2. Splurge on a Hotel

One of the best parts of traveling is getting to stay in cool hotels. Just because you can’t yet book your flight to Jamaica or Turks and Caicos doesn’t mean you should miss out on the opportunity to relax, and get away from it all. If you live in a big city, you’ll have your pick of the lot when it comes to hotels. And while you don’t want to venture too far into the frugal end when picking your destination (for obvious reasons) there are plenty of affordable, middle-ground options to give you a great, relaxing experience.
