Have you and your frugal family been dreaming of a fun getaway to Florida? A lot of people think that trips to Florida are out of the question, because when they think of Florida, they instantly think of costly theme parks. But there are so many other fun and relaxing things to experience in Florida. Here’s your guide to plan a cheap Florida vacation that doesn’t suck. Your whole family deserves a trip and it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Guide To Planning a Cheap Florida Vacation
Avoid Big Cities
Orlando and Miami are some of the most popular hotspots when people visit Florida. So naturally, when visiting these tourist cities, you will find that prices can get quite costly. Hotels, restaurants, and especially fun activities will cost you more than you would spend at an average size city. Find a small city to visit and go from there. Do not worry about whether it is close to the beach. Florida is a narrow state, so the beach is just hours away from almost anywhere in the state.

Spend Time at the Beach
Just because you are on vacation does not mean that you have to spend your life savings to have fun. While amusement parks and water parks are fun, so is a day or two at the beach, and it will cost you at most a small parking fee, pending which beach you decide to visit. Grab your sunglasses, sunblock, and a towel, and enjoy Florida’s heat and sunshine as you watch the waves roll in.
