COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After a dramatic winter across the country, summer is finally here and while an overwhelming 82% of Americans say they are planning a 2015 summer vacation,1 it’s an optimistic number given that so many employees annually and voluntarily never take their vacations. But this year, with many manageable and solid options for a cost-friendly getaway, Red Roof Inn® says it’s time to not only plan but book and take that much needed vacation whether it’s a road trip or a plane flight away.
“So many travelers are looking forward to summer especially this year when we’ve seen such extreme weather across the country,” notes Andrew Alexander, President, Red Roof®. “Fortunately, this summer is shaping up to be one of the most economically viable with a strong dollar and lower gas prices.”
No matter where travelers are headed, Red Roof® has incentives to stretch dollars. For instance, from June through August consumers can take advantage of Red Roof’s Stay 3, Get 1 promotion. Any RediCard® member who stays 3 separate times this summer (June 1-August 31, 2015) will receive a free night. In addition to being a RediCard® member, the guest must register online in order to take advantage of the promotion. For more info and to register, visit: www.redroof.com/reservations/stay_3_get_1

Red Roof® makes it easy to shape travel on a budget with the following vacation recommendations:
- For Beach Lovers: Miami/Miami Beach, FL From June-August, Red Roof recommends that travelers really let their hair down this summer and book a stay at an enhanced, modern and sleek Red Roof Plus+ property in cities across the U.S. Travelers can plan a trip to Miami, FL. Known for its beaches and endless array of entertaining activities and events, Miami is a destination for families from around the globe, and is also popular with surfers. But Miami’s most conspicuous attraction is, of course, its sparkling beaches which are completely free. Combined with Red Roof’s low nightly rates, Miami and Miami Beach are a great getaway for any budget conscious traveler with several things to do: Eat French and Moroccan Cuisine at Rouge CineCafe; watch a Miami United FC soccer game at Flamingo Park Stadium and enjoy a Day Bed Package at Nikki Beach Restaurant and Bar.
- For Music Fans: Austin, TX The self-styled Live Music Capital of the World, on any given night in the city more than 100 venues are likely to be staging live bands. Visitors can find musical distractions everywhere, from fabled Sixth Street to Red River to East Austin, and consume all-American dishes like grilled cheese, juicy burgers, and perhaps the best BBQ ever. If travelers want to take a night off from the live band scene, they can take adult dance classes at Balance Dance Studios or take a moonlight riverboat cruise on one of Lone Star Riverboat’s eco-friendly electric boats. Visitors can also catch “The Big Bash” at The Hideout Theatre. All-star improvisers play games, create long-form stories, and get laughs from the audience.
- For Thrill Seekers: Orlando, FL Thrilling, exciting amusement rides await those adventurous enough for a day at Universal Studios and Disney World in Orlando. Nevertheless, this Florida city has got much more in store for summer travelers who simply want to get away, and provides alternatives to the two of the city’s most well-known attractions. Visitors can purchase an all-day amusement park visit for two or four at Magical Midway which includes an all-day access to two wooden elevated go-kart tracks, an arcade, and the Space Blast tower. Travelers can also purchase a GO Card Orlando, an all-inclusive attraction pass to visit multiple Orlando attractions for one low price, saving up to 55% on top museums, tours, and activities vs. paying at the gate.
