The start of a new year means we're more than ready for some fresh adventures. To maximize our 2020 travels, affordability will be key, and luckily there are plenty of places to visit and activities to enjoy without having to dig too deep into our wallets. Visiting a more under the radar locale with similar qualities to their pricier counterparts is a solid way to save some bucks without sacrificing on your travel experience. And sometimes a splurge on airfare can land you in a culturally rich destination where you can eat, explore, and sleep like a king or queen, making it totally worth transportation hogging the majority of your trip's budget.

No matter what, there's a trip for every budget. Here are 20 affordable trip ideas for your 2020 bucket list.
