The world is one big copy of “Eat Pray Love,” and you're Julia Roberts, baby!
So what if you just got off a month-and-a-half stretch where you vacationed three times, you're LONG overdue for a vacation. You're not built for desks and Google spreadsheets and Post-it notes. You're a wild gazelle, not some domesticated house iguana.
How does one even vacation, though? How do you do that, really? Actually, better question, WHEN do you do that, really?
Nothing is worse than spending time planning a vacation only to show up somewhere exotic already full of every out-of-state jamoke who had the same idea as you.
Now, you're stuck in lines trying to enjoy your time, and you're barely able to breathe at your destination's most scenic “hidden spots.”
Plus, peak season means peak costs to do anything, so you're also broke and suffering from that once dormant claustrophobia you possess deep down inside.
Thanks to a study by Hipmunk, you can avoid this nightmare. This simple graph breaks down ideal travel dates based on costs to some of America's biggest tourist destinations so you can vacay smarter.
Don't want to go through the graph, you lazy sack of vacation poop? No problem! We did it for you!
