Even if the school is back in session and the calendar says September, it really is not too late to do something fun and financially smart, too. I’m talking about actual intake in late summer. Now, before you think that the summer vacation time is over, feel that summer officially ends September 30 really will give you a couple of weeks to squeeze a last minute trip or a long weekend of real rates.
Many people underestimate the “power of one weekend in September,” says travel guru, author and MochaManual.com “mommy blogger” Kimberly Seals Allers. “But a lot of great deals available from now until September 30. ”
September was currently working on a ground of San Francisco, Washington DC and all points in between, because hotels, restaurants, airlines and other travel-related companies are eager to attract customers during what is traditionally a slow season. So if you have a little ‘flexibility in scheduling, which makes the final weeks of September, in prime time discounted travel.
To escape friends’, people with children, or people who are interested in African-American history, Allers recommended Orlando, FL area primary goal worthy of consideration. At this time, the city of Orlando to pull out all the stops to attract visitors to the packaging of all 50% discount on hotel rates for sweet foods offered steep discounts on attractions and places of local interest.

Beyond the theme parks of Orlando known, Allers said the next eco-tourism in the region is sure to be a hit with kids of all ages, especially in activities such as Tyrolean Gatorland, learning local birds in an aviary, or take an airboat ride in the Everglades of Florida to enjoy nature.
In July, Allers took his daughter Kayla, 11, and his son, Michael 7, in these places and the kids had a blast. The family also visited the Kennedy Space Center, a short trip to Orlando, and had a meet and greet with an astronaut.
Orlando shopping and dining is the draw of friends traveling together, Allers says, noting that, in Orlando, September is “Magical Dining Month” and that more than 60 restaurants offering three-course dinner fixed price for a wallet friendly price of $ 30.
For a bit of black culture in Orlando, is the legendary hotel, built wells, which was the only place in the region that African-Americans, including people like Ella Fitzgerald, Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson, who get housing in the era of segregation. Just outside of town, and is the historic town of Eatonville, “where a welcome tour shows many historical significance of this place, which was the first municipality in America to be incorporated by black,” said Allers. Eatonville is the hometown of Zora Neale Hurston, a writer’s festival to be held annually and the Hurston Museum presents the work of black artists, each year, beginning with an exhibition season is free to attend and begins each September.
If Florida is too far, “think of a destination that is drivable,” Allers suggests. “Voyager can give your children a fantastic experience and if you can get one or two short stays in, it really helps the school year moves along, and soon it will be time for the winter holidays. ”
In the meantime, if your flight offers you a break without breaking your budget, consider yourself lucky and financially aware, too, while enjoying one last summer cheer.
