When it comes to enjoying a last-minute holiday, the early bird doesn’t always get the worm. There are plenty of Internet websites and travel agencies that can set you up with a great deal.
Head for Washington, D.C.
With sites like Hotwire.com, you can save up to 50 percent booking a hotel at the last minute. Washington D.C. is chock full of fun attractions and historic landmarks. You don’t even have to worry about counting pennies with many free attractions like the National Zoo, Smithsonian Museum, Jefferson Memorial and Lincoln Memorial. With the savings, you can dine out at an upscale restaurant or pay for admission to the recently added Newseum. The views of the National Museum from this museum are amazing.
Bring Out Your Inner Child
Just about any travel agency can help you arrange last-minute flights, accommodations and tickets for the fun-filled theme parks in Orlando. You can even opt for flex tickets, which offer admission to up to six theme parks in Orlando. Enjoy your childhood fantasy characters at Disney World, swim with the dolphins at SeaWorld and get an adrenaline rush on some of the thrilling rides at Busch Gardens. Travel agencies make impromptu getaways a breeze.
Call a Friend
Think of all the friends you have and give them a call. Chances are you have some friends who live by major attractions. For example, if you’ve got a friend in Phoenix, you can make arrangements to stay with them while enjoying major sites like the Desert Botanical Gardens, Camelback Mountain and the Phoenix Zoo. If you’ve got some Yankee friends in New York, your friend can take you to all the iconic sites, such as Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Statue of Liberty, Central Park and the Empire State Building. Friends are always a great last-minute holiday solution.
