Money Saving Tips

Many people think that they can never go on vacation again after having kids or paying back student loans. They think it's just too expensive. Factoring in the cost of plane tickets, hotel rooms, attractions, and food, it's easy for costs to quickly add up. But that all depends on where you decide to go, and how you get there. Read on for some affordable vacation ideas for the thrifty family.


You may be looking at a map and feeling overwhelmed at all the places you can go. But if saving money is your thing, we save you time by offering the following suggestions:


Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC

Not only is this resort within reasonable distance from the beach and promenade, but there is also an indoor park, arts and crafts, and magic shows - just in case you happen to arrive during weather that isn't exactly beach-friendly. The resort also has large rooms for families.


Ka'anapali Beach Hotel in Lahaina, HI

You would think that a beach hotel in Hawaii would cost a small fortune, but that's not true. Ka'anapali is a budget-friendly resort that's comparable to other large resorts nearby, complete with beautiful scenery, acres of soft sand, and a whale-shaped swimming pool. Best of all, children under the age of 17 can stay on-site for free if they share a room with their parents. The hotel offers free children's programs if you are 12 or under, including hula lessons and making their own leis. The kids will have perfect souvenirs that won't cost a fortune.


Comfort Suites Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas

Could a popular destination for honeymooners really be an affordable vacation? Yes! Comfort Suites is the best option for thrifty families, with gorgeous island views, free Wi-Fi, continental breakfast, and a swim-up bar at the pool. Best of all, it's a stone's throw away from Atlantis Resort, which includes a water park. There, kids will have access to their own clubs, while the adults can check out the spa or casino. In short, you can have a blast at the more expensive resort while spending your nights at the much more affordable Comfort Suites hotel.


Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort in Orlando, FL

Thrifty families can enjoy all the perks that come with a luxury resort at an affordable price.
