If you planned or are planning a cheap vacation, how much did you spend and where did you go?

We went to Walt Disney World last year and it was over $5000.oo but we also paid for my grandmother to go with us, and we split meals so the bills were easier to calculate, just halfing them...


I'm looking into vacayions, and when I look on Expedia or any other website, they list 'cheap' as $1,000.oo EACH... Umm, how is that cheap???

Does our weekend trips to WDW count? LoL if not it will be our upcoming trip to DC. We figure it will end up costing around $3,000

We are looking at a white water rafting trip in October. We will be camping on the river. It comes to pretty cheap for the 6 days. It comes to about $800 for the three of us.

We took a 3 day 2 night get away in Lake Geneva, to a hotel with a water park. It was $109 a night. We spent $320 total for the 4 of us, including food.

2 weeks ago we had a stay cation. DH was off, and we did a day at the zoo, a day in Chicago, and a day at 6 Flags. No hotel required. We spent a few hundred that week.

$400ish was our cheapest.

We drove from the Cleveland area to Chicago. We stayed 2 nights in a hotel outside of the city then took the train in. We went for the sole purpose of seeing a Cubs game lol.

We've only done trips to the beach and a day trip to Sea World. That was awesome. I got an unlimited food band (just me) and we ate off of it all day. There were 2adults and DD had just turned 4 and it was def less than $1000. I think it was a couple hundred. It was labor day, so they were open late and had a firework show.

We're planning on driving to a large aquarium in Florida this week. That's $52 admission for the 4 of us (DD#2 is free), $18 for DD#1 to feed the penguins, and $90 for a cheap hotel to go to the beach the next day. Then it's just the cost of food and gas.
