Summer is still here, and that means there is still time to put a big check mark next to "travel" on your summer bucket list. One of the most common reasons for avoiding international travel is price, but we can leave that one in the dust. There's so many places to visit outside of the Dominican Republic, especially after that suspicious liquor situation. These 5 cheap travel destinations for Georgians to visit this summer are less than $600 round-trip so pack your bags (camera included).
Why you need to go: Explore some of the largest and most beautiful cities in South America while also venturing out for a hike to catch some breath-taking views. Nightlife here is lit and there are tons of ancient historical gems to visit, like Huaca Pucllana and Basilica y Convento de San Francisco de Lima.
Why you need to go: Anchorage's vast wonderland of stunning nature calls for lots of exploring outdoors. Temps in August are typically between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's the perfect way to cool off from the Georgia heat. Must-see spots include Chugach State Park and Portage Glacier.
Why you need to go: Of course you need to visit the cute little red phone booth for the iconic insta pic, but there is much more to see than just that. Stare in awe at gorgeously-detailed structures like the The Tower of London and take a boat ride through River Thames under the Tower Bridge.
San Jose, Costa Rica
Why you need to go: Despite its name, Iceland is actually not cold right now. Summer temps are typically between 50 - 60 degrees Fahrenheit so you can chill on some gorgeous beaches, like Djupalonssandur (no, we didn't fall asleep on our keyboard). You also have to scope out Hallgrimskirkja, which is quite possibly the most unimaginable structure ever.
