5. Atlanta, GA

The de-facto hub of the South, Atlanta is a peach of a city, home not only to the world headquarters of Coca Cola and Six Flags Over Georgia, but exciting districts like Midtown and, of course, the world’s busiest airport.

International Destinations for Cheap Weekend Getaway Deals

1. Cancun, Mexico

When it comes to cheap weekend getaways south of the border, Cancun is where it’s at. Looking for someplace a bitter farther off the beaten path? Search flights to Cozumel, which gets you up-close and personal with some of Mexico’s best diving.

2. Barbados

The home of pop star Rihanna, and home to natural wonders like Carlisle Bay, Bathsheba Beach, and Harrison’s Cave, Barbados is the picture of exclusivity. Can’t find the Barbados flight you want? Try searching flights to Antigua instead.

3. Costa Rica

A trip to Costa Rica is like a cross section of the planet’s ecological heritage, whether you admire sloths on the Caribbean coast in Cocles, or take a dip in hot springs hotels near Arenal Volcano. Book your flight to San Jose now.

4. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

If it’s all-inclusive Caribbean resorts you’re after, Punta Cana is the place to be. On the other hand, if you want a more authentically Dominican cultural experience, consider searching flights to Santo Domingo instead.

5. Toronto, Canada

Toronto’s not a cheap city, but flights can be surprisingly affordable. TIP: If you’re not afraid of the cold, save on Toronto hotels by visiting during winter. This also tends to produce the clearest skies when it comes to views from the CN Tower!
