Bill and I have been struggling this whole summer so far trying to decide where to take the kids on vacation this year. With my kids only being 4 and 1, it is a hard call. I do not want to be spending a ton of money on a trip they are not going to remember. That being said and with gas prices being so high, we have decided to stay home and vacation. We live right next to Chicago, and never have any time to enjoy it! Being that Bill hates to drive downtown more than he has to, we are looking at staying maybe one night (maybe even two) with the kids downtown. There is a ton of stuff to do in Chicago like Navy Pier, Children’s Museum, The Museum of Science and Industry, The Aquarium, and The Field Museum. This is just a few things that are just a few blocks away from one another. On top of there being a ton of things to do, there area also a ton of hotels to pick from. I personally think we need one with a pool and continental breakfast if we have the kids with. I love that Hotels Combined has the ability to search on the very parameters that I want. It makes it so easy to find exactly what I want. Our plan is to become a tourist in our very own town and visit all the places we never have time for!
Where are you going on vacation this summer?
