Yahoo Travel: Strong Dollar = Europe on Sale: 6 Cool Things You Can Actually Do Now

For too many years, the mighty euro put a cramp in the travel style of Americans visiting Europe. Since 2007, euro-to-dollar exchange rates have generally kept to the $1.30 to $1.50 range, soaring for a while to nearly $1.60. With prices for everything in the eurozone at a premium for Americans, many sought out travel bargains. And splurges? Forget it — they were simply out of the question.

That all changed in 2015. Earlier this year, the euro fell back down to sub-$1.20 earth, and while it’s since toyed with $1.05 (and some still predict euro-to-dollar parity ahead), it’s steadily and wonderfully remained in the $1.10 to $1.15 range.
