November is a great time to be thankful for the life you have. You have the ability to take a trip, provided it's reasonably priced. When you take a fun trip and it doesn't cost too much, you can have a great time without spending the entire trip worried about how broke you'll be when you get back. One great way to save some cash is to rent a place in the city you're visiting, which will allow you to live like the locals do. You can have a great time for a reasonable price.
the Sunderbans National Park for a tiger tour and getting a vacation rental will make perfect sense.
the Lincoln Memorial , the Library of Congress and the White House for free. Few places in the world allow you to take in so much grand architecture and history for nothing at all. You can even hit the Smithsonian for a low price. It's almost too good.
Isla de Ometepe , or just lounge around in a hammock on Corn Island . For $30 a day, you can live very well in this place, and step out of your rental to tropical springtime weather conditions.
the Council Overhang . See some amazing waterfalls, like French Canyon . The nearest town is Utica , and the entire area is only about 90 minutes' drive from Chicago.
Devil's Lake State Park . Whether you're into hiking, biking, climbing, swimming, or just about any other activity besides hunting, this scary-sounding but perfectly safe area is great.
Pace Foods . The accompanying rodeo is all for charity, and it's a cheap way to see some genuine southwestern heritage in action.
Arts and Crafts Festival during the later part of November.
El Museo Cultural holds the Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival . People come from all around to bicycle around, buy recycled arts and crafts, and generally live the environmentally friendly and sustainable lifestyle. Interestingly, the rule is that 75 percent of everything sold has to be somehow reused or recycled. There's an art market, a juried exhibition, and even the Trash Fashion Show to check out.
Coral Bay . While you might not get a lot of bragging rights by going to this little-known Mediterranean island, you will have a good, warm time for a reasonable price.
