SPRING BREAK: Spring travel doesn't have to break the bank. By researching your travel destination, you can save on hotel rooms, food and attractions.

Family Features

Everyone seems to be on a tighter budget these days. Many families are looking for effective ways to trim back or manage costs so they don’t miss out on a much-needed opportunity to get away and relax, recharge and refresh. And the good news for travelers is the cost of many trips is down from 2008 prices.


Here are some tips to help you maximize your spring vacation dollars.


Choose a high value destination. Some cities have seen air fares and hotel rates decline over the last year. These include New York City, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas and many destinations in the Southeast, such as Orlando. Look for destinations with bargain attractions, too. Frommer’s has named Washington D.C. its top destination for 2009 – from the Smithsonian museums to national monuments, almost every major attraction is free.
