Usually when you're thinking of traveling, you figure out where you want to go and what your budget needs to be to get there
Now you can plan in reverse, online.
Several websites will let you decide how much cash you want to spend and the sites will show you where you can afford to go.
The first site is called geniusflight.com .
Just put in your maximum budget, where you are leaving from and the date.
Within seconds the site shows you on a map where your money will take you.
Google Flights also has its own version.
Enter your departure city, leave the destination blank, scroll to your ideal budget and again, the map fills up with places you can afford for your next vacation.
Go to the explore section on kayak.com and you can pretty much do the same thing.
Type in your departure city, the month you'd like to travel, your budget and voila, San Diego beaches here I come.
Of course if you know where you want to go, you can search that way as well and kayak.com is a great site that searches other travel sites for you.
I also like Yapta.com because the site tracks fares for you and will even send you an email if the cost of your selected flight goes down.
If you've already bought your ticket, some airlines will refund you the difference.
Now you can practically let your computer plan your vacation for you.
