Memorial Day weekend is quickly upon us and signals the unofficial beginning to the summer travel season. Those of you still wondering what to do this year might be interested in U.S. News Travel's list of best summer vacations that was released recently.
Yellowstone National Park ranks high in several categories including "best family summer vacation" (USA of otherwise) and well as for "cheap summer vacation."
Should a beach destination be your calling the list recommends Hawaii – The Big Island as "best beach in the USA" as well as one of the most relaxing. (Sorry, Hawaii is nowhere to be found on the "cheap" list.)
The rankings focused on three key characteristics folks look for when planning a vacation: affordability, quality, and being family-friendly. The methodology employed combines expert and consumer opinions and their recommendations along with those of U.S. News Travel Website users. The finalists were chosen from among more than 200 travel destinations.
Walt Disney is still all the rage as both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California ranked as top family destinations.
