25 Best U.S. Vacation Cities On the Cheap

#5: Orlando, Florida

If you’re looking for a family getaway, Orlando is a great option. Home to Disney, Universal Studios (pictured), and Sea World, family fun and entertainment is plentiful. Whether you get your thrills from riding roller coasters or petting sting rays, there are plenty of hotel and theme park packages available now that are budget friendly. If you want to be the coolest kid on the block, ride the new Simpson’s ride at Universal, visit Aquatica (Sea World’s Waterpark), or Busch Gardens Africa.

Although Orlando is best known for theme parks, it has a lot more to offer. The best part? All of these things are free! Enjoy the beautiful sights and smells of A World of Orchids, a 22,500-square-foot conservatory. Visit the eerily picture-perfect town of Celebration on Sunday mornings and catch a free author’s reading while grabbing breakfast at the farmer’s market. Then head downtown to CityArts Factory, five separate and diverse art galleries showcasing hand blown glass to African sculpture.

Don’t Miss: Take a stroll in Big Tree Park and get a photo beside “the Senator,” a bald cypress tree that reaches 118 feet and it approximately 3,500 years old.
