When it comes to ideas for vacations, I never have a problem coming up with where to go because I have a giant list of places I want to see that keeps getting longer.
How does it keep getting longer, you may wonder. Well, we use a vacation exchange site through our timeshare, which allows us to stay in a ton of places around the world for a very small amount of money (typically 1/3 of what you'd pay for a weekly stay). We have kids so if we can't afford flights somewhere...
... sometimes we'll just pick a resort within driving distance and stay there for a week, just to get away. That's fun for any kid. So if you're able to join a vacation exchange club -
- do it! I also love using TripAdvisor for new vacation ideas. Because the content is mostly user-generated, you can get a good handle on what will meet your needs as a family.
