While on vacation, you can save a lot of money on food by picnicing along the way. Before leaving The House, pack lunchmeat and cold drinks in the cooler, bring along bread and chips or whatever else you might want to eat. As you are traveling, stop at roadside parks for lunch instead of expensive restaurants. This also gives you some time to stretch your legs while enjoying the fresh air. Kids can run off some energy and play. Stop at grocery stores along the way to replenish your cooler.
