It's almost summer vacation time, let's talk frugal vacations!

After the wedding, dh & I would like to take a few days.

I know we've talked about this before, but I thought it would be fun to start brainstorming.

What do you do to cut costs on vacations?

We'll take an ice chest and eat the evening meal out of it. Lunch is usually cheaper than dinner at restaurants, so when we eat out, it will be lunch.

I'm pretty picky about hotels and wonder if a B&B would be cheaper or just nicer, or are they nicer? I see a lot with pets and I don't know how dh's allergies will be, especially being unused to the pollen in the area.

Then, and hardest for us, is finding something to do when we get somewhere. We like to take tours, by bus, jeep, or boat. It's just fun to have someone point out the sights. Other than that, we never know what to do. If we go to Memphis we'll probably go see Graceland. Not that either of us are big Elvis fans, but how can you go to Memphis and not see Graceland?

The road to success is always under construction.
