The U.S. News & World Report Ranks it as the 9th best beach in the U.S. It is known for its long stretch of sand, the boardwalk and the “Little Vegas”.
Hotels in Atlantic City can be as cheap as $125 a night, and there are so many places you can enjoy for free. Did I mention the “long stretch of sand” and the boardwalk? Yes, it is free.
The nightlife scene is as alive as the day in this summer getaway. If you’re up for some night of dancing and cocktails, this place is dotted with nightclubs and bars for you to enjoy.
A Grand View at a World Heritage Site
If the beach isn’t your kind of thing and you just want to keep your feet on the ground, why not go camping at Arizona’s natural wonder, the Grand Canyon.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is so magnificent that the word “Grand” is such an understatement.

What’s the cheapest accommodation? Camping! You’ve got the galaxy over your head as your ceiling at night. And when it’s time to wake up, who needs an alarm clock when you have the morning sun rising over the horizon.
If you’re a first timer, the South Rim has places with amenities for your comfort without leaving you less awestruck. For the true adventure seeker, head to the North Rim. There, you are secluded to just Mother Nature and a few campers and hikers.

We just can’t have enough of the beach! If you’ve been dying to learn how to surf, this beach could be a good place for you.
When you live in New York, you can take the subway going to Rockaway Beach. And as its name suggests, waves are consistent in this area where you can just rock away with your surfboard.
