Jacksonville is one of the larger cities in Florida. It is located where the St. John’s River hits the Atlantic Ocean. There are many nationwide events that occur in Jacksonville each year, making it one of the best cities to travel to for golf courses, beaches, and other fun activities.

Washington, Dc image. Beautiful.
Washington DC… What a view!

Visit Washington DC on a budget??

A bit ago I traveled to Washington DC and it was an incredible experience to say the least. For as little as $2000, I was toured around the city, had a nice hotel room, meals, and seminars as well as a ‘mock congressional’ activity. If you are able to join a group that goes on vacations together, they will most likely go to Washington DC frequently. The Smithsonian’s are fantastic and just the size of all the buildings are awe inspiring.


 

Orlando Florida on a budget
Orlando, home of Disney.

Orlando, Florida

Orlando is a city in central Florida. It has a population of about a quarter million in 2013. Take your family on a Disney vacation and visit Orlando. It may not be the cheapest place to visit but if you save the money; it will be money well spent. I haven’t been to Orlando yet but it is the next place to visit on my bucket list.


 

Chicago, the business center of America.

Chicago, Illinois

Chicago is a city in the great state of Illinois. If you are an architectural student or love architecture, then you will know that Chicago is a city known for its strong architecture and skyline. The city is also known for its stunning arrangement of museums and places to visit.


 

Fort Lauderdale of Flordia. Fantastic beach!

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Next on my list is Fort Lauderdale. This is the location that I hope to retire to one day. The stunning coast and miles of canals are very appealing for older aged people. If you are a boating enthusiast or want to eventually buy a boat; Fort Lauderdale is the place to be. There is great weather all year long and it features upscale restaurants, luxury boutiques and hotels. Similar to Chicago, Fort Lauderdale has some of the most interesting museums you could ever ask for. If you budget right, you’ll be able to frugally visit Fort Lauderdale.
