TravelFilter: cross country trip in early summer on the cheap, with kids

We're looking to travel from New Mexico to the Baltimore area in early summer, with 4 adults and 2 kids under 5 years old. Airfare looks to be steep enough (and our schedules flexible enough) that we're thinking of road-tripping, so I'm looking for suggestions for vehicle rentals, routes, activity places and distractions along the way. Thanks! [more inside]

Go play in the snow.

Looking for a vacation spot where two families with 4 young children (between 2 and 6) can enjoy some outdoor winter activities. One family lives in Toronto and one family lives in Montreal, so ideally we'd meet somewhere in the middle, or at least on the west side of Ottawa. Where do you recommend we go during the first week of March? [more inside]

Last chance vacation in the West: California or Vegas?

We are moving to the East Coast at the end of the summer. We currently live in the West (Canada). This summer will be our last chance to vacation on this side of the continent. Help me decide whether to pick Las Vegas or somewhere in California in the last week of July. Difficulties: must be super fun for our four-year-old daughter. No Disney (too expensive). [more inside]

Where to go on beach/scuba vacation, renting a house, w/in-laws & kids?

I'm looking for suggestions on where to go on vacation next summer (late July, early Aug 2014) with my in-laws and their kids. The criteria: 1) Within reasonable travel/flight time from Dallas, Texas. There will be four children on this trip, ages 1, 3, 5, and 7. 2) A house/apartment/bungalow to rent for around $2500/week to house 6 adults and the aforementioned four kids. 3) Good SCUBA diving for my father-in-law, brother-in-law, and myself (all with advanced open water). 4) Good beaches for my wife, mother-in-law, brother-in-law's wife, and the kids, preferably within easy access of the lodgings. Thanks very much.

Jersey Shore for Thanksgiving

My family wants to have Thanksgiving in a central location for all of us. We've also talked in the past about renting a big house for all of us to get together in a beach town off season. Any suggestions on towns and/or specific properties or agencies that will result in a good holiday for all of us? [more inside]

How do I put my negative feelings aside about an upcoming vacation?

My husband (A)'s family (parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew) are going on a trip in a couple of weeks. The trip has been planned for months, and he and I had decided long ago that it wasn't going to work for us this year. Yesterday, A. decided he wants to go. There are no hotel rooms available. We will have to stay on the pull out couch in his parent's room. I could use a reality check. Longer explanation inside. [more inside]

Help us get away!

My boyfriend, my father, and I are going to take a trip together in September. My boyfriend and I are in our early 30s, fairly active, and are interested in beaches, ruins, rainforests/jungles, white water rafting, and possibly scuba diving. My dad is in his late 50s, quite overweight (like probably 150-200 lbs overweight), and enjoys luxury hotels, relaxing, and fun stuff that's not TOO physically taxing. I haven't seen him in a few years, but he may be interested in white water rafting and scuba diving, if his weight isn't an issue. We're looking at somewhere in Central America, most likely Belize or the Yucatan, but we're also considering Costa Rica and are open to other suggestions. [more inside]

Hopefully, we'll all make it out alive

We're looking for a fun place approximately equidistant* from Washington, DC and Columbus, OH to spend a long weekend in July or August. Six adults, 3 kids (ages 1 -6). We're hoping to find someplace reasonably priced. Camping is not an option with most of this crowd, and a place with a kitchen would be great. Any suggestions? [more inside]
