Cheap Family Vacations can be the best family vacations!
It is easy to build long lasting memories and have a really fun, enjoyable and relaxing family vacation by following these easy travel tips:
Cheap Family Vacation Tip #1 - Take a Break
Don't be in a hurry!
Take plenty of down time.
If you are driving, and see a park, stop! Let the kids get out and take a breather from the traveling.
Cheap Vacations Tip #2 - Plan Ahead
Keep the kids from getting bored by bringing along some books, games that are easy to travel with and movies.
Family Vacation Tip #3 - Pack Smart
Only pack what you need!
Making a packing list and stick to it. You can always buy something on the road if it become necessary.
Cheap Vacation Tip #4 - Spend Time Together
The best part of your cheap family trip is spending time together. This actually makes the trip priceless!
Even if an attraction is "something you can do at home", sometimes you never have time to do that thing at home...and so a vacation is the perfect time.
For example, the only time we play minigolf is on vacation. Just no time to do it when we are not traveling!
Cheap Family Vacation Tip #5 - Great Photo Ops
Take advantage of great photo opportunities whenever you see anything.
With digital cameras, film is cheap (free!)
Cheap Vacations Tip #6 - Keep in Touch
Honestly, I think that sending postcards is a dying art.
But it shouldn't be!
It is fun to pick out postcards, write a message, and send it off.
Postcards are inexpensive too. Buy stamps before you leave town so you don't have to hunt for a post office. Then, most hotels will mail the cards for you by handing them to the postman.
And think of the joy your postcard will give whoever receives it!
Family Cheap Vacations Tip #7 - Take part in what is unique
Finding a great attraction that "sums up" a vacation travel destination doesn't have to be expensive...
Panning for gems or gold in the mountains...
Having BBQ in Memphis...
Seeing the sea lions at the Pier in San Francisco...
Sometimes the best attractions are free or almost free.
