Taking the family on a vacation doesn’t have to be expensive. There are many vacation destinations that are family-friendly in terms of the cost. Here are the top four budget-friendly family vacation destinations.


In the Bahamas, Nassau is the home of the Breezes Resort & Spa. Cable Beach greets guests of the resort, who also have access to the three on-site pools, and a swim-up bar for the grownups. No matter how many services guests use, they are never permitted to tip the staff. In addition, guests of the resort can go rock climbing or sailing during the day and end it with dinner and drinks at the bar and assorted restaurants.


Trinidad and Tobago are the sites of the Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort. Guest rooms have marble baths and balconies that look out on the ocean. Outside of their room, guests can swim in the resort’s three pools. At the on-site kids’ club, young guests can participate in some fun lessons about hawksbill turtles and other water-friendly animals. Guests of all ages can even take the free shuttle resort to the Pigeon Point Beach. While they are learning and exploring, the adults can relax at the coffee shop and piano bar. Guests can also start each morning with breakfast at the complimentary buffet. 


On Virginia’s Chincoteague Island is the Waterside Inn. Every July, visitors to the island can see the yearly Pony Swim, when wild horses take to the waters of the Chincoteague channel. Its fishing and crabbing pier is popular with guests. They also enjoy the heated outdoor pool, which provides a great view of the channel, when the weather permits. There is also a beautiful marina situated on the island.


In West Yellowstone, Montana is the Kelly Inn. The inn offers a free shuttle to and from Yellowstone National Park. Rife with wildlife, guests often spot sheep, bison, elk wolves and bears. However, the main attraction is the geysers, with Old Faithful being the park’s most famous. The inn’s guest rooms can be upgraded to add a pull-out sofa to the room, keeping the whole family comfortable. During their stay, guests can relax in the sauna or hot tub, and cool off at the indoor pool.


These are some of the many budget-friendly vacations that are perfect for a family. Each one has its own unique qualities to make any vacation (e.g. long weekend or a week) fun and relaxing. There is something for everyone!
