The Beginning Of Spring Break

Although June is classified as the beginning of Spring Break and more people are traveling because kids are out of school, there are still a few places you can travel to on a budget and have a good time. I’m going to list a few that I have found with reasonable rates and some may even be close enough that you can drive to.

Daytona Beach

Daytona boasts an abundance of cheap hotels, inexpensive Daytona Beachrestaurants and plenty of package deals.

Daytona residents love their cars, so you can expect to see some tricked out automobiles on the road, at the speedway, and even on the beach.

Some Things To Do:
  • Climb to the top of one of the oldest lighthouses in the United States.
  • Enjoy some peace and quite at the Museum of Art and Sciences.
  • Take a drive on the beach in your car (where permited)
  • Visit theme parks like the Daytona 500 Experience and The Dragon Lagoon.
  • Check out Main Street and Seabreeze Boulevard for a collection of Bars and clubs, some of which cater specifically to the bikers that frequent the area.
  • Spend the day at the Beach.
  • Enjoy shopping in town.

Puerto Rico

Determining Puerto Rico’s charm is a no-brainer. Less than a threePuerto Rico hour flight from Miami. this Island is a U.S. territory. So when you’re shopping in San Juan you can pay for your souvenirs with American bills. Puerto Rico has both 20-ft waves for the surfers and calm, clear waters for families. It’s an exhilarating mix of landscapes, from the serpentine jungle of El Yunque to the corkscrew caves of Parque de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy. And if you want to get away from civilization entirely, you can ferry over to the secluded- not to mention- jaw droppingly gorgeous – islands of Vieques and Culebra.

Puerto Rico2Puerto Rico offers year-round affordable packages so travelers can relax along it’s blanched sands. Follow a pulsating beat to the dance clubs in the Santurce neighborhood, catch some live music in a Ponce lounge or grab a casual drink at a San Sebastian bar.

Many Puerto Ricans speak English, but Spanish is the language of daily life. Packing a Spanish phrasebook is handy, and Puerto Ricans welcome your efforts to converse with them in Spanish. Since Puerto Rico is part of the United States, the island’s currency is the U>S> dollar and credit cards are widely accepted. Tipping etiquette is the same here as in other parts of the United States; 15 to 20 percent is considered the standard, but more is appreciated for exceptional service.

With my comparison between motels and, it seems that might offer the better prices. Make sure you check them out while checking out your favorite travel site.

Myrtle Beach

The clean beaches are the main draw to Myrtle Beaches, but there’sMyrtle Beach more to her than miles of brown sand.   One of the best East Coast family vacation destinations, boasts hundreds of Golf courses for golfers at all levels, amusement parks that fling the kiddies around on water rides, roller coasters, and race tracks, and Ripley’s Aquarium, which dares visitors to commune with the sharks.

  1. Hi Cathy,
    I would like to visit Singapore also. As far as you visiting Daytona, you can use some of the services that I listed below the post to get an idea of what it would cost you to come here. You would definitely enjoy Daytona. It’s a beautiful place and full of cars all fixed up. Your children would love it…lol

  2. Hi Ana,

    It would be hard for me to give you an exact price, because a lot depends on where you want to stay and what dates you would be interested in. You can use the services I listed at the bottom of this post and get an idea. The best to me is the Homeaway where you can actually rent a house or apartment, especially with a family.

  3. Hi Lureita, I haven’t been to any of the above mentioned places. I live in Singapore. An island which is sunny all year round. The Daytona beach looks like an interesting venue as the keeps love to see cars and visit theme parks. It would be an ideal destination. If I can afford the trip I’ll definitely go there.

    Thanks for the sharing Lureita. I will keep these places in mind if I have the chance and the money.


  4. Hi Lureita, I haven’t been to any of these places, I live in Europe and we also have good places to go for the vacations. I hope I get to visit the places you mention here they look amazing. How much would one week cost for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids)?

  5. Hi Kevin,
    Myrtle Beach is a very nice place with a lot to see. I have actually been there once and we had a great time. I want to go back because there is just so much that we didn’t get to see or do.

  6. Hi Regina, you are right. There are some places that are not on the beach, that I should list. I will try to do that in my next post. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

  7. I’ve been to 2 of the 3 you have listed. I guess Myrtle Beach needs to be put on my list. It looks like a great destination.

  8. I don’t really like crowded, hot beaches, but that’s because I take them for granted, coming from a tropical place. But I suppose the sunsets and sunrises at these places must be beautiful, from looking at the photos!

    Thanks for sharing, will keep these places in mind if I have the chance to visit the U.S.
