6 Summer Vacations Where the Dollar Is Strong
Thank you, Fed
We’re obsessed with traveling...but a crappy exchange rate is enough to make us stay far, far away. (Sorry, Copenhagen.) Here, six awesome destinations where the dollar is super-strong right now.
Exchange rate: $1 = $1.30 Canadian dollars
What it gets you: A smoked meat sandwich from Montreal's legendary Schwartz’s Deli for just $7.20. (A hot pastrami sandwich at Katz’s in New York will run you $20.)
Exchange rate: $1 = 123.47 Icelandic krónas
What it gets you: A guided day trip around the jaw-droppingly beautiful Golden Circle (think: out-of-this-world geysers, hot springs and waterfalls) for $77 per person.
Exchange rate: $1 = 3,093.49 Colombian pesos
What it gets you: A fantastic three-course meal in the chic garden at Carmen, one of the country’s buzziest and most stylish restaurants, for $25.
Exchange rate: $1 = €88
What it gets you: A daylong, private, guided wine tour around the scenic Douro River Valley for $91.
