Family Vacation On The Horizon? Tips On Making It Affordable

Let’s face it, a family vacation can be expensive. One of the first things you need to do is map out your destination and determine your budget. If your destination is a little far, your transportation costs can be cut by finding a location closer to home. The summer travel season is quickly approaching and now is the time to make your plans.

Set a Budget

Triposo is a great app to install. It is super user friendly. Users are allowed to key in their area and set a budget as to how much money they have to spend.


By setting your budget before you and your family head out the door, you will all have a much more enjoyable vacation.

Cook Some Of Your Own Meals

Many properties offer kitchenettes which provide microwaves, refrigerators, and cook tops. This can help you save money, as you will not have to eat out every single meal. Once you check into your resort, ask at the front desk where the nearest grocery store is. The folks that work the front desk know the area and can give you great recommendations.

Here at Tuckaway Shores Oceanfront Resort our guests can use our Big Green Egg while staying with us.


Again, making your family vacation affordable and offering tasty food that your family will love! It’s a great idea to plan for at least one local meal out and about while on vacation. Everyone loves to try out the local flavors while on vacation and deserves one night off from cooking.

Get Outdoors

Running around outdoors does not cost anything! Beach front property offers the perfect reason to put away the electronics and break out a frisbee or two. Property that sits in the mountains offers abundant hiking trails. Walking, jogging, bicycle riding, and even fishing are inexpensive ways to have an affordable family vacation.



If you do opt to go fishing, make sure you know the rules in regards to licensing.

Set your budget, cook some of your own meals, and get ready to experience the great outdoors! If you do these three things, you and your family can have an affordable family vacation. Summer vacation season is just around the corner and now is the time to determine your destination. Your kids will not remember how much your vacation cost. What they will remember is the time that you took to spend with them, and that is what matters the most.
