Day trips make a great holiday for less, you do not need to stay overnight in a hotel to have a holiday! Our family of 5 children found the least expensive way to travel with such a large group is to take day trips within a few hours' drive from home. That way, you save on the cost of overnight lodging. A little research between friends and co-workers about close-to-home entertainment (e.g. a couple of hours' drive away) can uncover some great ideas, such as horse riding. Many horse owners give lessons but do not advertise; they use word of mouth to get their business. A day of horse riding lessons for a group of children who take a picnic lunch packed at home will cost much less than just one overnight stay in any hotel or inn. We all deserve a to have break so enjoy your quality of life

We used to do this all the time, in the summer we sometimes did it every weekend. I think I mentioned it in another discussion but we packed picnic lunches and the kids would pick a spot on the map and we would head in that direction but just stop were ever we felt like. We had some great times and always took back roads. We called them "road trips".

Well I have to agree with you there, I went to see my Friend today for the Afternoon and it was nice to get out again. I enjoyed the Afternoon and it was something different.
