Although the kids are going back to school and the weather is slowly getting colder, there’s still a little time to get one more family vacation in. If you do it right, you can fit one last summer jam into everyone’s schedules to send the warm days of summer away with a smile. Whether you plan to head to the beach or mountains, here are a few pointers if you want to take advantage of the final days of summer.
Take Advantage of Long Weekends
When you have a free day off from work for something like Labor Day, be sure to take advantage of it. Heading into the bigger holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc., it can be harder to have time off from work. Consider using some of your vacation days together with a long weekend to make the absolute most of your time. If your significant other has a different work schedule you may need to plan more carefully, but it should be possible.
Find End of Summer Deals
Regardless if it is for airfare, hotels, clothes, or random vacation supplies, try to look for end of summer sales and deals to save your bank account a little stress. Searching for an hour or two online could help you save big in the end. Sites like Expedia or Hotels.com run different deas daily, so be sure to check with diligence in order to get your moneies worth. They will usually offer a price match option as well, so if you make a reservation at one price and see it for a lower price later, you can opt for the lower of the two prices. Checking travel sites on the regular will really help save you some money as long as you put the time into searching.
Get Everything You Need Organized and Ready
Before you leave, get any last minute things you may need to make your vacation problem free. This time of year the sun is still very strong so be extra careful with skin care for the whole family.

With a little planning and duediligence, that final family vacation of the summer is not impossible! Grab life by the horns and get out there; your entire family will be grateful.
