Now, there are a lot of reasons to be dissatisfied with our fair city; lack of public transportation, the now former Mayor who shall remain nameless, that colossal waste of space we call the Pyramid, the loss of the Mid-South Fair – not that anyone ever went and others, but there is one thing we have that is underutilized – travel. Memphis is a great place to live and travel from. The cost of living in Memphis is low enough for a middle class family to have a great vacation every year without going into bankruptcy.
Amenities, Price and Location. Those are the three most important considerations as you plan your trip to Mexico and book your hotel. And if you can plan far ahead, it just makes things that much easier. So where do you start?
Golf aficionados will love a trip to the Kapalua Villages at the north point of Maui. Surrounded by stunning ocean views you can play on two world class golf courses in the most exotic location you’ve ever played. You will find that your game will vastly improve when your views are taken up by the Majestic Ocean and white sandy beaches. Golfers say that your best swings will come when you’re relaxed and you won’t be more relaxed than on your Maui vacation. Of course there is plenty to do if relaxation is not your thing. This hotel is also home to eight dual zip lines that vary in height and length. What a more perfect way to get a thrill and to see the Island than zipping over the top of it?
Williamsburg, Virginia – Williamsburg is a secret treasure of the east coast that combines history with roller coasters! Busch Gardens and Water Country USA are two theme parks just outside the city. The city itself has actors and volunteers portraying people from over 200 years ago, bringing you back to an age right before the American Revolution.
Another method that you might consider for saving money on vacation excursions is to look for all inclusive packages. If you combine flights, lodging and a side trip or two, you may gain savings. Combining the elements of a Anvil Cottage and giving a lower cost will make the entire vacation more affordable.
Pack snacks. You can bring in snacks and sandwiches. For example I packed granola bars, cheese crackers, pretzels and raisins, PB&J, applesauce cups and more for the children. They also came in handy when we wanted a bite, but not a whole meal. You can even do this and not purchase the meal deal, but use the meal deal at least one day. Trust me packing the foods every night after a busy day at the park can get old, so take a break and enjoy your vacation too.
