Great web sites to help make it easier to plan an awesome trip:

Bed and Breakfast
For those looking to blend in with the locals, check out the wide range of bed and breakfast accommodations that your family will enjoy.  You pick through their listings by location that you are interested in. The site has listings throughout the country.

Something you don’t find in too many places are ranches.  If you want to have your family take in the whole out west experience, you may want to check out these sites.  Their accommodations and activities range from horseback riding, campfires and lots of outdoor fun for everyone. If you have any experience unlike any other, share it so others can benefit from it too!

There is nothing like camping to bring you closer to nature. Some families really enjoy seeing the country one campsite at a time.

Let us know of any recommendations, so we can pass it on to others.
