Everybody loves a bargain, especially when it comes to traveling with family—the cost of hotels, dining and activities can really add up quickly! The good news: if you travel with a keen eye and pay attention to packages and deals, you won’t have to sacrifice important amenities or lose that ineffable look of wonder on your kids’ faces. We’ve rounded up 10 places where you’ll get the biggest bang for your buck, so flip through the album below to see them all.

Take a Hike with Four Seasons Guides – Across the U.S.

Sign up for a beginner-level backpacking tour, a base camp and lodge-based hiking tour, or a day hiking tour and experience a national park or monument like you’ve never seen it before. Qualified guides will lead your family through the Grand Canyon, Havasu Falls, Paria Canyon, Utah Canyons, Yosemite or Sedona. The Beginner Rim Trail Day Hike, for example, is over nine miles one way (shuttle back) and the tour includes transportation, a picnic lunch, trail snacks, day packs, trekking poles and a licensed (and fun!) trail guide. A considerable discount is offered for multiple members in a group so if you have a big family, this is the tour to take!
