Feeling like you just don’t have the cash to take the kids to Disney World or on a 7 night cruise this year? Try day trips!
Gas is $3.50 and dropping. We have been conditioned to see that as cheap! Take the kids on pre-planned daily excursions. You can take one day trip a week or take one whole week and go to a new place each day.
If you are within driving distance to a beach, kids love the beach. You can also try a computer search and see what pops up in your area. You may have to drive an hour or two but try to find something you have not done before.
If you live near a major city, visit the Little Italy area or Chinatown. Immerse your family in another culture for a day. Visit local museums in your area. Many have kids’ science centers where they will have hands on fun and possibly learn something.
Even going to the movies on a hot afternoon can be a fun time for the kids.
It will be memorable for your family and it won’t break the bank! Go plan it now, just Google your hometown and see what fun places pop up in the search!

- Welcome! I am Jane-Ellen (JE) I'm a travel agent and I am happy to share with you my love of travel. I am not a journalist, I simply enjoy traveling. My favorite travel destinations are Walt Disney World, Cruises and anywhere on our Harley. My husband, Steve and I are out on our Harley when time, work and weather permit. We try to take weekend trips whenever possible.
Walt Disney World has been a favorite spot to vacation since our first trip in 1983. We have had over 30 weeklong vacations and now living in Florida we visit monthly, although recently I find myself there weekly. Hey I am doing research!
Cruising is another passion. We have been on many cruises, predominately in the Caribbean. A seven day cruise is the best way to really unwind and relax; but if a three or four day cruise crosses our path, we set sail. I am an Accredited Cruise Councilor, and a Certified Travel Councilor. I have the highest level of education from all major cruise lines.
Many clients have asked for insider tips for Disney World and cruising. That is my goal to offer insider information on Disney, Cruises and biking.
