Summer is a great time of year to go on vacation with the family. The problem is-it’s typically the most expensive time of year to go on vacation with the family. Plane fare is up, hotel rates rise, and common destinations are usually packed with people. A more economic alternative is a family road trip or day trip. The Weather Channel looked at the best road trips in each state (Amazing Road Trips in Every State), and in Michigan it was to tour the light houses of the Blue Water Area (the coastline running up the outside of the “thumb”). These lighthouses are beautiful and historical, not to mention that driving along the coast line of Lake Huron offers many opportunities for scenic views! Doing this road trip could be a day trip with the family, or you could extend it over a few days. You could even keep going further north to tour more of what Michigan has to offer.
Staying in Michigan and driving instead of flying are two great ways to save money on your family’s summer vacation. However, Flame wants to remind you that there are ways to save even more while you are away on vacation by having your home ready before you leave:
