I was just wondering if anyone can give me some good vacation ideas? OK, we live in Latrobe, Pa. We only want to go for a weekend. It will be me, my husband & our 2 kids, (3 & 6). We would like it to be somewhat cheap & close by. Even in the Ohio, West Virginia range would be fine. As long as it is in driving distance. So, if anyone had any experiences with any place fun & inexpensive or has any ideas in general it would be greatly appriciated. We can also go to places offering military discounts. Thankyou.

It's more work (as far as packing) than going to a hotel somewhere, but sleeping in a tent and walking around in the wilderness is WAY more fun than sleeping in a hotel and walking around on a sidewalk/driving in your car. Plus, when your vacation is over, you will have to drive home, and no one likes driving that much. 6-year-olds love camping. The most fun I've ever had in my entire life was white water rafting, (not camping) but my very best (and favorite) child hood memories are from going camping. Campsites are also cheaper than hotels. If you haven't camped before, talk to freinds who have to give you some pointers. Bug spray, and food to cook on the fire are definate musts.

Y'all can go hiking and have cookouts tell, ghost stories around the camp fire, roast those marshmellows. It will be a fun adventure for the kids and definately cost effective, but if that just isn't your cup of tea I've included a website that has vacation spots near you. You can research and find something that fits your needs. Good luck and I hope y'all have fun!
