These days, more and more families are taking “staycations” instead of vacations. Most of the time, families are making decisions like this because their finances just don’t allow them to spend a substantial amount on their vacations.
But, what if you weren’t limited by your income? What if you won Publishers Clearing House’s $5,000 a Week “Forever” Sweepstakes? Think about it; you could plan an exciting adventure for your family and it would only cost you about a week’s pay.
Which begs the question – where would you go? We have a few ideas. Here are five vacations you could take with your family for less than one week’s pay (if you win the $5,000 a Week “Forever” Sweepstakes, that is).
- Waikato, New Zealand
If you loved the Lord of the Rings movies, or the books they’re fashioned after, then a vacation to Waikato, New Zealand will bring you up close and personal with the lush countryside that played such a role in the movies. Book a 14-day group tour and you’ll get to visit Peter Jackson’s Weta Workshop, Queenstown, Bilbo’s magical Shire, Trollshaw, and so much more. You’ll even be able to climb the magnificent Edoras and stay in an actual Hobbit motel. Get the full LOTR experience, all for less than $4,000 US.
- British Virgin Islands
A vacation to the British Virgin Islands might sound expensive, but you can enjoy five days and nights of sheer beauty and beachside living at the Peter Island Resort and Spa for about $900 (double occupancy) per night. It’s the perfect place to escape from life’s stresses and worries. While you’re here you can lounge on the beach all day or take to the water and go exploring.
- Catalina Island, California
You don’t have to leave the U.S. to experience a beautiful beach vacation. At the Descanso Beach Club in Catalina Island, California, you’ll enjoy everything this private getaway has to offer for just $229 per night. You’ll be able to dance the night away with the exclusive weekly beach parties, enjoy relaxing massages by the sea, take the exciting Zip Line Eco Tour, and dine at the resort’s incredible restaurant. If that’s not enough for you, then there’s also a golf course, a casino, plenty of shopping opportunities, and more.
- St. Lucia
St. Lucia is someplace you might have always wanted to visit, but probably never have because of the expense. But, with a $5,000 a week income, St. Lucia isn’t just within your reach, it’s downright affordable. A vacation at the Capella Marigot Bay allows you to enjoy its scenic cove beach, luxurious accommodations, pampering spa, its famous rum cave, and more, all for $550 per night.
For a truly unique and completely memorable cultural vacation, Morocco is hard to beat. This has long been one of the world’s most affordable vacation destinations (besides the cost of the flight) because this is an ancient and rather rustic part of the world. You can get a bed in a charming restored riyad here for less than $100 a night. Plus, you’ll find the food inexpensive, the streets crowded, the alleys winding, and more than a fair share of donkeys and traffic jams, but if you’re more interested in having a culturally enlightening vacation instead of a pampered one, then your $5,000 will go an extremely long way here.
