If you’re thinking of visiting any National Parks with your family this year, you should consider getting the America the Beautiful Pass. This annual interagency pass gives you access to more than 2,000 recreational areas across the country.
Despite what you’ve been taught or have grown up seeing, you can spend your money on what you value. What you like. What you love.
It’s called values-based budgeting. And we’re going to show you how it works and how you can create a family budget that covers all of your bills, helps you save for the future, and keeps your money going towards the things you value most in life.
Do what you want to do on your vacations. Spend your money however you want when you travel. Don’t let others dictate how you should spend your time and money, especially when it comes to family vacations. For most people, you only get a limited amount of time off from work or school. Use it in whatever way makes you happy.
Nestled along Michigan’s western coast sits Michigan’s Adventure, the largest amusement park in the state. Part of the Cedar Fair family, Michigan’s Adventure is a delight to the thousands of families and guests who pass through its admission gates each season. The park is home to over 60 rides and attractions, including seven roller coasters.
Hidden in Southeastern Indiana, close to the Kentucky border, lies one of the most unique amusement parks in America — Holiday World. Located in Santa Clause, Indiana, the park is a regional gem and favorite among amusement park enthusiasts. While it doesn’t boast some of the bigger roller coasters found at other amusement parks, it holds its own with family-friendly attractions and many unique offerings.

Adoption is more than just an expansion of your family. Or the expenses that accompany it.
Adoptions are messy. Painful. Gut-wrenching. Chaotic. Traumatic.
Maybe it’s not like that for everyone. Our girls were older when we adopted them. We also already had other kids. Maybe it’s not as jolting an experience adopting a newborn. I have no idea and won’t pretend to understand what that’s like.
After adopting our two girls, we soon realized that our future travel plans would need to change. That’s because we no longer fit into a standard hotel room. There are some hotel chains that offer suites that fit up to six people. We still book these types of places when we’re on the road for a night or a weekend sports tournament. However, spending a week or longer cramped into a hotel room isn’t very fun. That’s why we love to book most of our travel through vacation rental sites.
