    Mmmm, not knowing where you live in CA makes in a bit harder. There are some beautiful State parks you could go to and camp in. If you don’t live near SF you could go there and ride Bart around and get on and off a lot of different places from SF all the way out to Sacromento. Drive to Vegas. Or Go to Northern CA drive along the coastal hwy and get some smoked, schucked, BBQ’ed Oysters along the way and see the Red Woods…

    Unfortunately if you are looking for “Cheap Travel” California isn’t the place to travel to. There economy is very different there than other states. Higher income, higher prices. Still though even with higher income it is STILL very expensive. I would suggest certain parts of Florida, say Orlando for something more cost friendly that California will be.

    The thing with many parts of California is the hotels are so expensive and say $150.00 a night even really doesn’t get you a whole lot for example.

    If you go to California, I would suggest flying into LAX and then renting a car, drive to Anaheim area and stay off site and do the whole Disney experience. You could drive down to San Diego as well, but that area tends to price more depending on accommodation choices.

    I would recommend contacting a local travel agent. They can help you in finding a property that is not only a good/clean place to stay, but work with your budget as best as they can. Many agents will charge a nominal service fee at time of booking as if you find a good agent they do a lot of research and expertise. Please don’t be like some to say they don’t “need” an agent, but yet call and “get expert advice” only to go off and try and find that hotel/flight/car on your own to possibly avoid a small fee. If you are going to do that, please try and then just do the research on your own, just be aware that photos/ratings aren’t always as they seem.

    Some hotels/motels photos are touched up, some the photos don’t do them justice. Just depends. That is where we can come in handy, even though granted we don’t know all we work with various agents that all have there specialties or knowledge about a location so therefore if your agent you are working with doesn’t know the answer they can find out though for you what that answer is! =)

    Have a Great Time!

    Believe it or not, Napa can be done on the cheap. There are a ton of kid’s stores downtown, there are cheap places to eat like Tres Hermanos, or there are fast food places. Or you can pick up food from the store and make a picnic at any park or the Grapecrusher statue. The cheapest hotel I know is about $80 a night. Napa’s very safe. And there’s tons of window browsing, and the weather will be great in May. For your teens, they just opened this place in the Riverside Center which has rockclimbing and bouncy places for littler tykes. People of all ages are loving it. There’s a great pizza place next to it. And the views are incredible. Not everything around here is expensive. I know, I live here and we’re on a budget.
