Staycation on a Budget: Explore Your City

With summer vacations heavily on our minds these days, we are thinking of ways we can trim costs this summer by having a staycation exploring our city this year. Staycations have become very popular in recent years and while some of us may still choose to travel for a vacation, that doesn’t mean that we can’t save while we are exploring different cities.

In case you missed it earlier this week, I shared how we are exploring Katy, Texas. We have family coming in to visit us this summer so we are going to make sure they have the best time ever…on a budget of course! :)

I have teamed up with several bloggers from across the United States to share how you can explore your city or a city you are visiting this summer on a budget. Check out all these great cities you can explore!
