Flights to These 20 Cities Will Be Ridiculously Cheap Next Month
November is a month in which a lot of you already plan to travel to see family, so any time you take for yourself is gonna have to be somewhat strategic. This is where it can be helpful to know what destinations will be easiest (meaning, cheapest) to get to. Enter Hopper, one of the most useful travel apps around, which tracks data from millions of flights to predict which travel destinations, both foreign and domestic, are going to see the steepest discounts next month. So take those sick days that won’t roll over and enjoy a couple of days of vacation, either as a detour on your way to Thanksgiving or on your way back. Sometimes the best places to travel in November are really just the cheapest ones.
DOMESTICIs November a good time to visit Florida? Actually, yes. Like, extremely yes. The rainy season has just dried up, and the crowds of tourists have evaporated, too, which makes Orlando (down 35%) a great scoop here. From November 2-3 Orlando puts on Fiesta Fall in the Park, a (free!) festival where hundreds of local artisans come out to sell and showcase their work. November 8-10, it’s time for EDC Orlando -- Deadmau5, Above & Beyond, Diplo, dozens of others. Tickets start at $120.
We know not all of you wanna be cold this time of year. Dallas (down 33%) is another excellent bet this November for many reasons, among them the fact that the weather is perfect for all our favorite Dallas-area activities … but also because of the Dallas Taco & Margarita Festival on November 9th. Tickets start at $5.

INTERNATIONALThese discounts usually don’t get over 50%, so if you’ve been thinking of planning a trip to Paris (down 51%) this might very well be the time to do it. In case any of you reading this happen to be young itinerant writers, my ~insider tip~ for you is that you can sleep in the legendary Shakespeare and Company bookstore for free, provided they have room and they like you. You will not regret Paris in autumn.
