These Are the Most Affordable Months to Hit Top Travel Destinations

Ready to put your PTO to good use and plan your next vacay? Yas, girl! Take a luxe getaway with your S.O. or make your first solo trip extra special by nailing down the perfect place for your trip. And no worries if you’re not sure where to go just yet — TripAdvisor’s brand new Travelers’ Choice Awards has just released an updated guide. The company chooses the winners by using an algorithm that factors in the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants, and attractions in cities worldwide (and specifically within the United States), over the last year. You might’ve heard a lot about rising travel hot spots like Reykjavik, Iceland, and Havana, Cuba last year, but you won’t find ‘em on these lists. Read on to find out this year’s winners.

Although Hawaii claimed the majority of the top five spots, travelers still have major love for the Big Apple — claiming first place for the 7th year in a row. Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company, attributes the city’s prime position to its “multicultural neighborhoods, diversity and unique energy of the city.” We totally agree.

Looking to hit up Broadway shows or see some of the world’s most adored attractions while you’re there? According to TripAdvisor, you can expect to shell out around $349 per night on hotel rates and $319 for average roundtrip airfare. The company also suggests adding a newly rated top tour, which will take you inside the MET before it opens to the public in the morning. What a way to start the day!
