Submitted by: Bill H.
Destination: Glacier National Park, MT
About this photo: This was taken within Glacier National Park and is a view of St. Mary Lake with Wild Goose Island in the middle. The color of the water just jumped out at you which is why I took around 50 pictures from this point.
Best deal found: If you are willing to drive around 30 miles to get into the park, staying in Kalispell is considerably cheaper than lodging in the park. The drive into the park is worth the view and the savings.

Destination: Kahakuloa Village, NW Maui
About this photo: A little village in the hills of NW Maui.
Best deal found: Julia’s Banana Bread, just across the street! Best on the planet they claim, and I had to agree. OK, so $6 a loaf might not “sound” like a deal…but it was hot from the oven, with fresh picked bananas, served in the middle of the jungle, far from town. Best deal on earth, at that place and time! 🙂

Destination: Puerto Rico
About this photo:
Where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic: This photo was shot at Jacinto’s Well in Isabela, PR. Legend has it that long ago, farmer Jacinto saw his cow falling into the well and tried to save her. Unfortunately both fell in the well. The site was breathtaking and refreshing. My friends said that this is a great place to surf as well.
Best deal found: The flight was $369, roundtrip. I went to visit friends so I stayed for free. Visiting friends and having them visit you is great!
