Here’s a cool TMOM Find: Free gas to get to Baltimore for your next family vacation.




OK, so it isn’t exactly free gas. It’s more like a gas swap. You buy the gas and drive to Baltimore. In return, Baltimore gives you coupons and discounts worth the amount you spent for the gas to get there.


It’s easy. Simply visit the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association on the Web, click on the “Deal Driver ” tool on the home page, plus in your home ZIP Code, the number of miles per gallon your car gets, what kind of coupons you want (kids, teens or adults) and voila! the computer returns a list of places offering two-for-one admissions, dollars-off coupons for local restaurants and other great Baltimore deals.


While you’re on the site, check out the hotel deals and the list of 50 free things to do in Baltimore. We’ve listed 10 of them right here .


We love it. Give it a try and let us know whether you think the coupons are worth the drive.
