Summer travel season is about to kick off and with it comes deals aplenty from hotels and resorts trying to fill rooms.
The Breakers Palm Beach has announced a summer travel deal with rates up to 45 percent off.
This means you can stay at the famed luxury resort this summer from $289 per night Sunday - Thursdays and $369 per night on Fridays and Saturdays.
The five diamond oceanfront resort also offers a few freebies to sweeten the deal. Complimentary continental breakfast, kids' meals, a kids' camp (half and full-day sessions) and unlimited tennis (10 courts) and fitness classes.
Reduced golf fees are also offered. The 36 holes include the Ocean Course and The Breakers Rees Jones Course. The resort sits on a half-mile of private beach and has five pools.
The summer deal is available June 1 - Sept. 30, 2012. After that, rates start to climb as temperatures fall around the nation.
Traveling in the off season has its perks: Fewer crowds and often, significantly reduced rates. But it also has its downsides, and in this case, it's the heat.
According to weather.com, the average high / low temperatures in Palm Beach are June 89/74; July 90/76; August 90/76 and September 88/75.
Hey, better to be hot in Palm Beach than sweaty in a city, right?
