Finding ways to travel on a budget feels harder and harder these days. With flight prices equating a down-payment on a Kia Sonata, remembering you have student loans, or reveling in the fact that you chose a less-than-lucrative career like writing—it can be hard to find the time and money to travel. 

Luckily, different locations have alternating high/low seasons depending on when the city sees the most foot traffic. So thanks to me, you can peruse a few vacation options that won't require a "I swear I'll Venmo you when we get home."
