Your travel plans don’t have to run your budget into a
deficit this summer. You can make unforgettable memories, find nice restaurants,
visit attractions, and catch some entertainment for less in these great areas.
Phoenix, Arizona: Phoenix
is a great city for travelers because you can get beautiful hotel and lodging
experiences at affordable prices. This
town has sports, spas, and museums within a comfortable distance from the
scenic desert landscape.
Chincoteague, VA: Northern
Virginia gets all the attention for the history, food, and festivals nearby in
the nation’s capital, but families that want a nature getaway go to
the Chesapeake Bay. Chincoteague, Virginia is a well-known summer beach town,
but it is also home to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Bicycles and binoculars
are both a good idea, as they help kids explore the abundant wildlife on the
island. Just outside Chincoteague, the NASA Visitor Center at
Wallops Island Flight Facility is a great place to learn about space! If you
have time for a day or weekend trip while you’re in Chincoteague, there are
nearly 50 wineries within 100 miles of Chincoteague. Chincoteague is also three
hours away from your eSmart Tax Team!
Asheville, North Carolina: About two
hours east of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park,
Asheville is a fresh and hip hidden treasure with a thriving arts and food
scene. Downtown Asheville is full of galleries, shops, restaurants, and
The Biltmore Estate is not too far from Asheville. Gather
the family and take a tour of the house itself.
The surrounding “resort” area offers everything from bike and Segway
rentals to horseback riding and fly-fishing lessons. The pristine mountains
surrounding Asheville also offer numerous outdoor activities including
zip-lining, hiking, and rock climbing as well as steam engine rides on the Great
Smoky Mountains Railroad.

music, theater, art galleries, museums, fine dining, and variety of attractions
make Austin, Texas a fun destination for self-discovery and to satisfy your
craving to travel.
