Weekend getaways are a great way to keep your kids’ sense of wonder alive, even when you don’t have a lot of time on your hands. Another great thing about them is that they won’t cost you a fortune, and our brief guide will help you have a memorable family weekend getaway without breaking the bank.
The closer you stay to home, the less money you’ll end up spending. Exploring local attractions is a great way to save money on gas, so try to pick destinations that you can reach in up to three hours.
Accommodation will be one of the biggest expenses of your trip, and you should pick it wisely. Since we’re embarking on a weekend getaway, it’s best to hit the road first thing on Saturday and only pay for accommodation for one night. Camping and staying with your friends and family can also save you a fortune.
When exploring attractions at your destination, check if any of them offer family deals and free entrance or discounts for children. This piece of information will help you decide which attractions are worth exploring and fit into your budget.
Pack Some Food
Convenience store and gas station snacks are usually overpriced and you should avoid buying them at all costs. Convince your kids to have a proper meal at home, and pack your own snacks to avoid buying them on the road.
