Let's be honest; unless your last name is Musk or Zuckerberg, traveling is EXPENSIVE!

If you have a family of more than two, it can be even more overwhelming.

Have you priced a trip to any Disney resort? From here in Maine, let's say you want to take the kids to Florida or California to see the mouse.

A ticket per person is averaged at $150.

You need airfare, hotel stay, food and beverage - are you renting a car?

For a week's vacation, you are already putting down the cost of a family home for a trip of fun for five! YUCK!

So what do we do this summer? How do we give the family a fun getaway (and much-needed) for the summer?
