How to Make the Best Family Vacation Deal Better
Some ways to save more money on a family vacation:
- Check Groupon and other daily deals sites for the destination where you’re headed. Chances are there will be deals for area restaurants, maybe even tickets to local attractions.
- Check the websites of the attractions you want to visit. Even some of the world’s most renowned museums have times of day or days of the week when entry is free.
- Check the museums, zoos and aquariums near your home to see if a membership there will gain you admission to the museums, zoos and aquariums where you will be visiting. Zoos, museums and aquariums across the country belong to associations that grant reciprocal admissions.
- Do the math. It’s possible it would be cheaper to buy a family membership to the attraction that buying day passes for each family member. This is especially if you have a large family.
- Do the free stuff. Every destination has free, family friendly things to do. To find free things to do where you’re headed, check out our map of the free things to do in the US.
