Once you've selected your dream family vacation destination, it's time to get local. Don't rely solely on national deal Web sites and travel agencies to serve up all of the potential savings; local businesses and attractions are also wise resources for balancing your travel budget. For instance, if you're setting out to a city and aren't sure about all of its offerings, contact its Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) [source: Bailey]. CVBs promote area tourism and can connect you not only to local attractions but also any deals and discounts associated with them. Also, keep your eye out for combination deals among local lodgings and nearby restaurants, amusement parks, museums and outdoor activities. It isn't uncommon for neighboring businesses to team up to provide clustered savings packages centered around hotels, resorts and other lodgings.
