Whether you are looking for a Spring Break destination or are looking to travel for some other reason, there are many common holiday destinations. If you want to avoid the typical tourist crowds, Forbes offers a list of interesting new holidays destinations in “5 Remarkably Affordable Travel Destinations for 2013.”

Lisbon, Portugal offers beautifully scenic views of the ocean, set against a background of less well-known European history and architecture. Its balmy climate welcomes those looking for outdoor activities, and there are a number of watersports available as well. History and architecture buffs will enjoy exploring the region’s castles and museums, and those wanting to see more of Europe can easily fit trips to Spain into their schedule.

United States residents looking for a destination closer to home will want to consider Quebec, where they can get a taste of French culture with little of the travel expenses involved. Visitors during the winter will have the pleasure of experiencing Quebec’s winter festivals, which include ice sculptures and sleigh rides.

Mexico is a common holiday destination, but there are many cities within the country that remain to be discovered by tourists. Riviera Nayarit is one such city, which is on the coast and offers beaches and a number of attractions to lure tourists. Visitors who venture out on the water may even be able to spy some whales that are normally in the area. Like a number of cities that have yet to be discovered, these cities will enchant those who take the time to visit.
