While many people prefer to plan out the details of their well-earned vacation time months in advance, there is a certain appeal to taking last minute getaways. If you're adventurous and are flexible in terms of the dates you leave as well as where you travel to, you can find last minute package deals in places that are normally quite expensive.
One of the most common places for a cheap last minute vacation package is the
beautiful islands of Hawaii. Each of
the islands in Hawaii has a number of luxurious resorts, vacation rentals, and
discounted hotels to choose from. Some vacation packages include airfare from
a major city in the U.S. (usually Los
Angeles), lodging at a hotel or resort, and a rental car. If you can't decide
on just one island to visit, you may want to look for an interisland cruise
that makes a stop at a few of the Hawaiian Islands. Maui is the place where
many adventurous travelers find last minute vacation packages. A favorite island
for honeymoons and weddings, a vacation in Maui
can include hiking across the Iao
Valley or spending a few days at Haleakala
National Park. Although Kauai is one of the least visited Hawaiian Islands,
last minute vacation packages have increased in popularity through the years.
You don't have to spend a lot to appreciate the beauty of Kauai.
One of the best ways to see the island is by hiking on the Kalalau Trail in
the northern region of the island or simply spending the day enjoying Kauai
beaches and canyons. Some Hawaii package deals include airfare and accommodations,
while many packages are fully escorted tours through the islands.
One of the most common places for an unforgettable and cheap last minute vacation
package is Las Vegas. Nonstop
shows and entertainment, incredible nightlife, and exciting gaming are some
of the things you can look forward to with a Las Vegas vacation. Most last minute
package deals to Vegas combine a hotel and airfare for one low price. A cheap
last minute vacation package to Las Vegas usually includes a show or free cover
at a nightclub. Couples flock to Las
Vegas wedding chapels for last minute
weddings on the Las
Vegas Strip. No matter how you decide to spend your time in Las Vegas, great
last minute package deals can usually be found for a reasonable price, especially
for a weekend. Try the booking tool on this page to compare prices on hotels,

If your idea of fabulous last minute vacation packages calls for Broadway shows
and world class museums, New York City
is where you want to be. New York package deals usually bundle a hotel room
and airfare and occasionally offer last minute ticket deals to famous sites
such as the Empire
State Building or theater performances. You can get ultra cheap package
deals between mid-November and early March. Although the weather can be quite
harsh with occasional freezing temperatures, there are enough things to do in
New York City to occupy your time regardless of the weather.
