Spring Break is around the corner (read: next week here in GVL). If an expensive cruise or pricey resort isn’t in your family’s budget this year, here are four ways to spend Spring Break the wallet-friendly way:

  1. Enjoy a staycation — Head to a museum, volunteer at local animal shelters or food banks, or check out a nearby state or national park.
  2. Go camping…in your backyard — A fire pit, marshmallows, and ghost stories. Count us in.
  3. Choose a weekly theme — Instead of traveling to another country, celebrate that country by making it your theme for the week.
  4. Prioritize your savings — If your goal is to travel this summer (or for Spring Break next year), putting away money now can help see you + your family vacationing beach-side or hiking through national parks sooner.
