The 2012 summer season is quickly coming to an end with the start of school, and a fast approaching Labor Day. It’s not too late to sneak in your summer vacation, if you’ve unknowingly worked it away. As mass traveling slows in coordination with the changing of the leaves, destination rates and expedition costs quickly decrease, making some of summer’s most desirable locations easily accessible. With that in mind, here are four top destinations for end of summer stays!
Branson, Missouri- Centrally located, Branson is usually within driving distance of Memphis, St. Louis, most Midwestern cities, and a half- day drive from New Orleans, Georgia and Knoxville. While major tourist attractions like Silver Dollar City are sure to be busy with families squeezing in a last minute day-cations, discounts on tickets for shows and parks are at an all time low. This is especially true when booking packages like Silver Dollar City and White Water’s Splash and Play Pass. Regularly $90 for adults and $60 for children, these combo tickets are now priced at a third of the cost, $30 and $20 respectively, for an entire week’s visit.
