 How to take a vacation economy style

We've been wanting to take a short vacation for a while; needed a get a way from the grind but didn't want to spend a fortune doing it.

We took stock of all our discounts, clubs, points etc and came up with a plan.  We had enough Southwest points to get almost a free ticket, booked our flights on the Internet with a get a way cheap fare.  Used gift certificates and points to our favorite hotel chain that also gives points for each stay and rented a car with our partners discount and AARP rate which saved lots of money.  The hotel had a cheap breakfast in the am and is centrally located.  There are a lot of things to do that are free in California…tickets to shows that are taping live, beaches etc but our most important reason for going to California is to visit with our sonny boy.  Counting the days until we leave….can’t wait for Spring to put a little Spring in our step.
