RV Camping

RV camping is a great option when vacationing.  You get to enjoy the open road, pick your destinations along the way and view a lot more natural beauty offered by mother nature. RV camping vacations were found to cost about 50% less than driving the family car and staying in hotels, 60% less than traveling by bus or train and staying in a hotel or motel, and 70% less than flying to a vacation destination and staying in a hotel.

Stay Local

Look for local attractions in your state, whether it be a state park or beach.  Staying in state can help decrease your gas costs and many times there are local discounts available.

Go with friends

Share a vacation with friends or family.  This will allow you to split the costs of hotel and gas with others.  While providing you a chance to enjoy a vacation with your friends.


Don’t have an RV, well you can still go camping.  Camping has been a long-time favorite vacation for many.  Camp site are very reasonable in cost and have a variety of activities on-site for great family vacations.

Book in off season

If you are one that doesn’t mind vacationing outside of peak vacation time, this can save you a lot of money when booking a hotel.  Consider booking your vacation in the spring or late fall.

Regardless of how you vacation there are many options to making it affordable and enjoyable.
