One Thousand Dollar Destinations

Where would you travel if you only had $1000 to spend for a vacation?

I have been asked this question by friends and family on numerous occasions. My answer is always “the opportunities are endless”. This may sound unrealistic to many people, but it’s actually true.  For instance, I could choose to take a road trip from Dallas, TX to Austin, TX. One could take the Amtrak from New York City to Washington, D.C. and tour the nation’s capital for less than a grand easily. Maybe I could hop a quick flight from Houston, Texas to Cancun, Mexico and enjoy some authentic enchiladas next to the turquoise blue seas! There are plenty of options even for last-minute getaways.  Rather than me telling you what I could do for $1000, I decided I would show you all the fabulous places you could visit around the United States in a blog series called “One Thousand Dollar Travel Destinations”.

In this weekly series, my goal will be plan a trip somewhere in the United States complete with transportation, lodging, attractions, and even food options. I may even throw in a few international destinations for the globetrotter. Most of the trips will be for individuals and couples BUT I will also try to incorporate some vacation destinations for a family up to 4 people. Gutsy I know. But I know it can be done with the right tools and close attention to detail. For the record, I am not a travel agent. I just love to travel!

Interested in seeing the places we could go? Be sure to subscribe to my blog via email for the trip of the week to come directly to your inbox. You never know, you may feel spontaneous enough to book one of the trips featured. If you have any destinations in mind, leave them in the comments below.

Let’s get ready to travel!!
