Choosing to vacation in Washington, DC is just an awesome idea whether you are alone, a couple or large family. Vacationing with older children is extremely advantageous just for the history lesson alone.  You can spend days visiting the Smithsonian Institute, and if possible, you should.  Just think of your evening discussions with your children, trying to explain how excited you were viewing Julia Child’s kitchen?

Careful planning ahead is key to a successful vacation, hands down. An example of that is if you plan to visit the White House on tour. You don’t just walk in and jump on a tour, you have to get signed up, and checked out, for obvious reasons. Contact your state Congressman’s office, especially if you are a military Veteran, because you can get a private tour, if not placed on a reserved “self tour”. Either way, you will receive special tickets for your tour. As D.C. can seriously become overwhelming real quick, try to limit what’s on your “bucket list”, so you don’t find yourself rushing around, trying to see everything. There will always be attractions and sights that you will want to plan your return visit for.

Taking the family to Atlantic City this year, but want to stay on some kind of budget?

That’s not always a realistic goal, but we think we can help you do just that with our hot choices for low dollar fun.

Lets start with the most obvious, this summer, hit the beach because there are no associated fees for the beach, unlike many other beaches in the U.S.  And while we are at the beaches, think free concert! That’s right, like July 31st at the Caesars Palace Pier, where popular Country Music star, Blake Shelton performs for free.

A week later on August 3rd, again at the pier at Caesars, the popular group Lady Antebellum also performs for free.

Also, all through the summer on the Atlantic City Boardwalk, you can enjoy “Broadway on the Boardwalk” where some of New York City’s finest Broadway musicals are performed for free.

There’s more to Atlantic City than just the boardwalk, Ferris wheel and a casino or two. Why not take a tour on a historic “Great American Trolley Tour” and see what the Jersey Shores are all about, for only $20. If the rides and fun games are more to your liking, you need to head over to the Steel Pier Amusement park. Sure, it’s going to cost you a few dollars, but if you figure about $20 per person, that’s not so bad is it?

You’re bags are packed and you’re ready to jump on that “freedom bird” for a vacation on Miami Beach. You already know here you will spend most of your daytime, on this fantastic and famous beach where it’s always happening. But where do you go for cocktails, food, shopping and such, where everything isn’t “tourist expensive”? Where do the locals party when they want to step out and not deal with vacationers?

First off you need to know that the best party places in Miami Beach aren’t ones that you throw on a cover-up and walk in the door. Although you may think it was hot on the beach all day, these clubs get hotter after dark. Put on you’re finest and step into the fantasy world of the Miami Beach the locals thrive on.

Ladies, if visiting with your girlfriends or alone, these are some of the best known and popular haunts. Any night of the week, you can check out Spazio or the popular Waxy’s on the River. However, the most popular clubs are Blue Martini located in Kendall especially on Wednesday evenings. That’s when they offer ladies half price on all menu items, all night long! Another favorite is the Taverna Opa located in the Dolphin Mall. Every Thursday night is Latin Ladies Night and you’ll find yourself sipping “on the house” mojitos and tequila shots until 1pm at the bar. For this venue, be very careful, and we suggest arranging transportation home in advance for good reason. Expect to loosen up and salsa the night away here, with an atmosphere of sexy Latin atmosphere on the dance floor and off.
