Overview

The family vacation has been portrayed in many ways. From National Lampoon’s
“Vacation” showing the trials and tribulations of the Griswold family trying to get to
“Wally World” to “The Great Outdoors” with John Candy and his family renting out a
cabin in the woods only to encounter a meddling bear. Family vacations in the media
seem to be one thing going wrong after another.

But in real life, the family vacation is a time to bond together as a family unit and enjoy
newfound times of closeness while exploring new adventures and locales. The
memories you can make on these vacations will stay with you for years and give your
children special moments they’ll treasure forever.

You can choose to drive cross country and see the quirky roadside attractions such as the
largest ball of yarn or the corn museum. Some don’t look at this as a true vacation.
After all, being stuck in a car for the majority of the trip can breed some real family
strife!

You could also book a family cruise or fly to Mexico to spend time at a resort, but this
can get pricey, and with all the activities they have for children, some parents fear the
bonding they were looking forward to won’t happen.

For the family on a budget, the notion of a memorable and fun-filled vacation may seem
out of reach. That’s simply not true, however. There are many, many ways you can
have a terrific family vacation while on a budget. You don’t have to sacrifice fun
because of lack of money. There are all kinds of vacations that can be had within almost
every budget.

While traveling is good for the economy and for your soul, it can be hard on your wallet.
In fact, AAA estimates that a family of four should budget at least $244 per day for
meals, lodging and automobile travel costs. And that figure doesn’t include the staple of
family vacations—entertainment. As usual, the best way to keep the costs down is to
plan ahead and make informed decisions.

But how do you start? You start with family input, a survey of your resources, and a
well-thought out plan. We’ll not only show you how to do that easily, but we’ll also
give you all kinds of ideas for family vacations and ways that you can make them







affordable and fun!
