Lodging Help for Family Vacations on a Budget

Have you decided on your family vacation destination, but haven't figured out where to stay?  If your family is like ours, we really prefer to stay somewhere where we have a little more space than a standard hotel room.  We also enjoy having a kitchen.  It just seems to make our vacation a little more relaxing.  If so, Vacation Rentals By Owner may be for you.  This is a site where you can find homes to rent while on your vacation.  I have not personally booked lodging through this site, however I know people who have used it and were happy with their lodging.  This is a good place to start if you know your destination for  your family vacations on a budget, but are unsure where to stay.

Family Vacations on a Budget - St Louis, MO

Have you ever been to St. Louis, MO?  This city is full of things to do for family vacations on a budget.  We love the St. Louis Zoo.  Admission is FREE.  However, there are several things to do within the zoo that have admission costs and you must pay for parking in the zoo lots.  We have been to several other zoos and this one is really good compared to some of those.  Other good places for families are the City Museum, Science Center,and Grant's Farm.  General admission is FREE to the Science Center but there are admission prices for some of the attractions.  Admission is also FREE to Grant's Farm, but there is a parking fee.  These attractions are just a few of the available things to do in St. Louis.  With some attractions not charging admission fees, it is possible to take fun family vacations on a budget to St. Louis.
