Need plans for Fall Break? We have a few ideas that might be helpful.
Tour Where You Be
Go all Lonely Planet on your own city with wcities.com (also a phone app) for cool attractions, concerts, and activities.
Milk Your Student Discount
Try studentuniverse.com for trips by air or rail. See “FarePlay” to get trip deals from your city.
Rock the Rental
Instead of shelling out for a hotel with buds, check out the site vrbo.com (Vacation Rentals by Owner) and score a mucho cheapo cabin or condo for your group.
Seat-of-your-pants kind of traveler?
Try us.lastminute.com. Enter your departure city and let the Web site search for the best prices for airfare, hotel accommodations, and vacation package deals.
Hike with the Grands
Student discounts are chump change compared to senior discounts. Travel with Grammy and Pappy to get to know them and enjoy their America the Beautiful pass for free admission to national forests. (They can get three people over age 16 in free.)
Searching for the abnormal?
Search weirdus.com to see if your state has some wacko spots you’ve overlooked. And if you find something bizarre not yet recorded on the site, you can submit it yourself and keep others in the know.
