When we were in Pennsylvania last month, Pete was telling the girls and I about the weekends when his grandparents would take him up to Atlantic City. He said he loved how “alive” the area was, even in the middle of the night! I had been to New Jersey years ago, but never made it to Atlantic City, and after hearing Pete talk about it, I decided we needed to go!
When we got back to the hotel that night, I started to do some research about Atlantic City. I saw that KAYAK included Atlantic City in their 2016 Summer Travel Hacker Guide that is now live on their site! It is featured as one of spots in the “Summer Fridays” list that provides easy long-weekend travel inspiration. These 10 cities are among the most popular weekend destinations for travels based on KAYAK’s user data. KAYAK data scientists and travel experts looked within the site’s one billion annual searches to uncover insights and practical advice to help consumers navigate the busy summer travel season.
Whoa! That is a lot of data that they used!
In addition to providing information including median airfare by month, and when to book for each destination, this year’s Guide also includes tips on what to expect once you get there. This includes average temperature and rainfall. I know that most travelers love being able to see airfare stats to get the best price, but I also use it to see when the slowest time to visit is. We like to visit during the slow seasons this helps us identify those times too.
Another awesome feature that KAYAK has is their Trips Tool.
Think of this like your own personal travel planner and organizer. You can forward all receipts to trips@KAYAK.com, save results from a search, or enter a trip or event by hand in later, so that you will have everything for your trip right at your finger tips. I loved that I could share it with Pete so that he could keep up with my planning, and since he has been there before, he can make suggestions and add to our itinerary.
Not shown on this screenshot of the itinerary that I made, was the time we are putting aside to enjoy and explore the boardwalk. I’ve been hearing about it for years and there is no way I’m missing it. I also will want to carve out some time for a massage and as much yummy Italian food as possible!
Where are you vacationing this summer?

I just used Kayak for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it was AWESOME! I’ve never had an easier experience planning a trip.
I love to travel so I am always looking for a way to find great deals. I need to check out Kayak.
Kayak is my go-to site these days. I find it to be extremely user friendly and I know I am getting the best deal.
Kayak is a great website. I’ve used it a couple of times, and all of the tools make pretty much every aspect of travel super easy.
Ive never seen lower prices than when a fare first comes out for Delta, but other sites, yes. Gotta get that price guarantee!
Thank-you! Any tool for cheaper airfare is more than welcome! I will use this when I book my Los Angeles trip!
wow, that’s just the kind of information you need when planning a trip. Kayak sounds super helpful for staying organized!
I had no idea that you could plan so much with Kayak! What a great way to plan a vacation, we haven’t planned any vacations yet.
I use Kayak all the time; it’s an extremely helpful site. I don’t have any vacation plans this summer. I might head to NYC, otherwise I’m saving my vacation plans for the fall.
That is really neat, I didn’t know that Kayak had so much to offer. Thanks for sharing!
I am a total planner by nature, so being able to easily schedule my itinerary is a dream come true. I can not wait to check this out!
We are going to California and Michigan this summer! I can’t wait to go! I will have to check out Kayak for rates!
Super interesting that the cheapest time to book travel is 10 weeks out. It makes sense though, it is a happy medium between overplanning and possibly risk not being able to go and not planning and being at the mercy of the airlines to get a ticket. Kayak is a great service to help plan trips. It is definitely one of my trusted websites.
We are vacationing in Canada this summer. We’ll have to check out Kayak for our trip!
This is what I like about travel planners, it’s very detailed and it has all the info that you need especially the schedules. I love that it can easily plan an itinerary for you as well, so awesome!
We are home for the summer this summer. Baby due and too much going on to head out but oh boy I’d love to travel and stay some where fun!
I use Kayak quite a bit when planning my travel plans. The site just makes it easier to shop all the other sites in one spot to find the best deal.
My husband and I are going to Boston in July. We can’t wait!
Thanks so much for the great guide! I am really hoping we can have lots of fun this summer!
I never heard of Kayak but I will check it. Thanks for informing. I would love to see different places.
I love travelling but summer just ended in our country. I hope that I can travel next summer.
Kayak sounds like a nice option. I am looking for inexpensive travel and glad that I came across this.
I haven’t traveled in the last year but I hope to be soon. Kayak seems like a great way to get discount pricing options so I will be giving it a go.
Wow, KAYAK seems like a good travel tool.
I like the amount of data you are able to get from it.
As a frequent traveler this was really helpful. I love Kayak! I always use them for flight booking.
We’re getting ready to plan a weekend “grown ups only” getaway. This will help us save money and plan!
This is so awesome! I will be traveling a lot soon, think I need to download it once I’m in the USA again. Thanks for recommending it.
I need to check this out. I have several flights I need to book for the remainder of the year and I would love to save as much as I can on them.
I need to check this out too. My family always books early and sometimes I’m not sure if it’s really such a great deal!
Oh wow thanks a bunch for this information! This is something I’ll have to look into for my family’s vacation next summer!
KAYAK seems like such a neat website. I will have to use it next time I plan my next vacation. I keep wanting to use travel sites but never know which one is best. I will try this one out next.
Kayak seems to be getting more and more popular. I’m going to check them out. We’ve got a few ideas rolling around for summer travel.
I wish that I was able to travel more. I want to try and go to the beach this year. I am not sure if it will happen or not.
This looks like such a great travel tool! I want to be able to go more places…soon.
I had no idea that Kayak had something like this. How helpful!
My husband travels a lot for his business & I never know there is something like KAYAK which will help you plan better & stay organized with your trips. Would surely suggest him to check it out during his next trip.
Kayak is awesome!! I love using them to plan trips, they’re always so great and helpful! Love this post!
Atlantic City! How fun! I hadn’t heard of Kayak prior to reading this post! An app that helps you plan your trip sounds pretty good to me! We don’t have any plans for traveling this year! Maybe next year.
So basically be spontaneous with your trips (2 weeks out anyways) haha! This is a great a guide to have when planning a trip for sure! I love this!
I am not sure where i am going to go this summer yet. I will have to check out Kayak.
I haven’t heard of Kyak. I am going to look into this for sure next time we have a travel need.
That is one super awesome picture up there of the river and bridge! I’ve been hearing Kayak recently and while I haven’t explored much of their services yet, the different organizing tools it gives us makes travelling much more easy.
My sister and her family uses Kayak and I hope to in the future. I’m not good at planning things so I’m hoping they will help plan my vacation this year.
It looks like you had a wonderful trip. I do believe Kayak would be a great way to for planning all your trips and love the benefit of going through them too. Thanks for sharing the information.
Boy, I will sure be checking out Kayak when I go to plan my next trip. Thanks for sharing the great features and ease of use. LOVE those pictures…makes me want to leave today! 🙂
