How much do you spend on vacation?

Excluding the flights, hotel or house/condo rental and car rental? Lets say 10 day vacation.


ETA:

We are going to Sarasota, FL and will be staying at a condo right across from the beach. I prefer to cook most of my meal to save money and eat better/healthier. But we will be going out.

There isn't much to pay for after you take those out

Is there a kitchen at the rental or no? A lot more if we eat out every meal (which I actually don't enjoy).

It depends on where we are going... We've gone on (what I consider) expensive vacations, and we've also gotten some good deals, or went places that weren't as pricey. Not including airfare on our last vacation around $7k.

It depends on where we are going.

We frequent the Outer Banks and Martha's Vineyard. It doesn't cost that much (without the flight/gas or the rental) because we mostly do the beach.  We'll do the boardwalk in OBX sometimes.

Disney was more expensive for obvious reasons.  We're going to Hawaii in the fall so that will be more expensive since there is more to do.  I'd never do a camping trip for ten days but that wouldn't be too much.

Just depends on where I'm going. Excluding transportation and hotels there isn't much left.

I don't take vacations. Maybe a weekend camping, but I've never been on a plane or stayed in a "vacation" type place.

All depends on where you are going and the time of year. Just figure out about when and see what prices will be. That's what we have done when we think about it.

It would depend on where you went and whether or not the accommodations had a kitchen. We spent a week in Daytona. Excluding everything you named $200 on gas to travel to and from and about $150 or so on food for the week. We collected sand and seashells and of course pictures as our soveniors. That's for 2 adults, 2 kids.

EXCLUDING all of that? Probably $2500. It really varies on where we go.
