It's unprecedented to fly from Boston to Vegas for just $26 one-way. But this is now the case and you can try your luck with $51 roundtrip flights from Boston to Las Vegas, nonstop on JetBlue. Although even cheaper flights are available through April, this price can be found for travel in May, June, August, and early September. For example, I found flights departing Boston BOS on Friday, August 28, returning from Las Vegas LAS on Tuesday, September 1. That sounds like a nice long weekend in Sin City and you don't have to gamble much for this trip. All tickets booked in March — even Basic Blue fares — will have change fees waived for travel through September 8, 2020, should your travel plans change.
One of the most popular flight routes in the USA is now only $35 one-way. Fly nonstop from New York to Miami for $69 roundtrip on American or Delta.

For instance, I found flights departing New York LGA on Saturday morning, July 4, returning from Miami MIA on Monday morning, July 6. Celebrate your Independence with a quick weekend trip to southern Florida! Should anything change in the future, both American and Delta allow you to make changes without any fees as long as you book your flight in March — even for Basic Economy tickets.
Visit friends or family in Texas this summer or fall with this amazing fare on American Airlines. Fly nonstop from Los Angeles to Dallas for $85 roundtrip.

I found availability departing Los Angeles LAX on Friday, July 10, returning from Dallas DFW on Thursday, July 16. You'll have better luck finding the cheapest flights for peak July travel by purchasing two separate one-way flights; flying from LA to Dallas for $43 on American and returning from Dallas to LA for $59 on Delta. By doing this, you can even travel for $101 roundtrip over 4th of July weekend! Both American and Delta have change fee waivers in place for all fares as long as you purchase your ticket in March. So book now and you'll still have the ability to make changes, without fees, if plans change.

Traveling to Puerto Rico does not require a passport for U.S. citizens and it's a great way to get a taste of the Caribbean island life without traveling internationally.
