|I always realize what "Big Sky Country" means when I'm here.|
Vacationing at relatives is a different type of vacation, and generally very dependent on the relatives and the place. We are lucky that some of our relatives own property is the big expansive state of Texas. Just like our cruises, we try to work in time in my husband's vacation schedule to visit the South and spend a week a rural area with built in recreation. Maybe for those who live and work on ranches, it isn't a vacation; but to those of us from suburbia having a lake, horses, and chickens literally in the backyard is unique!

Of course living at the beach we find some of the opposite effect. Family who lives in the mountains or from other areas, come to visit us to see the beach and our area. It is a good way to create win-win situations in vacationing and can help you save money most of the time.
My advice, take inventory of your relatives and very good friends and see who lives where. You never know, you might work in a visit and a vacation in 1 trip!
