Look at last minute ski trips; as it heads towards the end of season, look for deals in places like Mountain Creek, NJ (where for $100 you can learn to ski, rent equipment and enjoy the mountain all day) or Whiteface Mountain in NYC which boasts hotels like Whiteface Lodge that provide great package deals, such as the ‘midweek ski for free package.’
Europe is a great option now before the summer flight prices rise. Choose a destination and download a flight price-tracking app like hopper travel to see when flights drop (oh and hotels are equally more modest in March than summer months.)
Look into alternative transport; consider a train trip or road trip as you don’t need to fly to have fun. Amtrack your way along either coast or take the car and embrace your spontaneous side! (e.g. explore Boston by Amtrack from NYC for as low as $70 each way.)
Book a casino weekend; for west coasters, Vegas is a great value option & for East Coasters consider NJ’s Atlantic City – hotels are always cheap in casino towns and you don’t even have to gamble to have fun
Look online at websites like priceline.com or lastminute.com or download apps like hoteltonight which offer great last minute deals on 5* city hotels for as little as $70 a night!
