Independence Day is less than a month away — definitely not enough time to secure a passport for your dream summer beach vacation. Skip the passport and snag one of these five beach getaways for the Fourth of July, so you can enjoy some time off in Hawaii, Puerto Rico or Florida.

These packages include airfare and a hotel stay. They'll all expire in a few weeks, so make haste to secure the best rates.

1. Puerto Rico: 4-Star Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel - $189+ per night

Beach Getaways for the Fourth of July

Spending your Independence Day in Puerto Rico is almost like spending it in the U.S., since the island is a U.S. territory (which explains why U.S. citizens don't need passports to enter).

The perfect place to stay is at the 4-star Sheraton Old San Juan, a waterfront hotel in the charming Colonial City. It's just a hop, skip and a jump to amazing architecture, museums, restaurants and bars. The beaches aren't far either, but you'll need to go by cab.

Hotel amenities include the on-site Palio restaurant, a rooftop swimming pool and jacuzzi, a fitness center, and free in-room WiFi.

The hotel is just minutes from Kalapaki Beach, and hotel amenities include direct beach access, an on-site spa, an outdoor swimming pool, a golf course, and 6 restaurants.

The price alone ranks this hotel high on our list of beach getaways for the Fourth of July — it's an incredible value.

If you don't mind sneaking away from the South Beach action during the daytime, check out the "Fire on the Fourth" Festival at the North Shore Park Bandshell at 73rd Street and Collins Avenue. This all-day extravaganza starts with food trucks and live music and finishes with a fireworks display.

These Florida Towns Will Remind You of the Caribbean

For most, a beach vacation on a Caribbean island is a no-brainer.
