And I see it is also you and your family's aswell lol) and your videos having been giving me huge insight. Can't wait to go on a trip soon!

  • Heather Taylor

    Melea do you prefer VRBO or Air BnB? Also where did you stay in St. George? That looked perfect for our family trip next summer!!!

  • Kayleigh Kill

    You said St. George and my heart fluttered! My grandparents live there and I love visiting them! Zion is my favorite national park, and TUACAHN is so amazing!!!

  • Ami Mendoza

    i live in Miami so we always have the free ocean but i do agree with the VRBO.. it is the best. We rent a really big home with a pool in Orlando all the time. Really affordable and comfortable. especially if traveling with children and pets.

  • Amanda Owens

    To save money on vacation we try to bring or buy our food. Oh, and I watch for travel deals before hand.

  • Brynn Whitchurch

    We use VRBO anytime we can. If we have to stay in a hotel I always look for one with free breakfast

  • Morgan McRory

    I would LOVE to do a family reunion like that with my family! (490/4)/4 nights = ~$31/person/dayPretty good. Now I just gotta convince the fam to start saving

    • The Melea Show

      I've seen houses as low as $40 a night on VRBO and Airbnb—might not be as nice of a place. But cheap places are definitely out there depending on what you are looking for. The house was big enough for everyone to have their own bed between 5 families. But we've done something with 2 or 3 families and the cost has been really similar!

    • The Melea Show

      It was a preview night special–the night before the official opening of the parade. But last year they did a special for July… so just sign up for their emails and check their website for deals.

    😫😫😫 I hope that I saw your video before we spend 2000AED which is about 550$ for just 2 days .
