PhotoWanderlust can strike at any time during the year, but the stress of the holiday season can contribute to one’s yearning to take a vacation. For those interested in getting away from it all after the holidays, GOBankingRates has compiled a list of the most affordable places to travel in January.

Some cities were chosen due to the fact that they’re in their off-peak season. In January, consumers can travel to many cities without having to spend an exorbitant amount of money on airfare and hotel stays.
 
Traveling off-peak means you'll have more money to spend on other things, such as a flight upgrade or a lavish dining experience at your destination. Plus, a city in its off-peak season will be far less crowded than usual.
