Submitted by: Chuck C.
Destination: New York City
About this photo: I saw many traffic control police – this one just stood there and watched as the pedestrian jay walked right behind the car whizzing through the intersection.
Best deal found: his was my first trip to NYC – used Airtran award to fly, used Priceline & got a room at the Algonquin Hotel (44th St & 6th Ave) for $158.

Destination: Sedona, AZ
About this photo: Taken of my son as he rode to Cathedral Rock in Sedona on a family vacation this April.
Best deal found: The incredible Sedona scenery: Free!


Submitted by: Lauren O.
Destination: Las Vegas, NV
About this photo: The fountains outside of the Bellagio put on a show every 30 minutes during the day and every 15 minutes at night. It’s a beautiful hotel, inside and out.
Best deal found: The Sunday lunch buffet at the Wynn is delicious. At $39 per person, it’s not exactly cheap, but you get your money’s worth with all fancy food and for $6 more you get unlimited champagne and mimosas.


Submitted by: Janet C.
Destination: Myrtle Beach, SC
About this photo: A gray fox asleep in a tree at the zoo within the amazing Brookgreen Gardens. All the animals and birds at the zoo are bred in captivity or rescued and rehabilitated. The gardens themselves are glorious and the sculptures and foutains within the gardens make you feel as if you were in Europe.
Best deal found: Cheap drinks and shrimp at the outside bar at the local hangout The Hot Fish Club in Murrels Inlet.


Submitted by: Theodore M.
Destination: Portugal, Morrocco
About this photo: Last November my fiance’ and I traveled 12 days, 1800 miles through Portugal and a stint into Morrocco. While in Morrocco we went into an 900 year old medina. I snapped off this pic of a arabic gentleman looking in a doorway. Morrocco is magical!
Best deal found: My best deal was the Clark Howard website. We used it everyday for 3 months before the trip. We used every tip he gave us and it saved us hundreds of dollars. Our round trip airfare to and out of Lisbon was $722 each after taxes. We rented a car and got our hotels using all of Clarks suggestions. He must have saved us $1000. Thank you so much! I listen everyday!

 
Submitted by: Linda O.
Destination: St. Mary’s, GA
About this photo: Went to St Marys for a quick little get away. We went during the month of February was a bit chilly, but it is also the same time they celebrate with a Mardi Gras Celebration in the streets off the piers. Had a great time the locals are very nice.
Best deal found: We found a small local magazine with coupons & we went to a place called The Pineapple Patch- make your own pottery got a great deal & had fun!


Submitted by: Janet A.
Destination: Belize
About this photo: This picture is me and my cousin who lives on the island. I also have two more cousins living there. San Pedro Ambergris Caye which is the largest island in Belize, and the main destination for travelers to this Western Caribbean nation, is an excellent wonderful vacation spot. As you fly the 35 miles to San Pedro, your little plane soars over several islands, including Hen and Chicken Cayes, the larger Hick’s Cayes, and then Caye Chapel (site of a new small golf course, the only course in Belize). The large caye just north of Chapel is Caye Caulker, the second-most developed and most-populated of Belize’s islands after Ambergris. Some flights make a brief stop at Caulker before going on to San Pedro. If you travel by a speed boat, it takes approximately an hour from Belize City to Amergris Caye. Ambergris Caye isn’t a large island. It’s 25 miles long and only 4 miles wide at its widest point. Much of the island is low mangrove swamp, and there are a dozen lagoons.
Best deal found: I purchased some home made wines which were $6.00 USD. I think that is an excellent deal. Then too, I was able to get my hair done for $10.00 USD PS: One thing I must say is you get $2.00 Belizean dollars in exchange for $1.00 USD, but my deal was wonderful and great.
