What are some inexpensive summer vacation ideas for families on a budget?
We love to take vacations but try to work within a budget. Any ideas?
Staycation! A few times a year we do this. We get a hotel within an hour of the house and stay for a couple nights. You try to plan activities in that city before we go. The children are just happy to be in a hotel!
I love to go to the beach, even if it's just for the day. If you don't live near the ocean, how about a lake or river. Kids love to swim, and it's generally a free activity.
We love to go through factory tours and children's museums. The factories are some of their best memories. My son's even requested to go on a tour through the Ford Rouge plant in their teen years! It is often free and it is always interesting!
Visit a family member and explore their city. You save tons on food and lodging and get to spend time with family.
