" Ski vacations in the summer! Here's something I bet you never thought of - hitting the slopes for some summer fun.
What? That's crazy! (I know that's what you're thinking.

Another great place to travel in the off season and find some amazing prices on hotels and flights is the Caribbean.
The only thing you will need to keep in mind is you may arrive during the hurricane season so check the forecast carefully before you go, and purchase travel insurance.
But honestly, you can visit really cheap during this time and save lots.
A theme park vacation is nice too! Taking advantage of state resident discounts makes the theme parks one of the most fun cheap vacation spots for the young and young at heart.

Annual passes save a ton of money as well if you plan to be in the area more than a few days.
Whatever you do, don't pay the regular daily price.
