In California last year, I met a large family, (parents and foster parents to 8 children under 10)and they were very nice, so we chatted while in line. She told me that they estimated a minimum savings of $1000.00 over two weeks on their vacation by researching places where kids eat free. She shared a website with me called My Kids Eat FreePlease Log In to view this link! and it looks pretty good. They also have a page linked on their site of locations where gets either get in free or get to stay with their parents for free. What a great idea in this economy.
