Are you planning a family vacation and can’t quite decide if it will be Cancun, Hawaii, or Europe? Why not travel green by visiting places closer to home. Chances are there are many attractions near you that you haven’t discovered yet. Just go to your local information centre or travel websites to see all of the things you could do locally, you might be pleasantly surprised. You can also visit a nearby hotel and look through the pamphlets for vacation ideas. With the money you save on plane tickets or gas, you’ll have more spending power for your local family excursion. If you insist on flying, travel light. The more you pack the more fuel the plane has to use. Plus, you will want the extra room in your suitcase for all of the exotic stuff you will be bringing home.
