Skyscanner's 'Tour of the World' - From Your Own Back Yard

OAKTON, VA, July 19, 2010 - Due to recent reports of the slow economic recovery, many Americans may opt to stay closer to home. However "staycations" don't mean holidaymakers have to give up the chance to discover new cultures and other countries - highlights the best "overseas" destinations to visit without leaving America.


If you want to experience views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, yet can't find any cheap flights to Europe, then a vacation in Paris is not the only option. Head to the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino in Nevada and not only can you view a 541ft replica of the tower, but also a two-thirds sized Arc de Triomphe and a copy of La Fontaine des Mers. Bon Voyage!


If looking for a picturesque German village, then visit Leavenworth in the Cascade Mountains. Without leaving the US, you can experience a German village which looks as though it jumped right out of a Brother's Grimm fairy tale. For a romantic getaway, stay at the Chalet on the River and experience old world charm without needing your passport.


"Lang may yer lum reek!"After the famous Battle of Culloden in 1745, clearance of the Scottish highlands and the subsequent lure of land and tax exemption led many Scots to seek a new home in the hills of North Carolina. Today, visitors can enjoy one of America's largest, highland celebrations: immersing themselves in traditional Scottish dance, piping, athletics, food, music and more.


Site of many Hollywood blockbuster movies, Little Italy offers a rewarding experience and serves as a viable alternative for vacationers who are accustomed to scouring the internet for hours, looking for cheap flights to Italy. Enjoy unparalleled Italian food or a glass of Chianti at a massive choice of Italian restaurants on offer. Strolling through the narrow cobbled streets of Little Italy is as enjoyable as strolling through a piazza in Rome.

The Grand, World Tour (in a day!)

Begin your world tour at Disney's Epcot Center World Showcase by entering through the international gateway, representing 11 different countries including: Mexico, Canada, Morocco, Norway, Japan, France, Germany, China and Italy. Shops in the pavilion are staffed by citizens of represented countries as part of the Cultural Representative Program enabling a truly authentic experience. Visitors can grab a ride on a gondola at the Italian pavilion, watch belly dancing performances at the Morocco Pavilion and enjoy local delicacies from around the globe during Disney's International Food and Wine Festival.

Travel Tip: to save money, search for airfare deals before or after the peak summer season and stay "in resort", and "on budget", by camping at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.
