Planning an impromptu vacation this August? August is a busy time for travel but it is possible to find beautiful, warm, affordable destinations if you know where to look.
Here are 4 affordable travel destinations in August:
1. Barbados, Caribbean
August is hurricane season in the Caribbean, so the days are humid and hot but it is still possible to travel there safely, plus at this time of the year you will have gorgeous beaches almost to yourself.
The islands might not be as lively but travel here in August will be cheaper.
2. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Similar to the Caribbean, August is hurricane season in the Dominican Republic.
This means that in exchange for cheaper rates and a quieter vacation, you might be dealing with heavy winds and rainfall for part of your stay. Still, you can expect warm weather and some sunshine.
3. Berlin, Germany
If you really want to travel to Europe, Berlin is one of the most affordable major cities for tourists, and the weather in August is perfect for sightseeing.
For summer months, the earlier you book the more likely you are to find deals for Germany, but there are plenty of activities, restaurants, and places to stay while you’re there.
4. New York City, New York
New York City can be a little more expensive in terms of accommodation but once you get there you will love the weather and liveliness of the city.
The perks to heading to NYC in August include concerts, festivals, and many other fun free events that you won’t want to miss!
