Everyone needs a break by the time summer approaches. Looking forward to sleeping in, staying up, and letting the day pass you by without a deadline or school project to complete. 

The escape of summer is necessary for the mind to rest and recuperate in preparation for the next school year. Vacations are always a great way to achieve this, letting the brain wander while having a fun time in the company of those most loved. 

However, for some, vacation isn’t always in the cards; these days everything is a bit more on the expensive side and affordable options are hard to come by. 

According to U.S News and World Report, there are many options that are under budget yet, just as fun as any trip and adventure. 

The first one is Glacier National Park located on the border of Canada and Montana, named after the glacier remnants from the ice age. The top 3 things to do while you’re down there are Going-to-the-Sun-Road, Trail of Cedars, and finally the Red Bus Tour. 

Next, there is Niagara Falls. It is positioned between the U.S. and Canada. The best things to see while you are down there are Maid of the Mist, Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens & Butterfly Conservatory, and finally the Old Fort Niagara. The Best time to visit is during the months of June and August, temperatures are perfect.

Last, but certainly not least; Bar Harbour is pinpointed in Maine. Famously known as Acadia National Park. They have the best whale-watching tours in Maine. The best things to do In bar Harbor are, site seeing at the Acadia National Park, taking a walk along the shore path, and finally Bar Harbour boat tours. One good thing to know is even during the warmest of months there still is a chill. Bar Harbour can dip down to the ’50s at night. 

These beautiful American destinations can be accessible to all. Though airfare can be an expense, impressive sights, and wonders can almost always be found in close proximity.
