10. Instead of springing for expensive airline tickets, just pack your bags and then ask a friend to lose them for you

9. Can’t afford a trip around the world? Try the International House of Pancakes!

8. Find a movie theater showing 3-D travelogues

7. Convince your kids it’s originally pronounced ‘spraycation’ – then get out the garden hose for a week of fun!

6. No need to spring for a pricey ski lodge! Just turn the thermostat to sixty, have a loved one hit you in the knee with a hammer, then drink some cocoa!

5. Eat baked beans before getting into the bathtub and – voila! – you’ve got your own Jacuzzi!

4. Convince your kids that basic training is kind of like summer camp

3. Find a hotel where kids stay free, then dress everybody like 10-year-olds

2. Why not try a Mitt-cation? Have someone strap you to the roof of their car

1. Hang out with the Tanning Mom and you’ll always feel like you’re at the beach!

  1. Hahaha! A very witty response to what may well turn out to be how people decide to spend their vacation in the near future. With the economy being as it is right now I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if people chose alternative methods of fun on their free days.
    Made ma laugh though, especially the International House of Pancakes!
