Free Vacation Guides

Guest Author - Nick Greene

While there are many quiet little getaway spots hidden away around the southeast, the tourism agencies of each state are not trying to hide their lights under a basket. They want you to visit their states, and even more importantly, spend your money. In order for that to happen, they are willing to give you something for free; tourism advice. Almost every state in the US has created its own vacation guide and they're all willing to send it to you for free. Just ask.

Alabama's guide claims to be able to help you with short or long trips from family vacations to golf getaways. They divide their information on activities, attractions and accommodations into four regions of the state; North, Central, South and Gulf Coast. You can request that a hard copy be mailed to you or view it online.

Whether you're looking for the perfect day trip, a weekend getaway or a full fledged vacation, the Georgia guide can be a huge help in making your plans. You'll find information on Georgia's most popular cities and towns, attractions, events and activities. Learn about your lodging and dining options and prepare to catch some of the best events in the country.

The South Carolina guide purports to be a "virtual road trip of the Palmetto State." You can learn more about each section of the state, including culture and history; lodging and dining; and adventures. South Carolina is known for its southern hospitality and their guide will explain why the state is “Made For Vacation.”

Besides the tourism agencies of each state, you have some other options for free travel information. First, don't forget your local library, where you can find great travel books from informative publishers like Fodor’s, Frommer’s, Lonely Planet and more. Just remember to treat these books kindly so that future travelers can enjoy them as well. Next, if you are a member of AAA (and if you're not, you should be), you can get a lot of great travel information, often including entire books for free. Finally, don't forget this very website. We have an ever expanding list of resources to make your travel planning easier.

So, what are your favorite free travel resources? Share with all of us in our forum. http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/769112#Post769112
