Looking to plan a summer getaway but are strapped for cash? Good news, millennials; you can still take a vacation without going broke. We've listed our five favorite vacation destinations that are both affordable and fun:

1. Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is a penny-pinchers dream destination. With ultra-low hotel rates, discount entertainment coupons and cheap transportation, why not spend a few days on (or off) the Strip? You can find great deals for Vegas on Groupon or many other discount sites. You'll be able to relax by the pool in the Nevada sun knowing you didn't spend a fortune on your time off!

2. Grand Rapids, Michigan.
If you're trying to avoid airfare, Grand Rapids, Michigan is only half a day's drive from Ohio. With over 25 craft breweries and a booming arts scene, Grand Rapids is a great spot with tons of dining, attractions and bar options. Drive just 30 miles west of Grand Rapids and you'll find beautiful beaches, wineries, orchards and berry farms.

3. Williamsburg, Virginia.
Vacation back in time to colonial Virginia with a summer trip to Williamsburg. This is a "revolutionary" getaway with endless attractions such as Busch Gardens, living history museums, and Alliance Tallship cruises. You can enjoy locally made food and craft beverages while experiencing a Jamestown settlement and Yorktown battlefield. Combine history and fun all-in-one!

4. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
This is definitely a beach vacation that won't break the bank. This tourist attraction features a beautiful beach, golf courses and fun nightlife options. If an affordable beach getaway is what you're looking for, Myrtle Beach is a great destination you can both drive and fly to.

Cancun, Mexico.
Want to go international? Look no further than Cancun, Mexico. This area tends to slow down after spring breakers head back to college, so summer is the perfect time to visit. With its all-inclusive resorts, eco-friendly lodges, natural attractions and endless dining options, you'll definitely get your money's worth vacationing here.
