4 Low-Budget Weekend Getaways Lauren Saccone November 6, 2017 Travel Guide After a long, hot summer, it’s finally time to enjoy the changing of the seasons. Fall is here, and with it you might be feeling the itch to travel. What better time to explore and get in some last-minute relaxation before the hustle and bustle of the holidays begins? November is the perfect time to escape on a weekend and relax a little without having to worry about hurting your holiday budget. Here are a few great places for low-budget weekend getaways that will make this a November to remember. Cancun, Mexico Not quite ready to embrace the cold weather and changing leaves of fall? Then a quick weekend getaway to Cancun, Mexico might be just what you need. November is the ideal month to hit up the gorgeous beaches and popular hangouts of the city, as there’s a rare lull in the tourist trade. You can score a reasonably priced weekend getaway and explore the culture, or just soak up the sun on one of its pristine beaches. New Orleans, USA Want a weekend full of fun, excitement, and some of the best food in America? Then book a flight to New Orleans this November. It’s the perfect spot for a weekend getaway; rates are low in New Orleans come early winter, meaning you can save big on your quick trip. Since it’s off-season, you’ll be able to explore this historic and utterly beautiful city to your heart’s content, without having to contend with enormous crowds. You’ll be able to wine, dine, and party as much you want…and still be back in time for work on Monday morning! Rio de Janeiro, Brazil With shockingly low rates for the month of November, Brazil is the ideal place for a long weekend. Let’s be honest; if you can swing a little extra time here, it will be well worth the effort. Rio de Janeiro has pristine beaches, a killer nightlife, and tons of historical locations to check out. Book a tour to soak up the local culture, and check out any events or festivals going on. Sure, you could pack it all into a few quick days. But trust us, once you see it with your own eyes, you’ll be tempted to turn that weekend getaway into a slightly longer adventure. Toronto, Canada In the lull before the holidays, a Toronto vacation is remarkably reasonably priced. You can get a flight and accommodations all on a budget. That means more money on hand to enjoy the holidays (and maybe splurge a bit on your vacation). Toronto is a great city to visit any time of the year, with a host of art galleries, museums, and restaurants to fill your days. But it’s even better in November, when airfare rates drop and you can book a hotel for a fraction of the normal cost. Be sure to make an itinerary before you go — with so much to see in such a short space of time, you won’t want to miss a thing. Are you ready for some fall fun? Why not start planning your next trip to one of these beautiful locations?
