Before you know it, your national day is really a thing, a moment to be celebrated at the same time each year by people who have nothing else to do with their lives as well as people who work for some council whose job it is … [Read more...] about It’s National (fill in the blank) Day?

And while the cost of flights is never as low as most travelers want it to be, I’ve even found budget-friendly flights to many of these spots. Plan your next escape to one of these surprisingly cheap places to travel. Hawaii Affordable airfare is making the everyman’s bucket list trip a reality for 2019 (and we’re not just talking about flights from the West Coast). According to Airfarewatchdog, SmarterTravel’s sister site, some flights to Hawaii actually cost less than $500 from East Coast and Midwest cities in 2018. The reason?
