  • Were going to Nags Head NC. Its about 8 hours from us. We will go for atleast a week possibly two. I am going to my parents beach house so it wont cost me anything, but if I were renting it then it would cost around $2000 a week (3 story, 5 bedroom 5 bth with a pool a block from the beach). I plan on spending around $1000 while we are there. We have to buy our own groceries for the house. We also go to the Aquarium, light houses, Roanoke Island, and things like that. There are 6 of us going. All toll vacation will cost us around $1300.

  • 7 days in Yosemite. We went a lakeside house in a golf-course community. My husband will white water raft and we'll all go hiking and such. We do this every year. Cost is... a lot.

  • We're driving to the Black Hills - Rapid City, South Dakota. 6 of us. We'll be driving a big van (gas guzzler) but we'll have more than just the 6 of us in it. We're renting a cabin from friends - if it weren't for them giving us a special deal, it would cost us roughly $1,100 for the rental - but that includes a kitchen stocked with everything to cook our own meals, use of the washer & dryer, the cabin is HUGE (we'll be sleeping 7 kids & 8 or more adults, comfortably), we're within short distance of tons of attractions - so we'll save money by not eating out, we're not stuck in a tiny hotel room, etc. Totally worth it IMO. Not sure what we'll spend on gas, but for cabin, fun, etc, we're planning to spend about $1500.

  • We'll drive to California (LA area) from Denver. We tend to stay on the road for 3 weeks, but it depends on what we want to see on the way there and back. This year is all complicated because the kids want to go to camp and the dates coincide with when we usually road trip. I think camp will win out.
