This is definitely going to have to be a frugal vacation. Its actually not really a vacation, my husband is having surgery, but I figured since we were having to travel and we would be near the beach we could make it into a vacation.
We have to be in Jacksonville, FL on a Monday in August for my husbands surgery (its a simple out patient procedure) The mini vaca will have to happen before this since he won't be able to see or do anything for a few days after this.
We would leave on Friday and make it the whole weekend, but instead we have to travel in the opposite direction for my g-grandma's 97th birthday party that is on saturday. My grandma is planning it for lunch so at least we can leave early if we want to.
So I'm trying to decide should we go on Saturday night so we can rest and spend all day Sunday enjoying the beach and seafood, or get up early sunday morning and go straight there (4 hr drive) that we we could avoid paying an extra night in the hotel.
We just found out the dates for this so I haven't saved up for it like I should have. Now I only have from now until then to save what we need. How can we make the most of this mini vacation?
