Summer vacations are so much fun. We had a lot of trouble deciding where to take the kids this year. We looked on the internet using our hughes net connection and found a ton of great ideas. We finally decided on San Antonia, Texas for our trip. It is about a 12 hour drive so we could save by not needing to buy plane tickets.
One spot we wanted to see for sure was Sea World. We looked up their website and the kids got so excited just looking at what they had to do. We were able to find pictures and videos online to help us decide what to do when we arrived. We also were able to set a budget since we could find all pricing online for this part of the trip.
We were not sure what hotel we wanted to stay at when we got to San Antonia. They are all so different and tons of various prices. We spent a lot of time looking at different sites. We were able to see prices and find out what was available the week we would be in town. We finally made a decision based on pictures and price. We found exactly what we were looking for and stayed in our budget.
For the entire trip, I was also able to figure how much we would spend in gasoline. I figured miles to drive and average gas prices. This made it perfect for us to save the money for our upcoming trip. It all worked out great and we had a fabulous time! Using the internet to plan everything helped the trip to be fun and stress free. It was worth it!
