My mom always says that she’s glad I got her “travel bug.” While it’s true that I love to see and experience new things, I don’t often get a chance to do that. Money and time are big factors. We recently had some friends from Australia come to stay with us, and sad to say, we may never be able to repay the favor as airplane tickets are very expensive. Last time I checked, it was several thousand to get tickets. Then again, so it would be for Europe…sadly, my travel bug may have to content itself to the continental United States.
That said, my husband and I are discussing our vacations for this year. We have a pretty tight budget, and as such we typically do beach and/or camping trips. It looks like my husband is wanting to do something a bit more exciting, shake it up a bit this year. Originally he wanted to do a week long getaway to his hometown in Texas. I have never been, and he really wants to show it to me and the girls. Unless that comes through (again, time and money) we will have to stay closer to home. We have kind of restricted ourselves to the beach and campgrounds for so long that I honestly don’t know where to start.
So, I thought I would reach out and ask you fellow mamas for help! Where are some family friendly, affordable spots to go visit?
