Should I Stay or Getaway? (Gatlinburg Family Vacations)

USA Today/Gallup poll recently found that more than 6 out of 10 Americans say it’s important that they get away from home this year, even if it means finding ways around high gas prices, airfares and hotel rooms to do it.  The poll indicated that Americans are prepared to pay more to get away this summer.
While some people find themselves too busy or putting off vacations, also known as “Vacation Procrastination,” this helps energy recharge and decreases stress levels of your routine life.  There are new ways to plan for vacations like doing a reverse vacation.  A reverse vacation is trying the opposite strategy of how you would normally plan or spend a vacation.  If you normally do a beach trip, why not try the mountains (ie Smoky Mountains) this year.  If you normally do a Summer vacation, why not try a winter trip to celebrate the holidays or take in the winter sports.
You may think about doing a Stay-cation, but will this help you fully release all the stress that has built up through the Season or allow the family to have the fun they deserve?  We recommend taking a weekend getaway or taking advantage of last minute specials, if you are trying to curb your financial expenses for this year’s vacation.  Furthermore, by choosing accommodations like vacation homes (ie cabin rentals or condos), you can curb “dining out” expenses by cooking your own meals at your vacation rental home.  These are all ideas to enjoy a unique vacation, while still keeping your travel budget-friendly.  Keep in mind the destination, also, when considering the most budget-friendly spots (ie Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg).
