Still time for a late summer CHEAP flight!!!
I was looking up different options out of Detroit late summer for places to fly and I found Detroit – Atlantic City for as low as $87 or $104 on Spirit for a few days late August (26/27 – 30/31)
Yes I have been going on about Atlantic City and Spirit Air for that matter, but this is amazing!!!
You don’t need to go to Atlantic City if that’s not your thing. I found another Boardwalk City called Wildwood NJ that it TOTALLY kid friendly. Just check out this link – Wildwood NJ attraction. Now, I have never been, but this seems like a really cool place for families. The link will show you all different options for “PLAY, EAT, STAY, PLAN and EXPLORE” This place is 90 minutes from Atlantic City Airport so you would need to rent a car for a few days. But just to get to Atlantic City and back from the Airport is $65 in cab fare anyway – so renting a car isn’t much more.
This is another write-up of the place – very impressive!
It’s actually rated higher than Coney Island and the Navy Pier! Seriously – check out this place!
Anyway – $100 to fly there is a great way to end your summer.
Trip Advisor lists 77 hotels and if you use their site you get a discount on Morey’s Piers with “Play and Stay” passes. You need to stay at a Morey hotel, but you might as well get some discounts while there.
This little city is cute as there looks to be no high rise hotels, but 2-3 story walk-ups instead. (probably elevators) all with their own pools and close to all the action.
As I am researching this on the go I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this place! It is really family friendly.
Don’t bet on a cheap hotel price though as the days I mention start at $150 CDN a night for a decent place. Skylark for example is $147 a night and is ranked 22 out of 77 for their hotels.
Most of the better ones are around $200+.
I was checking to see if there were any hotels through Starwood/Holiday INN/Best Western that we could use our points for – but no luck – these seems like all small, independent hotels.
So…cheap flight…but you will spend $ when there! Especially if you want to have all that fun at Morey’s Pier.
You can always just go to Atlantic City – I did.
