The summer months when school is out and the weather is sunny and warm are a great time to escape from your normal routine and create some new memories together as family, but this doesn’t mean you have to break the bank.

Staycation – there may be some fun local spots you haven’t visited. Now might be a great time to discover some new places in your own backyard!

Road trip – by using your own car, you can save a lot of money on airline tickets and avoid the crowds and lines. You can also pick the scenic route while you drive to your destination.

Camping – if you already have your own camping gear, this low-cost trip can be a great way for you to connect with nature and your family. Your costs might include a campground fee and then the food you want to cook over your campfire.

Travel agent deals – if you want to visit a location a little further from home, don’t forget to look for deals on the internet and through travel agents. You might be able to save a lot by working with someone who can offer you a discount for your bucket list location.

No matter what you decide to do this summer, enjoy the time with your family and don’t forget to unplug!
